There are two kinds of people this time of year.
Those who are hanging on to the last bits of summer…
and those who are ushering in fall with open arms.
I’m in that second category.
Welcome to my Fall Home Tour!
This summer was so hot and humid that, as soon as the temperatures dropped and the humidity broke, I was ready for pumpkins and falling leaves.
Decorating for fall doesn’t have to break the bank. Small touches here and there create an overall autumn feel.
I love a teal, gold, and orange color scheme for fall. I love the warmth of the earth tones with the teal blues.
In my dining room, I added some fall (faux) foliage (say that ten times fast!) to a glass demijohn vase and to two galvanized pails on the chimney brick. The vase came from Marshalls and the pails from a furnishings consignment store.
These pails are my favorite thing in the dining room. I just tied burlap around their handles and hooked the burlap to the screws already in the brick.
Those are mason jar lids a friend gave me for free! Add wire and a champagne or wine cork to make a pumpkin!
Mini-pumpkins make great, inexpensive place cards.
The baker came from a thrift store, and the faux apples came from a craft fair. The fabric runners – the inspiration for the color scheme – are just strips of fabric hemmed with glue. They’re super easy to make – the post on how to make them is HERE.
I carried the color scheme into the living room.
I found the pillows and blanket at HomeGoods.
No fall decorating is complete without candy corn and mallow creme pumpkins!
Different pumpkins with different textures – fabric, mercury glass, copper, even plastic – from Marshalls and Michaels. All live happily together in my antique dough bowl.
I’m so glad it’s fall!
