Feeling Fall with Fabulous Friends

BHG

 

This month, we’re welcoming fall, in our homes and in our lives overall. We don’t know about you, but, for us, welcoming fall means opening the windows, letting fresh air in and savoring the crispness in the air.

Thom Filicia

 

Welcoming fall is about adding cozy throws and great textures and favoring shades of tan and pumpkin, gold and creams, the richer hues that correspond so well with the changing leaves and the sun that’s setting just a little earlier already.

Sotheby’s Realty

 

Fall is also a fabulous time to celebrate the change of seasons with a fun soiree, which, of course, means getting the kitchen in tip top shape.

Williams-Sonoma

 

We’ll admit it: We like to leave the cooking to the professionals. But the right, gorgeous cookware that makes the food taste as good as the pots and pans look is a necessity when getting ready for a change of season celebration.

Evars and Anderson

 

I’m in the market for new barstools right now, and these adorable cushions welcome fall in this kitchen with aplomb! A pretty (and delicious!) arrangement of seasonal fruits and veggies makes for a stunning centerpiece, no flowers required.

One Kings Lane

 

One of the things on our minds right now is hanging some new pieces of art to really get our houses party ready. These fall tones are very of the moment!

Coastal Living Magazine

 

Speaking of works of art, what a perfect setting for a fall fete!

Tory Burch

 

When it comes to parties, getting dressed is half the fun! This Tory Burch outfit hits all the high notes of equestrian style. 

Kate Spade NY

 

Speaking of animal-inspired fashion, this display at Kate Spade is so fabulous! It seems like leopard is everywhere we look this fall. So we must include it in our outfits!

Rose and Ivy

 

While cocktails and dinner are always fabulous, sometimes having a few good friends for a great cup of coffee is all it takes to turn an ordinary day into a celebration. A mix of antique silver and new pottery, we couldn’t love this juxtaposition any more!

Tom Ford Favorites for Fall

 

Our friend (He’s so not our friend. But girls can dream, right?) Tom Ford has assembled the ultimate fall collection for making our faces look fabulous no matter what the season holds.

BHG

 

And the brilliant minds from BHG have so many great tips for the perfect paint tips to transform any home for fall. We’re obsessed with Golden Ginger. It may very well be the new not-quite-white we all need so much!

Savoring Fall with Hello Lovely!

Good morning, chic readers! We are so excited to welcome our friend Michele from Hello Lovely to our corner of the world today. If you love home decor, DIY, lifestyle and interior design (which we know you do!) you must, must go over and check out Michele’s fabulous style. Her blog is an absolute feast for the eyes and we know you will be as taken with her site as we are! Now, without further ado, let’s check out Michele’s tips for making this our best fall ever!

Hello, lovely Design Chic friends! It’s such a pleasure to bring you fall inspiration ideas early in the game!

Like you, I’m a longtime reader and great admirer of Beth and Kristy’s flavor of Design Chic. I especially appreciate their celebration of and reverence for home and family…my favorite things in the whole world.

I’m Michele, a writer/artist/decorator from Chicagoland, and I author the decor blog Hello Lovely. Here in the Midwest, we take our autumns very very seriously, and truth be told, I have only just begun to appreciate all its wonder since I tend to favor the summer sunshine and dread the cold.

But no more! In midlife, I have discovered a fondness for the falling leaves, the crisper air, and fields of pumpkins. In fact, it is technically still summer as I type these words, yet I have already visited the apple orchard several times, purchased vintage decor from fall flea markets, and painted mini pumpkins for our mantel!

If you are also eager to begin savoring the beauty of fall, I hope you will enjoy the following round-up!

8 Lovely Ways to Savor Fall Beauty

1. Walk daily through crunchy fallen leaves.

This is a surefire way to feel at once young and carefree (if only temporarily) again.

2. Read a book in a peaceful corner of a pretty park.

It can feel beyond luxuriant to simply slip away with a book or Ebook and be transported by a story.

(Slightly South of Simple, anyone?)

3. Visit an apple orchard and try a new variety.

I just had my first taste of Early Beauty apples (above) at my favorite orchard in Poplar Grove, IL

4. Think beyond neutrals for your fall garden decor.

A mass of multicolored mums or other autumn flowers is so happy chic!

5. Steal fall decor inspiration from a chic interior.

During our stay at the Park Hyatt Vendome in Paris, the sophisticated palette of cognac, bronze, and warm gold in our suite offered an inspiring combination of rich autumnal tones to riff on at home.

6. Sneak away in October for a night at your favorite hotel.

We often forget that even a short time away from the job and homebase may be all we need to re-charge, re-group, or rejuvenate from our work lives which often get hectic closer to the holidays.

7. Spend time with animals outdoors.

Whether your passion is dogs, cats, or horses, make it a priority to enjoy them unplugged and outdoors in the autumnal sunshine.

8. Bake something aromatic that speaks “fall” to you.

I bake bread all year round, but my favorite aroma of fall is an apple crisp bubbling away in the oven! (My recipe for “Boozy Pear-Apple Crisp” can be made with or without the ‘boozy’ and with gluten-free or regular flour.)

Are you excited to begin savoring the season of fall?

Whether you venture out in chic stilettos or hunker down at home…

I wish you all a blissful season, full of rich color and gentle peace.
