Hey gang! Welcome to the Transitioning from Summer to Fall Home Tours hosted by Amber at Follow The Yellow Brick Home!
If you’re coming over from Beauty For Ashes, I’m sure you enjoyed Heather’s 5 easy (and beautiful!) steps to transition from summer to fall!
Now on to my tour! 🙂
Let’s start off in my dining room. I added warmer, earthier tones to my neutral decor to hint at the coming Fall.
One thing I discovered while I was decorating is that it’s hard to make it look like I’m transitioning to fall without it actually looking like fall. I avoided the obvious fall stuff (like pumpkins) and tried to ease into the warmer, fall-y colors without going overboard.
Warmer wood tones, a rusty scale, two copper tea pots, and a pop of color of sunflowers from my garden.
One thing I was ecstatic about is I actually remembered to incorporate my amber bottle collection into my (almost) fall decor this year. I’ve collected amber glass bottles for years now for the sole purpose of putting them out for fall, but guess what happened every year? Yep, I would totally forget about them until like December 1st when I would run across them and then kick myself for forgetting them yet again. Well not this year! They are out for everyone to see! 🙂
Love all my sunflowers growing this year! I’ve had people tell me that they are so perfect-looking that they don’t look real! What do you think? Would you have known that they’re real if I didn’t tell you?
On to my kitchen! If you’re a regular reader here, you know that I’ve just finished painting the cabinets and spent the last month and a half or so crying about it here because it was a ton of work and I painted them all by myself. I wanted to post the before and after pics here before I posted the pics anywhere else (they’ll be up first thing Thursday morning!), but it’s just too pretty not to share here. Yes, I’m in love with my kitchen – after all the work I put into it, I better absolutely adore the results! 🙂
More sunflowers! If you need some tips on how to keep sunflowers fresh, I got you covered here.
I have zinnias growing too! I mixed them in with some smaller sunflowers and put them into one of my oldest Mason jars for a bouquet on the eating bar.
Last but not least, my entryway!
I got a little crazy with the fall colors here. I even snuck in a dried bottle gourd. But no pumpkins, so it’s not fall decor, right? 😉
That’s it for my (not quite) fall home tour! Next up is The Tattered Pew, where Kelly shares her three easy (and beautiful!) steps to transition your decor from summer to fall!
