Finding Fall Home Tour – Fall Decorating Ideas


Welcome sweet friends to our home!  It is my favorite time of the year – fall!  I was married in the fall (coming up on our 20th anniversary – crazy!), we have a Halloween baby, and don’t we all just love the change in the air, the colors, the snuggling up?  And to top if off, it is time for our Finding Fall Home Tour.

I tend to get in nesting mode this time of year and look forward to friends and family gathering in our home.  I want to share all kinds of great decorating ideas with you today, but it is better than that.  This is day one of a full week of home tours of some of the most talented bloggers I know.  And, we will end the week being inspired by is also launching a really fun idea – 100 Days of Holiday Inspiration.  Who better to be inspired by all the way through the seasons that  Click HERE to sign up.

Now, lets get the fall home tour started!  Our dining room is set really simple and welcoming this year.


I simply ran a length of paper down the length of the table – quick and easy and the easiest clean up you can imagine.  No ironing, no washing – just remove it and put it in the recycling bin.




Fall meals are all about savory and rich and foods.  Why not bring your favorite herbs right to the table.  I simply planted some rosemary plants in mason jars and ran them now the center of the table.  I will share more details on the table next week.



Our vintage door plate wall is still the same, but I added a few fall details in front of it.




The best part?  We actually had Thanksgiving dinner at this table last week!  Yup, we never have the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with our friends who are visiting, so we decided to go ahead and celebrate in September.  Trust me, Thanksgiving dinner is yummy no matter what the month.




A more simplified approach to fall carried all the way through our home.  In our living room, I brought in just a few details.  Seriously, I love this room.  It is so peaceful and I can see all of nature out the windows so not much was needed.





On our coffee table, I assembled some of favorite items, old shoe forms with gorgeous writing on them, pine cones, vintage door knobs, locks and keys.  A quirkly little display that is so perfectly me.




One ceramic pumpkin was all our coffee table needed.




One of my vintage doorknob pumpkins made it to my updated side table along with some other textural details.




One of my favorite details to add to our home in the fall is hydrangea flowers.   I have continually added more plants over the years so I have plenty to pick when this time of year comes around.  I have added them in almost every corner.




I discovered dahlia flowers in this beautiful rich garnet color this year and fell in love with them.  I mixed them with hydrangea and put them in glass jars that I tucked into this old wooden box.




Our family room is where so much of our living really happens.  I added lots of fall touches, but kept things still in the blues, greens and browns because I love keeping fall decorating bright and cool.




I am always amazed what a simple change in throw pillows and blankets can do for this space.





For our mantel, our brought our DIY chalkboard back up and simply expressed the truest sentiment I feel at this time of year – thankful.  I was feeling very “farmhouse-y” and just added milk bottles and galvanized containers with hydrangea blooms.  I added two grapevine pumpkins and an antler and called it a simple fall mantel.





Adding little sentimental and vintage details will always be my style and our side table in the family room was no exception.






The hydrangea on our coffee table – that is one blossom head.  Not all of my bushes flowered this year, but the ones that did were giants!




I moved my vintage door table runner to the kitchen table and put my most favorite vintage box in all of land on top of it.  I filled it with pine cones and more herbs.








Our kitchen gallery wall is still the same, but I added some sunflowers to bring in some fall color.




A simple paper mache pumpkin was added on top of my DIY console table and more hydrangea were added to the kitchen.





And so there you have it!  My fall home tour!  Thank you so much for coming by – but get ready to be inspired even more!  Here are the links for today:

  1. Good morning, Laura! Your pictures are beautiful! I have a question about your kitchen? Are the countertops Carrera marble? If not, what are they? We are working with a kitchen planner who is discouraging us from using Carrera, but I want that look you have. Thanks!

  2. Good morning! I love your pictures! One question about your kitchen: Are the countertops Carrera? We are working with a kitchen planner who is discouraging us from Carrera, but that’s the look I want. Suggestions? Thanks.

    How long will your rosemary last indoors? Inside, mine always get the white mites. How do you avoid this?
