I finally got around to decorating for fall (this is considered SUPER late in the blogging world) and am so excited to share my Fall Home Tour with you guys today! I’m also excited my living room no longer looks like this:
My house was a mess this week, guys. In the back of that photo you can see my summer stuff about to get put away and everything else is fall décor. Watch my shelves go from summer to fall in this time-lapse video.
EASY FALL DIY TABLETOP DECOR
To give my home a handmade touch for fall, I did a few quick crafts I’ll share with you. The mini pumpkins you see in the video were decorated with sharpie paint pens. Super easy – I bought this 5-pack.
The stick covered candle you see was a fun little craft that took me less than 30 minutes. You can see me create one LIVE this afternoon on my Facebook page if you’re interested.
It looks beautiful all lit up!
And no, when the candle burns, the hot glue does not melt off. I never leave my candles burning more than an hour so the entire candle is never hot enough at one time for that to happen.
Covering the candle with sticks is a great solution for changing the color of a candle that doesn’t go with your décor theme. For instance, my favorite fall candle is pumpkin apple and that is usually RED. Since I no longer decorate with red in my home, it had to go.
LIVING ROOM AUTUMN DECOR
The styling of the shelves turned out to be a festive focal point for the whole living room.
On the other side of the living room, my space looks like this to work with teal…
You see lots of succulent houseplants and more neutral accents.
These pretty lamps I got recently with copper piping and a marble base. I love them, but they won’t stay in the living room because they’ll be used in my husband’s office makeover coming up in a few weeks. If you’ve been looking for a similar style, these lamps are perfect. Another houseplant and a metal basket full of pinecones finish off the simple tabletop décor.
I got this beautiful braided basket from the same place I got my lamps (secondhand, of course). Stuffed with a furry blanket, it is so cozy for fall. On the leather chair you will find my throw pillow covered with a DIY sweater no-sew pillow case. On the table you find a faux pumpkin I made with fabric and twine. All the textures in this space give it a lot of interest.
DINING ROOM FALL TABLESCAPE
My favorite part of this fall tour is the tablescape! I’ve only ever featured one other table setting on my blog for Christmas last year and I had so much fun doing it again! It reminds me of setting up a tea party.
I put together a colorful centerpiece and creative ceramics to show off a cozy and cute style for autumn. The beautiful bowls were actually made by my sister, Anne Meyer, who is a working artist in central Minnesota.
The branches in the centerpiece are sumac that I foraged outside my house. The adorable owl ceramic mugs I found at a garage sale long ago. I found a similar set on Amazon you can check out; I get so so many compliments on them!
That’s all for the inside on the Fall Home Tour. Now a quick peak out the door to send you off.
FRONT ENTRANCE FALL DECOR
This is the first fall with my teal door and I was nervous about incorporating orange with this green-blue hue.
In the end, it turned out looking cheerful and colorful and very inviting. Instead of a wreath like last year, I went unconventional using a large picture frame I decorated with a twine-wrapped monogram letter and faux leaves.
I also used a few vintage items: the old ladder and wooden bucket. The distressed wood signs were supposed to imitate old-fashioned hand painted signs. I did draw both freehand and you can learn how to make a wood sign like this yourself here.
And of course, pumpkins. What is fall without pumpkins?
Since we really have more of a front step than front porch, I had to get creative with the bench. I do sit on it to visit with neighbors and watch my kids play in the driveway, so the cushions are a welcome addition for fall.
So, are you exhausted? Me, too! That was a lot of photos! Please hit your pin button and share your favorite images and ideas from my Fall Home Tour on Pinterest!
I have a lot more BIG things coming up on my blog. Stay tuned for October’s One Room Challenge where I am overhauling our nursery to become my husband’s swanky work-from-home office. See you next Monday!
