I seldom decorate for fall. I do warm up the house with candles and throws and other cozy things, but I'm not a big fan of Halloween and somehow the autumn season seems so short I just never find the time to really fallify my home. I prefer longer lasting decorating, making and displaying things that can span the seasons but still add a little warmth and fun.
Something about ticking stripes has captured my fancy this year. The simplicity of the stripes has to be one thing I love, and their ability to pair with so many other patterns is another. I grabbed some ticking scraps recently and came up with this little table runner.
Kind of farmhouse, kind of cottage, I think it goes well with my red transfer ware and even with my plain white plates. I love the deep ruffles on each end, and the toile I paired with the two kinds of ticking.
This little beauty is in the shop right now, and I am afraid there won't be any more like it because with my new full time job I am having to focus on some other projects. If you need it, best get over there:>)
How do you warm up the house for fall?
