Styling the seasons ~ September

And just like that, summer fell into fall.

Straddling summer & Autumn; September is such a delightful mix of balmy sunny days & chilly dusk evenings; with romps in the orchard & warm cheese scones, damp starts, hot tea & socks! 

Wool cushions & blankets have just started re-appearing on the sofa as evenings are drawing in; Lily’s bedtime has just become a cozy lamp-lit affair again.

Picking plums & damsons at the weekend in the bright bloom sunshine, felt more like a late summers day. But bringing the baskets home & lighting the fire; pricking the damsons to soak in gin; halving plums for crumbles & compotes, bubbling jam on the stove; it reminds me of the chilly days yet to come.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all jumpers & jacket potatoes yet, rather just a gentle nod into the approaching season. 

And so here it is…my {apologies, rather quickly} styled mantle; our few remaining jars & empty bottles  have been glugged with generous amounts of gin, and we await the pinky ink to spill out of the damsons; to colour & flavour our tipple for winter ahead.  

Stockpiling orchard treasures, it feels like we’re hunkering down…& it certainly feels like our home is ready to follow suit; to cloak itself in blankets, extra cushions & throws again. 

So please excuse my fewer than usual; much moodier than usual; styling the seasons shots. I just wanted to capture the light & dark, …oh, and also to share that we’re currently re-painting the entire ground floor {which is taking me much longer than anticipated!} hence the odd patch of colour tests you might peek on the walls above.

Looking forward to sharing our, more Autumnal, home with you soon,

  1. This is so beautiful, Jess. It’s really interesting to see you using a different style to your normal one, using the light and shade – such a wonderful outcome and perfect for Autumn. xx
