Going for Gold

When it comes to accessories, I am definitely gravitating towards gold this fall. I haven't been using gold and brass lately but now that the season has changed, I cannot stop going gaga over these gold goodies. A lot of clients worry about mixing silver and nickel with gold, but I say rules are meant to be broken.  I like to mix up the metallics the same way I do with jewelry. If you are a bit worried, try adding one or two gold accessories in with mercury glass so that it blends more easily. I am wishing the gold beauties below were in my home :).

Swatch Watch: Fall Fabrics with F. Schumacher

Most of the F. Schumacher buzz lately is all about Martyn Lawrence Bullard's new fabric collection but I was in the mood for more cinnamon and cranberry hued favorites from the F.

Below are some of my favorites from the Chroma line. More colorways are available so check out the full collection in the link below.
