FALL HOME TOUR
Why My Home Is Not Farmhouse Style
There is one thing you should know about our home- it is not farmhouse style and thank goodness! I need COLOR!
Fall is my favorite season, because of all the bright colors of autumn. I like my pumpkins orange and not white and grey. No offence to those who have white decor, white walls, white furniture and white everything. I do love neutrals – looking at all those ivory, grey, and tan shades is certainly calming and wonderful . . . in someone else’s home. As for me, I went with neutral walls so that I could change out my home decor every season with a pop of color.
Today I am sharing a few areas of my home decorated for fall, starting with our entry table above that is a layered abundance of fall floral arrangements and rustic accents. Yes, I painted that scarecrow stave in the corner many years ago and made the fall wood sign last year.
Our dining room has a wonderful large bay window that lets in so much light in the morning – of course I took these photos a bit late in the afternoon, so even with my flash on and lights all turned on, its a bit dark, but I think its still bright enough to show off. One of my favorite pieces in our home is the wood box centerpiece on our dining room table – I change it up every season. Right now it’s filled with leaves, glitter pumpkins, acorns and three electric candles.
My husband made the hanging wood piece above our buffet. I designed it, but he built it for me last year. I added the lanterns and switch out the wreath for different holidays.
We just purchased this sideboard cabinet a few weeks ago- it has stunning details, which is why I fell in love with it, plus it was refinished. I found it at our local area pop up shops in Kansas City, called the West Bottoms. I love shopping there- I always find recycled home decor and vintage treasure!
This is our kitchen and informal dining room fireplace and my favorite place in the home. On cold winter nights we turn on the gas fireplace and eat dinner at this cozy table-
Last are a few of my side tables decorated for fall around our home.
Finally, a few items I’ve tucked in that are actually for sale over at my home decor shop on Etsy- Once Upon A Home Designs
