As far as the Fall color palette goes, the generally accepted hues range from burnt orange to a chocolate brown and a deep merlot in between. For Fall 2011 designers broke from the collegiate chic rhythm and amped up their designs with plums, reds and electric accents. Tom Ford, who has closely guarded his new womenswear collection gave the public a taste with the debut of his fall ad campaign.
Interestingly enough, Tom Ford’s former house Gucci made a similar color splash and an oddly similarly styled campaign.
Whether you are a fan of Ford or think the campaign similarities are just that, it’s undeniable the cool, chic and sleek feel both campaigns evoke.
CFDA President Diane von Furstenburg offers a similar style with a contemporary price-point that keeps you looking 70’s chic in your everyday look. The Studio ’54 look is very au currant and what’s good for your closet is also good for your home.
Since DVF is the mother of fashion and has built her name making colorful and funky patterned clothing, it stands to reason that her daughter would inherit that eye and make impossibly chic and beyond fun furniture. Alexandra von Furstenburg debuted a small line of 70’s chic furnishings, this XO lucite end table among them. Available at The Well Appointed House in an array of electric colors, this is by far one of my favorite pieces and a conversation piece that won’t get boring. Add some more of the color palette to your home with these bright accents.
This Mod Bar Cart in Orange not only adds a nice pop to your decor, it is also functional. Add another pop of our favorite fall hues with this red side table.
The deep red is on trend and the arch of the piece adds interest making this not just another accent piece but a contributing factor to a room’s decor. One of my favorite colors and one that is constantly popping up this season is this plum Dransfield & Ross pillow.
Not only is the color on trend but the plum feathers are very much apart of the 70’s trend, which we love so much. – Gabby Katz
