what's new?

So what's new?
These gorgeous yellow and orange mums and purple salvia pots on our front steps.
They certainly herald in the fall season perfectly.

I recently painted one wall in the diningroom this nice dark orange color. We just love it so much and it really helps warm the room and add a bit of drama. The front hallway was all white and very sterile and cold, so I painted it a nice soft vanilla color. Just a touch of color to warm it up and still make it feel as open as possible.

It's so nice to have petite pumpkins around the house to add cheer and anticipation for Hallowe'en and Thanksgiving. I will be cooking up a big dinner next Monday and bake a few pies the day before.

I got these cute hats from Caban - they had a huge closing sale and I just adored these two, forest green cordoroy hat and rust wool felt to add some style and warmth to my ensemble. Steve says I will probably never wear them, so I better prove him wrong! I'm trying to become more of a 'hat person'.

We saw this print at Moore Gallery by May Karp, a photo artist, and really liked all her works. This one is called 'Urban Reflections #1' and alot of her pieces are inspired from Toronto and New York City.

Nice front steps!
Good color choices for the house.
I want to get some Mums for our front steps up to the house.
