Fashion Translation: Fall Harvest

I don’t know about you, but summer ended quite suddenly for those of us here in Seattle. I looked out my window the other day and saw crunchy leaves on the ground beneath a maple that had literally changed colors over night! There’s a snap in the air in the mornings and dew on my car. If there’s one color that makes me think of fall, it would be a rusty hue of orange. This harvest-inspired color can be found in all sorts of fashion essentials: a sherpa moto jacket, tweed trench, and corduroy pants. Not only do the silhouettes feel like they are borrowed straight from the closet of your mom in the ‘70s, but the colors do, too… and I simply love it! This is definitely my favorite fall trend by far.

Harvest orange is a simply fantastic color to include in your home, too — and not just for fall! I love this color for home decor year round. But in the interest of making your home extra cozy for the colder months, I suggest warming things up by introducing these harvest-inspired rugs. The patterns vary, but I’ve rounded up some of my favorites that can veer a little bit retro/’70s. I’ve been completely obsessed with this vibe lately and just couldn’t help myself!

Fall Color Inspiration: Pumpkin


Confession: I tend not to wear orange in my day-to-day wardrobe. Typically one of my least favorite colors, I have recently started to love a very autumnal twist on this color: pumpkin. This seasonal color speaks to me on so many levels, but I’m especially loving it for those just-shy-of head to toe looks, like a long sleeved maxi dress or cozy wool peacoat. Something to make a statement in the sea of black, brown, and navy that ushers in every autumn. One could even consider this toasted hue of orange to be a neutral, especially when paired with shades of deep dark blue and rich emerald.


Sometimes getting your home ready for fall is as simple as adjusting your color palette and making it veer toward one specific color… in this case, pumpkin. It’s sort of amazing how much warmth this shade of orange can lend to a space. For me, adding this color into my home is all about the accessories. For example, swap out your pillows for a pumpkin-hued geometric. Or drape a pumpkin colored throw on the arm of your sofa. Just that little pop of autumn-inspired color will make you feel cozier as you nest into your home for winter. I also love this deeper shade when it comes to rugs, especially rugs that boast a more bohemian, global vibe. These rugs that I selected remind me of spice bins at my local farmers market.
