It’s no secret that we have a long-standing obsession with Southern California design. The cities that dot the West Coast manage to marry glam and rustic details with ease, something we’re all too keen on replicating. Think: old-world Hollywood meets nouveau modern as seen in Kelly Wearstler’s newly designed Proper Hotels (those headboards!) and some of the breathtaking homes we got a glimpse of on Domino.com (that dining room!). 

This fall, in lieu of the traditional all-velvet everything, we’re taking a fresh approach to bringing the finest of the season home by channeling the best of the West. Looking to those SoCal hot spots for inspiration, we found seven pieces for an autumn aesthetic that’s the perfect mix of laid-back and luxurious. 

For the Foot of the Bed

Fall and sheepskins go hand in hand, and this slightly tinted faux option promises to bring all the cozy you can handle. 

For the Console in the Entryway

Configure this gold-trimmed iron set as a trio or spread the trays around the house for maximum coverage. 

For the Eat-in Kitchen

Surround this farmhouse-chic rubberwood table with a set of clean-lined, upholstered chairs—preferably in a darker color—for a high-contrast twist on the expected.

For the Empty Corner

File this under sleek sources of ambient lighting with a silhouette just as eye-catching as its brushed brass finish. 

For the Living Room

In glass and powder-coated metal, this understated coffee table skews ever-so-slightly modern. For the accessory enthusiast, it is the ultimate blank canvas.

For the Sofa

Take a break from the rich jewel tones of the season and embrace a hue on the cooler side. This chambray-esque throw pillow will do. 

For the Side Table

Don’t let the earthy details of this mango-wood vase fool you. Prop it up solo on a metallic or lacquered surface and it will feel totally elevated.
