I’ve been a busy bee getting my home decorated for fall. This week I showed you details of my dining room table setting, my living room and front door area.
A big thank you to Janet from Shabbyfufu for inviting me and organizing this incredible tour.
It’s all been very exciting and almost too much take. I mean, like I mentioned in my last post, this house has never seen a fall tour before. Like ever. So it has to deal with a tour but also a fall tour AND it has to be show ready for Soft Surroundings and Romantic Homes magazine. That’s a lot of pressure for a little 80s house to take. But I think it can handle it.
Besides, she’s been renovating for months now for this.
So let’s get started on the tour, shall we?
Two things I wanted in my other house but didn’t get until now. Those two things completely change the look of the spaces.
This mora clock was on clearance at a Restoration Hardware outlet. I bought it the moment I bought this house. I love the metal but maybe one day I’ll get a real mora clock.
I decorated with a lot of purples and greens because I’m not a fan of orange. I wanted to see if I could decorate for fall using natural elements but not with the typical fall colors.
I think I succeeded. This linen tablecloth and napkins I purchased in France when I went in May for The Academy.
I also bought the matching linen apron. Such beautiful quality.
The seeded eucalyptus and heirloom pumpkins are favourites of my for fall too.
This mirror from Soft Surroundings and it’s part of their antique collection. It’s from France from the 1900s.
It’s super heavy and the real deal. The back showed lots of wear and looked like old book pages were glued to it.
I think it works perfectly in my dining room. LOVE it!
This gorgeous gold bar cart is also from Soft Surroundings. I use it for pies! A rolling dessert cart.
I have my favourite apple pie recipe on my blog but I’ll be posting my blueberry pie recipe soon.
I LOVE baking and making my own pastry is the best, I’ve been doing it since adolescent. It is an odd hobby but I love it.
I even did a candlelight dinner shot. Now it’s time to eat!
Before you leave, I wanted to give you a sneak peek of the powder room that is just down the hall from the dining room.
I haven’t shared this room with you yet so here is a glimpse of the finished room.
I got this Marie-Amalia mirror in small from Soft Surroundings as well. It’s the perfect touch!
I’ll share with you soon how I did this wall treatment and the design sources plus more before and afters.
Did you know Soft Surroundings also has clothing. I got this comfy Marina pullover, perfect for fall. I’m kinda obsessed with stripes.
I love the design of this sweater, it has rough edges, a nice longer length and I love the neckline. I got it in petites and it fits great.
Okay, so be sure to check out my fabulous ‘French’ friends.
So glad you were here for the tour and thank you for being one of my ‘lovely readers’!
