Country Sampler Autumn Decorating SIP 2018 - - Inside -

As the weather cools, homeowners across the coun­try be­gin the en­joy­able task of bring­ing fall fla­vor to their in­te­ri­ors. Brightly col­ored pump­kins and gourds start dot­ting shelves and ta­bles, mums re­place daisies, and au­tumn’s har­vest en­joys a spe­cial spot on the din­ner ta­ble. Tour three of our fa­vorite homes— from a Cal­i­for­nia cot­tage to a North­woods cabin—as they pre­pare for fall.

TOP: In­tro­duce un­ex­pected colors to your au­tumn dec­o­rat­ing pal­ette. A blue-and­white rug grounds this liv­ing area, echo­ing a plaid throw and pil­lows in var­i­ous shades on the sofa. The cool hues are re­peated in a pil­low tucked into a wire bas­ket atop the china cab­i­net.

BOT­TOM LEFT: Anne Nash named her com­pany Pedal Home In­te­ri­ors af­ter a fa­vorite sym­bol—the bi­cy­cle. “I was think­ing of some­one be­ing down­town on an old vin­tage bike with their bas­ket full of farm­ers-mar­ket pro­duce ped­al­ing home— be­cause that’s where they want to be,” she says, “a place where they feel comfy and at home.”BOT­TOM RIGHT: Un­sure about wall­pa­per­ing your room? Try this stick-on black-and­white buf­falo check that can be eas­ily re­moved when you’re ready for a change. Heir­loom pieces add a layer of nos­tal­gia to home decor; here, Anne’s hus­band’s boy­hood cow­boy boots and his par­ents’ old farm bar­rel are a re­minder of sim­pler times.
