HELLO November!!! I’lltell you what… Ocotber comes around here and that means that the holidays will just fly by. Mad rush for decorating, celebrating, preparing and planning for what’s ahead. But one thing is for sure, decorating is at the top of that priority list. Welcome to our Fall flair at Gully Creek Cottage!
I love tradition and I love rustic charm. That is my theme throughout our entire home. If I find something that I love, I’m going to hang on to it for a very long time. When it has sentimental value, then it’s going to be around a whole lot longer. Blending old with new, meaningful plus charm…yes.
My rule of thumb for shopping home decor… buy things that you immediately fall in love with, that you can’t walk away from, and that you know you will use for a very long time. But keeping in mind that down the road if you change your scheme that it will still work with whatever you go with.
of what to look for when shopping for new decor and my own personal tips:
- White porcelain: it’s neutral and classic = will always be stylish and can work with any decor style. *white pumpkins, white dinner plates, and large decorative white pitcher
- Pewter chargers: pewter chargers will outlive me! They are also classic, will work with many decor changes and they are exceptionally beautiful!
- Bright white mixed in with color: will add the perfect balance to any theme as shown here with the Fall oranges, browns, and yellows!
- Texture: mixing different textures such as the wood pilgrims, wood runner & wood risers in this case, with the delicate porcelain, the pewter, and burlap runner. They make for a beautiful tapestry!

When it comes down to it… choose what you love, what speaks to you and what reflects you and your family!
Your HOME should be a reflection of all these things. It’s what makes your home- your refuge. A blessed November to you ~❤︎
