Summer, we hardly knew ya. Wasn't it just mere weeks ago that we were lounging lakeside? But no fear: back at Hunker House, we've been gearing up for fall — and we couldn't be more excited for the season of layers, lazy evenings, and glowing celebrations. Just the other day, we threw this rustic luxe vignette together with some of Walmart's prettiest pieces, and we think it's the perfect transition to crisper temps and autumnal festivities.
We decked out the gold console and rustic-chic bench with rich materials and textures — gold-rimmed glassware, marble accents, and shimmery bar accessories — to create this cozy-yet-refined look. The bench is a perfect multifunctional piece, whether stowed under the table, parked at the foot of a bed, or pulled out for extra seating — plus, it's got ample storage for blankets or other cool-weather accessories.
The juxtaposition of nature-inspired textures and subtle metallics creates a sense of depth, warmth, and luxury. We love the way these Drew Barrymore Flower Home baskets pick up the gold flecks in the rug while the super-soft MoDRN faux-fur blanket adds a layer of cozy luxury.
Does anything capture the hues and celebratory vibes of the autumn months better than copper? The earthy sophistication of these cocktail accessories turns any surface into a chic bar. We styled the metallics with rich, purply reds and greens to add depth and contrast — who's up for a nightcap?
