Fall Favorites: Fall 2018 Home Tour

This is my very favorite 'fall favorites' post.  I love decorating, period, and when its for the seasons it is the best.  The addition of fall decor instantly adds a cozy element to any space.  This year was even more fun since I got to decorate my new place!  Even though my everyday stuff isn't done, being able to layer in fall to the existing things I do have, made it feel more like home.

Welcome!

Sorry for the poor photo, but I was to excited to show off my wreath!  It's been so long since I have had a wreath on my door, and I love it.  What's even better, is that this is a hand me down from my mom - she got a new one last year, but kept this and was generous enough to give it to me.  Thanks, Mom!

Living Room


I love that my new place has a fireplace.  I have always loved the look of a leafy garland on fireplaces and was super excited to be able to do one myself!  I wanted to incorporate wheat somewhere, and this glass bottle was the perfect spot.  My mom and I found this faux wheat at Michaels (along with the garland), and cut it down to size.  My mom pointed out that this would be less messy, and would keep forever, too!  We finished dressing the mantle with a few pumpkins I already had, added my oldie but goodie twine pumpkins on the hearth, along with a galvanized bucket full of pumpkins / gourds to balance it out.  The pumpkins / gourds are part of some filler bags that I got at Hobby Lobby some years ago.  To add enough height, we stuffed plastic shopping bags in the bucket, then topped with the pumpkins / gourds.


The glass bottle was my grandma's that I happily took off her hands.  I already had a few books stacked, so I added one more for height, a few pumpkins and a crock.  From left to right, the burlap pumpkin is an old Target dollar spot find, the twine pumpkin is actually a pick, but with the 'pick' part broken off, and the velvet pumpkin was a Home Goods find.


Candle holders are from Hobby Lobby (new this year - we found them in the fall section), and the flameless candles are from World Market.  I have them scattered all around my place!  And to make it even better, I set all the timers so that they go on right before I get home, so I always come into a cozy space.



One of the next things on the to do list is adding some wall hangings above the couch!  But for now, I think it still looks pretty darn cozy.  On the trunk end table, I have little mercury glass candle holders from the Target dollar spot.  They came in blue, too, so I grabbed those to go with my everyday decor.  All the pillows are my everyday pillow covers, too, but since there is some orange in there, it lends itself to feeling fall-ish.  


A few pumpkins on an orange plate adds a little something something to this end table.  Again, those twine pumpkins where picks that I got at Hobby Lobby, and just cut off the 'pick' part.


One of my favorite fall candles (William Sonoma), plus my recycled glass pumpkin (from Pottery Barn - still in love with it!) complete my coffee table decor.  We took some leaves (from the filler that the pumpkin / gourds from my fireplace game in) and added them inside the pumpkin for color.  My mom said she saw this at the store, and it was a great way to pair something new with something old!


Some more new items this year - pumpkins / gourds from Pottery Barn.  They are so nice and classic - I know I will use them for years to come!

Dining Room

The buffet was one of the most fun areas to decorate.  We did that first and I feel like it came together so well!  A few leaves for color (again all from that filler), a little white pumpkin, my favorite pumpkin bowls (from Pottery Barn), and tiny pinecones.



This area got a bit of fall with a new pumpkin (from Pottery Barn), and then a wooden charger leaning against the mirror (also from PB).  The lantern and greens are part of my everyday decor...the lantern is a Hobby Lobby find, the greens are from IKEA, and the container I got at one of the Vintage Market Days flea market here in town.


Pumpkin plates and napkins are from PB, chargers from Hobby Lobby, runner from The White Rabbit, cake stand from Magnolia, candle wreath from Three French Hens, hurricane from the Dollar Store / Tree (one of those places - I have had it for years!), and another World Market flameless candle.  Not much has changed from last year, with the exception of the runner.  I decided to keep my 'normal' runner in place of the orange one I normally have - I just liked the contrast of color! 



A fun little vignet here - pillow from The White Rabbit, pumpkin from Target dollar spot a few years ago, and a bucket full of pinecones (from the Hobby Lobby filler!).

Kitchen

The board and batten wall got a little dressed up for fall with all my fall favorites - rain boots, my rain coat, felt hat, blanket scarf, and military jacket.


I know it's a terrible picture, but I added just a grapevine wreath to the backdoor with some fall ribbon, and then another pumpkin bowl to the wire basket to corral some odds and ends.


It wouldn't be fall with out my pumpkin spice lattes (and the cute little pumpkin bowl to hold the packets)!  I also got this cute little kitchen towel from the Target dollar spot.  

Hope you enjoyed a little peek inside!

Thanks to everyone who participated in this year's Fall Favorites link up.  Sarah and I just love fall, and it's so fun to share in that with you all.  Until next year!

Linking up with Lindsay, Jessi and Jenn.
