Fall Home Decor Tour – Navy and Rust

Hey everyone – welcome to my navy and rust fall home tour! I’m excited to be joining a fun group of bloggers sharing our fall decor today. The first stop on the tour is Randi from Randi Garret Design, her home is beautiful! You will die over her kitchen, check it all out here.

If you are stopping by from Randi’s house or one of the other fab ladies on the tour, thanks for checking out our lake home here in Michigan. We built this home a year ago, and I’ve been busy making it feel like home ever since.

Navy rust fall home decor

As you will soon see, blue and white are my favorite colors, but this year I decided to throw a few pops of rust and deep orange in to mix things up. Our living room is our favorite spot to enjoy the view (besides our backyard by the lake), so we made sure to have a cozy sectional big enough to fit our whole family.

It’s especially inviting with the candles and fireplace lit up.

fall kale planters

I  love to decorate with fresh flowers and plants. It’s my favorite way to change things out seasonally without adding a lot of clutter. I added some fall kale and cabbage to a planter on my coffee table for a fall touch that will last the whole season, well if I remember to water it…

I found most of the rust colored pillows inexpensively at H&M this year, and I love that they have a fall vibe without being bright orange.

I kept it simple on the mantel this year with a few pumpkins and beach grass I cut from the backyard.

I found this cool candelabra and added extra large 15 inch candles to it. I love the drama and warmth they add.

Sunflowers are always a favorite of mine in the fall, but I love to buy the little plants vs cut ones because they will last me a lot longer.

 Bonus, I can eventually transfer them to the ground and hope they pop up again next year.

Fall home decor master bedroom lake house

I brought fall into our master bedroom a little bit this year with a pretty coral colored mum from the local nursery and these Fleur de Lis pillows from Jenny Steffens Hobick Designs.

I can’t seem to get a photo in here without Charlie photobombing. He thinks this is actually his bed and he allows us to sleep in here sometimes with him. Luckily, he coordinates pretty well with the colors ;)

I’m still making the most of our hydrangeas in our yard, and I keep a fresh vase full in the kitchen at all times. We love to go apple picking here in Michigan, and homemade applesauce is on the agenda for this weekend.

Our entry got little pop of fall as well thanks to this leather bin and pillow.

You can almost sneak a peek of our fall front porch out the door. I’ll be sharing more of that later this fall, but I do have my fall window boxes full of mums and they are a favorite of mine to switch out with the seasons.

  1. I love everything about your cottage! Thank you for sharing. I have used many exterior pics as inspiration when we built our current home (near Toronto in Canada) and now using interior features for our upcoming build. I’ll try to share pictures.

  2. Love the decor! Where did you get your dresser under your TV in your bedroom? Do you have a link?

    1. It’s from J&N Stone in the color Price and the style Quartz. Or vice versa, if you google all that it should pop up!

  3. Love your home thank you for sharing.
    We are building and would love to see your floor plan, to see home you captured the beautiful scenery from front and back of house. Do you have an open floor plan. My favorite that I saw in this post is the family room with the sectional and big windows.
    Thank youGeri

    1. Hi Geri if you follow me on Instagram you can take the video tour which gives you a better feel for the space but unfortunately I’m not able to share the plans due to an agreement with my architect.

  4. Hello – thank you for sharing your beautiful home. Just curious as to where you got your living room ceiling light fixture. I have been looking for something similar. Thank you!

  5. Hello,
    I was wondering where your bed is from?? I think I read it was from Wayfair, but the link on your website it’s not working… could you maybe resend?? Thank you!
    Love your house :)

  6. Hey there Kelly

    Your home is stunning! I am in the process of trying to recreate your bedding for our guest bedroom! I think I have found almost everything. I was curious, where is the throw from that is seen on the kitchen table chair? That is so pretty.

    Thanks so much.

  7. Hi Kelly! I love everything about your house! It’s stunning. Thank you for sharing these photos for us as inspiration. I am looking for an electric fireplace insert but want one that looks realistic and yours looks like the perfect match. Do you mind sharing where you got it? Maybe the name/link if you remember?

    Thank you in advance!

    1. Hey Emily, this is one of those things that I didn’t think to write down. I just picked it out of a catalog, sorry I don’t have more info – thanks!

  8. Hi Kelly
    I found this site and absolutely love it! I live in Sweden and me and my husband is now planning to build a house and was wondering if it would be possible to see some more blueprints and some more pictures from the house exterior ?
    This house is absolutely beautiful!
    Sincerely and many thanks,

  9. I love this ceiling! My husband and I are planning an addition and want to build something similar. Can you tell me how this ceiling was constructed? Are the decorative boards appearing to be support beams screwed into the ceiling? What size boards did you use? Is that tongue-n-groove boards or ship lap? Your room is being used as our inspiration!!

  10. Hi Kelly
    My wife and I are redoing our fireplace and we really like the stone of yours.
    Can you tell me what stone it is and where it came from?
    Thank you

  11. Hi Kelly, I love everything about your lake house! We are remodeling a lake house in Idaho and want a fireplace just like yours. Can you share with us the type of stone you used on the great room fireplace?

    1. Hey Andrea, if you follow me on instagram (lilypadcottage) I have a saved story in my highlights all about this wood flooring with pros and cons that is really helpful if considering it. We do love it but it is a bit finicky when it comes to liquids. You need to wipe up spills right away due to the more porous nature of the raw finish. Thanks!

  12. Hi there! Your home is beautiful! Would you be able to post what the floor plan is? I’d love a better visualization of the flow. Thank you!!!

    1. Hey, Colleen, I wish I could. Due to an agreement with my architect, I’m unable to share the plans. If you go to my Instagram I have some video tours saved that will give you a better feel for the layout – thanks!

  13. I thoroughly enjoyed looking over the eye-candy that is your home; gorgeous!! I did get a chuckle, though, when I saw the kale/ornamental cabbage planted inside and thought that I’d share an anecdotal faux pas of mine. Years ago, after seeing numerous magazine pictures wherein designers had used kales and cabbages on Thanksgiving and even Christmas tables, I became inspired to try it myself. I toiled and sweated(ok, maybe, I didn’t sweat ;-), and, finally, had my own lovely, little masterpiece. How proud I was of myself!! I turned my attention to other tasks, but, as the night wore on, and I walked in and out of the dining room, I began to notice this….this….well, this SMELL!! ***Attn: Charlie(you’ll enjoy this part)*** Immediately, I looked over at my English Bulldog, Winston, with horror!! Winston looked back at me with corresponding horror and, then, in bulldogese, sd to me, “Don’t even think about blaming me for this one, Mom!! It’s those funny-looking, green creatures that you plopped on the dining room table!!’. Ugh….the cabbage!! I had just decorated my lovely dining room with odor-spewing cabbage!!! So, these days, all cabbage and kale is left to the great outdoors that is my front yard. I do wonder, though, when I see pics in magazines and blogs like yours, how you all get away with it without needing an industrial air filtration system???!! :-) Oh!!! Word of warning: You don’t want to hear my Bradford Pear bouquet story….ewwww :-(

    1. Oh ha, that’s funny! Our cabbage didn’t smell at all? I always buy it at a local nursery so I don’t know if its a certain kind? Hmmm…

  14. Love your home! We are thinking about building our retirement home soon. Could you share the name of your builder?

  15. Hi, Your home is lovely. Can you tell me about the wood floors? I’m particularly interested in the finish. It looks almost matte which is what I’m striving for, and the color is just right, not too light and not too dark. Thanks!

    1. Hey Katharine if you are on instagram check out my saved stories (lilypadcottage) I answer a ton of faq’s there and link to them too! They are from Build Direct, you can find the link for them on my FAQ page on my blog otherwise :)

  16. I searched to see if I could find this info before asking, BUT what color white did you choose for the wallas and ceiling? Thanks and sorry if I missed it:)

  17. Hi Kelly, Your home is beautiful. Do you Have a link to where I can purchase the sailboat art print hanging over the bed? Thanks!

  18. Hi there,
    Your kitchen island is stunning. Did you have it made or did you buy it? I’m looking to put in a new island and wondering which is easier.
    Thank you!

    1. Hey Amy we had it custom built. I would say that is the way to go if it’s in the budget. Then you can get exactly what you want for your space.

  19. Hi Kelly. I see that you mentioned that the sectional is Art Van Home. Do you know the name of the sectional? And is it super comfortable? It looks fabulous. Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Deann, it was actually in the basement of the old house we knocked down to build here. It was fun we were able to save the old beams :)

  20. I’m in love with your sunroom! Just found your blog and love your style. I have the same dining table and chairs. (World Market)

    1. It slate tile from Build Direct. If you search Lake House Flooring in the search bar on my site you will find direct links to all my flooring – thanks!

  21. Kelly, Shout out from over in Northeast Ohio. I’m waiting for the leaves to change in my backyard, too. Your home is so beautiful! I’ve been working over my home one room at a time. Your bright, airy, cottage style always gives me ideas for my own house!

  22. What a lovely and warm home you have ! I was wondering where you got your ceiling fan in the master…..that is exactly what I have been looking for ! Thank you !

  23. I love all the fall touches, without any orange and almost no pumpkins! Just perfect!

    I didn’t see a source for the plaid blanket on your dining room chair; could you tell me where that is from?

    I am in the process of redoing our lower level family room and while it doesn’t have your windows, I am using your color scheme and “feel” of your great room as my inspiration!

    1. It’s actually a blanket scarf ha! I looks cute on a chair or with jeans ;) I bought it at a local boutique. Good luck with your family room!

  24. Kelly! Thank you so much for sharing the H&M pillow sham find the other day. I live in such a tiny lake cottage that finding storage friendly decor is always a bonus. I’m so limited for space I’ve been known to keep shams inside of shams.
    I also love the combination of rust and navy. I think it’s a fall duo that is a twist on traditional and is very refreshing. The extra pillows and throws make the space feel so cozy and inviting. Your home has always felt like the embodiment of lake living and I love how welcoming your spaces feel! And to be completely honest, I LOVE the Charlie photobombs. Happy Fall!

  25. Always so lovely! The Fleur De Lis pillows perfectly highlight the wooden painting frame and the bed frame. Sweet!

  26. So beautiful, Kelly…as always! I love following your blog. I have blue and white in my home, too and didn’t want to decorate for Fall this year, but you have inspired me to do so! Happy Friday!

    1. Oh great! Sometimes it feels like a lot of a hassle to seasonally decorate but if you just add a few pillows and swap out flowers it can be fun!

  27. Enjoyed looking at all the touches of Fall in the bedroom; very subtle, along with the blue, white & brown.
    Love it!

  28. love your drop leaf table I have an Irish drop leg farmhouse table from the 20s Wondering if you refinished yours I love to be brave enough to refinish mine!!!

    1. Hey Sandi I actually bought it like this from an antique store. It’s actually in rough shape and one of the legs is broken but I love it anyway!

  29. Kelly, I love your home and your fall look! The candelabra was such a great find! Adding those flowering plants inside is such a cute idea. I used to do it, but haven’t in a while. You’ve inspired me to pick one up next time I’m out! Happy Fall and thanks for joining us for this! xoxo

  30. I really enjoyed all of the lovely homes on the blog tour but, hands down… you win! I could walk into your house and feel like I’m home! What I mean is, besides being gorgeous, your home is charming and welcoming like a bug hug and there is very little clutter. I wouldn’t even be nervous turning my husband loose in there, lol! I love your blues and whites and warm woods. SO lovely! I would feel perfectly welcome to snuggle up on that giant sofa with those smooshy (is that a word?) pillows with my feet up in front of the fire, or sit at your dining room table, facing the lake of course, and share stories over a glass of wine. Then, when it was time to leave, I’d kidnap Charlie and go home.

    1. The last comment about Charlie almost made me spit my coffee out ha!! Love it! Thanks so much for always being such an encouragement to me Dori. Really it means a lot. I’m constantly telling my kids they have the opportunity every day to fill someone’s bucket up or dump it out and you always lift me up! That doesn’t always happen online so thank you thank you. I hope you have a fantastic weekend.

  31. Kelly,
    I’m in love with your subtle Fall touches, especially those sunflowers and your fabulous window boxes! I know we aren’t supposed to covet, but those babies have me seeing green with envy! They are stunning! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! xo

  32. Kelly,

    Your home is beautiful as always! I was wondering where you got the copper pitcher that is sitting on the counter in your kitchen? I love copper, and I have a blue and white kitchen as well. Such a beautiful combination!!

  33. Did you line the baskets that you planted out with live plants? Can u write details on that process?

    1. Hey Nicole I actually bought them already lined from a local nursery! I don’t think it would be too hard to line some yourself though :) They just have a thick plastic tucked in them.

  34. Kelly…..could you please tell me where you bought the wall lamps in your bedroom? I just love them! Thanks
