The calendar has turned the page to August and although for some, summer is still in full stride for others invariably thoughts drift to Fall. I still have all my Summer seashell decor in full display but I have started reviewing my Autumn posts, recipes and ideas to prepare for the slow transition into Fall.
I showed you my summertime mantel a few weeks ago when I shared my new mirror. The mantel decor included sea shells, starfish and coral. I feel like I just brought these out and I am already talking about putting them away shortly.
Most of us are spending more time at home so you would think I would have gotten tired of my summertime decor sooner but it’s quite the opposite. I am enjoying it and I will linger a little bit longer before I start transitioning to Fall.
The ornamental bird cage is one of my favorite things to style through the year for different seasons and holidays. I used my large sea fan, a large sea conch and large piece of coral here. Yes these items are all on repeat through the house.
Although we didn’t see much of the beach this summer it still evokes that coastal vibe I associate with summertime. Miss M will start her Junior year in high school mid month and that’s when I’ll probably start to transition my decor to Autumn vibes.
Soon I will slowly replace all these shells, corals and starfish which pumpkins, acorns, gourds and more. Right now I have a small shell vignette in the foyer to welcome you into our home when you walk in.
These are unprecedented times to say the least so I think many of us are enjoying the sanctuary of our homes. We are all doing projects around our homes whether inside or out in the yard. I don’t know if this is necessarily a bad thing? I am trying to keep our home happy and healthy no matter what the season.
