Transitions


The Beach is a little bit confused and chaotic these days...one day it's hot and sunny, the next cool and rainy. My turquoise pumpkin is sharing space with the wicker basket full of beach towels on the bench by the front door.


The decor is still blue and white. A large seashell planted with a pretty pink orchid graces the dining room table...but bowls of pumpkins



and gourds


and berries

are sneaking in.


Some years I stay "blue" until Christmas, I just add chocolate and taupe accents, black transferware.


But this year I found this amazing orange-y/coral quilted cotton throw.


With shells! If I get them sewed over the weekend it will turn into 4 big throw pillows! And then I'll have to get out the brown autumn Staffordshire plates from my mom...


I think it will look pretty, just for a month? How do you all decorate for Autumn?

  1. I love that throw! What a great find. For the month of October, my home is all about the Black, Orange and Purple. Lots of vintagy decor to scare. Come November, I am into the golds, browns, and oranges. Very warm and cozy. Have a great weekend! Kit

  2. LOL, I thought the white gourds in the bowl were seashells when I first looked at them! They go well with your beach-y theme.

    I don't decorate much for seasons anymore, but when I did October was Halloween all the way! Then for November we left the pumpkins and just took down the Halloween-specific decorations.
