No, I’m not sad…though I was in a bit of a funk a couple of weeks ago about not having my fall decorating done. I am trying something new this year by adding pops of cool turquoise/teal blue. I love the way it contrasts with the warm golds, browns, burgundies, pumpkins & greens that are traditional for autumn.
It reminds me of fall leaves against a clear blue sky…or blazing autumn foliage surrounding a cool mountain lake.
I love the contrast in color temperature.
By the way, I spray painted these 2 little pitchers last spring. One was given to me by my mom when she was moving/down-sizing and was cobalt blue…the other was a 99 cent thrift find in a brown crackle. Spray painting is a great way to repurpose a pitcher that you want to use for display. This ocean blue was a high gloss. I sprayed another thrift store pitcher in a satin green. Speaking of frugal decorating, the little oval wreath was another thrift find at $1.99 and the Live Love Laugh mini vases were picked up in the Target bargain bins last fall for $2.50. Yeah, baby!
What about you? Are you a traditionalist…or do you like playing with unexpected seasonal colors?
