“Fall fashion is all about wearing layers, and the same holds true for interiors. Select a rich, deep color and then work in a variety of tone-on-tone textures, such as leathers, silky mohair throws, and soft hide rugs. Juxtapose these with organically shaped accessories in similarly colored metals and natural wood grains.” 

Amy Lau, interior designer


“I like to put cut beech-tree branches in old porcelain vessels and place gray candles in large hurricanes on the coffee table.”

Steven Gambrel, interior designer

"Fall calls for cozy fires, and when I design a room with a working fireplace, I think a lot about how it will be used. I like to create a low, loungy spot in front of it that will look good all year long.” 

Tori Golub, interior designer


“I switch out punchy, printed pillows with nubby solids, linen throws with cashmere, and floral-scented candles with something spicier.”

Gideon Mendelson, interior designer


“I like to switch out pillow and throw fabrics for a cozier look—I love Alt for Living’s Alpaca Bouclé. And I change candles, too: from fresh, clean scents to something woodsy, such as Feu de Bois by Diptyque.”

Timothy Brown, interior designer
