What a beautiful season! Leaves are changing, all the grass in the ditches have headed out. This is a great time to go for a drive in the country with your kids and do some ditch picking. Fill your vases at home with beautiful red willows, rich brown cat tails and golden grasses. The abundance of squash and decorative pumpkin/gourds available at your local greenhouse or garden are an easy and natural way to tie in to the season. Mother Nature has it all!
At this time of year we are getting use to less daylight and a bit brisker temperatures. So the addition of a beautiful fireplace is a welcome one! There are so many amazing options to choose from to suit your style. You don’t have to go to the expense and trouble of natural gas or wood burning fireplaces, as there are many energy efficient electric models that look great and give you the warmth you are craving. As well, by adding a few pillows, throws, and accessories, you can easily bring fall colours into your home and spruce up your space.
Don’t be concerned that it will not tie into upcoming seasons. A great orange chair, for example, also looks great in the spring and summer. Jazz it up with some teal or even yellow, and it will have a whole new life! So embrace the season, it is one of the most picturesque ones we get!
