Transitioning from Summer to Fall
This time of year my social media is a hot mess of posts that go a little something like this… “YEAH fall” with a photo of a pumpkin spice latte surrounded by pumpkins, direclty followed by, “don’t be that girl Becky, it’s still summer”. So, let’s talk about it! When is it considered “acceptable” to get out those fall decorations?
First let’s talk about what we see outside. Here in Pennsylvania we still have hot summer days, green grass and flowers in bloom; BUT pumpkins have start growing and even harvested. So you can see the dillemma!
Now I have a small assignment for you… What I want you to do, is take any orange item from that fall decoration bin and hold it next to your summer decor. It surprisingly works to complement each other, right?! So why not create a blend of summer and fall, until the hardcore fall season is upon us!
If you noticed the top picture of this post, there’s nothing that screams fall, but also nothing that’s over-the-top summer either, right?
Orange pairs very well with muted and pastel colors making for an easy transition from summer to fall. It’s when you add-in the more dramatic colors like red and yellow or black and brown that you have more of a fall appearance.
We decided to take it one step further and use some dried naturals in both the summer and fall colors. Combining a soft purple with muted wood flowers, dried corn stalks and putka pods, we created Summer/Fall decor pieces that can easily be accepted for this time of year, straight through the fall season.
Let us know what you think!
