I'm so lucky to have Michele as a friend.....she inspires me with her calm aura.....and even though it may seem like we are complete opposites....she is blonde and beautiful with a romantic sense about her and I'm all masculine and clumsy.....we've been connecting online for years!  She is going to share some fall inspiration with you today while I did the same for her readers......

Happy Fall, Design Indulgence fans!

I'm Michele, author of the decor inspiration blog
Hello Lovelyand I'm pumped (see what I did there?)
to bring you pumpkin spice-inspired fall
inspiration as a guest of my friend, Sherry.

It's easy to admire the organic, lovely,
and fresh approach with which Sherry
infuses her designs, and how they sing with an
under-baked and cozy-without-clutter vibe
(yep, I sure did steal "underbaked" from Tom Scheerer). 

Sherry is young at heart, and the resultant
buoyancy of spirit illumines her beautiful work.

Much of the interior design inspiration
I share on Hello Lovely features muted,
quiet neutrals, but I appreciate how
luscious, luminous color, like
pumpkin spice orange,
breathes with life, energy, and warmth.

Let's peek at inspiring design accented with
varying shades of this comforting autumnal hue,
and maybe you will decide your own decorating scheme
can be enlivened with a subtle dose of pumpkin spice.

and the space below? So chic it hurts.

You know that Thoreau quote "I'd rather have
a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be
crowded on a velvet cushion?" 

Isn't a pumpkin-spice-hued velvet cushion...like,
the wisest compromise that solves everything?

I created the edgy, urban, raw painting below,
and Melissa James placed it in a sitting area
with a pumpkin-spice Midcentury chair.
(That's Flossie in the pic...a rescue all the way

Do you like the suggestion of pumpkin spice
which a richly patina-ed wood can add?

Thanks Michele!  I feel all cozy now until I walk outside and it is a 1000 degrees and I start cussing:)
