It is hard to believe that September just around the corner.
And while I am soaking up summer and enjoying all that it brings- I am also thinking ahead on seasonal decor. Bloggers start early with sharing seasonal decor ideas to be able to share and inspire- and I might already be thinking Christmas over here – so of course autumn is on my mind too.
Today it is all about a few simple natural seasonal touches that are perfect for August and September- no bold oranges yet-just rosy apples, coppers and natural woods- and when you are ready to add in those pumpkins- they will fit in perfectly.
When it comes to autumn and I am all about simple and natural.
It is pretty much my go -to motto.
I love natural bits- like acorns, wheat, branches and fruit.
In addition to the soft toned pumpkins of course-
but with no pumpkins in the house just yet
I am keeping it simple with a few other ways to warm up the room with seasonal touches
Things like stacks of breadboards and copper in abundance.
Bowls full of rosy apples on the counter
and pretty pomegranates in a wood bowl on the island.
With just a few sprigs of silver dollar eucalyptus-
these bunches of pomegranate were pretty much perfection.
And in a break from my usual pastels- and soft blush pinks-
I was feeling a bit more bold with those rosy toned pomegranates.
I know… what has happened.
I love natural wood as well- these simple chargers stacked up for a pretty stand for a vintage copper bowl. And I love the wooden bowls in the background as well. I tend to like to echo elements
and think in layers- like wood, copper, etc.
And those wax covered gold candles on the island while I was gathering up table setting elements
became part of the photo. Because- they were speaking to me just sitting there looking pretty.
Sometimes it is the unexpected element that makes the mingle work and adds more interest.
Of course that stack of copper under the island and on repeat on the counter and range
brings a cozy warm feeling-especially when paired with the natural woods.
Simple and sweet is key for me- especially when talking about early seasonal touches.
And… something else that is a favorite- that I confess I have in my kitchen right.now. as is?
A vintage blue can with gorgeous green hydrangeas.
That is pretty much early autumn perfection if you ask me.

Happy Wednesday everyone!!
