Well hello and how are you? If you made it here by way of Kate, thank you so much for joining me; so happy to have you here with me today. If this is your first time over at the Nest, welcome! Thanks so much to Jennifer and Jewel for inviting me back for this It’s a Colorful Life -Fall Home Tour. I’m so excited to be here with all these lovely ladies.
I normally don’t decorate for the seasons but this year I did leave a few “droplets” of Fall decor around the house this and I want to share my sprinkles with you all today.
Let’s start with the front door…..I did go a bit overboard here with the floral’s but I could not resist the fresh smell of the eucalyptus.
I also replaced the rug out front with this cool leather woven one. I love the muted colors and thought it was a nice subtle nod to the cooler seasons.
Living Room/Dining Room
You may have seen these two spaces on IG quite a bit lately as both were rooms done for the Spring One Room Challenge. The Dining Room in particular, was a part of fun collaboration with SmithHonig last month.
Both of these rooms were labors of love and they I’m happy to say that they now serve as my muses for my ever changing decor and accessories!
Young “Adults” Lounge
Due to the current state of affairs – my two youngest “kids” are attending school virtually. Seeing as that would mean them spending much more time than normal at home, in particular in their rooms, I wanted to give them both a small makeover of sorts.
My son’s room is still in the process of being completed….. (okay – we have yet to even begin)
However, my daughters room was completed a few weeks ago.
I think the combination of warm caramel and navy is so lovely and quite cozy. She’s very happy with her updated space and that makes mama happy too!
Fall Dining Al Fresco
I was DETERMINED to bring our outdoor space up to standards before the winter weather set in for good around these parts.
My husband extended our small cement pad this summer and I commenced my relentless hunt for outdoor furnishings – but Covid! Everything that I wanted AND worked within my budget was sold out – most items weren’t going to be restocked until November/December at the earliest! Ughhh
It took months literally for me to find a table for 8 ( I really wanted a table for 10-12 and I will have that next summer by any means necessary!) I was able to score 6 great modern and metal, outdoor chairs from one a IG buddy and these wonderful big comfy chairs from Christmas Tree Shops.
The wicker chairs were two different colors but that wasn’t an issue for at all. Changing a piece of furniture or a decor item, is an easy fix as long as I’m armed with a few cans of spray paint!
Coffee Table and Kitchen Banquet
So in both these spaces I simply added some floral’s and a few decor items and called it Fall! I think its says what it needs to without being overwhelming.
Thanks to everyone who came along for the tour; it’s been a blast!
