How to Work Color and Texture into Fall Decorating

Fall is the entryway to the holiday season – friends, family and entertaining. If you’re looking to dress up your space, adding in some texture and warm color is a great way to do it. Consider the floor, your starting point.

Did you know that most designers use a colorful rug to set the tone for the entire room they are pulling together for a client? We’ve created a few examples from our Fall 2017 Collection to show you how to DIY a look that works for you.

Love the idea of including jacquard woven rugs but not sure where they’d fit in your home? You can use them to add a hint of luxury to your living room, library or den, even the bedroom.

Inspired by our vintage fabric, our jacquard-woven rugs feature a lustrous design crafted of wool with a cut-pile design in a luxurious viscose. A true study in texture and tone, our new Crescendo jacquard-woven rug will dress up any space. Have you ever tried layering two rugs?

It’s actually easy to do. First, you need to select a more refined foundational rug, perhaps with a single, consistent pattern, like our Tweedy (shown below), and pair it with a larger print that has some additional texture, like Crescendo. The result is a plush, rich look that adds drama to your space.

PalazzoRug
Try a single piece. Bold, yet elegant, our Palazzo rug works beautifully on its own to dress up a room. Taking its cue from vintage fabric, Palazzo features a trellis pattern crafted of wool with a cut-pile design in luxurious viscose. Plus, the neutral colors mean you can play more with a variety of colorful accents.

Another great option would be to take our Giardino rug which, on its own, ushers in sophistication. The floral motif may be all the pattern you want to play with in your space, but when you want to take the next step, you can easily add a  foundational rug underneath later.

GiardinoRug
The rich blue found in Giardino can be considered a base tone, which means there are a variety of colors that you can use to compliment it. Think gray, lighter blues, orange, deep pink, or look to the greens.

Here’s a cheat sheet to help you out.

If you also like to switch out accessories with the season, you can really pull a look together by adding in some Zoe, Sloan and Cassandra pillows for a study in contrast and texture. Concentric squares of multicolored satin ribbons lend graphic impact on our lovely Zoe pillow. Layer in the sloan accent pillow for additional texture and dimension. Not one, but two hand-embroidery techniques pop atop our Cassandra pillows sumptuous silken fabric to create a beautifully exotic damask motif-and a work of art for your sofa.

Once you feel a comfort level working with color, texture and pattern, you can pull together some really fabulous spaces in your own home.

Great Gift Ideas For the Summer BBQ

Think of a BBQ as a luncheon or dinner party where shorts are the perfect attire.  And while the event is casual, a gift of thanks conveys your appreciation for the time your hosts have invested in ensuring you have a great afternoon or evening.  Great gifts are thoughtful, creative, and reflect the spirit of the gathering while not creating more work for the hosts.  Here are a few items that are inexpensive, and help to make an outdoor evening a breeze for the hosts.

Bottle Opener(s) – These are great gifts, and extensions of the hosts’ taste.  And there never seems to be one handy, does there?  From fancy monogrammed to dollar-store common, this is a gift everyone will use and your hosts will appreciate.  Hang a fun bottle opener from a collection of craft-brewed seasonal beer and you will be the guest of honor!

Citronella Candles – These back-yard staples are available in a variety of taste levels when it comes to their packaging.  From fabulous and detailed to galvanized buckets, there are so many options accessible because theses candles really help to keep mosquitoes at bay.  And while no one may admit it, everyone loves the smell if only for its ability to conjure memories of childhood summers.

Pitch in – Offer to arrive early if extensive set up is required, or stay later to ensure that the cleanup is accomplished.  It’s a great way of saying thank you, spending quality time with family and friends, and often times the work detail is just as much fun as the party!

Always bring ice – There is never enough.  Never.
