Fall Home Tour

Happy Fall y’all! It’s Farmhouse Friday…welcome to our Fall home tour, I’m so glad you’re here :) Come on in…let’s start in the kitchen.

 My style of decorating is vintage country farmhouse…and when the seasons change, I really like to use natural, simple decor. And you wouldn’t believe what I had to go through to get a few branches of colorful leaves :/ Here in Louisiana, it’s hard to find signs of Fall this early in the season.

 I should mention…you will not see ONE pumpkin in our home tour :(  I know! It’s crazy…but, I couldn’t find the Cinderella or white pumpkins. And, I will wait. Until then, check out these cuties! Strawberry corn! Have you ever?? I’m really loving the color :)

 I did, however, find an abundance of these Princess Persimmons :) They are such a lovely soft orange color. I added them here in small vintage ink bottles on our coffee station, and you’ll see them again in the dining room.

 Do you see the large vintage corbels below? Well, we found them at a local shop owned by my friend Terry…and we finally got them attached to the alcove between the dining and family rooms. I do love the way they look :)

 This baking station is a busy area during the Fall season. We will spend a lot of time baking our favorite cookies and pumpkin muffins.

In our family room, I added some pretty colorful leaves here and there. And a favorite French burlap sack serves as a perfect pillow cover. I like to add warmth by layering textures like grainsacks or vintage sheets on our sofas.

 Our dining room is probably my favorite room to decorate. It’s home of the farmtable my husband built, and my chippy blue vintage cabinet full of ironstone.

 Although I do love decorating our home, and making it cozy for the upcoming Holiday season…my true love is my sweet family. We have lots of fun during the cooler weather months together. Outdoor dinners, smores around the fire, and late night movies or morning coffee on the deck…this is what I look forward to most of all :)

 Now, I have a confession to make…I didn’t spend any money on decorating my house for FALL! Except for the apples & strawberry corn, I didn’t purchase anything new. I cut branches from trees. That’s all. So, if you are on a tight budget, and still want to decorate for Fall, just add a few colorful branches and fruit. You’ll be surprised how little pops of autumn colors can cozy up a room :)

oh wow, Becky! I absolutely adore your home! It is soooo pretty! And all the amazing french farmhouse details! I could just sit there all day drinking coffee and soak up the pretty :) All the natural elements like the branches and fruit goes perfect with your light and whitewashed furniture. I have never even heard of strawberry corn! So cool! I will definately go out this weekend and find some fall decorations. Here in Norway, the leaves are allready turning in lovely, subtle orange and brown colors! Aaah, I love it! I am a little obsessed with small farmhouse benches at the moment, and I saw that you have several! Lucky you!
I just wrote a post on my blog about our dining room makeover, and how I stribe for the farmhouse cottage style. But that style is a little different in Norway then you americans:) Please come over and have a look and tell me what you think;)
Have a great day!

Wow, Becky, this post... overwhelming. The Fragment, the doors, the country touch without being too rural - and then the simple but breathtaking Decor with FALL. You really are an artist who comines style with life!!
I wish you a wonderful weekend - but I am sure, in this surrounding and your spirit it will be! Greetings from Méa, who now will try to copy your decor a bit - what is hard, as I live in the City...

Becky,
Your home looks great with the Fall touches. Where in the world did you find the strawberry corn? I have never seen it before and love the look of it. I am looking forward to adding some Fall touches to my home when I return home from the Market on Chapel Hill show that I am doing next weekend.

Blessings,
Linda

Becky, all your fall touches are so special. I find that it is so easy for me to stick up a piece of faux branches , etc. The use of the simple, and the real is so much better. I just love your home. You can certainly tell it is filled with and built on love..Happy Sunday..Judy

Oh Becky, I always like a tour of your home. I like the little pops of blue. Love the stool, the barn door and the blue cabinet but of course, white is my favorite too. I can do burlap and cloth pumpkins but I too love the cinderella pumpkins.

Kristy said...
