Glenda,
I love rust. It's finding it's place once again. I think firstly in it's patina. In this post, you have inspired subtle approach of the color with such varied style.
Beautiful.

Never has "rust" been presented more beautifully! I just want to linger here for awhile...

flowers on my table said...

Hi Glenda, you have excelled yourself on this post, I think! I was salivating from that first most atmospheric image to the last. You would easily know that you were in fashion, as you have such an eye for detail and texture. Those copper pans glistening in the dim light, made me say oooh out loud! Wonderful, thanks for sharing! I want to light the fire and candles now! Have a happy Halloween, love Linda x

Glenda,

I don't know how you do it! So many gorgeous images to ooh and ahh at. I adore the mirror above the fireplace, the second to the last image with those slipcovered sofas and the urn in the last image.

Thanks so much for sharing.

Tou have hit the perfect tones. I enjoy the muted versions of this color family, and am so drawn to it in fall. I can hardly tear myself away! Thanks so much! I would never see these beautiful rooms and items anywhere else.

Such gorgeous vignettes. So rich and warm. I'm in love with the patina of crusty, rusted iron. This color palette is similar to what I have used in my own home. Have a lovely weekend. XO, Mona
