A country-style family estate is the hot decorating trend this fall but you don’t have to live in the country or own a family estate to pull off our 12 fall decorating ideas below!
Start With A Red Door
Painting your door red is a huge statement that would appeal to everyone no matter what season of the year. Red doors are reminiscent of barns but be sure to pick a subdued red or a wine red for year-long strong classic look.
Add your initials to your door, towels, and even pillowcases! For those who are married, the initial letter of the shared surname can be one giant monogram or can be flanked by the couple’s initials.
Horseshoes as wall décor and some portraits of beloved horses (or random horses) are beautiful design details. An old saddle, antique horse figurines from the flea market, or framed pages from an equestrian book give the same feel for less.
Pitchers and Flowers
There’s something about the combination of vintage-looking pitchers and fresh flowers that just whisper rough elegance. Decorating for a bachelor’s home? Use a bundle of fall branches instead!
Go for Topiaries in Pots!
Potted topiary to grace your entryway or a table is sure to turn heads. The beauty of having them in pots is that it would be easy to move them around if you get tired of them.
Plaid and Menswear Prints
Wool tweed, plaid, and houndstooth fabric are great for upholstery and accessories. They can also be used in the bedroom and in the porch for accent.
Get a Wicker Trunk
Wicker trunks are for more than just transporting picnic items. You can use them to hold magazines and trinkets in the living room, extra storage for the guest room, and to store seasonal items in plain sight.
Suitcases as Tables
Whether you use a stack of suitcases as a coffee table or a nightstand, it is sure to create that country home feel. They can also double as storage.
Hang Some Copper Pots
Displaying your copper pots by hanging them over the stove or as a wall arrangement in the kitchen will make your kitchen even more inviting. Bonus points if you can add other copper accessories too.
A chipped paint look on your display cupboard will make your home feel homier and give it that shabby chic feel. What better way to showcase an antique tea set or some vintage plates?
An Inviting Porch
A porch with mood lighting, cozy throws, plump large pillows, and some pretty greens is the perfect place to sip hot mugs of cider or cocoa. Makes for a good fall reading nook too!
Lots of Apples
Or pumpkins! This last fall decorating tip is so simple and classic and works great! Have them in the foyer, the kitchen, and the dining area for a fall perfect feel.
