Vivid greens are subtly moving into golds and oranges and there’s a bite in the air even on sunny days. My mind is moving on to what I want to do to herald the fall season. I never go all out in these things because my design aesthetic is very understated. The only vibrant things in my home are paintings which for some reason seem to have a lot of orange! I guess I’m honouring fall year round.
I was at the dollar store the other day and saw some great deals on fall foliage. Usually that means pulling bouquets apart and rearranging them so they don’t look like they came from the dollar store. Follow the arrangement as I move it around my kitchen and dining room to see where it looks best.
Would you like to see something taller and a little larger here? I feel there is just too much space between the light fixture and the arrangement. The black chairs are very dark and they demand something larger in scale . Better start looking for more deals and find tall, dark elements and another vase.
This arrangement I keep in my dining room illustrates what a difference height makes even without the bold colours of fall.
With or without the straw placemats ? Your choice. With the placemats it is homey, without is more styled and contemporary.
Do you consider scale and colour when you add accessories to your home?
