This year I’ve really changed things up by using the traditional fall colors of orange, gold, brown, and green in my Fall Home Tour!
Welcome to my 2019 Fall Home. If you are here visiting from Cassie Bustamante, welcome! I absolutely adore Cassie’s style! Her family moved earlier this year, and I’ve loved following how she is transforming a house into a beautiful, cozy home for her family! And, I have to take a moment to thank our host, Marty of A Stroll Thru Life, for all she does to host these seasonal tours! For the most part, I’ve kept my home decor neutral for the past few years. I do love a neutral palate, but I began craving some color. So, here’s a look at my Fall living room with more traditional fall colors.

Pretty dramatic, right? I painted the white shiplap focal wall this moody gray/green, Luxe by Magnolia Home. I’m absolutely loving the dark and moody vibe. I’m not totally sure about the shade of green, but I’m going to live with it for a bit. It reads a bit “teal” (depending on the lighting) and that’s not really what I was going for. But, I do love the pop of color it adds.
The other change in the room was a new area rug from Rugs USA. They had a fantastic sale Labor Day weekend and I picked up this Celeste Green Faded Persian Rug. Rugs are so inexpensive now and they make such a big impact in a room! I really fell in love with the muted, faded colors in this particular rug.
You might think that these more traditional fall colors wouldn’t work with my gray furniture, but they do. And, they really make my living room feel cozy for fall.
A Fall Gallery Wall
I’m practicing restraint when it comes to how many pillows I stack on my sofas. My kids come over and throw them on the floor! So, instead of five, I went with three in varying sizes and shapes. And, above the sofa I created a little fall-themed gallery wall.
I’ll be sharing more about this gallery wall soon, including the details of how we made the architectural piece from an old headboard.
I love to use brass in the fall. It just warms up a space with its glow. This oblong brass pedestal bowl with a real pumpkin and faux greens and berries from Hobby Lobby make quite a statement on the black mantel.
All of the pretty pillows are from Home Goods, except the black and white buffalo check pillow. I got it at Pier One last year. You can find it HERE.
Another fall favorite is amber glass. I wish my amber glass jug and jar were vintage. But, I picked them up at Target! The large jug is from the Hearth and Hand Line. And, the small jar with the pheasant feathers was $3 in the dollar spot! The faux stems in the large and the wooden mushroom are all from Hobby Lobby. The faux florals are 50% off this week!
I painted a new primitive floral for the entryway. I’ll be making prints of this painting available in my Etsy shop soon.
Now lets, move from the living room into the dining room. This space is more like what you are used to seeing here – light and bright! But, I carried the use of brass and a bit of fall color with this rust colored mum. You can bring a garden mum indoors. Just make sure they get light and water. It was hard to find one blooming this early!
Fall Dining Room
It’s hard to see, but I used a plaid brown, black and ivory throw on table. This throw blanket was a little small to cover the entire table, so I laid it on an angle with the ends draping over the sides. For a centerpiece, I used the long breadboard that I made years ago and this crock filled with fall grasses. And, I love this little glazed ceramic pumpkin that matches perfectly!
Here’s a closer look at my corner cabinet.
The wood leaf garland is from Home Goods last year, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they have them again this year too. I love getting these kinds of garlands. It was used last year and is on display now, and I think I’m going to cut it apart and use the individual leaves on my Thanksgiving place settings this year!
I purchased this scroll with one of my favorite fall quotes by F. Scott Fitzgerald – “Life Starts all Over Again When it Gets Crisp in the Fall.” I thought about trying to make my own, but I’m so glad I just purchased this one. The paper is really heavyweight, so it won’t tear easily when in storage.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see my Fall Home today! I’d love to hear what you think about the painted shiplap and the use of more traditional colors!
