Hello! Welcome to my Eclectic Fall Home Tour. I am joining Marty from A Stroll Thru Life and 30 other bloggers to share our Fall Homes this week. I love home tours, it is so fun to be exposed to new bloggers and get ideas on how to decorate our homes with the change of the seasons. For those that are new to my blog, welcome! We are a family of 5 living in Connecticut and have been for almost two years. We live in an 1100 square foot cape style home. Our home is about 800 meters to the beach and about an hour into New York City. We love our location and all that we have been exposed to. Fall has been one of our favorites to experience, all of the old trees changing colors is just stunning. Living close to the beach is a little different for fall decor, not your typical orange colors and rusts mesh with my lighter beach feel. Our Fall Home lends itself to an eclectic style. Come see for yourself…
White pumpkins are a must for me every year. I really don’t have any fall decor that I keep in totes and bring out with the season change. We just don’t have the space for that. I make up for it with real pumpkins, potted mums and ornamental lettuce.
I added mini white pumpkins to our window box with our topiaries. We recently gave the front of our home a little face lift. You can read more about that HERE.
This is the first room that you see when you walk in our home. We spend a lot of time in this space. We don’t have a TV in this room and I really like it that way. We read books in here, listen to music, move the ottomans and dance and listen to the girls play the piano. I keep it cozy with a lot of throws and soft ottomans.
I am known to keep clippers in my car…or to send my husband on an errand to clip something I saw on the side of the road (he is pretty awesome). If I am ever arrested or divorced this will be why! I used
oak leaf branches maple leaf branches in a couple of vases for my fall decor in this space.
If you are a regular to my blog and Instagram this chalkboard should look familiar. It was a broken mirror that I painted the back with chalkboard paint. I recently moved it into this space from our kitchen. I like the simplicity of it for the Fall and Christmas. I did a phone interview the other day and they asked me what I write on the chalkboard, I told them nothing…ever! I like it clean and simple. (I will be sharing next week what I replaced the chalkboard with in our kitchen).
Soft lighting and lamps are essential for the fall when the time changes when it gets dark at 5:00 pm. I shared how we added a plug to that hanging light and where it is from on THIS post.
I added THESE new pillows from Danielle Oakey Shop. I love them so much. I want to put a pair in every room! I really like the little touch of orange for fall and of course the pink always makes me happy.
I added THIS temporary wallpaper over the summer. I thought it was a summer look, but I actually really like it with my fall. It is moody and goes with whatever color you want to highlight. I added THIS wool seat cushion to our piano chair and my girls really love that addition for fall, keeps their little bums warm. One of my favorites that I don’t see changing anytime soon is our large clock, even in a tiny house you can have big pieces that make a statement.
I found this vintage copper bowl at Good Will and filled it with white pumpkins. Such an easy way to add a touch of fall to your home.
I don’t really add fall decor to every room in our home. I do make a few simple updates, more for the weather change. In our daughters shared bedroom I switched out their light weight sheets and quilt for THIS Beddy’s bedding. I really wish I would have gotten this bedding sooner! It is SO easy for my girls to make their beds. It zips up! Seriously this is genius and gorgeous.
The only other change I made was adding branches to our little deer head for his antlers.
I planted a few new plants in the girls terrariums that we recently made. You can find the DIY HERE.
Make sure to follow along on the rest of the Fall Home Tours! Here is the line up-
