I’m excited to share the first room on this year’s fall home tour, my living room! This year I kept my overall neutral palette with pops of pale pastel and gold throughout. I also restyled my coffee table with some new pieces and overall simplified the shelf decor too. I always love how cozy the addition of fall decor makes a living space feel!Read More
The next space up on my fall home tour is my living room! I have been steering more towards all neutrals and pale pastels in this room lately so I decided to keep that feel for fall instead of adding my usual pops of orange and browns. I used lots of layered velvet and knit pillows on the couch in all different shades of cream. blush, and magenta mixed in with my favorite gold leaf pillows from Homegoods. I layered up the mantle a bit more than I usually do for fall by adding some eucalyptus garland and then piled up some neutral pumpkins on the threshold too. I always add lots of pumpkins to my built-in shelves, all white and metallic this year, and also added a few vases with simple fall stems.Read More
Today I’m sharing the next room up on my fall home tour, my kitchen! I love to decorate this space for any time of year because there’s so many different areas and elements to refresh: open shelving, fireplace, table settings, and more! I usually use a lot of bright colors in here normally but add an extra pop of orange in as well for fall. I love how it looks mixed with the greens, blues, and gold accents I usually have in this space. Some of my favorite elements of this room are the simplest decor items- like the blue vase on the kitchen table filled with a tall autumn leaf stem; or the fireplace filled with a combination of firewood, bright pumpkins and gourds, and modern brass candlesticks.Read More
I’m kicking off my fall home tour today starting with my autumn entryway! This is always one of my favorite areas of my home to decorate for the changing seasons. There are a few things I do every year as far as decor, like the pumpkins up the stairs and garland on the banister, but I also like to add a few new elements each year too. This year I decided to use this vintage floral painting as the inspiration for the space. I hung it off to the side instead of centered on the back wall and then added a hanging metal bin on the other side to balance it out. I filled the space with lots of different fall stems and greenery too, including the gorgeous fresh leaf wreath from Trader Joe’s that I hung on the mirror.Read More
September is here and it's time to decorate for the changing seasons!

You'll find ideas for decking out small porches, medium porches, and large porches as well, and many ideas that can work for porches of any size. Let me know which ideas you'll be trying and which porches are your favorite!Read More
Today is the official first day of fall so I'm sharing another space on my fall home tour, the living room. This is the space that we spend most of our time in so comfort and coziness is a top priority! The living room is always one of my favorite rooms to decorate because of all the built-in shelving around the fireplace which I love to re-style and add seasonal touches to. Overall most of my decor in here is a mix of thrifted or vintage and any newer items are mostly from Target or Homegoods. I've linked as much as I can below, but a lot of the items are older or one of a kind. If you are looking to duplicate a similar look in your own home, please check out this post to shop some of my favorite fall decor available currently in-stores at Target! As always if you have questions about anything not mentioned, just ask! Happy Fall!
I will just go ahead and warn you that my weekly favorites will most definitely consist of all things fall for the next month or so. This week my favorite finds include the dreamiest neutral fall mantle, a mouth-watering autumn panini, laid-back and chic fall outfit inspo, and the sweetest fall garland from Terrain. These finds are sure to put you in the autumn mood and I hope that they inspire you like they did me.
One of my favorite part of the new house is our giant front porch! Even though the old floor boards need a little work (hopefully will get to this next spring/summer), it is such a wonderful space to have and fun area to decorate! Right now we have one side set up with a small table and chairs and the other with a bench. We eventually want to definitely get a hanging porch swing for here. The center of the porch is where our front door is and there are a double set of stairs leading up to the porch from the circular driveway in front of our house.
We lucked out on finding this cute little IKEA dining set a garage sale and it's the perfect size for the porch. I created a simple centerpiece on the middle of the table with a few different colored pumpkins + wooden candlesticks. I also found the hanging gold planters at a garage sale and filled them with my favorite fall plants: cabbages + kale!
Near the front door I have some more pumpkins and old distressed baskets filled with ferns (also garage sale finds). This gold wreath on the front door is one of my favorite wreaths and I pretty much use it year round. I layered it on top of a dried fall floral wreath that I found while thrifting. Layering wreaths is my favorite way to create a one-of-a-kind statement piece for the front door.
Foddershocks have become one of my traditional decorations every year and I couldn't wait to decorate these columns with them! This year I found these giant ones just down the road at the Woodford Feed Co. and they go all the way from the ground to the roof!
Since this area is protected from the rain I was able to pile my bench full of pillows + a cute plaid blanket. The floral pillows are vintage barkcloth that I found at an estate sale, while the gingham + "Hello Fall" pillow were steals from the Target Dollar Spot. The wool blanket is also a vintage find and a perfect pop of color.
No southern porch is complete without some mums and I love the pop of color they add especially in these vintage brass planters. This little area by the door is probably my favorite little vignette on the porch. I used an old piece of barnwood to make this vertical sign a couple years back. It says "FALL" on one side and "JOY" on the other so I can use it for both fall and Christmas decorating. In front of it I used an old wooden trough to hold some pumpkins, gourds, plant, sticks, and dried hydrangeas. I also used a vintage basket beside it to hold a cluster of some more dried hydrangeas (I can't ever get enough!) and cornstalks.
Here you can see the full layout of the porch. Future plans include replacing all the floorboards with black reclaimed wood and hopefully replacing that lattice at the bottom of the porch with something more solid and finished looking (maybe some kind of stonework or solid wood). I'd also love to make some simple, real wood shutters like they use on Fixer Upper quite often. For now though I'm enjoying having this extra outdoor space and just one more area for me to decorate! While most of the items I used on this porch are thrifted or vintage, I've linked some similar options at the end of this post for you to shop.
