Plaids, checks and houndstooth patterns are always fall favorites but this year they are bolder, more colorful, more playful or more sophisticated than ever.

Chanel’s classic tweed skirt-suits got a modern update with blown-up check and houndstooth. York’s JACKIE OH! – RB4265

Take houndstooth for example; Chanel has an extra large motif toned to chicly subtle with graphite gray.  Check out York’s variety with Jackie Oh! for a little funk, or Ron Redding’s Houndstooth for a renewed classic.

York’s TYLER – ML1232                                                                 ML1233

And plaids!  Layer them together or pair them with soft and silky as Dior portrays them.  These colorful designs are not just for lodge looks anymore.

At Dior, mismatched plaids and silky separates made for an eclectic, pseudo-Victorian look.    York’s REGENT’S GLEN – ML1225

Classically beautiful, this plaid adds simple elegance to the room.

Tory Burch’s ultra-cozy plaid parka can be worn with a matching pair of plaid trousers.           York’s FILIGREE – LD7684

For a contemporary pop of color on a sophisticated check try Carey Lind’s new modern Filigree design from Jewel Box.  It’s an ultra chic combination of checks reminiscent
of Tory Burche’s plaid parka with a touch of Tangerine Tango – and to complete the runway look for your home drape a trendy faux fur over the nearest club chair!

Weave a little plaid into your décor; you’ll find yourself “checking into” that space
time and again!

Personality Plus

Somewhere around 4 months old, babies seem to sprout personality in a big way.  They giggle and smile at you and steal your heart!  Getting their space, the nursery, just right for these budding personalities is a fun adventure with oh so many lively choices to select from for décor.


Madison’s Hot Air Balloon, YS9193

Take Madison for example,
she believes the Avenue
was named after her.
(It’s always about her!)
Madison’s walls have eye
catching hot air balloons
in bold graphic patterns;
she can’t wait to shop for
her first polka dot dress on
her namesake Avenue.




Logan’s Trellis, pattern YS9103

Or Logan, who frankly is
happy to chill in his crib.
A white background is a
cleverly clean palette for
the very bold splash of
sophisticated yellow
lattice that really defines
his ambitions.





Lily’s Damask, YK0180

And lovely Lily, who knew
from the first step that she
was destined to surpass
the corps de ballet and go
directly to prima ballerina.
She can already do a
pirouette and once she
even remained standing!
Her wallpaper personality
is a soft yet sophisticated
damask, just tu-tu pretty.




Jaden’s graphic chain, YS9318

And last but not least,
there’s Jaden (there‘s one
in every crowd!).  Jaden’s
room is “clothing optional”,
its jammies or nothing for
him.  What better style for
this distinct personality
than a hip graphic
interlocking chain pattern;
after all, its the walls that
really make a fashion
statement, not the clothes!



And wouldn’t it be nice if the base of the décor, the wallpaper, was playful yet sophisticated enough to last into the tween years?  York’s Peek a Boo collection has you covered.  It’s the perfect blend of youthful color on surprisingly age appropriate yet sophisticated design that will have you saying “thank you York” when it’s time to change it up with a new bed ensemble and cool kid knick knacks.   Get inspired and enjoy, and may we add, live the youthful life vicariously!  CLICK TO VIEW VIDEO

Eye Candy Apple

Amidst the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple, it’s a huge treat to slow down to a stroll on 5th Avenue and do some window shopping!  I always feel inspired after gazing upon the hugely imaginative and fashion forward department store window displays.  My “must have” shopping list just got a little bigger!

Notice the gallery wall art at Bergdorf Goodman as they celebrate their
111th Anniversary and then check out how this translates to home décor on
York’s Pinterest Board “Gallery Walls”.


And oh! the shoes….
with royal plums and reds
(mixed together this year!)

Each color is striking on its
own, but combined moves
into fabulous – as shown
with York’s Mystic Vine wallpaper design by
Stacy Garcia

And the boots…
with the all-new
chevron craze!

Far from typical, today’s
chevron’s are loaded with
interest like this intricate
design that mixes bold lines
and soft meshed ovals for
a unique look that is the
height of fashionable walls.

And with all the very
chic latest geometrics…

as 5th Avenue!
