Because summer in Maine is a short season, I hold on to it as long as possible. The time has come to let go, however, as the trees are turning and the leaves are already falling giving hint of the raking and cleanup that is to follow.
Sometimes I don’t change slipcovers from summer to fall because we are only in Maine until early November.
Today I had some free time and a burst of energy and set about changing things around to celebrate the first day of fall. Off came the light slips to be replaced by these with rich colors reflective of the newly arrived season. And just because, I moved furniture around, too.
I’ve sworn not to buy anything new so much of the changing look came from shopping the house. As I looked around, I noticed turquoise accents here and there so that became the “new”.
Throw pillows from another room are added to the mix of fabrics on the sofa. The turquoise doesn’t seem to mind being thrown in with the reds and golds.
In the cabinet where there are so many candles I forget what they are, I found ones to carry out the color scheme.
It’s amazing what shows up when you start looking!
Moving things from one place to another gives the table top a new look and a spray of flowers from a recent visit to Trader Joe’s provides the finishing touch.
Now that wasn’t too hard and the changes give the room a totally new look, warm and textured as befits fall. So, if you are thinking about what to do for fall, my suggestion is use what you have differently. You might be surprised what happens.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
