2017 Fall Home Tour

It is defiently no surprise that I love fall.  I love everything thing about fall, the weather, the smells, the colors.  I start decorating for fall the first of September and keep it up all through Black Friday.  Here is a look at my fall decor this year.

I love pumpkins and these pumpkins are my favorite.

Mums are an easy way to add fall to your front porch and require little maintenance.

I could light a fire and stare at this fireplace all day.

A few faux pumpkins on my sofa table add to the fall decor.

I’m obsessed with this new Scentsy Pot.

A simple floral arrangement on my coffee table finishes up my living room.  I have to keep the coffee table simple because my toddler will wonder off with my decor.

I like to keep my table simple.  Orange chargers followed by my white plates just scream fall.  Adding a little plate with color on top brings all the fall colors together.

Keeping the centerpiece low helps with the conversation.

Dining Room Reveal

Dining Room Reveal

Something that I have always wanted was a dining room.  A place where my family sits and enjoys each other while we eat supper, a place where our extended families enjoy holidays and other celebrations together, a place where friends become family.  So when I finally got a dining room, I knew I had to have a big farmhouse table.

The dining room is the first thing you see when you walk into our home so I wanted to make it an inviting space for family and friends.

Dining RoomOf course, I had to add my Rae Dunn Pottery along with my pops of red through out.  At first I didn’t want a bench at my table, but I knew it would be nice for the boys to sit.  I am so glad I decided to go with the bench because it has been really handy.

Rustic Kitchen

They say the kitchen is the heart of the home and in my house they are defiently correct!  One of the big items on our list when we were looking for a new home was what did the kitchen look like.  And when I saw this kitchen I was in love.  With the tall cabinets to the huge island/bar area.  And the flow is great.

Something that was really important to me was to have a bar of some sort for my boys to sit and have breakfast when they are older.  Plus I have always wanted those bar stools.

 

Kitchen Sink

I love a clean sink!

I know some people don’t like anything on their counters, however, almost everything on my counters I use everyday in cooking so I find it easier to have them within arms reach.

I really enjoy the bookcase at the end of the island to house all of my cookbooks.

Although I did wish for a white kitchen in the new house, it is hard to find in small town Oklahoma.  All the house we looked at had the dark rustic cabinets.  And I do like how they look.

Bedroom Reveal

Hallelujah!!  I have my first room officially DONE!  With the exception of a bench for the footboard of our bed and I’m still trying to decide if I want one there or not.  In the new house I really went outside my comfort zone and went with a neutral color scheme.  But as I get older, my taste become more neutral.  I am loving the gray walls with all the gray and yellow accents.  However I still love my black furniture. 

Gray & Yellow Bedroom

In my bedroom houses all of our cherished memories.  From our wedding photo’s to our boys on our nightstands.  I wanted to keep this space more about us.  The black shelves holds my wedding bouquet, pictures of my husband and I, bibles that are our family members that are no longer with us.  I felt that the master bedroom required a more intimate and personal touch where as the rest of the house is more about my kids.

Gray & Yellow Bedroom

The number one rule in my house is always make your bed when you wake up. 

Gray & Yellow BedroomIMG_1332

I wanted to keep my nightstand free of clutter with the exception of the book I’m reading and my guys! 

Gray & Yellow Bedroom

Adding a few pops of color via the picture frames and vase help a neutral room.  The flowers give it a little feminine touch without going to girly.

Gray & Yellow Bedroom

Once again, my husbands nightstand is free from clutter.

Hello everyone in blog land.  I wanted to write a post telling a little about me.  I am a boy mom of two small boys (three and one) and we just moved into our forever home (well until we decide to build our dream home, but not really sure about the time line on that).  Over the next few months and into years, I will be sharing with you my house room by room as we get them fixed up, painted and decorated.  Also I will be sharing my organization and how I stay organized with two small children. I will be also sharing Friday Favorites, cleaning tips, and tride and true organizational tips.

A little about me.  I am an Oklahoman thru and thru.  I was born and raised here and honestly I couldn’t see me living any where else than Oklahoma.  My husband, boys and I just moved to a new town and life gets crazy.  I am a lover of farmhouse and rustic decor.  I also love antique pieces as well as my treasured family heirlooms.
