I decided to dress our farmhouse hutch in plums and shades of green. Last year I used white and green, and the year before I went really neutral. I don’t often use many berry colors or reds around the house, however I loved the berry branches off our ornamental crab tree snipped from the front yard, and they looked so pretty with the silvery foliage and pine needles.I know it’s not officially fall yet, but it’s always fun to play. My limelight hydrangea is just getting started with it’s blooms, which I look forward to each year.
It always amazes me when I start collecting things of like colors- like all of the little mint and green color accents- how things instantly feel collected and purposeful.
The more fruit trees, veges and flowers I plant- fall starts to become more associated with what we are harvesting and less with pumpkins and crunchy leaves. Grabbing fresh blooms, a variety of foliage, and using fresh fruit is an inexpensive and colorful way to sprinkle a little fall throughout the home. Perhaps next year we we will have more room in the garden for planting up pumpkins.
While they are in a completely different family of green than most of what I collected, I just couldn’t resist plopping these fresh little apples from our tree in my favorite little tulip glassware.
It was fun to spend the morning styling and shooting. It feels like its been a while since I had my camera out- and while it felt soooo good to get creative, I also felt a little rusty. It reminds me how much I love decorating and styling little spots throughout our home. Hope you enjoyed this vignette. I’m working on putting together a room tour or two of different parts of our home that are ready to welcome the changing season.
Blessings to you today,
