What does November mean to you? Any colours, ideas or memories that come to mind? Styling the Seasons covers exactly that; created by Katy and Charlotte (two ladies I’m always hugely inspired by) with the aim to reflect more on the change of seasons and showcase them in our homes, it’s a fab concept.
I have very limited space in my home, so the most obvious surface for me to change was this pinboard. It’s been hanging in my room for ages; covered in photos, cinema tickets, random letters from friends etc. I decided to give it a bit of a tidy up for November. I wanted to start Styling the Seasons with something personal and every item chosen evokes a memory or feeling for me.
You may have spied on my Pinterest page that I love foxes; they’re beautiful animals that often get negative press. I also think their colours match the autumnal vibes of this month so it was the perfect excuse to include a couple of fox items. The colour of the pom poms were chosen to match for this reason, and I love the warmth of this time of year.
November for me holds a lot of special memories; a couple of life changing moments have happened in this month over the years, so this is really where the styling began. It’s the month Stuart and I met, so I’ve added in cinema tickets from our second date as well as a couple of photobooth photos that make me smile. The photo of me with my Mum and Dad is there to remind me that no matter what happens, we always have a lot of love, support and friendship for each other.
Finally, the ‘Life’s an adventure’ postcard represents an ongoing work change, where I’m travelling a lot more. It’s pretty tiring but a good step forward in my career so worth remembering that adventure is positive. We’re also going to Edinburgh at the end of the month – so excited!
