How I'm Adding Fall Warmth to our home Despite my Love Affair with White


I have a lot of white furniture in our home as well as tons of white can I add Fall warmth with all that white?  

I have had a love affair with copper for years and it can quickly add fall warmth to a room.      I especially love the way it pops when mixed in with generous amount of white

I decided to use my copper / white technique in the big built in cabinet in the family dining room and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

Autumn is truly the year's last,  loveliest smile don't you think?

The centerpiece in the fall cabinet is a white metal vase filled with hydrangia's that I recently picked up at a yard sale for $8

The vase came with all the Hydrangia's but of course I had to add a few touches of my own.    

The fall leaves and white flowers are my contribution to the floral design....

Moving on down the the right side of the cabinet.....

The tall brass candle stick is a recent yard sale's very very heavy!

More copper and white on this side of the cabinet.....

The Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast sign came from Dollar General..... 

Now I want to share some photo's of other fall rooms in my home and how my white / copper technique is working out for me......

The family room is at the far end of the dining,  I have to keep them both in harmony with each

I have the fireplace in the family room decorated for fall with colors that go well with the pops of copper in the dining area.    I may yet add a couple of small copper pieces to the fireplace..... 

  Here's the entry.......

 I think using a similar color scheme in these rooms has really began to pull everything together for a warm cozy fall look in our home.   
I've only shared the fireplace in the family room and I can't wait to share the rest of the room in an upcoming post.    I've changed the slip covers on the sofa and love seat....made a fall wreath to hang over the sofa.....decorated the top of the piano......well,   you'll see it all soon!    hugs.....
