I was invited by my friend Bree from Instagram @thehomemakingmomma, to take part in a Fall Home Tour she did on her blog, and it got me thinking I should take y’all on my own little fall tour. So grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and I’ll show you around a bit while pointing out the simple ways that I incorporate fall decor.
First a little geography, we live in a modest colonial in Massachusetts…just us, a dog, a cat and some chickens. We like to think we live on a farm somewhere in the country, one can dream right? Starting right out front on our simple and inviting farmers porch, you will find our front door flanked by Cracker Barrel rockers adorned with some unexpected fall pillows. Then I just added a lantern, mums and heirloom pumpkins. I adore the subdued colors of the heirloom pumpkins, making this my favorite place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee, while the kids play in the afternoon.
Entering into our living room, I like to keep this space neutral and cozy. The color palate generally stays the same…a neutral tan base, grays, taupe, and some light blues and greens. Once the weather turns to fall I like to add some fur and chunky knits. My fall decor is pretty simple…neutral pumpkins and a few fall pillows and signs. I like to keep the greenery around all year long.
This space flows right into our kitchen and dining area, where the story is quite the same…fall pillows and neutral pumpkins. I’ve taken the bench from our dining table, which already has 6 chairs, and am using it under the window as a window bench. It’s a fun area to play around with pillows, this being my current fall combo crush.
Two of my favorite areas to style in the kitchen, are the coffee station and this fun tiered tray. I would say its like accessorizing an outfit, it changes often depending on my mood.
Our current tablescape is nature inspired with wood, greenery, antlers, and finished off with a simple white pumpkin. This is literally being changed as we speak and may even get its own dedicated post, stay tuned for that.
Heading upstairs, our master and en suite is more of the same. In our bath I switched out our greenery for some cotton stems and wreath, a burlap pumpkin, and a fall sign. In the bedroom, with no surprise, I added my favorite autumn pillow and some more neutral pumpkins.
That about wraps up the fall home tour. Do you think we should go back and count how many times I said neutral?! It may or may not be for everyone, but I think I’ve managed to keep fall warm and cozy while keeping a neutral (there’s that word again) color palate and staying true to my sense of style. I’d love for you to tell me what you think, and make sure you check back for my fall tablescape.
