Fall is officially upon us. It happens every season, my attraction to colours and textures is strongly influenced by the changes that take place with the weather outside. This must be a human thing or perhaps something that is more prevalent in a country where seasons vary so drastically.
Last spring, I was into fresh and lively colours. This fall, and it’s inevitable every year, I am drawn to deep hues and warm textures. Some people are into the classic fall colours that are reminiscent of the changing colours of the leaves. I like unexpected tones and surprising materials.
My advice to you? Be bold and don't be afraid to branch out and be impetuous this season. You never know, you might be thrilled with the results. If not, there’s always next season to erase any signs of temporary insanity.
Here are some images that I find inspiring and that I hope will do the same for you.

It can be as simple as colour blocking one wall with paint or wallpaper for dramatic effect and adding thick velvet curtains for instant warmth.

Use textured accents for a quick and easy update. Think wool and felt accessories. molo’s felt rocks are quirky little pieces that add lots of personality to a space and that ‘attract children and adults alike’. LoooLo’s organic wool cushions will have you sinking into warm goodness. Both Canadian designers!

Throw in gorgeous wall art and you’re all set! Love this dark and moody underwater pic by Ric Frazier. Just picture it in giant format.
