Farmhouse Style Fall Home Decorating Ideas

Sharing is caring!

As I’ve mentioned many times before, Fall is my favorite Season! I have such fond memories of my Mom & this Season & attending yearly art festivals, especially the Scituate Art Festival, which was this weekend (squeals with excitement). My Mom took art lessons the last few years of her life & I remember how happy she was when she came home from class. I have a picture she painted of me that she framed for my birthday & while it is obviously not perfect, it is perfect to me because she created it with her own hands especially for me. I will cherish it forever! Here is a pic of it:




I have recently downsized & have been trying to incorporate as many of my favorite things as possible without overcrowding the new space. I had fun finding new uses for things such as this wrought iron planter & hanger that used to be on my porch. I used it in my living room & love it! I put some cool squash that look like pumpkins to me in the hangers & added a fake white pumpkin in 
the planter with faux fall leaves & flowers.




I found this extra large frame at a yard sale for $5 & added chicken wire. I then used Americana Chalk Paint in a blue color to give it a pop of color. My new sofa hasn’t been delivered yet, but I plan to incorporate some blues. I may lighten the frame, not sure if it is too bold for me. But I made the Coffee Filter Wreath last year & love how it looks on the frame. I printed directly on burlap for the Gratitude banner.



This vignette is one of my favorites & while it is simple, it looks so pretty when you walk in the front door. I found this little bird cage 80% off at Michael’s & put one of my favorite owls inside & a berry wreath around it. I found the beautiful lampshade at Goodwill for $5.99! I showed the demijohn in a prior post that I decorated with twine. The buffet is a piece that I refinished with chalk paint.


For my coffee table I painted a serving tray & added berries and leaves with a hurricane globe. I found these cool moss balls also 80% off & simply placed them on top of my silver candelabra.


Next to the fireplace I put my hutch that was a craigslist steal for $35! I again refinished it with chalk paint. I added a fall banner, some scarecrows & various fall decor to the shelves including this 
great framed art from


I showed the fireplace mantel in a prior post, but here is a pic:


I placed my pumpkin topiary on the hearth along with this cute little chair with a burlap sack & mum. The little burlap sack is from Decor Steals-love that site!


Moving on to the dining area, I used this old tool caddy as a centerpiece & simply filled it with real pumpkins, squash & gourds. I decorated the bakers rack with some pieces that I have had for years. 

Over the table I hung an old window with my hydrangea fall wreath that I showed in a prior post.

In the kitchen I used an old pallet board to make the pumpkin sign,
placed sunflowers in blue mason jars in the window, and added a pumpkin to my thrift store scale that I picked up for $2.99. I am so in love with this rooster that I found for $5 at a thrift store. The colors are beautiful in the blue kitchen! I am blessed to have this incredible view as you see in the second picture. I can literally sit & stare at it forever!







I always keep a bowl of candy in the kitchen & believe it or not, it lasts now that it is just my son & I in the house. But, it is a nice treat if you need a chocolate fix.
I was so happy that the microwave is over the stove as it frees up so much counter space. I put together this little vignette with a quick & easy Fall Burlap Block, pitcher filled with hydrangeas & a cloche with a nest & pumpkin.
I wanted to cover the braker box & have had this scarecrow for years & thought he looked cute here.
