Hello Friends! There is never a dull moment in this house. There’s always some sort of home improvement project happening here. Whether it’s a wall coming down, baseboards being installed, or electric work being finished up. But I do feel like the end is in sight! With that said, I feel like I can finally style a couple rooms for a decor tour! Today I wanted to share our Dining Room and our Kitchen. I like how they are separate, and yet flow into each other. The theme I wanted to design around was a Cinderella Aqua/Turquoise Farmhouse feel.
This post includes affiliate links, but I only share things that I LOVE & think you will too.
My little girl loves everything princess, so I thought it would be sweet to do a subtle Cinderella twist on both these rooms.She even helped me deck it all out for Halloween/fall. One thing I am really trying to be intentional about is letting go and not being a control freak when my kids help.
I have to tell myself to take a breath, and that I have to let them learn the creative process on their own without too much “hoovering” (but a little bit of touch ups/adjustments afterwards is okay, am I right?)
From this view of the dining room you can see into the kitchen.
Darker, moody accents like amber soap bottles & wooden cooking utensils are a favorite design element of mine during the fall.
When I’m feeling super fancy I’ll set out some maple or oak leaves in a vase. It’s still a little early for them to be turning colors here, but I think that even the green ones give off fall vibes.
I’m obsessed with my farmhouse table! It really makes this whole space come alive. And I love how Silas and I built it. That makes it extra special.
This storage bench was originally used in our last house in our master, but it actually fits perfect here. And since the table is on the tall side, the kids can sit on it for an extra “boost.”
I love mixing old with new, but sometimes you have to take a step back and made sure you aren’t over doing it with you styling. Sometimes less is more.
This kitchen still has a ways to go, but I’m loving it in it’s current state of simplicity!
Now, I actually have a whole pumpkin patch of heirloom pumpkins growing in my garden, but while I’m waiting for them to ripen up I got out my fake ones. They are all from Michaels. But I actually added paint and wax on most of them to give them a little more realism. You can check out my post about that HERE.

Sometimes the subtle details are the best. Here you can see I snuck a couple pumpkins under my island in a large crate.
This sweet Pumpkin Patch Truck is a Free Printable HERE on my blog.
That’s all for now! Hope you have fun decorating for fall! I am for sure! I’m off to have a princess tea party in this space with June.
