Welcome to Our DIY House on this fine Fall day. Why don’t you come in and I’ll make you a vanilla latte? Or… wait! You simply must take a walk with us outside first. It’s just too gorgeous out here in the autumn. We fell in love with our country acreage exactly 9 years ago this week when all of the leaves were gold and red.
We’ve just given our porch a little makeover this summer. It’s been so lovely to be able to sit out here during the late summer evenings, and we’re still enjoying the porch this Fall.
You just have to cuddle up with a throw now when the evenings get chilly.
It’s so relaxing just sitting outside and taking in all of the Fall colours around here.
That’s why I kept our interior Fall decor quite simple and woodland-inspired. Because… how can I compete with THIS?
Well, come on in. I kept our front door decor simple too. I couldn’t bear to throw away our summer planters just yet.
I think a couple of pumpkins and white mums do the trick!
Once inside, you’ll find some nature-inspired decorations on our shoe cabinet.
The pine cones are some that my parents picked up on their travels, and the dried hydrangeas are from our yard.
Come into the living room! You’ll see that my handy, loving hubby mounted our TV to the wall this summer and it’s made such a difference.
Our TV gallery wall looks so much sleeker now. (Baby B picked out this tiny fox.)
I love to keep our seasonal decor light and happy and kid friendly. It’s so fun to have decorations that my girls love too!
Our new mantel clock makes our living room feel so rustic and homey.
I’ve loaded the couch with pillows as per usual. The furry one is from Urban Barn, the mossy green one is from Homesense and the pom-pom pillow is one I altered from Fabricland.
Fall makes me want to pile on the fuzzy throws and pillows!
Tucked in a corner is my turquoise Ikea cart with some fun things on top like this faux pumpkin under glass.
On the coffee table are more dried hydrangeas from the garden and a faux antler from Urban Barn.
Moving through to the kitchen, not much changes in here for the seasons, but I’ve made it a little cozier with throws and a Fall table setting.
My daughters and I found these woodland plates at Urban Barn and we had to take them home!
I made the napkins out of drop cloth I hemmed, and then I sewed on some pom-pom trim.
The centerpiece is some faux pumpkins, pine cones and candles placed inside my barnwood box.
The rest of the kitchen has really simple Fall splashes through faux greenery and pumpkins.
Now, if you walk around the corner you’ll discover my secret little coffee nook.
Here’s where I can make you a latte and we can share this delicious caramel apple my neighbor made for me!
Finally, we can sit with our coffees and chat in the “adultiest” room of the house – the front sitting room.
A cozy plaid throw and some pillows make this room feel cozy for autumn, and we collected twigs from the front yard for the coffee table.
More clippings from the yard grace the keyboard, and I’m loving the look of this round mirror layered over this vintage window.
Thanks so much for coming to visit us today on this gorgeous Fall day!
