Grateful Gatherings Blog Hop | Autumn Home Tour

As the temperature begins to drop, Autumn brings a new array of cozy delights to be excited and thankful for! It's a time when we prepare our homes for family gatherings and create a warm and cozy space to embrace the colder months ahead. I've teamed up with a group of wonderfully talented bloggers for the Grateful Blog Hop Home Tour, and we are going to share some amazing Fall decor with you! If you've joined me from Rhonda's blog, Hallstrom Home, welcome! I'm so happy you are here! Autumn to me means snuggled up under a warm, cozy blanket next to the fire, sweaters and boots, the smell of a yummy pumpkin spice candle, and of course PUMPKINS! If you read my last blog post {click here} you know that I have a little obsession with pumpkins...big or small, I'll take them all! 

Welcome...Y'all!

One of my favorite things about living in the south is the tradition of the "welcoming" front porch. The welcoming of family and friends customarily started out on the front porch. It is classically a social affair, where you are offered a seat and a cold glass of sweet tea or lemonade. I love to decorate my front porch for Fall as it's the first thing my guests see as I invite them to come in and sit a spell (for those of you not from the south, that means to come in and visit and take a load off your feet).

For late Fall, I decided to switch out the traditional fall colors that I had here. The inside of my home stays pretty neutral, and I decided to bring those neutral colors outside with cinderella and heirloom pumpkins, white mums, and a simple magnolia wreath.

ENTRYWAY

My indoor fall tour begins at my entry and it is one of my favorite places to decorate. I like this space to look cozy and inviting as I welcome guests into my home. One of my favorite things to do is to decorate with old windows. In my entryway, they hang above my credenza and adorn my foyer ledge that is over 12ft. high. They are simple but elegant, and can be easily decorated from season to season.

FORMAL LIVING and DINING ROOM

As you enter the foyer, my formal living room is on the right, and my dining room is on the left. The two columns that greet you as you enter the formal living room, made me fall in love with this house when we bought it years ago. When we redid the floors a couple years ago, they had to come down. I almost made the decision not to put them back up, but I'm so glad that we did!

The dining room is always my favorite room to decorate. I love creating tablescapes. These adorable pumpkin plates from Pottery Barn where my color inspiration for this years autumn table...continuing the muted tones of orange, green, and white with the cinderella and heirloom pumpkins. The burlap table runner is also from Pottery Barn. The placemats and napkins came from the Target dollar spot, and the wood chargers from Bed Bath & Beyond.

FAMILY ROOM and KITCHEN

At the end of the foyer, you walk into the family room, which is also open to the kitchen. This area is truly "the heart of our home" and where we spend most of our time. The family room is probably my favorite room to decorate. I like to keep it pretty neutral in here with soft colors. This space has a mixture of real and faux pumpkins. To add some simple fall touches, I have used lambs ear, cotton, and birch logs. I love my white tobacco basket and I get asked all the time if I painted it or if I found it that way. I actually found it like this, and I fell in love with it the minute I saw it! Also, how adorable is this "Pumpkin Patch" sign from Down Grace Lane!!!

I added very simple fall touches to my kitchen. We eat most meals at this table, so I like to keep the tablescape here simple. For this tablescape, I stacked the pumpkins on top of a chippy window, added some terra cotta pots for dimension and trimmed it with lambs ear and hops. Then, on each side, I added a simple white candle on a wood riser. I also added a few small vignettes with pumpkins around the kitchen. Add a few pumpkins to any space...and VOILA...instant Fall!

Corner Nook

Next, is this little corner nook that is tucked in between the living room and kitchen. Here I've added some neutral and rustic decor in shades of green and creams. In addition, you will find my favorite dough bowl, corbel, and scales adorned with, you guessed it...more pumpkins!

MUDROOM

Last, up on the tour, is my little mudroom off of the garage and laundry room. This little space is so fun to decorate, but it's also the catch-all as everyone comes in from the garage. So, it will soon be filled with backpacks, jackets, and shoes.
