DAY Birger et Mikkelsen Home

This is such a gorgeous autumn color palette! DAY Birger et Mikkelsen is a Danish label known for their amazing fashion but did you know that they also have a well-curated collection of goods for the home? Their current campaign is called Quirky Autumn and I just love it with the smokey shades of blue, gray.... vintage charm, extremely tactile, a few classic designs from the 60s, some ethnic "raw" pieces made of wood, silhouette art work, embroidery, lots of handmade charm -- we all are so drawn to these things because they feel so real and in some ways connect us back to our childhood...

This is definitely a look/palette that many designers are gravitating towards right now -- Sibella Court, TineK Home, House Doctor, DAY Birger et Mikkelsen, West Elm, Anthropologie, etc. The mix of high and low, old and new is currently popular but I believe that it has real staying power -- like denim jeans -- in the sense that you can see a living room in these colors, in this style, in 5 years and it would still be just as lovely and cozy and not at all appear dated or, "Sooooo 2010" as I imagine some current trends will look and feel years from now. Like denim, this look is clean, natural, casual and lasting since it is a mix of periods, cultures, and mostly neutral tones which you really can never go wrong with.

What do you think of these colors, textures and combinations?
