Welcome to my very first fall home tour! I am so glad you have decided to join me. I have joined up with 11 other talented bloggers to bring you the Festive Fall Home Tours 2016. Don’t forget to check out all the other gorgeous homes linked at the bottom of this post.
I noticed this year that the trend seems to be white pumpkins and neutral farm decor. I love the way it looks, but I tend to be a very traditional girl and went with traditional colors…with a touch of my favorite color turquoise in my porch decor.
I didn’t want to spend much on my decor so some of it is handmade, hand me down, thrifted, or repurposed. I wanted to prove to myself that beautiful decor doesn’t have to cost hundred of dollars. I tend to keep things very simple and don’t like a lot of fluff, mostly because I hate clutter.
Enjoy the tour!!
To start this fall home tour I thought I would begin at the front door and “walk” you through my house as if you were a guest coming over for Thanksgiving dinner. I had people tell me I was crazy for picking a bright color for my door when we painted it last year, but I have had so many compliments and I LOVE it!
I originally thought I would paint this chair to be a more fall friendly color, but after recovering the seat in a Thanksgiving print, I decided to leave it teal to contrast with the orange. I think the two colors work really well together.
I got this old crate from a friend when I was going through stuff at her warehouse. I actually ended up with 2. They were exactly what I was looking for. I had a small scrap of fabric left from the chair which I used to add a little more color to the crate.
Again my favorite blue chair makes it into a photo. I seem to use it a lot if you haven’t noticed. I spent very little money dressing up this chair for fall . The pinecone were free, I reused an old candle holder, had flowers given to me and bought the sign with a coupon.
Welcome to my home. Please come inside and make yourself at home.
As you walk into my home you immediately enter the upstairs living room. I found the green throw pillows in a pile of stuff a neighbor had at their curb with a free sign. You can’t get any cheaper then FREE. I tossed them in the wash and they came out good as new!
I really struggled to get a good shot of my upstairs fireplace. So I am just going to give you pieces of it. The twigs in the metal can were of course another free item and the rest was reused from other decor I had in my home. The wreath I bought last year. You should have seen it with my teal door!
My very talented husband made me that incredible blanket ladder for mother’s day this year. I really feel it adds a cozy feeling to the room.
After talking and waiting for dinner to cook I would usher you into my dining room where the table is set with my new dishes I saved back from garage sale donations from my mother-in-law. I kept the table decor super simple and reused things I have around the house. The napkins were given to me at Thanksgiving in 2007 and I tied them together with twine and added a fresh zinnia from my garden.
After dinner I would take you downstairs to relax in front of a roaring fire. I have to say I am not proud of this photo, but I just got my new Canon Rebel this week and have not had a chance to play with it too much and or course my other camera started acting up forcing me to learn quickly.
This is a fun project I made last year. This is so cheap and easy to make.
I hope you enjoyed your tour of my home. Please come back and visit Claire and Rose often. Don’t forget to check out all the others homes in this tour! There is so much inspiration for your fall home decor.
