Today all is right with the calendar! September 23, 2014 marks the official start of fall, and in the infamous words of Marky Mark and his Funky Bunch, can you feel it? Wow, did I just date myself or what? Summer heat and humidity has finally relented and it’s time to break out the fall at home decorating favorites. Dave the Builder’s mancave looks like the distribution center for Hobby Lobby. Don’t you love that look?
Several “hello, do you have any gourds (cause I’ve got friends in low country places), ornamental cabbage (it’s the deep South lady, wait a few more weeks), cotton stalks (score!) and the ever great, ever regionally challenged do you have white pumpkins phone calls have been made over the last few days.
Decorating for this year’s Places In The Home at fall home tour focuses on a natural theme with a family overtone to it.
My brother has the cotton connection, 46+ acres of it to be exact. His home is located out in the country surrounded by cotton fields ready for fall harvest.
My parent’s recent trip to East Tennessee resulted in my Ball Mason jar collection growing by one. My paternal grandmother was known for her famous pinto beans, and this somehow seemed naturally appropriate.
Can’t forget the traditional pop of pumpkin color.
Additions, changes, adjustments…
Dark tones, warm colors and the lack of natural lighting worked to my fall photo shoot advantage.
Heirloom pieces, vintage favorites and simple accents and accessories place the emphasis on less is more. Fall home tours are so much fun to share with others. I’m linking up this week at Savvy Southern Style.
Welcome home fall. You’ve been greatly missed.
