I’m teaming up with a bunch of my favorite bloggers and Good House Keeping to share 15 amazing fall home tours and inspiration!
All the fun starts with Kelly over at Eclectically Vintage so be sure to start over there so you don’t miss a post!
And a special welcome to you if you are stopping by from Bre’s gorgeous home over at Rooms For Rent.
Ok I’m not gonna lie…this year I’m SO not ready for fall! All you boot loving, pumpkin spice everything people don’t hate. I’m still team #flipflops4life over here. This reluctance to switch seasons may directly correlate to the fact that fall means it time to take the boats and docks out of the water. So, really I’m team #stayoutofthefreezingwater either way I’m in denial.
But since this is bloggy land and the first week of September is the official kick off to frantically hunting for pumpkins or mums or anything fallish, I got my booty in gear and I’m ready to open my doors for this year’s fall home tour…even though I may still be wearing flip flops in my heart.
First up, we’ll hit the living room and my fall mantel. I kept it pretty simple this year for fall decorating, mainly added a few cute pumpkins and fun fall pretties from a nursery. I won’t tell you how far I had to drive for these few tiny pumpkins, but the important thing is I found them!
I picked up the cute plaid blanket at the flea market last week and borrowed my little “You are my sunshine” pillow from our master bedroom.
Don’t mind my fancy state of the art “paper bag planter” soon to be all the rage. You may not be on board with this one, but the lady at the nursery stuck my flowers in these cute paper bags and I brought them home and just kind of loved them like that! The Mr. would like to point out that I loved them so much I forgot to water them and killed one, whoops…I loved it to death I guess? ;)
My old tobacco basket is taking a spin on the mantel for the season along with some mums and a few orange pansies…planted in our copper moscow mule cups, so we’ll just be sipping wine thru the fall instead.
The copper cups made an appearance in the kitchen this year too…
My new wood hood is feeling right at home amongst all the fall colors.
In lieu of actually cooking, I decided to plant my little vintage colanders with succulents for a little pop of green in here.
A few more mums brighten up our front entry.
More sunflowers make my red painted buffet a happy place (or they did, these are the ones that kicked the bucket).
My flag is still proudly displayed in the dining room here and I replaced the herbs in the planter box with kale and cabbages for a pop of green (and because I killed all my herbs, sensing a theme here?)
Finally, I’ll show you my favorite spot in the sunroom (come actual fall that is, instead of crazy early blogger fall).
Once the gorgeous Michigan leaves start changing, this is the best spot in the house to take them in along with a good book… and ok fine, I give… a pumpkin spice latte too!
