Flickr Faves on Fridays: Bringing the Leaves Indoors

Once again, a flickr favorite came from Flickr member Saidos da Concha, who added them to our Fresh New Spaces Group. Blogger Concha has moved from Lisbon Portugal to Staffordshire England. She’s obviously finding some beautiful leaves around the countryside to bring into her English home, adding organic autumnal style. What I really like is that rather than going for the typical firey red and brilliant orange leaves we’re used to seeing in fall decorating, she included leaves that were still half-green and light yellow. I never would have thought of this:

Don’t you just want to plan a room around the colors in those leaves on the left side of the mantle? It’s such a beautiful color palette! I also love the way she’s tied in the sweet little gourds, the bird prints, and the books in this mantle arrangement. Simple clear glass vases let the leaves be the stars.

A master of tablescapes and shelf arranging, once again Concha has created a beautiful and fun composition here. The grahpics on the posters are crisp, more intricate little works of art are mixed in, stacks of books that could be total pulp (though I do spy some literary classics) add another layer, and a mustachioed rabbit and a fun little car top off the piles of books. It’s so much fun! I also love the way she tucked these leaves behing the sconce. They will cast interesting shadows at night when the lights are on.

If you’re struggling with ideas for your Thanksgiving decorations, why not take a look around at the leaves outside, grab a pair of pruners, and swipe a few?

    I think this is the second time I’ve seen a single branch of leaves placed inside a tiny vase (I’m not sure if I saw the other photo on your blog – it had single maple leaves in a bunch of beakers) and I must admit the idea looks rather stylish. It’s a step away from fancy and full-looking floral arrangements. It just goes to show that sometimes beauty lies in simplicity.
