Fab Fall Home Tour | Living Room + Front Porch

Hello Sunshine! Fall is my most favorite season and every year I get excited at the first glimpse of it! The cooler temps, hot chocolate, s'mores by the fire pit, pumpkin patch, baking, Thanksgiving, Halloween movie nights, wedge boots, blanket scarves, whats not to love.

I absolutely love to decorate my home! I change things often, always editing and tweaking. My design goal is for our home to always feel welcoming, a place that people can feel right at home. For the most part my home looks pretty much the same throughout the year. However, I amp up the level of cozy in fall.

Fall is a busy season for my family and we spend most of it in the great outdoors. It use to be consumed with soccer but now boys school ball starts in Spring so this year should be a little less hectic. After a long day all I want is to come back home to a cozy environment.

Just a little FYI, you really won't find any traditional fall decorating items in my home. No pumpkins or hues of red, green, or orange. Outside, now that's another story!

We will start off our tour in my living room and conclude out on my front porch. Lately I've been in a blue mood. No I'm not sad just loving any and everything blue. You will notice the blue influence throughout my living room. Lets get started shall we!
The area behind the door, as I call it, houses our tv. Our tv console got a complete makeover with chalk paint. It's now this lovely gray color that pops off the hardwood floors. I thought it was a good idea to start an art gallery wall and recently added a couple more pieces to my existing layout.

The print in the wooden frame is from a local Nashville artist, Ryan Rado. I picked that up at a pop up shop. I love those by the way, it's a great way to meet new interesting people and support the local market. The leaf print is actually a post card from The Menil Collection, a Houston museum. It's of a piece we saw while there last year by Henri Matisse. I can't wait to discover new art and add it to my gallery wall.

My hubby really doesn't like anything surrounding the tv so we often have to come up with a compromise. I moved the tv to one side of the console so that I could create a small vignette. The wooden lantern was a way for me to add back in a warm wood tone paired with a fun colorful bowl filled with leaves for my gratitude tree. You will find that I like to add greenery throughout my home, it provides a layer of softness and texture.


I recently talked about my big blank wall and the solutions I came up with. I originally wanted to have to picture ledges full of art but ultimately decided on an oversized painting. I'm not finished with this wall and I am currently in hot pursuit for a narrow bench and picture light.
The other side of the living room I wanted to be extra cozy. To achieve this level of cozy I'm after I snuck in a couple new pillows, one of which is an interesting texture, and a super soft throw blanket. Y'all I just love throw blankets. They are my jam and one can never have too many. I have a basket of throws with more throws on my blanket ladder I built.

A few months back I found the most perfect floor lamp and I love it! It fits nicely in the corner and provides the softest light. Just behind that gorgeous lamp are four frames that are mostly empty. One day, my friends, one day. The goal is to add interesting landscapes of the places we have been or desire to go.

The entire feel of the room changed when I put down our new rug. It has this modern vintage vibe thing going on. The coloring is amazing and it looks worn in spots just as a real vintage rug would.

This is the table where I love to rotate cute and often funny pictures of the kids. In good design there is always a personal element. On top of this stack of books is a bowl my youngest made at school and gave to me as a present. It's extremely special to me. The wooden plaque is stamped with my baby's tiny foot print from oh so long ago.
Outside I packed in as much fall as I can possible stand. That pumpkin wooden wreath is super cute and was my jumping off point. So naturally mums, pumpkins, and more pumpkins followed. Our porch is simple but yet screams fall.
I hope you enjoyed my tour and thanks for stopping by. Make sure to visit the other tour hosts and tell them I said Hi.


See ya soon!

    1. Lisa I've being leaning toward a lot of modern style design lately. I'm glad you can see that reflected in my home! Can you believe I got that copper pot at At Home?! Can't wait to add a self timing candle in it.

  9. Love the gray. I always wanted to do a gray somewhere in my home but I don't know how to make it blend with all the earth tones in the space. Any suggestions

    1. I would be happy to help you. Gray is a wonderful color that it will not only blend well with cool colors but also with warm, earth tones. Send me a few pictures and we can brainstorm together.
