Hello! Today I have a home decorating post to share with you. I scrolled through my blog and realized that I haven't shared a Fall Decorating post in two years. My main reason is that I don't buy new decorations every year and I pretty much decorate the same way with very little variance, so, why post the same thing every year? However, I do change my decorations slightly, and, I have a lot of new followers through Bloglovin who have probably never seen a post from two years ago, so, I'm back with another Fall Decor post! If you'd like to see the post I did two years ago and see if you can notice any changes, you can read it HERE.
As most of you already know, Fall is my second least favorite season. Only Winter trumps Fall for my displeasure. I always see it as such a sad time of the year, when everything is starting to decay and die, and then there is that awful chill in the air that I just can't stand. But, with every cloud, there is always a silver lining, and that is the fall color. I just wish the color part of Fall wasn't so brief only to be followed by months of endless grey and drab.
My house is the perfect home to decorate for fall or Christmas, as the earthy, Tuscan colors harmonize with it beautifully. Decorating for Spring on the other hand, with all it's pastel and pretty colors, can be a true challenge.
I love to bring these outside colors into my home by using artificial fall garlands, flowers, and berries. I cover all the major tables and surfaces in each room with these arrangements. The picture below shows the top of a hutch in my dining room. I added a antique fall plate as my main focal point, a tan candle for some warmth, a little bit of a harvest gold napkin peeks out to add some softness, and a wheat arrangement in the back provides a little more height to an otherwise flat decor.
I know it's an odd place for a piano, but we have our piano in the dining room. As soon as one of my children buys a house, it will be going to them as neither I nor my husband play. It actually was the perfect place to have a piano when the children were small as they were always in sight when I was in the kitchen or living room; however, it did prove difficult to watch t.v., if someone was playing the piano at the same time.
Below you can see a far away shot of the hutch in the dining room. The same collection of harvest gold antique plates echoes the one on top of the hutch, tying everything together.
Because I don't like to clear the dining room table just to eat or work, I try to keep as little on it as possible. Most of the year a clear vase of sand and shells from our Pensacola Beach vacation sits in the middle of this table, but this time of the year it is this candle arrangement.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at the beautiful colors of fall in my home. Check out my post from two years ago if you would like to see more far away shots of these rooms.
So what about you? Do you decorate for Fall or any of the seasons? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a great day! Amy
