I created a slideshow for a retail website’s blog featuring links to 10 new products, placed into relatively evergreen content. This balanced the marketing director’s priority of sales conversion with the marketing content manager’s priority to position the company as an authority on design and a modern design community gathering place.
5 Ideas for Modern Fall Décor
Fall’s chilly charm calls for décor that layers up natural and cozy elements inside. AlwaysMod can help you create modern fall décor that will transition throughout the year. Browse the slideshow, then read on for more details on how to get easy, beautiful moments in modern style around your home.
Bring in Branches
Long, spindly branches bring fall’s signature indoors. Group vases of different hues and sizes and let them feature a thin branch from your own yard, eucalyptus bunches, or a cut from a chockeberry shrub. Iittala’s Ruutu vases work particularly well for a layered effect, and the Middle Kingdom Bisque Cold Mountain Magnolia vase has a narrow mouth perfect for branches.
The rust-colored leaves and golden sunlight of fall call for warm-hued metallics. The Tom Dixon Base Copper Table Lamp can be the base for a touch of fall on a desk or side table. Bring the glory of the outdoors in without the mess, and in a modern metallic hue, when you set the dining table with the Chilewich Honey Leaf Placemats.
Nestle a Bird
Some birds may fly south to avoid the chill, but others become icons of fall and its longer nights and scarecrow perching. Create a cozy spot for the Vitra Eames House Bird or the Iittala Toikka Barn Owl on your mantle, bookshelf, wall shelf, or even as part of a dining table centerpiece.
There’s no better way to add to the relaxed ambiance of a rainy fall day than with a glowing flame in your warm home. The Stelton Copper Oil Lamp is sophisticated and refillable, so it will add beauty and glow for years to come. Add to a full sensory experience with the Jonathan Adler Fig Candle, a seasonal scent to set the mood for indulgence. Every room of the house feels ready for fall with a cluster of candles.
The key to a visually interesting fall display is in layers. Fill platters, pedestals and trays of varying heights with decor that looks good enough to eat, such as artichokes, kale, squash, pomegranates and cranberries. The Tina Frey collection has platters and pedestals that layer well together and with other pieces. The clean lines and rotating upper plate make the Vitra Rotary Trays (available in 5 colors) easy to integrate in any display.
Modern fall décor flows in the home, creating a feeling of thoughtful warmth and intentional living. Find just the right touches at AlwaysMod for modern fall décor that can be transitioned throughout the year.
