Fall Home Tour

Hey friends! I am sharing my farmhouse fall home tour today.

I have been waiting for this day all week!

The day I get to share my fall home tour with you and all my blogging friends.

Happy Fall to all of you.

Mother Nature seems a bit unsure which way she wants to go with the seasons…summer seems to linger with the warmer temperatures while some of the trees have started to show a change in colors.

My fall decorating style

My fall decorating style has changed over the years. Last year, I went all out with tons of brightly colored foliage and traditional colors.

This was last years rustic fall mantel.

Currently, I have decided to go with my heart and that is definitely with a more neutral color palette and natural elements.

Once the fall season starts our family tends to go on quite a few nature walks.

I love bringing natural elements into the home, as I did with this room, natural elements for fall.

I am content with finding treasures from nature to decorate with. As my kiddos grow, they are still enjoying the walks and love climbing on fallen trees along the path. We collected a few pieces to decorate with for our fall tablescape, so let’s start with that.

Farmhouse Fall Home Tour Tablescape

On our nature walk, we found the most incredible moss right off the path by the river.

The moss was growing in perfectly imperfect little mounds and was so easy to pull up.

So, I placed the moss in some small ironstone dishes I found at one of my favorite boutiques. These dishes were displayed on top of old fishing floats. The texture of them is so amazing!

We also pulled some bark off a red pine. The pieces just flaked off and each was unique in texture and shape.

I created some seeded eucalyptus arrangements to flank this phenomenal jarrahdale pumpkin.

This type of pumpkin is my all time favorite.

In addition to its amazing muted green-blue color, it has these soft almost distressed looking white stripes. It was a great find!

I also love incorporating a touch of whimsy because it is fun for my kiddos. And, who doesn’t love polka dots and decoupage??

Just for fun, I had a few bed springs laying around the basement to plop the whimsical fruit into. These were used to create vertical interest.

And I am totally crushing on plaid this season…well and last season. So, I reused this plaid shirting fabric I found last fall. I love the color palette.

And those fun pumpkin leaves with little messages of thankful and grateful…those are a free printable from the lovely Kristen at Ella Claire.

I fell in love with them and I have a few projects in the works incorporating these leaves.

Vintage postal sorter

Let’s head over to that vintage postal sorter that stands in the corner of our cozy dining area.

I found this piece on Craigslist. A hobby farmer had been using it to store shoes in their mudroom. I got a great deal on it because it needed a good cleaning and a paint makeover.

I have a real weakness for pieces with little cubbies. I painted some dollar store pumpkins white and simply decorated this postal sorter for fall.

We found these birch branches along the bridge on our nature walk. I just pulled the leaves off so that the focus could be on the branches.

Ready to cozy up in the living room?

Living Room

This is our light and bright neutral living room. I kept the decorating simple in this space. Mostly because this is where we spend quite a bit of time as a family and with young kiddos it needs to stay simple.

I focused on creating layers, texture, and variations of neutral tones.

Can you tell I have a pillow obsession?

Most days these are lying all over the floor. The rest of the family does not share in my love of pillows on the couch. They would much rather use them for pillow fights than any sort of decorative purpose.

dried hydrangeas and acorns. simple farmhouse style fall decorating via dandelionpatina.com

My limelight hydrangeas were amazing this year! I was able to give quite a few of my bushes a haircut and you really can’t even tell I took any plumes off. They are beautiful free decorating materials. I also shopped around our house this year for most of my decorating pieces just as I did with my neutral fall mantel.

  1. You are so talented at putting just the right things together, Michelle! Your table setting looks incredible and I love all the unique touches like the moss and polka dot pumpkins. I think I’ve developed a little addiction to gathering leaves and acorns this year on walks, so it was nice to see that I’m not the only one who picks things up from the woods 🙂 And I LOVE the mail sorter and the way you decorated it. Really lovely post, as always!

  3. Wow. I just have to tell you, you have such a gift for decorating. I would literally NEVER think of half the things you did. Bed Springs?! lol So cool. I’m going to follow you to study how you decorate! I know some people have a natural gift for decorating, but I am not one of those. I am embarrassed by my decorating skills haha But I’m really trying to work on it!

    • Jessie, I know you can do it! Thanks for your compliments! Believe me, I struggle too. For me, it takes time. Time to figure out what I really love because I have an appreciation for so many styles and colors. But, I am moving towards what I love in my heart and the fall home tour was just the start of sharing what I truly love. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you get stuck on something or just want to chat decorating. I am just an email away! Have a great week.

      • Wow thank you so much:) I may very well take you up on that! my husband and I are moving into a…barn loft haha and I am determined to make it look pretty but it’s challenging when you’re renting haha I’m definitely referencing your blog for ideas!

  8. Hi, Michelle ~ This tour is absolutely beautiful! I’m a big lover of bringing natural items in from outside, so this was right up my alley. I love the bed springs and the eucalyptus. I especially love the moss you found by the river. It is the perfect shade of green and the texture adds so much! I also love the mail sorter in the corner. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!

  9. Everything is stunning, right down to the pie! Love your style, and I’m so happy you came by to share your home at Vintage Inspiration Party.

  10. You are very gifted in decorating! I love all the details and touches that you added to your home to make it so stunning! I love how you used muted colors – you pulled off the look flawlessly!

  11. Michelle, could you share a bit about your circular wood wall hanging?

    • Sure Terri! I had the piece made by a local carpenter. He had barn wood lying around his property and I asked if he could make me a piece of circular wall art with different wood tones and sizes. I love how it turned out.

  12. Let me begin by saying WOW! You’re home is breath taking and you’re attention to detail is amazing. I love everything about this Fall home tour but I have to say my fav thing are those gorgeous thick and large wooden candle holders. They are gorgeous. Love your tablescape, so beautiful. I wish my boys where a little bit older than 1 and 2 at times only so I could have the things I want decorating my house without fearing they will break it. Haha. One day… one day 😉 Have a great week!

    • I can remember being where you are now with little ones. I know how frustrating it can be not to be able to have your home the way you want it. It will come Maria. My girls are now almost 8 and 10. The time goes by fast overall. But, I know some days it just doesn’t go by fast enough. You will get there and it will look amazing! Thank you for your lovely comments.

  13. I love the big round wall piece in your living room! also the chunky candle holders on the coffee table and the nesting pumpkins are too cute!. I toured your house several times, it’s absolutely beautiful, I love it all!

    And thank you so much for linking up to the Create-share-inspire link party. We really appreciate it.
