Getting back to that theme of color and texture, I wanted to add some layers of richness. I replaced all of our pillows with a mix of dark grey, cream and navy in lux velvets and crewel work. Before, our pillows had a slightly more boho|global vibe going on (see it here) and I wanted to bring in a little more sophistication to the space. Playing off of my blues, I added some yellow-gold coloured decorative wheat as a strong focal point against the booshelves, to draw your eye in, and to enhance the gold tones already in the space.
I just love how vibrant the color is in my ginger jar.
You can get a real sense of the richness these pillows bring to the space.
A small white pumpkin is perfect for this blue and white dish and is also the perfect balance with this color palette.
I love my books and using them to infuse color is another great way to layer a certain look or feeling into a space.
Other than the pillows, not much in this room is new for Fall. I added just a few simple touches of the season to warm it up – the wheat and a few small accessories go a long way.

Last stop is the kitchen, where the theme continues and where I have more ginger jars as well. I love my blue and white collection (which is continuously growing), and I hate to have to take it down, just to decorate for the season.
I like to try and incorporate it and find ways to work with it. You can see more of how I decorate with this classic beauty here.
The kitchen is open to, and faces the living room. Again, since there’s plenty of gold tones in this space, I used more yellow to play off of them. A few small white pumpkins, some ceramic and some real, add another subtle layer of the season.
I can’t get enough of these fresh figs and how pretty they are anywhere I add them. I’m especially loving them layered in here with the blues and gold tones.
Against the white subway tile wall, it’s such a crisp color palette.
You can catch a glimpse of more white pumpkins up there on our built-in shelf. This too, is a recent addition in our home. You can read all about it here and see the before of our kitchen if you never have.
I love how the yellow and blue catch the daylight in front of the windows. It reminds me of being outside in the crisp Fall air.
