Fall in the kitchen is the last tour for me this fall. Last week I showed you the foyer and the great room. The most important room in our home is the kitchen. It’s where I love spending time because it is open to the great room. I can be doing my cooking thing in the kitchen yet be a part of all that is going on in the adjoining room. As I mentioned before, I like to use what I have, and so the only thing new that I bought for this room was a yummy fall candle and some candy corn. That’s it. And we are enjoying the candy corn, by the way.
You saw this view of the kitchen when I showed you my vintage poster purchase. There was a bowl of apples on the table, but I made a vignette using those apples. And by the way, after seeing this shot, my daughter-in-law suggested that I paint the bench to match the blue in the poster.
I had another bench there before that was blue, and I really liked the look. So, I am going to go with Josie’s suggestion. Now, let’s look at the fall additions.
Here you go. I am using a feeding pan that I bought at a farm supply store a few years ago to hold real and fake apples.
Beside them is a little broom also purchased at the farm store. They are on place mats that I put side by side to look like a runner.
You saw them on the blog here .when I showed you how easy it was to turn plain place mats into Frenchy ticking place mats. I topped them with a wooden cutting board to cover where they meet. Texture is a good thing for fall centerpieces, and I love the way these wine corks look in the lantern that came from Ikea a few years ago.
I have a trio of pillows on the bench, and this one is such a cutie. I bought it last year I think at Home Goods.
I added two cutting boards to the rustic shelves and a pumpkin now sits on the stack of white ironstone plates.
Sorry about the quality of this photo, but here’s that candy corn I mentioned. I added this painting just to bring in more fall colors.
Whoops! I did buy these fresh dish towels. I am still using my navy accessories and just working the fall things in with them.
I love brass and copper touches in the fall. These bowls really go with the fall vibe.
Here’s another angle. And that’s a wrap for our fall decorations. They will be here till late November and then out will come Christmas. Now is my favorite time of the year, and I want to enjoy every single minute.
