Design The Essentials:

Autumn Upstate Weekend

As the weather begins to turn crisp and the lights shifts ever so slightly offering a warm glow and lengthening shadows; the only place I want to be is outdoors, in Upstate NY engulfing the blaze of foliage.  Apple picking, hiking, picnicking on rustic blanket with a glass of red wine and warming soup as I am bundled up in my favorite cozy fall sweater. This season is just bursting at the seams, begging us to get out in nature, frolic under bright blue skies below a canopy of colorful leaves, experience the landscape of earthy neutrals and bold color statements for as long as we can.  I swoon fall.
