Welcome Fall Home Tour

Hello and welcome! It’s a great day to stop in to Chatfield Court because today is the first day of our fall tour, the Welcome Fall Home Tour. Over the next 4 days, 16 talented bloggers will open up their homes and share ideas and inspiration on how they welcome fall into their own homes. Make sure you read to the end of the post to find the links for today’s participants.

 

There’s so much to see today, so grab a cup of coffee and let’s get this tour started with our little cottage all dressed for fall. Enjoy!

We just finished phase one of a redo in the sunroom so I had fun adding a few simple fall touches in the newly reconfigured space. I usually decorate with traditional fall colors, adding in a little orange, but decided to try something different this season.

The living room also had a little redo this year (here and here) so it’s like I’m decorating a new space. It’s amazing what a new paint color and simple curtains can do for a space. 

I actually kept it really simple and used most of the same pillow covers that were out all summer. I just added a pop of gold, a cozy throw and some fall flowers and called it done. Super simple.

As usual, I added a lot of natural elements. Apples, fresh flowers and even branches from the yard help to add that fall vibe to the cottage. Decorating your home for fall doesn’t always have to be about pumpkins.

Just like the sunroom and living room, the kitchen and dining are also underwent a makeover since last fall. I’m still loving the black casement windows that I tackled this year. It was a time consuming project but the results are better than I could have imagined.

The kitchen/dining area has become my favorite space to decorate. I love to change things around. The hubs doesn’t love it but it makes me happy.

I always switch the bedding when the seasons change but I don’t really worry about adding fall touches. This year, though, I decided to add a bit here and there. I recently shared the master bedroom and 5 tips to create a cozy fall bedroom with crisp white sheets, fresh fall flowers and lots of texture with throws, blankets and a knitted stool. We can’t do a whole lot in here, it’s just so small, but it’s just enough to give it that cozy, fall vibe.

I love how the cottage feels all decorated for fall. In the short time we’ve been here it’s become my favorite season to decorate. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and touring our little cottage.

The next stop on the Welcome Fall Home Tour is Laura, from Duke Manor Farm. Stop over to check out all of her fabulous fall inspiration. After Laura you can head to Cristina’a, Remodelando la Casa,  beautiful outdoor patio and finish up at Jessica’s, Honey n Hydrangea, beautiful fall florals.

    Love all of the natural elements you used. The freshness translates to every space in your lovely home. And of course, your kitchen window is my favorite in the history of ever. Happy Fall. Susie from The Chelsea Project

    Your cottage is just amazing. I love every new thing, every change that you do. Your home is what I strive to accomplish in my own and our tastes are so similar, you can do no wrong in my eyes. Still looking forward to seeing the reveal of the new bath and closet. Finding that space and incorporating it into your small square footage is a design miracle.

      Awww, best comment ever. Thanks so much Pat, you made my day. ๐Ÿ™‚ The bathroom and closet are coming along, slowly. We had some major plumbing issues (old house) but hopefully we’ll get that all squared away by the end of this weekend. Yay! I’m so looking forward to using my new powder room (and cleaning up the construction mess). Thanks for stopping in.

    Love your clean simple decor for fall. I may need a decor intervention…once I get started can’t seem to quit until there is a lot out! Need lessons from you ๐Ÿ™‚ Still, I find fall decor warm and cosy. I usually keep things white and off white except from October through December when color gets a field day.

      Wednesday,October 11, 2017 / 12:37 am

      Thanks so much Jillian! Decorating the cottage for the seasons has been a learning experience. I’m not sure I am quite where I want to be but I’ll figure it out. ๐Ÿ˜‰ That’s great that you go with color from October through December. Best time of the year to let the colors fly. (Sorry this is so late. I thought I replied to everyone but it is not showing up on the blog).
