Fall Farmhouse Tour ~ Part One
Welcome to my Fall home tour! As a blogger, I love this time of year because there’s a lot of online parties to join. Today I’m celebrating Fall Home Tour week organized by Brenda at Cozy Little House. I enjoy seeing what my fellow bloggers are up to … there’s so much creative talent to inspire and motivate! I do hope you’ll visit my fellow bloggers’ home tours listed at the end of this post. But for now, here’s my Fall farmhouse tour.
A simple DIY Fall wreath greets you at the front door, setting the stage for the autumn season. I’m not a big decorator when it comes to Fall … I think that’s because I’m saving up my decorating mojo for Christmas!
Inside, a few new pillows bring fall color into my family room. I still have my burlap swag curtains in place, paired with Roman shades to add privacy in the evenings. I get a lot of questions about my big wall clock … I found it at Hobby Lobby.
My Fall pillows are from Home Goods. I love these because they’re the perfect size for my sectional, and they come in pairs for just $25 (so just $12 each). Unzip the covers to wash them. They’re soft and cushy, too.
Above the sectional, I added metal letters that spell “FALL”, layering them atop a tin ceiling tile.
I simply hung the letters from a thick piece of twine, using wooden clothespins to keep them in place. You can find the metal letters at Hobby Lobby. They were half price when I found them!
On the coffee table, a simple Fall vignette consists of oak leaves tucked into a vintage bottle.
Since I have a few blue pillows, I added a few touches of blue accents with wooden balls I found (also at half price) at Pier One. I love finding things on sale, don’t you?
Vintage books complete the look of my Fall vignette. When in doubt, decorate with books! They add color and they go with any style decor. You can’t go wrong!
My family room bookcase is filled with vintage books in varying colors.
A simple white ironstone bowl sits on top filled with colorful leaves.
Early Fall flowers add additional color in the room. I like using natural touches in every room.
With just a few quick touches, my farmhouse family room is ready for the autumn season.
I kept things fairly simple in my dining room too …
A bowl of over-sized faux acorns on the dining table echo the earthy colors of my bamboo script rug underfoot. Yellow flowers in a stone crock add a pop of Fall color.
In the corner, my dining hutch is filled with pieces from my white ironstone collection.
Zinnias from my garden add sunny color.
Two of my favorite collectibles … white ironstone and brown vintage bottles, make for a great Fall vignette. A floral spray gets tucked inside the pitcher for easy decor.
On my dining buffet, colorful mums take center stage in a Harvest basket.
Our local garden center was selling these baskets for a few dollars, and since the mums fit inside perfectly, I couldn’t resist taking one home.
A pretty yellow Zinnia from the garden takes refuge in one of my dirty little bottles.
A bright orange Zinnia complements one of my vintage aqua bottles.
Can you tell I have a bit of a fetish for old bottles?
My dining room centerpiece is just a white ironstone bowl filled with faux acorns. I don’t believe seasonal decorating has to be fussy … sometimes less is best.
I recently shared some of my kitchen’s fall decor.
A colorful mum, a few ceramic pumpkins are all that’s needed, along with burlap-wrapped flower pots sitting on the windowsills above the kitchen sink.
In a couple weeks, I’ll share the rest of my Fall farmhouse tour!

So pretty! I love how you’ve used those sweet fall colored flowers to add touches of the season.
How lovely! I love the colors you have chosen…your charming pillows and natural elements…and I need some fall leaves in an old bottle now! Thank you for sharing!
Everything looks so fresh and pretty! There are so many items I love, not the least of which is the dining room rug.
I enjoyed taking a peek into your lovely home and look forward to seeing more soon 🙂
Everything is just so lovely! Love the simplicity of it all and I’m so jealous that you can cut flowers from your garden! Love that mum-filled harvest basket. And those FALL letters have me thinking a trip to Hobby Lobby is in my near future!
So happy to be sharing our Fall homes on this tour together!
Such a happy, charming home all ready for fall! Enjoyed the tour. Xo, ~julie
Hi Jennifer, I am visiting from the tour! I love your home–it is simple, elegant and so inviting! Blessings, Cecilia
So pretty! Love your beautiful home!!
Your home always looks so pretty, Jennifer. I love your fall banner and that harvest basket is the sweetest! I wouldn’t have been able to resist it either. 🙂
Hi Jennifer, I was just looking over your crusty bottle blogs & had to chuckle for I have a collection of the same exact ones. Mine are courtesy of the hubby’s occupation of “playing in the dirt”, & being on job sites especially in Chicago & finding them for me in a dig. His team comments that instead of flowers I get a boxes of dirty old bottles….I also get some really unique rocks/boulders too…for a our landscape …lol. I’m thinking of reworking my curio cabinet to just have a shelf of them & backlit at night for a pretty blue, Aqua, & amber glow….but I think a few will sport flowers some wildflower too now….
Oh I forgot to add I love your ironstone collection…..I wish he’d find some of that for me…. 🙂
Hi Jennifer, your home looks sooo awesome!!!! Happy Fall!!!
Everything, and I mean everything, is just perfect!
I pinned the FALL letter idea for me to do with letters for Christmas on a screen. I just love the size of those letters.

Lovely home decorated beautifully for Fall! I’m so glad you joined the home tour. I’ve been trying to decide what I want over my couch. Now I know! I want a cool ceiling tile that I can decorate for the seasons and mirrors. 🙂
