Cottage Style Fall Home Tour

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

Fall Home Tour – Living Room

Let’s begin my fall home tour in the living room because that’s where you enter our home.  I kept my fall decor fairly neutral this year.  My fall mantel features an oval mirror layered over a larger mirror that hangs above the mantel.  I filled a white vase with branches of dried okra seed pods.  There are faux leaves, faux pears I spray painted silver, a few mercury glass votives, and pheasant feathers scattered along the top of the mantel.  And, my favorite fall pheasant statues finish out the vignette.  I placed one of the figures on top of two old books to give it more height.

The watercolor feather wall charts are a DIY project that I shared HERE.  The watercolor feather prints are part of my FREE Printable Library for my email subscribers.

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.

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!

This is all SO beautifully done! Love all of the details, thanks for sharing! I am curious, where did you happen to find your grey pincushion chair? I'm on the look out for some myself.

Oh my goodness, absolutely stunning. I love the subtle, neutral tribute to fall. It is so classy, and yet so inviting. I particularly love the pewter colored pheasants. It's all amazing. Thanks for inspiring the world. Cheryl @
