A little while ago I shared our farmhouse fall entryway tour. It was full of rustic colors like burnt orange, brown and green. It was indeed the first fall decor we ever put out in this house.

Now I want to show you how the remainder of the main floor looks in its first fall decor rendition. It’s a little more subtle. A little less colorful.

I’ll have more fall posts coming soon, but I want to thank Rachel from Maison de Pax for hosting this tour. Rachel is the sweetest and I adore her house!

Also if you’re visiting from So Much Better With Age, welcome. Didn’t you just LOVE Jamie’s house?!

Without further adieu, welcome to our…

Farmhouse Minimal Fall Tour

Since I used most of the traditionally colored fall decor in the entryway, I kept the rest of the main floor a little more neutral. If you’ve been around here for long, you know I’m a neutrals girl. Even though I am an interior designer and can totally do color for other people, color is outside my comfort zone in my own house. Puzzling, I know.

You’ll notice the oranges carry into the dining room a bit from the entryway, but then fade out to more greens and pinks as you get into the living room.

In the living room, the only oranges are on the mantel.

I’m really looking forward to painting the fireplace vents black and changing out our floors for something a little more rustic. But it could be worse…I could have really ugly flooring and no fireplace, right?

the key to full garlands is layering in pieces

Decorating Tip: To get full looking garlands on fireplaces and shelves, first lay out a single garland. Then fill in gaps with sprigs of berries, twigs, faux eucalyptus and pinecones. Add a couple of faux antlers and pumpkins for fall. Make sure to step back occasionally to make sure each side is balanced. 

The kitchen I kept very simple because it’s such a utilitarian space.

For now that’s our fall decor.

But I know myself well. There will be tweaks, changes, additions.

And of course, you’ll be the first to know when I make those changes! 😉

  1. I love it! Especially the way you incorporated oranges with neutral colors and pink. I love that since I don’t love orange but I have lots of it for fall decor I’m trying to balance it out, though I never thought to use pink to do that. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Thanks, Anca. Pink seems to have snuck in as a neutral around here in the form of a very pale peach color. Lol. 🙂

  2. You are simply the best. I just really like your cozy ,yet uncluttered style of decorating. And I look forward to your emails each week. I’m currently looking for directions to make the big chunky shelf you have. I’ll find it eventually. Have a wonderful day!
