Jessica Matos’ modern California farmhouse is so breathtakingly beautiful, it looks like it belongs in Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Journal. It is filled with magnificent details and favorite farmhouse staples like shiplap, exposed wood, open shelving, chalkboard signage and flowers in nearly every room.
A wife and busy mom of seven, Jessica has a passion for home decorating, photography and DIY projects. She has gained a following of more than 53,000 on her personal Instagram account “I Dream of Homemaking.”
Brought to you exclusively by Mohawk Home, here is a peek at Jessica’s fall-inspired dining room and a few quick tips for decorating your home this season.
Modern farmhouse with a touch of personality!
How to Create a Fall Tablescape:
My tip is to find some inspiration photos on Pinterest. Once you have an idea in mind, start collecting pieces and then put it all together! You can always take things away if you feel it becomes too overwhelming or add to it if it needs something more. Pinterest is my go-to place for inspiration, but I still enjoy looking through magazines, and of course, Instagram.
Budget-friendly tips for freshening up fall home decor:
I’m always up for a good DIY. The faux mantel in our dining room was made from old fence boards one of my neighbors was throwing away! I also recommend investing in a statement piece (like my Pumpkin Patch sign) and adding some realistic faux florals and greenery.
Favorite DIY home project:
My flower wall is my favorite DIY in the dining room. I hung empty IZZE [sparkling juice] bottles on the wall using twine and I love changing it up season to season. It always adds a happy pop of color!
Fall home decor essentials:
Faux pumpkins from the Target dollar spot! They are so cute and I love the colors.
