5 things we love about fall

It’s official, it’s fall.

Autumn is here. It’s that time of the year when the days get shorter and the shadows get longer. As summer bows out and the leaves start falling we start gearing up for the new season. To get you excited too, here are 11 things we love about fall. (Don’t worry, pumpkin spice doesn’t even make the list!)

1 – Last night we ate the last of the tomatoes, and the garden is finished for the season. No more weeding!


2 – Pumpkins are for sale around every corner, and the entire web is filled with painted pumpkin ideas. A great easy decorating idea for any style of home.


3 – The colors change, and our flower decor changes with it. Orange, red, yellow, brown, with accents of green evoke the feeling of the season. This vase is painted in French Linen Chalk Paint® and Salt Wash, which gives it the perfect texture. The perfect warm neutral to complement an autumn color palette.


4 – In Maine autumn, that means glorious scenic colors and lovely soft afternoon light tinted with orange.


5 – It’s a good time to cuddle up with a good book, and to do that we have the perfect chair. Upholstered in our Olicana Melton wool, it’s soft, cozy, and perfect for brisk evenings, just add a cashmere blanket and a cup of cocoa. The arms and legs are painted with a 50/50 mix of Emperor’s Silk and Primer Red Chalk Paint.


Fall is the perfect time for projects, and to begin the nesting process as we look forward to the next season.
