Fall Home Tour Part 1 – Entryway & Living Room

I couldn’t wait to decorate my house for fall.  It’s my favorite season and it seriously can never get here fast enough.  So, when I was asked to participate in “An Autumn Welcome” fall home tour series with some of my favorite bloggers, I jumped at the chance!


This year, I started decorating in the entryway.  I wasn’t really planning on decorating the entryway this way, it kind of just progressed over time.  That really is my favorite way to decorate.  Even though I tend to want everything to look perfect right now, it feels more meaningful when it comes together over time.

I love the richness of the golds, oranges, and reds that fall brings.  It’s just so cozy and warm.  But since I had the blue striped mirror there already and didn’t want to switch it out, I brought in this gorgeous graniteware enamel coffee pot from my husband’s grandma.  I love how it ties in the blue and really stands out against the warm tones.  I never would have thought to use blue in a fall display, but I really like it!

The bunting is something I made last year.  I don’t know that I ever did anything with it then, but when I pulled it out of my stash a couple weeks ago, I was really excited to use it!  It’s so simple, but it just makes me smile every time I walk past it!

And that blanket.  Super cozy!  I picked it up at Target while I was browsing there the other day.  You always know it’s going to end badly when you go to Target to “browse”, right?!  I had kind of been keeping my eyes open for a plaid blanket, but when I saw this one, I totally forgot about that!  It’s just that perfect rich, orange color.  Plus it’s soft and warm.  I just love it.  I don’t usually buy a lot of seasonal things – especially larger items like this – but I just couldn’t resist.  I convinced myself that I could totally use it year round!  We’ll see if that happens!

I really like to do vignettes like the entryway, but when it comes to the rest of the house, I don’t decorate a whole lot.  So, I finished the living room area with my favorite pillow and plaid blanket.  (See.  I already had a plaid blanket.  Why did I think I needed another one?!)

You can see how I embroidered the leaf pillow cover here.  It took me forever, but it’s seriously one of my favorite projects.  It’s fall-ish without being totally over-the-top.  Just right.

And it will probably end up downstairs in our new bonus room because, let’s face it, it’s white and my kids and pets see white from a mile away and make it a point to get it dirty as quickly as possible!  So, it will hide in the basement for now.

PS – I do really love my kids (and sometimes my pets!), but there are days when I wish things would stay in their place and not get dirty for more than 2 minutes!  Oh well!  I wouldn’t give them up for the world!

    Wow, your photography is stunning, and that entryway vignette is so lovely – like something out of a magazine! It makes me want to pull on a pair of boots and go stomping through some crunchy leaves. :) What a gorgeous glimpse of your home! Thank you for sharing!
