Styling the Seasons: July

There’s nothing like leaving things until the last minute, and I’m absolutely squeaking in under the wire on the last day of the month with my post for July’s Styling the Seasons. One of these days I’ll post on the first of the month (unlikely). : Styling the Seasons, by Apartment Apothecary and Lotts and Lots : “Reflect the change of seasons and show those changes in your own home, by styling any surface (shelf, dining table, mantelpiece) with something you like to reflect the new month and what it means to you” When we finally made it to the…
