In our family room fall home tour, I’m sharing simple ways of mixing seasonal accents with our everyday decor. I’ll show you how to welcome the fall season with simple dried grass arrangements, dried gourds, and lots of warm wood tones. As a bonus I’m also sharing views into the adjoining breakfast room.
I’m so happy to be participating in the Bloggers’ Best Fall Home Tour, hosted by my friend Kelly of The Tattered Pew. This is a five day tour with a new group of bloggers joining in each day inviting you into their homes.
I’m jumping into the tours on day four, following my sweet friend Cindy of County Road 407. Cindy not only entertains us with her clever wittiness, but always has the best decorating solutions.
You’ll find all the blog links for the entire week at the end of this post. Please check back tomorrow for the ones going live on Friday.
Family Room Fall Home Tour
I’m focusing mostly on decorating with natural elements and neutral colors in the family room fall home tour. You’ll find lots of easy ways to add all the fall feels to your everyday decor.
Fall Mantel Styling
The fall home tour starts with the mantel. If you read my post Easy Ways To Transition Into Fall, you may notice a few changes on the mantel. I’m switching out the fresh flowers for dried grass bundles in my every day thrift store vases.
I think the texture and color of bunny tail grass is pretty all on its own, so I’m not adding any other embellishments to the arrangements.
For contrast in color, I’m adding a small black clay vase with dried red sorghum next to my sunflower watercolor. On the other side I have a scattering of wood acorns, and one of the faux pumpkins from my post Three Easy Faux Pumpkin Makeovers.
Fall Coffee Table Styling
On the coffee table are more of my everyday accessories with the addition of the dried gourds. Instead of buying something new, I’m borrowing a wood salad bowl from the kitchen to display the gourds in.
It’s funny how everyone that sits on the sofa can’t seem to help picking up the gourds to shake the seeds inside. I think it’s our inner child like tendencies coming out.
After months of shopping my local antique mall, I finally found some cute brass candle sticks. I’m still looking for a few more to use in fall and winter tablescapes.
Don’t you love the contrast of color between the brass and the navy book covers? I’m trying to bring in more shades of blue into the family room and interesting books are an easy way to add color.
No matter what season we’re celebrating, I love having fresh plants on display, because they bring energy into the room. Our newest plant family member is a Baltic Blue Pothos in a rustic terra cotta pot. Wish me luck with this one. 😉
More pops of blues and grays come into play with pretty pillow covers. In addition to color, these patterns help to break up all the dark brown shades around the room.
Fall Breakfast Table
The breakfast table arrangement is a combination of chaste tree pods from our yard, plus crocosmia pods and two types of millet that I picked up in the grocery floral department.
Bright orange and green clippings in the seagrass wrapped glass are also from our yard. It’s a tropical plant called Mexican Fire Bush, which blooms in late summer here, and attracts hummingbirds like crazy.
A simple white pumpkin completes the centerpiece. Now how simple is that?
Styling Open Shelves For Fall
Styling open shelves for fall is easy, when mixing in a few seasonal additions with my everyday ironstone jars. Plaid cloth napkins help carrying over some of that navy color from the family room.
A pretty hazelnut wreath leaning against an ironstone plate repeats those warm wood tones that we love so much in the fall. To see how to make one, click on my post Easy DIY Walnut Wreath, and follow the tutorial.
A wicker pumpkin basket adds interesting texture as well as the dried sunflower from a late summer arrangement. Lastly is one more white pumpkin, because I just couldn’t resist.
Be sure to follow Thistle Key Lane on Pinterest, where the boards are up to date with seasonal inspiration just for you!
I hope you are enjoying our family room fall home tour. Up next on our home tour is Cindy at Cloches and Lavender. I’m always inspired with Cindy’s natural decor ideas, and I know you will love them too.
