Welcome to our home tour 2015. I live on the east coast in Virginia with my husband of 20 years and my 2 teenagers. I would love to have an open house so you could stop in and see my home. Since that is not possible, I will do the next best thing and have a virtual open house.
Last year I didn’t start my blog until November so I didn’t get to do a fall tour. If you are a regular viewer thank you for returning. If you are new to my site I’m happy to have you and I hope you grab yourself a drink and stay around a while. It is still in the 90s here, but after Labor Day, I’m always ready to bring out some fall decor. School starts and I feel like cleaning up and moving everything around.
My day to day decor goes best with my fall decorations. The colors and textures work well with the decor I already have. Maybe that is why I like fall so much. Or maybe it is the chunky sweaters, football, and pumpkin spice in everything.
I tried to take a few fall items and blend them with the decor I’m already using. I found this to work best with our home and my style. It also brings a simplicity right before decorating for Christmas (which is an undertaking).
The pictures taken in this post were done by my talented daughter. She has her own youtube channel called mint2btay03. She is quite handy when it comes to editing so I asked her to help out with this shoot.
Living Room Fall Home Tour
I didn’t do much to change the living room. I changed out my spring pillows and put out my fall colors. I used dark oranges and gold. I also placed a fuzzy brown blanket on the corner of the white sofa. The nights are getting a little chilly here. Let’s face it though…I keep my house very cold and there are always blankets out for my family and guests. I also put a couple white pumpkins out along with a fall floral arrangement. You don’t have to do a lot to transition to fall. Just change a couple things and you have a whole new look.
Outside Fall Home Tour
I hope you found something inspirational in this post. You may see an idea or color palette that might work in your own home decor. House tours are my favorite posts by far. When the seasons change I spend my evenings watching the home tours posted by talented bloggers. I know the Christmas tours will be coming up soon and I can’t wait. Please share this post if you liked it. I would love to see these pics pinned to pinterest. It means a lot to me that I’m starting to have some loyal followers on my blog. That is really an incredible thing and I appreciate your return visits from the bottom of my heart. Keep it up and tell your friends!!!!
