Styling the Seasons + Makelight | November Winner!

Hello, last day of November. How did you get here so fast? I know I sound like a broken record, but honestly this year is just flying past. If November is anything to go by, 2016 will be here in a blink. I'm determined to savour each moment though - whether that means breathing in the cold crisp air as I wander around London, or giving myself permission to light every.single.candle in our home on nights in. (Hygge, yes?) As you may recall, this month's Styling the Seasons, was a super special one, as Katy and Charlotte joined forces with the lovely Emily Quinton at Makelight. The prompt for November was to style up a seasonal flat lay. And, since I assist Emily in her gorgeous Makelight studio, I was delighted to join Katy, Charlotte and Emily in picking a winner - not that it was an easy decision to make! There were so many amazing flat lays on instagram (take a peek at the full #STSxMakelight feed here), and also on some lovely blogs (see the pinterest board of all these here).

In the end though, we needed to pick one winner - and that winner is Katie from The Vintage House That Could. We all agreed that Katie's flatlay, incorporating sweet copper fairy lights, velvet and delicate dried flowers was so beautiful and perfectly fitting for November. 

Here's a peek at Katie's seasonal flat lay...
