Cross Country Inspiration

imageLast year, my brother got married in wine country in October. Growing up in the midwest, an outdoor ceremony in October could mean a threat of snow! Even here on the East Coast, we get a lot of cool, wet weather that can dampen the excitement (pun fully intended!). As you can imagine, packing for 90° was a bit of a mind bender!

imageMaking my first trip to California was exciting for so many reasons, not the least of which was watching my brother marry his beautiful bride! The creative side of me was enthralled with all of the fall decor that greeted us at every turn. My sister-in-law did an incredible job complementing the natural beauty with her floral and design choices. I mean, look at this bouquet (and her delicious signature drink)!

imageIf you caught our post when we talked about non-traditional fall color palettes, I could have done a whole separate section on Californian Fall. The tans, browns and grays provided by the scenery are punctuated with pops of green and deep oranges. It reminded me of the stereotypical Californian vibe, stylish and polished, but also relaxed and casual. Each venue and winery we went to was stunning, but maintained a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere.

This post has me thinking. What look do people see when they come to my neck of the woods? How about my home back in the midwest? How would you describe the style your region uses when decorating? What colors, what feelings, what motifs do people use?
