10 Must-have fall home accessories
4. Mercury glass
The prettiest way to add shine to a room this season is with mercury glass accessories from lamps to vases. Perk up a bedroom dresser or kitchen cabinet with these mercury glass knobs, $8 each at Anthropologie and anthropologie.com.
5. Cake stand
You’ll need a proper place to display apple tarts, oatmeal cookies, pumpkin scones, and other goodies that come out of your kitchen. This ceramic cake stand, handmade by Atlanta-based artist Jeanette Zeis, is one of the prettiest pedestals we’ve come across. Find it for $120 at vesselsandwares.etsy.com.
6. Statement mirror
An eye-catching mirror is an easy way to add interest to a room. Look for frames with texture and vintage styling, like this sunburst mirror by designer Suzanne Kasler, $149 at Ballard Designs and ballarddesigns.com. With a mirror like this, rest it on your mantle, let it hang alone on a wall, or group it with other mirrors and wall art for an eclectic feel.
7. Collection on display
What do you collect? Vintage trophies? Old clocks? Suitcases? Whatever your lot, edit it down and put a tidy collection on display; anything with a story behind it is a must for fall. Feeling uninspired? Fortunately there are tastemakers out there collecting things for us. To get the look, hang these framed vintage European medals, $150 each at Jayson Home & Garden and jaysonhomeandgarden.com.
8. Sweater pillows
That cozy, comfy feeling you get when you throw on your favorite sweater has been reincarnated for your couch this fall. Use a few of these chunky-knit pillow covers, $39 at Pottery Barn and potterybarn.com, to give your family room a homey yet stylish feeling.
These are the magical weeks when our doors and windows are open to let in fall breezes. Celebrate with a fun doorstop, like this large iron jack, $15 at C.S. Post & Co. and cspost.com.
10. Task lamps
You’ll love the smart and polished vibe a room takes on with the addition of one or two task lamps. They’re a match for almost any décor, to boot. For a dapper option that’s priced just right, try this tabletop task lamp, $59 at West Elm and westelm.com.
