Brilliant Colors Of Fall - Home Tour
Updated: Jul 25
Hello friends! It's been super busy (and stressful) over the past several months, but I thought it would be important to welcome and celebrate the beginning of the fall season with the Brilliant Colors of Fall Home Tour! Every season this year looks different (thank you COVID19!), but I still think it's good for us to take a moment to celebrate the little things this year. I have certainly pared down in the year 2020, but I have enjoyed sprinkling a little bit of decor here and there, and this fall is no different.
If you are visiting from Areeba's home, welcome! Or if you are a regular here, thank you so much for stopping by to check out my fall home tour. On this week long tour, you will find a ton of inspiration no matter your style of decorating. Whether you are looking to go all out or if you are more in the mood for minimal, my blogging friends and I have you covered. So be sure to check out all the fun accounts linked below at the bottom of this post.
In the past, I have decorated almost every room in my home for each season, but this year I have added a sprinkling here and there primarily in the rooms where we spend most of our time. This fall, I've focused more on bringing out the cozy with blankets and throw pillows and adding a few fall stems here and there. I'm ready to jump right into this home tour, so go grab yourself a warm cup of tea, coffee or apple cider and let's get started on the Brilliant Colors Of Fall Home Tour.
As you enter our modern home, the first think you see is our console table and mirror. This year, I stuck with what I have and added some neutral pumpkins and greenery that I already owned. It's amazing how you can change up the look of something by just creating a different combination or rearranging things in a different way.
This collection of faux pumpkins and gourds is a fun mix of soft and neutral colors. In the past, I've added them to different parts of my home, but I have never combined them to create a faux "pumpkin patch". I must say, I'm loving how they look all together with some simple greenery styled on my console table.
Before we move on with our tour and leave this space, I wanted to show you a quick view of the travel gallery wall that peeks through in my study. I love seeing those photos on a regular basis, especially during a time when we are no longer able to travel. I've shared exactly how I put the gallery wall together in this post linked here.
As I take you into my great room, you will see that things are pretty cozy in here.
Instead of using large oversized pillows on my sectional, I opted to smaller pillows of various prints and colors and grouped them on either side of the couch. It's a totally different look than I'm used to, but I really love the pillow pairings. Mixing a combination of white, black and caramel faux leather was the perfect fall touch for this space and added so much warmth.
You may notice a few leafy stems peeking out through the corner here. These stems are from Michaels and I love the combination of pale green and taupe. These leaves are totally in keeping with the theme of a minimal fall look, but still add a pop of freshness.
The ottoman is our favorite place to put our feet up, but I didn't want to leave it bare, so I threw together a quick fall centerpiece using some eucalyptus leaves and faux pears. You may remember that I have used these pears last year for a fall tablescape (linked here). I was rummaging through my basement in preparation for this fall home tour and stumbled upon these pretty pears. It was like it was meant to be!
The great thing about this centerpiece is that it can be used from late summer all the way through the holidays and into the winter months. A decor item that transitions multiple seasons is always a great idea in my books!
As we shift over to the right, you will see my built in shelves and fireplace surround. This is one of my favorite places to decorate each season. This view is front and center in our open concept home and you can really catch a glimpse of these shelves and our fireplace from almost all angles of the house. This room was made over for the One Room Challenge last fall and you can catch more details here.
On the left of the fireplace, I opted for a whimsical arrangement made up of alliums, eucalyptus, soft pink feathers and berries and I just love the look! This mixture of stems adds the perfect pop of color in this space and mirrors the stems I used in the DIY fall lunaria wreath. Last week on the blog, I shared how to make this simple wreath and you can find it here. I really struggled with where to place the wreath and finally decided to hang it off of a shelf in the great room. What do you think?
On the shelves, you will see that I have some repeated several elements for consistency. Items like mercury glass votives, mini wooden trays and photo frames are a great way to warm up your shelves for fall and also personalize the space.
On the other side, I have more wooden candle sticks and another allium arrangement. Now let's head on upstairs to the master bedroom for the very last stop on this Brilliant Colors of Fall Home Tour. For you readers that have been with me over the past few years, you know that this bedroom makeover was a total labor of love. I made it over for the Spring 2019 One Room Challenge, and you can read all about it in the reveal here. I am also thrilled to say that this master bedroom was featured in Apartment Therapy here!
The most challenging (albeit fun!) part of this makeover was the accent wall. For less than two hundred dollars, I was able to take this master bedroom from drab to fab! The accent wall never gets old and I just love the sneak peek every time I walk up the stairs.
Since the master bedroom is our nightly retreat, I kept the decor in this room to a minimum. To add some color, I opted for these kilim pillows, also from Apartment No3 and I paired them light pink and white pillows for a softer look. I just love how this pillow combination pops against the dark navy accent wall.
I decided last minute to whip up these DIY ombre vases and filled them with taupe peonies and plum colored floral stems. They were a great addition to our night stands and I love how the florals pop against our navy blue accent wall.
