Inspiration: autumn

Autumn... not necessarily everyone's favourite season, as it can bring with it grey skies, rainy days, leaves falling to the ground and hastens the way for frosts, chills and ultimately winter. I love Autumn though and especially the warmth and richness of colour that comes with it. In fact I love that we have 'seasons', each one has its positive and negative aspects and each season has its own inspiration.
For me Autumn starts off the influx of decadent rich deep jewel-like colours. Burnt hues, russets, berries, the lighting of candles and gathering round warming fires, getting cosy. Eating steaming bowls of feel-good food.
As you can see from the above images, I was experimenting with some autumnal bits and pieces, looking and capturing them, burnished Autumn. Having looked around on-line I was lucky enough to stumble upon the blog The Swenglish Home, absolutely stunning and I insist you visit it! Totally inspiring.

Dear Kirsty,

You are so kind! It is an honour to appear here on your blog.

Autumn is indeed an inspirational, colourful season, and your burnt hues, nuts and berries above are lovely.

Wishing you a great start to the new week,
