I wanted to share some fall decor on my dining table. I have been inspired by Kim at Savvy Southern Style to bring out some antlers and use more creamy colors. I'm not sure what happened, but something clicked for me and although I always love dark, warm color especially for Fall, I put together this lighter tabletop and I am loving it.
One thing that I think makes this whole thing work, are the drop cloth window treatments I "borrowed" from Kim's sister, Kelly, at The Essence of Home. I love the texture of these and how the light streams through. I did not bleach these because I wanted more of the natural color.
The runner is a very simple one I made from matelasse fabric I had. I actually made three of them and have one on the piano, and one on the buffet.
I used a silver tray filled with gourds, pumpkins and antlers. I could have done all white, but I have to have a little color!
I filled my Poole "Lancaster Rose" silver wine bucket with more weeds and assorted greenery from outside.
I've mentioned it before, but this is the table I made from wormy chestnut boards that came off my great grandmother's guest house here. I designed the base and had a local craftsman make it for me. The inspiration was from an old issue of Country Living Magazine. I do love this table, and it is so special to me not only because I made it but because of the connection to my family.
We have used different variations of chairs from ladder backs, to a bench, to parson's chairs, and now the Duncan Phyfe, which I love. I do think drop cloth slip covers would be fabulous on the leather parson's chairs as an option.
I hope you are not in shock seeing me using creamy whites and silver for Autumn! I really love this look and actually have a tablescape I'll be showing soon with Noritake "Condoro" in this setting.
