I am excited to be back today, sharing photos of my home, for the modern and fresh home tour series. This month, Lindsay from the White Buffalo Styling Co. and myself are hosting a blogger tour, where every day of the month of October, a new blogger will share her/his home, and their modern take on Fall-time decor! It's going to be great, and I'm really excited to finally share some good photographs for you guys, of my house. Lindsay and I will be be sharing our tours today, so head over to hers after you read this!
As you know, I've been working hard on getting it decorated. It's by no means done, but I have made a good amount of progress since we moved in in June. I've added a little Fall decor here and there. I'm sure I'll be adding some pumpkins in the future, too, but they haven't happened yet! Fall, to me, is about the cozy feel of blankets that you need when you feel that little crisp nip in the air! Candles, smells, and textures. I've added a bit of that to my home for the season, so come on in and let me show ya what I've done...
I got some mums for the front door; something I love to do every Fall. What about you guys? Usually I get yellow, but I bought white this year.
when you come in the front door, and close it, you see this:
I added the basket to the little side table recently. I love baskets for texture, and aren't they the perfect fall accessory?! I love that this one has the painted-on stripes. I got it at HomeGoods.
anyway, if you peer to the right of that scene, you will see the living room:
I love layered rugs, and I feel like it's such a cozy feel to create. I especially love my red-toned rug in here, which is worn and ragged. I have lots of blankets in this room, and pillows to snuggle with. The new couch is perfect for that! (forgive the chair with the ticking stripe draped across. I'm still deciding how I want to upholster it?)
I always love to have a candle burning in the house, but especially in the Fall and Winter. It just evokes a warm feel, and the good smells are a plus!
Right now, I have the an Archipelago candle that I'm burning (the red current scent). It's one of my favorite scents ever. And even though it may be tacky and cheesy, I also love Bath and Body Work's plug in's. I have the "Leaves" scent in my house right now, and it's the perfect fall scent! It's a combo of apple/cinnamon and it's such a nostalgic scent. Mmm.
I also always have candy corn out in the fall! My friend always gives me a bag every year - it's a tradition :) Thanks, E
The pipe/wood bookshelves that my dad and i built in August are starting to fill in, and I love them more and more every day! (didn't know that was possible. i sound like people sound when they're talking about their kids? Those things were a labor of love :) )
I've found i've been picking up pottery at thrift stores more and more these days (like the piece pictured on the shelves). i love the earthiness of it!
I just bought that cute black and white Nate Berkus frame at Target. I really love it!
And notice more pottery on this side?! :)
that's about it for the living room. onto the kitchen! our floorplan is really open, so creating coziness and warmth is at the top of my priority list. i still need things like curtains, but we're getting there...
This is the little pass-through that leads to the kitchen from the living area:
opposite of the kitchen cabinet area is the dining table/chairs:
again, with the layered rugs!
The fall light bounces in this room so beautifully, and my plants love it.
a friend made this new table that is in the kitchen! It will be getting its own post pretty soon here. I really love it - the artistry is amazing! It was supposed to go behind the sofa, but I moved it in here until the new sofa came, and I love it here. Who knows where it will really end up. You can visit Jason's website here for info on his work! I commissioned the piece and was able to select the size/wood/etc. Pretty awesome. I feel fancy.
last, is our bedroom. it's all white, with super tall ceilings. Again, still so much to do in this room, but it is feeling way cozier with the recent addition of our old white sofa up there.
Stay tuned, too, for a post about our new Crane & Canopy bedding which is amazing. And talk about cozy. I feel like our bed is a fancy hotel bed now. It's soooo freaking comfy! It's nuts.
Again, I upped the cozy fall feelings with blankets and pillows. I can't get enough of either, it seems?!
I hope you all enjoyed my tour! Stay tuned for these ladies, starting tomorrow!
