An Autumn Refresh with Burke Decor

burke-decor-1-design-crush

 

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!

Atelier Février Rugs

atelier-fevrier-rugs-5-design-crush

 

These beautiful floor rugs by Atelier Février cost more than my first car (a 1987 VW Cabriolet convertible for those of you wondering), but goodness they’re a treat for the eyes. This is the kind of rug that people hang on the wall rather than lay underfoot. Each design features a modern look that’s been created with traditional craftsmanship.

Meteo

Meteo-1-Design Crush

 

I have this thing for floor rugs, and greatly wish I could afford a few more so they could be switched out occasionally. The latest target of my affections is the Meteo line, a collaboration between French designer Inga Sempé and Golran. The contemporary Persian designs feature three different soft, contemporary geometric patterns that are each available in three colors.

Shore Rugs

Shore Rugs-1-Design Crush

 

Outdoor rugs can be kind of a nightmare when you take the elements into consideration. Shore rugs are a new line of innovative rugs woven with a specially designed silicone cord that can be used both indoors and out, with some really fun color combinations in the mix. The handwoven rugs would be perfect by the pool or on your yacht (ahem).

Pampa

Pampa-1-Design Crush

 

Two photographers from different worlds and cultures with different visions somehow managed to join forces in the creation of Pampa. Together they bridge the gap between Argentina and Australia, exploring the finest handwoven rugs and cushions made by incredibly talented artisans. I’ll take one of everything, please.
