Today, I am thrilled to invite you into my home for the first part of my Fall Home Tour. Next week, I’ll be sharing my fall living room refresh as well as a few more snippets around the house. But fear not, I’ve got loads of inspiration here and you are also invited inside the homes of the talented bloggers listed at the end of the post! Be sure not to miss more fall inspiration.
So, come on in! We will start at the front door.
I wanted to keep it fairly simple this season and didn’t try to force a theme. The only goal I set was to incorporate just a little more orange than I had in the previous years.
If you’ve been following along with the blog recently, then surely you will remember my deconstructed wreath. The tutorial can be found in this recent post.
I had intended to take you into the library, but I’ll include that in the post next week. Subscribe to my email to never miss a post.
the dining room
I love the look of a fresh, fall arrangement with pumpkins, ferns, moss small pinecones and lotus pods. I created a similar look in here last year and loved it. You can see last year’s fall home tour, here.
I shared on Instagram the complete and utter fail that was my attempt to add orange to this room. I’m not kidding when I say it looked like a circus!

The wooden trough planter box was moved in here to make room for a fall floral arrangement in the kitchen. This is the easiest DIY project to build and it is even easier to arrange. I honestly believe everyone can and should have one of these in their home. The DIY Trough tutorial post can be found here.
Fall in the Kitchen
I don’t always create flower arrangements just for a home tour, but it happened to coincide with a meeting/luncheon I was hosting at our home. So I decided to splurge a little. And when I say splurge, I mostly mean I made a special trip out to Trader Joe’s to buy inexpensive flowers.
Shop the look
The copper pieces I have been collecting over the last few years look especially fall-ish when a pumpkin or two are thrown next to them.
I was inspired to try something new on the open shelves this fall after I picked up a piece of vintage art from a thrift store. It’s the bridge scene on on the top shelf. I’ll share more about the second piece of art another time.

I had a few extra flowers left over from the arrangement created for the island so I tucked a few stems into this teal vase.
Nothing fancy on the kitchen table today. Staged table scapes typically aren’t my thing. I’m just a bit too practical for that. For a real holiday, though, like Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve dinner I’m all in! Check out last year’s grocery store table setting here.
A quick look into the living room
I look forward to sharing the recent updates in the living room next week! This is a photo I took last week for the Wood Bead Garland Tutorial post.
The living room is one room I have taken the slow approach and have let it evolve. I love a collected style and budget of course plays a big factor. As I am able, I try to move closer to the vision I have for the room. And that is okay. Be sure to get this point. Unless you have an unlimited decorating budget, which I don’t, some rooms are going to be just okay for a bit. But I would be lying if I didn’t say that it makes me extremely happy to move closer to what I had hoped for in this room.
I inadvertently made this fall the year of the fall mantle. This is my fifth iteration of a fall mantle! You can see the others in the blog post, “4 Ways to style a Simple Fall Mantle with a Round Mirror.” I even rounded up great resources for round mirrors.

Today I’m excited to be joining a group of over 35 talented bloggers who are also touring through part of their home ready for fall. Hop around to take in all this stunning inspiration…
