Natural Fall Décor

Let’s talk about how to add natural fall décor.

First, let me tell you a little about myself. My name is Cindy and I love making our house a home.

I began Cloches & Lavender to share my decorating and crafting journey with my readers.  Being creative is a passion.  I also hope to inspire my followers to embrace their love of home, decorating, and family.

When the seasons change I immediately think of ways to add nature to our home décor.

Today also happens to be my day to share our natural fall décor in the Bloggers Best Fall Home Tour.  Hosting this tour is Kelly from The Tattered Pew.

If you are stopping by after visiting Michelle at Thistle Key Lane, welcome!  Her porch and entryway are pretty, aren’t they?  She always shares such pretty inspiration!

You can visit each Fall home tour by clicking the links at the bottom of this post.

Because I enjoy the natural look of fall, for the most part, I begin in our French Country kitchen. Natural fall décor welcomes our family and close friends because they enter our home this way.

Pieces For The Fall Season

Natural Elements: Flint Corn

Natural elements in fall decor welcome family and friends as they enter the kitchen.  I keep our table clutter-free with a simple centerpiece.  Because we enjoy dinner here nightly, simple works best.  I enjoy table runners because they allow the beauty of our table to be seen with it’s white wash look.

Candles are lit on the table

I especially love this antique plateau mirror that takes centerstage with a McCoy pitcher for autumn.  This pitcher is especially pretty because it has the slightest blue tone and in certain light looks white.  Adding pinecone stems and a lightly antiqued acorn is all it needs.

Across from our table resides a hutch we found curbside.  When the seasons change this is one of the first pieces in our home I begin changing.  Adding brown transferware seems perfect for fall.

A Closer Look Inside The Hutch

An antique brown transferware tureen keeps it simple with Shakespeare’s sonnets from 1842.  A nod to nature is dried hydrangeas and a small pumpkin.

Brown transferware pitchers next to small ironstone dishes add natural fall décor with dried pumpkin stems.  Dry sunflower heads add to the natural fall styled hutch.

Crate under the hutch

Dry oranges and vintage berry baskets add to the natural fall décor.  A grapevine garland adds another nod to fall, while dry hydrangeas and pumpkins finish the look.

I share how to preserve the pinecones in an antique French crate.

Autumn Inspiration Is Welcoming In The Great Room

As you enter our great room our bookshelf is one the first things seen, besides, the TV, we all have them, LOL.

The bookcase shares many natural elements.  For example, the bottom shelf has dry oranges filling an antique compote.  They truly smell amazing and the crown adds whimsy.

A collection of real acorns fills a pitcher as well as a small dish.  I share how to preserve acorns I always add the shelves and decor.

The candle on this shelf and above I recently made and you can see this DIY HERE.  You will be beyond surprised to see how I made these battery-operated flameless candles.

Dry pumpkin stems and gilded walnuts fill a metal and antique alabaster bird bath.

Adding another natural element is the dry hydrangeas.   Adding natural pieces is easy, look outside your window.  Nature offers free and pretty decorating inspiration.

More Natural Elements In The Great Room

In front of a picture window filling a lantern with dry oranges and a candle adds natural fall décor.  I share inspiration for lantern filler ideas.

Adding a small dried orange wreath to my French armoire adds a pretty touch.

The Buffet Filled With Hydrangea To Welcome Fall

An antique French crate is overflowing with hydrangea for more natural décor.  Dry hydrangeas and vine pumpkins add a rustic touch.  An old shutter has a dry orange wreath I share.  This is easy to make and works through the winter months.

Pumpkins Add Natural Touches In The Dining Room

Ordinarily, I spread pumpkins around our home.  However, this year I have my pumpkins as a centerpiece on the dining room table.  This adds natural décor to the dining room.  Besides, there are dry hydrangeas, walnuts, pine cones, and dry artichokes. Additionally, bark tea light holders cast a soft glow.

Adding another element of nature is my acorn wreath hanging from a door.   On the small mantle is a canvas here I share how to apply reverse transfers from vintage graphics.

Lastly Fall Decor Added To The Dining Room

Lastly, a lantern adds more natural decor. with natural walnuts.  Again, decorating with nature is inexpensive and easy.  A straw wreath holds a large wooden acorn.

I hope my tour displaying natural decor inspires you to think about adding these pieces to your home.  Remember you only have to look outside your window and to the grocery store.  Nature is free, easy, and adds warmth.

Now please visit Libbie from A Life Unfolding to see her cozy fall bedroom.  I know it will be beautiful.
