So~o~o . . .
On Crooked Creektt I'm embracing my Traditional Roots
to bring you a Fanfare of Autumnal Hues!
yellow and gold,
burnt orange and red
combined with khaki and cream
grounded with brown and black
are the amazing shades of Autumn chosen this year to highlight our home decor.
Heading off this festive fanfare
is the built~in china cabinet in On Crooked Creektt's Dining Room.
Keeping the dinnerware, platters and urns
in a consistent creamy ivory and white color palette
allows the hues of the Autumnal Season to be accentuated.
I emptied the built~in china cabinet of the Bordallo Pinheiro Collection.
(See Interlude In Green for the before here.)
I began filling the china cabinet
using favorite pieces from my collections
that were in keeping with this year's color palette.
The left side completed,
I began styling the right side of the cabinet.
I chose crisp and subtle Autumnal hues against the dark mahogany cabinetry.
A simplistic, yet symmetrical, arrangement quite pleasing to the eye.
I followed an inspirational photo from my resource file
of a counter top vignette styled by Nell Hill's
for the counter top beneath the china cabinet.
This is the first time my trio of lidded pottery jars
has left On Crooked Creektt's Kitchen counters!
My vignette includes a vase of faux Gingersnap Roses
and the addition of a bowl of faux pears
combined with two red guest towels.
