North Carolina is beautiful, especially in the fall. I am always looking for ways to share the beauty of fall in the South with my family. A great way to spend an afternoon with your kids is to head over to Midland NC to Riverbend Farms. They have it all here at this farm....pumpkins, animals, hayride, playgrounds etc.. My favorite part is riding out on the hayride to pick your own pumpkins off the vine. Another great thing about North Carolina is the Great Smokey Mountains. We like to make a day trip to Tweetsie Railroad for some more fall fun. While on these trips, I use the time to reflect on the colors of fall and how I can use the foliage and colors to come up with some great Interior Design ideas for my clients. I will be making future posts on ways I used these inspirations to make some great designs that you can use in your own home for the season. Hope you are having a great Fall!
