Can you believe it is almost October? It is officially fall. My home is ready for the fall season.
Today, I’m sharing my fall home tour as part of the Bloggers’ Best Fall Home Tours hosted by my lovely friend Kelly, from the Tattered Pew.
Kelly has organized 30 wonderfully talented home décor bloggers to share their homes with you. Their homes are filled with so much fall decorating ideas and inspiration.
If you are coming over from my friend Kristin, White Arrows Home, welcome! She has such a beautiful home in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.
For those of you that are new, I am Tammy. Together with my husband and little fur baby Piper (2-year old French Bulldog), we live in historical Southern Maryland.
You will often see Piper in my photos as she is never far from me.
I am so glad that you stop by to see my cozy fall home tour. I hope you find some decorating inspiration here.
Our modern new built farmhouse has an open concept. Therefore, there is no foyer area. You walk straight into the dining room area with my home office to the right.
With an open concept, the key is to have the design flow from room to room. That design includes colors that flow and coordinate together.
This year, I am using a lot of earthy tones in my fall decorations. You will see lots of textures, wood elements and even dried flowers from my garden.
The dining room is the first room you see when entering our home.
Instead of a runner or tablecloth, I used a wool throw on the table. Often I will use a throw as a tablecloth or table square depending on the size of it. I believe in working with what you have in the home first.
After creating my center piece, I bunched up the throw around it. I love the warm tones in this throw and the texture it adds to the wooden table.
You often see that I love to incorporate plants into my home decorations. It makes no difference if you use real or faux. I use both in my home.
Greenery helps to create that cozy feeling in the room. Try adding a pumpkin or fall pick into your plant for more visual interest.
I made a moss topiary for my sideboard. You can read about it here. It is so easy to make and a lot more reasonable then to purchase one new.
This creamy white pumpkin use to be orange. I decided to paint it to fit into my fall decorations. You can find my full tutorial at Beautiful Pumpkin Makeover With Dixie Belle Paints.
The kitchen, kitchen dining area and family room all flow into a large space. It is perfect for us with a large family. We have grown children and a growing family with 4 grandchildren. There is lots of space for the grands to play.
I found this wonderful rug that come in various sizes. It is so plush and soft. The grand littles love to lay and watch television on it. This rug is amazing and cleans up so well.
All of the items found in my home can be found on my “SHOP MY HOME”.
The wreath over my fireplace is actually two wreathes. I found an over sized grapevine wreath in my basement. I hung the grapevine wreath and added the 24″ wreath centered over top of it. Now it fits the space!
Lots of textures on the fireplace to soften the stark white hearth and mantel.
I design with comfort in mind. Pillows and throws will be tossed on the floor. Grandchildren and dogs will lay on them too. The items for my home must be children and pet friendly.
The pumpkins are actually pillows. The grand littles can take them out of the basket. They love to lay on them.
This wreath is recycled from a few years ago. I store all of my wreathes in plastic wreath boxes. It keeps them protected and looking good for years to come.
kitchen dining area
The kitchen dining area, I kept very simple this year. A tall terra cotta vase was added with some hydrangeas dried from my garden. If you are interested in learning how to dry hydrangeas, I have a tutorial on how to dry hydrangeas.
Over the coffee bar, I added a few fall touches. I made this wood bead fall wreath.
On the opposite site of the table area, I have my favorite bench. I bought this bench from a friend. She made the bench from an old bed. It’s a favorite spot for my grandchildren to sit. I love to sit and read here too.
Hope you enjoyed my cozy fall home tour. Be sure to pop over to my talented friend, Rachel at The Ponds Farmhouse. She is sharing all of her budget friendly tips with you to create a beautifully decorated home for the fall.
