Vanessa's Fall Home Tour and Unique Ways to Decorate for the Season



Fall is definitely my favorite season! However decorating my home for Fall has always been a challenge. I do not like the typical fall colors in my home. I like light, airy pastels....


Most people do not use pastels to decorate for the Fall...but I like to decorate outside the box. 


I bring out the furs and chunky throws in whites and neutrals...nothing really unique about that. But they definitely add the warmth and texture without the bold colors.


I love to find branches that are just turning, so they aren't completely orange or yellow yet, but a softer burnt orange with the light green. And then of course white pumpkins. But one of my favorite things to use around the house in the Fall are the red or the brown pears. The color is so soft and muted and I just think pears are the cutest thing!





I love to find pumpkins that are the soft orange color or the grey/blue color. Unfortunately, it's too early here and I have not found any large pumpkins yet. 



I found these plates and loved that they had pink in them but still looked so Fallish! So it inspired me to search for accent pieces that had pink in them but still felt warm. 



I found several pillows in a soft, warm pink....and although I rarely use pink in my home, I loved that it was a unique way to use a softer color to decorate for Fall. 




I FINALLY found a rug that I love in my living room! After all the rugs...solid or patterned, light or dark...that I've tried in here, I realized that it was just the squareness of the rug I hated. I do hate symmetry and straight lines so...maybe that's why. Hmm. 




Aqua is obviously a color I love to use. Well it went so well with my burnt pinks and orangy-reds, and I even found a pillow that had all the colors in it!



I found this little wool rug while shopping for fall accents and fell in love! It went with the pillows that I had already found and I just so loved the pattern and colors in it! 




Many people don't think of using aqua and pink in their Fall color scheme. But I love to be unique, and I just love my soft, muted colors!








I really hope this inspires you to "decorate outside the box" and come up with unique ways to adorn your home for the season. 

xo,

Vanessa

    2. Hi Vanessa,

      I just discovered your blog. Also, a fellow blogger (inthewindowseat.com) - I reall admire your ability to combine tiny glimpses of color while still staying neutral and balanced. Well done!

      I have a small decor crush on your headboard...ok..a large crush. My style is French industrial/ farmhouse and your headboard is exquisite. Would you mind sharing your source?

      Thank you,
      Melissa

    1. Thank you so much! I'm relieved to hear it looks warm since my "minimalist" and "white everything" taste can make things look stark.

  6. So soft and very pretty! I love the textures with the white backdrop. Aqua is my favourite colour and that cabinet is gorgeous. Beautiful headboard too.

  7. I absolutely love your home Vanessa. And I too adore soft pinks and aqua. I am not a traditionalist when it comes to decorating, especially in the fall. I am lucky, and can find pink and aqua pumpkins once the season is in full swing, which should be in a few weeks. Last year Walmart had a great selection of real pink and aqua pumpkins :-) Thanks for sharing your lovely home and inspiring me.

  8. Your home is amazing! Just looking at these photos makes me want to go crazy and redo my whole house so that it looks this cool! Where in the name of heaven did you get those to die for pendants over the dining table. I've been looking everywhere for cute pendants, and they're hard to find!

  13. Most of homes are decorated by using fine colors and texture, furniture and lights especially when it comes in curtain. Good texture and proper display of an object is one way to decorate.

  18. Stunning! My husband and I are about to move into an 18th C. Farmhouse and I am on a mission to find a headboard just like the one you have featured in this tour. I have looked far and wide, but have yet to find anything that comes close! Where did you find the headboard? Do you have any suggestions about where I could find a similar piece? It's a must have for our guest bedroom! I notice that a number of other commentors have inquired about this piece as well. Thanks so much. -A
