This fall I wondered how our new shabby chic painted items would blend with the colors of fall and some colorful past fall decor. I decided to tone things down a bit and got rid of some orange items. I spray painted some things white too! Since last year, I found a few more Johnson Brother's plates in the pattern "Windsor Ware" now bringing my total to ten. I love that it has a pink rose on it too - must have been a PRE-shabby chic thought! We still haven't gotten the dining room table painted though.
Of special concern was my light pink buffet in the kitchen but I am ok with some faux orange bittersweet here. Those of you who have this growing somewhere nearby are so fortunate - I love the sweet smell.
A little window setting for fall:
If I were planning to live here indefinitely - this mantle and brick would be so vintage white - but we will be retiring in Missouri near our son and daughter in law and 2 grandkids so we are leaving it as is! The same for our kitchen cabinets - we are leaving them in there oak finish. Hubby recently restained them all.
Our nights are already so much cooler - I hope we have a long fall and don't just leap head first into winter here! Have you started decorating for fall yet?
I will be sharing this post at:
