Early Fall House Tour

Welcome to stop number two on the "Eclectically Fall House Tour".
Be sure to start at Kelly's blog first. She is hosting this fun event. Her home is beautiful and I cannot wait to see how she decorated it for fall.

This year I had actually planned on going a little outside my comfort zone and using more oranges and yellows and reds when decorating for fall. However, after waiting as long as possible for there to be fresh pumpkins anywhere I finally gave up and stuck with some of my faux white pumpkins (quite a few are ones I've had for years and and then I also added a few more painted ones last week) and hydrangeas. So I guess this will be more of "early fall" decor and then hopefully once we can finally get our hands on some pumpkins and other things we can add some more traditional fall colors to the house.

For our main living space we updated the mantel with some fresh hydrangeas from the Farmer's Market and some other simple fall elements. and we added some cable knit pillows to the chairs and a fur throw. Those help the room feel a little more cozy and less summery.

Some faux fur pillows from this tour's sponsor, World Market really help add a cozy fall feeling to the room. (They also have some really cool baskets and area rugs!)

Stalks of wheat and antlers were some simple additions to our kitchen sideboard. I actually made the wheat bundle about 8 years ago and I'm kind of shocked it's still holding up! You can find more details about how I built this sideboard here.

And here are some images from our den/study:

You can get more details on our study here with full source info.

I played around with our new rolling cart in our dining room and added some more pumpkins, antlers, and hydrangeas.You can read the full tutorial on making these rolling shelves here. And a full detailed source list for the dining room here.

And yes, I actually chose several different sets of antlers from World Market, I didn't just move one from room to room for pictures -haha! I first bought two of them but loved how they looked so much and they were so well priced (plus the girls were quite fascinated with them) so I ended up purchasing several. 

The cupholder is one of my favorite finds from World Market. I bought one for our dining room and one for the kitchen. And I love the marble cakestand.

And here are some simple autumn touches added to our master bedroom:

Along with some pumpkins, antlers and hydrangeas I also added a warm throw to the bed to make it feel a little more cozy for fall. 

And then in our gray guest bedroom we added some branches from outdoors along with some turkey feathers. 

 And a couple of dark gray faux fur pillows.

And a simple white pumpkin and our fall canvas finish off the little vignette on the dresser.

You can find the fall canvas and print in our shop.

And then in our upstairs hall bath we added some more branches and a little white pumpkin. 

And in Lillie and Lola's room we just added a couple of painted pumpkins. 

 That's it for today! Hopefully some real pumpkins will start appearing soon and I'll have some more updated fall posts for you.

Thank you so World Market for sponsoring this tour! The items we featured from World Market were:
Faux Fur Pillows
Faux Cowhide Pillows
Chocolate Colored Lumbar Pillows
Glass Drying Rack (which I am using as a mug holder)
Marble Cake Stand

Mirrors for the Bathroom

We finally found mirrors for our upstairs bathroom. I had been on the hunt for what seemed like forever and was thrilled to come across these ones from Wayfair. They perfectly matched the faucets and were narrow enough but still nice and tall. They were just what I had in my head. I love how they look and the girls were quite excited that they could actually see themselves while brushing their teeth! (We had temporarily put a mirror from our last house in here so at least our guests could do their makeup and stuff like that but because of the shape of it when they girls were brushing their teeth they actually couldn't see in the other mirror at all). The best part was they arrived when I was in the middle of my dining room building projects and it was so nice to be able to go upstairs and hang them. It took me five minutes to get them up and was a treat getting to have the instant gratification! I still need to add some simple artwork above the toilet to help break the wallpaper up a bit and add a light fixture above the vanity but other than that this room is basically finished - yay!

This was unintentional (in fact I didn't even notice it until someone pointed it out on Instagram) but now every time I go into this bathroom I smile at how it looks like this bird is kind of perched on top of the mirror.
