Fall In My Farmhouse Dining Room

| | | | |

Come see my farmhouse dining room decor with pops of natural splendour!Fall decor in a farmhouse style dining room.Pin


The whole time that I was working on my dining room makeover, I was thinking about how much fun I was going to have decorating it for the different seasons and holidays!  Do you have spaces in your home that you actually get excited about decorating?  {If you missed the reveal of my newly madeover dining room, you can see the before and after’s by clicking HERE.}

My K-I-S-S method of fall decorating came into play in a big way in this room.  Do you know what K-I-S-S stands for in the world of decorating?  Learn all about it right HERE.

I was able to use candle rings and twig wreaths to dress up the mirror and the stylish plates that are hanging on the shutters.  I wired a candle ring to a plain twig wreath for the mirror and then used Command Strips to hold each wreath all in place.

If I turn the camera at just a little bit of an angle, I get a great reflection of the other side of the room in the mirror.  Love it!  That’s one of the big reasons that I kept a mirror above this little chest, instead of replacing it with a chalkboard, when I gave the room its makeover.  Plus it adds quite a bit of extra light to this dark’ish room.

My vintage shelf, that hangs above the sideboard, used to be a fireplace mantel. Someone simply cut the side pieces off and then I added hooks to it.  Sometimes I hang decorative baskets from the hooks, but I thought would be too much for this vignette.  I made sure to load it up with nature inspired fall goodies though!

When I made my Fixer Upper style hanging lanterns, I had a feeling that they’d be a fun place to add seasonal accents too.  For fall, I dressed them up with a couple of fall colored plates and some cotton stems.  You can find the tutorial for making your own hanging lanterns displays HERE.

Using more of the K-I-S-S method of fall decorating, I left my dough bowl on the table and simply refilled it with all sorts of fall goodies.  If you have trouble knowing what to fill a dough bowl with or how to do it, I gave step by step directions HERE.

Let me pull the camera back a little to give you a better view of the room and layout.

    I think it’s great you included instructions on how to built the hanging lanterns. .no guess work involved

  2. Kathy Robers says:

    Where did you get that scale? I love, love, LOVE it. If you add a link, I will buy it from the link. Fall is my favorite season, and you knocked this seasonal decorating out of the ballpark. Did you do anything on the front porch?

    1. Here’s a link to the scale: https://paintedfoxhome.com/product/the-jilly-kay/ They’re a little pricey, but usually sell out quickly. This isn’t the only place that I’ve seen them, but it’s the only one I can find at the moment. Still working on the front porch!

  3. I love it all! Everything is beautiful. I bought lanterns for the display like yours. I can’t wait to finish them.

  4. Martha Miller says:

    Love the old fireplace mantel and the hooks! thinking about how I can do something similar in the entrance to my home!

  5. Beautiful, beautiful! Love your dining room so much!

  6. Kymberly Ryan says:

    Ohhhh….I adore that scale with the pumpkins! The plates with the little candle rings and wreaths are breathtaking-it’s all beautiful!

  7. So pretty, you are a great inspiration. Thanks for the detailed info.

  8. Just gorgeous, Suzie! I think I seriously need to adopt the KISS method!!!! I pinned your dining room last week – it’s just gorgeous!!!

  9. I think your K.I.S.S. method is genius! I too try to add seasonal decor into my existing decor. I LOVE your vintage shelf and Fixer Upper lanterns are amazing! I could move right into your home, Suzy! What party girls we are… 2 parties together this week! Talk to you on Friday!

  10. I love your vintage shelf and will be looking for one of those! I am making lanterns on barnwood left over from wedding decorations. I hope mine look as good as yours.

  11. What a bright and comfortable dining room! I love the tan colored lamp ~ so pretty! I need to get upstairs and bring fall down! Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. Suzy, I love everything about this cozy room. The fall touches are perfect as is your KISS method! So glad to be sharing along with you today!

    Thanks so much for sharing your farmhouse projects I have been given several cedar siding boards from a house built in 1901 and also a couple of door knobs and plates. My plan is to try to using these to make a hanging lantern project with the door knobs at the base for hangers and am looking for lanterns at present. Hope you don’t mind a copycat project.

    1. Hi Jean. That’s the whole reason behind this lil’ ole blog – I want to inspire you! Plus, I consider being a copycat the sincerest form of flattery! 😀 If you can, I’d love for you to email me a photo of your finished project.

  14. I am trying o get into the white pumpkin thing this year. I decided to ease into it use a mix of colors.
    Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  15. Just gorgeous as always! I guess it’s about time for me to think about pulling out my tubs of decor!

  16. Wow this is such a pretty set up! I love your centerpiece!

  17. Your dining room looks fabulous! I am loving that dough bowl , and the way you decorated it for fall. Simple, yet elegant.
