A curated mood board of exactly where our editors are finding inspiration right now.
The first day of each month always feels like a new beginning, a bit of reset from the month before and a chance to look ahead to what we love most about each season. Whether it's finally tackling a redecorating project, pulling out beloved wardrobe staples that have been packed away, or creating a seasonal floral arrangement with nature's bounty, we hope you find meaningful ways to enjoy the best and most beautiful of what September has to offer.
For inspiration, our editors are looking to a regal lit à colonnes bed from the Ditchley House in Oxfordshire, England, where Prime Minister Winston Churchill resided for several years during World War II. A portrait of Lee Radziwill in 1962 that feels as timeless today as it did then and an oh-so-chic snap of bon vivant Doris Duke landing at New York's La Guardia airport from Buenos Aires have us contemplating fall ensembles that are classic with an elevated twist. The Paris home of the Schlumberger family (shot for Vogue in 1974) lends some color sensibility thanks to its deep burgundy walls—hung with Braque and Picasso paintings—that practically beg for candlelight bouncing during a long and drawn-out dinner party, while decorator Ches Rayner is dressed the part for just that sort of sophisticated soirée.
