Contemporary Fall Home Tour


To all my blogger friends and readers, Yes I am back, and hopefully will not be M-I-A again for awhile. No excuses at all, just plain old life happening, and of course a lot of things going on around the house which I hope to share here again after this Fall Home tour.

Actually, I wasn't sure I would be finished decorating for Fall in time for the tour, since aside from being busy like crazy both at work and at home, I have never actually decorated for Fall! This is a first for me.

Why the first time? Well, I usually go and jump on right ahead to my Halloween decorating, which most of you are familiar with and know about me by now.

Just like this one from Last year
If your coming from the fabulous cozy tour by Brooke from Nesting with Grace, your in for a bit of change here, So, without further adieu, I share with you my FALL HOME TOUR

Welcome to our home!

I love this eclectic rectangular wreath I got from AT HOME!

As you can see, I got my mums just today from my son's school fundraising and they
are obviously not in bloom yet!
Now, let's go on inside in our LIVING ROOM...
Contemporary Fall Decor

The Peridot pillow covers were made by my MIL for me. I scored them from Serena & Lily on clearance last summer!
The "Practically Perfect" pillow is from Disneyworld which comes out every Fall/Halloween

I thought of displaying my growing Acrylic grapes collection en masse along with my "Savage Beauty" Coffee table book
It's hard with a toddler lurking about, I have to minimize my coffee table vignette to a big and less cluttered one ;-)

I temporarily switched out my Gina Julian Abstract collection for my black mirrors

I love displaying my Homegoods lamps on top of the piano along with some of my brass collection.
The 2 Chinese figures are clearance scores from Hobby Lobby

The inspiration for my Fall Decor came from this Hobby Lobby Abstract art I recently scored

I mixed patterns on the chair and I think with the colors, it still somehow works!
Also moved my Federal mirror from the breakfast area to this window.

Now let's head off to the Dining Room...

I added these two Aviary Canvas prints that I normally display in the basement in the Dining Room for Fall

I got the sunflower inspiration from Kris @ Driven by Decor 

Kept my setting simple and used these Brass Chargers I recently got from a nearby Antique Store.
I did not decorate the bedrooms but I did add some touches in the Kitchen...

Come to think of it, I haven't shown my kitchen in a while...

I took this picture on one of it's good days ;-)

There you have it folks! I really want to thank Marty @A Stroll Thru Life for including me in this fabulous line up of homes! I am truly very honored.

I hope you join me sometime as I share details about my home at later posts! Also, DO NOT FORGET to check out all the inspiration-filled home tours below! Enjoy!

Have a Great Weekend!
