Pumpkin Free Mini Fall Home Tour

beautiful fall home tour filled with fresh flowers and effortless decorating ideas

Hello, fall! It’s a season filled with family, friends, outdoors and fond memories of bonfires, apple picking, hiking and more. While I love holding onto summer, there’s just something about the scent and feeling of fall you can’t help but love. Over the last couple weeks we have slowly integrated a little fall decor into our home and I’m excited to share with you today! My friends from The Handmade Home, Thistlewood Farms, French Country Cottage, Lolly Jane and Our Fifth House are sharing their beautiful fall home tours with you today as well, for endless inspiration!

We’re wrapping up our kitchen remodel and for the first time in a few years, I was excited to decorate it.

I added limelight hydrangea throughout the kitchen…

and warm brass tones.

One of the biggest downsides to fall is that it makes me want to bake. My hips don’t lie.

Moving into the breakfast room…

I’m always inspired by the wildflowers that surround the area {and are also available at Whole Foods} this time of year. Since we’re easing into fall, the pretty pinks, purples and whites just feel right, especially when paired with kale! You can learn how to make this fall centerpiece here!

I’ve always thought our mudroom was designed for fall. Not sure if it’s because that’s when we started planning it or the how the brick adds warmth, but it brings me so much joy.

The simple addition of inexpensive seeded eucalyptus will last for a month or two. I love the subtle hints of purple mixed with the soft green.

Our neutral paint colors make transitioning to fall a breeze. With just few fresh blooms like chamomile and a new hand towel {not sure why I didn’t photograph it}, the mudroom bath feels fall fresh.

Finally, a sneak peek of our bedroom. We refurnished it last fall, but I never finished decorating it. I vowed to finish it when the kids returned to school and, well, here we are! I framed a photo from the 1904 World’s Fair that was at the same location Chris and I married. Did you know that a lot of history museums offer free images for personal use? It’s glorious. There’s nothing prettier for fall than a little piece of history. And magnolias. I couldn’t resist adding a few branches in our bedroom.

  1. Julie, WOW your fall home tour is stunning! I enjoy seeing the soft rich colors being used for fall. I am in the middle of a kitchen remodel and love using your kitchen for inspiration. I was wondering if you would share where the wood beadboard came from – (don’t like the fake paneling). Hope you can get back to your lake house soon to enjoy the beautiful fall! Peggy
