I am back today with our ”new” kitchen countertop dressed up for Fall. You can read here how I made our dated laminate countertop look like wood.I started by choosing a color palette that matches the overall feeling I wanted our home to evoke this Fall. Our summer has been pretty hectic to say the least; I had pneumonia and my dear aunt passed away suddenly at age 67. I really needed our home to be soothing and peaceful this Fall. I chose to decorate with whites, blues and greens. I think color is pretty powerful and it can affect our mood tremendously. I always recommend starting with a particular feeling you are after and picking a color palette accordingly, even if it means decorating with non-traditional seasonal colors.Every season, I like to bring nature indoors. Most of my seasonal decorating comes from the great outdoors. This fall, I went with mums, green apples, Bartlett pears, nuts, gourds, hydrangeas and gorgeous blue, green and white pumpkins. I treated myself to this adorable vintage cow print from 1871Farmhouse on Etsy.I also set up a Fall beverage station. We will be drinking a lot of mulled apple cider this upcoming season. I put some cinnamon sticks, mulling spices and dried apple slices in pretty ironstone cups.I will be back later this week with more details on our fall beverage station.
We use this long and narrow cupboard as a pantry and I sprinkled a few pumpkins and hydrangeas from my sister’s garden.I had plans to paint our pantry a lighter color this summer but I found another piece that I love even more. More on that later…
I did not do too much with our kitchen table yet because I am debating painting it white.Since our laminate countertop is sporting a much darker shade and our chairs and light fixtures are black, I feel that our kitchen is starting to look a bit heavy. Also, I am not digging the two wood tones together. What do you think? I would love to have your input.I hope you enjoyed this little tour of our farmhouse kitchen dressed up for Fall. Thank you so much for visiting!
