Gather autumn inspiration from this natural and simple fall home tour from the Fall into Home series loaded with farmhouse and rustic charm.
Although the summer heat hasn’t quite given up its grasp on us here in New England, I’m optimistic that crisp fall days are ahead. I look forward to the thermometer dropping below 80 degrees and the changing leaves. Fall is by far my favorite season! I’m so excited to join the Fall into Home Tour today hosted by my lovely friend Rachel from Maison de Pax. Make sure to visit the other gorgeous fall homes at the bottom of the page.
If you’re dropping by here for the first time, welcome! My name is Nina, and I live in Metrowest Massachusetts with my DIYer husband Mack, our three young children, and our sweet old golden retriever Lucy. We are working hard to transform our dated and dark 1980s colonial into a light and bright home filled with farmhouse charm. One of my favorite projects we’ve completed so far is the first room in our tour:
This is our DIY Mudroom. I have always really loved the idea of having a drop zone for our coats and bags and baby gear. This past winter we made my dream into reality with built-ins, beadboard, A LOT of caulking, and white paint. From an organizational point of view, I’m in love! Of course, it’s also a lot of fun to decorate. I can’t wait until Christmas time, I have big plans for this room!
We went apple picking over the weekend, which is one of my favorite fall activities. I styled the mudroom beforehand, but I was imagining an apple picking picnic as I put this room together. Now I have a bushel and peck of apples (literally), so expect an apple recipe sometime this season!
Since it doesn’t really feel like fall yet, I resolved to keep my decor fairly simple this year. Simplicity is key when our house is still very much under construction and everything gets covered in drywall dust frequently- there’s a good chance we will resume work on a project and I’ll have to put everything away temporarily.
I tried to keep my seasonal additions to the kitchen natural. If you’re a regular, you may notice that I’ve been chipping away at the decor in this room and transforming it into a farmhouse space.
If you’ve never caught the posts about our kitchen before, you can check them all out here. We painted our orange oak cabinets two years ago and never looked back. It has made an incredible difference in our home!

I have been enjoying the addition of this tiered tray on our island. It’s a great place to store some of the stuff that’s usually kicking around the counters, and to bring out some decor that had been hiding in kitchen cabinets.
I also warmed up an empty space on the counter with a wooden tray, curly fig, and cinderella pumpkin. I’m loving the curly fig and having some greenery in my kitchen (fingers crossed I don’t kill it!).
Fall Family Room
This is a room on the brink of change. We have the new dark hardwood flooring stacked and ready, it’s just a matter of finding the time to get it done! I recently lightened up our DIY cottage coffee table in preparation, and the apothecary console is next on the docket for repainting. Eventually (a day I will rejoice!) those leather couches will be heading to our Camp, although I find that I appreciate them more as it gets cooler each year!
When I repaint the apothecary cabinet I plan to share how I originally made it- it was an Ikea hack of the Tarva dresser. I have it dressed up with my Barn Window Mirror and a Happy Harvest free printable that I will be sharing later this week.
I feel like I haven’t had my last word on my fireplace decor, but I love all of the birch logs and mercury glass so far. These are some of my favorite pieces to transition from fall into winter. My birch candle holders are a favorite (they are tucked inside the lanterns with some pip berries) versatile touch.
Well, that brings my tour to an end. Thank you so much for stopping by! Make sure to stop by and visit my sweet friend Abby next, her home is always lovely!

I went through this post this year again because of your email today and I completely forgot how much I loved your Fall mudroom. Do you recall where you purchased that hanging rope mirror or the coat hooks it’s hanging on?
Hi, Kara! Thank you so much. It was from Homegoods, but here’s a similar mirror (affiliate link).
I love your farmhouse sink! Do you know which brand/model it is?
Hi, Jenna! It’s from Ikea! I shared my review here: https://www.ninahendrick.com/ikea-farmhouse-sink/
Your home is just stunning! You have beautiful taste! We just bought our first home, and I’m excited to try and create a farmhouse look too. Would you mind sharing the paint colors on your walls?
Your home is just beautiful! I love your style – it’s so warm and charming. Would you share where you found your adorable owl salt shakers? They are just one of things that caught my eye on the tour :-)
Thank you so much for your sweet words Amy! The owl salt shakers were something my Mom spotted at Walmart a few years ago and gave me as a gift- she thinks they were Better Homes & Gardens.
Oh beautiful home. It’s wonderful

Your house looks just like I would expect a cozy, well-decorated home to look like in the fall. Your mudroom is dreamy, and I’m really crushing on the display you did on your apothecary cabinet. That picture immediately caught my eye in the graphic for the entire tour.
