just came out with her watch list for Fall 2013 and I couldn’t wait to share it with you!
As in past seasons there is a direct link between the runways and the hallways.
Home decor is taking its inspiration from the fashion world
and it’s full of great crossovers.
TREND one>>>>>>PLAIDS AND HOUNDSTOOTH
They’re definitely making a comeback
but SO much more edgy than what you remember.

I’ve always been a fan!
Toile and leopard make such a nice couple
And so fun with the royal blue spots!
This could end up in MY house…
Not for the faint of heart, there’s a certain aggressiveness to the new metals
that takes them to a whole new level.
I see an obvious crossover to the trend in womens shoes with spikes and studs!
With colors like turquoise and scarlet,
we get a sense of the rich depth of these new jewel tones.
This Russian Lynx faux fur pillow is just the thing
to add a jolt of texture to a sofa.
We’re going to see a lot more of this trend.
It speaks to our need to stay cozy and warm.
I know it’s almost Spring out there, but
it’s still fun to look at what’s coming this Fall!
Keep watching for how these five trends start cropping up
on other great furnishings for the home in the coming months.
And remember, you heard it here, FIRST!
