Do you know Michele from Hello Lovely? Michele and I are fellow midwesterners. I grew up in a small town in the midwest and connected with Michele through blogging. Ironically Michele lives not all that far from where I grew up. I have lived in California for 40+ (can you believe it?) years now, but I am a midwesterner at heart. Meet Michele I know you will love her and her beautiful blog.
Since I am an admirer of Cindy’s beautiful design work, creativity, and inspiring blog, it is deeply gratifying to be a guest today to share some of my world with you.
I’m Michele, author of Hello Lovely. I’m a writer, artist, and design freak with tranquil, unfussy, and airy style. (My husband and I renovated our fixer-upper, entirely ourselves, and I often share stories of its progress on my blog.)
While the rich, luscious colors of fall emerging in our neck of the woods (Midwest) are energizing, it’s the softer, quiet autumn lovely which resonates with me and feels most like home.
Even our Thanksgiving table tends to be hushed, serene, whispery light and inspired by Scandinavian restraint.

Does it even surprise you baby boo pumpkins are a favorite of mine? The sweet girl swathed in tulle above is at an age when pumpkins and fallen leaves dancing through the air is still magical…such childhood wonder is alive and well in my heart.
4. Simple warm white blooms: a pumpkin as a vase is even better!
Blush or warm white roses are hardly evocative of fall harvests and bountiful displays of colorful vegetation, yet they remain a fixture here even in fall, when the light is dappled and soft.

6. Cozy neutral accessories: layer on the nubby textures and lovely.
