Kick Off to Fall

September has arrived with “star quality” with fabulous temperatures and fabulous breezes that really make it feel like FALL is here and even a little early.

Just a little prayerful thought….. Please don’t mess with us, Mother Nature – make this the “real deal”!    It inspires me so….

It’s actually the best introduction to September that I can remember.

It’s perfect for the kick-off to the football!  GO DAWGS!   That’s a big part of our Fall season – Georgia Football.



Yes, it’s UGA season at our house all year round with our mentions of the RED and BLACK in our interiors, but I feel like football really gets us in the mood for a BIG introduction to FALL, y’all!

There’s been some major porch sitting in my days, coffee sipping in the morning while I contemplate my day, check my email, and take care of any project needs over the phone and on my laptop.

(If you missed it, I wrote about porches on a recent blog…. Read it here!)

It’s an awesome perk to be able to convert my porch into my office, when it’s beautiful weather!

And we tend to eat our evening meal on the back porch, too.  We are definitely porch dwellers!

Can you believe it?  The leaves are starting to turn, creating a beautiful color palette in our landscape…. I wonder if it’s because we’ve had such a wet Summertime this year…..  Hmmm.  No complaints here!   I LOVE the transition with the landscape, and it can also generate your thoughts and designs for your interiors.  It’s a great time of the year for updates, before we get too close to the Holidays.  They will be here before we blink twice!

My color palette in my home speaks of FALL colors all year round with rich jewel tones – because I LOVE color!  And I love making changes and updates in my interiors, too.



Interior moods are changing with paint colors, fabrics and accessories.  We tend to need more warmth in our attention to details this time of the year.  Our perspective changes a little bit, too.  Right?

We are enjoying this cool start to this morning, on the porch at our mountain retreat, coffee in hand, and it really feels like FALL has made an appearance.  (I am telling you, we are porch dwellers, even here!) I’m so very blessed that the Red Bird Cottage is our new home away from home…..and we are putting Fall into our interiors here too, just in time for the season to be in “full color”.




We will be renting our cottage soon…..We are almost ready!

Please give me a shout to get your updates in motion for FALL and for the Holidays ahead!  I look forward to helping you with your design projects too!  Let’s get US on the calendar!
