The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Easin' Into Autumn. . .

The Entry Hall On Crooked Creek
not only welcomes our family, friends and guests,
but it also sets the stage for Seasonal changes.

Although we didn't receive measurable rain. . . 
the air changed, the skies darkened and the thunder roared. . .
which was all the prompting I need for Easin' Into Autumn!!!

The backdrop for the entry hall is already staged with a vintage heirloom print and flanked by two hurricane sconces. The reverence of this print reflects my beloved in~laws. I adore its soft hues and tiger oak frame!

I began by draping the top of the console table with a fringed throw rich in browns, golds, rusts with soft subtle touches of sage green and blue. Gently folded so that the border had prominence along the perimeter and softening each corner, yet leaving the drawers accessible.

The vintage counter check holder remains on the entry hall console for holding out going mail throughout the year! This time I decided to center it, as I only have two pieces of vintage crockery.

Adding the vintage brown jug proved to be more of a challenge than I realized. The height of this jug  wouldn't allow for easy flow within the vignette I was trying to create!

Bringing "Mr. Ed's" rabbit water bowl from his childhood into the vignette allowed for additional lighter hues, but still the flow was awkward.

Placing the brown jug to the left of the florals and the water bowl to the right, gave the movement I was seeking.

Pushing the counter check holder closer to the empty crock gave enough variation of hues for interest.

a bit more streamlined appearance to the entry hall.

However, I felt the look was almost stark!
So~o~o. . .

Placing berry rings of the same browns, golds, rusts and sage greens to the base of the hurricane sconces added visiual interest!
