And they’re off! In these parts, school doesn’t begin until after Labor Day, so that first day definitely feels like a signal that fall is right around the corner. To me, it’s also a time to refocus on my own plans and goals, like getting my design business and portfolio up and running along with more regular blog postings. To that end, I’ve been working on featuring room board and color schemes more often, because I think they’re so helpful when trying to envision a space and pull elements together for a cohesive plan.
This room board is inspired by the natural elements and warm tones that we’re all drawn to this time of year. World Market is killing it lately with their selection of low-cost kilim area rugs and I used the Alina rug as a jumping off point for a warm, textural space. It’s only 5 x 8, but would look great layered over a larger natural weave jute rug.
I pulled the olive green, golden yellow and red from the rug to create a cozy and warm fall palette. And of course, an autumn room wouldn’t be complete without a chunky hand knit throw!
