Hello September and hello to the official start of Styling the Seasons. As a summer person my inspiration for the month is holding onto the last light filled days of the season. I love summer and instead of feeling sad that the last sunny days are ebbing away I'm going to celebrate and make the most of these glorious sunny days, when the light is golden and there are still roses blooming in my garden.
So onto this months Styling The Seasons; I had friends over a few weeks ago and decided on an "End of Summer" theme for the table. It's the first time our dining table has been used for more than two of us and actually the first time we've had space to have people round for dinner so it was a pretty big deal! I made a jazzy tie-dye table cloth (tutorial coming soon), filled jars with sun-flowers, dahlias and oranges roses to hint at autumn days ahead. I went crazy for candles - using a mix of storm lanterns, tea-lights and candle sticks. It provided a perfectly cosy atmosphere and distracted from the lack of proper lighting in this room!
I've gone big this month but you don't have to if you want to play along. You can style any surface from window sill to a dining table, bedside table to desk and share what the month means to you, Katy and I can't wait to see. If you want to see more inspiration then hop over the the wonderful Apartment Apothecary and see Katy's Styling The Seasons, its gorgeous.
Make sure you use the hashtag #StylingTheSeasons on any of your favourite social media channels so we can see all the good stuff you've been doing. Have a super month everyone! x
