November is all about the end of the growing season – leaves have turned brown and bronze and are falling to the ground. So, this month, we celebrate Brown and Bronze as the Color of the Month #COTM for November.

I do have a posting coming up with holiday decorating ideas for Thanksgiving, but did want to include this gorgeous holiday tablescape. The combinations of textures and colors – rough and luxe – is very appealing, isn’t it?

The brown lacquer walls really bring this traditional library into a next level design.

And this… the combination of the dusty pink bench seat, with the tall brown walls – a really play on color, light, big and small.

It’s funny, because I hated brown for a long time. It probably had a lot to do with a certain scratchy brown dress that my Mom made me wear when I was in 5th grade. I couldn’t bring myself to wear the color brown for several decades.

I now realize just how flattering this color is. (Still hate the dress!)

  1. love! One of these days I’ll have to have a small dinner party to decorate a holiday table like that. In our house with 45 guests, we basically sling hash and everyone has to fend for themselves to get a bite before the food’s gone – lol. I put that stag lamp in a design once. It was a bit pricey but well worth it.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
