Fall Dining Room & Living Room Tour

| | | |

Over the past few years I’ve moved away from all-out decorating for a new season. And I’ve moved toward more simple and subtle changes in my decor. It’s fun for me to add larger pieces to my decor collection instead of a bunch of smaller items.

So, this year I didn’t re-decorate too much for fall. But I did use my already large faux pumpkin collection and some of my favorite warmer tones and cozy textures to add some autumn vibes around the house.

For the most part these changes are in the living room and dining room. I shared that I’m planning to give the dining room a makeover in the coming months in my home goals post. But even though it’s not 100% how I’d like it, I’m still decorating in the progress stage.

Fall in the Entry Way

Oh and I added a few touches in the entry way as well. Let’s take a closer look!

I took a chance on these faux hydrangea stems that were so much cheaper than my favorites from Pottery Barn. When they arrived I wasn’t sure they would work because they were smashed flat. But once I pulled them out of their packaging, they fluffed up pretty easily and look good!

There’s 5 stems in the bunch, so they really filled out the vase for less than $20!

I even put some blue hydrangea stems on this side table. They are perfect for an inexpensive pop of fall color in my new ceramic vase! Everything else is from years ago and no longer available. The art print is from my Christmas decor collection, but I loved it so much I left it up all year long. 😉

Fall Dining Room Table

I did get a new plaid table cloth for my new-to-me dining table and some rust colored napkins with copper chargers and napkin rings. These would all be great for hosting Thanksgiving.

Chinoiserie pumpkins

In the middle of my table is my latest fall craft: chinoiserie pumpkins. I shared the DIY chinoiserie pumpkin tutorial here!

Fall Decor in China Cabinet

I had fun adding some of my fall decor reserves to my new china cabinet from my grandmother’s home. I look forward to finding pieces to add to it in the years to come.

Pear Platter and Fall Decor in China Cabinet

The pear platter in the middle is something I bought right after I got the china cabinet for the sole purpose of displaying it there. It’s a Miss Mustard Seed replication (that she licensed) and I love how it looks in my dining room. (Hint: you’ll see these colors in my dining room makeover)

Velvet Pumpkins for Fall

Oh and I bought these beautiful velvet pumpkins. I guess I did add a few new items to my collection. Ha! I love the bust planter I’ve had for a while now.

Fall in the Living Room

Then in the living room I added my usual decor with my pumpkin and hydrangea centerpiece to my built-in shelves.

And just added in a few more pumpkins for good measure. 🎃

I have had the candlesticks on my mantel since last Christmas. I loved them and never took them down! Then I swapped out my bay leaf topiaries with some olive topiaries I’ve had for years.

I added a favorite faux pumpkin to the mantel and this new wood chain decor and called it done! The horse art on our Frame TV has been up there since summer and I didn’t think it needed to be changed since I still like it!

I wish the candlesticks weren’t sold out. I got them from Target last Christmas and hopefully they will come back!

Fall decor in the living room

The back corner of the living room is filled with my favorite new purchase of the season: my large artisan vases and maple leaf stems.

All of my throw pillows are several years old. I wasn’t going to buy any new pillow covers this year, but when I saw these beautiful cable knit pillow covers on clearance, I had to get a couple. But they haven’t come in yet.

Fall in the Kitchen

Navy Fall Printables in the Kitchen

Then as for the kitchen, you already saw my fall printables I used in this corner of the kitchen. Everything else basically looks like it did when I did my kitchen reveal. You can check out that posts here! I’ll be sure to add a lot of fun decor for Christmas.

I hope you enjoyed my little fall home tour. I can’t believe it’s already fall honestly, which is why it took me so long to add my decor. Ha! It snuck up on me. Can you believe it’s already almost the end of 2021??

    1. Hi Melanie, we actually don’t have a frame around our frame TV. It’s just the navy wall color painted behind it, then the trim that was already there for the fireplace. But I’d love to either buy a frame or make one. The frames I really love are too big to fit between the space of the TV and the trim. And I don’t really want one of the modern/skinny ones. So, I guess DIY it is! It’s on my list to do sometime next year. 🙂

  1. Everything is beautiful. Is the “Christmas” print in your dining room still available? I love it! Thank you for sharing your ideas and printables!
