Fall is finally starting to (slowly) creep its way to the south and I couldn't be happier! I've been glued to my Pinterest page lately but, instead of fall decorations, I've been drooling over tailored spaces in neutral color palettes with lots of texture, beautiful antiques, and luxurious textiles. I've always been drawn to more masculine spaces and believe that you can create a "fall" feel in your home without resorting to kitschy decorations but rather a few key pieces that are classic and warm like throw blankets, pillows, birch logs, candles, dhurries and of course, fresh cut magnolia branches! This antiques filled Amagansett home, designed by architect and interior designer Jennifer Vaughn Miller, is a fabulous example of such a tailored, masculine aesthetic. Creamy white walls are a beautiful backdrop for an impressive collection of antiques, warm wood pieces, leather and linen furnishings and pops of brass, black and charcoal. Fresh flowers in vintage silver trophies are a beautiful way to add a feminine touch and a little bit of soft color. It's sophisticated and elegant, light and bright yet comfy and cozy. I can just imagine kicking back on that gorgeous tufted leather sofa with a glass of wine and a roaring fire, can't you?
Here are my picks for creating a similar look and feel in your home:
Happy Hump Day!
