Fall Inspiration: Quilts, Classic Decor & Crisps

I’m tired-high and mostly keeping up with my travel companions in London as we make memories in this wonderful city. In a few days, I’ll be home again where I intend to rest (perhaps for DAYS!) in our bedroom below with the quilted coverlets. Quilts are on my mind at the moment since admiring a pretty one in a bedroom of the home we’re renting.

I need to get a better photo so you can see the detail and color, but it’s truly a gorgeous quilt with a Scandinavian feel.

Classic & Inexpensive

I’m a big fan of neutral linens (big surprise!), and Mary Ann’s (Classic Casual Home) beautiful bedroom shared with us last fall is just my style!

Then she went and made me love it even more! Notice how she updated the quilt (below) which you can read about RIGHT HERE.

Speaking of Mary Ann and her love of quilts…look what she did with this special one from India for a fall tablescape!

As one of the sweet shining lights in blogland and a talented designer of classic, casual, and lovely interiors, Mary Ann stopped by last fall. She shared beautiful fall tablescape ideas in time for Thanksgiving, and I thought we could check in with her a year later!

Based in San Francisco, Mary Ann creates spaces that reflect her clients’ personalities by retaining items they already own while adding fresh appeal. On her blog, shes shares wonderful makeover stories, favorite finds, and lifestyle.

In terms of enjoying fall in SF, she says, “The summer fog finally recedes. It’s still warm enough to enjoy the outdoors during the day, and it’s cool and crisp in the evenings.”

The designer also loves autumn since it is the perfect time of year “to start enjoying candlelight indoors or early evening dinners outdoors at sunset.”

Beyond quilts, the design elements she uses in her home and for others which speak autumn to her include:

mums, sunflowers,

topiaries, terracotta pots, branches,


pinky-orange blooms,

pomegranates, and kumquates.

I love Mary Ann’s skillful strokes of simple elegance!

My favorite comfort food in fall is a crisp or cobbler, and Ina Garten shows us how to make a delicious apple crisp here:

Here’s a yummy comforting recipe from Ina perfect for fall:

This morning we began the day with a short stroll to peek at (the late) Freddie Mercury’s estate. Oh goodness, what a property and neighborhood in Kensington! While in the neighborhood, we may have run into Freddie’s life-long friend, Mary, to whom he bequeathed the manse! While we didn’t get to see the home’s interiors up close and personal, tonight, we were able to see them on the silver screen (think Versailles style!) within the bittersweet “Bohemian Rhapsody.” I loved seeing the movie in London, and it will be in USA theatres soon.

Here’s the trailer…

Peace to you right where you are.

    Hi Michele,
    Quilts are so awesome this time of year and while I love a white quilt, the colorful ones seem cozier! I hope you have a great time in London. Don’t let yourself get too tired though. You’re still in the mend, my friend!

    Travelling is tiring at the best of times. My bed is always calling me by the end of any trip, no matter how enjoyable. You’ll fall into that lovely bed once you get home and feel pure bliss.
    I find quilts too heavy, preferring down filled duvets. I do like the look though and have one on each bed that can be removed for sleeping, if desired.

      You’re absolutely right! I love the weight of a coverlet and prefer layering like you. Happy weekend, friend! xox
