French Country Farmhouse Fall Decor - A Fall Home Tour

This week I am thrilled to be participating in a week of fabulous Fall Home Tours!
Now, if you were paying attention yesterday, I accidentally hit "post" and so some of you (well, 37 of you!) saw my tour already. Whoops. Too many things going on right now with organizing these tours!!

We are sharing tons of inspiration for Fall Decor and Entertaining!  If you are joining from Hood Creek Log Cabin, welcome!

Fall Home Tour 2017

I was ecstatic when I found this antique goat cart this Summer and knew immediately that I would be filling it with pumpkins this Fall!

The Dining Room

I was inspired by cozy Fall evenings when I was setting this table.  

Except, it was 100 degrees the day I shot this picture! Ha!  Well, a little turn to the left with the AC made it more Fall-like in the house!

I used a tartan throw as my tablecloth.  I have a blanket problem, such that, I own too many.  But I use them for other things too- such as tablecloths!  Mini boo pumpkins pop against the blue plates.

This year my husband noted that I had a new-found love of the color orange.  I used to always hate orange - but starting with my Spring French Country table this year and now with my Fall French country table, I find that the oranges go so well with the French blues! They are the opposite sides of the color wheel, after all!

On the antique French buffet sits my beloved collection of velvet pumpkins.

I just love the colors of these pumpkins! The big blue pumpkin is new to me this year. 

I love the look of these pumpkins with the Spanish moss in this antique urn- the various textures in this picture are interesting!

The Kitchen

My woodland owls perched themselves on the kitchen island once again. 

The scent of sweet cinnamon pumpkin fills the air.

The owls are flanked by dried wheat bundles, antique transferware and Staffordshire dogs.   I suppose I should call this "French Country Fall with touches of English Country".  I noticed bits of antique English here and there.

This squirrel nut bowl stays out year round but these cute woodland napkins add an extra touch of Fall!

The squirrel guarding his nuts... I just love this nut bowl!

The Living Room

Touches of Fall are tucked into this antique secretary.

Sometimes I think about painting this antique English secretary - it would look very Swedish if I did!

In the living room, the scent of wood fire fills the air.  I love this Feu de Bois candle for the Fall and Winter!

I used freshly clipped olive tree sprigs on this year's Fall mantel.  Mini topiaries and pumpkins are perfect for this French country mantle!

 The dough bowl has been moved to the coffee table and is filled with heirloom pumpkins.  In previous years I have been using it as the centerpiece on my table, but I decided to switch things around and moved it here!

Chloé the cat decided to join the photoshoot.

I have my tea tray set out.  I have been thinking about my favorite pumpkin spice tea, although it is much too hot to serve today!

Another vignette of velvet pumpkins sits on top of this antique Swedish piece.

I just love the velvet corn!

At night, this room glows with candle light.  The candles are faux, but I love their timers - they pop on every night for 6 hours and provide nice ambiance at night.

...And back outside we go. A last look at my little goat cart! 

Thank you for joining me on my French country Fall home tour this year!

  1. Your home looks beautiful decked out for fall. The combination of the plaid blanket with blues and oranges on your table looks so pretty and fall like even if it was as hot as the devil as you took your pictures. You have a great collection of velvet pumpkins and they all look wonderful in your decor. Thanks so much for hosting the tour!

    1. I used to totally hate the color orange. I mean *hate*the color orange. I would never even buy clothes with orange in it. However this spring when I was at the flower market and Isaw some beautiful orange flowers... I placed it in my blue vase, I thought I should reconsider the color!!

  5. All beautiful! I always enjoy peeking into your gorgeous home. The orange does make a perfect fit with the French blue, especially in the autumn season. I like to mix in a little blue with the rusty colors of fall decor here. I'm slow to get moving but you are inspiring me this morning.

  7. Angelina,
    Your French country fall table is pure provençal with its vivid blues and oranges. Just think, next year you will be creating a Fall tablescape in your new French country home.
