4 Style Tips for a Cool Fall Living Room

How we created a cozy, stylish space that’s full of drama

With the change of season in full swing, we’re yearning for cozier spaces that feel at once moody and inviting. This fall, we’ve designed a living room that’s just that. It’s a snug space that’s full of drama, from striking black accents to rich upholstery in deep hues. This is a stylish room that transitions perfectly into fall, enticing us to stay in and host friends and family with hot drinks or curl up with a great book by the fire as the temperatures drop.

To offer up some inspiration on creating your own stylish haven this season, here’s a look at how we created ours:

1. We brought in plenty of black.
Black is always moody and striking. From matte metal frames to Onyx-stained wood to opaque, glossy stoneware, we’re big on black this season. In this space we used a lighter rug and added brighter toss cushions to strike a balance with the darker accents.

2. We mixed materials and textures.
Using a variety of materials and textures adds an eclectic feel. In our living room, we incorporated marble and wood surfaces, caning, brushed brass, soft velvet upholstery, and embroidered cushions for a space that is as appealing to the touch as it is on the eyes.

3. We balanced curved and geometric profiles.
We aimed for a mix of linear and curved pieces to create balance and allow better flow throughout the space. Here we paired rounded accent chairs with a modern, streamlined sofa and used rounded decor on a geometric etagere.

4. We created layers.
Some of our favourite new furniture pieces from our fall collection incorporate layered surfaces. Not only do these varying heights add dimension to a space, they offer much-needed flexibility when arranging books, decor, and any other important objets you may want to keep out on display.
