I love the look of fall—the pumpkins and the fallen leaves, sure, but also the particular quality the light takes on when the sun sinks low in the sky. It's a sad, melancholy quality, but also moody and dramatic and interesting, and in some way these living rooms just seem made for that kind of light—a place to sip tea and curl up with an obscure tome and mull over the ashes of the year.

Above: I imagine that this living room from Elle Decor is the sort of space that would belong to the kind of person I wish to be when I'm 65: well-traveled, wise, a bit mysterious, and very comfortable in their own eccentricity.

This living room from Milk Magazine is warm, inviting and a bit mysterious. The light from the window falls tenderly over the space, as if it adores everything in it as much as I do.

Paired with light gray walls, the dark ceiling in this space from Gravity Home comes off moody and not gloomy. It's a bit Scandinavian-modern-meets-Addams Family, and I love it.

The folks at Italy's Dimore Studio, who created this interior spotted in T Magazine, are brilliant at creating spaces that are simultaneously light and moody. The shapes are delicate and modern, but the colors are very rich.

This space from JJ Locations proves once again that you can go moody without going dark...and that a mix of modern and antique pieces is the best way to create a timeless look.

Dark colors only add to the warm embrace of this comfortably cluttered living room from Lonny.

Because we often closely associate white with sparse, museum-like spaces, it's easy to group black together with interiors that are a bit more crowded. But as this space from Andrea Ferrari proves, minimal black spaces can be an excellent idea as well.

There's so much going on, color-wise, in this space (spotted on The Eye Spy Milk Bar) that it's almost too much for my poor heart to take in. Paired with brown and black, emerald green and deep teal shine brilliantly. Also, I really love that little marble table.
