Falling for Fall Textures with Home Accessories

Cable Knit Throw Pillows

Once the school bell rings and Labor Day comes and goes, I start thinking about Fall inspirations and home decor.

We find more and more that the link between what we wear on our bodies and what we crave in our home are often times linked.

Personally, for Fall, I long for the softest cable knit sweaters, throws and pillows…

Leave it to Ralph Lauren to provide a cable knit style rug with his Spinnaker design.

My eye wants to go from the shiny reflections of summer to the textures of fall.

With the continued surge toward Global Design, intricate, original patterns and textures, it’s time to trade out some mirrored and shiny reflective finishes of summer for texture & pattern with nubby home accessories.

There’s a gorgeous array of winter whites from ceramics to macrame and all manner of knotted accessories.

When you think white, it does not have to be glossy white, think creamy and textures that seduce your eyes and then your hands.

Now to bring it home, accessorize with a new ottoman and pull one up beside your coffee table or fireplace.

Add a tray and serve cocktails or tea…

Guest Blogger, Bohemian Industrial Mix

Hello, everyone! It’s Mari here, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a fabulous online place to discover ceiling lights, pendant lights, and other light fixtures, along with lighting ideas and trends. I’m so excited to be here visiting at Jennifer Davis Interior Design.

My guest post today is about a look that’s attracting renewed interest right now and one I am particularly fond of ó Bohemian with a touch of industrial style.†As always, Bohemian style is in the eye of the beholder. These creative and eclectic spaces are all about combining the very personal (sometimes quirky and colorful) Bohemian look with elements of industrial style. Many love this mix of styles because it follows the heart with no rules. Bohemian industrial style offers the amazing opportunity for rooms to continually evolve over the years to become anything that can be imagined. Here are eight spaces that illustrate the many faces of this interesting creative style. Please enjoy!

Bohemian Industrial

This industrial space takes on a Bohemian look with a massive bead chandelier, an eclectic mix of chairs and lots of vintage found objects. I love the pale blue gray palette against the brick wall and tall metal windows.

Bohemian Industrial

A totally contemporary take on Bohemian industrial style, this living room is a lovely mix of repurposed and new furnishings. Mattress sofas in soft blue hues bring a Bohemian feel atop wood pallet bases.

Here, exposed pipes and ductwork in the ceiling shout industrial while furnishings and accessories whisper vintageóa perfect combination for Bohemian industrial dÈcor.

An industrial space gets the full Bohemian treatment with vintage furniture, chandeliers and eclectic found objects.

An unexpected mix of lighting fixtures adds a quirky Bohemian feel to this industrial kitchen with open restaurant style shelves and a stainless steel table.

Bohemian Industrial

At once rustic and industrial, with just a touch of Bohemian whimsy in the wall sconce and shaving mirror, this bath is totally captivating.

Bohemian Industrial

Going in an entirely different direction, this bath with a distinctly feminine vibe could also be described as Bohemian industrial. With soft lilac touches, the vintage metal lockers and metal trunk are unexpected elements.

With a corner full of Bohemian color and pattern, this vintage living space gets an industrial feel from metal windows. One of the two oversized metal floor lamps also has a cool industrial look.†Images†1†|†2†|†3†|†4†|†5†|†6†|†7†|†8

Mosaic Madness, Wall & Floor Patterns

Bisazza Wall Mural
I’ve been long drawn to beautiful mosaic tile patterns. Those little sparkly gems and intricacies make me want to set up a table and play with tiles. More recently I explored the Bisazza full wall sized panels as pictured above and they are every bit of pop or glamour that you want, depending on your selection. Currently I’m working on multiple bathroom layouts. We’ll be varying simpler geometric mosaics and versions of the same stone with lots of whites and that means a lot of pattern play to keep it interesting. Long the lover of whites, grays and blacks especially for bathrooms, here’s a  clean version of mostly geometric and patterned mosaics Always bedazzling, here’s a look at what some current mosaic & tile inspirations look like at our offices as we begin making choices for our Hidden Hills Remodel…

Love this incredible and classic pattern that can be used in small floor areas or for a backsplash… The 3-D quality is like an Esher drawing and adds a lot of excitement.

For those looking for a more subtle approach, these mosaic borders featured at Waterworks are elegant and detailed… the perfect accent to any clean and elegant space when your working with statuary white marbles and various white marble palettes.

Having a love affair with these mosaic borders. By simply adding the detail to the border it’s the perfect way to add just a touch of mosaic to any room. Those featured above can be found at Walker Zanger.

The sweetest mosaic in the Waterworks collection above. Love the mix of honed and shiny tiles that give these gems their sparkle. How sweet and glam to add these gems to a little girls bath.

This tile mosaic is comprised of glass, iridescent and matt and metalic that sparkles like a clear cut diamond… With names like Whisper, Oxygen & Platinum this blend makes me want to soak away my day with a twinkle in my eye… This is also found at Walker Zanger.

This mosaic is quite handsome. Although it will likely not make it into our project, the pattern is lovely as a a field tile or what we call a carpet or rug in a bathroom. You create a border with a this as a center and voila a tile carpet is born.

Check out these crazy water jet wall panels at Ann Sacks… I might select simpler designs, but I love the panel idea… What about you? Love it or pass?

OK now we’re talking wild, but the joy of hitting the market place as a designer is the joy of discovery and finding some of the furthest extremes and levels of an incredible art form, the tile mosaic.

On another note, also having a love affair with glass tile and their accompanying mosaics… perfect for our pool bath… Stay tuned for my next blog post for more on glass tile and glass mosaics.

New Designs for DeGournay Handpainted Wallpaper…


A special as an English rose, De Gournay handpainted wallpaper from across the pond are the penultimate wallcovering. Their patterns and papers are unique in that you can customize your design by selecting from various backgrounds of fine papers or silks. De Gournay papers are based on 18th Century historic chinoisserie designs and scenes, others are more contemporary. Some of you may be familiar with De Gournay, but do read on for a sneak peak at one of their latest creation, “Abstract Pines”.

“I indulged with one wall in my London living room covered in a gorgeous pattern.” says Gwyneth Paltrow in a recent Elle Decor Article, entitled 12 Things She Cannot Live Without.

 

De Gournay wallpapers can be historic or made more modern with a unique twist of color they offer. From vibrant red to the most exquisite blue backgrounds, De Gournay
will also add further antiquing to any of their designs.

The photo above was featured in AD of Sharon & Ozzie Osbourne’s home.

This Koi Fish design below is simply magical…

One of the best features is the handmade quality & selection process that goes into choosing the background and flower colors… Each one truly becomes a unique painting.

Here in Los Angeles, we have the experience and wisdom of boutique owner, Nicky Rising of Nicky Rising Ltd. on Melrose Avenue to help even the most astute designer through the process.

These wallpaper panels dress to impress and like fine dressing they do come with a price… Make no mistake, this is a high-end product and sold by the panel. A typical dining room can take about 20 panels, check with your designer.

For the traditionalists at heart, you’ll fall in love with the scenic views in these beautiful sepia-toned designs. I’m especially fond of “Early Views of India” as pictured below…

As promised my favorite new design “Abstract Pine”… shown below in Gold and Silver.

If you fall in love with the images, the showrooms who display the large wing samples of De Gournay wallpaper will delight your eye and your heart. I recently borrowed some large panels to bring to my client’s home. After several months, our order is due imminently and I can’t wait to reveal the pics after installation in my client’s Dining Room.
