HARVEST HAVEN FALL TOUR 2016

Grey and white hime exterior with black details - Fall porch decor featuring mercury glass pumpkins and potted grass
Welcome to my Fall home tour, if this is your first time visiting, welcome to CitrineLiving! Thank you so much for joining us in the Harvest Haven Fall Tour 2016, hosted by Summer of She Leaves A Little SparkleIf you’re coming from Laila’s beautiful home of Designs By Laila, I’m thrilled to have you here! If you’ve been reading along with me for a while, then you may have already seen my Fall tour from last year – if not, you can have a peek here. My porch last year was rich with red mums and burgundy grasses. To change it up, I decided to keep the look more neutral this year, and use some grasses with just a hint of red.
Grey and white hime exterior with black details - Fall porch decor featuring mercury glass pumpkins and potted grass As with most of my seasonal decor, I keep it pretty simple. The past couple of years, I’ve used my metallic pumpkins and gourds tied together with mostly neutral elements. This year, I was challenged to find a way to use the same items in a different way. I also didn’t want to spend a fortune replacing it all. I wanted to keep the Fall theme to a minimum, even more so than last year. What I really wanted to do was bring in the essence of the season through color and texture. If you look closely in the above photo, some of those pumpkins are my mercury glass and resin ones from last year – I figured why not try them on the porch and see how they look?! They were mainly used in my Fall tablescapes, which you can see here and here.

I’ve had it for quite a few years and I love it more each time I see it.  It was the perfect element to bring in a warm layer as you enter our home.

Let’s move over to the dining room, where you’ll get a heavy mix of pattern and texture. If you’re a new visitor, then you’ve probably never seen so much in one space! Our dining room can be a tricky space to decorate seasonally, but I always still love to pile it on.

Fall tablescape with metallic touches featuring vibrant red, deep plum and verdant green centrepieceI’m also quite new to floral arranging. I actually love to use faux flowers, and I use them often, throughout the year. I decided to take a stab at my skills to see what I could come up with and since the seasonal theme here is color, I wanted something to balance out my red lamp. I went to the grocery store to see what I could find, and I came up with this color combination of red, green and deep purple. I didn’t want it feeling too much like Christmas, so I decided to add some figs (the color is amazing, don’t you think?) and grapes, as well as red pears to fill in the holes. I could have used a few more, I think!
Fall tablescape with metallic touches featuring vibrant red, deep plum and verdant green centrepieceI quickly learned that those pears are very heavy, after my arrangement fell over a couple of times…clearly a rooky mistake!
Fall tablescape with metallic touches featuring vibrant red, deep plum and verdant green centrepieceBlue is a consistent color in our decor, so I wanted a touch of it on the table as wel. I layered 3 runners in grey and soft blue as the base of my tablescapte. I originally had light blue hydrangeas in this arrangement, to pick up on the blues, but they wilted so fast, I had to replace them with these green ones from our yard. It turned out even better like this in the end.

Mirrors and trays are fantastic as a base for any centrepiece. You can find more of my tablescapes and how I style them differently here.

Next is our living room, the center of our home. It’s visible from each space and I have more pattern happening in here as well.

They make a huge impact and will be so fun t decorate throughout the season. I didn’t change them for Fall however, I kept them the same and decided to move a few things around on the ottoman and stools.

I replaced all of our pillows with a mix of dark grey, cream and navy in lux velvets and crewel work. Before, our pillows had a slightly more boho|global vibe going on (see it here) and I wanted to bring in a little more sophistication to the space. Playing off of my blues, I added some yellow-gold coloured decorative wheat as a strong focal point against the booshelves, to draw your eye in, and to enhance the gold tones already in the space.

Last stop is the kitchen, where the theme continues and where I have more ginger jars as well. I love my blue and white collection (which is continuously growing), and I hate to have to take it down, just to decorate for the season.

Again, since there’s plenty of gold tones in this space, I used more yellow to play off of them. A few small white pumpkins, some ceramic and some real, add another subtle layer of the season.

    I’m a new follower. Your home is absolutely stunning! I’m a bit confused about your floral arrangement. Did you mix faux and real flowers throughout it? Just wondering because you said you got them from a grocery store and they all look real!

    Greetings from southern Ontario, Canada!! Loved touring your home – we like SO many of the same things!! Like you, I have quite a collection of blue/white pieces that are grouped together on a buffet in the living room. A few years back, I used many of my blue/white ginger jars to hold tea bags, sugar and so on. What I liked about that was that I didn’t see it done in any of my friends’ kitchens as it’s nice to be a bit different when decorating. I’m finding I’m also being drawn to that lovely color on the figs – it’s so beautiful, it would make a perfect still life painting. Speaking of art, can you tell me a bit about that large piece in your dining room, please? For example: is it a print? Is the woman of a certain ethnic group? It’s rather hard to see but I just love it!

      Elaine, I’m so excited to have you here! I love that you have a love for blue and white like I do! And I love the idea of using them as canisters! My mother was a huge influence on me growing up, she was always decorating our hone and reinventing spaces. She has such a love for classic elements in design, which has been instilled in me from a very young age :) And actually the painting is by her – it was an engagement gift to my husband and I. It’s oil on canvas and it is an arabic woman in a gown. She’s a fabulous artist too! Thank you again for your kind words, I’m so excited that you like what you see here! xo

  1. […] Tamara at Citrine Living has a gorgeous home, and I like how she transformed her blue and white pieces with simple wheat stalks. The arrangement in her dining room is a show stopper–so smart to use pears, figs and grapes in the decor. The gold leaves remind me of the ones I spray painted and used as place cards a couple of years ago. […]
