Some Subtle Fall Touches in our Dining Room


I hope you all have had a lovely first week of October! I finally finished adding some simple autumn touches to the dining room. I had planned on going with more traditional fall colors in here but ended up sticking with the more neutral color scheme we had in some of the other rooms. We got the pumpkins for just $3.99 at Trader Joe's. That's the most inexpensive I've seen these pumpkins and I was quite happy to snatch five of them up. And then I just added in some fresh eucalyptus bundles that were $2.99 and then some turkey and pheasant feathers that I've had for years.

  5. Was it Christopher Lowell that used to say that you could make a circle with your fingers and look at all your room settings and vignettes through it to see if you need to add or subtract something? You have it down perfect! Your home is lovely!

  8. Pefection! I noticed the color of your walls, I'm presently painting my dining room a light gray (using SW Mindful Gray) color I'm wondering if you see blue in yours at times. I haven't gotten very far, the further I go the more blue I seem to see. fondly ~lynne

    1. Thanks, Lynne! Yes, I think it definitely has a hint of a blue undertone to it. Most people consider it a "true gray" but I most definitely see the slight blue undertone.

  12. Your table is beautiful! I had to take a closer look to see if it was possibly made by you and I'm so happy to find out it is. That is incredibly well done and the stain is perfect. What an inspiration and I love your neutrals and natural decor.

    1. Hi! We are not sure of the manufacturer, but we purchased ours at Savvy in Williamsburg, VA(http://www.savvyinwilliamsburg.com) and they may be to order it through them or get a little more info.

  15. Hi!

    Your dining room is beautiful!

    Could you please tell us the width of your chandelier, the table width and the room dimensions. I'm having trouble selecting a chandelier and your proportions look great so I'd love to get an idea of what worked.

    Thanks!!!

  19. Hello there! I am so I love with your table! I tried your stain combination but Something isn't right..is there a certain way you put yours on? I put provincial on first, let dry and then the weathered gray. Also did you use any water or add on before it dried?..mine just doesn't look blended. Thank you so much!

    1. Thanks, Claudia! When Jenni did hers she didn't let the first coat dry, she just applied the second color right away--that may have helped it blend more evenly. Every piece and type of wood seems to take stain differently, so it can be hard to replicate an exact look from one piece to another. Hope this helps!

  20. Hi, Did you stain the chandelier? I ordered it, but it is antique white with just a little tan showing through. Yours looks much darker. Love your home! Trish

    1. Hi, Trish! I checked with Jenni and she said she hasn't done anything to hers.
