Fall Home Tour & Entertaining Blog Hop
Hello everyone, It's time for a fall tour!! I am so excited to be teaming up with 28 other decor bloggers to bring you this fun Fall Home Tour and Entertaining Blog Hop hosted by Angelina of Peonies and Orange Blossoms.
Today, I am opening the doors of our home to give you an glimpse of how I decorate our home for the autumn season. If you are visiting my blog for the first time, a big welcome to you. For those of you coming over from Leanna's lovely home at Faeries and Fauna, thank you for coming over. How charming is Leanna's home?
I still can't believe that Autumn is only a day away but I am ready to embrace it. Fall is by far my favorite season to decorate and as September comes around, our 1912 Colonial Home gets decked up in all the glorious burnished hues of the autumn season. To me, these colors impart warmth and hospitality.
My decor style is a bit Old-World meets contemporary comfort and our foyer is decorated to reflect that. It's what I call rustic and refined!!
An old fashion radiator is bedecked with vintage pieces, weathered books, fresh pumpkins in orange and light yellow and a floral arrangement in crimson foliage in a cozy vignette welcome visitors into our home.
In our living room, I like to keep things low key and comfy. My intention is to give it a cozy feel year round but in the fall, I like to make it more inviting. Using a warmer color palette helps me achieve that welcoming feel.
A few French Style pieces of furniture, Crystal Chandelier and grand Gold Gilded mirror with plenty of curves and beautiful detailing give our living room a bit of a Parisian vibe.
For those of you that already follow me, you know that I have a romantic heart. I have a soft spot for things with patina and pieces with ties to the past. Many of my most beloved treasures have been found at flea markets and antique shops. These vintage finds go hand in hand with modern pieces so don't be afraid to mix the old with the new. To mix rustic with refined. Create your own personal style.
Our dining room also reflects that old world and contemporary style that I love. The beautiful wall art in gold tones and deep blues was the inspiration for the decor in this room.
For this table, I kept things simple. I wanted to create a focal point but did not want anything that was over the top. Something that was nature inspired and easy to put together. So I grabbed a plain white bowl from the kitchen, added a few orange and creamy pumpkins, a little greenery and it all came together in less than five minutes.
A few well-chosen decorative accents add interest and elegance to the room.
Many happy and precious memories are created around our table. It is where
we like to make our friends and family feel how truly important they are to us. And as much as I love creating a truly beautiful table, my goal is to always make our guests feel comfortable and relaxed at our table.
I also enjoy preparing yummy meals for my family and friends. It is something that give me great joy! For this Fall Home and Entertaining Tour, prepared two desserts. One was a delicious pumpkin flan/creme caramel and the other one, was a recipe for the pretty and mouth watering Apple Pie and Creamcheese jars. (Click link above for recipe)
White plates are my go-to when I want to keep things easy and stress-free. They are an excellent starting point for setting a table. To add a bit of splash to my place setting, I always try to find a decorative element that echoes the season. I was thrilled when I found these adorable wooden signs at my local fall fair a few weeks ago. They are the perfect finishing touch...
Don't judge, but I am a sucker for desserts... And one is never enough!
Here is the ultimate fall dessert. A pumpkin creme caramel/custard creme... Trust me, you will love this. I will share the recipe for this incredible dessert later this week.
Thank you for visiting me today. I hope you enjoyed my fall home tour and have left feeling a bit inspired. I am the last tour today, so be sure to visit Kim Power Style tomorrow for more fall inspiration.
Wishing you a lovely autumn season..
I live you with this:
"Fall... the time when everything burts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale."
