It's a rude awakening for Manhattanites George Altman (Jeremy Sisto) and his daughter, Tessa, when they move from the busy city and into the suburbs in ABC's new comedy Suburgatory, but just because George went from walk-up to cul-de-sac doesn't mean he had to ditch his modern, urban style.
Ever since the pilot, I've been coveting George's gray tufted headboard. While masculine at first sight, it can feel effortlessly softer with a few floral or light-colored throws. But the reason I really love this headboard is because its fabric and subtle color are perfect for Fall!
If the typical Fall palette (orange, yellow, brown) is not your cup of tea, opt for moody monochromatic gray. Think Fall's shorter days, ominous clouds, and dark holidays. Too drab to be fab? Bring in shots of color with Anthropologie's Pendleton Throw ($248) or
JefDesigns Bubble Wool Rug ($120).
Just like adjusting your wardrobe for the cold and inclement weather, bring warmth to your home as well. West Elm's Upholstered Dhurrie Slab ($250, originally $299) is not only cozy enough to throw your feet on and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa, but the wool dhurrie patches add texture to any room. Also, leather chairs can be uncomfortably cold at first sit; instead, instantly relax on the wool Modern Florence Style Arm Chair ($360). And while Fall's nature motif is great, go a step further with wool and feature Needle Felted Acorns ($12 for six) in a glass vase or hang a Layered Fall Leaves Felted Wool Sweater Wreath ($14) on the door. It's a creative alternative to the real stuff, and way less messy. Click above to shop the rest of my picks.
