Welcome to my Fall Home Tour! This year I opted for a simple fall scene, with muted tones, dried arrangements, and of course touches of real and faux pumpkins.
When decorating for any season, I like to focus my attention on the areas we use most, which is typically the front porch, kitchen, and family room. Now that we have an outdoor fireplace, I also decorated our back porch and playhouse, since I hope to use this space until we see the first drop of (dare I say it!) snow!
Our fall front porch is quite simple this year, especially in comparison to last years porch, which was essentially a mum and pumpkin extravaganza. I layered a plaid mat, with a cheeky fall mat from the shop, and put my mum pots in these wicker baskets that I got from HomeSense. I love the warmth and texture they bring to the space. For the pots on my front steps, I used ornamental grasses, and I love how their dark colour looks against our light stone. Lastly, I reused my DIY fall pampas grass wreath from last year on my front door. I’ve linked a similar one here if DIYs aren’t your thing.
Our kitchen is always one of my favourite spaces to decorate; most likely because I spend so much time here! For this years fall kitchen decor, I opted for dried wreaths in the windows. Although I was hesitant about the oranges and yellows in the wreath, I love the pop of colour that they bring. These are from Ikea, but I’ve linked another pretty option below. I also layered a fall inspired piece of art (similar) with our cutting boards.
For the island I chose a large wood board as the base because I love it’s warmth and raw edges. I decided to use things that I had around the house for the decor, such as a cake stand, dish cloth and plates. Not only do they look pretty, but they’re practical and will hopefully encourage me to bake yummy fall treats all season long …wishful thinking? LOL. Lastly, I added natural coloured bunny tails to my pot, which I think tie in perfectly with the wreaths, and the family room fall decor.
Our family room fall decor, had a little more va va voom that previous years. I was inspired by some late night Pinteresting to make a fall themed pampas grass garland for my mantel, and I am OBSESSED with how it turned out. In addition to the pampas grass, I added feathers, bunny tails, a wood bead garland and simple candlesticks to complete the look. For the rest of the space, I added some felt pumpkins (Top Knot Living last year) and a monochrome pumpkin pillow that I picked up at HomeSense earlier this year.
The last stop on our fall home tour, is the back porch. I’ve never decorated this space for any season, but I was inspired by our new outdoor fireplace to make it cozy. I layered pumpkins by the fireplace, added a chunky knit throw, and cut some hydrangeas from our garden. I also replaced our summer flower pots with mums and cabbage for an added fall feel.
When the kids saw me decorating, they asked me to give their playhouse some love. All it took was a mini wreath from Ikea, some mums and a fall themed banner to put a smile on their faces – worth it! The mini doormat is used year-round but it ties in with the fall decor perfectly.
That concludes our fall home tour. What did you think? I included all the links below, as well as a few similar items that I’ve been eyeing. As always, leave any questions or comments below!
