Welcome To My Fall Home Tour
We will start today’s tour in the entry area, where you can see almost the entire house as you enter the front doors.
When planning the farmhouse, we decided on a modern, industrial style with a laidback timeworn appeal. The farmhouse is based on neutral colors of white, grey, and black. This allows for seasonal pops of color.
Along with the pops of green, rust, orange, and blue, you’ll notice many textures that give the space a warm, cozy feel.
Farmhouse Entry Home Tour
As you enter the home, you are immediately in the living area. This vaulted space includes an entry table, and my workstation layered with creative displays.
The vintage gas station light illuminates the old ceiling tiles above the doorway, enhancing the industrial vintage feel.
The oversized entry rug provides ample space for guests to enter.
The entry table and surrounding area are filled with budget-friendly DIY Projects that help to create a unique fall decorating style.
The unique deconstructed chair was a project from a few years ago. I still want to tackle another chair but I’m still recovering from the real truth lessons I learned during this project.
The thrift store lamp project is still one of my favorites. The lamp looks so much like my inspiration photo, but by scouring thrift stores, it was created for a fraction of the cost.
In addition to these projects, I’ve added two craft ideas to the entry table. Talk about crafting something for almost nothing; you’ll want to check out the sweet gum ball stems and the Corn Stalks Topiaries, which are foraged.
The bedroom barn door is a perfect place to display another recent project, the DIY Preserved Magnolia Wreath.
My desk is on the other side of the door, where you will find me most days as I research new projects for the website.
The desk is a repurposed dining table with many vintage and slightly worn office supplies, such as a typewriter and rotary phone.
The desk chair is also an antique but has an updated chair cushion.
You can view the industrial loft area from anywhere in the entry and living room.
We spend most of our evenings in the loft because it’s our home’s entertainment area.
Last year I shared this tour of the loft decorated for fall.
Living Area Fall Home Tour
During the daytime, this is work central. That is, unless I’m in the greenhouse or my workshop.
Since my desk is adjacent to the living room, I spend much of my work time between the desk, the sofa, and side chairs.
The living room is also filled with budget-friendly projects, fall crafts, and slightly worn finds that sit harmoniously within the space to give the room a cozy feel.
The side table is my #1 Industrial transformation, and the stationary box on top is a trash to treasure transformation of an old silverware box.
The neutral sofa allows for a mix of decorative pillows, including a scrap fabric craft project from last year.
Coffee Table Centerpiece
The large repurposed coffee table was found while the farmhouse was under construction and is a treasured find. The reclaimed barn wood and industrial metals provide a patina-rich focal point for the living area.
I wanted a centerpiece made using natural elements for fall, so here’s what I did.
A favorite antique wooden bowl holds a bed of corn stalks and husks as a base for the centerpiece.
Then I added a bundle of fall stems to add some color. However, the main focus is the three natural gourdes, which are nestled into the florals and corn stalks.
Farmhouse Kitchen Home Tour
Next, let’s move into the farmhouse kitchen. Here you will see the play on textures that help to keep a neutral home from looking blah.
The brick backsplash is a welcome break from the white shiplap walls. Although the brick is neutral in color, there is enough contrast to draw attention to the wall.
DIY Kitchen Island
The DIY kitchen island adds a pop of color since it was repainted last summer. The muted green color was a mix of several shades to compliment the original chippy paint on the repurposed pantry door.
The 6 x 7-foot island center is filled with vintage amber bottles for a fall vignette. This also allows plenty of workspaces to remain around the ends of the island.
Amber bottles are a relatively inexpensive way to add a warm glow to your home for fall. You can see 15 more ways to decorate with Antique Amber Bottles for Rustic Fall Decor.
The vintage toolbox was one of my first purchases after building the farmhouse. It has occupied a spot on the island ever since. However, it is always filled with new and interesting thrifted finds.
The pantry door is a repurposed screened door, but instead of a screen, it now has a chalkboard and magnet board.
Its angled position is a focal point of the entire kitchen.
Storing collectibles on open shelves is one great way to add vintage charm to a modern kitchen.
Bespoke concrete countertops and an apron front farmhouse sink also add to the authentic farmhouse charm.
Dining Area Tour
Next on the home tour is the dining area. Adjacent to the kitchen, it’s a convenient spot to store copper pots and dishes.
The DIY plate rack is filled with vintage breadboards, french copper, rolling pins and more.
Dining Table Centerpiece
Y’all know that I love setting a seasonal tablescape. However, the centerpiece vignette is my second favorite to create when I’m not adding dishes.
Here I’ve combined a vintage French cheese board with crocks, pumpkins, heirloom salt & pepper shakers, and fall florals to warm up the table for fall.
The rustic chippy church pew has traveled with me from house to house and I always find a spot for it.
A more recent thrift store find is the folding bench. Always look for buried treasures while thrifting. A little white paint brought this dull $10.00 bench to life.
The entire dining area is filled with thrifted finds that are budget-friendly options for decorating your home. You can see more tips for decorating with cheap vintage and thrifted finds here.
Guest Bedroom Tour
Finally, I wanted to share a brief tour of the guest bedroom.
This room has been updated for fall with a vintage quilt that was a recent yard sale find for only $5.00.
The lovely colors in the quilt sparked a couple fall DIY projects.
First, I wanted a throw pillow to add to the bedding and decided a Scrap Fabric Pumpkin Pillow was just the ticket. The pumpkin colors were inspired by the yard sale quilt and added to the stylish, cozy feel to the bedding.
Finally, the DIY Dollar Store Leaf Wreath I recently shared is the icing on the cake. The room is now inviting and warm with pink, brown, and burgundy touches.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the farmhouse home tour today. These tips will help you to create an affordable and timeless style within your home. When you trust your judgment, your home will truly reflect you and your family.
