Starting with September, Katy & Charlotte have challenged us to reflect the change of seasons and in our own homes. We can choose any surface in our home (shelf, dining table, mantelpieces etc.) and style that surface to reflect the new month and what it means to us (relaxation, celebrations, family, nature). Then share our images by using the hashtag #StylingtheSeasons.
So of course, I chose my mantel and found & gathered items from nature. To me September really straddles the seasons. One foot still firmly planted in Summer while the other is just dipping it’s toe into Autumn. I have tried to reflect this by using a mix of items. Dried flower heads from blooms now faded, shells from beach holidays, pressed flowers from June meadows. Feathers and a fox skull from recent walks, and the orange berries to signify the change to Autumn.
Yes, September, you still feel like summer to me… with a hint of Autumn.
Why not join in with #stylingtheseasons, you can do so at any point during September. I shall be back for October.
p.s. – I have been NOMINATED! In the Amara Interior blog awards. OMG! Thank you. Voting is now open, if you feel like voting for me, please hop over here. Thank you xx
