Favorite Fall Essentials

Hello, dear Di is Organized readers.

Today, to celebrate the first day of Fall in style, I have a talented interior designer, Laura Hodges, as a guest. She shares with us some of her favorite Fall essentials. Enjoy the reading!

Did you feel it yet? That slight chill in the air that instantly conjures images of the leaves changing colors and the feeling of a cooler season approaching. I love the freshness of Spring and the free-spirited Summer months, but Fall might be my favorite season for inspiration in color and style. It’s also a time when everyone starts coming together for intimate gatherings of family and friends. Let’s take a look at how Fall can inspire a more beautiful and functional home with a few of my favorite finds.

The colors of the Fall 2017 runway are perfect for bringing a little fashion and style into our lives. A personal favorite of mine any time of year, deep and velvety burgundy tones are easy to bring home in the form of a comfy throw, colorful tableware or even these gorgeous GreenTree tapered candles.


Elegant, confident and sophisticated, burgundy wraps us in its warmth and comfort. Accented by vases of goldenrod or soft golden grasses, burgundy is a quintessential jewel tone that I love for transitioning to the cooler months.

Dark florals are another beautiful accent as the cooler seasons approach. A counterpoint to their fresh and vibrant Spring cousins, these moody and romantic floral print throw pillows from Lulu & Georgia are definitely on my favorites list.

Plaids of all combinations were all over the runways for the Fall 2017 shows and this trend is one I don’t mind bringing home since it’s a classic and tailored pattern. A plaid scarf, kitchen towel or throw blanket, like this Asher Plaid Throw from Lulu & Georgia, are simple accents and, combined with a faux fur throw pillow (or two), can really add some seasonal character to a room.

Switch it up by adding an extra layer of coziness and welcome guests to stay a while with a soft, chunky throw like this Henley Wool Throw from Serena & Lily.

What’s your favorite part of Fall? Welcome the color, style, and coziness of this season into your home and enjoy all that Fall brings your way this year.
