When faced when the endless possibilities of dressing our interiors, we like to consult the pros. We reached out to some local home and interiors experts to tell us what they are loving right now. Some of them offered suggestions from their own stores, and others pointed us in another direction — and all of their FINDS are fabulous! From keepsakes and a chandelier to vintage frames and a laundry station, we are visualizing all of the ways we can incorporate these specially selected finds into our homes and quickly realizing why these owners love them.

Vintage Rug

Expert: Nicholas Sumner, Nashville Rug Gallery

Why he loves it: “This Vintage Herreke 2×3 is from the Kurdish area of Eastern Turkey. The grays are wonderful and just the right amount of pumpkin. Much like a wonderful pumpkin spice latte!” Price: $115

Throw

Expert: Marcelle Guilbeau, Marcelle Guilbeau Interior Design

Why she loves it: “This time of year, with the weather getting cooler, is all about bringing out the layers: pillows and throws — extra layers to snuggle up in. I am seeing the mixing of everything from linens and plaids to sheepskins and velvets. I am really loving the soft layers from Amity Home — very refined and delicate.” Price: $88

Keepsake Box

Expert: Jonathan Pierce, Pierce & Company

Why he loves it: “When giving a box, it’s tradition to give something in it — either a great note or something of substance. I find these are the greatest gifts because they are the things you remember. My mother did it for me, and I found an old little box she’d given me. I didn’t realize she’d written me a card, and 10 years after her passing, it meant even more. There’s something about a note in a box to remind you what forever really is.” Price: $550

Wood Chest

Expert: Kristi Coomes-Boyens, Home Inspired Nashville

Why she loves it: “I like the contrast of the natural wood top and bright white base. It’s also a piece that can be used in multiple places. We see it in a dining room or used as a media console!” Price: $2,195

Vintage Chair

Expert: Sara Ray, Sara Ray Interior Design

Why she loves it: “We recently acquired four of these beautiful vintage mid-century modern brass and upholstered chairs. They could easily work as breakfast chairs, formal dining chairs or accent chairs. With their clean and classic design, they would intermingle well with modern or traditional furnishings.” Price: $300 each

Leopard Pillow

Expert: Amy Montgomery, The Collected Nest

Why she loves it: “Iconic leopard print fabric pre-dates Jackie Kennedy’s much-photographed leopard skin coat. ‘Simba’ is a great choice for fall and winter in a chic, updated cut velvet navy on linen. There are endless possibilities with a beautiful pillow!” Price: $74

Vintage Cut-Crystal Chandelier

Expert: Lauren Bugg, GasLamp Antiques & GasLamp Too

Why she loves it: “This gorgeous chandelier is a new arrival. I’ve seen a lot of chandeliers in my time, but I’ve never seen anything like this one. It is over 100 years old; it would have looked wonderful in my former house on Belmont. Imagine it hanging from a 14-foot ceiling! Purely stunning.” Price: $1,495

Mid-Century Artwork

Expert: Roger Higgins, R. Higgins Interiors

Why he loves it: “Small pieces of contemporary artwork add youthful zip to an otherwise traditional home setting or pair easily with an existing contemporary art collection. We love using framed pieces like shown, scattered throughout the home, whether it be in a large grouping down a hallway, on bookshelves or in small vignettes.” Price: $800-$1,000

Mahogany Desk

Expert: Michael Dukes, Royal Circus

Why he loves it: “We love this new mahogany desk because it so perfectly embodies the ethos behind Royal Circus. It’s beautiful, timeless and substantial — also flexible enough to work in lots of different settings. It is the kind of piece that brightens your day when you walk into the room. Even better, the mahogany is sustainably plantation-harvested, with a water-based finish that’s healthier for both the craftsmen and our planet.” Price: $504

Console

Expert: Ashley Meier, Ashley Meier Linens | Interiors

Why she loves it: “Burl wood is so hot right now, but it’s also timeless, and it’s easy to see why. The patterns and swirls in burl wood are actually the results of an imperfection in nature … some sort of stress or mutation causes the wood to form in this way. As such, it is rare and even a bit difficult to work with but brings a tremendous depth and layer of detail that warms up any space it occupies. I’m obsessed with burl wood pieces because they are a perfect way to bring nature indoors, and the patterns are just gorgeous!” Price: $1,835

Simmered Cider Candle

Expert: Chelsea-Skye Netter, Sanctuary South

Why she loves it: “This candle is my absolute favorite for fall! It fills your whole space with the comforting scent of hot apple cider with a hint of cinnamon. The gorgeous copper vessel is a perfect decorative accent long after the candle is used!” Price: $50

Expert: Susan Dyke, Epergne
