Come take a cozy fall home tour of my house decked out for the season in comfy textures, pops of orange and festive elements. Creating the perfect atmosphere for lounging around and enjoying cooler weather.
Ask me what my favorite season is and I’ll almost instantly answer fall. Although through the years I have gained a special appreciation for each season, fall will always hold such a special place in my heart. When I was younger and lived at home, I remember fall being such a big deal in my family’s house. Decorating for fall, or any season really, was always a big event that involved my mom baking treats and everyone’s participation. Now as an adult when I think of fall, I always think back to those treasured memories from my childhood.
So it goes without saying that fall is a big deal in my home. It’s the perfect excuse to always be baking things in the oven and cooking cozy foods like soups and breads. I always wait until September to drag out the fall decor, as I’ve learned to respect each season during it’s time.
Let’s dive right in and I’ll give you a little fall tour of what my home looks like this fall season. Starting is the entryway. I am doing a post on this space in a later time giving details and sources, but for now I’m happy to share my simple inspiration for the season. I chose to drape a cozy flannel textured throw over the side of the bench and set with a faux pumpkin. Not much else was done to this space other than some cotton stems added to the wicker wall basket. I finished the area’s look with another textured element. I chose a rusty orange toned pillow from Hearth & Hand’s fall line last year.
The Living Room
In the living room, I didn’t add much fall decor throughout the room. My main focus this year was a Pumpkin Patch Scroll I purchased from Cottonwood Shanty last year and wanted this to be my main focal piece. I was drawn to the warm neutral color of the scroll and wanted to mesh that with some brown accents. I purchased some fall stems incorporating dried magnolia leaves and pinecones as well as two large amber vases from Hobby Lobby. For the vases, I selected some dried florals out of my fall decor buckets from several years ago.
I’m already so excited about the fires I will get to burn this year in this space. That is what truly makes this area cozy to me. On the hearth, I wanted to reuse things I already had so I placed a wicker laundry basket on one side and filled it with a chunky knit blanket and a pillow with a cover from PCB Home I purchased years back. Last, I stick a cinnamon broom I purchased at Trader Joes. These are my favorite because they make the entire room smell up. So amazing!
My bedroom was done fairly simple. This is a space I am currently thinking up some ideas for. I’m wanting to have the space freshened up around spring, but for now, it still needed to have some cozy fall elements, so I simply added another textured throw and a handmade pumpkin pillow I purchased at a vendor market a few years back. This year the room is decorated simply. I hope to have it a little more festive for next fall.
The Dining Room
At this point in the post, I realized I am skipping around the floorpan of my house, but it’s all good because my home layout is a little awkward anyways. Bear with me. When first walking in my home, to your left is the dining room conjoined with the kitchen. I call it a dining room, it’s more of an eat in area. Here, I have my new antique farmhouse table styled with some natural pieces. I wanted to keep this area styled with most vintage or antique pieces.
This area’s cozy fall elements feature an antique washstand pitcher I snagged during a recent antique haul filled with dried wheat. For the table runner, I used an old white linen curtain that I anticipate using for a sewing project at one point. On that runner, I chose some faux white pumpkins along with pine cones and more dried florals. Finishing the look off are vintage brass candlesticks and a wicker basket under the pitcher. I really played on textures here to give that cozy fall factor.
To the right in the picture above, I have an antique cabinet from an old Amish hutch styled with some antique pieces. And antique scale with a faux fall mini wreath and a pumpkin. Some mini seltzer bottles, and some various ironstone pieces. As well as cutting boards and brown transferware.
On my antique chalkboard which is hanging above the hutch, I did a a few short words to emulate fall in elegant writing and added some leaves above for more color.
In the kitchen I had the most fun. I’m captivated by my new open shelving and couldn’t wait to get some vintage copper elements on them. To me this is the most cozy fall room in my house currently. Making tea, baking sweets and brewing a hot cup of coffee before sitting on my porch in the chilly fall weather. I wish you smell it here on a day where I’m burning a candle, baking something or doing a fall simmer pot on the stove.
On the shelves, I just have a lot of warm brown pieces mixed with other fall elements. Vintage copper, amber jars, faux pumpkins, and some faux $1.50 stems from the craft store.
I have my rolling pins in an old crock on display for rolling out cinnamon rolls and pie crusts and mugs stacked to have on hand for warm drinks.
I also changed out some fabrics in here to reflect a changing season. Replacing the vintage print mat below the sink, I laid a printed jute mat from World Market I purchased a few years ago. The colors in this piece do a great job at reflecting the colors we see on fall trees. Also at World Market, I snagged some functional and aesthetic tea towels for dishes and to drape around.
Here in the kitchen, I also wanted to create little sections that suggest a certain mood. By the fridge, I removed my faux antique art, replaced it with a little wooden Cider Sign and placed a thrifted basket with fresh apples on top of my wooden drawer box.
