I am 100% in fall festive mode, you guys. The perfect October weather, pumpkin flavored everything and coziness at home with fires and good food all make me so deliriously happy. I used to be a summer girl “in my youth” but now I am a full-fledged fall addict. Perhaps it’s because we all go into nesting mode and home become so much more important as we spend more hours inside it. I am so happy to have shot my house for the book last week, because now I can just enjoy it instead of seeing every inch as a “to do” project.
Here are some of what’s on my “fall decor” radar:
Topiaries- The perfect long lasting floral alternative- put a matching pair on a console or bar or a grouping in the center of a dining table.
Gorgeous, simple china- I saw this Wedgewood Intaglio china the other day when scouting for something to use on my table for the shoot. I so wish this was my china! The crisp white simplicity is mixed with fab detail work (including my favorite Greek Key!) If I were going to register for china now it would be this. Or this for something more fancy. In fact, I’d love them mixed!
Striped Taper Candles- This just takes my stripe addiction on step further.
Copper Kettle- I bought one for the shoot last week and I cannot bring myself to return it. It just looks TOO good on my stove!
Feather Art- Loving these amazing black and white feather prints from Jayson Home.
Pumpkin Bread- This Williams Sonoma mix is a favorite, because we don’t all have time to bake form scratch and it makes the house smell awesome.
Champagne Coupes- I also bought these for the shoot and kept them. They are just TOO darling and elegant and I plan on drinking lots of champagne when this book is done.
Rustic Wood Napkin Rings- They offset pressed linen and delicate china in such a cool, autumnal way.
Boxwood Wreaths- Faux or real, I adore boxwood wreaths.
Banner Art- This cracked me up as PERFECT holiday family gathering decor. Let’s all let it go, and enjoy the season, right?
Pumpkin Masque- OBSESSED with this masque (the whole line really). It stings a little, but works wonders at brightening and exfoliating (and is ALL NATURAL). We all need to look our best for the holiday season!
Black Forest Candle- The stylist that helped us on the shoot brought this candle to the shoot and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It’s like the most elegant, non-cloying holiday scent ever. Plus the black container is subtle, dramatic and chic.
Marble and Wood Cutting Board- Awesome if you crave Carrera counters but don’t have them. And gorgeous even if you do! I love the juxtaposition of stone and wood. Fabulous to serve cheeses on too.
