So many of you commented that you enjoyed a softer look for fall that I thought I would show you a few of my recent choices.
I'm in my work room/nursery/guest room getting ready for ironing, so come right in! It's a rare cloudy day, and I have too many reflections to work with, but this is what we got! You have already seen my dish choices if you have been visiting the blog, but I am also incorporating more deep linen colors this time of year. By "deep" I mean natural undyed linen and off white threads and fabrics.
I'm loving the sepia color of this pair of French prints I found. The white frame with just a touch of gold is perfect for them!
Lots of silver casting light around makes me happy in the cooler months.
I actually went hunting for floral prints, and was lucky enough to find a couple of them in perfect muted tones and colors.
And these are the new pieces that I'm ironing! I want to say that I do love a rumpled look every bit as much as a smooth ironed finish, and so you should see them before. . . .
The larger item is an over sized towel of the type one would hang on a nice washstand to show it off. (Or actually use!)
Just look at that fantastic inset!
And yummy trim to finish it off. . . . (it's a good three inches!)
Pressing will really make the details show better, and I would only hang it for use if it was ironed.
I am showing this small runner on a dark background to show you the rose detail that the iron will bring out.
Battenburg lace is always lovely. . .
but only after pressing will you be more able to see the heart motif! This is not an especially old piece, and it has a small dark stain that did not soak out. But it is a very long valance that I will use as a shelf runner, or turn into a basket liner. Five bucks!
Russet and yellow, with a softness. . . .
Deep color mixed with lots of white keeps things light. But I will always have soft gowns and garments hanging in here anyway!
Check out that billowy drape!
And sweet hand-worked details. . . .
Now back to work!
I hope it's a fantastic weekend for you!
