Autumn Around the House

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

October is here so I felt it was time to switch things up around the house and transition for the season. I follow nature’s lead when decorating around the house, in autumn it’s a show of golden color so I take my cue from those warmer tones. I crave bold bursts of color in spring and summer but fall has me settling into cooler days and darker evenings with textured earthy neutrals.

I’m predictable in my approach: branches, leaf cuttings, touches of gold, scattered white pumpkins. I reuse favorite accessories or art prints because they make me happy.

Perfect Country Days

Monday, October 17th, 2011

The in-laws came for a visit this past weekend. My MIL brought her homemade lasagna which was the beginning for me. The beginning of a two day relaxation coma which I just awoke from this very morning. 

The thing I love the most about having out of town visitors is how they force me to get out of my paint splattered yoga pants and head out into the nearby countryside to adventure and explore. Our visitors couldn’t have come at a better time, October in this region is simply divine.
