I’m so thrilled to be participating in the Finding Fall Home Tour, that Laura from Finding Home organized! The tour includes 16 gorgeous homes, all decorated for Fall, and wraps up at the end of the week with even more Fall Decorating Ideas from Better Homes and Gardens Magazine! You will find so much inspiration for your own Fall Decorating, I hope you are able to pop over and visit all of the participating bloggers!
If you just stopped in from Jennifer’s place at The Old Painted Cottage, then welcome! And if you didn’t, make sure you go over and check out her lovely home tour too!
I punched up the color in my dining room this year and raided a big berry bush in my yard! I’ll be talking more about that next week and will show you how I made the wreath in the photo above as well. You may recall that last year I went with a much more subtle palette and muted tones, you can see that here.
I added a couple of urns to my dining room that I found on sale at Home Depot for only $35 each! These were a snap to fill, I just placed a couple of Pumpkins in them and more Berries.
I snagged these Wheat Bundles at Home Goods! Yay! They finally opened one in our area! I love white Pumpkins so I had to sneak a couple in, if you look closely there is a second one inside of my china cabinet! I needed it to fill up some empty space, so in it went.
More Pumpkins and Berries, I love how the oranges match almost exactly!
I decided to set my table buffet style, rather than with place settings like I normally do. I like the more casual look of it, and I think it shows off my antique Brown Transferware pieces nicely!
More berries in the Chandelier!
In the living room, I went with more muted tones, although I jazzed up with some touches of silver, like the huge Mercury Glass Pumpkin on my Coffee Table. You can see how this room looked previously from the Summer Tour of our Home.
The Mercury Pumpkin goes will with the Book Page Pumpkins that I made. I also brought back the Horse Print that I had up last Winter. Everyone asks me if that’s one of my graphics, but I’m afraid it’s not. Sorry!
I added some dried wheat to my Antique Ironstone Pitchers for a little texture.
More texture with the silver Artichokes.
I just picked up that rusty Orb from Marshalls, and I’m kind of in love with it.
In this corner I traded out the antique print that was here previously for a new mirror with an interesting shaped frame. I pulled together old and new accessories to make up this vignette.
And yes, I loved the rusty orb so much I bought 2 of them! Shhh! Don’t tell Mr. Fairy!
Loved these cute oversized wooden Acorns, so much that I decided to display them in their own house!
I collect these old concrete urns, they look great indoors and out!
Our Fall Vintage Mantel is about all that you will see in the Family room. If you read my blog, you may know that our kitchen is being totally remodeled right now, and the family room has become the overflow catch all room during the construction phase. I was able to pull the mantel together and that was about it. I layered the mantel up with family heirlooms and vintage finds.
I used this mirror as a back drop to my grandmother’s antique print. I actually purchased the mirror at Walmart, it’s part of the Better Homes and Gardens collection. I think the frame is so pretty and it was such a great price!
A few Hydrangeas from our Garden, some old books (I’ve got lots of those!) and more Ironstone.
I hope you enjoyed the Fall Tour of our Home! Make sure you stop by Melaine’s blog at My Sweet Savannah tomorrow to continue on with the tour! There will be 3 more beautiful homes for you to check out then!
