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
I was more excited than usual to decorate our front porch this year because we just completed a much overdue renovation of the porch which now has all new supports, stairs, and lumber all around. We have not gotten to stain the wood yet, but who knows when we’ll have time to do that, so I just went ahead and started decking it out for fall! This is a project we had on our list since moving in, as many of the boards had major cracking or holes in them, but somehow or another it always got pushed to the side. Now it’s as good as new and completely structurally sound as well.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
Happy fall y'all! I'm so excited to share some more of my fall decor and today I'll be showing you my kitchen. I always enjoy adding some fall touches to our open shelving wall in here and some garland and wreaths to our corner fireplace. I try to reserve all my brightest fall decor for this space, since I have a lot of vintage kitchenware that tends to come in bright, kitschy colors. Pops of turquoise, orange, and yellow are mixed with lots of black and white as well as brass and gold touches. I always like to have fresh flowers in the kitchen too and Trader Joe's always has the best fall flowers every year. Some of my other vases, pitchers, and jars throughout the room are filled with wheat or faux leaf stems. I love the simple and natural feel of those arrangements and how much warmth they add to the space. As always most all my decor is thrifted, or a mix of Homegoods and Target. You can find more details on all our kitchen fixtures and renovation here. I've also linked a lot of those items, as well as similar fall decor for you to shop below! If you have any questions about anything not mentioned- feel free to ask!
If you follow my Instagram stories at all, you know that I have been not-so-patiently stalking Target for their new fall home decor collection for the past couple of weeks. This year the Threshold fall decor collection drop coincided with another launch of Target's new home decor brand, Project 62. Both were released this week online and in-stores and as usual, Target did not disappoint. I found so many great pieces to add to my seasonal decor and many of them are also perfect for year-round use as well. Take a look at some of my favorite picks below (just click on any photo to shop!).
As soon as September hits (and let's be honest a few weeks before too) I'm ready to deck my house out with all things cozy + autumn themed! It's my favorite time of year kicking off what feels like a marathon of seasonal decorating. The holidays give me an excuse to freshen up each room with some new decor and rearrange a bit too. I love the refreshed and super cozy feeling it brings to my home each year. Most of my decor is a collection of vintage or thrifted items that I have gathered over the years. Sometimes I leave thrifted/vintage items as-is and sometimes I alter them slightly with a little DIY or upcycling. You can easily DIY some of my fall decor items like my vintage "gather" fall landscape painting (tutorial here), or my gold leaf garland (tutorial here). I also like shopping for new decor at stores like Home Goods, Target, At Home, and Hobby Lobby. I find that my favorite decor pieces each year are unexpected things that are more natural and simple fall items like pinecones, acorns, leaves, and wheat. Something as simple as a glass vase or vintage bottle filled with a few pieces of wheat or a dried branch can turn into the most stunning fall display. I've linked up all my decor pieces above + below, as well as a list of my favorite fall decor picks now in-stores for you to shop! Enjoy!

I'm so excited to debut this year's Autumn lookbook! Sarah and I have been working so hard on this project for the past couple of months and wanted to create something completely different from last year's lookbook, expanding this idea into a complete fall style guide. This year's lookbook highlights my latest project, our fixer upper renovation, and gives a behind-the-scenes look into our new home. My ultimate vision for Miss Molly Vintage is so much more than just a shop, but a brand that encompasses all the things I love including decorating, cooking, and entertaining. These are all things I am passionate about and one way that I can inspire others to use vintage items throughout their home, creating spaces that are unique, comfortable, and personalized.
This entire season, I just want to soak up every bit of fall goodness there is: from cooking and baking, to cozy layers and knits, to decorating the house. Hopefully this lookbook can inspire your autumn style by showing you how I use and wear my favorite fall items! Each item featured is linked below the photos for easy shopping but you can also find them in our regular online shop (head there if you want to see more photos or details of any item). Be sure to check out our main lookbook page for a full size page by page view of the entire lookbook. Thanks again to Sarah Dunn for her amazing work on the entire lookbook, from all the photography to design and layout- she made my vision come to life and once again knocked this project out of the park! Below is Part 1 of our lookbook which is a mini home tour of our fixer upper- stay tuned for Part 2 tomorrow which focuses more on fall entertaining!
Every Kentucky southern belle needs a Kentucky cookie cutter- perfect for cutting cookies, sandwiches, biscuits, and more (plus they make a great hostess or housewarming gift)!

Our kitchen is the center of our home and where we spend most of our time, so I wanted to be sure the fall decor didn't make it feel cluttered and fit in seamlessly with the style of the space. I added a few wreaths, some garland, and plenty of pumpkins and gourds throughout the space to give it a natural, rustic fall feel. These touches blended perfectly with the industrial farmhouse style of our kitchen while also adding perfect pops of color and texture. Above you can see our fireplace area which features one of my favorite thrifted wreaths, a $5 yard sale find that is super unique and the perfect statement piece for above the fireplace. I also added a couple of layered fall garlands from Target and filled the fireplace with pumpkins and vintage candlesticks (temporarily until we get out fireplaces checked out, sweeped, and ready for winter fires!).
Pumpkins + gourds: Lexington Farmer's Market | Burlap pumpkins: Target | Vintage fall paint-by-number: thrifted (similar here + here)
On our open-shelving wall I simply added some fall touches: pumpkins, gourds, amber and turquoise jars, and a fall paint-by-number at the bottom. The dishes and serving ware that we usually display on this shelf are pretty neutral so I can add just about any pops of color easily.
I updated our giant chalkboard with a fall quote too! I always find chalkboard quote ideas and font inspiration on Pinterest.

I always keep this basket in the center of the island to hold produce, snacks, and this giant jar of fresh flowers. It's the perfect centerpiece and kind of anchors the entire kitchen.

I'm slowly adding more wall art, like these vintage brass plates by the fridge, and finishing out the overall decor of the kitchen. I've also added curtains on all the windows and the multi-colored rug by the sink. I still have a few small projects in here but it finally feels more complete and "lived-in." Looking back on my last kitchen post from a few months ago, it's amazing how much it has already evolved! I love the coziness and warmth all the fall decor adds and will be just as excited to transform it again for Christmas in a month or so! I've linked all my fall decor throughout this post and at the bottom of the post too for easy shopping. If you are looking for information on fixtures or renovation details, you can find all of those here. As always, if you have questions about something not mentioned, just ask!
