Simple natural autumn
such as pumpkins
and bowls of fresh fruit
Simple, natural autumn is my favorite.
And out in the little cottage- just a sprinkling of simple autumn has
started to appear.
The little cottage is a small guest cottage on our property
It is simple in design and style with a touch of vintage charm
and leans a bit more rustic and than the house.
So I tend to play up that rustic charm
and decorate it a little more for a farmhouse cottage look.
Today I am joining an amazing group of bloggers sharing the autumn that has
started to appear around their homes-
and I am giving you a quick tour of the cottage-
starting in the little kitchen.
Though, truth be told, these photos were taken awhile back
when there were just a few pumpkins to be found.
So you know things will be changing again.
With a vintage cupboard (that we found in the basement of the house)
and open shelves in the base cupboards
the cottage kitchen is simple in design and style-
but big on vintage charm.
Next to the kitchen is the small dining area
and another old cupboard filled with white dishes.
And a little bit more of that copper.
I will share a closer look at the table centerpiece in another post
but it is all about magnolia, pumpkins and bleached pinecones.
In the living room area,
an old orchard ladder is a favorite place to dry
a few flowers.
and the fireplace got a grapevine pear and pumpkin look for early autumn
since I have yet to find those elusive pumpkins in the market yet.
For this look- I had a little fun with more bold tones and patterns like
a pendleton wool throw in warm rust tones
On the stairs, a little bit of extra sprigs of wheat wrapped in a gold ribbon.
and a few pumpkins and pinecone garland on the steps
In the bathroom-
just a little bit of pretty.
This bathroom has an antique sideboard that was made into a sink
and it is covered in old details.
And of course I had to play with a table setting on the patio…
the cottage patio is in the works getting a fresh look as we speak so no playing out
there in the mess just yet
but the pea gravel patio will do.
A simple table with a pop of blue
I will be sharing a closer look at these areas and much more soon
when autumn makes another appearance in the house this season
(aka- when the pumpkins come into the stores.)
