Allow me to introduce you to the image that got the seasonal home decorating ideas flowing a couple of weeks ago. The dark wood of the bar stool legs, the predominant natural wood beams, the neutral color palette, and the ironstone vegetable dish in the cupboard collectively turned my thoughts to fall.
Thoughts of fall reminded me it was time to begin putting together ideas for a fall tablescape. The barley twist bar stools reminded me of a pair of vintage barley twist candlesticks I know I have somewhere. The quest to locate the barley twist candlesticks turned up empty however, it lead me to the Wedgwood candlesticks that worked out better in the long run. Isn’t it funny how an image or an item in that image can initiate the decorative snowball effect?
Textures, finishes, and color palettes evoke thoughts of warmth, coziness, and hominess- qualities so closely associated with cold weather days and nights. Seasonal home decorating ideas often are inspired by the senses.
The versatility and style is year-round, but there’s just something about a basket that is woven into the fabric of fall and winter.
Forget the pie, this is my idea of a slice of pumpkin love!
Pumpkin, ginger, and cinnamon- from kitchen to table to home decor accessories to color palettes.
In a few months from now I’ll be writing about how I can’t wait for spring flowers to bloom, summer colors, and there’s nothing better than the taste of barbecue. For now, I’m looking forward to the first really cool night and the feel of a down comforter. Also on the fall treats list is the delicious scent of cloves and oranges throughout the kitchen and dining room, and the highly anticipated first taste of a pumpkin spice latte.
Okay, now it’s your turn. What is it that you hear, see, feel, smell or taste that reminds you of fall?
