Welcome to my blog "I don't know how she does it" and thank you for joining us today in the Harvest Haven Fall Tour 2016, hosted by Summer from "She Leaves A Little Sparkle". I'm so happy to have you here visiting from Zabrina's amazing blog "Z Design at Home". So make yourself comfortable and feel free to grab a PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte) or cappuccino which I've made with love.
During this season I usually love decorating with neutrals, but this year I went a bit out of my comfort zone and stared adding some colors but still with that warm feeling that I love so much about a neutral palette.
On our recently painted door I placed last year's wreath which I updated it with bright foam apples, pears and some real and silk leaves. The contrast it makes against the yellow wall is amazing, wouldn't you agree?
Setting the dinner table is always my favorite part specially during the holidays. This time I use a touch of metallic with some copper and golden accessories just to add a bit of elegance on the setting. Also I added some vintage inspired vases I found a while ago at Pottery Barn. Their Tuscan Terra Cotta collection is my favorite and mixing these surfaces with the metallic elements, brought another interesting contrast to our dinner table. Accessories like candles holders, a menu, whimsical napkin rings, and pumpkins as decorative elements did all the difference when styling.
As you can see you caught me in the middle of some cookie baking and I'm using these super cute cooper cookie cutters from HomeGoods. The cookies will be ready in no time, so please feel free to wait for them; and while you do so, take a peek at those wooden and concrete pumpkins over our window sill. Simple is my middle name and these guys are all I need to bring in that autumnal.
We are finishing up one of our sitting areas with a new pergola, so I hope you can come by again and sit with us to enjoy the weather here in Miami this time of the year. Thank you so much for keeping me company and I hope you've enjoyed my home as much as I did styling it. Now, don't forget that this tour continues with Jennifer's beautiful home at "Decor Gold Designs". Here's the list of all the talents included in this Harvest Haven Fall Tour 2016:
