{ Modern Cottage & Farmhouse Fall Dining Room Decor }

Hello to day number 2 on this little beginning of fall tour around our little suburban cottage!!! I told you guys I don't get kid around about the holidays haha.Today I'm sharing a little sneak peek of our dining room..It's not fully decorated & most likely will change 10 more times before the end of September, but it's definitely starting to look cozy, warm & festive! I used a lot of stuff I had from last season, not only because I wanted to start out slowly, but I've noticed that I do this every year, then randomly start throwing in new pieces..Maybe it's my hoarding of decor haha or my way of seeing what I'm using or can incorporate into this season without breaking the bank account!! We've recently added a bunch of new pieces in this space including a new rug from +Ruggable® 2-Piece Rug System  switched out tables AGAIN & so on..Come see the dining room splashed with a bit of fall decor!!

  
You guys know I'm always using decor in ways that aren't conventional...I set this runner on the ladder & loved it, so I just left it for now! I picked this up +Marshalls  last year for under $10!

  

I decided to add this little toolbox I found while junkin in my gram's shed to the china cabinet with some little burlap pumpkins from Dollar tree! The wreath is from +Kohl's .




Both of these frames are free vintage finds. 


 You can see the art DIY from last season here:DIY Dollar Tree Fall Art



I'm obsessed with our new washable rug from Ruggable!!! Seriously if you guys have a high traffic area or animals then this rug is for you! I have a whole post on it here:Ruggable Review


I'm loving this cozy modern farmhouse style!! I usually go really rustic/raw/chippy with decor, but recently have been loving the modern cottage/farmhouse style!

Hope you guys loved this fall dining room sneak peek!

Happy Tuesday!

{ Vintage Style FALL Mantel Decor }

Happy Labor Day guys!!! Hoping you all are having a lovely weekend with loved ones doing what you love! I wanted to get this post out today because it's September finally & you guys know what that means in the blogging world..Time for everything FALL related haha! In all seriousness we kind of have our own holiday schedule & September 1st is fair game for everything cozy & warm! I'll be doing a little Home series tour like last year showcasing different areas in our little suburban cottage decked out for the season. Today I'm sharing our ultra simple & rustic fireplace mantel using free junkin finds & some warm cozy fall accents! It seems like summer went by so fast here in Michigan, but we're grateful we got to take two little trips & our last one coming at the end of September. Truth be told, I actually love the cooler weather!! Grab something pumpkin spiced & come take a peek at our little cottage/farmhouse style fireplace for now ;)! 

I wanted a very simple, but cozy style fireplace & of course I wanted to use stuff I had already.. You guys know I love brown glass & I had a ton of these vintage brown bottles! I decided to use an old watering can with a rusty orange spout, some basic +Michaels Stores  terracotta pots & added some greenery from +IKEA USA ! I like how the pots bring in the orange I crave around this time of the year, but it's still pretty neutral! I decided to go with a more simple neutral space upstairs this year & our lower level has been splashed with some traditional fall colors & pumpkins! 

Sources: The ceramic pumpkins are from Dollar Tree, white pumpkins are from +Michaels Stores & the candle-holders are vintage!


  

I decided to add some neutral pillows, but that may change soon.. These are from +Marshalls . 


I picked up this little wood sign for under $6 last year +HomeGoods  & it literally made this little mantel! I totally forgot I had it & I wanted something rustic, traditional & with some fall theme wording, so this thing little decor item was perfect & cheap!   
**Stay tuned for some exciting news coming on the blog this week..#art #fall



So another thing about fall I crave are lights & the little ambiance they set..I don't know if it's the cozy fall feeling I crave or what, but when I spotted these cute little battery operated string lights from +Marshalls  for $9 I snagged them up! They're perfect for those cool fall evenings when it's too warm for the heat, but just a little fireplace warmth instead. Simple battery pack with a switch for those areas you have no wall plug!


I hope you guys liked this cozy little fireplace mantel! I'm curious as to when you guys start decorating for fall? Let me know down below & happy Monday!!!
