Even though the weather is still quite warm
here in SoCal
(as in it will probably hit near a 100 degrees this week)
I have begun my transition into fall decor.
I call it fall light.
Right now it is the simple introduction of some
natural shades of oranges
into my blue and white summer palette.
This is the first year I have decided to make small
in my seasonal change out
instead of taking it on all at once
it has been a much more joyful experience.
I am always so delighted
with the simple change of accessory color.
My simple carnation arrangement
trayed with beach rocks and other treasures
has brought me so much joy
every time I walk into the living room
that our true Autumn is around the corner.
It was our traditional Labor Day apple picking
that brought back bushels
of styling freshness.
Not only was apple picking a most lovely way for
the family to spend the day together …
I was able to bring back
some perfect Autumn styling ingredients!
I love fall styling with apples!
It's easy and instantaneous!
For me apples speak to new school year beginnings ...
times spent with family and friends …
cozy times cuddling inside!
First off this year
the home grown dahlias
on my dining table
were replaced with a large
gorgeous basket filled to the brim with
fresh picked apples!
Apples made their way to
announcing this weeks family meal theme …
where tortilla soup was served in cream tureens …
For the place setting
I simply integrated some brown wicker
into my blue and white scheme
with some floral linens
to tie the
transitioning fall decor together.
Apples made it onto the bar
in the most simplest of manners
by just setting them out on the bar trays!
Introducing natural elements
into my decor
is one of my very favorite
instant seasonal style tips!
Mixing apples into vignettes
is instant fall color and mood!
My courtyard is still summer thriving
so I am just introducing
some focal points of falls oranges inside.
I was just smitten with the colors in these cone flowers
when I saw them
so I bought them right out
found the perfect home for them
by planting them in my vintage coal bucket.
I set a hanging color bowl
in my terra-cotta urn
with no planting involved!
Because I have been decorating seasonally
for So many years by now
I have learned
my very favorite short cuts.
By getting the biggest impact
from the least amount of effort
I am able to truly enjoy
bringing the changing seasons
inside my home
as a reminder
to truly celebrate and enjoy
whatever your season in life is today!
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
