Happy Fall, y'all! I am so delighted to be joining with *35* of my very sweet bloggy friends to bring you some truly gorgeous fall home tours! If you've been following along this week, you know what I'm talking about-- these ladies are talented!
So welcome to the Just a Girl and Her Blog abode! I've had a bit of a "thing" for neutrals this season, as evidenced by my very neutral fall wreath. Confession: Hardly anyone ever sees my front door, so the wreath is mostly just for me...and the UPS guy, I guess! 🙂 We always come in the garage, and our front door doesn't face the street, so you really have to venture back to our place if you want to see it! It's a nice touch when we have visitors over, though, so it's fun to change out the door decor with each season.
When you come in the door, you'll see the most recently finished space in our home-- our entry and command center! Though it's not looking particularly fall-ish, it is bright and welcoming. Plus, it keeps me organized! I don't know what I'd do without it!
Our main living area is what you'd come to next, and it includes our living room, dining room, and the Cs' toy area. Our living room is still a work in progress, but we're getting there!
It is so fun for me to break out all of my little tchotchkes and play around with them until they're styled just right on the coffee table, but my boys just don't get it.
Con doesn't understand why I have a bunch of pumpkins sitting on a tray. He keeps asking me if we can use them to decorate for Halloween. "Well they are being used for decoration, buddy," I tried to explain. But he seems to think it only "counts" if they're all lined up on a shelf somewhere...
He also picked up my little orb the other day and asked, "What's this for?" When I told him it was for sitting on the coffee table and looking pretty, he was all sorts of confused. And this is why I have to blog... to commiserate with people who "get it!" 😉 #boymomproblems
If you follow my blog on a regular basis, you've already seen my neutral fall shelf decor. I love to change these shelves around for each season! It is a challenge to try to come up with something unique and different each time!
This is just a plain mirror with a vinyl decal I cut using my Silhouette. I made it in about two minutes, and I love how it really fall-ifies the piece! So easy!
On to the dining area! I am an aqua girl, so I couldn't leave out my favorite color, even if it is fall! My nice little pile of apples didn't last very long. Every time I walk past the dining room, another one seems to be missing-- Baby C is a bit obsessed with apples and likes to carry one with him all day long! At least they were pretty while they lasted!
The hutch in the background belonged to my grandmother, so it is really special to have it as part of our home. I know painting furniture is the thing now, and I love a good furniture makeover, but I don't think I'll ever be able to bring myself to touch this piece!
I don't really decorate for fall upstairs at all, but here is a little sneak peek of what you'd see up there:
Our master bedroom...
...which includes our newly remodeled master bath.
The Cs' shared big boy room...
My fabulously feminine home office...aka my favorite room in the house!
And there you have it! Our house isn't huge, but we love it, and we definitely try to make the most of the space we have. Thank you so much for visiting our home! If you're looking for more fall inspiration, boy have I got a ton of it for you! Don't miss these other fabulous fall home tours:
