Fall is my favorite for everything… the home cooked meals, the crisp air, pumpkins, getting cozy, the gardening, the clear evening light, and of course, the decorating! I love fall’s inspiring colors and textures. This year, my fall decor change over may come a little later than usual. In mid October I will be receiving an oriental rug from my grandmother with rich reds and blues… at least that is what my mom and I think the pallet is. Neither of us can specifically remember what it looks like, and it has been in storage for quite a long time. Whatever it is, I am ready to trade in the pool blue and apricot orange combo I’ve had for six years, for deeper and more cozy colors.
Once it’s here, I fully anticipate making new pillow covers and possibly a slipcover for the ottoman. In the meantime though, to get myself going, I planted some vibrant fall annuals in my front garden bed. Nothing fancy, but the result is very welcoming and cheery. What was once a dry and dreary bed of dirt is now a nice little sampling of fall that I can enjoy from inside the house as well!
