Interior Design: Christine Dovey's Fall Wish List
When it comes to decorating for fall, I love to add pieces to my home that help bring in a sense of coziness and warmth. Of course, I always keep budget in mind when changing things up seasonally.
For this year, I've collected a wish list of some of my favourite fall accessories. To start, I love the Barclay Butera Horn mirror, offered at 219. The shades of warm brown are an absolutely perfect addition for this time of year; as with any season, I insist of having mirrors in every room for the added sense of light, space and drama they provide…you simply can never have too many. I've also fallen head over heels for this shop’s pom pom blankets…perfect for cozying up with on those cool fall nights. And speaking of cozy, nothing adds warmth to a home like some gorgeous throw pillows; my current wish list on this front is made up of two Kelly Wearstler patterns (Feline and Barcelo) and a studded black number from one of my favourite shops, Black Rooster Décor. And while we’re on the topic of this fabulous store, their textured brass table lamp and black handwoven baskets are also on my autumn must have list. For the bedroom, Dunlin Home’s Matteo bedding is an absolute must; the ruffled set is available in a combination of beautiful warm neutrals, which makes it perfect for a fall scheme. Speaking of bedding and the like, I’m also lusting after an authentic Moroccan wedding blanket…such gorgeous textural addition to any room . And to finish off my current wish list, I’d love a L’Object crocodile candle to add in fall ambiance, as well as a one of a kind hand-woven tapestry to give some interest and coziness to the walls.
Re-decorating for fall doesn't need to mean spending thousands of dollars…with a few thoughtfully chosen accessories, a home can be instantly re-invented for this, and indeed any season.
