Farmhouse Fall Bedroom Decor with a Story

The harvest season in full swing and autumn right at our back door, I find it irresistible to bring that beauty inside. Most of us see fit to decorate our living spaces, but I’m curious…do you seasonally decorate your bedroom too? I won’t say I always do due to lack of time. However, today I’m sharing my farmhouse fall bedroom decor.

Truth be told that most often my bedroom is dark when I wake up, and I may go in there a few times during the day to grab something or catch a cat nap. However, with the imminent colder temps on their way, I tend to be inside more, so I want my “sanctuary” to be quintessentially cozy and inviting too.

If you’d like, take a peek at our bedroom remodel in this post. It is quite the journey for us and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Here’s a glimpse at a pic of what my bedroom typically looks like through the spring and summer months. Since I forgot to take a true before, this one will suffice.

Can you blame me for being too wrapped up in my project to take a before? As soon as I began doing my fall cleaning, I got focused in getting rid of webs and dust. Spiders be gone! This leads me to ask, do you do a fall cleaning, like a thorough spring cleaning, too?

It’s my time to purge before full-on-furnace time and fireplace hits. I feel like it tucks us in for the winter season. Plus, it helps me prepare for the upcoming holidays too.

BLANK SLATE

Okay, so here’s what I did. Pulled E’ERYTHING OUT so I would have a completely blank slate to start from once I cleaned. aaaahhh…it felt so good! At this point I had already washed and ironed the linens and drapes.

As a bonus, I have new linen bedding. Lemme just say that I have been waiting years to finally have linen. It is by far a favorite textile of mine and I’ve been tucking away pennies to get us some. Major happy dance by this mama! I purchased the natural linen sheets HERE and the off-white duvet HERE.

Though as an aside, I buy a king size comforter and duvet because I have a blanket-stealing husband and the queen size is too short to rightfully defend myself. The problem with that though is when you purchase the king duvet, you get king shams which are far too long for my queen pillows. This is my solution to the problem…fold over and add a button. haha.

PILLOW LOVE

Also, that long bed pillow has a story too. I found a large length of remnant linen yardage at the thrift store a few years back. This was the real deal, not itchy stuff. I was elated and made this pillow with DIY grain sack stripes for our family room. However, a year or so ago this is what my kids did to it when they found a hole.

Yup. That be a HOLE. Anyhoo, I’m not one to quit so easily. This pillow had some sentimental value to me in relation to the babies I’ve lost so I didn’t want to toss it. Instead, I took some scrap gray ticking fabric and a piece of handmade crochet trim and fixed ‘er up.

Now it proudly resided on my bed where the kiddos can come in and beat each other with it. le sigh… I love it though. They adore being in our bedroom and that makes this mama happy.

BACK TO THE BEDROOM

Back to my farmhouse fall bedroom decor tour. ahem. I had also taken down all my cha-blingy crystals and given them a much needed cleaning too.

If you’d like to have my glass cleaning recipe that is AH-MAZING. I use it on my mirrors and windows for a streak-free shine.

GLASS CLEANING RECIPE
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup rubbing alcohol
  • 8-10 drops of essential oil, if you like

Meanwhile, in the background you can see my chippy white cupboard I use as my armoire.

I’ve removed the items on top, cleaned and have that blank slate I was looking for. As I turn around you’ll see my antique dresser in all its time-worn loveliness.

The story of finding this piece is funny. I sent JC on a go-get-um errand about an hour away. When he got there the guy was happy drunk. The man kept saying how he and his wife thought it was so ugly and just wanted rid of it. No problem! Come to mama. Then I was like…”did he have any more ‘junk’?” You know I would’ve asked. tsk.

You can also see my hand-me-down chartreuse yellow embossed chair in the corner. It has a bit of damage and wear too, but I love it. When I removed everything to clean and start again, I put back everything I wanted to keep in place – like my antique lamp I scored at a garage sale for 15 bucks and my handmade crochet runner from the thrift store. My kinda treasure right there.

TIME TO ADD FALL TOUCHES

I’ll begin my farmhouse fall bedroom decor tour by sharing a peek at the what you see when you walk in the bedroom door.

As I mentioned, we have new bedding which is a great start, however, let’s take a closer look. What you see above my bed is trash…er…#trashure. The large plaster frame was in the trash, and the oval wooden frame with domed glass (not seen) was in the trash. However, the typeset drawer and mini art were from the flea market and thrift store. Layering is where it’s at y’all.

JC’s eye might twitch with the chippiness of it all, but it’s telling me a story of nostalgia I could listen to over and over again. Since I’m after fall touches, I love the oranges and golds paired with the wood tones to give the cozy feel.

My barn wood rack with 1800’s hand-forged nails found in a box of junk a guy gave me is simple and functional. I also found that basket for a quarter and filled it with Autumn Joy (aka. sedum) from my garden. In addition, all my hats are second-hand too. I’m a sucker for natural hats. This one reminds me of Anne of Green Gables. Plus, my mix-n-match thrifted curtains are hanging on the 1920’s swing-arm rods I found on eBay.

My laundry basket cart is one of my most favorite flea market finds. In it holds my extra crochet pillows I’ve sourced from thrift stores too.

When I do an about-face, my cupboard is showcasing another fall vignette. I always have my childhood laundry basket there. It used to sit in my bedroom as a child filled with my stuffed animals. Along with the basket are some amber apothecary bottles, a miniature oil painting, and an empty oval wooden frame.

As I back up you can see my piano face closet transom with my thrifted drapes on a scrap barn wood rod as a curtain. In the corner is a thrifted basket made of coconut hulls with an antique cider gallon jug inside to hold the grass from my garden.

Last, but not least, my dresser got a few autumnal touches as well. I can never resist trimming all my limelight hydrangea and drying them. You can see how to dry them in this post HERE.

    Larissa, your room is just lovely! That dresser is gorgeous, and the linens and lace beautiful. Our bedroom in this house is itty-bitty, and there’s not a single closet in this house, so we inprovised and built a closet in the attic. We have a small rack on the back of the door which works for us for now, but storage is a real issue. We have a queen sized bed set up on a waterbed base with drawers, one tall dresser, one mirrored lower dresser. one bedside table on hubby’s side and that is all that fits with a small path around the bed, usually filled with dogs We have 4 large dogs who alternate spending time on the bed, so I have a large collection of quilts and comforters whch are our top layer on the bed to keep the down comforter clean. I do the same king quilts on queen bed for the same reason!

    One of the only things my hubby and I differ on is window treatments. He like blackout shades and I’d prefer none, or light lace. I’ll be looking for some swing arm curtain rods. I’ve never seen them and they loom a perfect compromise!

      Thank you! Your situation sounds similar. We definitely live in our bedroom. haha. We have black out curtains behind my lace so that we can have the dark we like due to neighbors and such. It makes it nice.

    Hi Larissa, boy have you been a busy bee! Your room is a warm and inviting sanctuary, and I love all your textiles. I am just about to start our fall deep clean. Thank you for sharing your glass cleaning recipe, I am looking forward to using that on my mirrors, windows and glass front cabinet doors.

      Yes, just a bit. oy! It felt so good though. I just finished my cave-dwelling cleaning of my boys room and I nearly got lost in there! 😀 I’m all about not using toxins to pollute my home and this is by far the best recipe I’ve found that actually works.
