Autumn Transitions Home Tour

At the end of summer  I love to make a few changes that slowly transition us into fall.  Nothing drastic, just enough to notice a change and feel in a room.  Thanks so much to Amber @ Follow The Yellow Brick Home for organizing this fun Autumn Transitions Home Tour.  If you are stopping by from Laura's @ Decor To Adore, welcome.  I am sure you were blown away by her tour.  She always inspires me and I love to be able to say she is a precious personal friend that I admire so much.

Ok, let's get this tour on the road - --

I love to change up the living/dining areas since that is what you see when you first walk in the door.  A fresh new look for these spaces always lifts my spirits and helps me usher in the new season.

I thought a little before (summer tour) and after (autumn tour) would show how just a few minor changes can give your room a whole new look and feeling.  Autumn always makes me think of casual walks in the woods, nature and anything "down home".  Straw, rattan and casual decor is calling my name.


BEFORE:  For summer I was really loving cool all white with a little bit more sophisticated feel.

AFTER:  Nothing changed with the pillows, I still love the color combination, but my accessories are a lot more casual and understated.  Weathered wood candlesticks replace the white ceramic ones and a huge wicker basket replaces the white ceramic tray.  The rest of the table top accessories were simplified too.  

BEFORE: Cool white and sophisticated.

AFTER: Casual relaxed and inviting.

It's amazing how just a few accessory changes can give a room a totally new look and feel.

The dining area got a couple of accessory changes too.

BEFORE: White table runner and gold chargers created a more polished look.

White flowers and an all white centerpiece.

AFTER:  No table runner and straw chargers for a more casual feel.



Same white flowers and all white centerpiece.

The view from the bottom of the stairs show how soft and inviting the colors are 

BEFORE;  Our Master Bedroom is another place that is fun to change up for the seasons.


AFTER:  Autumn had me thinking Cream/White/Beige.

AFTER:  We'll still have warm weather through September, so cool white looks good to me.


You really don't have to do a complete room makeover to have a change.  Just dress down your accessories for a more casual feel and your room will be totally different.


There is so much more to see, so hop on over to Panoply and be dazzled.  She will totally inspire you with her talent.  Then when you are done, don't miss the links at the bottom of this post.  Check out every one of the home tours.  I am with you, I can't wait to see them all.  Such a fabulous lineup of talented ladies.



Don't forget, you can still link up to Inspire Me Tuesday too.

  5. Marty, I appreciate your traditional and transitional use of objects to flow with the seasons. Your style is very crisp and clean-looking to me. It makes all the sense in the world to change small things in areas where your eyes can rest and enjoy those little changes. Lovely!

  10. I love that you showed both the summer and fall so I could see how simple changes can make such a difference. You really made your bedroom look cozy with that textured throw! It doesn't take much to change the feel of a room, does it? We are still working on our "builder's basic" home, too, I can't wait until we get to tackle kitchen and bathrooms!

  11. Your house always transitions so well into each season Marty. Love the soft transition from summer to fall. Going up to see some of the other fall transition ideas.
    Happy New Week.

  12. Marty, I agree that with a little change of texture and hue, we can so easily begin to transition to fall. We will just ignore the air conditioner and the heat outside the door. :)

  13. Marty, subtle changes with a big impact! I agree that the white mixed with the warm tones is perfect for a warm weather transition. Everything is truly beautiful!

  15. Marty,
    Your home is always beautifully styled whatever the season. And your flair for adding a touch of understated elegance makes your home one that is always welcoming. The cowhide design on the back of your dining chairs catch my eye each time I see your dining area. Just the right touch of unexpected flair keeps your home fresh!

  16. I have similar yellow flatware, but never thought about pairing it with wicker chargers. Now I need to go out and buy some.

  20. I love the way you showed before and after pictures of your transition to fall decor! This makes it so easy to implement. So happy to be on this tour with you!

  21. Back again! I love how you showed the before and after shots! It is so fun to see how just a few decorative accessories can change the whole feel of a room. I am learning less can still be more (hard for a vintage hoarder) and that it doesn't take totes and totes of seasonal decorations to create beautiful seasonal displays. I love those weathered wood candle sticks and the rattan basket tray vignette, as well as your pretty hat and scarf draped on the chair. The wicker chargers on the dining table are perfect too. I truly appreciate your approach to this post as it is so helpful to see the before and after shots and what a big impact even small changes can have.

    Thank you so much for joining the tour Marty! Enjoy the rest of summer and this coming fall in your lovely home!
