Seeing the trees bare and feeling the bitter chill of the morning frost has shocked us out of Autumn and straight into winter, although we have a few weeks before we fully enter the season it isn’t hard to feel its presence in the iced over cars and your breath floating in the air. Whatever the weather, it is time to start preparing for the winter to come, but most importantly saying farewell to the Autumn of 2016.[caption id="attachment_896" align="aligncenter" width="6000"] Bye-bye Autumn[/caption]
It has been an exciting autumn for us at Crown French Furniture with a vast increase in our collections, see our Halloween blog “Carving Pumpkins” for a few of our additions! Not only this but we have begun our Christmas celebrations, we have to start early to ensure we can have everything available to our customers before it’s mid-December and everyone’s in a Christmasy panic.[caption id="attachment_897" align="aligncenter" width="960"] Some of our beautiful Christmas accessories![/caption]
Is it out with the autumnal colours though? I don’t think so, the Winter colour schemes are fairly simple and can be created in small additions, such as adding pale white candles to give a cooler atmosphere, and so the autumnal colour scheme can live on within this, besides, it would be a shame to move on from such a beautiful season so abruptly.[caption id="attachment_852" align="aligncenter" width="2265"] Our Sophia bed with an autumnal theme[/caption]
As always we lose a great deal of the greenery around this time of year and although we do get to see the spectacular colours of the leaves and the trees we are left with bare trunks and lonely looking branches. The colours of our towns and cities change dramatically and we are often without greens, our winter nights have a cold and moody backdrop, which is not always a bad thing! It’s all part of the changing seasons, but for now, enjoy the multitude of colours and the brightness of the streets![caption id="attachment_898" align="aligncenter" width="400"] May be seeing more of these fox-gloves in the coming months![/caption]
There’s way too much to be happy about in the Winter time to spend time missing Autumn, but at the end of it all, it has been a spectacular season and hopefully we can bring the same delight to our customers in the coming months![caption id="attachment_899" align="aligncenter" width="5616"] Looking forward to this ... fingers crossed.[/caption]
