Autumn is upon us and that means the holidays are quickly approaching.  At the studio, this means decorating many homes and businesses for the festivities.  We completed our first installation this week.  The home is one of our regular clients.  It is a spectacular mansion, designed by the reknowned Julia Morgan, the female architect most famous for designing the Hearst Castle and hundreds of other buildings.  William Randolph Hearst, however, was her most prestigious and regular patrons.  This particular home is perched on one of San Francisco’s spectacular hills.

For the installation the client asked us to decorate the entranceway of the home with some fun Halloween elements which could be removed at the end of October to leave behind a feast of autumn.  The lead designer and company hung webbing, spiders and a gorgeous rose-hip wreath on the door while I created the cornucopia arrangements.  The result is fun and, now that Halloween is over, we’ll take away the silly stuff and leave behind a lovely installation of fall’s bounty.
