Natural & Light Autumn Home

As we ease away from Halloween
 and work our way towards Thanksgiving-
here are a few of our light and natural
 autumn-themed pieces to share with you.

Be it linen or burlap, leaves, twigs, stone or metal stamped leaves-
natural & neutral elements work well in any home.

Boiled wool, wicker and raffia make wonderful 
natural elements
to bring a warm, rustic and cozy look to your space

A simple tucked-away ironstone pumpkin inside
a shabby chicken-wire cloche pair well together.

A slender white entryway hall foyer cabinet
holds some easy pieces for a subtle nod to autumn 

Keep stocked up for the scent of autumn -
White Barn Candle Company's "Leaves" is a true favorite!

Or this sweet little harvest moon votive candle holder -
 the first gift I ever gave my husband - and he kept it!

We recently celebrated our 14th "Dataversary!"

Sometimes simply just switching pillows brings in 
a little fall colour
 to a space without too much fuss or expense!

Having a cabinet to display seasonal favorites
is a true blessing.

Couldn't find real mini boos this year
so we hope to grow our own
 in our own garden next year!

Nothing says "November" like acorns - 
found these handmade sculpted ones from an Etsy artist
a few years ago.

Take a simple vessel and fill with fresh coffee beans;
nestle down a candle inside (esp vanilla) and
when it burns it delights the senses with sweet aromas!

This was given to me as a hostess gift from 
my dear friend Melinda.  ♥

Little subtle touches go a long way to hint at a season-
such as this change of colour of candle
 and/or candle ring inside my lantern.

Soon I'll be sharing where I use traditional
 harvest colours in our nest.

As always, thanks for your visit!

  10. You carry off a neutral theme for November very well in your home. I like to burn scented candles too, they add to using the senses to enjoy a room.

  11. Very pretty, Michele! I've noticed that over the past few years I've gone toward the neutrals and whites more, too. I did keep the more colorful Fall colors in my outside decorating though.

  22. Your home is elegant and you've decorated in a classic, understated, beautiful way. I love your cupboard display - love those white pumpkin plates!

  23. I love your softly colored fall palette and greatly appreciate all the fab ideas! Also, that idea about the candle nestled amongst coffee beans is just brilliant! (I wish tea leaves would work the same way, but ... probably not, eh!)

  27. I love the neutral colors of your Fall décor! You have so many pretty textured and patterned pumpkins that add a lot of interest to the room. I like the symmetry of your room as well.

  28. You have a lovely collection of pumpkins Michele. I'm not sure which one is my favorite, but they are just lovely.
    Hooked up my new computer and guess what? It doesn't work - at all. Frustrating. So I rehooked up my old one and not sure what I'm going to do about the new one yet.

  29. Well yes!! You already know I love this. I envy how roomy your hutch is to show off a few lovely things to wonderful effect. I adore the chenille pumpkin and the one with checks. Lots of wonderful natural textures make me feel so cozy! Beautifully done.

  30. Love your calm and peaceful look for Autumn!
