Welcome to my fall home tour! 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 everyday.
I change out the pillows from the 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.
You’ll see a constant theme with my vignettes. There’s a lot of dried hydrangeas, picnic baskets and pumpkins throughout.
I also brought out the curly willow tree branches for the season. Some twinkle lights make it much more warm and 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.
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 them. 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.
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!
This was quite an 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! I’m hoping to make next year even bigger and better!
