Back in the Saddle: My Favorite Fall Color

As I was working on my “In the Mood” post for September last week, I started to notice a common thread. Many of the images I had selected included saddle leather elements, whether it was upholstery or fashion accessories. I ended up feeling inspired by the Fairchild house in the Hamptons and used that as my inspiration for this month’s mood instead, feeling I should write a post dedicated to my love of rich, caramel leather. It is the perfect element for adding a warm, masculine touch to a room and in regard to fashion, it is difficult to find anything that acts as such a perfect neutral that goes with everything. Saddle leather is classic and cool in the most effortless way. I’ve gathered some images that are currently inspiring me along with some saddle-inspired items for your home and wardrobe. You’ll find that some are actually suede, but I find it to be just as timeless.
