Neutral Fall Home Tour 2017

Before I get started I just wanted to say that I'm so unbelievably saddened to hear about the senseless tragedy that happened in Las Vegas on Sunday night.  My thoughts are with everyone that was impacted. 
Hello my sweet friends!  I hope you all had a great weekend whether it was fun, relaxing, productive or all three!  Our wasn't very relaxing but it was fun and productive because we finally got started on installing our floors.  But I'll share more about that in another post because today I want to share this year's fall home tour!
This year when it came to decorating for fall I did something a little different.  I skipped using my normal orange hues and instead stuck to an all neutral pallet.  I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out or if I would like it, but in the end I am actually really happy with how it all came together.
So come on in! 
You'll have to pardon the strange lighting in these photos! I took them two weekends ago while it was super dark and dreary outside because I wanted to get them before our house was torn apart for project floor demolition!
This wood leaf garland was an awesome Homegoods find and works perfectly along the banister.
And can we talk about how excited I was to find a huge bin of white pumpkins at Walmart?! I love having real pumpkins although I do hate that they are only good for one season.
I also did something different with my tiny mantle.  If you've seen my previous home tours you may recall that I usually stick a bunch of knick knack type of stuff on there.   It was starting to stress me out so instead I just used this pumpkin and eucalyptys garland from Michaels.


The colors of the pumpkins weren't working for me so I popped them all off to paint them white. 

I also made some hanging burlap leaves to hang in the center (tutorial here).
The item I was most excited to use was this little wheelbarrow.  I had a hard time deciding what to put inside, but once the flowers and white pumpkin landed in there I couldn't picture it any other way.
These gorgeous watercolor printables from the amazingly talented Sara at Twelve On Main look so pretty in my painted dollar store frames.

I also filled up my distressed zinc tray with some painted pumpkins.
 I always have the hardest time decorating the entry table.  Seriously, it can take me hours to decide how I want it to look and it almost always gets changed a few days later after I *think* I'm done.

My DIY neutral fall wreath on the front door adds the perfect touch of fall while blending in with my neutral theme.

I've mentioned before that my trick to working with our dark color sofa is using a lot of light colored pillows and blankets.  My new cable knit ones from IKEA are so cozy!

This is my last picture of this space with the old floors.  This area is looking quite differently today and I can't wait until I can show you!

This is also the last time you'll see that planked wall in the dining room.  While we were removing the baseboards last weekend we had to take part of it down. Well one thing led to another and I ended up ripping the entire thing down so that I could re-do it with wider planks.  More on that to come!

Can you believe these pumpkins were once those orange styrofoam ones from Dollar Tree?  The tutorial on how I updated them can be found here.

And let's ignore the fact that the planter wasn't centered  here and focus on how pretty my new gray buffalo check runner is instead! 

For the kitchen island I filled a smaller planter with yes--some more painted pumpkins.  You can never have enough, right?

The mudroom is pretty simple but my DIY pumpkin patch sign and burlap Dollar Tree pumpkin that I painted white are nice little touches.


Thank you so much for stopping by today my friends!  I hope you enjoyed this year's tour.  I will be back tomorrow to share my plans for the next One Room Challenge.  See you all then!

  1. This home couldn’t go much better, I really loved the way it was decorated and painted. I believe this could be the best home I’ve seen right now. Awesome work!
