Happy Fall, Guys!
Well, not quite, I suppose, but a few more weeks and Fall will be official. The nights here in Massachusetts are getting cooler, the boughs of our apple trees are heavy under the weight of lots of growing apples, and here I am, writing my very first post of the season!
I’m not rushing summer.
I love summer – she can stay as long as she wants.
But there’s something hopeful about a new season waiting patiently, just over the horizon. The start of a few new things, the saying goodbye to some of the old.
I’ve been busily working on adding Fall touches around here the last few days – mainly at night, once the girls are in bed. Jenna’s really been into helping me decorate lately, so I let her come back down after the other ones fell asleep, and sip on tea and help out, a couple of times this weekend. I can’t believe how much she’s matured this year! I’m secretly hoping that one day she’ll want to be my design assistant, so I might as well start the training early, haha.
I’ll be sharing the changes inside the house with you all next week and I can’t wait for that.
But today, I’m super excited to be welcoming Autumn, outside, with lots of other amazing blogging friends! We’re all sharing pretty fall wreath ideas as part of Krista at The Happy Housie’s Seasonal Simplicity Series, and trust me, you guys, you will not be disappointed. The creativity and beauty is incredible!
Last year, my fall decor was pretty colorful, and I really loved it. I was feeling the plums/pinks in varying shades of intensity, and navy and green everything at the time, but this year I’m going in a bit of a different direction; which you’ll get to see come together next week!
My jumping off point for my fall decor this year is this pretty palette of peaches and purples! I know, not exactly a traditional palette for fall, but it’ll all make sense soon, I
promise hope. Ha!
Whenever I’m decorating seasonally, I like to decide on what colors feel best to me at the moment. Sometimes nothing but the accents change in a space, and at other times, I swap out pillow covers for a quick color refresh – and then I work in a few seasonal accents here and there.
And guess what? [Read more…]
