My friend – the fabulous interior designer – Kimberlee Jaynes (kimberleejaynes.com) just did an excellent write-up on fall trends. She points to bright + bold shapes and folkloric inspirations on the horizon along with my favorite: BIG florals. Here are some fun fall finds currently available in PDX and/or online!
Botanical Flower Wall Mural from Manolo Walls
Tropical Leaf and Floral Decorative Pillow Cover in Braemore’s Banana Grove Fabric
Green Velvet Mor Suite Sofa at City Home
Kimberlee recommends flavorpaper.com for wallpaper. Check out this lush “Feroz” (!!!)
And finally … a secret DIY tip! Have you ever been disappointed by a museum gift shop for not having a print of that stunning piece you just saw in person? And then you looked everywhere and it’s not online either? Life hack alert! Find the image online – the larger the file, the better. Then upload it to a poster on Vistaprint! (Vistaprint ALWAYS has promo codes floating around too.) Place order. Find a funky frame. Voila!
(Obviously: Always buy the art when you can … especially from the living artists … but I don’t think it’ll hurt the feelings of those who’ve been 6 feet under for 175 years!)
Have you spotted any big fall florals in PDX? If so, send me a pic! Thanks, Kimberlee!
