Editor’s note: We often wonder if there’s anything Mia Carameros can’t do. The designer and artist is one of our favorite creative gals about town, so when we heard she’d moved into a charming Austin bungalow, we couldn’t wait to see what she’d do with the place. Today she’s giving us a first look with a dreamy fall makeover for her front porch. With the help of floral designer Sarah Reichert, Mia crafted a floral wreath that looks gorgeous fresh, and is expected to look even more beautiful when it’s dried. Tell us how you did it, ladies!
From Mia: Ever since I moved in to my tiny little house with the blue door I have been dreaming about all the ways I could dress up my front porch for every holiday season (seriously, I even dreamed up how I can decorate for Valentines day — picture layers of hand cut paper heart garlands tied from end to end). Will cooler temps on the horizon, I’ve been recalling a garland I saw last year when I was in Italy in San Gemini on the first day of Fall, or as the locals call it “Primo groin d’Autunno.”
