As an avid gardener, I love to bring the outdoors in and decorate my rustic farmhouse home based on what’s going on outside. Now that we are heading into fall, I am totally ready for the chill in the air, cozy nights in front of a fire and lots of fall flowers. Are you ready for fall too?
I’m so excited to be part of the Brilliant Colors of Fall Home Tour hosted by Kelly from the Tattered Pew and Mansa from This is Simplicite. If you stopped by from Anne and AnnMarie’s over at Simply 2 Moms welcome to my home and garden. Anne and Anne Marie both have such beautiful homes. They are great friends and I love all of their creative home, garden and lifestyle ideas.

Welcome to My Rustic Farmhouse Fall Home Tour
I live in a quiet suburban neighborhood in northern New Jersey. As you pull up to my home, you’ll be greeted by expansive gardens throughout the property. We’ve lived here for 22 years and I created, designed and planted every one of these gardens myself.
My front entry walkway cottage garden is my pride and joy. I designed it to bloom all season long with lots of gorgeous flowers and pretty seasonal colors.
Right now, the garden is still transitioning into fall. But I’m starting to add fall plantings and lots of pretty garden mums. It’s still a little early here to plant mums because they are not bred to last very long.
Come On In!
Don’t be surprised if my dogs, Bodie and Koda accompany us during the home tour. They are always with me!
When we renovated our home 15 years ago from a small, three bedroom ranch to a four bedroom center hall colonial, we wanted to have an open floor concept on the main floor.
It was a challenge, but we widened doorways and made a half wall between the front entry and dining room.
If this is your first time here, this antique bench used to look SO DIFFERENT before I painted the upholstery fabric. I was surprised how well it turned out and it was so easy and inexpensive to do!
Rustic Farmhouse Kitchen
When you first walk into my home, the modern farmhouse kitchen is one of the first rooms you see from the front entry hall. It is the hub of the home. You can usually find me in here cooking something delicious.
I remodeled this kitchen by myself almost three years ago by painting the cabinets. Looking back, I can’t believe I waited so long to do it. If you are considering it, DO IT! I have no regrets and wish I did it sooner.
My favorite part of this DIY kitchen remodel is the range hood. I refinished it with gel stain and it looks incredible! The gel stain brought out all those wood details and it is a statement piece in the room. It might be my favorite DIY to this day!
Because I have a small kitchen, we swapped out a kitchen table for this island. When we remodeled, I bought these really comfy bar stools so we would linger longer as a family around the table. We used to have saddle stools and we just didn’t hang out here for very long after meals.
Rustic Farmhouse Dining Room
The dining room sits to the right of the front entry hall. We love to entertain friends and family here. Even when we are not entertaining, I always have a pretty centerpiece to decorate the table.
This year, I kept my fall centerpiece pretty simple with some pretty faux cabbage roses, acorn pics, tiny gourds and fern bunches.
Rustic Farmhouse Living Room
To the left of the entry hall is our living room. Since we do not have a formal living room, this is our family room where we love to hang out together.
It’s still little too warm here to enjoy a fire indoors, but you will find my family and I here most nights streaming a fun show or watching football. I can’t wait for that first cozy fall night!
Rustic Farmhouse Laundry Room
And it was even more fun decorating it for fall.
