Euro Inspired Autumn Decor Inspiration & Quiet Fall Moments

Euro Inspired Autumn Decor Inspiration & Quiet Fall Moments is a whisper-y love letter to designers, stylists, and poets who inspire us to slow down. True, I may occasionally have my head in autumn clouds, yet I like to think a single image of beauty, viewed at just the right moment may spark an idea, shift a negative thought pattern, ignite bliss molecules, or heal an ache from a day gone wrong.

Euro Inspired Autumn Decor Inspiration & Quiet Fall Moments

Celia’s soft side of autumn (below) is a perfect example of a poetic and soulful vignette which shines rather than shows off…so inspiring.

European Country Whites & Neutrals

You may notice these collected moments do not hail exclusively from Europe; nor do they all employ the usual suspects of pumpkins and fallen leaves.

Instead, there’s a golden thread of timeless tranquility suggestive of European sensibilities running through them in this season of #cozyondown.

Jewel Tones & Elegant Vibrancy

How do you like your fall pumpkins anyway?

(a.) In a cake? (b.) A luscious Pie? (c.) Savory soup? (BTW, have you seen this new title by Drew Smith, SOUPOLOGY (Rizzoli, 2020) yet!?!) You’ll learn to master 6 broths which can be turned into 60 soups!

Fall Kitchen Decor Inspiration

Pumpkin cake? Bacon? Clearly, it’s dinner time, and I’ll soon scurry to the kitchen.

Try this delicious fall recipe for Pear Apple Crumble from Hello Lovely Studio for your next dessert or autumn get together!

While our kitchen has a farm sink, crystal chandelier, and subway tile…decor inspiration from deVOL gets the mind revving and imagining an Aga or a forest-lovely rich shade for walls like this:

Is a quieter, more tender green your cup o’ tea?

One of Hello Lovely’s followers on FB (you should totes follow me…tons of humor!) said she made a corn cob wreath like the one above and watched squirrels leaping to her front door to feast.

Oh, I love me some hungry-for-corn-Michael-Jordan-squirrels…sounds messy, entertaining, and wild.

Speaking of wildly beautiful messes…I’m always inspired by Kymberley’s gorgeous work with its rustic edgy organic goodness.

Outdoor Fall Dining

In spite of so many inspiring tablescapes, I have never orchestrated an outdoor fall party…it’s a romantic prospect though considering how easy Gwen Moss makes it look, oui?

What say ye about the green background of the quotes in this post? It’s Farrow & Ball’s Smoke Green (F&B samples can now be snapped up for 8 bucks!). This color exploded on my radar the moment I glimpsed Charlotte’s freshened kitchen cabinets in her French farmhouse below:

Vivi et Margot…Farrow & Ball Smoke Green painted kitchen cabinets by Neptune.

Can you EVEN get over the warmth of old reclaimed earthy cognac tile magic with the sophistication of this weathered and slightly mysterious green? See my story with glorious dark greens right HERE and sage green HERE.

If you have yet to discover French homewares at Vivi et Margot…your socks are about to be rocked, pumpkin.

Fall Decor Finds

If you follow Good Life of Design on FB, then you may have seen the happiest fall wreath on the planet gracing her front door.

Gracious host and talented interior designer, Kathy, shared her Williams-Sonoma find and encouraged us to get this look as well.

    Michele, I think you are the one that loved Barn and Willow for curtains and roman shades.I cannot locate them on Etsy. How can I find them.
    Thanks, Bebe

    Michele,
    Of the many blogs I read, I find yours to be the most beautiful, lovely, and stimulating. I’ve seen so many “fixer uppers” and DIY’s that I grow weary of them, and oftentimes just enjoy gazing at beautiful creations. Your photos provide that escape for me. I also appreciate the wonderful thoughts included, whether yours or quoted from someone else. They always seem to fill a need for reflection, humor, or inner peace. One of the readings today at Mass was Philippians 4:6-9. It so reminded me of you. You are lovely, indeed!

      What a blessing to receive from a friend on this balmy, heavenly autumn day – thank you for your uplifting words, for bring the Word, and for taking the time to add to the beauty here. I am reminded that Eden is right under my nose – oh that I would more often have eyes to see its paradise. xox

    I love euro desserts and designs. Most European restaurants have a design like this.
