Pop A Little Fall On Your Walls


While perusing blog land with my morning cup of coffee I opened one of my emailed blogs. It was from the blog for Phoebe Howard (my design idol). They had just changed up some vignettes in her shop, Max & Company for Fall.


I was taken with the art on the walls done by P.Allen Smith, well known master gardener!! He apparently is also a wonderful artist. He portrays the bounty  from the garden. Since it is fall Ms. Howard is using some of his pieces portraying pumpkins,squash and tomatoes on the vine.


Here is a sampling………..





I love this pumpkin!! Mr. P.Allen Smith is more in tuned to his garden produce than just planting and harvesting. He obviously sees the beauty in every curve of this pumpkin. Here is how Ms. Howard chose to use it in a room……





Next is my favorite!! The Squash!!………





I love this!! Wouldn’t this be fantastic in a kitchen or dining room? Here it is in Ms. Howard's shop…….














This was not shown in a room setting on her blog, but I had to show it!!! Where would you put this lovely piece?!!


I love the simple black frames and the size of each piece. I think they would make a wonderful statement in a room.


Just another Fall touch for you to think about!!

I knew that he painted...he is my favorite garden designer and in my opinion, one of the most talented. These are wonderful! I would love something like this in my kichen. Have a great day.(-:

Mr. Smith is an amazing person, the male Martha Stewart. Seems he gardens,paints, cooks and decorates. Good for him. Thanks for sharing. Richard from My Old Historic House.

Being a fellow Phoebe Howard fan...I love everything here. These would be stunning as a grouping in a large kitchen or breakfast room....love the colors, hes a talented artist. Thank for more pretty fall inspiration...this is one season I never tire of (though I would be thrilled to skip right over winter)....
