Happy Fall Y’all! I’m super excited for Part II of our fall home tours for 2016! Can you see an underlying theme happening? It’s all about the blues with pops of copper and brass over here y’all!
If you are hoping on the tour from Shannon of the Burlap & Lace blog, welcome! Shannon is a dear friend and man she kills it every.single.time! I think we may be kindred spirits of blue too :) I’m SO glad you’re here and I hope you enjoy the tour…
I’m not a huge re-decorator each season, I prefer simplicity and not to spend all of my money on seasonal decor, but I do love changing out a few pillows and an excuse to add some fresh flowers (as if I need an excuse!). I’ve said it over and over this month, it’s still freakin’ hot here in NC (praying for some cooler temps this weekend) so I’m not as into to the typical fall leaf colors as usual. But you’ve probably gathered by now that I like to push the envelope a little when it comes to decorating our home. I may not be quite as much of a risk taker if I was decorating your home. As always though, my ‘test kitchen’ is being put to the test.

So this is how my living room came together: I was in The Fresh Market looking for flowers and they had two bunches of these beautiful blue hydrangeas left and I had to have them. Then and there I new the blue would continue. Next, I stumbled across these adorable copper embellished fall napkins from Target and I knew that would be my accent color. BOOM. Seriously that’s how simply it all evolved.
The navy blue and white faux fur pillows from Gordman’s and this AH-MAZING fringe throw from HomeGoods are a couple of new additions to the space. I actually found those gray tulle pom pom’s in the Halloween section of the dollar bin at Target and sewed them onto the corners of the navy pillows to add a custom DIY touch.
Oh and the flowers on my DIY coffee table are actually artificial! You can see how I made them HERE. I spy Gritsy pie too!
I jazzed up this metal basket with a little gold paint and added some logs for an easy and inexpensive fall touch. Although we don’t have a wood burning fireplace, we do have a chiminea on the deck that we use most weekends in the fall. Like I said, holding my breath for more fall in the air so we can put it to use :)
The flowers and pumpkin centerpiece from my first fall tour have already passed away so I replaced them with this fun grayish-navy glass vase and threw in a string of LED lights. It’s so pretty on our table in the evening. Almost as good as fresh flowers :)
You can see another sneak peek of the ‘green wall’, as we’re calling it, that will be revealed on the blog soon…promise!
Playing more musical pillows in the banquette dining area. The blue stripe pillows usually reside on my bed upstairs but you never know where all the pillows are going to end up. They are from Ikea and the pineapple pillow is from At Home.
And that’s a wrap on this year’s fall tours! I hope you enjoyed it and do yourself a favor and check out the rest of the talented list of bloggers and designers in the Blogger Stylin’ Home Tour lineup!
