Fall Home Tour: Using Color and Texture to Create a Cozy Home
Hello friends! It's officially been TWO years since I started this Home Decor blog! Wow, time sure flies.
I'm so happy you've been with me on this exciting journey. Creating cozy and welcoming spaces is my passion and I hope you've been able to glean some inspiration over these past 24 months.
Wild Rose Country Home has been such a fun creation! I really had no idea what I was getting into when I started it, but my expectations have been blown away by your support and love.
So a HUGE thank-you to all of you! I am excited to keep bringing you informative decor blog posts and give you the tools to make your home into the haven you want to see.
The first day of fall came and the snow flurries forecast came right along with it, haha. I feel like the fall season is so short where I live. In light of this, I really try and keep my spending to a minimum as much as I can. Reusing items from last year or even baskets that can be filled with varying seasonal stems saves money. I love that!

Most of the year my decor is either summer or winter focused, but there is something I can't resist about fall and its beautiful foliage. This year I found these wood planters and orange mums at my local Home Hardware store on clearance.
You can guarantee it that these planters will be a staple at my front door each season. I'm hoping to find some gigantic pumpkins for Halloween I can put on top of them when the temperature drops and the mums die (pretty much today, I think!). Layering rugs creates a texture that feels warm and inviting.
I also had the privilege of working with Home hardware on their 2020 color of the year campaign and painted my pantry this warm and rich honey-toned color called Honey I'm Home.
Isn't it a gorgeous color!?
I added a cute rug and some convenient storage containers too.
You can see how adding color adds to that seasonal feel!
The bedroom is one of the best places to decorate. I usually switch out pillows, add seasonal florals over the headboard and a cozy blanket. This fur blanket is the perfect one for these cool crisp fall nights.
I try as much as possible to keep each area of my home within the same color palette so each room flows right to the other.
I got the plaid furry pillow covers from Chapters Indigo this year. I LOVE the quality of their products! I can't say good enough things about them. You will not be disappointed with any home decor item you buy from them.
In the living room I added a few little touches of warm browns, ambers, gold and burnt orange. Lighting is so important to me. I have to see balanced candlelight in each area during the fall/winter.
I changed up the blanket on my chair but kept the yellow throw pillow my daughter made. The branches in the vase make it feel very fall-like in this corner. This beautiful handmade Turkish rug pillow is by a wonderful company in London, Ontario called Mohr Living. The pillows are unique and such great quality. Check out her site!
I switched the entry way mirror for a gold round one I had in another room. Again, the new color and texture creates that warm fall feel without it being too much.
