I’m so excited to share in the fall tour blog hop 2016 with a group of my talented blogger girlfriends.
Hi everyone, I’m so glad you’re here for my Fall Tour Blog Hop 2016. I hope you’ve enjoyed all the tours that have been shared this week. A big thanks goes out to my friend, Meg from Green with Decor for hosting this fun blog hop. I love seeing everyone’s different styles and how each blogger makes their house their own.
Today, I’m inviting you to come visit our family room because honestly, that’s the only area I’ve been able to add any touches of Fall. It’s been in the 90’s here in Hotlanta! Even though Fall is my favorite time of the year, I can’t mentally get into Autumn mode until the weather starts to cool down a bit. Even so, I had a good time scattering a few faux pumpkins here and there. This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience.
A couple of weeks ago, I shared how I easily painted some craft pumpkins to fit my aesthetic.
I have two limelight hydrangea plants that bloomed this Summer. You don’t know how excited I was to see them! I dried some stems and included them in my Fall decor. All you have to do is cut your hydrangeas when they are fully mature or right before they start turning brown. Limelights start out a creamy white color and gradually turn into a pretty shade of lime. I just cut and place them in a vase which allows them to dry naturally.
Old books are seriously one of my favorite things to put around the home. I love the look of an old rugged book. The faded spines and yellowed pages add so much character and charm.
I love decorating this Everett console table from World Market. It’s quite long which fits nicely behind our sofa and is currently on sale!
About two years ago, I found these awesome shutters at a garage sale. The owner was an interior designer and she was selling some great stuff including shutters, designer fabrics, furniture, books, etc. I bought 2 shutters, some design books and a bolt of fabric for a steal. I used the fabric and sewed curtains for my kitchen windows. I had the shutters stored away knowing I would eventually find a place for them. Well, it took me about 2 years but one afternoon, I thought hmmm… I wonder how they would look on the mantle!
I placed the two shutters side by side and realized the height was perfect. I’m going to have a lot of fun decorating the mantle this year for the holidays! I made that sign a while back and it’s the verse I end with every blog post. What do you think? I love that they add some dimension and height to the otherwise plain mantle.
I went outside one day and cut up some branches from the backyard. I even cut a few azalea branches from my neighbor, Adrienne’s backyard. Thankfully, she’s generous to share all her lovely plants with me. Simple branches can easily be just as beautiful as flowers. I love being able to bring nature indoors. The “hello” pillow is found here.
If you’re thinking…. how does she have white slipcovered couches with 3 kids? The answer is #bleach. I love these slipcovers and the stains and dirt that naturally occur do not bother me because they are easily washable. Our rug was bought from Homegoods but you can find a similar neutral one here on Amazon.
I appreciate you stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the little tour of our nest. We love our home and it’s truly a place where life happens. Be sure to follow along with me on FB and IG if you want to see more shots of our abode.
Be sure to check out the rest of the home tours for today. Tomorrow will the last day!
Have a great Thursday!
Let all that you do be done in love. 1 Corinthians 16:14
