Autumn Ideas

Autumn is my favourite season.  I love the warm colours, the sweet scent in the air and the cosy feel of the heating being put on after summer.  I was looking for some ideas for decorating the home, because why only decorate at Christmas?

Perfect for your outside areas... I could sit there and read all day.

Use pumpkins to decorate vases and ornaments.

This wreath is so beautiful, and hung on your front door, it will give visitors a warm welcome.

Perfect table decorations for dinner parties and romantic nights in.

A nice way to decorate your side units and hall tables.

Have fun with decorating champagne flutes and wine glasses.  Or why not your coffee and tea cups?

Great for mantle pieces.

Use vintage style tins and boxes to display rich coloured bouquets, indoors or outdoors.

By the way, thank you ladies for your input on what sort of style to go for with my Daughter's bedroom.  I think the second from last image was the winner, and we will be using that for inspiration :)

I love Autumn too. I love the pictures you source. I loved the last picture but last on the bedrooms so am glad you are using that as inspiration. Can't wait to see the finished room.

AAwww thanks hun!
Next month i'm planning to paint the walls in both the bedrooms.....pink ground from F&B..on one wall in each room and off white on the others, they are the only rooms that have never been painted. So i'd like to get that done!
I do love the shabby chic thing....hope it never ends!xxx

Your blog is full of amazing ideas. I noticed in a few of your pictures that there were appliques in them. Did you get them from www.doityourselfchic.com because I think their appliques are phenomenal. I'm so excited I found another do it yourself Chic! user (that's what my friends and I like to call each other). I used many of their appliques on my home projects and they turn out perfect. I'm so excited that I recognized their appliques in your pictures. Their business is growing so wonderfully and I want to help spread the word!!
