Fall 2016 Home Tour

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? I finally got to meet Carrie in person on Saturday! She was in town for the Chicago marathon and we had a fun afternoon at brunch and then shopping! Carrie is so sweet and it was just like we've know each other for ages! 

My post today is long overdue! I love everything about fall from the fashion to the beautiful colors we see outdoors to everything pumpkin! I brought out my fall decor over Labor Day weekend and haven't had an opportunity to take photos until now. 

I usually incorporate Halloween decor during the month of October, but this year, with so much going on, I decided to kept it to a fall scheme. So without further ado, here we go! Starting with the front porch...

I made this wreath a few years ago and it's still one of my favorites. Check out my Fall Monogram Wreath Tutorial.

I won Leslie's giveaway last month and received this pretty lantern swag from Anne's Adoorables

This topiary style ivy heart wreath was easy to make and is perfect for indoors or out. Click HERE for the tutorial.

I had leftover paint from my chalkboard door tutorial and decided to paint our back door too.

Just like shopping your closet, I am big proponent of shopping your home. Swapping what you have from room to room gives your home a fresh look. I switched out the neutral pillows for the paisley print from our basement family room and then the summer foliage for fall leaves and branches. My candlestick holders that were missing last fall finally turned up and I substituted pumpkins for candles. 

I think I may have gone overboard with pumpkins. I almost picked up a few more from the dollar spot at Target the other day. I held off and did a count when I got home. According to my inventory, I have over 20! I think I'm set. 

Do you remember my kitchen table was robin egg blue? I finally refinished it over the summer and love how it turned out! I'll be sharing my how-to post in a few weeks. The only new additions in this room are the cute barnwood vase I picked up last month at the Renegade Craft Fair and the pumpkin spice mug from Cami Monet. You can get 10% off a mug for yourself with code DousedinPink!

I always have something seasonal hanging from this branch in my kitchen. Click HERE for my falling leaves tutorial.

We've had this stainless dining table almost as long as we've been married. I love the rustic urban vibe it gives off and it looks better and better with age. Instead of a table runner that always seems to be in the way, I keep a tray on the table that can easily be moved when it's time for homework or dinner.

I hope you enjoyed my fall home tour and as always, thank you for stopping by to visit!
