When the temperature drops into the 50s in New York City (where I grew up), autumn is welcomed with really chic sweaters.
When the temperature dips into the 60s in Virginia (where I now live), fall’s arrival is heralded by displays of pumpkins and gourds.
When the temperature slides into the 70s in Los Angeles (where I was last week), the change of season is greeted with fire!
Residents in every part of town were hauling home cords of wood for their fireplaces. My son and his friends celebrated with a bonfire on the beach. And, in every backyard and restaurant patio, firepits were burning brightly.
And, once autumn has arrived, Halloween can’t be far behind. Window displays along Abbot Kinney Blvd. were ablaze with SoCal (southern California) flair--and lanterns.
One of my favorite windows was lit with Dutch designer, Tord Boontje’s chandeliers.
Famous for his amazing paper cuttings, Tord also has a line of lighting with Swarovski crystals. You can take a peek at these dazzling designs at Studio Tord Boontje (Slick on projects.)
Many store displays have Day of The Dead Mexican themes.
Others exhibit sassy style.
And a few aim for tradition with fuzzy spiders!
