Monthly Style Brief

Finally, fall is in the air! There’s something special about autumn that draws us together with family and friends. Transitioning from flip-flops to boots, tank tops to sweaters and backyard grilling to pumpkin pie … actually pumpkin-flavored everything! Family and friends gathering for food, football and fun make us want to create a warm and welcoming home.

Fall is the time when beautiful autumn colors found in nature can find their way into our home. Burgundy leaves, russet pumpkins, Red Delicious apples, golden crispy crust combine to make a beautiful palette. You might pull out a favorite cake stand and fill it with pumpkins or gourds. Lay an autumnal garland down your dining table curving around some mercury glass jars and candles. Adding sunflowers, feathers, pods or seasonal berries is a great way to add a touch of your personality. Pull out a tray and mound some velvety, jewel-toned pumpkins handcrafted locally for The French Quarter.

Here at The French Quarter, we are grateful to have our business in a wonderful community like Bakersfield. We look forward to meeting you and helping you create your own autumn comfort!
