Easing into Autumn Decor

Hi everyone!

I have discovered an unusual side effect from being a  farmer this year. My whole perspective regarding things as simple as my home décor has changed. The months and seasons are more accurately reflected in my home according to what is going on at the farm at the moment.

While so many are filling their homes with beautiful autumn leaves and other pretties, I am focusing on what is being harvested at the moment. Weird huh? LOL

As far as September is concerned, we are still harvesting tomatoes, peppers, squash, eggplants etc. Also, this is the time of the year that all the tree fruit is really producing their bounty!

Although we don’t have any fruit trees on our farm (would love to get some in the future!) we have many local farmer friends that are loaded with them right now! And one of the amazing benefits of knowing so many local farmers is that we all like to help each other out when one has a huge bounty of something that we don’t have.

So, instead of jumping right into full blown autumn décor I am letting nature guide the way.

Some faux apples and pears are just the right touch at this moment.

An old dresser drawer picked up at a flea market this past summer holds things nicely on the shelf.

Add the woven texture of the vases. A couple of interesting candle sticks.

A simple harvest shelf. Slowly adding the rich tones of Autumn.

Since it is officially Autumn now, I will slowly be incorporating some more Fall details. I am having fun doing some add ons here and there. Taking my time and enjoying decorating. I guess the fact that I haven’t really done any home decorating in months make me appreciate doing it now.

And since this week we will be adding pumpkins, mums and corn stalks to our markets it makes me want to add those to our home as well.

Thank you for stopping bye and have a wonderful day!
