We asked some of our favourite designers for their choice accessory picks for fall.
Cashmere, chess and a crackling fire. We went to the professionals to get their coziest recommendations for a perfect fall season.
This fall is all about vintage looks for Karin Bohn of House of Bohn. “We’re seeing a big throwback to the 70s and 80s. Dusty rose, burgundy, camel, mixed warm metals and rich wood tones are everywhere—we love it!” These blush pink velvet Lilith pillows from CB2 embrace vintage inspiration with an art-deco gold foil design.
Sticking with the theme of warm metallics, House of Bohn’s Todd Mitchell encourages adding a glow to your room by mixing and matching colours from West Elm’s latest collection of mercury candleholders.
Gillian Segal of Gillian Segal Design recommends spending some quality time with this fun and functional Banswara marble chess set from CB2. “We recently placed this set in a client’s home and thought it looked amazing. I love that it’s an accessory you can actually use.”
It doesn’t get more luxe than curling up with cashmere! For an edgy take on classically neutral ivory, Segal also suggests this instartia-knit spider pillow from Rani Arabella.
Not sure about metallics? Try one of the beautiful hand-dyed indigo blankets designer Amanda Hamilton found on a recent trip, hand-woven by artisan women using traditional West African mud cloth. “Each one has their own story; their blankets are delicate and imperfect.” Just the way we like them.
Store your softest throws, latest knitting project, or just about anything else in this FLÅDIS seagrass basket from Ikea, designed with handles you can turn up or down. “We like the versatility, aesthetic—and of course, the price,” says Hamilton. “It adds a bohemian touch without breaking the bank.”
