My last bunch of displays were vivid and colorful...created from some things that I got at the farmers' market. The ones I did for today have a more muted color scheme using elements from around my house, hydrangea flowers and a few apples. They also have a farmhouse flavor, especially with my big rooster and antique sideboard.
I think it is so pretty to use hydrangeas, gourds and a few white pumpkins for fall decorating. I like things simple, neutral, kind of worn looking and with lots of texture. I am all about texture...I like it more than color. I also like a good apple...
I love certain elements of farm style decorating...the patina of an old piece and and how it just feels warm and comfortable. I also think it looks great when it is mixed with more modern pieces of furniture and artwork, natural elements, a little metal and some great light fixtures too.
Well, that's it for my fall displays...they have been revamped and moved to new areas since my son has been begging me to decorate for Halloween (ugh...I was almost going to write Christmas), so that will be the next thing on my agenda. When I get it done, I will have to share my creepy photos with you ;)
I want to say a big thank you to my wonderful new friend Rachel at French Farmhouse 425 for mentioning me on her blog the other day...that was so sweet of her. If you want to enjoy a few other farmhouse treasures be sure to go and visit her.
Lastly, I will be linking this post up to Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday, so head over to Debra's blog and check out all of the inspiring posts.
Have a great day!
