I love the fall colours and the furnishings in our home were chosen to accomodate the changing seasons. Therefore oranges, yellows, rusts and golds will fit in quite well. I think these colours are warm and cozy and make our home feel that way.
This is at the top of the stairs as you enter the living room.
One of my good friends made this sweet pumpkin pillow from an old piece of wool.
It's one of my favorite things to put out for fall.
I changed out my pillows and throw on the sofa and also changed the items
on the tray on the coffee table.
I cut some dried Astible blooms to put in the vintage Dundee jar.
This table runner is a favorite. It is hand quilted and the colours are perfect for fall.
The 'dough' bowl is a reproduction and I filled it with faux white pumpkins,
dried sunflower blossoms and blue corn. The candle sticks are dark amber glass.
The dining room on a beautiful sunny afternoon.
I also enjoy scented candles that smell like vanilla, cinnamon, apple, and pumpkin this time of year. Lighting one of these makes the house smell so good - like I've been baking all day.
The sideboard and hutch.
I have found some small pieces of transferware which are in this antique cutlery tote.
I spray painted it as it was stained very dark. The ivory piece of fancy wood
peaking out was also dark stained. You can see the turkey plate I found this summer too.
This vintage cup and saucer were my mother's. The pattern is Royal Albert
Crown China. I love the dark blue with the rusty shades in it.
I tied some vintage linen napkins with brown crossgrain ribbon.
The maple basket is a reproduction made by New Brunswicker, Brent Rourke.
This is the table in the corner. I changed it up a bit with some blue and white
to carry over from the cup and saucer on the sideboard. The ginger jar
came from my grandmother's. It's very old but I don't know of it's value.
I found it filled with dried rosebuds which are still in it.
And finally, here is a view of our front deck from the front door. I took this
on Tuesday evening which was warm and balmy. The summer flowers are still
looking beautiful and I have added some fall mums and asters to the mix,
along with a faux pumpkin. The real pumpkins aren't on sale yet.
It's supposed to really feel like fall this weekend as the temperatures drop to the
mid-teens from the mid-twenties (and humidity).
Are you ready for it?
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
