I have been decorating for fall for a couple weeks now. I know, crazy right? I like to move things around to make sure I find the perfect placement. and I think I may have found the perfect combination of rustic, beautiful and fall in this rustic fall kitchen vignette.
Vignettes are kinda like my therapy. When I am feeling like I am in a decorating rut or just need to make a little change to a space they are my go-to solution. Mainly because I love to shop my home for things I already own to create a completely new look. Stay tuned for my vignette 101 styling guide and my ultimate shop your home guide coming to the blog soon.
For this look I started with a base of an old cutting board. It was sitting on a lower shelf in my kitchen, unnoticed and not being used so I snagged it up to begin my build. The next steps were the most fun. I gathered a few different textures, like stoneware, metal (the scale) greenery and terra cotta. I will elaborate more in my Vignette 101 Styling Guide but what you need to know now is it is important to bring together different textures. Our eyes are naturally drawn to the differences, making this rustic fall kitchen vignette a beautiful focal point on my upcycled kitchen island.
I have decided to use a dark plum in my fall decor this year and oooooh my word. The only think I regret is not adding this to my traditional fall colors sooner. FUN FACT… This color is very similar to the colors I used in my wedding. This color has been catching my eye for years but for whatever reason I have not embraced it. It is not a very common color but it corporates well with traditional golds and oranges. This plum pumpkin is from Hobby Lobby and you can see my other cozy favorites from Hobby Lobby HERE.
Luckily I already had the scale tucked kinda inconspicuously in the corner and I decided to bring her out to shine. The orange on the front face is just an added bonus. This was one of the best thrifty finds to-date. I found this beauty for $4 at an old closed down country store near Mammoth Cave. I love those finds that come with a cool story. Literally this place was falling apart, the floors were so squeaky I thought they might give way beneath my feet. There was so must dust and mold it was a little spooky but wow was it worth it to go picking in that place. It is usually the most unexpected places that you find the best treasures!
The whiskey jug was from an estate sale this past weekend, can you beleive I scored this beauty for $10…yep! I couldn’t believe it either. And last but not least, you may recognize the little harvest sign from Walmart’s fall release.
