Early Fall Home Tour

Hello and welcome to our fall home tour! I'm a summer lover, but I have equal affection towards all things fall. A huge thank you to Marty from A Stroll Thru Life for including me and a wonderful group of bloggers in this home tour series. I hope you were able to visit all homes from Monday's tour (see end of post for links) and continue to check out all 6 posts for each day this week. I'm glad you're here!

You'll see that I'm not drawn to typical fall colors/decorations. I don't have a "fall" bin of items that I pull out. I like to pull together texture, colors, candles, plants, cut stems, and all things cozy for fall. I hope you find simple inspiration in our home! Most of all, I love our house to feel lived in and comfortable!

Our dining room is the first room you see upon entering the front door. I recently painted this room Simply White and love the classic update. I also used to have striped black/white curtains that I changed out with some DIY abstract art. The changes feel fresh and modern and bright. 

This vintage bar cart is one of my favorite things in our home. It's fun to change up for the seasons. Wood textures and cut stems from plants around my house make it feel warm.

I was recently inspired by another blogger to make this faux succulent terrarium. The colors lend themselves to fall and it's the perfect centerpiece for our dining room. I love the look of the wood/glass off of the black tabletop.

Our living room is pretty neutral. I changed out blush pillows for wine colored pillows. I love how they look against the ink blue chairs. I also just added this macrame wall hanging. The texture is perfect against the cool paint on the walls. Woven baskets and readily available blankets are a must!
I also changed up our craigslist coffee table just a bit. Eucalyptus is so simple and adds a touch of fall whimsy.
I decided to leave the navy pillows on our sofa. This shibori pillow is a new purchase and I just LOVE it! My family calls it the jeans pillow  - they just don't appreciate home decor like mom does! Ha!
I found this textured vase at a thrift store several years ago an it's perfect for fall! I cut some bush stems from my yard that are just starting to turn color! I love summer/fall because I can cut so many things and bring them inside!
And this little sitting nook gets used the most! It's right by a bank of windows and super cozy. This faux leather pillow really grounds this chair so I leave it here all year long. The kilim pillow provides perfect texture and added color to the space!

Our master is also very neutral. I added a wine colored pillow to the blush pillows on the bed. The bedside tables also get cut stems from the yard. This pretty sedum lasts forever in water! And when in doubt, throw a faux fur on it! I have these things everywhere and I LOVE them! 

I have been making chalkboard "bucket lists" for 5 years now! It's the number one thing kids and adults comment on when they come to our home. It's such a fun and easy way to add some color and meaning to a mudroom. 
And you can't live in the Sunflower State (Kansas) without having some sunflowers in your home! My family recently went to a sunflower farm and we cut these stems (this is allowed and we left a donation)! Paired with eucalyptus, these scream fall! Love them as a table centerpiece!
I'm not a pumpkin spice crazy person (I know there are a lot out there!), but I do love the smell of a pumpkin candle burning. I also love roses. These orange-ish pink ones are my idea of fall! 

I'm going to do a full fall porch post, but here is one photo that I took right after grabbing some HUGE mums. Fall mums and summer hydrangeas collide in September!
I think that was a lot of photos! Sorry for the overload! I'm so happy you stopped by my fall home tour and hope you found something that inspired you. Here's to crisp mornings, bonfires, cider donuts, football, sweatshirts and jeans!

  10. Andrea, thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. it's a great example of how you can incorporate natural elements to usher in the fall season....and can leave those bins in the attic.
