Fall Fashion Trends: A Chat with Elaine Turner!

Fall is here! My favorite season has finally arrived, and I could not be more excited. Every year, I eagerly await the changing of leaves, cool fronts, cozy interiors (my house is already decked out in gourd décor!) and new styles. While I love cute booties and comfy cashmere, I am certainly no expert in the fashion department, and I typically let my fall style come out in my interior designs, rather than my wardrobe.

Luckily, I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Houston’s own “handbag queen,” Elaine Turner, about fall fashion trends, and she was kind enough to give me the scoop on what’s hot this season. We had a fabulous time swapping knowledge over a glass (or two) of wine at Beckrew Wine House, and I learned so much about fall styles, Elaine’s (impressive) entrepreneurial journey and just how much we have in common (Elaine is also a mother of two and runs her company with her husband, Jim)! Sound familiar?

Needless to say, I am very excited to share all of the fashion-forward insight I learned during our happy hour. Read on for all of the details about Elaine’s amazing new fall collection, her take on white after Labor Day, and some inspirational advice from a lady who knows a thing or two about turning dreams into reality!

Stylish Surfaces

Fabulous interior design does not happen overnight. From space planning and furniture procurement to selecting fixtures and finishes, the interior design process is an artful blending of many different aspects that come together in the end to create a fabulously unique design. While every aspect of the design is important to the overall aesthetic, it always comes down to the last details to really bring a room together.

It’s for this reason, that I take great care to add the perfect finishing touches to my classically current designs, and tabletops and other surfaces make the perfect opportunities to get creative with even the smallest details!

Plush Blush

It’s hard to believe that we are already a week into May, but before we make the official transition from spring to summer, I want to give recognition to a gorgeous springtime hue that has gained popularity in the interior design world recently and continues to make its way into my classically current designs. That’s right, I’m talking about blush.

I personally love to pair this soft, pale pink shade with gold or grey accents to bring an elegant, feminine touch to the interior design of a space. Whether in the form of pillows, furniture pieces and everything in between, including this subtle hue into a room’s design can have a big impact on the space and may just be the perfect addition to complete your look! Here are some examples of how I’ve blended blush into my interiors, and additional pieces I can’t wait to incorporate in my future classically current designs.
