Welcome to Farmhouse1820 and our Fall Home Tour! I’ve decorated the dining room, the kitchen, and the den with little touches here and there of fall. The leaves are just starting to change here in the Hudson Valley and show off their autumnal beauty. I can’t help but feel energized by the vibrant hues and it’s these brilliant colors that beckon me to decorate for fall indoors. Welcome to the Farmhouse 1820 fall home tour!
I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll mention it again – I love fall, and I get weirdly giddy this time of year. The word change comes to mind simply because that word is used so much during this season. And, true to form, fall is all about change. Change of colors, change of routine and a new one to develop, change of temperature and change of decor. Earthy tones push out the summer brights, and it’s these tones that bring a little “at ease” to the craved calm of the season.
Sometimes, less is more, but when fall decor is concerned, the larger the grouping the better. Here in the dining room the brick wall is always the star of the show. It complements every table setting I display. This fall setting is no different. Mixing old with new, the leopard print chargers bring a playfulness to the antique ironstone dinner plates. Mixing old and new is always my MO, and really, why not. And with keeping with the tones, the tarnish on the silver pitcher not only compliments the leaves, but compliments my lack of polishing time as well. A win / win! I’m a fan of texture on texture, and the shape of plates is no different. Seen here with three different shapes, I say embrace the differences to bring chicness to the table. Hallelujah, Amen.
Look around your home for a container to house a fall grouping. As I always say, embrace the tarnish. This tarnished silver urn compliments the mossy green pumpkin and bright leaves. Mixing faux with the real deal, everything blends perfectly and the best part about this container is that it can be transported from room to room.
And speaking of the kitchen, the most utilized room in the house. Everyone can attest to this, so why not include this room in the tour. We’re very fortunate here at Farmhouse1820 to have a fireplace in our kitchen. It brings such warmth and open conversations, so while it’s still a little too warm to have a fire, why not fill the place with autumnal plants. The plants displayed here mean business and certainly pull double duty.
The den is the latest addition to the 1820. Added in the early 1900’s, one would question if this room was really an addition. But yes, yes it’s an addition and we’ve made a few enhancements in the short 7 years we’ve lived here. In this room the 6 foot square window is the star of the show, and it hasn’t met a house plant it didn’t like. Facing north, it is the perfect room for such autumnal plants to thrive and bring loyalty to the season. Mums, mums and more mums the remote control needs to navigate between the blooms to change the channel. But why even turn on the TV when you’re surround by such fall verve?!
