Autumn Love :: Season’s Inspiration

Autumn Love :: Season’s Inspiration

440 440 Velvet

Hello everyone! It’s October and the air is rising crispier in the mornings and chillier after the sun sets. The daylight hours have shortened and a color feast is taking place right before our very own eyes, as autumn leaves highlight nature’s preparation for winter. Nature now looks absolutely gorgeous, dressed up in warm toned yellows, orange, burnt sienna and deep red hues against moody dark blue, brown and charcoal grey backgrounds! Every leaf that falls is a blessing and despite the strong sense of nostalgia, we should all be deeply thankful and humbled by the beauty that surrounds us. I can’t help but wonder how many of us who live in a city, running about with our busy lives will actually make time to enjoy the great outdoors. I’ve prepared an inspiration board to share with you my love for autumn, including some subtle decor ideas, and get you all in the mood for this incredible season. 🙂

Nature has the most fascinating and ever changing color palette and autumn’s color palette is probably nature’s best. I know that some of you might disagree with me on this, but see first the inspiration board below. Perhaps, you’ll change your mind after that. Remember, there are so many reasons to love autumn, starting with:

  1. the colors of the leaves (stunning warm hues that add warmth to the chilling weather),
  2. cozy fires (including candle lights),
  3. hot chocolate,
  4. caramel apples,
  5. apple crumble,
  6. pumpkin pie,
  7. ideal weather for hiking, cycling, camping and any other outdoor activity including star gazing,
  8. Thanksgiving (for we all have a lot to be thankful for),
  9. Halloween,
  10. and last but not least, the softness of the light that gently resonates an enchanting electricity despite nature’s melancholy.

Anyone still not convinced? Most people I know love summer, for a lot of good reasons too. But fall is a “quite” season for the soul and hence, a great time to prep ourselves for the winter holidays and all the buzz that goes with it. It’s a great time to do a little soul searching and get our life back on track. Don’t you agree? I like to think of it as a “break” and therefore, I’m definitely glad that I have autumns in my life. How about you? Share your thoughts…
