Fall means warm meals cooked with love in the kitchen, cozy nights at home cuddling under blankets, cool mornings outside with a cup of Trader Joe's pumpkin coffee and my journal, and evenings hanging out with friends who feel more like family. Fall means drives in the country and fresh beginnings. Fall means beauty and warmth. I believe decorating a home for the seasons means creating a place to invite the joys of the season into your house. Yes, I love all the seasonal decor like flowers in the spring, pumpkins in the Fall, and greenery during Christmas season, but it's about more than that. It's about a place to make memories. And I have to admit, I love staging things and making them look pretty, too.
Also, let's be honest, our house doesn't look like this all season long. Sometimes life gets messy. Also, I reused pumpkins in different places for this house tour. I say that because I've learned something recently about blogging and taking photos. It's ok to gussy things up and make them look beautiful, and it's also ok to understand that things aren't always picture perfect. But there's something important about enjoying the pretty little things for the sake of it.
So, come on in. In keeping with what I said earlier, I kept things pretty simple. I focused on mixing in some warm colors, making throw blankets available, and dotting pumpkins around the house.
Come on in to the reading room!
Come on downstairs to the basement. Let me show you our new mudroom.
Now, I'll give you a peek into our master bedroom. Ever since the grand reveal of this room transformation, I haven't shown it off a whole lot, but today I set it up for breakfast in bed and added decorative pillows to the bed and window seat which I haven't done before.
Thanks for coming around and checking out our home all decked out for Fall. I can't wait to show you some outside spaces soon! We are working on a new space outside that I think you will love!
