Welcome to my cottage style Fall Home Tour. First, I want to thank the fabulous Marty of A Stroll Thru Life for hosting this week long tour of blogger’s fall homes! You can find the complete Fall home tour schedule for the week at the end of this post. If you are visiting from Making Home Base, thanks for stopping by! Wasn’t Chelsea’s home gorgeous!
If you are new here, my name is Doreen and fall is my favorite season! To me Fall = Cozy!
Fall Home Tour – Living Room
I kept the pillows on my sofa neutral with a pair of grid patterned pillows and this bird accent pillow. Sadie was in the mood to pose today!
I found some amazing white heirloom pumpkins this year. And created a vignette by sitting them inside a grapevine wreath and then added some tree branches to the wreath.
Look at this image carefully. Did you notice that my wood lanterns don’t match? I absolutely could not believe that I didn’t notice this until I was editing my photos!!!
Now, let’s move into the dining room.
Fall Home Tour – Dining Room
I continued the neutral fall decor in this space with soft shades of yellow, ivory, and gray. Here’s a look at my antique bucket bench and corner cupboard styled with white pumpkins, wheat, and what ironstone mixed with newer pieces. I also brought out some of my vintage pewter and mercury glass.
My tablescape is pretty, but not fancy; with two burlap table runners instead of a tablecloth. I used my pale yellow Pottery Barn Emma dinner plates, an off white salad plate, a gray soup bowl and gray tweed napkins for each place setting.
The centerpiece of faux pumpkins and gourds in a primitive wood bowl and then added some seed pods, branches, corn stalks, leaves, etc.
The place cards are small felted wool pumpkins and you can read more about them HERE.
Now, let’s head out to the screen porch.
Fall Home Tour – Screen Porch
Here on the porch is where I brought in some color with traditional orange and rust shades mixed with aqua. Most of my summer porch decor featured aqua, so I just brought in some fall accents to complete the look. The most obvious are the orange pumpkins! I also found some bittersweet and other berries and the golden mum at a local farm stand.
I found the pretty “gather” lumbar pillow, the multicolored throw, and paisley patterned pillows at HomeGoods!
And, the blue ball jar and that amazing Hubbard squash fit right in too!
