Interior Design is heading Outdoors!

There is nothing like Fall in the South! Summers sweltering tempertures are finally starting to subside and the time has arrived to move your entertaining outdoors.  Now is the time to think about creating those special outside places. Interior design is heading to the exterior.       
Bunny Williams

The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life. ~P.D. James

Southern Living

No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face.
~John Donne

A woodland in full color is awesome as a forest fire, in magnitude at least, but a single tree is like a dancing tongue of flame to warm the heart. ~Hal Borland

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
~George Cooper, "October's Party"

By all these lovely tokens September days are here, With summer's best of weather And autumn's best of cheer. Helen Hunt Jackson

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn. ~Elizabeth Lawrence

Southern Savy Style

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. ~Stanley Horowitz

Youth is like spring, an over praised season more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits. ~Samuel Butler

I hope these pictures will give you some inspiration to take your interior outside. Grab a glass of wine and go enjoy the beautiful colors mother nature has to offer while you are surrounded by the wonderful brisk air of Fall!
