What an autumn this has been. Warm sunny days seem to be endless… but of course we know better, and that's fine, we are ready. Ready to wrap ourselves into warm knitted jumpers, grabbing a coffee and enjoy the smell of autumn. We will do the same indoor as well, curl up and cosy in…
Nature will guide us in how to use colours to create a warm atmosphere, nature does not ask if things “match” or not, it just explodes, and we love it! Seasonal colours are the best for decoration, and I think because we somehow want to be in line with nature we find it comforting in our daily life. I think seasonal indoor decoration creates a link between nature and us, we are a part of a cycle. It´s a feeling of acceptance, we allow darker colours, as we accept and appreciate the darker time of the year, and we even call it “cosy”.
Forgotten are the long summer nights and the light summer colours that we are so obsessed about, and we indulge in the colours of the new season. When we soon will enter into the world of Winter season, we will add red, green and white I guess. However, let's enjoy the autumn!
I always use what I have for decoration, I display books that are relevant for the season, I fill my bowls and trays with seasonal fruits and vegetables and most of all I like to bring in flowers or branches from the garden, or collecting something on my walks to bring home.
Hope you had some great ideas for your autumn home.
