Fall in the Family Room and a Giveaway

When I was a child, my mother loved the transitioning of the seasons, especially Fall. During this time of the year, she would make trips to the garden center and our local orchard, bringing in mums, apples and pumpkins. Our small home would be filled with the scents of the season as she made fresh apple cakes, fried apples, and pumpkin bread. Money was always tight, so she kept the decorating simple, using organic natural elements such as pine cones, dried flowers, feathers, apples, and pears. Without realizing it, I was learning to love simple, natural decor, and that was the theme for bringing Fall into the family room.

I’m so happy to be joining some talented ladies for the bHome Fall Home Tour today.

If you’ve come over from Lidy’s gorgeous home at French Garden House, welcome! This week’s tour is filled with beautiful homes offering stunning, inspirational Fall decor, and our tour sponsor is Plush Pumpkin, so be sure and read all the way to the bottom to see the other homes on the tour, as well as enter the incredible Plush Pumpkin giveaway!

We spend a lot of time in the family room, and when it comes to decorating for the different seasons, I like to keep it simple and easy.

Adding a few touches of Fall to enhance the room, rather than overwhelm it, works best for me, especially in a room that we do a lot of living in.

The coffee table is a perfect place to change out the decor for a new season.

Our ottoman coffee table is a large piece, so it was easy to display some breathtaking velvet pumpkins from Plush Pumpkin.

I like to call these velvet pumpkins “heirloom pumpkins” because they’re works of art that can be passed down to the next generation.

They are the perfect pièce de résistance in any room, and I can’t wait to bring them out each year. They make a perfect foundation piece for Fall decorating.

An architectural capital, turned upside down, showcases a giant velvet pumpkin with smaller ones scattered around it. Tucking in bits of dried hydrangeas and greenery are the finishing touch.

It’s amazing what you can find in your yard, with clippings from your own shrubs and trees making the best fillers.

One of my most treasured pieces is an antique French attendance board that came out of a French Catholic orphanage. It’s well over 100 years old, dating to circa 1860.

It has small slips of paper that slide into slots with the little children’s names written on them. Many of them are still intact.

On each side are a pair of heavy iron cherub sconces, and underneath is a table that holds my collection of processional crosses. I didn’t want to do anything elaborate here, just a simple nod to Autumn.

Using a vintage Italian compote bowl, I layered it with dried hydrangeas, greenery, and a few faux pumpkins. The golden pumpkins compliment the gilding in the church board perfectly.

Our mantel stays mostly the same throughout the year, displayed with a few antique altar sticks, an antique French clock, and a few of my nativity sheep collection.

For Fall, I added an oak leaf garland that I made from the leaves of our big oak tree, and randomly placed a few luscious velvet acorns in different sizes throughout.

I adore these large mushrooms from Plush Pumpkin, they are so opulent and look marvelous against the rough texture of the oak leaves.

The finishing touches in the family room was changing out the throw pillows to a gorgeous dark gray velvet, adding a soft throw in shades of cream,lavender, and purple, and an exquisite beaded pillow with lavender accents.
