The Ultimate Autumn Look

by: Mary Jane Vaughn Designs

As we sadly say goodbye to summer, we turn to the faded, soft and muted colours of autumn.

We love the textures and gentle shapes: berries, grey muted foliage and hydrangeas in gentle tones of blue, pink and green that blend into each other, reflecting the season.  Designers always say that mixing textures brings out the best, and nothing is truer than in the Autumn: shiny berries, opaque leaves, varying shades of hydrangeas and, to add to the textures, random clematis and ivy here and there.  We have placed them on a moss runner and added in moss spheres, but have chosen bronze vases and added silver and glass accessories on the table. These images were taken in the terrace room at Chandos House by our favourite photographer Rebecca Portsmouth.
