PIPING AND PLAID!

When in NY a few weeks ago, my very fashionable friend Amie Robinson mentioned that she had gone to the showroom of a cool new designer - she was raving about this designer's clothes and showroom. Amie has great fashion instincts so when I got home, I immediately popped onto my computer and had to look up clothing designer Lauren Moffatt. Amie was of course right...Lauren's fall collection is indeed awesome.

In particular, I love Lauren's outerwear which includes a cool plaid bomber jacket and 2 great navy capes with colorful trim. These coats inspired today's post...piping and plaid in fashion and in home decor and furnishings too!

Had a small group over my house this weekend...even though it was just wine and cheese, I had to have the plaid plates for my table. I bought 12! They are a good price too and great for outdoor or indoor entertaining.

Thanks Amie for turning me onto Lauren...I think I must have the bomber jacket for fall!

Readers, anything here strike your fancy? Or any other trend you like for fall in home decor or fashion?

Hope you have a great Monday!

  6. Love this post. It is so "fall fresh". The Lauren Moffatt bomber jacket is so classy AND hip. I also can't get enough of the crispness and beauty of black furniture with white/ivory piping.

  7. My mother bought a sofa in the late 70's that's a dead ringer for the Brookside sofa from WSH. She said it was a fortune at the time, but she had to have it along with 2 chairs in the same style. 30 years later, that furniture has been re-upholstered in everything from brown velvet to some kind of nubby tweedy thing to the current fabric... a solid white. It's striking, simple, timeless. And I ask my mother all the time "When are you going to give me those?"
