Hello there. I am Lelanie Slater from of Beauty and Love. I am a South African interior designer & decorator, magazine web editor, writer and blogger. I will be keeping you company in the Monday morning slot while Tina is taking some time off.
Over on my little blog, I love to chat about interior design, beautiful things, more to life, fun, happiness and joy. I often share practical interior design tips and ideas with my readers and I enjoy delving into what’s new, unique and lovely on the interior design front. I hope that I can share some of this with you during my time here at English Muse.
Here in the Southern hemisphere the weather has slowly been changing. The days are becoming shorter and nights a tad longer. Nature is turning inwards. The time for rest is near. Human beings also feel this calling. Colder temperatures means more time spent indoors- nesting, cuddling and swaddling are at the order of the day. Autumn is a beautiful time. Often considered spring’s ugly sister, we tend to neglect and ignore this stunning time of year. Yet, what is not to love?
Nature is exploding with colour and inspiration. Rich, warm colours abound. Trees are adorned in Purple, Orange, Magenta, Ochre, Fuchsia and Burgundy. Texture is everywhere, from dry bark, to forgotten twigs. Why not channel these beautiful colours and elements for the home?
What do you think of these autumn inspired hues? Do you embrace this season? How do you warm up your nest for the colder months?
I’d love to hear your tricks and tips.
