French Vintage Fall Tour
My French vintage fall tour is filled with stunning home decor!
Fall is my most favourite time of year and it’s fun to decorate with natural decor elements. Since I decorated my home last year using non-traditional fall colors, I’m doing the same this year with my French vintage fall tour.
Today I’m taking part in a fall tour, this one with all my Canadian friends. Thank you, Christina from The DIY Mommy and Shannon from AKA Design for organizing such a great group bloggers!
I purchased this stunning wooden mirror in the clearance section of a local shop because the mirror had a large crack right down the middle, so I replaced the mirror and did an an antiquing effect to it which didn’t quite work out! Then I bought a new mirror for it, redid the antiquing effect and now it looks awesome but the post shows the old photos of the tutorial gone wrong. I will post new photos of it in that post soon but at least you can see the finished mirror version here.
These beautiful pumpkins are the DIY heirloom pumpkins I painted last year. I also have a tutorial with how to paint the light orange coloured pumpkins too.
They are pretty similar to the real thing – can you tell the real pumpkins from the fake ones?
Fall dining room
For my fall dining room, I decided on using seeded eucalyptus (my favourite green colour) and pears with roses to create a table runner effect down the middle of the table.
Every year it seems I’m constantly running from store to store looking for white pumpkins and heirloom pumpkins before my fall tours (the tours always run in September) and it’s exhausting and I just didn’t have it in me this year.
I thought to myself that surely my blog readers might have the same issue. So I decided instead to use pears/apples and seeded eucalyptus for the theme of my tours this year along with roses (because they’re just so pretty!) to make items that are ‘fall’ and available. Nothing like orchard fruit for fall.

Shop My Dining Room
My beautiful white kitchen started with a fresh clean slate and then I added more roses, eucalyptus, pears and apples. All the natural and wooden touches look so fresh against all that white.
Here is a free printable for you with apples and eucalyptus and the best fall quote ever from Oscar Wilde, “And all at once summer collapsed into fall”.
Shop My Kitchen
I just bought these beautiful copper platters and I love the versatility with different ways to use them, for decor and for serving.
I’m so glad you stopped by for my French Vintage fall tour!

I love your French Farmhouse-y home and decor, Jamie! Like LOVE! So happy to have you participate in the tour with Christina and I and all the other ladies this week! xo
Thanks so much, Shannon!!
This is amazing, I will take one of everything! I really did have to do a double take on those green pumpkins, excellent job! Happy Fall!
Aww, thanks Laurie!
I love all the natural decorating , i am not a fan of orange, just on the trees. Your mantel is wonderful,reminds me of all the old stone mantels i’ve seen in pictures of France.
Thanks so much, Marlene. Yes, that’s what I was thinking too when I picked out that fireplace mantel. It’s made of concrete to look like limestone.
It’s all so beautiful, Jamie! I agree with the search for pumpkins being difficult. I found two little white ones over the weekend, but that was it. Ended up switching gears and I’m happy with the result. Happy Fall 🙂
haha, I know! Doing something different is always better anyway 😉 Thanks Shauna!
Thank you for sharing the beautiful tour! What some awesome decor styles I love fall God bless
Thank you, Norma!
What’s not to love Jamie, it’s all so perfect for what you portray. Frenchiness oh my. Am going to have to find some seeded eucalyptus, that’s all there is to it. Love it all. Am finding myself veering away from trendy cottage to more maybe French like in some ways. If we still lived in San Diego area could find some wonderful seeded eucalyptus growing wild in certain areas. Certain things I miss from San Diego.
That old mirror is so quaint,love it’s difference. Love how the mirror looks with pears and eucalyptus, loose and welcoming.
In my lifetime have slowly changed my style several times without realizing how or when .I find it freeing to change what I thought I loved before, slowly segue into other ideas.
It is so freeing changing in small ways with decor and with things you love, isn’t it? I find it relaxing. I found this seeded eucalyptus at Whole Foods. It’s not always there but when it is, I grab a bunch of it! I also find it at a local shop. I love San Diego too!
Your tour is so beautiful. Love the pears and seeded eucalyptus, and the mantel with the pumpkins. So, so pretty!
Thanks so much, Danyelle!
Love, love, love all the pears worked into your decor. And what a gorgeous kitchen you have, I wouldn’t mind cooking one bit in that kitchen!
Thanks so much, Sonja! It’s definitely my dream kitchen.
So, so pretty Jamie!! I always love all of your natural touches. The printable on your cutting board looks great! We still need to plan a get together – how much longer do you have for your book deadline? Shoot me a message when you have time! xo
Yes, Jennifer! We need to get together. November? Thank you!
OH my Jamie, everything is stunning…I LOVE the eucalyptus, the roses, the pumpkins…all of it. Just beautiful. And I had the same issue as you…trying to find fall pumpkins in early September is tough!!
Thank you, Jo-Anna. You’re too kind. Pumpkins are always so hard to find this time of year.
Absolutely gorgeous, Jamie! Your styling and photography are stunning, as always! I love how you’ve given your home a perfectly fall feel but it’s still so light, bright, and airy!
Thanks so much, Krista!
Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! Thanks for the inspiration!
Thanks so much, Janelle!
Love all the soft greens you used everywhere! So refreshing, especially after the hot fall weather that we’ve had so far this year!
Thanks Courtenay! I know, it’s been so warm in so many places, even hear in Vancouver which is rare.
Stunning as always, Jamie! I love your mantel with that gorgeous mirror and pumpkins. Your kitchen is just amazing too!
Thanks so much, Christina!
I love the apples and pears
Absolutely beautiful, as always! I am swooning over your mantel. If I was to do french country I would want it to look like this! <3 Pinned!
Thanks so much, Ariel!
I just adore all you do…you can do no wrong when it comes to design
Awww, thank you so much, Chris.
I love your french farmhouse … But I have gotten so enthused with the french design, tuscan, Paris!!! One of these days I want to visit that part of our world!!! I enjoy your decor and you have a beautiful home and thank you for sharing with us God bless
Thank you, Norma! I love the style too (of course) and would love to travel more to Italy and France.
Jamie – your home is lovely and you have really made an amazing autumn transformation.
Only one thing bugging me – the scotch tape hanging up that Oscar Wilde printable…….I suggest taking a thin piece of twine about 12 inches….taping the ends to the BACK of your sign, and hanging it like a necklace over the handle of your awesome wooden chopping board. Just a thought. That’s the ONLY thing I’d change – everything else is spot on perfection.
Thanks for the inspiration!!!!
Thanks Michele! I love fall decorating. I didn’t use masking tape though. The tape I used was gold and white washi tape which I love to use for easy crafts, it probably doesn’t show up that great in photos but it’s really cute in person.
Jamie your dining room is gorgeous!
The pumpkins really do look amazing. Love all the soft colors and the addition of pears!
I love the patina on your dining room table. I’m helping a friend get things in order at her new home. She MUST see this! (inspirememonday)
Thank you so much, Ola!
Stunning home. Everything is perfect! Happy Fall, Kippi
Thank you, Kippi!
Your fall mantel here is one of my favorites that you’ve done, Jamie! The eucalyptus paired with heirloom pumpkins is just perfect! And those soft greens are such a beautiful twist on oranges and reds. Thank you for sharing at our Merry Monday party. I’m going to include your beautiful tour in my Party Features next week 🙂
Thank you so much, Emily! Eucalyptus and pumpkins gets me every time, I’m glad you agree 😉
Where did you get your dining table?! And what kind of wood is it?
I bought the dining room table set from a local shop but I found the same one at Wayfair: http://fave.co/2pA5bKw
It’s solid wood but I’m sorry I don’t know what kind of wood it is.
These are the same chairs that I have: https://rstyle.me/n/czaj8ib82i7
Thank you for responding!
