Fall Home Tour

Fall Mantel With Large Chalkboard

Well, hello there, and welcome!  It’s nice and cool here in Kentucky, and the leaves are starting to turn.  Football games are in full swing, and pumpkins are primed for pickin’. There are Fall festivals going on, and the apple orchards are stocked with fresh apple cider…it’s my favorite time of the year!  Grab a quilt, get comfy, and enjoy my Fall Home Tour!

Fall Mantel Decor with Pumpkins and a Chalkboard

Just in case this is your first time here, let me give you a little bit of info…my home is smallish, and we live here.  With two kiddos, a husband, a huge horse of a dog, and a teeny little kitty, our home is very well loved, and quite broken in.  We have a revolving front door and love hosting parties.  As you will see, I have a vast love for all things aqua and white, and absolutely love chalkboards.  The one above the mantel is my favorite…I made it using an old mirror last year right before Christmas!

Fall Home Tour

I love tucking pumpkins everywhere I possibly can in the Fall.  You’ll find them on virtually every surface!

This year I have also fallen in love with orange…it’s the perfect compliment to all of the aqua and white I think.  I recently painted an orange shutter to add to my gallery wall, and just love it!

I added some sweet little mini pumpkin topiaries to my mantel…aren’t they the sweetest?

Fall Touches around the House

Now, onto my dining room.  I like to keep it pretty simple on the table since it’s the busiest space in our home.  I could put together a beautiful tablescape for ya, but I really want to keep it real, so I just placed a vase with some branches in the center of the table this year instead.

Fall in the dining room

Since I don’t decorate the table so much, I like to add some pumpkiny goodness to the top of my hutch instead…did I mention how much I love little pumpkins?

Dining Room Decor

I just love the feel in here…not too overdone, just right, I think.

Kitchen Fall Tour

Now, onto the kitchen!  I took out some of the lime green items, and added some pops of orange.  I spray painted a ceramic bird, added some of my Grandma’s dishes, and more mini pumpkins to add a little bit of Fall in here.

Pumpkin Decorating in the Kitchen

This is my favorite pumpkin so far this year…I mean mix pumpkins and aqua together, and what do you get?  One happy Jessica!

Fall Tour Kitchen

I just love the way it all came together…whose ready for pumpkin pie?

Fall Breakfast Nook

This is my favorite spot in the whole house…my breakfast nook.  It’s forever changing to suit the needs of our family, but I think it will be staying like this for quite a while.  It’s my favorite place to work, think, eat, and just hang.  I love the way the light shines in this little area, and the cozy feeling I get when I’m having my coffee here in the morning and working on my posts!

And since I love candlesticks, but don’t really love candles (weird, I know!), I like to add little pumpkins to the top of them instead.  This year I found these pumpkins with perfect twisty stems.  Aren’t they to die for?

Fall Patio Decor

While my breakfast nook is my favorite place inside my home, my patio is my favorite place on the planet!   It is perfectly anchored by a Bradford Pear tree that was teeny tiny when we moved in.  It has grown with our family, and gives us the perfect space for s’mores making and hanging with friends and family.

And now that it’s getting cool here in KY, it’s the perfect time for a fire!

Time to turn our little lights on, light the fire, and enjoy the evening.

Thank you so much for stopping by our little home…I hope you will come back and visit often!

    Your home is so bright and cheerful. Love the orange and aqua together for fall. You’re making me want to pull the doors off my cabinets and paint the inside a bright cheerful color! Great job on the tour!

    What a sweet house you have Jessica. I love that you said your home was “well loved and quite broken in”. That’s just what a home should be. I think your home looks HAPPY! The aqua, white and orange are a fabulous combo. You cinderella pumpkin looks so at home sitting on top of you Southern Living cookbook collection!
    Thanks for letting us visit your home filled with aqua, white, pumpkins and love! Blessings to you today!

    My sweet friend, I am heading out the door right now. I should be there by dark and then we can sit around the fire all night and have s’mores on that gorgeous patio. :) Your house is the perfect color theme for adding orange pumpkins. I just LOVE the pops of orange with the aqua. Perfect combination. I love your chalkboard over your mantel. I have a few large mirrors I need to do that too. Thanks so much for joining in the All Things Home Fall Tour. Luv’ ya! xxoo

    Jessica, everything looks smashing! I love the way you’ve added pumpkins here, there, and everywhere. I’m crushing on aqua and orange this fall, too, although you DEFINITELY have me beat in the aqua department. But honestly, doesn’t it work so well alongside the traditional fall colors?

    Thank you so much for the tour!

    Jessica, I love the touches of orange in your gorgeous aqua kitchen! And I would be in heaven sitting in your outdoor space by the fire. We keep intending to make a fire pit and hopefully this fall will be the time we do it! Loved every bit of your tour!

    Hi Jessica! I love your fall decor. The orange looks great in your kitchen!!! Also, I love those glass candlesticks, and was reminded of some I saw & loved at World Market. I might have to go back hunting for those! The little pumpkins look so sweet on top! (What? You don’t like candles??? Just kidding. ;D) Thanks for your decorating inspiration! ~Sally @DrinkingFromMySaucer

    Great tour, I love all of your pumpkin loveliness. It really pops in your kitchen with the background of your pretty cabinets. Take a peek at Cloches and Lavender I would love for to become a follower

    Your home looks so lovely done up for fall Jessica- all the blue with the orange! I love that colour combo right now and used it a lot in our house too – who says that blue isn’t a fall colour! Think of the clear blue sky on that perfect crisp autumn afternoon (unfortunately ours have been full of gray rain clouds so far this fall… but there is still hope!).
