Falling for Vintage – Fall Home Tour

It may not feel like fall in your neck of the woods but the shorter days, chilly mornings, garden harvests, cooler evenings all point to autumn’s arrival here in western PA which means preparation for the countdown to my hibernation. I’m all set to warm things up with some fall decorating.  Fall is such a blessed time of year and I love being all cozy and comfy and more than any other time of year. Fall decorating helps me with the transition of summer fun to Christmas celebration.

Last week, I kicked off the fall decorating season by adding some new accents atop my vintage chicken coop.

The kitchen is all ready for fall on the top shelf of our open pantry. This pumpkin weighs in at a little over 16 lbs. according to the vintage scale. And a faux fall bouquet in a vintage tin adds more balance.

Our kitchen island consists of an old vintage dresser and the centerpiece is a basket filled with mums, purple cabbages, heather and squash. I added a vintage vice for a rustic touch.

On our dining room table, vintage bottles display dried cotton sticks and feathers. The table runner is simply wrapping paper.

The mantel in our family room is a bit of a challenge with the colorful curtains but gold, red and aqua including a vintage tea tin and blue mason jar paired with coordinating vases create a fun autumn theme.

Even the guest room whispers “welcome fall”…

And because the days are still nice enough to enjoy fresh fall air, I spruced up the patio daybed with new pillows and some pretty mums…displayed in a vintage something or other I confiscated from the barn.

Not only do I love the warmth that accompanies fall decorating, it’s fall scents that set the scene for a warm and cozy home, isn’t it? Pumpkins, cinnamon, wood burning, home cooking.
