THE WARM CAST that nature takes on as we shift into autumn is reflected in September’s guest room arrangement. Summer’s cool brights—pinks, purples, blues—are replaced by deep yellows and soft apricots, warm saffrons and rusted reds. Small, sturdy sunflowers in a rustic vessel anchor this arrangement, while balls of golden drumstick flower (craspedia), coneflower centers, and cranberryhued strawflower add punctuation and staying power. Miniature daisies (bellium) contribute a delightful airiness, preventing the arrangement from becoming too visually weighty.
