Fall Home Tour 2016

Hi everyone!  I have teamed up once again with the fabulous Marty at A Stroll Thru Life and many other talented bloggers to show you our fall homes.  There is so much talent and so many different design styles, these tours are chock full of inspiration. I have to admit that I don’t decorate our home a ton for fall.  I am not a huge fan of the typical fall colors.  Going into a craft store in fall is enough to make me pass out with all the orange, yellow and brown!   Coupled with the fact that it is still 90 degrees where I live, this tour will be filled with small touches that make our home feel cozy this time of year.

If you are coming over from Life On Virginia Street– Welcome!  I just love Sarah’s style and her clean and neutral decorating.  If you are new here, I’m Jennifer – a Human Resources consultant by day and a design enthusiast and blogger in the wee hours of the night!  Our family recently purchased our dream home that we rented for 3 years, so are so excited to fix it up and make it our own one room at a time. Bye bye beige walls and hello color!

Welcome to our home.  Get yourself a pumpkin spice latte and come on in!

We recently painted our main living room this color blue.  The walls were DARK brown before, so I am loving the lighter look.  The gold mirror was a Craigslist score.  Had to travel about an hour to pick it up, but sooo worth it!

As I said, I don’t do typical fall colors, but I do love gold.  Hence the gold mirror and candle pot.

One of the few fall touches I have added are new pillows in a blush and rose color and a plaid throw.   fall-home-tour-2016-6

I also like to decorate our fireplace with baskets of wood for fall.  If you are going to copy a similar look, I recommend going with birch logs (the beauty queen of wood!)

I added these small green mums to my floral arrangement.  While I am not a fan of typical mums, these smaller green ones are compact and look more modern and fresh.

Fall is a great time to bring in your more natural elements.  I brought out this trinket box made of natural stone.

I recently moved some furniture around and my collection of obelisks.  Here is where they currently reside.  I actually have two more obelisks I added to my collection since these photos were taken.  Homegoods has had some recently for amazing prices!!

I hosted a small event earlier this month and I created a table runner made entirely of eucalyptus branches.  It was beautiful and even cascaded over the sides of the table.  I added in some cream roses for more interest.

We recently painted our dining room a deep purple, almost eggplant color.  I added a purple orchid and candles to compliment it.  I think deep purple or amethyst is a lovely alternative color for fall.

Classic sunflowers adorn our breakfast nook.  I like the way it pairs with the blue and white wallpaper.

What tour would be complete without a glimpse of the bar cart? I added some simple hand towels in a beautiful persimmon color from World Market to give a touch of fall.
