UncategorizedModern and Fresh Fall Home Tour October 1, 2013 Well, the big day has finally arrived! After lots of planning, dreaming, and coordinating, our fall home tour series has begun! Kristen and I are so excited to be kicking off this series with our own homes today. So, grab yourself a nice cup of coffee…a big one. We’ve got a lot of photos to get through. Sprinkle a little cinnamon in it, maybe a little vanilla (my new at home fall coffee tradition), and sit back for some fall goodness. Welcome to my home! One of my very favorite parts starts at the door. I wanted something different and I’m loving the antlers and feathers. I asked my husband what he thought about it. He said, “We have horns and feathers on our door.” That was it. Y’all appreciate it, though, right? In all fairness, he did tell me later that it was cool. Now, come on inside! Don’t you feel that fall chill in the air? Come right on into our lounge (pretend there’s a blazing fire in that fireplace that will one day be opened up). The lounge got some new digs for fall. I added a fur pillow, a cozy knitted pillow, and of course, the stump tables! I had been picturing two stumps at different heights and finishes serving as the coffee table in here. They do not disappoint….and the green heirloom pumpkin? One of my favorite things about fall. The mantle got some new styling around the antlers. I used lots of pheasant feathers and some small pumpkins as my main pieces. Feathers are my favorite thing to decorate with for fall! And even the plant stand got some fall love. Now, on into the living room. Lots more to see! We’re really starting to brighten up this room and it’s quickly going from my least favorite to one of the top. The new rug and coffee table are doing a lot to help with that. I’ll post more details on them later! I love the contrast and texture that this room is starting to have. I’m still not sure the big, dark chair is staying, but for now, it’s a cozy place! Of course, this room needed a few pumpkins too. And an extra throw or two. Now what fall home tour would be complete without a place to gather and enjoy a meal with friends? I did a little fall styling in the kitchen. I’ve got to feel the fall love while I’m cooking! And last, but definitely not least, my favorite space. We’re ready for an outdoor dinner party with the bulb lights shining bright overhead. Followed by some time lounging by a nice fire and of course, some s’mores. Well, there you have it, friends. I’m so glad you could “virtually” stop by my fall home. Now, go and check out Kristen’s lovely space today. I know she has some amazingness up her sleeve! And don’t forget about the next 30 days of home tours!
