Chai Tea Latte Decor

Don't ask me why, but I wait until autumn to indulge in Panera Bread's hot Chai Tea Latte. It tastes like liquid pumpkin pie to me. Yum!! I was thinking as I gulped, guzzled, sipped my CTL, that if I enjoy the drink so much, why not decorate using it as an inspiration? Well,  here goes. Do you like Chai Tea Latte? Do you like the pumpkin-cinnamon decor? It screams, "Autumn!"

I love a subtle pumpkin color and your images reflect that perfectly, especially the first two!

Have a great week, Janean!!

Love the vintage kitchen bench. Gorgeous. It's a classic look isnt it?

Tammy said...

Yummy! I could see a room inspired by that. So rich, warm and cozy. Just kind of makes you want to slow down and enjoy life a little bit.

very fall...

Janean,

I thought I was the only one who thought that. Thomas once asked me what my chai tea latte tasted like and I replied: Autumn! Since it's my favorite season I adore the decor. I'm trying to figure out what is in the large white tub in the 4th photo.

Your Friend,
Deborah

Hi Janean! And I'm afraid I have to say "Nope, not so much!" I did love those 2nd and 4th pics down, but the rest just don't do it for me. I've never been an orange person, and especially not in my home. Give me softer tones of reds, greens, blues, yellows, and I'm a happy girl!

Hope all is well, Becky

Janean-Oh...bottle me up some of that Fall beauty...and then pour it right in the cup with that latte. Can I have a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice latte instead? Chia does NOT like ME! Beautiful images on a Frosty Fall morning here. Hugs-Diana

Janean,
Oh-h-h-. . .I love your "pumpkin" hues! My favorite tea for the Fall is a new one I recently purchased @ The Spice Merchant in Wichita... Cranberry Orange Tea. It even has good size pieces of Orange peel in the blend! Thanks for posting these wonderful Fall photos!
Fondly,
Pat

Farm Girl said...

I do love the chai color it looks so warm and inviting. That top picture is just take your breath away gorgeous. I admit to having a pumpkin addiction this fall too. I don't remember it before.

Lovey pictures Janean,

I love chai tea and these photos. My fav is the first one. I could live in that room. When we were selecting the wall color for our home, we described to to our builder as "coffee with cream". So I really get the idea of decor that reminds you of chai tea. Love it and love Autumn!

Hi Janean!

You are a girl after my own heart!! I happen to love Chai Tea Latte! I can picture myself now, sitting in that beautiful rustic lodge, sipping Chai Tea Latte, while someone . . . someone very handsome, is rubbing my feet and whispering sweet-nothings in my ear. . . sigh . . .

Gorgeous pictures!!

Hugs,
Barb

Bernie said...

If it is pumpkin I love it, latte's, muffins, pies and the colors.

Technodoll said...

Goygeous - I could eat those rooms! And the bed with the white headboard is to die for... hubby and i have been looking for one just like that, to no avail.

I guess I'll just satisfy myself with a nice hot cuppa chai tea!

Dolores said...

Linda said...

I don't like Chai Tea, but I absolutely ADORE Autumn colors - they are my favorites year round really - both to wear and to decorate with. I'm not a fan of pastels. :)

Hope you have a great weekend,
Linda ♥

Stickhorsecowgirls said...

It's ALL yummy sounding to me!!! The Chai Tea Latte and the autumnal decor!

Christina said...

The "chai-colors" are perfect for autumn!! I like it! My summer deco is very beachy, with all shades of white and blue like a day at the sea. but when the leaves begin to fall and autumn is there, brown and beige and this sorts of colors are perfect.

christina!

kimsound studios said...

Okay, say yes to the "BEDSPREADS" :D
Love you, kimmie~pooh :D

Lori said...

Lovely post!
I do love the rich Autumn tones and could maybe have a family room of such or if vastly wealthy, I wish a retreat of sorts, but the whole house? No, don't think I could. Lori

Nancy said...

You always are able to appeal to all of the senses. Love the white dishes in the brown cabinet, the brown pillow etched in white, and oh, that chocolate/pumpkin latte thing. Yum.

Pondside said...

I'm not fond of neutrals, normally, but I really like them with the shot of pumpkin. I'll have a grande please!

Tanya said...

I love neutrals and fall and autumn...all the colors that go with it. I think I even like Autumn/Fall decor better than Christmas. These pics are just stunning and so warm and comfy to look upon. Thanks for sharing!
