Now that our cozy cottage has been transformed for fall, come take a tour to see what autumn home decor has been added to be ready for our Cottages and Bungalows magazine photoshoot.
Decorating for fall is one of my favorite things to do. It’s the time when I see the biggest changes happening to both my house and garden for the year.
I have to admit, it makes me sad to see the flowers dying off. And I don’t have the opportunity to play in the garden every day.

Fall Living Room Tour
I change out the pillows from bright yellows and blues to roses, creams, and grays. The fresh summer flowers are replaced by dried hydrangeas and statice from my cutting garden.
Because I don’t have a fireplace mantle, I use the top of this cabinet to style fall vignettes. There are so many fun textures when shopping for pumpkins now, so I try to mix it up!
I try to mix some fresh-cut flowers into my fall decor. My garden is full of dahlias, which last well into the first freeze of the season, but I ordered more seeds for next year so I can have more of a variety of fall flowers throughout the season. Eucalyptus makes a great flower filler when making an arrangement.
I love fresh sunflowers and enjoy them for the month of September, but as the fall season progresses, I switch them out for dried flowers and grasses.
I also brought out the curly willow tree branches for the season. Some twinkle lights make it much more warm and more festive around here. I’ve limited the amount of transitional orange I put in the living room because I have a thing for turquoise and rose. But I might change it up next year.
Fall Kitchen Tour
The fall home tour continues with the kitchen. The fall decor here is all about wood cutting boards, copper, and dried flowers.
Who doesn’t love a farm sink full of flowers? These hydrangeas came from my garden! This is the first year that they had such a beautiful color to them, and it was the first year I dried my hydrangeas. They were the perfect fall addition to my home.
You can do so much with food when trying to decorate the kitchen. I loved the look of artichokes, pears, pomegranates, and baked goods on the counters.
Fall Bedroom Tour
Continuing with the fall home tour, I might have overdone it a bit in the bedroom with all the dried flowers.
Here’s my sweet model Lucy! She actually looks great with the fall decor!
Fall Outdoor Views
Check out this amazing view we had one fall evening. We pretty much had it all here…a rainbow, dark clouds, sun shining on the trees across the way, and that beautiful calm water with the sailboats. If only there were still flowers in the garden!
Here’s a fall tour of the greenhouse. I didn’t do too much to the greenhouse this year. But I’ve already been thinking about creating a haunted house for Halloween next year!
I am going to try to grow our pumpkins next year! We don’t have a lot of room, so it should be interesting. I love any pumpkin that is white or green!
I hope you enjoyed my fall home tour! It was a lot of fun decorating this year, knowing that everything we did was going to be featured in the autumn issue of Cottages and Bungalows.
Until next time,
