feels like fall

September 8, 2011 § Leave a comment

with the influx of autumn inspired magazines, all styled with cozy looking blankets, cable knit pillows, and crock pots galore it is officially beginning to feel like fall. aside from the (still) 100 degree days, we can’t help but look forward to holiday decor and hot chocolate by the fire.

today my inspiration board made the transition from summer brights to fall, with cooler colors and warmer looking rooms. loving lots of texture and repeat patterns in the gray and turquoise palette, perfectly curated by west elm and sur la table (oddly enough). my wall looks something like this…

no water necessary

we love to garden. that being said, pretty much every flower we have ever bought and planted has died. so we decided to plant a succulent garden in the hope that these hardy little cacti will survive our not so green thumbs. not only are they easy to grow but they’re super cool looking too. we have our collection outside on a vintage potting bench but they would look good as a pop of green anywhere in the house as well.

prickly but pretty.

shades of grey

despite the fact that it is the middle of may in southern california, the sun still refuses to shine. in fact these past few days have been down right soggy  but we love the rain so we are definitely not complaining. the more time we spend in the house, the faster it will get decorated.

we are currently liking the way shades of grey play off each other to create an almost storybook appeal. grey with the addition of stone and mossy green accents makes for a room reminiscent of the outdoors within the cozy of four walls.

we hope you think so too.

luck of the draw

today is brought to you by the number 13 in celebration of Friday the 13th and all other things that are lucky. we have found random numbers and letters to be intriguing design elements that add a little whimsy to any space they happen to inhabit.

lucky for us, we have a full arsenal of numeric inspiration. now that’s something you can count on.

writing on the wall

we have a sort of affinity for chalkboards and chalkboard walls. basically anything that can be written on is awesome in our book.

we are currently deciding which wall and/or walls in our new house should be painted, more specifically, painted in a nice shade of black chalkboard paint. here are some favorites to inspire…
