This new series celebrates and embraces each month, where people are encouraged to decorate and style an area of their home to reflect what it means for them; for me September is always a transitional month, a month to buffer the end of summer and the start of autumn, a month of change where anything is possible
So after sifting through the clutter, I filled the shelf with the last hints of summer pinks and the warm hues of autumn setting in. Nothing beats freshly cut flowers and these Dahlia are no exception, placed alongside a succulent, a decorative gourd and fallen leaves, these small touches brings nature into the home.
The vintage mirror was handed down to me from my mum, and has been spruced up and hung using cotton ribbon making use of the original picture rail, while the circle print is new and something I had my eye on for a while and can be found here. On the other side of the mantle is my collection of Sasek books and The Deer Wedding picture, that has travelled with us over the years and is by a Croatian artist, Ivan Generalic.
The recent issue of the wonderful Lionheart magazine – which I suggest you promptly go out and buy right now – is all about home and it has struck a chord, I need to spend more time cherishing the home, making laughter ring inside these four walls, so F can look back at his childhood with loving memories of the rooms we shared. I remember reading the lovely Hannah's blog when she moved up sticks from London to Kent and her love affair that started with the house, all these things stick in my mind as we busy ourselves, rushing around and seemingly missing a trick.
To get involved all you need to do is share your photographs of your styled surface on any day this month – use Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or your blog, if you have one. Please tag Katy and Charlotte and use the hashtag #StylingTheSeasons. You can also search the hashtag for styling inspiration from the other wonderful bloggers and creatives who are taking part.
I can't wait to take a peek at your September.
