Fall Color in the House

I bought 4 bouquets from Trader Joe’s at $3.99 each to give the house some fall spirit.

The fall flowers co-ordinate with the mantel decoration.

Teamed with leaves from the trees which are currently turning color the house was full of autumn hues.

Coinciding with our shoe cutting party for Sole Hope, I chose sunflowers and their color as the main theme.

I mixed and matched some mixed bouquets to give depth to the mostly yellow sunflowers.

A small vase of buds in the conservatory bathroom lets everyone know it’s not a forgotten room.

A burst of warm color in a blue/grey house is cozylicious.

The house always looks better with fresh flowers.

The flowers can be seen from room to room.

I was not paid nor perked for this post.

Are you planting fall flowers outside?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. It’s too dry to do much, if any, planting. Extreme drought conditions with not much hope for the future. I think 20% chance of rain late next week but often those predictions evaporate by the time the date arrives. Your flowers are lovely.

  2. Looks so pretty, Jo! Our leaves are all but gone already. We had the wettest October on record, and November is following suit. Wish we could share our rain with you.
