Fall Decor

Wednesday, October 10, 2012
 
Every fall, I bring out my seasonal decor. Seeing these items around our apartment make me feel that much more festive for the season. Some favorites are pine cones, cinnamon sticks, and coffee beans. Below you can see a stack of my treasured books, a French edition Vermeer collection, Nomad and Stylist's Guide to NYC by Sibella Court. Our coffee table also includes a block of wood with my grandfather's initials, VR, burned with an iron spoke from his cattle brander used on his farm in Brazil. A little piece of our family history.
 
As seen in the photos, I adore incorporating my deer antlers in to my year round decor, as well as my seasonal decor. Instead of fresh flowers like in summer and spring, we put in dried and richly colored buds for fall in the dining room table centerpiece flanked with two antlers. On our miniature piano, we have a bowl of most of our antlers, joined but some lovely textured twine decor.
 
The only thing that would make the house complete is the smell of cinnamon and nutmeg in some mulled wine on the stovetop. Warm and aromatic, the house would look, smell, and feel like fall.

Salut, Yelle

  6. Wonderful decorations and so apropos for the season! I had some of those twine balls in a bowl on my coffee table for a while and then my dog ate them. So that was bad. I love the sentimentality in that piece from your grandfather. xo

  9. Oh, that is lovely! The deer antlers look perfectly modern in your displays rather than musty-hunting-lodge-esque. I need to find a great fall-scented candle for this year. Hazelnut is my favourite scent. Thanks for visiting my blog! I look forward to reading more of yours.

    1. That is such a compliment! I do try to stray from looking like a lodge in the middle of the woods! I want to keep a little urban nature with me!

    1. I found them at various places! Mostly, an antique store nearby, an antique store in the next town over, and the very first one was a gift!
