Here in Central Pennsylvania, the days are beginning to get shorter, crisper, and clearer. Fall is definitely in the air and mums and pumpkins have made their way into every grocery store and market. I love this time of year, and I’m so glad you are here to see my fall home tour! Today I am honored to be joining the Finding Fall Home Tour hosted by Laura from Finding Home Farms and Better Homes & Gardens. You can begin your tour at BHG and visit all of the homes on the tour.
If you are joining me from Four Generations One Roof, welcome!
Our family of four lives in a modest 2500 square foot city row-home that we completely gutted and renovated 8 years ago. Our home is tall and skinny with an open concept floor plan on the main level. When you enter our home, you are immediately
attacked greeted by our two Pomeranians. This is Eowyn and she has decided that the sheepskin rug is her new dog bed! Don’t try to convince her otherwise. She and Pippin have also collectively decided that munching on cotton branches is a super fun past-time when no one is looking. Gah! They are so lucky they are cute. 😉
This small but mighty space is a joy to decorate for the holidays. Who wants actual mud in their mudroom when you can have buckets of pine cones and garlands of cotton instead? In all seriousness, this space only gets to look like this a few times a year, and I enjoy every minute of it! This year, I switched things up by moving some furniture around to make more room for coat-and-boot season. I’ll have a tutorial for the bench soon and a giveaway tomorrow from Kirkland’s–which is where those cute window panes are from. Consider subscribing to my weekly newsletter so you don’t miss out on upcoming posts!
I love decorating with neutrals and natural elements for fall, don’t you? All of the various textures play so nicely together and are so warm and inviting! Pass a cup of hot chocolate because I’m ready for bonfires and football games.
Baby boo pumpkins are my fall decorating must-have. Unfortunately, I could not find them anywhere! All I could locate were Jack-Be-Littles which are orange. So what’s a Baby Boo loving girl to do? Paint the orange ones white of course! I painted nearly all of the real pumpkins you see in this post.
The Chipmunk Pillow is just the cutest. It makes me smile every time I walk in the door. I found him on Amazon (affiliate link) at Society6. The boys have named him Chubs and he’s kind of become our fall mascot!
Next to the dining room and doorway is the bar cart. You can walk through the door and grab a drink immediately if you’ve had a rough day! I made a cute free autumn printable for above my bar cart with a quippy quote. Click on the link and download yourself a copy if you’d like!
A garland of acorns, white pumpkins, and a bouquet of limelight hydrangeas & roses is the perfect compliment to a fall cocktail.
Fall Dining Room
Our dining room has an expansive wall of 100-yr-old brick which adds a lot of charm and character to the space. I kept things classic and simple in here this year with just some hydrangeas from the yard displayed individually in bud vases. When my office is a mess, I will often sit at this table to work. It’s a soothing space which gets a lot of natural light.
Fall Family Room
The colors on my main level are done in creams, grays, and blues. I wasn’t interested in completely changing, or trying to fight my existing color scheme this year–so I just surrendered to it. So freeing! (Last year, I switched out all of my curtains, pillows, and even a few rugs. It just was not happening this year!) I ordered these adorable watercolor toss pillow covers designed by Lucy of Craftberry Bush and love how well they complement my home.
Blue Cinderella pumpkins are so gorgeous! I could only find sickly peach-colored ones this early in the season, so I painted and glazed them to my liking.
My summer mantel was so pretty and I just wasn’t quite ready to pack away all of my blue bottles. I wanted to create an early fall look that I can change in another month or so when I tire of it.
I found a great inspiration picture (which I later found out belongs to Craftberry Bush-dang that girl is good!) and created a pretty fall mantelscape with succulents, driftwood, and baby boos.
I found that little chair at a thrift store years ago. It used to have a scary-looking teddy bear glued to the seat. I’d say it looks much better with a little pumpkin!
Heading into the kitchen you pass my favorite wall in the house! You can see more on how I created the custom herringbone doors here and how I created my inexpensive engineer prints here. This wall is bold, but it’s so personal and meaningful to me which is what your house should be. I just love it!
The kitchen received a fun new DIY Coffee & Tea sign this week–sign tutorial coming soon! This is my favorite room in the house probably because it is the most tidy and clean! I can’t guarantee that the rest of the house won’t be a mess when you come to visit, but the kitchen is usually in good shape. I recently shared with you my secrets on how I keep it so clean if you’re interested.
Thank you so much for stopping by to see my fall home tour! I hope you enjoyed it and maybe picked up some inspiration for your own non-traditional fall decorating.
Do you follow me on Instagram? You can find me @homestoriesatoz. I will be showing many more pictures from my fall tour exclusively on IG and would love to have follow along! I will also be featuring some fall inspiration from others. You can share pictures of your fall decorating on Instagram and use the hashtags: #BHGCelebrate for a chance to be featured on BHG’s Instagram and #findingfallhometour for a chance to be featured by me or one of the other bloggers participating in the fall tour.
Your next stop on the tour will be at the gorgeous home of Courtney from the French Country Cottage! Enjoy!
