Happy Fall!! The air is cooler and I've been dreaming of apple cider and falling leaves. It's still warm here in Oklahoma, but the inside of my house is getting ready for Fall! Ariean from One Kreiger Chick and Nina from Everyday Enchanting invited me to join in the Fall Home Tour... I was so honored and excited to join in with so many other amazing bloggers. Make sure that you check out the other ladies tours for more awesome Fall ideas.
.... and on to the tour
We moved into our house in February of this year and we are still figuring out where to put things and finding the style for this house. I have a pretty simple style typically and so I wanted to go with something a little different than the normal pumpkin style of Fall decorating this year. I worked off of the colors already in the house and went from there.
I started on the front porch. I have to give a disclaimer... our front doors are a mess. A stain job gone bad that the painter made worse by a re-do job, so now we are waiting for the painter to completely strip and stain the doors again.... so till then, we have rustic/not so great looking doors.
I made two cute stacked frames and added grateful and thankful. I then hung them from the doors with thick burlap ribbon.
I found the cutest pumpkin at Home Goods, perfect for Halloween. Our corn crops didn't do so well this year... but they sure do look cute on the porch.
now inside to the entry/dining room.
I love using my vintage mason jars and electric line glass pieces. I already have a yellow and blue color scheme going on in the entry, so I decided to use the same colors for my fall decorating. I love these fake stems that I found at hobby lobby. I cut them into individual pieces and placed them in my blue mason jars. I layered a burlap runner with a cotton runner from West Elm and then added in some of my gray dishes
The living room. I changed up the pillows to go with the blue, gray, yellow and burlap look from the dining room.
I added some decorations to my bare fireplace. The pumpkin bit the dust earlier today, as my one year old quickly knocked it to the ground! But I got a picture first, so all is ok.
I made a small vignette on the coffee table with some of my favorite books, another mason jar of stems and the best smelling jasmine candle.
I love this print that I made. It is a great reminder for me that it doesn't have to be perfect. The journey is more important. You can head over HERE to download your own print.
... and the star of the house who just can't stay out of the photos.
The breakfast nook area. I absolutely love this light and everything about this little area.
The mud room. I added a couple of pillows and a fabric bunting to mom's chalkboard. I can't lie, that saying has been on the chalkboard since Valentine's Day... maybe I will get it changed before next February!!
This mudroom is my favorite thing in the house and we use it daily. It typically looks a lot crazier than this though.
One hallway of photos. I only took a photo of this hallway, because the other hallway has empty frames... one day I will get it all done! I added another cute fabric bunting to fall up the photos.
Have a wonderful Fall and enjoy the cooler temperatures and a cup of apple cider.
