[All Photos - Country Living]
These last few days I haven't been able to shake the feeling of Fall.
I can feel it in the shortening of the summer nights and the cool, dewy mornings while the house is still quiet. I can feel myself being drawn to all things that bring comfort and coziness.
I find myself pulling out those hearty Autumn recipes and anticipating the spicy smells of fall baking and the rich tastes of favourite soups and stews.
There is just something about Fall - and even, the anticipation of it.
As fall approaches, and so quickly it seems, my tastes change again. I find I'm drawn to more texture and pattern and a richer pallet full of natural accents.
This is a home that was featured in Country Living that lends to all things Fall in my opinion. Caroline Sheeler, the head buyer for Jayson Home & Garden, has perfectly achieved this style in her gorgeous home that just reminds me of Fall.
Her home is full of texture - clean lines, rough wood, blemished brass and woven carpet.
Her colour pallet is beyond my go-to whites and lend such a sense of boldness to her rooms.
The dark antiques only add to the richness of the rooms.
The additions of natural findings and worn pieces are found all around the house and give each space personality.
This is one of my favourite bathrooms. It's timeless and classic.
Crisp white bead board is a welcomed accent to the rich walls. Her displays of family photos and findings (and even ribbons!) make her house homey and full of character.
The addition of prints and exotic pieces throughout the house are so far from my own personal tastes, but work wonderfully with her decor.
These gorgeous walls are a favourite in this home. They add warmth. The white cabinet in the back is lovely too.
The dark wall colour offsets the coldness of the marble and stainless steel.
And this beautiful front porch with that gorgeous bench. Again, the contrast just makes everything come together so nicely.
Hopefully that provided a little fall inspiration.
I've been so preoccupied this past week that I'm looking forward to sitting down in the coming days and getting started on some Autumn postings. In the meantime, it's back to photographing items for the shop for me! Luckily I've got another pot of coffee on - it's a special blend of mine: Vanilla and Hazelnut beans, freshly ground, with 1/2 tsp. of Pumpkin Spice sprinkled over the grounds per pot.
