    R – you are way too cute – dont worry – I understand on the 3 posts on Friday – for me too, somethings just could not wait until Monday too:-)


  • Sarah – thank you! Your ideas for Fall sound lovely, especially the magenta velvet blanket

    Felicity! Lovely to hear from you, and yes, had made the questionable decision to publish 3 posts on Friday, when most had signed off for the weekend and so a few lovely things got buried under the “happy weekend” post, including this one, which is a shame, as normally do not prefer deep reds and blues and yet, am drawn in when looking at these images . . Thanks so much for adding to the comment appreciation – you’re lovely xoxo

    Tanya – thanks so much – always wonderful when a collection of images work together beautifully . . .

    Hope everyone is having a great week,

  • you always find the most amazing images that go so perfectly together!

    When Fall arrives each year, I find that I’m quite drawn to jewel toned accessories. This post is perfect inspiration — I’m thinking some beautiful, richly colored flowers, bringing out my magenta velvet blanket (same color as the magenta pillow in your pic) and my favorite, modern, copper vase.



  • I love the richness of the Red, and that dress is very lovely.

    Enjoy your weekend


  • There was an article on jewel tones in an old issue of Domino I came across recently. I guess its just one of those things that will never go out of style.

    I especially have an affinity for purple velour.



  • Autumn colors are by far my favorites; in the forest, fields, markets, and on people. I love the deep reds, burnt oranges, burgundies and saturated violets best. Thank you for the inspiration.

  • love the rich and vibrant colours


  • beautiful collection of photos. love all of them. colours are just perfect…

  • I’m absolutely in love with fall jewel tones. Frankly, I look awful in those spring/summer colors. Jewel tones are my thing. So rich… And I so love that blue dress!
