Welcome back, friends! I’m so glad you came to visit with me and continue on my little harvest home tour! Today, I’ll show you how I’ve decorated my entryway and living room with affordable Fall home decor goodness! As you know, most of my finds come from Kirklands, Target, TJ Maxx, Home Goods, Michaels, and Pottery Barn. And, I like to recycle all of my items from the previous years and add-in a few, small, new decor goodies. So, grab a coffee and let’s get started!
A few things that drew me to this house were the two-story entrance, the detailed molding throughout, and the arched wood double doors with the ironwork grilles. And, I really love how the sun shines through the glass doors in the mornings. There was NOTHING in this area for the longest time. The wooden wall coat rack is a DIY I made from two pieces of old barn wood, some stain, and some vintage-style hooks. It’s so fun to decorate it all throughout the year. Now, this is the second rug I have put in front of these doors. Apparently, the cat AND the dog think the rug is actual grass so they just do what comes natural when they are outside — on. the. grass. Oh well, luckily, I found this sisal rug on Overstock.com for around $30 – with Free Shipping, too!!! The little bench is from Hobby Lobby. The throw is actually a tablecloth that was on sale at TJ Maxx (I cut it into a few pieces and I am using the rest of it on my rustic ladder). The small wood tray is a DIY I made from an old potting bench. And, the adorable “hello fall” pillow is from, one of my faves, Kirklands.
On the right side of the doorway, there are two, brown lidded baskets from Pottery Barn (find here: Daytrip Lidded Baskets). I like to change-up this decor with the seasons — right now it’s a variety of pumpkins, a bird in a nest, and some autumn leaves, and then there is a dark, heavy vase with some branches and a little greenery. In the right side corner is my Moran Coat Rack from Pottery Barn (find here: Moran Coat Rack). I like to change-out this decor, as well, with the seasons. Currently, there is a Fall plaid throw, a dark hat, and a fishing basket hanging from the iron hooks.
Finally, we have the entryway console table area all decked out for Fall. Again, pieces of the same tablecloth from the bench are being used on the ladder and the table. Everything else is recycled from the years before. The little black bird, the vintage scale, and the old books are from a local flea market. The large black lantern and orange pillow came from Kirklands. The rustic ladder, vase, and olive bucket all came from World Market. This large mirror in the foyer is a DIY mirror that I made using a large piece of plywood, several 12″ x 12″ mirrors, and liquid nails.
Moving on to the Living Room (or the not-lived-in-much room), my favorite spot in here is the little leather chair with the Pottery Barn pumpkin pillow. It’s just a cozy little nook for reading and resting. And, Holly has been known to nap there.
This year I wanted to brighten-up the mantel area. I built a wooden backdrop and painted it white, then hung this adorable cotton and pumpkin wreath from Kirklands. Next, I piled on the pumpkins in shades of white, pale green, and orange. I kept the white theme going with the distressed white candle holders, the cotton stems, and the white flowers. Oh, and I made this “Autumn Leaves and Pumpkins Please” sign from scrap wood and chalk paint from my wood shop.
On the white sofa and love seat, I placed pumpkin pillows and solid pillows in all the shades of Fall. There is a large, round mirror in the living room, and I attached a cute little pumpkin swag (from Kirklands) around the top. I actually cut the swag into two pieces — one swag to go over the round mirror, and one swag to go over the mirror near the stairs. The two lanterns on either side of the mirror are a DIY project I made using old barn wood, Pottery Barn lanterns, and wire baskets. Super easy – peasy.
The small console table and mirror near the staircase had to have their share of Autumn, too! I used half of the Kirkland’s pumpkin swag to go over the top of the black mirror. I made the little “Pumpkins, Apples, and Hay Rides” sign. I turned-around one of my Rae Dunn pineapple pitchers and stuck a sprig of Fall foliage in it. And, the pumpkin, the basket, and the “Be Grateful” pillow are all reused from last year.
Well, thank you guys so much for touring my home today. I hope you’ve enjoyed visiting, and I hope I gave you a little dose of fall inspiration. I would love to see what you create in your own home for fall. Please feel free to tag me in your decor photos on Instagram @derbylanedreams or Facebook so I can see your creativity!
