Today let me show you the rest of my New Hampshire home decorated for Fall. This Fall I am decorating with primarily natural tones and materials and things from my garden.
Natural Autumn Decorating Style
We are moving into my kitchen and dining area so I can show you all the natural touches I’ve added there. Earlier this week I shared part 1 of my home tour in my living room and entryway area.
When I am getting prepared to style a space in my home I usually gather all the things that I might want to use.
For this Fall I have really been embracing nature and sprinkling natural elements throughout my home.

my top tip
Shopping your own home is one of my top decorating tips for you! There’s no need to be running out every season to buy all new things…just see what you already have and think of ways to reuse it in a different way.
My kitchen and dining area are open to each other. We have a fairly small home and don’t have a separate dining room.
The best fit for our space is a round dining table that doesn’t take up too much space and still allows for traffic flow without bumping into the chairs.
my Table & Chairs
After I added a cream-colored table throw over my dark wood round table, I added my favorite placemats that I bought at a local New Hampshire shop (Homebody NH) last Fall. But I just found almost the same Fiber Leaf Placemats on Crate & Barrel. The natural look and the shape are just so pretty on the table!
Sticking with my natural autumn style for Fall I am using pretty pressed flower dishes ( I also bought these at Homebody NH). I couldn’t find the exact dishes for you anyway in stock but I did find dishes on clearance at Crate & Barrel…great deals too, $3.97 for the salad dish and $5.97 for the dinner plates!!
The dark brown faux leather plate chargers are from Hobby Lobby ($2.99 on sale) but you will have to pick those up in-store.

Fall Kitchen Decor
On my last big thrift store haul, I found 2 covered ceramic jars…in different parts of the store so I’m glad I was paying attention!! They were good deals too. $2.99 for the larger one and $3.99 for the small…go figure, thrift store pricing!!
On my kitchen island, I added a wicker tray to hold one of the thrifted jars and filled it with preserved burgundy eucalyptus & dried sorghum that I bought at Trader Joe’s and let dry out naturally.
The tray is also where I keep a stack of our everyday cloth napkins.. and finished it with a pretty pumpkin because you know it’s Fall!
I’ve used some of the burgandy eucaplyptus and also dried wheat throughout my home to connect the look and feel of my home.
On the coffee bar counter, I used the other ceramic container and filled it with dried wheat stalks. To hide the outlet plug on the wall I covered it with a big round wicker tray.
This was a good spot to keep my most used cookbooks, a small lamp, and of course a plant!!
I’m going to put up links below for my cookbooks. The Cook’s Illustrated one is an all-around excellent cookbook but is out of print so check out the used book options on the Amazon link (the used start at $11 today)
cookbooks I love
In the corner of my dining area is a corner china cabinet. It came with the house and was that dark 80s stain color. So far I have repainted it 3 times…what can I say, I get bored!
Right now I have left it this dark green shade (SW Coriander & Olive) for a couple of years and it really works with the neutral green on the walls (SW Ancient Marble) and the seafoam green color of my dining set.
It is definitely one of my favorite areas of my home to decorate for every season.
more natural Fall kitchen touches
When I saw the picture of this wall basket on a vintage store’s Facebook page I knew I had to have it!! The store is located in my Mom’s town and I asked her to go downtown and grab it for me.
The shape of the basket is so unique and I have never come across one like it before. It has the perfect little pocket for me to add a few more dried flower bunches.
My last Fall touch in the kitchen is my copper flower bucket that I added a bunch of cool looking dried wheat that I found at Hobby Lobby.
