Fall at The Farmhouse

A couple weeks back, Tom and I made our (first ever!) day trip down to the Catskills and had a chance to visit and brunch with Shawn and Kris of The Farmhouse Project.  It was so much fun to tour their beautiful 1800 farmhouse that we’ve seen so many gorgeous photos of on Instagram. They’ve done such an amazing job restoring and decorating, and it was inspiring to see how they added fall touches throughout their home without it being too overwhelming.  Read on for five quick tips to incorporate fall into your home that I've picked up from my friends at The Farmhouse Project!

Keep it simple.  "Less is more and simple is beautiful."  We loved the monochromatic look of these little white pumpkins amongst the white ironstone.

These neutral pumpkins blend seamlessly into the decor of their cozy living / dining room.

Never ever too many mums. And the more colors, the better.

Bring the outside in.  Whether snipped from their own yard or from the cutting garden down the road, the Farmhouse was filled with fresh flowers and colorful branches.

Embrace the outdoors.  From the rocking chairs on the front porch, to the dining table on the patio, out to the fire pit surrounded by Adirondack chairs - each area was so inviting and festive - it made me want to cozy up with a good book, a cup of hot chocolate, and a throw blanket.

Serve up the season.  Shawn and Kris whipped up this delicious signature cocktail during our visit and it was perfect for the crisp fall afternoon.  Here's the recipe:

- 2 oz. good bourbon
- 3 oz. local apple cider
- 1/2 oz. rosemary simple syrup
- Shake to combine and garnish with a fresh sprig of rosemary (makes 1 cocktail)

The boys also make a mean cheeseboard (those figs!) - check out their tips on putting together the perfect spread here.
