Fall touches – my dining room

My dining room is a fun room to decorate. I love adding touches of the season to that room because that is where we eat every night, and we can enjoy the space. I again went very simple this year. I wanted the room to have the feeling of fall, but not just be a fall room. So here are some fun touches I added this year to my space.

I added some fall dishes and pumpkins to the inside of my hutch and added some pumpkins on my small cabinet and dining room table.

I love adding pumpkins to the tops of candle sticks to add some height and interest. I took my apple pie tin from my kitchen and put it on my cabinet and drew a pumpkin sketch for my picture frame. All I did with the basket is added two white faux pumpkins.

I wanted a very simple tablescape this year. We eat at the table every night, and I didn’t want something too tall like a big floral arrangement. I found this cute pumpkin tea pot a few years back. The green on the tea pot went perfect with my green candles I had in my hutch. I took out my cake stand and added a porcelain pumpkin on top. I love the orange and green combination for fall.

I just added a small white pumpkin to my wreath and the room was finished.

There have been years when I have draped leaves and wheat and you name it everywhere, but as I have grown more into what makes me feel the most comfortable I have decided that for me simple is the best approach. I feel that small touches in a room make the greatest impact.  I can see and enjoy the pieces I have without having things look too cluttered.

I'm Erin, a busy mom of three, chauffeur, cook, housekeeper, and wanna be decorator. I love old movies, good books, and a daily trip to Lowes. We have recently bought a new home...one we are fixing up and changing everything. This blog is to record our renovating journey. This is not the first house we have done. Actually, it is our third. My husband and I love a project. Any project. We both love working on our home, have the same taste, (which is great), and love working and re purposing things on our budget. We can show you how to put together a high end and creative look without breaking the bank. Taking something old and recreating it into something new and exciting for any room is my passion. Hope you enjoy this decorating journey with us!
