Happy Hour

Give analog a chance with the monochromatic Kvell Pop Clock ($30 on kvellhome.com). The color is a subtle reminder that it’s always wine o’clock somewhere.

Mix It Up

More Old World than retro? Instead of classic red, go Bordeaux with the KitchenAid Artisan Series 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer ($500 on kitchenaid.com). It looks striking against white subway tiles.

Power Couple

For the hostess with the mostess, a bottle of wine is never a bad decision. Add a matching Rabbit Pinch Foil Cutter & Bottle Stopper ($10 on rabbitwine.com) and you’ve officially outdone yourself.

Better With Age

The CB2 Ansel Wrap Purple Vase ($30 on cb2.com) looks like old leather, but it’s actually stoneware and water-safe. Use it solo, or fill it with eucalyptus for a fragrant centerpiece that won’t overpower dinner.

Pour a Little Out

Behr’s Dark Crimson (M140-7) (from $22 per gallon on homedepot.com)  paint makes a bold statement on walls. But just imagine how it would shine on molding, a fireplace surround, or a piece of vintage furniture. 

Velvet Crush

This Geometric Merlot Velvet Pillow ($35 at HomeGoods) packs three hot trends—vino-colored velvet, herringbone, and chevron—into one cozy-chic piece for your couch.

Carried Away

Hands-free bags are where it’s at. With a quilted front pocket, gold zippers, and faux leather finish, the Apt. 9 Backpack ($35 on kohls.com)  has a back-to-school vibe but won’t make you feel like the new kid.

Sweet Soles

Yes, those are three-inch heels. But pull on Børn MEGGS ($140 on Amazon) and these knit booties with a generously padded footbed will have you thinking you’re wearing slipper socks.

Investment Piece

No one does warm like the Canadians. So we’re betting the Brooklyn Superlight Vest by Lolë ($210 on lolelife.com)—based in Montreal—will be your fall fave. It offers down-warmth without the bulk.

Smart Mouth

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Chianti ($22 on stilacosmetics.com), inspired by the classic dry Italian red, will stay put through a couple of glasses of it.

Bold and Beautiful
