Autumnal Inspirations

A little town called Hopewell Junction, October 2017

If you are like me or most people Instagram is total eye candy.  I've been saving some of my likes on instagram, I think when I do look back at them I can smell the crisp leaves.  I've been mentioning this to my daughter lately.  Do you smell the leaves? This past weekend we drove upstate and at one point I pulled the car over so we can walk in the leaves, and smell the change of seasons.  It's so refreshing and relaxing.

The photo above from I Spy Diy, a blog and website of diy projects is filled with inspiration! The style and colors are usually modern with pops of brights and neons.  This photo I particularly love because of the soft shades of autumn shown.  Instead of the bright, and deep shades she shows the subtle, soft faded and burnt shades of autumn.  It's so quiet and beautiful.

This photo is from Domino Magazine on Instagram. This is a popular trend here in Brooklyn.  People are decorating the door steps and stoops and you are asked to use the garden level entrance.  This sort of decorating makes it look so bountiful. 

Have you been getting inspired by fall foliage and pumpkins everywhere?

Chihuly at the New York Botanical Garden

Breathtaking is one word. Awe-inspiring, another.  Dale Chihuly, an American artist who works with glass,  has created dramatic new pieces inspired by his Artwork Installations of 1975 in Lewiston, NY.  I first saw his work when I lived in Portland.  It's always overwhelming and beautiful and I can't help think, how does he do that? What he does with glass is unbelievable and inspirational.  The New York Botanical Garden always has amazing art exhibits.  They never seem to disappoint.  And this summer is no different.  Chihuly has pieces are scattered throughout the New York Botanical Garden complementing and enhancing.  A wonderful place to escape to during a hot summer in the city.

Blush: Color of the Moment

Have you noticed all the blush, dusty peach, faded pink colors out there lately? It's showing up in home, apparel, interiors, accessories. It's amazing. It's a beautiful shade and when put together with other colors it can be a sophisticated new addition. Here are a few of my faves. 

Many of these are from companies I follow on Instagram so I have kept the company name on the photo. From left to right,  the farmhouse project,   selvedge magazine ,  abc carpet and home .

Blush pinks have a bit of yellow to them and are dustier than your baby pink.  It looks refreshing with spring green which is a lighter, brighter shade.  It also looks sharp next to pea green or golden ochre.

pink and tan

This photo has been on my inspiration wall for a few months now. Unfortunately I cannot remember where it was from. It is from a magazine, possible NY Times Style.  It is actually swatches of wall to wall carpeting but I ripped it out because I love the rose pink shades next to the taupes.
