Finding inspiration in non-traditional colors of Fall

Hello all! I hope this new school year—Autumn’s in the air—pre-holiday season is going well at your place!


It’s been a little crazy-busy at mine. Honestly? I’m still trying to decide how to share some of it with you… because some of it’s really good stuff. But it’s not “easy” stuff, and I want to do it justice. Soon, I hope.


But for now, because I desperately needed a few minutes of creative quiet time, I put together an inspiration board for you using a color palette I recently proposed for a project in the Mossy Creek historic district (aka our old downtown). These are certainly not my go-to Autumn colors, but the more time I spent with them, the more I thought they’d make a really great seasonal tablescape.


… And since there’s no tablescaping time at My Place this week …



If YOU have time to tablescape using these inspiration colors, be sure to send me your post and I’ll link it up here!


There’s a story (a potential post!) behind every one of these photos. Do you have a favorite?


If you’ll leave a comment and tell me which one catches your eye, perhaps we’ll pick up there next time.


Pssst… Make the most of these last few days of September, okay?

  1. So many choices! Well, that bed in the top right corner sure looks inviting, but I am also continuously drawn to the grey/black/yellow, so that bottom left corner strikes me as handsome too. 🙂 Very nice collage, Susan. It’s good to hear from you, and I hope you’re doing well.

  2. Hi, Susan! Top row, second from left as I view the screen. It appears this might be a very relaxing spot for enjoying a cup of tea or coffee with friends.

    Enjoying September here! It has gone by much too quickly!

  3. So beautiful! What a treasure trove for our eyes. And such truth here: “There’s a story (a potential post!) behind every one of these photos.” The most intriguing to me is the embroidered Lincoln quote….

  4. I love all the photos but I will have to pick the first one. The hanging Victorian light fixture because I love Victorian.

  5. Love the colors and the pictures. Happy Fall. I have to say I like the picture of the porch. I love porches!
