I’m so happy to be participating in the 2015 Fall-oween Home Tour Hop. There are a total of 16 participants, so that means lots of fall/Halloween home decor eye candy for your viewing pleasure! After checking out my home tour (this is the first time I’ve shared my living room, friends!), make sure to head over and view all of the other amazing homes in the tour! Seriously, these ladies have a lot of talent and so many fun decorating ideas!
This year, we decided to forego the over-the-top Halloween decorations and stuck with just pumpkins. Can you really go wrong with pumpkins in the fall? I found a bunch of great natural and neutral options at Trader Joe’s and mixed those with some store bought decor pumpkins that I painted white/black/gray.
Welcome to our home! To dress up the foyer, I added a simple herringbone pattern to the gray door with chalk, in addition to the old book page wreath that has been hanging around here for years. (It has held up wonderfully, by the way!)
Just inside the door is an old dresser we found on Craigslist for just $30! I added some greenery and a few pumpkins to dress it up a bit, but obviously, the cable spool clock is the main star of this area.
Can I just say that I love our Ikea Ektorp sofa and chair in our living room? Seriously, this couch and chair are the best things ever. (No, we have not been compensated by Ikea in any way for saying this.) They are comfortable for sitting/sleeping and have washable slip covers that can easily be cleaned up when our puppy decides to jump all over them with muddy paws.
Nevermind the wrinkles. That is just a side effect of frequent washing
This piano was our mother’s childhood piano and I inherited it from my grandparent’s home several years ago. I remember playing Chopsticks and other simple songs on it as a kid and I love that our children can now do the same.
Our kitchen hasn’t changed much since the last time I shared an update.
We would eventually like to add some shaker style fronts to our cabinets and hardware to dress things up a bit.
We installed these open shelves last year and absolutely love them! Yes, some of the items get dusty (the stuff on top), but it takes just a few seconds to wipe them off.
And being able to grab regularly used dishes and mugs easily has been great. I’m much more likely to make a cup of coffee these days (with sugar and cream, thank you very much!)
So that’s it! Our home all decked out for fall, that is, if you consider decked out to be very simple and neutral. But it is just the way we like it!
