For my fall decor this year, I was inspired by the warm, woodsy colors of my hikes in Wisconsin, mixed in with touches of black and white.
I try not to follow any rules and just adorn the place with what makes my heart go pitter patter. This leads me to create interesting textures by mixing items of different materials, such as glass, woven materials, silver, straw, wood, candles, and real pumpkins.
Here are some photos of the dining room both on a regular day when I keep the table filled with interesting things of various heights, and on a dinner party day when I remove obstructive items and replace them with more simple, low-height centerpieces that allow for chatting across the table.
On the table I’m using the Harvest Wheat Jacquard table runner and napkins from Williams-Sonoma (old, similarΒ here),Β NitoΒ napkin ringsΒ and placemats (old, similarΒ here), with myΒ Waterford Padova china,Β Pottery Barn flatware, andΒ Vera Wang crystal beverage glasses. The rest of the decorations are from antique and thrift shops.
Don’t you just love the moody feeling of this dried rose? Plus, you don’t have to pay extra for a fresh bouquet!
Happy Halloween, and enjoy!
