French Farmhouse Fall Dining Room

10.21.2019

I hope y'all had a good weekend. It was chilly and rainy on Saturday, but Sunday was absolutely gorgeous. 
Today I'm sharing the French farmhouse fall dining room. This room is filled with light about half a day as it faces the east. A few weeks ago I decided to add my French confit pots collection to the top of the hutch. Now, I'm just trying to decide whether I like them up there or not.





I created a vignette on the table using the large amber demijohn and set it on a large breadboard. Then I used an ironstone tureen, cloth napkins, a ceramic squirrel and a pumpkin.





I took photos for the blog and then I ended up making some changes before sharing them.This is what happens because I can't stop messing with things.

 I wanted to place my ironstone tureen back in the hutch so that meant changing up what I had on the breadboard. I added a stack of plates and placed the squirrel on those. Then I added the yellow confit pots to the top of the hutch and added a couple of yellow pillows.



After adding the yellow accents in here I watched designer Vern Yip on Live With Kelly and Ryan and he said one of the trending colors this fall in home decor is yellow. I was trending and didn't even know it.
😀

Plaid is always good for fall or anytime. I found this pillow cover on Etsy.

I love the nubby texture of this pillow.



This is the way it looked before I changed it up with the yellow.


Don't blink it will change again.


Wishing y'all a great week!

  2. Love the vignettes! If yellow is trending maybe we won’t have to paint our great room or kitchen—they have been yellow for years! I remember the pretty yellow ceiling you had in the dining room, do you miss it? You have beautiful pieces to work with.

    1. He said yellow and blush accessories were trending for fall this year and no I don't miss the yellow ceiling. Best makeover we did!

  3. Really like the confit pots on top of the hutch. The yellow tones definitely add a touch of Fall to the room!

  4. I love your style, and the light coming through that demijohn is beautiful! I'm loving amber this fall myself. I just wish I had the storage room so I can collect everything I love the way you've done...I was lucky enough to shop this weekend at the Pottery Barn outlet in SC, and am now going to have to figure out where to put everything!

  5. The confit pots look good on cabinet. Your dining room looks good but, I also love color on walls and ceilings. It just depends on decor and rooms for the house. I'm a mix thru out....lol

  6. I love the golden, mustardy color. Two of my area rugs have these tones and I treat it like a neutral. It is warm, and goes with almost any color. Nice touches, Kim!

  10. I love that you have so many gorgeous wood tones in your dining room. I love painted furniture (in fact I do a lot of furniture painting) as much as the next person, but I also love the look of gleaming wood. You've struck a masterful balance of light and dark in your dining room, so the wood tones do not make the room feel heavy at all...just warm and inviting. Great job!

  11. Love your home, and your confit pots are BEAUTIFUL! I just think all 5 of them look like they are squishing your hutch visually. Try the center one and the 2 smaller ones in the center of the hutch and the two larger ones on each side of the "table" of the hutch. That might make them seem not so heavy. I had to snicker when you mentioned Vern (love him!) said yellow was trending. I think that's predicted about every other year! Yellow isn't for everyone. I've had an intense yellow gold in my entry, dining room and living room for 19 years and love it. But not sure if I could handle it in the family room or kitchen. Thanks for this beautiful post.

    1. If you'll look again there is no room to put three in the center and the others on each end. Thanks for the suggestion though.

  12. Love the changes... who am I kidding? I love everything you do. It always looks wonderful. You are very talented and I love following you. You've mentioned using Rub n Buff... which color do you use? I looked on Amazon and there was gold leaf, and several other options. Thanks Kim!

  13. Looks to me like so many confit pots seem too heavy up there and are fighting for attention with the ironstone. Why not try one of the bigger pots on the middle shelf where the ironstone platter is, then leave just one big pot on top with the two smaller ones on either side? Because you're not sure, I know you'll be tweaking until you get it exactly right!! And that leaves you with the joy of finding a spot for the third bigger pot!

    1. The shelves where the platters are are very slim for plates only. Yes, I'm tweaking and thanks for the suggestion.

  14. I am loving the yellow in there...you trendsetter, you! The texture on that pillow is great too. As always, love the room! I guess we are getting your wet weather today...it's been raining all day here in NJ!

  16. Look at you being trendy without even knowing it! Of course you are! It all looks lovely. The large golden glass bottle on the table is a great pop of color!
