2013 Fall Trend – Houndstooth

< inspo home

Like it or not Fall is right around the corner.  It’s almost time to bring out your wooly scarves, sweaters and boots.  Once again fashion has influenced home décor in so many ways.  One of my favourite trends is definitely houndstooth.

houndstooth in fashion

Houndstooth, also known as dogstooth, is one of the biggest international trends for Fall 2013. This duo-tone patterned garment originated somewhere in the 1800s in Scotland, but soon travelled across the world and became a huge trend for the elite and aristocrats. Houndstooth is a great investment as it keeps making a comeback in fashion.

We have created new collections of wool throws; and of course these include houndstooth.  I love teaming these warm greys with a pop of red.  Shane has created some very nice art to enhance these collections.

And here’s an example of houndstooth in home décor with pops of green.

    Would love to know where to buy that coat the model is wearing?

  3. I dodged a forklift, piles of soil and a Zipcar backing into place but the activity did not interfere with my sense of enchantment. The garden displays this year are rich – in color, design and size. Beautiful flowers and trees are nestled along stone walls, patio spaces and above moon gates. The sound of water is everwhere – in falls, pools, fountains and spouts. There are parrots, hens, a rooster and a pair of sleek grey birds that look like small emus. And there are plenty of hidden flower delights if you look keenly, like fairy houses near Hobbit holes and gentle beds of helleborus. There are a several small displays. The window gardens in the back of the main hall are delightful as is the Massachusetts Horticultural’s old-time flower display, complete with wash board and clothes on a line. Overall, every display is evokes a smile and a deep inhale. The Show’s first display as you enter the hall shows garden entertainment at its finest. It’s a lush, multi-section outdoor patio with a man-sized BBQ grill and stone bar with table seating for four and more at the bar. It took me a minute to take in and appreciate the surrounding garden but there’s no denying I’d love to have this look in my back yard (if I had one). The BBQ space flows to a raised covered patio section with comfy chairs, a fireplace and two waterfall chutes splashing into a pool. The chutes really got my attention. Overall, the display and its beautiful and lavish flowers and trees set the mood for a perfect summer evening.
