Happy Tuesday, dear friends! Today, your are in for a real treat! The sweet and talented Amber at Follow the Yellow Brick Home is hosting a transitional fall home tour featuring twenty homes. A list of the participants is at the end of this post.
I want to welcome those visiting from Poofing the Pillows. Doesn’t Stacey have a gorgeous home? I have always admired her decorating style!
It is still summertime in Oklahoma, and I will do most of my fall decorating in mid September. Therefore, my tour is more of a late summer theme. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and I’ll give you the grand tour.
My home is a Country French style house, and I tend to decorate in more of a traditional French Country style. I love mixing antiques, sentimental pieces, and collections to create a warm and inviting home. Also, it is no secret that I adore color! The picture below is of my foyer. For a transitional summer to fall look, I simply added white flowers and red apples to my collection of blue and white pieces.
The wall below is also in my foyer and houses a French Country bench with colorful pillows accented by a reproduction Monet print and blue and white plates.
Next, let’s step into the formal living area of the house.
For the transitional fall coffee table vignette, I chose to use additional red apples and dried lavender. The scent of the dried lavender is heavenly!
By now, you can probably tell that I adore blue and white. I have been collecting it for over 20 years. It is a classic and never goes out of style. Nothing adds more impact than grouping your collections together.
In addition to blue and white pieces, I also love to collect Imari. I think the two complement each other wondefully.
Plates are something that I often add to my decor. I think they are one of the greatest decorating tools that you can have on hand. They add a beautiful touch to any room and are great for expanding a piece of wall art that would otherwise be too small.
I am so happy that you stopped by today! Now on to the next tour… Rosemary and Thyme, Janet has a beautiful home that I know you will enjoy touring. Also, all of the participants on the tour are listed below. Be sure to stop by for a visit. Have a wonderful, blessed, and happy Tuesday dear friends!!!
