Do you decorate following the change of seasons? I do. Not big changes, but small additions or switches that add enveloping textures with the temperature drops and lighten the rooms when the heat comes. This year, for fall, it’s all about contradictions for me: warm and cool tones, velvets and linens. When it comes to fall decorating though, I like to keep things simple, as Julie Blanner did in her own home. Nothing tacky and flashy with banners wishing the world a happy Harvest or Halloween. I mean, I’ll get around to decorating a few pumpkins and my front porch for the said All Hallows Eve, but for now, its much more subdued and in good taste: a few gourds and white pumpkins (painted ones work too, but since I’ve done it last year, I’ll keep mine natural this time around), a wreath or two and a noce low centrepiece on the dining room table.
