Design Trends for FALL

This week the temperature in New Orleans, Louisiana plummeted below seventy degrees.  For us, this marks the beginning of Fall.  A seasonal refresh is an easy way to welcome cooler weather --  throws and blankets are unpacked, summer slipcovers are abandoned, and stronger colors and fabrics wind their way to the forefront of our conscious when we want to feel cozy and enveloped in our living space.  Here are our favorite ideas for a fall/winter update, including some of the hottest design trends this year.  Our gallery director, Collin Magee has included a selection from our current inventory that fits each trend -- enjoy!

OUR FAVORITE 2017 FALL TRENDS:

BLUSH:   you can call it blush, you can call it rose, and a lot of experts have dubbed it "millennial pink"...whatever you want to call it, we love it!

FIREPLACE AESTHETICS: It only makes sense that fall would bring us to fireplaces.  Fireplaces are often the heart of a living space, and creating a focal point with mantel decor or artwork can center a room.

METALLICS  Who doesn't love shiny things?  I have a strong magpie gene and can't get enough shimmer in my life, and this season is full of home decor and accents that satisfy the need for some glitz.

WOOD + FUR + NATURAL ELEMENTS  You don't need to believe in Santa to bring wood and fur into your decorating scheme.  Home decor magazines are full of ideas and advice on integrating natural or organic pieces into your existing space.  Look for antlers, shells, wood, fur, and fluffy textures in macrame and throws.
