Fall Home Tour 2015

Hi and thanks for stopping in today for my fall home tour. If you are visiting from Darrielle’s beautiful blog, D.D.’s Cottage and Design, welcome, I’m so glad you’re here! Brenda from Cozy Little House put together this tour of 28 fabulous homes decorated for fall, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.

When Brenda invited me to participate in the tour, I was a bit hesitant at first because of the kitchen reno we’re in the middle of, but I knew that it would give me a chance to make a room in my house look pretty again, if only for a moment. So I accepted her kind invitation, moved all the tools and other construction junk into different corners of the house, and pulled my fall decor out. I’m happy to tell you that I was able to make my living room and foyer look like fall for a few days (at the expense of my other rooms), and it was nice to have a pretty room again.

One of my favorite things is my front door basket. You can see how easy this was to make here.

One of the crafts that I did was to add some leaves on the old window that I propped up on the cabinet. I bought this old, chippy window months ago to hang in the kitchen, but I’ve since found something else. I brought it in from the garage and it just sat, propped up against the wall, so I stuck it up here for now until I can figure out what to do with it.

I won the velvet pumpkins a couple of years ago from a favorite blog, and I love getting them out every year. Check out that awesome stem!

Summer temps have returned this week and I hope that they make it through. We have a long way to go until Halloween.

Fall Home Tour 2015 | chatfieldcourt.comIt was fun decorating my living room for the tour and it was nice to have a room all clean and spiffy, but, I have to admit, I’m still not ready to let go of summer.

Thanks so much for visiting and touring my fall home room, I’m so glad that you stopped in. Next year all of our construction mess will be cleaned up and long forgotten (hopefully) and I’ll be able to share my new kitchen decorated for fall. Speaking of the kitchen, I’m hoping to have an update Friday on our new countertops. They’re in and I’m so excited to show them to you!

  1. You couch! With the orange and black&white stripped pillows! Oh it’s perfect! 😀 I love all of the little touches you have done as well – the little acorns and leaves and such. There’s a lot going on, but not in a busy way, but in the there’s-always-something-new-to-see way, and it’s awesome 😀

  3. I felt the same way when Brenda asked me! Glad I’m not alone. Your fall touches are beautiful, and those velvet pumpkins are so luscious! One of these days I’m gonna get me some 🙂

    • Thanks so much Doreen. I wasn’t sure that I would have enough to share, since most of my house is in shambles, but I’m glad that I went ahead and did it. I’m really looking forward to your tour on Friday. 🙂 Oh, and you won’t regret it if you get some velvet pumpkins, I love mine.

    • Thanks so much Linda and I appreciate your visit. I’ve had a blast doing this tour with you (love your navy and brown fall living room) and all of the other talented bloggers. 🙂

  6. I’m impressed that you agreed to do the tour with all that you have going on. And you did a beautiful job too, Kristi 🙂

    Love those velvet pumpkins, but I haven’t broken down and bought one yet.

    xo,
    rue

    • Thanks Rue, how sweet of you to say. I’m just glad that I shared on the first day. I may have chickened out after viewing all the other beautiful homes. 😉

      I love my velvet pumpkins and look forward to pulling them out every year (although I’m always nervous that I’ll unpack them and the stems will be broken). 🙂

  7. Very, very classy, Kristi. I love this so much. You’ve balanced everything beautifully: nature’s bounty mixed in with warm textiles, the velvet pumpkins and soft pillows bring softness to the room. I have to tell you that I brought up your guest post from last Saturday and compared it to this post so I could clearly observe the seasonal transition in the entryway. I adore that hat! xo ~ Nancy

    • Awww, thanks Nancy. Your lovely comment made my day. I’m sure you know that when you have a small house, you have to try to balance your decor so it isn’t over the top (unless over the top is your goal, of course). I hope that I was able to achieve that. I’m so glad that you enjoyed my room tour. Hopefully I’ll be able to decorate my dining area and kitchen next year. 😉 Oh, and the hat is my husband’s yardwork hat. We call it his Indiana Jones hat. LOL

      Thanks so much for dropping by.

  8. Your home looks beautiful! I felt right at home and wanted to take my shoes off! Thanks. I’ve finished the other tours too, what a lot of talented ladies! Since I live in Florida and it is still in the high 80’s, I can’t quite put my head around fall yet.

    Brenda

    • Thanks so much for the sweet comment Brenda, I’m glad you felt at home. You’re so right, I am blown away by all the beautiful tours.

      I’ve lived in Florida too so I know what you mean about the weather and it not feeling like fall. There were years that I never decorated for fall at all. Hope it cools down just a bit for you. Thanks for stopping in today.

  11. Everything looks so pretty. I absolutely love fall and look forward every year to seeing its glorious colors. You have done a wonderful job with your home decor. Lucky you to win those great pumpkins.

    • Thanks so much Becky! I’ve always loved fall too, although I wish summer would have stuck around a little longer. 😉 I’m not usually lucky, so I was really surprised and happy when I won the pumpkins. They are one of my favorite fall decorations.
