You’ll see some today (linked at the bottom of this post) and each day more and more links will be added, so be sure to come back for more amazing fall home tours!
Fall Home Tour….My Dining Room
Fall is my favorite season by fall. Something about the crisp air and beautiful foliage puts me in a great mood. Fall also makes me think of warm meals with family and friends. The dining room is the area of my home that I wanted to focus on. My goal is a welcoming, pretty and simple feel for this room.
I chose copper, black, brown and a white as my color scheme for my dining room. I wanted it casual and inexpensive. I painted the inside of a copper-colored charger plates with chalkboard paint. I thought they could be used to create artwork or table seating.
With two small kids it would be silly to have expensive or fragile decorations on the table. I use pumpkins that I picked up from the dollar store. The vase is a mason jar wrapped in washi tape.
I place strips of burlap down the center of the table to act as a table runner. Nothing fancy.
I used painted magnolia leaves strung on a tree branch to decorate one wall. I love how simple and pretty it looks against the white wall.
I also use grey paper pinwheels and a wreath that I constructed out of beans for decorate another wall. My goal was to have simple colors combined with interesting textures. All the materials were things I either found in my home or yard. Paper, leaves, beans and burlap made this room come together.
Thanks for coming by, Carmody
