Hey, friends! I can hardly believe it’s time to be sharing a fall home tour! Didn’t summer just begin? I’m wading my way into fall decorating slowly this year, but I was so excited when Kelly from Eclectically Vintage invited me to join her home Eclectically Fall Home Tour this year. It was the perfect thing to get me in gear to get ready for the season. You can start the tour on her blog here!Eclectically Fall Home Tour 2016 | Tour this 1980s fixer-upper, which has been transformed to a modern New England farmhouse and decorated for autumn.

If you’re stopping by from Craftberry Bush, welcome! Lucy is definitely a tough act to follow, but I will do my best. :)

If this is your first time visiting, I’m so happy you’re here! My name is Nina. I live in the suburbs of Massachusetts with my DIYer husband Mack, our three children, and our golden retriever Lucy. I grew up in New Hampshire and have a love of all things New England Farmhouse- so we’re infusing our formerly builder-grade 1980s colonial with farmhouse charm.

For longtime readers, I’m so excited to decorate some of these newly renovated spaces for fall for the first time!

While I can’t bring myself to do a neutral fall this year, neither was I feeling the extremely vivid oranges and reds. My theme this year is a bit of a “desaturated autumn”.  The colors are more reminiscent of the end of summer, and what’s occurring right outside my window with everything muting a bit. Eclectically Fall Home Tour 2016 | Tour this 1980s fixer-upper, which has been transformed to a modern New England farmhouse and decorated for autumn.

The flowers were arranged from inexpensive Trader Joe’s bouquets. It still surprises me that I can fill my entire home with beautiful flowers for less than the price of a throw pillow!

Apples are a recurring theme this year. While pumpkins are nowhere to be found in my area, we have apples in abundance. I have a print, and a recipe involving apples for you later this week!Eclectically Fall Home Tour 2016 | Tour this 1980s fixer-upper, which has been transformed to a modern New England farmhouse and decorated for autumn.

The Pomme Basket is a reader and Instagram favorite every fall- it was from Arhaus five or six years ago and sold out. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to source one that has the wording like this. However, I did find a similar source for the burl bowl I love so much here! Mine was given to me by a family friend named Bernie who makes them as a hobby, but the source has great options. Eclectically Fall Home Tour 2016 | Tour this 1980s fixer-upper, which has been transformed to a modern New England farmhouse and decorated for autumn.

This tablescape is a variation of my favorite standby. This time around I added seeded eucalyptus, which seems to be abundant this year, and a kraft paper runner. Eclectically Fall Home Tour 2016 | Tour this 1980s fixer-upper, which has been transformed to a modern New England farmhouse and decorated for autumn.

Apple orchards are a great source for deer sheds (antlers a deer drops or sheds naturally). My dad found one of these antler sheds in an orchard. The others are faux, found here. Eclectically Fall Home Tour 2016 | Tour this 1980s fixer-upper, which has been transformed to a modern New England farmhouse and decorated for autumn.

Finally, I dreamed up this idea earlier in the summer, and I really love it for Thanksgiving and other fall gatherings. This is a simple kraft paper runner. It’s a great and simple way for guests to write down and share what they are thankful for.

I kept things simple in the kitchen, because I really enjoy baking in the fall and don’t want to have to work around too many decorations. As the season progresses, I will probably add in the usual white and cinderella pumpkins that I love with the colors of this space.

The bowl of apples from the dining room is put to work in the kitchen and will become a delicious apple crostata later this week.

This shot was actually impromptu, as I was preparing the flowers for the breakfast nook. They just looked so beautiful in the sink and I couldn’t help but snap a photo.

Lastly, here’s our breakfast nook! The sunset light in the breakfast nook is always unreal and beautiful.  It’s somewhat unfortunate that it’s rather dark and requires a light for actual “breakfast” but we use this room constantly, and it’s a dining room too.

I was mesmerized by the light in here. Later, when the leaves completely change colors, I will make sure to take some more shots and show you how this room positively glows at dusk in the autumn.

  1. nina, your home is stunning! your tablescape is just beautiful! and you make me homesick…. i grew up in massachusetts- wilbraham, to be exact. and fall in new england is the most magical time ever on earth!

  2. Hi Nina – Your home is beautiful, so light and bright. I love it. It is fun to see how we used the same florals from the craft store. You used them on your table and I used them in a bottle and vases. Love to see the versatility :-) I also read your post about Styling Your Brand. I bought that book the day it came out. It is so inspiring. I have lent it out to a few others and they all love it. I would love to meet Fiona and attend one of her workshops one day.

  3. I absolutely love your kitchen! I stumbled across your blog the other day when I was looking for kitchen inspiration for our future kitchen remodel. In fact, I couldn’t sleep the other night and I read your entire series of blog posts about remodeling your kitchen.
    Then I read your post about defining your blog style. I’m ordering Fiona’s book and can’t wait to read it! Well, then, of course, I had to read your post about your personal style struggle. I’m with ya. I keep waiting to lose weight, get in shape and become the ideal me.
    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog and touring your home! Thanks for sharing so openly!

  4. Hi Nina! What a gorgeous home tour! Your home wears fall beautifully and your photography is amazing! LOVE the “get the look”! So helpful! Happy FALL!

  5. Cam you tell me what kind of berry is on the dining table with the eucalyptus? I have a faux version but wanted to know the name of it. You house is beautiful! I love the simple touches.

    • I have seen conflicting names- it looks like rose hips to me, but they are called crabapples by Joann Fabrics (where I bought them). Thank you!!
