Tell me, do you change up anything in your home with the seasons? I do, but like to keep it minimal. Swapping out the bedding is usually first, followed by the rug and textiles in the living room. And boom, done. You don’t have to do big things to get an impact.
This autumn I chose a few pieces from Burke Decor to get my living room into cozy mode. The lifestyle and home furnishings company has a beautiful inventory, full of things inspired by design, function, and form curated from designers and artisans the world over. Spelled out: you can easily achieve a look that matches your aesthetic.
As you can see, I have a fair amount of color in my living room – mainly books and art – balanced out by neutral tones on the walls and furniture. I wanted something durable for the floor that could stand up to my dogs’ wet winter paws and roughhousing ways. When I saw this Natural Cape Cod Rug from Safavieh I knew it was a match. It’s soft and textural but woven of sustainably harvested sisal and sea grass that can take a beating. I really like how its pattern doesn’t compete with the others in the room and blends in with the flooring, keeping the space feeling bright and open.
I’ve been getting bolder when it comes to using pattern, but I usually stick with black and white because they mesh easily. These Avila Onyx Pillow by Villa Home feature handcrafted embroidery and the softest linen backing. (Bebe is clearly a fan!) They add a layer of textural interest to my basic navy/grey couch that it needs.
Here you can get a big picture peek at three of the four patterns in the living room, the other being this throw that’s been in high rotation. I think each piece comfortably holds its own while making you notice the others at the same time. Success!
As I mentioned, this throw is constantly out. I’ve also been using my salt lamp more and more as the days get shorter and shorter. And my favorite candle is back in the rotation for cooler weather, tobacco and patchouli.
I’m certain this will be the cleanest the entry will be until April! I recently hung a new mirror and have been taking full advantage of the small shelf it features, setting small vases (this one’s actually a beaker) full of flowers and small seasonal decor on it. That coat rack is bound to be overflowing soon.
Did you spy my Halloween decorations in some of the other photos? I tend to stick with a few favorite pieces indoors rather than go overboard. A few owls on the mantel, a garland, a few pumpkins and skulls. Oh, and a spider on the coffee table, because every house needs one of those.
I hope you’re hunkering down as the weather cools and are just as cozy as we are!
