...happy autumn dear readers!
it has now officially arrived
and i have been decorating my front entrance
in the shades that have been inspiring me as of late
can you guess what those colors might be...
it. is. true.
and there is no escaping it ~
i have fairytale sea pumpkins on my mind!
when i was designing my autumn entrance
my inspiration started with this hand painted sign
from our creatively inspired Dore of Burlap Luxe!
you may remember this shelter sign from this post
i have completely and utterly fallen in love with Dore's soulful world of soft washed blue-greys!
my design style is also influenced by that of
so much so,
i have ordered some Annie Sloan chalk paint to wash my interior world in
that is for another post!
to this shelter sign,
i have added a few of my own adornments
to make it my own:
lace, rhinestones, a bejeweled cross, sea silk ribbon and a feather
(they are so magical, wouldn't you agree?)
now for the entry table top
(this is the very first piece i shall transform with the AS paint!!)
i wanted a fairytale romance feel...
so i gathered a few pretties
and started to play!
there is a fairytale sea pumpkin
and silkened, ballerina wrapped candle sticks
which have adorned frills on top!
they are comprised of sea silk ribbons,
lace and vintage montee rhinestones
i will never have to light these
as they already sparkle!!
magical ~ no??!
for the bottom of my table ~
a crochet doily, chicken wire dome and silver stand
and an enchanting mercury glass pumpkin
were all that was needed
my cement swan was filled with variegated hydrangea's
i adore how she is dressed for the cooler autumn days!
a complete view
at the top of my shelter sign
i have placed some long lavender stems.
my sea pumpkins also have lavender added to them
as soon as you walk through the front door
it smells lovely!
i am delighted with my autumn fairytale entrance
and hope you were inspired to display a little
fairytale magic in your home!
