"Transitioning From Summer To Fall Home Tour"

Hello everyone.  I hope your week is off to a great start.  If you are here for the first time, welcome!  I am glad you are here.  

Fall is my favorite time of the year for decorating our home.  I love filling our home with autumnal textures and colors.  But with temps still in the high 90’s, fall decorating takes a back seat in my to do list.  Truth is, full on fall decor happens sometime in September.  But as all bloggers know, seasonal decorating happens much earlier in Blogland.  

Today, I am excited to be joining a group of blogging friends for the “Transitioning From Summer To Fall Home Tours” hosted by Amber Lyon Ferguson of Follow The Yellow Brick Home to share inspiration and simple ideas that you can incorporate to your decor for a subtle transitioning into fall.  So sit back, relax, and grab a glass of wine or a cup of tea and enjoy the tours.  

Let’s first head to our sun room or as I call it, our breakfast room.  This room had a makeover last year.  It was originally a dark taupe with dark furniture and popcorn ceiling!  After a much needed room re-do, it has easily become on our our favorite rooms in the house.  The walls and furniture were painted in a light antique white color and the difference has been incredible.  It feels so much lighter and welcoming.  If is my go to room now for serving an afternoon snack or tea.  Since the room is decorated with blue and yellow, transitioning the room into fall is just a matter of adding a few simple details such as decorative pillows, throws and a large floral arrangement that I made a few years ago.
An apple cake is always a sure sign of fall and this one is a must.   If you are interested in the recipe, click on the link here.   

Sunflowers are also a sign of fall and our local farmers have plenty this time of the year.  A weekly trip to our local stands is always a must.  It supports our local farmers and I have fresh flowers all week for a fraction of the cost!
Isn’t this flower farm stand adorable?  This is where my sunflowers come from.  Just a few minutes from our home!

Fresh apples also great for decorating!  Especially during the autumn season.  Don’t look at apples just for baking, use them for adding color and a natural element to your decor.

Pitchers are a great addition to any style of decorating.  They are inexpensive and can be used all year.  I just love they were they look in this vignette.  A few simple accessories can add a fall feel to your home without much effort. 

Fall also means apple picking, fabulous pumpkins and lots of weekend visits from relative that live in the city and wish to connect with nature during the colorful and majestic autumn season.  Having a guest room that is always ready for company is a must at the Rosemary & Thyme Bed and Breakfast.  That’s how our family and friends lovingly refer to our home. lol


My goal is always to make guests feel welcomed by creating a room that feels warm and cozy.   This is particularly of importance during the cold winter months.  Once that crisp autumn air sets in, I like to add lots of throws, warm blankets and candles to the rooms.  A few soft colored autumn themed pillows bring a bit of the fall flair without feeling overdone.  

Sometimes, when I want my guests to feel extra special, I will set-up an afternoon snack in the room for them.  I know if may seem over the top, but nothing makes me happier.  It is a simple courtesy that will make anyone’s day.

And the ultimate fall indulgence!!!  A cozy seat by the fire.  

This concludes my “Transitioning From Summer To Fall Home Tour” friends.  I hope you have picked up an idea or two for decorating your home this fall season.  Now be sure to visit the rest of the homes on the tour for more fall inspiration.  Links are below.
