Welcome!! I’m so glad you’re here! If you are a regular reader, than of course you know I love you, but if this is your first time here, visiting from the Eclectically Fall Home Tour, welcome – I’m so glad you’ve stopped by! Finally, we have had some days that feel like fall. I find myself soaking in every single stage of fall this year. Little pockets of leaves that have already begun to turn, acorns and leaves falling in the yard. Enjoying some soup and crusty bread on a rainy Sunday with football playing in the background. And of course Pumpkin Spice! I’ll take it anyway I can get it, and as much as possible during this time of the year 🙂 I’m so excited to be joining my girl Kelly from Eclectically Vintage in her Fall Home Tour series.
You can view Kelly’s Fall Home Tour HERE, along with the entire list for this week. If you are visiting from Dear Lillie, welcome!
If you haven’t stopped by Dear Lillie yet, make sure you do! You can view her lovely tour HERE. I am tour #3, and the last stop for today, but make sure you stick around till the end to see who is first up tomorrow! Now on to the tour.
I’ve mentioned in posts before that other than Christmas, I don’t go craaaaazy decorating for every holiday. It’s more as the seasons change outside I like to reflect that in my home. Adding new textures, sometimes switching up the throw pillows. In ever season I love to add nature inside our home, however nothing says fall like adding in some pumpkins.
As much as this neutral loving girl likes the traditional warmer hues of autumn, I love sticking with more muted cooler tones. I’m a huge believer in trays on coffee tables! It’s an easy way to add decor, without over complicating things, and it can be easily moved when little people want to play, or snacks come out for Sunday football.
I found these gray and white speckled feathers at my parents house over the summer. They have a wide variety of chickens and guinea hens, all ranging in different colors, and while they were shedding some winter weight I sent my kids on a scavenger hunt for the largest ones they could find.
Adding texture in cozy throw blankets is another tried and true I stick to as the weather gets colder. Plus it keeps the tiny humans in the house from fighting over who gets to cuddle up with which blanket in the morning. There are plenty to go around.
I’ll be sharing later this week how I transformed some pumpkins to my decor taste, including this tiny navy pumpkin with a little sparkle, that you see below. Another way I brought in a fall feel was with these natural wood slats. They are great stacked in a vignette, or you can also see how I used them on my dining room table.
I shared in my Fall Vignette & Free Printable post where I got these amber jar candles you see below. I’m a sucker for vintage typography, and I love these because not only do the smell great, but they make great decor pieces as well. I think they would also look great in a bookcase on top of a few stacked books too!
I carried the same cooler color theme into our dining room as well, to keep things simple, but also flow together from one space to the next.
I moved our navy buffalo check pillows into the dining room for fall, and I love how they tie in with our painted table legs. I’m especially excited about the decor in our dining room, because you can find most of it in our New Curated Collection Line with Painted Fox!
For the center of the table I used our Heirloom Pumpkin Collection. The one from my coffee table tray, and one on my buffet is also in that collection, then I added my faux white painted pumpkin to the mix on the table.
I also used these Magnolia Picks you’ve seen sprinkled throughout the house, along with a few other wood slats, and of course more of those gray and white speckled feathers. I wrapped some of my vases with birch bark I pulled out of our cord wood delivery. You should have seen the look on my husbands face when he asked what on earth I was doing 😛 All for the sake of decor right?! I wrapped the bark around the vases and then secured with some jute ribbon on the top and bottom, that way I can just take it off when I’m done with it 😉
I loved the detail in the heirloom pumpkins, and their coloring was just perfect. Each one has it’s own unique size and markings, just like you would see in nature.
Another fall decor item we added to the line were these beautiful autumn berry branches. I love real ones, but not everyone has access to real, and it’s nice to have a real looking option without the mess real ones can add when they’ve dried out by the end of the season.
It had been a while since I had written on my chalkboard door, so I thought it would be fun to do a word collage of everything we love about fall! I told you I had a pumpkin spice love, so naturally that made the top of the list, but as I wrote these words it really made me grateful for everything this season has to offer, and get excited for what’s to come!
Tomorrow Lily Pad Cottage kicks off Day 2. I always love seeing what Kelly does, I know it will be splendid!
