For this project I transformed an industrial space into a cozy space to welcome fall. My intention was to inspire and help readers transition their own spaces from summer into fall and winter.The inspiration and most prominent piece in the space is the beautiful vintage Turkish rug. From the 1960s it's hand knotted, vibrant and the perfect addition to the concrete floors. Area rugs and scatter rugs are an easy and inexpensive way to change up decor with the seasons. In a large space like this the rug not only defines the space, but also helps to absorb sound and reduce echoing.Since I wanted the rug to be the star, I kept the rest of the furnishings neutral, choosing to play with texture over color to create interest. An oversized knitted throw, fringed pillows, and a knotted pouf keep the space from feeling boring, while creating a warm and inviting space.Gorgeous caramel leather chairs offer contrast to the sofa, but blend in beautifully with the brick, keeping the space mellow. A sheep skin rug and cozy pillow help to soften the chairs and play well with the other textures in the space.Natural elements like the raw wood nesting tables and warm tones like the bass accents help to warm up the space even more. Vintage art, books and candles complete the transformation.
