Vincent Van Gogh painted The Mulberry Tree in October, 1889 less than a year before he died. He was at an asylum in St. Remy, recovering from his fight with Paul Gauguin and the famous ear incident. He painted everything around him; the doctors, the halls, the wheat fields and the garden. It was a beautiful autumn that year and he told his brother Theo that this painting was his favorite. Despite everything he was going through, The Mulberry Tree expresses Van Gogh’s interest in expressionism, his mastery of color theory, his understanding of the modern direction of painting and how he was attempting to go with it. In my mind, the painting goes deeper than the color of the leaves and has to do with change, grief, rebirth and mastery.

Inspired by Van Gogh’s Mulberry Tree, here are a few enticing things I thought you might enjoy…

Details:

18k Butterfly Yellow Quartz earrings by Mary Jo Matsumoto…our Magical Mind earring collection is finally available online!

If there was ever a watch meant for the autumn season, it would be the Jord wood watch. I love the Ely in cherry, with it’s simple but lovely design.

Our Thalia Shopper is still my favorite go-to Fall bag. More styles available on MaryJoMatsumoto.com.

Lieber Gustav 14 by Krigler was F. Scott Fitzgerald’s favorite scent and has beautiful rich and woody notes of black tea and lavender perfect for fall. I love it so much that Mr. TrustYourStyle received a bottle, but I’m tempted to steal it back for myself.

Clothes: Haider Ackermann shirt, Splendid track pants, Givenchy sandals.
