Making the Fall Style Transition with Our Friends from Julep!

Recently, we had the chance to work with our friends from Julep to design a style board around our favorite shade from their fall nail polish collection. With so many colors to choose from, we decided why just choose one color when we had 2 obvious winners? So, we decided to create two boards to show you what color trends we are into this fall and how they can easily transition from home décor to beauty and even to fashion. One look is a little soft while the other is totally glam! We’ll leave it up to you to decide which look takes the prize!

Fall Decorating Ideas

Elegant damask wallpaper, Chloe flats, a pale pink eye shadow by NARS and an effortless floor length silk skirt, makes “Clara” an easy color addition to both our fall wardrobe as well as our home décor.

 

Clara: This pretty beige/pink hue is romantic and soft and can easily weave its way from your wardrobe into your home. “Maddy” being one of our favorite summer shades made this an easy pick!

 

Fall Decorating Ideas

From a gorgeous Anthropologie coat we’ve had our eye on, to a fabulous bohemian scarf from ModCloth, it wasn’t hard for us to make the autumn shift from “Florence” a pretty mauve, to “Alaina” a stylish grey statement.

Alaina: Chic and sophisticated, this grey/purple hue is both glamorous and enchanting. With an irresistible vibe that can both stand out or lay at bay, this stylish hue will easily remain a fall staple!

Color and Home Decor Trends from Maison et Objet

Decor Ideas and Color Trends 2014

This September, the theme at Maison et Objet was Sharing. This uplifting theme explores the new ways that we grow as a creative community, networking and collaborating through the generous sharing, and liking icons of the digital age. We love this positive perspective on how our modern lives can benefit from the social tools of the digital world. As always, the designs at this Paris show wowed with a global mix of gorgeous colors, textures, styles, inspirations and innovations.

Organic Wood: Wood has always been a building staple, it is truly a timeless material. However, trends of the day reveal their tendencies in the finish of the wood, whether it is painted, stained, dark, rustic, or glossy. This year natural and unfinished wood, especially in light colors, as well as distressed and vintage wood looks dominated decor exhibits at Maison.

Heavy Metal and Warm Copper: Gleaming metals were adding an embellished brilliance to furniture, walls, objets d’art, lighting and tableware. Bronze and copper were especially prominent, bringing a burnished tawny glow to all sorts of lovely items. We have observed copper hues trending for a few seasons now, and the movement has continued to grow with luminous success.

Typography & Words: An important theme, one focused on by Maison et Objet themselves, is the notion of letters and words as art. “Writing is becoming a pictorial object that is filling spaces, surfaces and materials. Graphic and typographic effects are writing a feast of words that communicates with poetry and meaning and revives our social bonds” -Elizabeth Leriche This creative expression in the face of advancing digital lives can be seen in typography, and hand-written words as prints and artistic embellishments.

Color Spirit: The colors that captivated designers this year included an abundance of pretty midtone pastels with pops of bright accents like chartreuse. Blue and white were also especially prominent. Shibori indigo, delft porcelain blue, and vivid cobalt paired with crisp whites added a fresh yet classic contrast to walls, textiles, ceramics, accessories and floors.

Industrial Chic: Playing on the popularity of upcycling and DIY decor, distressed textures and factory inspired items were mixed in with gorgeous designs for a gritty-chic edge. Packing crates and practical items, like lockers, tools and exposed lightbulbs were found in unexpected design layouts for a touch of rebellion against convention. The items were often embellished with a fresh coat of paint or a metallic touch, accenting their raw industrial forms with a splashy detail. The winner of the Maison et Objet designer of the Year, in fact, was Tom Dixon, an industrial designer who created rose to fame with welded salvage furniture and “instantaneous factory” inspired designs.

We easily change up our wardrobe with the passing of seasons, so why shouldn’t it be the same for our home décor?

Just like layering our wardrobe, we can easily layer in some key pieces to our décor that will bring a little autumn home to stay. Today, we’ve pulled together our top 5 fall home decorating ideas for you to not only spice up your interior but bring some warmth to any area in your apartment or home.

Where brown is seen as dull, cognac is seen as glamorous! This warm, classy hue brings to mind autumnal bliss, where colorful leaves, cozy knits and days spent by the fire all lay at the forefront of our minds. So it’s no surprise that this toasty shade, reminding us of not only a steaming cup of coffee but our favorite pair of leather boots, has won a place on the Fall 2014 Pantone Fashion Color Report.

A perfect pair to so many colors, you might even call it a neutral! It has the ability to make black seem not so harsh, while also being able to bring out the true beauty of a vibrant red without making it too overbearing (as seen above). There are not many colors you can truly say this about, that can work so fluently alongside others while also being able to stand alone brilliantly!

What is seen in fashion can also transition over to the home décor market. From warm leather sofas, stand out headboards, vintage accessories and cultured brown walls, cognac creates an interior that is stylish and chic as well as pleasant and enjoyable to live in. Whether it is the main focus of a room or subtle addition, adding in touch of this feel-good color provides your home with a comfortable living space.

New England in the Fall via Etsy

If you’ve ever experienced New England in the Fall, you know the vibrant beauty that seems to suddenly appear out of nowhere, transforming busy highways and cottages by the sea into picturesque scenes of color. From gold toned leaves to the comfort of a fireplace to crisp cool nights spent in cozy sweaters, these are the things that make Autumn one of our favorite seasons. So why not invite some of the warmth and magic of the harvest season into your own home? With autumnal colors and natural accents, to decorative pumpkins and more, adding a touch of fall flavor to décor is very simple to achieve.

Bring Nature Indoors

Hampton Style Inspiration

Imagine yourself…toes in the sand, a warm summer’s breeze on your back, the sound of the ocean in the distance – this is the epitome of Hampton style. It’s about mixing clean, fresh hues with rustic outdoor elements, and surprisingly with wallpaper it’s not that hard to achieve!

Hampton style originates from the popular seaside vacation destination along Eastern Long Island in New York and tends to embody both a classic and contemporary décor style offset by natural and rustic influences. Colors tend to include both fresh and neutral tones that work to open up your homes interior to a light and airy feeling throughout. This makes linen décor and upholstery a popular choice both for its natural and casual look as well as its effortless appeal.

By starting with a neutral, linen textured wallpaper as seen from above, the stage is already set to create that perfect Hampton style getaway. By adding some imperfect touches such as driftwood accents or natural details that may include plants, shells or sea glass displayed in a jar, you have created the perfect combination of classic style meets rustic tranquility.

Adding a pop of light blue to décor is another way to achieve that breezy and serene vibe that seems to follow Hampton style. White and blue combos tend to bring ocean elements to the forefront with hues that remind of us glistening blue skies or the rippling enchantment of the ocean.

As each passing moment marches on, and history is written, so do our tastes evolve. While good design is truly timeless, it is a pursuit of happiness and inspiration to keep on top of the constantly emerging trends.Each year we look forward to Maison & Objet for a fresh perspective on home decor trends and the best showing of rising looks. It is the pinnacle of cutting edge interior design energy, where promising artists and visionary concepts mingle with the finest standards in the art of decor. Maison brings talent and influences from around the globe together for a show that is not to be missed! Soon after Fashion Week takes over NYC and we get to see how the home and garment trends intersect and play off of each other. Dominant colors, patterns and finishes emerge and we cannot help but be swept up in a la mode fascinations and artistic expression of the design world. Here are a few of our observations from the halls and runways this year.

Decor Color Trends 2014 as Observed by our Creative Director Paula Berberian at Maison et Objet

Colors! Pantone are the color authorities and our go-to resource for color trends.This year the color of the year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid and we have already seen the hue start to take off in everything from pillows to jewelry, wall decor, and clothes. Striking an equilibrium with the imaginative purple hue, pretty pastels like hemlock green, placid blue and soft violet are balanced with dazzling blue with a cobalt tendency, celosian orange, freesia yellow and cayenne red. Sand and paloma grey bring thoughtful neutrals to the mix for a sophisticated poise. We were certainly seeing a lot of orange on the runways at FWNY last week, as well as delicate blushing pinks and purples and olive greens with plenty of black, grey, cream and white. Walking the halls of Maison, pink was the belle of the ball. Deep coral pink tones, as well as mid-tone pink pastels were gracing home decor products across the boars. Mid tone pastels including sage, yellow and pale blues were also popular, in addition to plenty of timeless taupes, beige and grey neutrals.

Prints! Western prints and themes have been picking up traction. We have been seeing more antlers and quirky taxidermy influences in decor, as well as global versions of Southwestern prints. Think Ralph Lauren American cabin inspirations, with plaids, checks and ropes as well as animal pelts. Dhurries, colorful area rugs indiginous to India, were prevalent, layering floors with a mix of worldly patterns and contemporary prints. We are also seeing a lot of Tropicana inspirations like pink flamingos, bananas and palm trees. Subtle retro looks that have been simplified for a sophisticated, modern appeal are everywhere. In the same category, Geometrics reminisce on the 80′s, but with a fresh perspective. Flower prints took on a pixelated, blurry look for a futuristic yet pretty effect. Baroque influences were also evident across all sorts of home decor looks. Cultured, ethnic inspirations are still very much in. Beautiful blooming florals, watercolor florals and elegant textures were prevalent, as well as traditional designs with new techniques.

Building Materials, Textiles and Finishes: brass was plentiful, and gold, as well as heaps of copper and dark metals, along with feathers, wood, and stone, including marble and agate and chunky knits. Painted furniture is chic. Innovative DIY types are upcycling pieces that may have gone unnoticed with fresh colors. This trend has emerged way beyond white, with bright turquoise, chartreuse, yellow and bubblegum pink reinventing even the plainest of jane furniture into desirable pieces.

More Notable Trends: Accessories, especially lamps, were designed with soft faceted angles, like cut gems with obscure shapes. Pendant lamps continued to grow in popularity, now in even more colors. Wallpaper, including graphic designs, geometrics, glamour prints and trompe l’oeil effects like marble were taking walls to new levels of captivation. Dimensional accent effects like beads, sequins, and raised inks were also popping up on walls and textiles for a heightened interest in decor. Typography and graphic branding design, like retro neon signs, ironic logos and street-smart snowboarding and skateboarding graffiti style words were featured on the runways and in decor, too.
