Fall Home Tour - Great Room - Farmhouse - Life on Kaydeross Creek

Rustic Farmhouse Fall Home Tour 2017

Hey everyone! Is Fall as busy for you as it has been around here so far? We’ve been working on some projects around the house not to mention soccer, Scouts and other family stuff so I’m a bit late getting this out. I’m so excited to finally share our Rustic Farmhouse Fall Home Tour with you.  So much to do so little time so today we are starting in our family room and entryway. Welcome…

 

Fall Home Tour - Entry way - Farmhouse - Life on Kaydeross Creek

 

I kept the entry pretty simple. The cute little stool was a project last spring. It’s just the right size for the space.

I used some classic Fall elements mixed in with some white pumpkins, hydrangea stems and cotton branches.  I really like to mix it up with textures because it warms up a space. The basket on the door was a project for summer. I just replaced the flowers and painted the Welcome with orange.

I picked up this old typewriter at a town wide garage sale last weekend. It’s amazing what you can find when you aren’t even looking for it.  🙂 Score! I love the black accents mixed in with the browns and white.  By the way, I can’t wait to show you the other stuff we got – new project coming soon.

It’s an eclectic farmhouse mix…

I love the contrast of the orange and blue in the metal with the white of the cotton. The Fixer Upper style wall decor was one of my favorite projects.

I wanted to stick with neutrals and hints of orange on this hutch. I love the way it pops off of the light gray.  I love mixing classic pieces with things that add character like the binoculars, antique door handle and tool box with the leather strap.

You wouldn’t believe what this piece looked like when I got it. You can see that project here.

I like to get double duty out of my decor when I can (more bang for your buck 🙂  The  brown frame on the mantel is hanging on a wooden backdrop which is actually the back of the mini barn door we made. I used it for summer and just flipped it around for fall.

I also like to use versatile pieces wherever possible like the wooden candlestick holders and metal corrugated vase.  They’re so pretty mixed in with seasonal pieces in similar neutral colors and it’s a great way to stretch your “bucks” as my son says.  Lots of textures and old mixed with new make  the space eclectic and inviting.

I hope you enjoyed this part of the Rustic Farmhouse Fall Home Tour. I’ll share our front porch and deck on Monday and the Kitchen, Dining Room and Mudroom after that. I hope you’ll stop back again soon.

Are you a classic fall decor lover or do you like modern neutral tones? Whichever you prefer, enjoy every minute and…

Happy DIY’ing!

Life on Kaydeross Creek Farmhouse Fall Home Tour 2016

Farmhouse Fall Home Tour 2016

I’m thrilled today to finally be able to share my Fall Home Tour with you all!! It’s my absolute favorite time of year up in the Northeast with the crisp air and beautiful colors. If you’re at all like me however, as the days are growing shorter, time is flying by, especially with the kid’s busy fall schedules. It’s taken some time to get here but better late than never, right? So, come on in…

 

Farmhouse Fall Home Tour - Making an entrance - Life on Kaydeross Creek

 

This Fall Home Tour is all about warm texture, layering old and new pieces and adding small pops of color. I kept the entryway pretty simple and left the milking stool the same, (you can see that project here) and just added some fall touches with the pumpkins from our garden.

The foyer opens right up into our family room and my favorite part of the house. The mantel is always fun to decorate but a bit of a challenge with the height. I love the color and texture the hydrangeas add to the space mixed with the blue and grey of the stone and the browns of the sifting screen which I picked up in Brimfield. I try to bring something in from the outdoors throughout the year not only because it’s plentiful but mostly because it’s FREE. Books are a go to for height and in this case I used black for balance.

I made the Gather sign from an old sign I picked up at a thrift store for $1. It just needed a good cleaning and a couple coats of paint. I created a stencil using Microsoft Word by printing the letters on card stock and then cutting them out with an Exacto knife. Tedious but effective.

The Family room is the center of our home.  When you come down the stairs in the morning you see the trees and sky outside and I love the way the neutral decor blends in with the outdoors.

I also love mixing new and old pieces. I found this round screen at Brimfield on my last trip and used it as a tray on the coffee table. I also found the pulley at Brimfield and added it with the candlestick from Target and the woven pumpkin and pillows are from Homegoods.

You can see the mix of old and new here as well. The antique camera I got at a garage sale and I made the key art which you can see here. The October saying is a printable I found on line at On Sutton Place. I love the gold frame that it’s in. It mixes so nice with the orange and brown fall colors.

I love the way the orange pops against the gray walls in the dining room.

I didn’t include any vignettes from the kitchen because that is another project coming soon with some inexpensive updates I have to share. Also coming up is some fun projects for the outdoors. Speaking of outdoors, one of my favorite spots on the property, the Adirondack bridge. You can see that project here.

Life on Kaydeross Creek Farmhouse Fall Home Tour 2016

Simple Fall Home Tour 2015

Hellooo and Happy Fall! I love, love, love this time of year!!  I recently shared some of those DIY fall projects with you. Today I want to show you where those projects and a few others ended up living in my home in this simple fall home tour.

Welcome, come on in….
Fall Home Tour - Farmhouse - Life on Kaydeross Creek

Our great room where you enter from the front door. The fireplace was finally just completed a couple of month ago. We still need a larger mantle and that is on the shedule to be completed by Christmas. Hopefully, the new hardwood floor will be installed by then as well and I can share the results.

I made the sign on the mantle from some old flooring from my dads shed. I picked up the silver milk bucket on the right at Brimfield and the straw pumpkin on the left at Marshall’s.

The other side of the great room is sort of a hodge podge of furniture for now. I am asking Santa for a new sofa for Christmas. Fingers crossed.

The dresser in the entry way I picked up at the Salvation Army for $35, the white chair is from Ikea and I made the ottoman from an old crate which you can see here.

The coffee table was a $5 steal at a garage sale which I painted this quirky shade of orange. I love the color and it makes me smile whenever I walk through this room. I also love how it goes with the double chair in the corner that belonged to my in-laws. Believe it or not, my husband and I used to sit in that chair at their house when we were in high school 🙂

A couple of years ago I was on a mad hunt for a ladder like this. I finally found it at the Warrensburg, NY annual garage sale. It’s HUGE! If you’re ever in the Adirondacks the first week of October, you should definitely check it out!

The little picture frame I picked up at a thrift store for .50 and quickly typed up “welcome fall” on card stock. The basket was only $1. It was bright silver when I got it so I spray painted it Oil Rubbed Bronze. The glass pumpkin was a recent project as was the numbered tray.

Fall Home in the Dining Room…

With the Dining Room I decided to go completely neutral. It really compliments the paint color and still keeps the view outside the main focus. My husband cut the tree stump risers when he was making the new bridge (future post) and I painted and embellished the paper mache pumpkins I got at Michael’s.

I hope you enjoyed this abbreviated fall home tour. Much more to come for Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by and happy DIY’ing!
