Its mid October and finally feeling like fall.
I styled this elegant center entrance colonial during the summer for
HomeGoods and these are the professional photos from the shoot.
White lanterns, instead of the traditional black,
make a unique statement with faux and real pumpkins.
The porch was cozy and cheery with all the white and orange.
My front porch is very small but I have mums, pumpkins
and a wreath to create a seasonal entryway.
You can spy the vintage cast iron urn I used in the HomeGoods shoot in the first photo
of this blog post. Birch logs filled the urn for the shoot.
Classic urns are wonderful for decorating most any season outdoors.
Use your imagination! I even use my urns indoors sometimes...
A kitchen display for apples was Matthew Mead's great idea.
In fact he is full of innovative ideas, and you can feast your eyes on the amazing
fall decorating ideas he has in the latest issue of his FINISH magazine.

Don't miss this issue, its truly filled to the brim with great and inexpensive decorating ideas for fall.
He also reveals my Design studio at my home in this issue of FINISH.
A funny back story is that I didn't realize he was going to shoot ME, using the sprayer, and there I was on this hot summer day in my understated Bermuda shorts and my son's tshirt.
I figured we would be moving and lugging props so I dressed like a bum.
Well its all right there in the latest issue. Sometimes you just gotta roll with it.
