I could feel the end of summer
in the morning light today
slipping ever closer to my beloved fall.
Every since my childhood school days
it is fall that always feels
so filled with fresh promises of new beginnings.
But before I drift off into Autumn's glow
I want to make sure
I intentionally savor
summer's last weeks.
For me one of the easiest ways to help savor
whatever season is upon me
is to bring
natural style elements into my decor.
Earlier this summer
it was a huge basket of green apples and lilies.
Last month it was stunning sunflowers
making dramatic appearances.
This August I have kept my palette neutral
with just the addition of natural green elements
bringing a color punch to my textured creams
that keep the space feeling calm and open.
I am still savoring my found driftwood
topped with shells filled with limes.
Lighting my candles with coffee
gives me time to enjoy these monochromatic elements
reflect on the morning light.
I have recently added this
three box succulent planter
to my seasonal styling arsenal.
Handmade of blackened steel
You can find it
The size and dimension
make it a perfect piece for some of my quick seasonal styling.
When I found these chartreuse miniature pears at
I new that color would work perfectly into my
End of Summer Styling
this blackened steel piece
would highlight them ever so stylishly!
Raising simple pears
to still life status!
This is a great example of a styling piece
that can quickly adapt for every season.
I already have some beautiful fall ideas in the woks!
Silver bowls are also a wonderfully easy way
to bring in natural seasonal elements
into your rooms.
Adding limes to this gorgeous cake stand
enabled me to bring my pop of natural green
onto our bar.
Small orchids in miniature ceramic buckets
are another easy pop of
late summer color.
In the backyard
a soapstone dish is topped with a shell
for a simple nod to our coastal lifestyle.
I added a flat of white flowers to
my extra large ceramic bowl that I had a stand made to raise it to
focal point status.
It brings a garden element up close for
an entertaining focal point.
Driftwood was notched out and planted with succulents …
for an easy and durable
backyard living room centerpiece.
Last week my white flowers were exhausted
I was wondering what to replace them with …
My husband brought home a huge bag of homegrown lemons
in an instant
a newly revived centerpiece!
my planting of succulents in containers
the last two years
in the courtyard and back
are all doing wonderfully.
The succulents are hearty garden players
when they out grow one space
I simply rework them into new arrangements.
This means most of my garden is already in place
not only for the
end of summer styling
already poised to greet fall's arrival!
For me seasonal home styling is always
when fluffing a new season
can be as simple as a trip to the market
a walk on the beach!
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
