Well, hello there, and welcome! It’s nice and cool here in Kentucky, and the leaves are starting to turn. Football games are in full swing, and pumpkins are primed for pickin’. There are Fall festivals going on, and the apple orchards are stocked with fresh apple cider…it’s my favorite time of the year! Grab a quilt, get comfy, and enjoy my Fall Home Tour!
Just in case this is your first time here, let me give you a little bit of info…my home is smallish, and we live here. With two kiddos, a husband, a huge horse of a dog, and a teeny little kitty, our home is very well loved, and quite broken in. We have a revolving front door and love hosting parties. As you will see, I have a vast love for all things aqua and white, and absolutely love chalkboards. The one above the mantel is my favorite…I made it using an old mirror last year right before Christmas!
I love tucking pumpkins everywhere I possibly can in the Fall. You’ll find them on virtually every surface!
This year I have also fallen in love with orange…it’s the perfect compliment to all of the aqua and white I think. I recently painted an orange shutter to add to my gallery wall, and just love it!
I added some sweet little mini pumpkin topiaries to my mantel…aren’t they the sweetest?
Now, onto my dining room. I like to keep it pretty simple on the table since it’s the busiest space in our home. I could put together a beautiful tablescape for ya, but I really want to keep it real, so I just placed a vase with some branches in the center of the table this year instead.
Since I don’t decorate the table so much, I like to add some pumpkiny goodness to the top of my hutch instead…did I mention how much I love little pumpkins?
I just love the feel in here…not too overdone, just right, I think.
Now, onto the kitchen! I took out some of the lime green items, and added some pops of orange. I spray painted a ceramic bird, added some of my Grandma’s dishes, and more mini pumpkins to add a little bit of Fall in here.
This is my favorite pumpkin so far this year…I mean mix pumpkins and aqua together, and what do you get? One happy Jessica!
I just love the way it all came together…whose ready for pumpkin pie?
This is my favorite spot in the whole house…my breakfast nook. It’s forever changing to suit the needs of our family, but I think it will be staying like this for quite a while. It’s my favorite place to work, think, eat, and just hang. I love the way the light shines in this little area, and the cozy feeling I get when I’m having my coffee here in the morning and working on my posts!
And since I love candlesticks, but don’t really love candles (weird, I know!), I like to add little pumpkins to the top of them instead. This year I found these pumpkins with perfect twisty stems. Aren’t they to die for?
While my breakfast nook is my favorite place inside my home, my patio is my favorite place on the planet! It is perfectly anchored by a Bradford Pear tree that was teeny tiny when we moved in. It has grown with our family, and gives us the perfect space for s’mores making and hanging with friends and family.
And now that it’s getting cool here in KY, it’s the perfect time for a fire!
Time to turn our little lights on, light the fire, and enjoy the evening.
Thank you so much for stopping by our little home…I hope you will come back and visit often!
