Happy Fall Home Tour! I can’t believe we are to this point in the year again! If you’re new to this blog welcome! I just love home tours. I love doing them and I love all the creative inspiration from other bloggers and designers! I usually stay pretty busy from August to January. That’s great because I love to have a set project to work on. Basically closing down the pool, school starting, and preparing for the holiday season is a major chore around here. Today is all about sharing fall with you. If you didn’t see the first part of my fall tour you can check that out here. I would say my style is moody, monochromatic, and luxe. I like to mix black, white and neutrals to create an elegant look. I hope you like my home decked out for fall.
I just finished this room up last week. I had a very old coffee table there for the 7 years we have lived here. Although it was old and not the right look, I kept it because it was the perfect size. Not many coffee tables are 49″x 49.” I love the new look because it is so modern and definitely more my style.
When the velvet ottoman was standing alone it was way too small and my dog kept jumping on it like it was her personal bed. I knew it needed something to make it work. The rectangular coffee table from Wisteria was the perfect answer.
The coffee table is fabulous, but the rug just pulls it all together. This room has neutral accessories that give it a great look for fall. The mustard pillows pair nicely with the gray pillows that are always the base for this room. The room felt so grand with the large ceiling to floor windows. We decided to paint the room Benjamin Moore’s Kendall Charcoal to give it a more intimate feel.
If you have ever thought about going with a bold, dark color trust your decision. Especially if it is a big room with lots of natural light. It adds such drama to the room.
I like how the dining room came together. I wasn’t sure what colors I was going to use at first. I just knew I wanted to use my black salad plates and started from there. It’s a lot easier when you have white or neutral dinner plates so you can really do any color scheme you want. You start off with a clean slate and take the centerpiece, napkins, and placemats anywhere you want to go. That makes styling the table for the different seasons so fun for me.
The centerpiece is a floral arrangement with picks arranged on each side. It looks like a swag, but it isn’t. It was done one piece at a time. I tried to make it look symmetrical. I think that was the key to pulling off this look.
What are you doing in your home for fall? There are so many colors you can go with. Anything really goes these days. You can mix metals and put together so many color schemes. I would love for you to leave a comment letting me know how you are decorating in the coming weeks.
I love these glass white pumpkins I put at the head of the table. I got them at Stein Mart. I check there often in their home section. They always have such cute stuff and I don’t think many people know about it so I feel like I have unique home decor items.
I love the fall wreaths on the front door. They look so festive. I got them at the end of last year. I love buying things at the end of the season because you can get them for a great price. I use these black planters year round. I have some for the back deck as well. In the summer I use them for beautiful flowers and plants and in the winter I put greenery and lights in them. Don’t you love something that you can use the entire year?
Try buying decor from different stores or collections so everything doesn’t look like it all matches. I love having several options to choose from when I’m styling a space or vignette. I love that look.
Another great investment were these black lanterns from Pier 1. I use them all the time. I use them in the summer and at Christmas time as well. I got most of my battery operated candles from Pottery Barn. They are definitely an investment at first, but I use them so much that I’m so glad I have them.
