Splurge or save: Cozy home accessories for a designer-approved autumn refresh

RECOMMENDED READING


Summer is eternal in San Diego, much like Florida, but despite the year-round pleasant weather, interior designer Vanessa Matsalla still likes to decorate her home with cozy accessories for the fall.

"The autumn refresh is all about refinement using neutral tones and texture," says Matsalla, owner and principal designer ofStudio Matsalla Interiors.

She has highlighted products used in past projects to help welcome the season, including jute storage baskets — "a staple in our designs," she says. "They're functional, pretty to look at and stand the test of time."

Here are her top fall picks.
