I am not going to be too chatty today, just let you enjoy the tour and all of its “fallness”.

Our living room has simple changes that change the tone of the room – switching out of the pillows, changing over the accessories on the coffee table and replacing the mirrors with a wreath.   Simple changes – major comfort impact.  This is where I cuddle with my morning coffee.  And yes, I do cuddle my morning coffee.  We have a very tight relationship.

From the hints of color in the plants on our front porch to the fabric I chose for our dining room table, I kept finding myself drawn to purple this year.

As soon as I saw this fabric, my wheels were turning.  Then when I touched and realized it was flannel, there was no going back.  A grouping of cabbage plants and hydrangea in white and pewter containers was all the center needed – and of course a few candles.

Classically simple white plates make for a perfectly comfortable table. I will be sharing more details on how I pulled it all together soon.

Our family room is nice and bright and filled with blue and green accents. I again turned to dried hydrangea, but this time with blues and greens and then added warm browns and some gold touches.

I love decorating mantels – always have.

I will share more details on this project soon too!

These birdhouse gourds are extra special – they were one of the few things we were able to grow in the garden this year. Actually, being honest, the garden was all Hubby this year. The flowers are from cuttings given to us by my Father-in-law when we first moved here. They are Autumn Joy Sedum. They go from green to pink to red as the season goes on – my favorite.

Our gallery wall makes me happy. I only made a few changes – changed out a display box for the gold mirror and added the deer paint-by-number painting. I also changed out the accessories on top of the table – just a little bit of a flavor of fall.

Truth – I have not spent a lot of time in the kitchen lately. Busy schedules and a stove that was broken for over a month. Now that the cooler weather is setting in, I am hoping (as is my family, I am sure) to start cooking up a storm.

I am guessing that you might be wondering why a kind of sad looking white pumpkin is in our windowsill.  For ten years we have tried to grow Lumina pumpkins and this is the best we have ever gotten. By golly she is getting a place of honor on a pedestal!

God was good to us this fall with an incredible abundance of hydrangea and I am ever so thankful.

  25. Teresa says:

    Laura,
    You kicked off the Finding Fall House Tour in great style as always. I tried to narrow it down to one thing from each house that caught my eye. I loved that plaid purple, gray and white table cloth you used. I think purple is a beautiful color to use in fall decorating.

  26. I am in love with it all! Just blown away by your talent! Your home is definitely magazine worthy :)

  27. Sigh….can I move in? I don’t take up much room! ;-) Your home is just absolutely gorgeous Laura and it seems to just come alive in the Fall with the addition of all of your beautiful seasonal touches. You have such an eye for details and make it look effortless. So thrilled that we get to be apart of this amazing tour of homes! :-)
    Vanessa

  28. LOVE your home…I am a new follower!! Can’t wait to check out more of your blog!

  29. Everything looks lovely. Nicely done girl! :)

  30. Laura,
    I love your use of color for Fall. I am not one to use the typical autumnal colors in my home and I see you aren’t either. You chose the perfect Fall colors for your home. I have a pinboard called FALLISH and your colors fit perfectly on my board. Thank you for sharing your warm cozy home.

  40. This is just beautiful! I’m just getting started, and your home has given me so many great ideas. Your Lumina pumpkin and my one tiny birdhouse gourd can hang out together :)

  41. Beautiful! Someone gave me a white/gray pumpkin last year and I cooked it up at the end of the season. It had the thickest. orangest, sweetest smelling flesh. I’ll be on the hunt for more pumpkins like that this year.

  42. Laura all your touches looks wonderful! You have inspired me to get my fall decorating started.

  43. I love your home… While I am drawn to the homes like Thistlewood farm and Dear Lillie that are all white and soft I find that I can not decorate in my own home without color… I love that you like color as well!!! Your home is beautiful!!!!

  44. Laura! Thanks for the beautiful tour! What a fantastic series. We bloggers love touring homes. Your home is warm and interesting. I love the vintage touches here and there. Your living room where you hug your coffee mug is very warm and cozy. Love the wallpaper on the wall. I also love your about you page! The family photo in black and white on the truck is amazing. I too, love hydrangeas. I’ve been drying them like crazy. Limelight turns so many beautiful shades and just keeps on giving and giving. Now I’m off to tour the next home.

  45. Absolutely stunning, Laura!! I am in LOVE with your beautiful kitchen and warm, inviting decor! You’ve created such a gorgeous home! Thanks for sharing with us!!

  52. Donna says:

    I love your home Laura. You always have the warmest touches no matter what the season. The colors are lovely. The hydrangeas are so beautiful. I really love your dining room and tablescape. The front porch is so inviting.I think it’s my favorite but I’m always interested to see what you have tucked into your wooden boxes on your table. I just have to find one of those to use. You are so inspiring!

  53. I love your home but especially love your kitchen. I hope to finally tackle our kitchen in the next year or so (a complete gut job will happen, all the way down to the studs and hopefully the original wood floors) but I hope it will look like yours when it’s done. So pretty!!!

  54. Laura your home is so beautiful, warm and inviting. And so much inspiration too! Thanks for sharing!
