Hi, Friends. Today I’m excited to be joining some of my blogging friends for the Welcome Fall Home Tour. If you are here visiting from Suzy’s – Worthing Court – Welcome! At the end of this post, you’ll find links for the other homes participating on this tour! For this tour I’m sharing my bedroom and upstairs landing dressed up for fall. We’ll start in my bedroom.
I kept things simple in our bedroom with just a few touches of fall and a slight change in the color palate. I painted the walls a light gray, Benjamin Moore Gray Owl. The walls had been a silvery blue and even though I still liked the color, I felt it was limiting me in my decor choices. Now that I have a more neutral palate, I can bring in colorful accents or bedding.
For fall I switched out the dusty pink quilt for a charcoal gray quilt. I did want a touch of pink in the room, so I folded the pink quilt and placed it on the end of the bed and added a matching lumbar pillow to contrast with the gray tones on the bed.
On each of the shutters behind the nightstands, I tied two small cotton stem wreaths.
The other fall element I used upstairs is wheat. I love the mix of the golden wheat with this small pewter pitcher.
On the dresser I added a few items for fall – a silver vase filled with leaves and a framed fall print.
And, some pretty mercury glass pumpkins.
This piece is another recent transformation. It was originally a vintage wardrobe that I transformed into an open storage unit for extra linens in our upstairs hallway. It was painted white, but then I saw this pale blush paint color – Ella Rose from the Magnolia Home paint line. I fell in love with the shade and repainted this piece. It’s a bit feminine and girly, but I like it!
On top of my new pink piece is another pitched filled with wheat, a fun dressing mirror, and these two silver pheasants. You can also see the reflection of the hanging star pendant light.
From here you can see the star pendant light and a blanket ladder at the top of the staircase. I hung a larger cotton wreath from this ladder along with some blankets – of course!
This is a view from the other side of the pink shelf unit. On the wall is an old photo of my grandparents with my mother at about age 3 and she is holding her cat. My mom was also a crazy cat lady from a very young age! The frame here was made by a local craftsman using old barn siding.
I’ll say goodbye with this pic of Sadie enjoying the new sweater throw on the bed. Thanks for stopping by today for the Welcome Fall Home Tour. If you’d like to see more of my fall home this year, just click the links below.
