Fall in July
July 22, 2010
Ok! Let’s jump right in…I am sooo ready for FALL!!
I know! I know! We aren’t even through July yet, but this happens every year.Just when I get enough sun and flowers I begin longing for crisp air and cool breezes; fires and crunchy leaves.Not only do I enjoy the nostalgia of fall, but I enjoy the change in décor and textiles that inevitably follows.Who doesn’t love snuggling with their favorite blanket perhaps while watching a scary movie as October approaches?
Of course you can’t talk about fall without talking about color.While bright hues fade into warm yellows, browns, and reds, it feels good to add some warmth to your home even using those very colors!When you start to think about the change that accompanies this season you begin to realize that fall is a prelude, a journey taken in preparation for the winter that lies not too far ahead.With cooler weather and visions of snowflakes dancing in ones’ head we should all be reminded of the coming retreat and refuge to be taken in our homes; becoming more acquainted with all things residing within the walls that surround us.
Alas, it truly is the time you will begin to see fall fashion premiering on the racks, and fall designs in the likes of Pottery Barn, West Elm, CB2, and Design Within Reach catalogs showing up at your door.If you did in fact recently peruse the West Elm fall catalog you might have noticed something exciting and new.It seems even the latest of furniture designs and designers are continuing to reinforce and embrace the ever unique and tempting combination of vintage with modern.All over this catalog you will find classic mid century modern pieces, rough industrial charms, and the smooth polish of a newly lacquered modern piece coming together to create a space that is nothing short of sensational!
I, of course, am thrilled!Offering my customer a one of a kind vintage piece that then works with already existing décor and new apparels is what Domino is all about.As it were, Domino is offering new fall and winter designs, furniture, colors and inspirations, making their debut the first weeks of August!
As far as I am concerned, welcome fall! Bring us a season full of cool nights and warm beginnings.
