Fall @ Home - Dining & Living Room


Since Fall's officially here, I thought I'd do my annual Fall Home Tour. I started decorating for fall the last week in August, because I took some vacation and thought it would be a good time to get started. Needless to say, I have just now finished Fall Decor 2008 and as I was taking these photos it seems like there are some rooms with not much fall at all.

Today I'll post the Dining Room and Living Room photos and proceed to other areas of the house in the coming days. You can enlarge all photos by clicking on them.

This is the little wine buffet in our dining room. I especially love this white pumpkin...one of my favorites.

The dining room table. My zebra dishes are from Ballard Design.

Wider shot of the dining room. I collect pastoral engravings and oil paintings and most are displayed here. They remind me of growing up in the Midwest.

Here are the bookcases and mantle in the living room. I did put some fall leaves and berries on the mantle and tried a collection of pumpkins up there, but I liked it better without them.

Next up is the sofa and coffee table. The room isn't wide enough to get a very good head-on shot. I also love those three white pumpkins on my coffee table. I got them at Hobby Lobby a couple years ago.

I am in the midst of getting window treatments in the living room, and I am also into decorative throw pillows, as you can see. The monogrammed pillow and the two blue ones were made by my window treatment fabricator. The two damask pillows are from HomeGoods.

As a side note since I mentioned window treatments... I have a wonderful fabricator here in Atlanta that comes to my house and brings dozens of fabric sample books with her. It saves me from running to fabric stores, getting samples, bringing them home to match, and then running back to buy the fabric. She's wonderful and has become a dear friend.
If you're in the Atlanta area and want her contact information, let me know.

I love this happy pumpkin kettle sitting on a zebra "suitcase" between the two leather recliners in the living room.
Tomorrow I'll show my keeping room (new window treatments in there) and kitchen decor.
Happy Fall, y'all!
