October. It is a fabulous month. A month where the macabre is king. Gothic colouring, industrial tones, flickering candle light. My inner witch is alive, as I feel I want to make bowls of steaming broth, preserve the harvest and fill my home with textiles and fir cones.
Here I have styled it with a little October vignette. Using a large glass bottle which I lugged back from our trip to France this year. A sheep skull that belongs to Charlie, and of course a jar full of feathers. On the wall is my favourite make at this time of year, a wreath made from dried stems of old sweet pea plants. I just leave them to dry naturally after they have stopped producing flowers. Curl them over to form a ring. Quick and easy. You can find the tutorial here.To enter the competition, as usual, you must style your found, foraged, gathered or grow items from nature (I think you can see here, that it does mean all, skulls, feathers, fir cones, branches, dried seed heads – anything) and tag your image on Instagram with #natureinthehome.
Don’t forget to follow both @roseandgreyinteriors and me @littlegreenshed – and tag us in too!
The winning image will receive one of these trolleys and the 8 runners-up will each receive a recycled glass vase. WIN!
Winner will be announced on 31st October. Good luck!
