Breakfast Style: The Morning Chill

One of the many wonderful elements about autumn season that I love is that, it’s not exactly too cold, at least for most— it’s not winter. There’s that in-between period of a tolerable cool, calm, and collected climate, all of which upholds each other in balance, like a bedspring to a mattress.

The weather starts with joyful fluffs of sunshine, you know, those wonderful leftover bursts from the summer. The leaves either spiral in the wind (softly hitting the ground) like a feather dancing in slow motion, or like swift raindrops and brisk winds as the bed sheet. But, there’s also moments when breezes hit your face and feel like they’re wrapped in a chilled duvet.

That’s also why I love this season so much. The leaves are changing colours, and the somewhat volatile climate transitioning into a steady coolness makes for a lovely fireside evening. Although, in our case, it was an early morning breakfast starter (raspberries with Devonshire cream) followed by checking upcoming holiday dates and confirmations. Here's the tablescape that I created for such a time as this.   

For the breakfast table, I used lively and fun eco-prints from the Gudrun Sjödén home collection. These are some my favourites, because of the unique blending that can be done with the printed pieces. Throughout the homeware collection, there are bold neutrals paired with stripes and abstract florals that can be easily carried into other seasons.

The kitchen towels were a big hit at our table, as well as the place mats. The jungle theme that was constant in the autumn collection continued within more interior pieces, like the elephant embroidered cushion. I chose to add loose leaves on the table for an artsy autumn touch. Then, I accented the colourful palette with plum purple, olive green, and rustic orange. 

If you happen to be near a store, check out the new line of pottery by Gudrun, there are plenty of pleasing patterns to liven up any kitchen.


What do you think of these Gudrun Sjödén pieces? Are you looking forward to entertaining soon?

  10. These textiles really help you to set quite a "happy" looking table. I can definitely see why they're a hit. I feel much the same way about autumn as you Madison. I kind of wish it would stick around longer as winter is not my favorite season.

    Yes fall is my favorite season for all these reasons and more. And breakfast is my favorite meal to go out for, but find I do not this as much since moving back to NY from Seattle.

  23. Wow Madison you described the autumn like a poet. I wish I had your writing skills. The Gudrun Sjöden pieces look amazing. I wish we had the new pottery line over here too. Would love to check it out. Wir haben hier zwar einen Laden, der ein paar Sachen führt, aber nur ein paar Kleider. So schön dekorieren wie du, kann ich leider auch nicht. Have einen wunderschönen Dienstag :D
