MaryAnne's Outside-In Fall Fantasy

(Welcome to MaryAnne P, who's trying out for a spot on our editorial team. Enjoy!)

Envision a modern yet rustic retreat, elements of the season colouring the space through selective, seductive accessories. I can see myself spending an awful lot of time there, curled up with a book and a cat and a calm sense that I have somehow slowed the hands of time.

TOP ROW

1 To quote Liz Lemon, "I want to go to there."
2 Deeeep breath…It's easy to relax with this gorgeous organic lavender eye-pillow by adorAdormi, made using salvaged high-end upholstery fabrics and natural, unbleached cotton.
3 These long burning, Canadian made beeswax candles will encourage you to linger!
4 I just love Garant's Enviro Eden Collection planters, shown here in Goldenrod. These biodegradable containers provide the perfect punctuation of colour, and plants will surely approve!
5 Woven from natural Abacá fibre, the Croissant Sofa by Phillipine designer Kenneth Cobonpue is as cozy as it is stunning.

6 The onset of fall and an impending winter has upped my fire-cravings. EcoSmart Fire's relaxation friendly Fire+ Ice Coffee Table is looking very appealing right about now. Anyone know how to make my cats less interested in open flames and more interested in cuddling?
7 There is something so pure and so beautiful about these hand-worked wood stumps. There is also something very expensive about them. Perhaps worth it, or at least worth being inspired by.
8 A little mood music? A little music station. Woodtec has you covered with a huge array of ab-fab, hand crafted wooden docking stations.
9 If the table fire isn't keeping you quite toasty enough, snuggle into a fair trade Alpaca throw from Seven Hopes United to feel warm and fuzzy.
10 Classically styled stemware, expertly crafted from recycled glass by NYC Wine Glass Co. Simple, sophisticated, sustainable. As for what to put in it... Bonterra's organically produced 2006 Syrah is hailed as an excellent choice when paired with slowing down and taking it easy.

Thanks, MaryAnne!
