Fall 2015

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

Hello my friends, I've had a long break, but  I'm back! It was not my intention to be away for the whole summer but health issues have slowed me down. Enough about that for now. Lets get on with my mini fall tour.

I love whites and neutrals but this year I wanted to add a little color. Although my palette is still pretty neutral its not all white. I added gray, taupe and pops of copper and turquoise vases. The pretty pillow in my wing chair is a design by the amazing talent Lucy of Craftberrybush.

In addition to my pops of color I also added three cozy throws.Two soft plaids and my fur throw that I purchased last Christmas from Pier One.

I added pumpkins antlers greenery and feathers to a white platter for my coffee table.

Coverless books and a turquoise vase with burlap leaves and berries were also added.

A copper bowl filled with yarn is a nod to sweatah wetha!

The wood burner is wearing three pretty velvet pumpkins the smaller ones are from etsy and the larger one is from Marshals.

The side table is wearing a planter that I painted and added an image transfer too a while ago. To the planter I added dried hydrangeas from my garden, a pretty gray velvet pumpkin, feathers and a cute mini pillow purchased from Targets 3 dollar spot. The turquoise vases were bought from Marshals and are a carry over from my summer decor. I just added some fall berries and white Chinese lantern stems.

I put a grain sack look runner on the dining room table and added two pillar candlesticks that started out life as white gazing ball stands. I bought them on clearance for about 2.50 each a few years ago and recently painted them in a charcoal gray craft store chalk paint with a white wash over that.

Pumpkins dried and silk hydrangeas feathers and soft lambs ear were all added to a tray for a quick centerpiece. When I worked as a floral designer my favorite arrangements were the ones that combined fruit,  vegetables and flowers, still one of my favorite combos.

Bijoux decided to join the tour he reminded me to tell you that the plaid throws were purchased from Marshalls and the floral pillows  were purchased from H&M. Thanks for taking my mini tour with me. I'll be joining these great parties this week.
