I’m sad to see most of the leaves gone from the trees. This picture captures the glorious palette that Autumn brings for just a few weeks for the year!

Color Me: Clinging to Fall
Centered around the table, the most magical design stage, Thanksgiving has to be my favorite holiday to design. With a color palette that takes you through a spectrum of whites, oranges, browns, green and reds, Thanksgiving presents a world of opportunities when scheming up the perfect feel for your gatherings. Here are some of my favorite looks for this warm and wonderful season.

If you have kids, you know they change their minds about their Halloween costume every other day. And then it’s the week before Halloween and you’ve got nothing to show for a costume. Before you head out to the big box stores at the eleventh hour and scoop up a lumpy, sparkly polyester thing off the floor, consider these last minute options:

You can never go wrong with an old sheet, à la Beeltejuice. Just make sure not to use your designer sheets!
For a windy day costume, all you need is wire, an inside-out umbrella, and a great story to pull it together. This one is definitely going in the Halloween files for future use.

This Andy Warhol costume is so clever; it has to be one of my favorites for this Halloween! There are more DIY costumes over on Oh Happy Day that will surely make you smile.

I had a blast styling the props and wardrobe for a client this week! All of the photography was shot in black and white, so I snapped some behind the scenes shots with the same feel. What do you think the shoot was for?

Majorelle Garden in Marrakech [All images via Vecco on Pinterest]
If you were to visit the Majorelle Garden in Marrakech, Morocco, you would most definitely come away experiencing a most clear and intense shade of blue. The French artist Jacques Majorelle designed the botanical garden in 1924 and painted the garden walls, fountains and villa a shade of blue he trademarked after himself. The history of the color, however, is deeply entwined with artisan culture throughout North Africa, reaching as far back as the 17th century. If you’re looking to give your space a Moroccan flair, a swath of Majorelle blue will do the trick!
