After two years penning Slice’s Setting the Table column, I’m escaping from the dining room and bringing readers some of my favorite finds for the whole home. To kick off my new feature, I’m jumping in with textures. Fall is in full swing and winter is on its way, so everyone can do with a little layering. Cable knit, velvet, antique wood and galvanized metal are among my favorites this November. With brown and gray dominating the color scheme of my choices, a dash of real color is the key to adding punch. Purple, in all forms, is what I’m leaning toward this fall. Whether it’s a velvet pillow in framboise or a new painting with just a hint of lilac, I think purple complements any base color.
Here’s a collection of what’s inspiring me to warm up my home for winter.
