Fall Home Tour 2016

Fall Home Tour 2016

Welcome to my first fall home tour, ya’ll! While it is still well into the nineties outside and my A/C went out yesterday, I am going to try my best to give you guys some autumnal spirit.

Given that the last blog post I published was my summer home tour,  I am a tad bit embarrassed.  Simply put, I have been overwhelmed and exhausted since the birth of my second baby boy back in April.

You see, I have been trying my best to adapt to being a mother of two, commencing my marketing job (after being on maternity leave) and busting my a$$ in the gym(not only to lose the baby weight, but because it is my only “me” time). (excuses , excuses…I know!)Nevertheless,  inspiration fizzled out, and blogging was put on the back-burner. And while many of you superwomen out there probably think that is child’s play, the struggle has been real for me.

But, when my talented buddy Meg from Green with Decor invited me to be a part of her Fall blog hop, I decided to put on my big girl panties and come up with something for ya’ll.

For those of you who don’t know me, I am not a huge seasonal crafts type of gal. I introduce the seasons typically through textiles, texture and season-appropriate florals.

And while my aesthetic is heavily influenced by California- coastal flare (although I’m a hillbilly living in Tennessee), in the fall, I do my best to highlight the rustic elements of my decor, while slightly underplaying the coastal aspects.

This year, I jumped on the Kilim bandwagon and ordered some turkish pillow covers off of Etsy. The covers were actually crafted from vintage Turkish rugs.

I think they add a nice pop of warmth among an otherwise cool backdrop of colors. I love how Kilim not only works well in rustic settings, but has also become a staple in recent California, bohemian interiors. This incorporation of textiles keeps my transitional design “fresh” and up-to-date while also bridging the gap between what I am currently seeing in coastal and rustic modern interiors.

For me, fall is not only synonymous with football, pumpkins and colorful leaves, but also “owls”. Yes, when autumn rolls around I always whip out my owl decor.

And in an attempt to further downplay my coastal vibes, I traded out some of my turquoise sea glass for some newly purchased Chinoiserie. And I am pretty sure chinoiserie is becoming my new obsession.

Just like Kilim, I believe it holds the capacity to look cohesive in any genre of decor. To me, it gives the impression of a more curated and “lived in” space.


Moving on to the foyer, I have included the obligatory fall vignette complete with a scarf and leather boots.  What kind of slob lives here?

I should receive some sort of an award for all of my cleverly shot photos….I was somehow able to work around all of the baby gear. I have tricked you all into believing my house is clean and I don’t have swings, bumbos, high chairs and jumpers in every corner of my residence.

Don’t even get me started on my two-year-old. While I love him dearly, the house normally has trains and Paw Patrol figurines scattered through out.

And if you haven’t noticed, my husband and I love our libations. My husband considers fall to be scotch season, while I will gladly settle for a glass of cabernet sauvignon or the occasional Moscow Mule .





In case you didn’t get enough fall paraphernalia in the other rooms of my home, I threw some more in my office/mudroom.
