Amazing Shades of Autumn. . .

The amazing shades of Autumn
continue to arrived On Crooked Creektt!

I completed the Autumnal decor in the Entertainment Center 
in perfect timing to capture all the brilliance of the last few days of Summer.



I was able to take the Entertainment Center from Summer~to~Autumn,
with the addition of a few simplistic changes.
(To view the interior shelves of the Entertainment Center see Traditional Hues. . .here.)


Beginning at the top,
I intermingled faux berry pics with ivy and magnolia leaf garlands.




Next,
I added two white crackle pumpkins beside the lidded white urns.




Then,
I continued with the same faux greenery along the top 
until I was satisfied with the placement on the opposite side.

Now,
to tackle my most challenging area On Crooked Creektt's upper level. . .
hiding the humongous stereo speakers!!!



"Mr, Ed" just shakes his head when I go on the rampage and states,
"It is an Entertainment Center, dear."




I'm sure he's admiring the over sized television for the space 
and doesn't see what's in my mind's eye.

So~o~o . . .
try as I may,
I'll do my best to direct my attention to the upper shelf!







I am enjoying the continuation of these amazing shades of Autumn. . .


sage green,
           yellow and gold,
                         burnt orange and red
                                           combined with khaki and cream 
                                                       grounded with brown and black.



On Crooked Creektt,
we've almost come "full circle" in the upper level Autumnal decor changes.




All that's left are a few tabletop Vignettes. . .
oh, yes. . .and something new to share with you, too!!!



Until next time. . .



On Crooked Creektt will be joining

Hi Pat!
Everything looks so pretty...I love that chippy old window! I'm hoping to get some Fall decor out next week after the show. Oh, but guess what I found at Marshalls yesterday...a grey pumpkin! I'm hoping to get a few pretty velvet ones (not sure what color) to mix with it!

Pat, you are on a roll with your Fall decor! What a beautiful way to hide the stereo speakers. All of your accents are just lovely! I love how you bring all of your elements together.

Great collection of old oil lamps, and I love the old window on top. Your are ready for the beginning of Autumn next week! What a great centerpiece for your living room.

Your transition from summer to fall looks wonderful! That window piece adds great visual interest and you've cozied up the whole entertainment unit beautifully!
