Brilliant Colors of Fall Home Tour

Hello friends,

Welcome to the Brilliant Colors of Fall Home Tour and welcome from Ashley’s site - Dash Lifestyles. Isn’t her home gorgeous? I also want to give a shout out to Mansa from This is Simplicite who has organized a wonderful group of bloggers to join her on this Fall Home Tour and I’m thrilled to be taking part. Hopefully, you will find lots of inspiration for adding Fall flair into your home!

This Fall, I am focusing on simple decor. In fact, I asked myself that if could incorporate two things into my decor this season.….what would they be? Well, I thought about it and realized my two things are:

  1. Greenery/Flowers (Faux or Real)

  2. Pumpkins (Faux or Real)

For those of you who know me well…I’m sure this doesn’t surprise you because I LOVE decorating with these two items! So, let me show you how i’ve incorporated these two items into my home decor and throughout our Airbnb’s this Fall. Simple, easy and budget friendly is my game plan this year!

Dining Room:

I added 3 different sized/colors of pumpkins to my table and layered greenery around them, along with some faux pears to create a Fall tablescape. Can you tell which of the greenery and pumpkins are fresh and which ones are faux?

This lace table runner from Target makes a wonderful backdrop for this Fall centerpiece.

Vintage dishes and black napkins make a great addition to a Fall table.

I love changing the centerpiece designs in my Dining Room and in these pics, you will notice I’m simply using fresh flowers as the spotlight for this Fall table. I added a tablecloth and layered a lace table runner on top of it and then added a placemat under the main flower arrangement. To finish the look off, I added vintage glasses as candle holders. There are so many colorful Fall blooms out there so take advantage of them and use them in your decor!

Fresh flowers are perfect for a Fall centerpiece!

In the kitchen at our Cottage Airbnb - I added a faux pumpkin and flowers to the counter. So simple and so pretty!

Here is another idea from our bungalow Airbnb using faux greenery. I simply placed a few faux stems in a jar and layered a metal tray underneath it….and voila!

Pumpkins displayed in a basket are a great way to add texture and color to spaces, too.

Living Room:

In our Living Room, I added pumpkins on the coffee table and added fresh grass clippings to a jar on the mantle.

In this Airbnb, I used fresh flowers and a dried wheat wreath to bring in the subtle colors of Fall.

In these spaces, I added one or two pumpkins to the side tables or a wooden tray. Again, simple and easy!

Simple decor is all that is needed for this bedroom at the bungalow Airbnb.

I think porches are my absolute favorite thing to style…here are a few of my favorites from our house and our Airbnb’s!

I’ve so enjoyed showing you these spaces for Fall. Remember - it’s the little things that make the most impact! Make sure you check out the others who are a part of this Fall Home Tour and especially Caitlin at Caitlin Marie Designs who was first on the tour today.

Enjoy this Fall season, my friends - and SAVOR every moment spent with family and friends during this beautiful time of year! xoxo
