It’s October tomorrow, which means my ‘styling the seasons’ post couldn’t be any more last minute. Aside from having a little fun with styling, I find it such a good opportunity to talk to my eldest son about seasons, changes, and I so welcome his input. I love asking him what he thinks should go where and what he likes about it.
Most people pile on the pounds in the winter and get leaner in the summer, but not me. Summer is too full of BBQs, picnics, impromptu lunch dates, late nights, days out, ice creams and outings that last longer than planned to remain virtuous all of the time. However, when autumn and winter rolls around I crave hearty stews, soup (like this tasty one) and lots of veggies, and I find it easier to eat well. Apart from Christmas, of course.
This ‘styling the seasons’ post is dedicated to humble, belly warming soup that I would not be without this September, or any September for that matter. It’s so nourishing, and I love having it for lunch or supper. Sometimes both!
I always gravitate towards natural textures and colours, and I love the presence of nature in my home. We seem to be hoarding pincecones and I thought it was high time I made something with them. I also love having candles lit during the day when the weather turns – there is something so soothing about it.
So, without further ado – goodbye September and hello October!

Ah I love this Esther, your home always looks so gorgeous. Autumn is my favourite season for styling. x
Thanks Katie! I’m with you there – I love styling for Autumn. The colours are wonderful xx
Oh, this is so beautiful and sums up Autumn perfectly. I love all of the textures you have used and the soft, muted colours. I’m also loving the look of your dining table and bench – I want to see more! xx
Thanks Katy! Such fun to take part xx
