I'm no longer in denial about the changing weather. Days are still warm, but nights have gotten wonderfully chilly. The best night's sleep happens under a light quilt in the fall!
The change in light and temperature in the daytime has me switching things up too. An umber colored picture frame holds a couple of botanical prints hung loosely inside creating a leafy still life with the lamp shade and dried blooms. Little tokens of autumn will no doubt be added here as the season progresses.
A vintage whisk broom from a summer junking foray sits on top of a small woven trunk given to me by old friends and adds to the earthy elements that I like to use in fall.
It's a busier look than I have had in this room for awhile. I had a very spare treatment here all summer with only a chippy tin tile and lamp on top of the cabinet. But with the changing light the white paint was looking especially dingy, and I am ready for a change.
I'm enjoying the difference. Especially in evening light.
I have also pulled out a few things that have been stowed away for awhile like these older clock motif dipping bowls from Pottery Barn. I often keep the packaging, like this box they came in, because it's all styled so well.
Time is marching on. . . .
I have also pulled out my newest brown transferware find to hold small bits of things on the coffee table. I wonder why I find these old pieces so comforting?
So perfect for fall. . . .
And a shot or two under lamplight. . . .
I hope you enjoy these last few days of summer!
It's time to get cozy. . . .
Have a great week!
