My dining room is my Fall room year round. I love Fall that much.
The ancient wallpaper is fruit themed with the colors of Fall. So when we moved in I wanted to continue my farmhouse tradition of having a Fall themed dining room. I painted the trim with 'Buckwheat' which was the color in my last house. It goes great with the wallpaper and the three cupboards and rocking chair from my beloved farmhouse.
The orange birdhouse, ceramic pumpkin and owl stay on the top of this cupboard year round.
My door is simple with a pumpkin wreath and my kitschy scarecrow doorknob hanger I can't resist putting out every year. Yeah, I know Santa is there but he stays in that chair year round!
I started with decorating my bench....sort of my pseudo mantel because I don't have one in this room.
And when my table is set for guests, it will look like this. I bought my Royal Worcester Evesham dishes about 30 years ago and that is when my Fall dining room theme began.
My front entryway is long and narrow but since I have to fill every space with something, I decorate it seasonally. The Indigo and burgundy color scheme carries the colors of Fall better than cranberry and pink!
At this past week's thrifting and Fall festival adventures I found this fabulous childs wooden chair, just splattered with paint, and the handmade pumpkin made from a burlap feed sack. I have seen tutorials all over my favorite blogs and Pinterest and I even have the materials to make this pumpkin but it was just too easy to pick one up at the festival and have instant decorating! The bunny was a great find a few years ago at a different Fall festival.
The berry basket is a summer find filled with faux grapes and grape leaves and the mason jar is filled with pine shavings from my daughters yard. The vintage coffee pot is one of my treasures from 30 years ago.
On my front porch I added my large, rusted metal pumpkin that is pierced for light to glow through, and my owl I bought last year at JoAnn Fabrics. The vintage white enamelware pot is filled with twigs from my daughters yard. She lives in a cottage in the country...I live in the village!
Not too bad for a half hours work on a Sunday morning spur of the moment whim!
