French Fall Home Tour with Purple and Green (No Orange Allowed)

Welcome to my fall French home tour, with beautiful purple and green flowers.

French Fall Home Tour with Purple and Green large purple flowers.

Before we begin this tour, I’d like to thank my friend Rachel from Maison de Pax for having me. I’ve known her for about three years now and we hang out at Haven each year. We are French lovers (wait, we love French things we are not lovers) anyway let’s move on.

Welcome to Vancouver (AKA the Wet Coast), it’s just stopped raining long enough for me to take some photos outside.

This is my new-to-me house (Sweet Little Bungalow) and this is its first fall tour probably ever. There is still plenty to do for curb appeal outside but I’ve added some mums, white pumpkins (I  scoured the town and found odd ones here and there in little florist shops) and, of course, crocks (because I’m obsessed with crocks) holding florals that resemble vegetables. The salesperson at the garden centre I went to made sure to tell me not to eat them, they just resemble vegetables. Point taken although I was aware this wasn’t a grocery store.

(Side note: at the time this post was published, white pumpkins galore in every store. Of course.)

So let’s take a tour inside and I’ll show you how I decorated for fall without using any orange (because I’m not a fan) and instead chose purple and green, totally not fall colors or are they?

Welcome to the living room. The seating area by the window has a bit of a vaulted ceiling as you can tell. It’s a quaint little spot in my home.

I’ve been obsessing over this seeded eucalyptus this season. The soft green color is perfect with the white heirloom pumpkins.

There is a large wooden mirror on the fireplace mantel with wall sconces beside it.

I still have to fix this broken mirror but for now it adds character.

The little corner by the window has purple/blue hydrangeas from my garden. I clipped them this summer for my kitchen details post

Now let’s take you to the dining room where I’ve decorated my table with more purple hydrangea and a beautiful purple linen tablecloth I purchased in St. Emilion, France this year.

This is a tip that I stole from Heather Bullard from my trip to France, she used French yogurt jars to hold candles.

The French love their yogurt and most are sold in glass jars and it’s the best yogurt you’ll ever taste.

Anyway, I brought a bunch back (cleaned jars, not the yogurt) but I also found some French yogurt at my Whole Foods store.

I added epsom salts to hold the pillar candles.

I made a simple place card with a kraft tag, jute twine and a sprig of seeded eucalyptus.

The centrepiece is very simple with white pumpkins, hydrangeas and eucalyptus on two metal trays (so funny, I just realized that post was a competition between Rachel and I!)

There are long matchsticks in a glass jar on the table.

  1. So beautiful, Jamie! I’m not much of a fan of orange either. I think that’s why I usually decorate a bit for fall then look forward to Christmas decor. Although, you’ve shown it can be lovely without using traditional fall colours.

  2. Absolutely stunning! And the decorating is beautiful too! I love how you managed to make it feel like fall without the orange! Well done!

  3. Jamie, your home is gorgeous. I LOVED the tour and all your white pumpkins and eucalyptus. I can’t seem to find white pumpkins here yet. Hopefully soon! Just stunning, my friend. xx

    1. Thanks Danielle. Isn’t it annoying about the pumpkins? I couldn’t believe when I went to the store today and saw them everywhere…right after I posted. I hope you find some soon!
      Hugs, Jamie

  4. I am just in love with your dining room tablescape! Gorgeousness everywhere. Tres bien! Truth be told, I’m a little jealous that you’re wearing boots already – it’s still too warm here for that. I’m ready for those crisp September mornings, complete with crunchy grass!

  5. Beautiful color palette for Fall.
    One request, I know that the tight shots are beautiful aesthetically, but could you put in a few more full shots that give us an idea of how the whole table looks? It’s too beautiful not to see. Thanks!

  6. Oh wow!! Love your decor, ideas and tips!!! I have just found you through the other ladies on the podcast! God bless and have a blessed weekend

  7. Gorgeous fall decor. I am not a fan of orange either so I really like the white and green pumpkins that you have so effectively displayed throughout your home. Thanks for sharing it with Share Your Style.

  8. Sweet Jamie, where did you get these precious gold single sconces in pic with the wood mirror. Perfectly lovely and I need sconces. Thanks Jenny
