MODERN AND FRESH FALL TOUR


Hello, and Welcome!  If you're new here visiting for the tour, I'm so glad you're here!  I was so thrilled to be asked to participate in the Modern and Fresh Fall Home Tour by my blog buddy Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Company and Kristen from KFD Designs.  I will say it was a bit intimidating once I saw the list of amazing bloggers that were taking part.  I have so enjoyed all of the tours this month! 

I thought my turn to share would never get here!  This year, as I thought about "Modern and Fresh" decorations, my theme was mixed metals, natural elements, and a surprise pop of color here and there.  So, come on in and take a look around!  

I kept the porch SO simple.  My ferns were still going strong, so I just added some mums, lanterns, and pumpkins that I didn't paint, dip, stripe, glitter, monogram, stud, or carve. How's that for Modern and Fresh?  :)





In the entry I kept my made over thrifted lamps and added lots of metals and textures.  I borrowed the feather art idea from my friend Kim and layered that with the mirror over the dresser.



The mantel (see more here) got a big dose of unexpected green on some old shutters, along with more texture and mixed metals. Oh, and a disco ball. A disco ball is always good.



The built-ins didn't get much of a change, but some things that are always there naturally lend themselves to Fall...the lanterns, feather lamp, owl, and wood piece.


Anything looks better under a glass dome, right?  I love this little turtle shell that a dear friend gave me for my birthday one year.




I was inspired by an image on Pinterest to do a big vase full of sticks, and isn't that vintage plaid thermos just so fun?





On the blue dresser I switched out the white lamps for my favorite pinecone pair and added the best decor of all...things I found outside!



My green china cabinet likes to show off in the dining room.  You might have already seen an Early Fall Tablescape that I did a few weeks ago,



but for everyday I keep a few simple items on the table.  A faux Ikea sheepskin rug makes do for a runner, and I loaded up an old dough bowl with giant pine cones and pheasant plumage that my sweet neighbor gave me.  That may not be your thing, and I didn't think it was mine, but those feathers are just SO colorful and gorgeous-it was perfect to add to the mix!


In the kitchen, this guy wrapped up in a scarf to keep him warm, and the chalkboard wall got a simple new design.



For the table in the kitchen, I just got out some of my favorite things and piled them on.  This table is layered up...a plaid blanket, a burlap chevron runner, seagrass placemats, pizza peel, a wooden bowl, squash, and cattails!




Want to come over for dinner?

  30. I saw that mirror above your fireplace @ Pier I and liked it. Love the way you combined it unexpectedly with the green shutters. I remember a plaid thermos like the one you show from my parents' garage thrown in with camping gear. Just goes to show, be careful what you get rid of! Great fall tour, really enjoyedit.
