It’s hot in Denver! Like the kind of dry heat that irritates me because the calendar rolled into September and the leaves began to change colors. The challenge is how to transition to fall when it’s 95 degree’s outside.
transition to fall
We don’t even have pumpkins yet in Colorado. So I have to get creative with a late summer and fall decor combo. One of the easiest ways to transition to fall (or any season) is to pair elements. Not the climate type of elements, but with wood, metal, and greenery. Hands down, these elelments are my favorite combination to use in decor.
If I could only take 3 decor items to an empty house on an island, this market basket would be at the top of the list. What are your year-round decor staples?
Fresh cut flowers or branches add a touch of the outdoors. I know this is common sense, but how many of us take advantage of the branches and flowers right in our yards?
Mint and herbs are great additions to the kitchen when the temperatures drop. I plan to pair the green with pumpkins in the weeks ahead.

When I shared my favorite craft earlier this summer I had no idea how much I could make with a bag of concrete. The trivet above is one of the many trivets, trays and mini pavers I made. What I love about cement is it’s a year round decor staple. It adds an earthy, gritty texture to just about anything in my house!
I am obsessed with boxwood and grapevines. It was one of the first posts after this happened to my blog. Like these would be my second and third item if I could only take three decor items to that island with the empty house. Boxwood, real or fake, is flexible enough to add to the decor for all the seasons. It’s an equal opportunity decor necessity.
