Autumn’s so close (we see you, September 22nd!) that we can practically taste the Pumpkin Spice Lattes… And you know what that means: Randolph Street Market’s final outdoor/indoor bonanza of 2016 is right around the corner—September 24th and 25th, to be exact! We’ll be celebrating the new season at our fall fashion and home preview, but beforehand we wanted to know: What trends are rocking the design world? We reached out to six oh-so-chic style experts to learn more about the pieces they’re coveting this season—and we’re taking notes:

 Michael Del Piero
“The bohemian vibe is very hot right now,” says Michael Del Piero, “though my suspicion is that elegant traditional is coming back strong.” This season, the perfectly polished interior designer is craving a color combo of dark teal and charcoal gray—in addition to textures galore (the more nubby and rough, the better). Don’t be surprised to find her poring over Randolph Street Market’s array of books, furs, ethnic vessels, and midcentury chairs. This entrepreneur’s strategy? Leave your list at the door, and let yourself be surprised. Says Del Piero, “I scan the Market for shape, size, and color, then zero in.”

 Suzanne Kopulos
For stylist Suzanne Kopulos (who just worked her magic on Giuliana Rancic), everything old is new again. “I love a hint of menswear, artistic pattern play that makes a statement, cold-shoulder tops and dresses that add a hint of romance, and top coats with massive style,” she says of some past season standouts that are making a major front-and-center comeback. Kopulos—who loves shopping local and finding one-of-a-kind pieces—suggests stripes and heavy textiles (think herringbone, tweed, and plaid), denim, leather, and fur for a fall-ready wardrobe. “And don’t forget the details: heavy stitching, embellishment, and my all-time favorite—hardware!”

 Jeannie Balsam
Move over, neutrals: color is back, and interior designer Jeannie Balsam is seeing lots of saturated hues in shades of green, blue, and terra-cotta, while “mohair and soft, cozy, textured fabrics have replaced simple linens and cottons that were so pervasive in ‘neutral-land.’” Always keeping her eyes peeled for vintage art, wall décor, and artifacts, Balsam frequents Randolph Street Market with her daughters—and gives them money to help them select something special while supporting the Market’s ever creative entrepreneurs. After all, says Balsam, “We all need to be patrons of the arts!”

 Lauren Buxbaum Gordon
“I am always a lover of creams, black, heather gray, rich browns, and a splash of deep dark green or mustard yellow,” says Nate Berkus Associates co-design director Lauren Buxbaum Gordon. As she decorates for fall, she’s taking a cue from wardrobe staples like cashmere, wool boucle, and leather. “I love that it can be a family event,” says the frequent Randolph Street Market visitor (who often arrives with her husband, daughter, and dog in tow), “and the food is fantastic!”

 D. Graham Kostic
I’m loving oversized chintz and granny florals,” says Glossed & Found creative director D. Graham Kostic, who notes that both are “equally good looking on catwalks and couches.” He’s currently crushing on anything and everything marbleized, not to mention emerald green. And what’s on his Randolph Street Market shopping list? “A huge cut crystal punch bowl. I scored the most beautiful set of crystal punch glasses—12 of them!—with dainty handles earlier this season at RSM. I obviously can’t have a holiday party with just punch glasses.” Cheers to that!

 Karen Herold
The design mastermind behind white-hot haunts like GT Prime, Monteverde, and Girl and the Goat, to name a few (Her latest project? Designing the highly-anticipated Nobu Hotel, of course!), Karen Herold anticipates a shift when it comes to décor. “We are going to start seeing more focus on materials as opposed to accessories,” says the Studio K Creative founder, who loves mixing natural woods and metals with her “go-to neutral,” indigo. Herold enjoys watching artisans at work while visiting Randolph Street Market, where more often than not, she’s on the hunt for furniture. Still, says Herold, “I am never quite sure exactly what I am looking for when I go, but I always seem to find the right thing!”
