I'm so happy to be participating in the Canadian Bloggers Fall Home Tour today! If you're visiting here for the first time, Welcome!
My fall decor, along with my decorating style in general, tends to be quite minimal and decidedly, Scandinavian in feel. I've added some subtle fall touches and, although my house is always a work in progress, I'm really happy with how it has come together this season. Let's start this tour in the living room!
The pumpkin on the coffee table and the vintage canning jars on the mantle are probably the strongest nods to fall in this space. The jars have actually been up on that mantle after I haphazardly put them there when I brought them home from a yard sale this summer. I wasn't sure about keeping them there, but now that it is fall I think they work.
Some of you may remember that I have had my living room floor bare for quite some time. I've always had a hard time deciding on rugs, but I found this neutral wool one that feels just right for the cooler weather that is just around the corner (yikes!). I think this layer along with some knit pillows and throw really cozy the space up. The rose pink pillow is a knitting project I started last winter (I think!) and I asked my mom to help me figure out how to attach it onto an existing pillow cover. Apparently, my knitting wasn't good enough for her standards and she unravelled my whole square and redid it. It looks lovely now and along with another mint knit pillow I can bring my love of pastels into fall as well!
Okay, so this is a little sneak peek at a DIY wall hanging that I made especially for fall. I have yet to to post the tutorial here. To be honest, I'm not sure what y'all think of it. It's supposed to be a modern/abstract take on feathers or a bird's wing, but maybe I'm the only one that "sees" it. ;) It combines all my faves: natural wood, white, pastel and wool felt. I guess you could say it's fall, Nalle's House style.
My craigslist Bertoia diamond chair is ready for fall with it's furry thow. The DIY number art propped up on the floor also works as fall decor since it reflects a combination of important dates for our family that are all in the fall.
Our kitchen is one of my favourite spaces in our home. I simply added a few pumpkins, gourds and seasonal fruit to trays and shelves. I tried to surprise the boys by using their wooden animals on the shelf, but they weren't that impressed with it. Apparently, I should have included airplanes. Who knew!? The pastel colours continue in here as well with a few hits of pink and mint green.
Hubby and I just finished the tile work in our mini mudroom (you can see it here), but I think I am most excited about that perfect pink colour I added to the little nook! Nalle, on the other hand, could care less.
Our dining room got a couple of new "art" pieces for fall. The first is a large scale wall hanging. I'll be sharing the tutorial on that soon. The second is simply a pinecone image that I superimposed on a blush pink background in photoshop. I quite like the blue and blush combination in this space.
A couple of pumpkins and another DIY wall flag are the fall decor in our front entry. The stem on that little pumpkin is great, isn't it?! My littlest picked that one out at the farm market.
Our front door/step is simply decorated with some mums and pumpkins. I tried to paint some craft store gourds in pink spray paint to use in the house, but the paint totally disintegrated the pumpkins and these were the only ones that made it! I also attempted to get a cute picture of the boys to end the tour, but the picture above is the best I got. LOL! I still love it!
I hope you've enjoyed taking a look inside our home and I am now off to decorate our home again. This time it's for the boys' paper airplane birthday this weekend!
Now head on over and check out all the other tours happening this week!
