Simple Fall Decor Tour to See Our Grateful Home
Welcome to our home! Come on in to see our fall decor tour, gather inspiration for your own home this season, with a theme of gratefulness.
Welcome to our fall home! Wouldn’t it be so fun if we could gather around the table with pumpkin muffins and sip hot apple cider or pumpkin spice lattes together?
But since that isn’t possible, I hope you’ll come on in and enjoy a tour of our home. It is feeling a little more cozy as I add things to each room and the warmth of some fall colors helps it feel festive for the season…even while the green palm trees sway outside!
“And let there be for every pulse a Thanksgiving and for every breath a song.”

I am excited to be joining some blogging friends this week to share our home tours. I love that each one is so different and unique, yet all help us feel all the good vibes of fall! If you’re hopping over from Leen at Sand Dollar Lane, welcome! I am so glad you are here!
If you are a subscriber, welcome back! I hope you’ll hop on through the blogs and gather lots of inspiration today!
So, grab your favorite fall drink and come on in! Let’s pretend that you just pulled in my drive and I’m waiting for you on the front porch!
Fall Decor Tour: Entryway
Cubbies. Little pumpkins. Fall scarf. Leaf garland.
Our entryway is small but so fun to decorate! I added a few adorable concrete pumpkins from @something.gray. You can also see how I did a fun cement pumpkin DIY (hyperlink to diy post) and make your own!
I love the texture and interest that my vintage sheet music leaf garland, also from @something.gray, adds to the space. I added some dried gourds, a fall scarf, and vintage books in brown tones to add touches of fall color.
The dried branches are free decor from my yard. I love the pretty, soft green that these oak leaves become and how they give the feeling of early fall.
I wanted the overall look in the entryway to be simple, yet welcoming. I used fall texture, color, and layers of pieces with patina to add to the casual feeling of this space.
Don’t be afraid to use large pieces in small spaces. Do invest in pieces that make a great backdrop for your decor. With this cubby, I can quickly and easily switch small items to give it a brand new look!
Fall Decor Tour: Music Room
Dried branches. Layered neutral pieces. Pops of fall color.
This long apothecary in the music room is one of my very favorite places to decorate. The apothecary itself is a vintage piece and the mirror above is the door frame of an 1890’s farmhouse that we had turned into a huge mirror. You can see how we turned these vintage sconces into functioning lights here.
Investing in pieces that create a great backdrop for decorating, no matter the season, is something I always try to do in our home!
I added some favorite vintage pieces to this space, including books, architectural salvage, small apothecary drawers, and a mirror and sign. I love mixing the old and new and these marble candlesticks work beautifully with my vintage decor. Plus, they are super budget-friendly too!
To add a statement fall color to this room, I used some inexpensive pillow covers. For under $7 each, they are the perfect way to add some fall color and a cozy texture. Simply mix them with your existing neutral pillows and immediately transform your space!
Fall Decor Tour: Kitchen
Pumpkins. Seasonal produce. Fall wreath.
While I love to add a touch of fall or seasonal decor to every room in our home, the kitchen is one space where I take it easy and enjoy the most simple additions.
In any room, you can use just a few simple things to make a seasonal statement. While I love to go all out in some spaces, I can’t imagine the amount of storage, not to mention budget, to totally transform each room, each season.
Our kitchen is a busy, busy place! For seasonal decor, it’s a room where I don’t spend much money and focus on just a couple of statement items.
I love hanging a wreath on our oven hood. It adds instant fall color to the room and helps it tie in with the family room on one side and the dining room on the other side. I’ve had this one for awhile but I’ll link some other pretty ones for you here and here!
In high traffic areas, keep decor simple and functional. In my kitchen, two simple additions transformed it into a warm, fall kitchen without taking up counter space or interfering with the function in any way.
I like keeping a scale on my kitchen island because it feels like a natural spot for a scale to go! Plus, it gives me a great spot to quickly and easily switch a simple, seasonal element. For fall, I added a pretty fresh pumpkin. You can find a great faux one HERE too.
One last kitchen “must have” is a good candle! This is my favorite one for the fall season! If you add nothing else, add a great fall candle to any room to get all the good, fall vibes!
Fall Decor Tour: Family Room
Neutral layers. Woven texture. Worn patinas.
I will probably switch up this gallery wall and mantel decor one more time before the end of fall, but I have loved this light, neutral approach to fall decor this year.
I used vintage signs and architectural salvage as the statement pieces for my gallery wall. You can get all the details of my fall gallery wall here, as well as some simple tips for creating your own gallery wall!
To break up the hard textures of the signs and salvage, I added some woven wall baskets from Farmhouse Frocks. I filled them with some faux greenery and dried gourds. I love how they soften each end of the gallery wall, as well as adding lots of great texture.
Since I wanted the focal point to be this beautiful architectural piece and vintage signs, I kept my mantel styling simple. I added some vintage crocks and stoneware, a small salvage piece, vintage books, and brass candlesticks.
Even though it’s fall, I left this sweet pothos plant for a touch of green. I will probably move that when I style my mantel for late fall, though!
You can find my favorite fall mantel ideas on this post!
While some mantel stylings lend themselves to a symmetrical design, such as a sign in the middle and matching candlesticks or lanterns on each side (nothing wrong with that!), I had fun playing around with a more asymmetrical design. By using a mixture of neutral items, I was able to get the curated, vintage look that I was going for!
There is something about worn patina that lends itself to the fall season so well. Maybe it’s the color, but I also think the worn texture gives an extra cozy feeling too!
For pillows in this space, I kept all my neutral pillows and added just two seasonal ones. I love the very subtle fall color and texture of this one. It gave just that touch of color I wanted to add to an otherwise neutral space.
I also added this pumpkin pillow for a fun touch! My kids love it and I’ll admit, it’s been tossed around the house a few times too! With a super active seven-year-old boy and a daughter that loves volleyball…can we even be surprised?!
Don’t be afraid to play around with symmetrical and asymmetrical design. In this space, I created some symmetry with matching wall baskets. For asymmetry, I purposely hung two signs on one side and a mixture of vintage art and textile on the other side. By not making the match, exactly, I achieved a more curated look.
Everything doesn’t have to match! You can achieve a beautiful look by collecting pieces you love over time and mixing them together. I generally choose mostly neutral items, which allows me to use them season after season, in a lot of different ways!
I hope you’ve felt welcomed into our home today and that you leave feeling inspired to create that fall feeling of gratefulness in your own home! To me, fall decor is all about creating a feeling…warm, inviting, and cozy!
“It’s up to us to choose contentment and thankfulness now – and to stop imagining that we have to have everything perfect before we’ll be happy.”
