Monday Must-Haves: Beautiful Modern Farmhouse Fall Kitchen Decor Finds

It has taken me years to realize this, but when it comes to home decor, I do not like to have a lot of color. I can’t quite pinpoint the reason, but I think it has something to do with being over-stimulated by all the colors or with tiring of colors too quickly.

And since I have been home A LOT during the pandemic, I’ve been able to really hone in on what I like and situate my living space accordingly.

While I love my kitchen, it was in dire need of a refresh! I did away with colorful accents and brought in neutrals. And I added lots of Rae Dunn-inspired kitchen must-haves!

These farmhouse decor finds are perfect for fall, but they also suit any season! That is what is great about neutrals!

Farmhouse Olive Oil Cruet

For years, I have a suffered looking at the olive oil container on my counter. Ha! That and the Pam cans drive me nuts! (If you have a solution for the Pam spray, other than putting it away in the pantry, please, please let me know!)

I finally had the time to search for a chic olive oil dispenser, and I am totally in love with this Rae Dunn-inspired cruet from Etsy! Not only is it cute, but it allows me to dispense the olive oil perfectly!!

Rae Dunn-Inspired salt & pepper shakers + Farmhouse-style napkin holder

In trying to my kitchen decor minimal and fluid, I chose these Rae Dunn-inspired salt and pepper shakers! Although I do not store them near my olive oil cruet, I like that they connect both my cooking and dining areas of the kitchen.

I set the shakers atop a wooden lazy Susan on our breakfast table, along with a farmhouse-style napkin holder.

White Ceramic Vase with White Faux Cherry Stems

I have had COUNTLESS vases, bowls, decorations… You name it. In this exact spot by the sink. And I tired of them all within days! This white vase and white cherry stems combo (both from Amazon!) is going strong! I don’t have plans to switch it up any time soon, but maybe I will at Christmastime? What do you think?

Mason Jar Soap Dispensers

Similar to the situation with my island vase and stems, I have had so many different soap dispensers at my sink that I absolutely hated!

They were either too hard to pump, not cute, too slippery, etc. These farmhouse mason jar soap dispensers sit pretty on a cute little stand (You can opt to include the stand with your purchase!), and of course they fit in with the theme I’ve created in the kitchen.

They are the BEST soap dispensers I have ever had. Aside from their charm, they are also extremely functional. I am able to pump the proper amount of soap with little effort and without slipping. And that little stand is super sturdy! 6 out of 5 stars for me!!

And last, but not least, I have added this adorable tiered tray with fall decor! While I technically placed it on a writing desk just outside my kitchen, I had originally planned on placing it on my side counter beneath my wine glasses.

You know what is AMAZING about this tray? I purchased almost all of the fall decor on it as one whole bundle! How easy does that make decorating for the seasons?! I didn’t even know this type of thing had existed, did you?! I cannot wait to purchase some wintry decor to place on the tray (which is sold separately- found that on Amazon) once December hits!
