Shades of gray

Yes...change is in the air...two weeks ago it was still summer...warm, sunny days, clear nights...but in the blink of an eye...the temperature is cooler...there is fog and dew in the morning...and the rain is returning...tomorrow is the first day of autumn...

Suddenly the summer d├ęcor of the house was out of place...time to change it up...

Seems like most creative types decorate their mantel according to the season...I have no mantel but rather a trio of bookcases/shelves in my dining room that I change out the display according to whim...my current whim is shades of gray...and not just any gray...but the aged patina of galvanized metal gray...






I love galvanized metal...the patina is so textured... hardworking and sturdy.  With the change of seasons, I always think of the fading blooms of a summer garden...and the striking colors of leaves as they turn... preparations for the winter ahead...all of these thoughts spurred my creative spin...
































Though the galvanized gray takes center stage, hues of rust and ochre play a role...dried poppy stems from my garden and pressed tree leaves add a touch of color...balls of twine and a roll of vintage woven wallpaper liner add texture...and old metal type communicates the overall vibe...
Weathered texture, vintage tones, well-loved metal...my favorite shades of gray...
Linking up to Funky Junk Interiors Saturday Nite Party...always a favorite...
and to Knick of Time Tuesday Party...another favorite...

worth a look...
