Thrifty Fall Home Tour
It’s that time of year, folks. Time to start thinking about transitioning to the warm and cozy, the comfort and layers, and anything else that makes you go Ahhhh. For me that feeling starts within my home, its decor. This season I decided to decorate using both thrifted items along with brand new items. At Home Stores provide an opportunity to share my design inspiration and specifically my reason I love to create a “homey” atmosphere. Pour yourself a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy my Thrifty Fall Home Tour.
Welcome to my home. Watch your step as you walk past an upcycled old door and a reclaimed barn board bench. Each I found on different treasure hunting trips. With a little paint and accessorizing, the two blend well together.
As you enter, you will notice a blend of old and new decor mixed together. Ask anyone who knows me well. I have only one way of decorating, that is mixing the old with the new, the thrift store find with the new current trending item. If you love it, it will all flow together. Trust me. I do it all the time. As you look around, my foyer, great room and dining room, take note of how these items are combined to create my Thrifty Fall Home Tour.
Walking though the foyer, you will enter the family room. It’s a wide open space that is very much lived in on a daily basis. Throughout this decorating process, I mainly stayed within the neutral palate. However, during my At Home Shopping Spree, I came across a great rug with awesome color and print. I just had to have it.
Here is an up close look at the area rug I fell in love with. It’s vibrant, thick and polyester, allowing great wear in this high traffic room. The best part, it was on sale when I found it. It had to come home with me! Thanks At Home!
My favorite part of this room is the fireplace. It makes such a great focal point. This is a space I will change out often. Here, you can see how I mixed a thrifty found vintage window frame with some current decor. Because, I was attracted to the curves of the frame, I knew I could blend in easily with my fall decor. If you love it, it will work!
Again you can see I have mixed the old with the new. I love old doors and you can find them throughout my home.
Making the home more cozy, requires pillows, lots of pillows. At Home Stores have an abundance of choices. I chose a couple of cream colored ones to stay within the neutral pallet , but added a pop of yellow too. It’s fall after all.
Beyond the family room is the dining area. Actually, it’s one large space, but the sectional helps as a room divider. Because it flows into the other, I wanted to continue with the neutral pallet.
At Home Store had some wonderful fall home decor to choose from. The fall wreath and thankful pumpkin sign were perfect for the dining area. The vintage inspired candelabra was the perfect height to sit upon the table, and the white terrarium on the buffet made the green apples inside just pop. Those colors drawn from that great area rug.
Well there you have it, folks. I hope you enjoyed today’s Fall Thrifty Decorating Tour as much as I did. I had a blast being able to decorate on a budget by mixing thrifty treasures with my new At Home Finds from At Home Stores .
