As fall sets in and the days begin to shorten, I find myself embracing duskier palettes. Monochromatic rooms and rich colors and textures just seem to set the mood for the cold months ahead. Here’s a collection of artwork, fashion, and furnishings that appeal to that aesthetic. The paints featured below are all by Benjamin Moore.

The sixteenth annual Cashiers Designer Show House kicks off this weekend, and I wanted to share a few favorite details from my bed and bath.
I selected natural fibers, rich leathers, and organic forms for this house situated high in the mountains of North Carolina, but I avoided the antlers and twigs that have become so ubiquitous and cliché in mountain homes. I think we created a beautiful blend of rustic and refined and included a lot of really special pieces.
Many thanks to all of the galleries and vendors who helped make this possible. We hope you will visit and be inspired by this tranquil mountain retreat.
