Welcome to a Hello Fall Home Tour featuring the homes of 7 talented home decor bloggers.
Hey friends! Welcome to the Hello Fall Home Tour! I was honored to take part in this tour, featured 6 other very talented home bloggers, and I couldn’t be more honored to be included amongst so many uniquely talented women. If you are stopping by from First Day Of Home’s beautiful Fall Tour, welcome, I am so happy you are here!
For those of you who are new to my blog, let me tell you a little about myself. My family relocated from West Virginia to a suburb of Austin, Texas called Round Rock, in July of 2019. We bought a home in a cute little neighborhood, and we named it our yellow prairie house. We have been busy making updates to our new home as our budget has allowed, and trying to pay cash for pretty much everything. I love a gathered, collected over time look, and I am so excited to share my first Fall home tour in this house!
I have lots of photos to share with you today, so I hope you will enjoy taking a little tour of our open concept home today. As you enter our home we have a small little entry that opens directly into our front room. This is the view you see, with the stairs directly across from our front door. I have big plans to update these railings one day!
This is the view looking back towards the front door from the stairs. I have painted all of the doors except for one in our downstairs this same color black, called Plum Martini, by Benjamin Moore. I am in love with the look of black doors, and I don’t regret it for one second! We don’t have a large entry, so I added a shelf to the left of the front door that has hooks to hang jackets and bags. In the summertime you might find beach towels hanging here too. But of course, I styled them pretty for you today.

These wingback chairs are a recent purchase that I saved up for for several months, because I just could not get them out of my head when I saw them at Kirkland’s. And they are exactly what I pictured for this space. I am super happy with these chairs and the fabric is perfectly casual and textured. This room is still a work in progress, but the main pieces that were chosen just for this space are the chairs and the rug. The rest will probably change as we find different pieces we like. I recently painted the bookshelf you see here in a color I love called Mossy Bank by Behr, which just so happens to great with Fall decor.
I added Fall touches to this space with some fall florals in golds, and blush colors, with lots of natural elements to bring in some texture, and of course, pumpkins! It’s also easy to cozy up any space by throwing a comfy throw over a chair or sofa. I love this one with the pom-poms, its like instant cozy vibes!
Here you can see some of the natural elements I added, with the hanging basket, the grapevine wreath, and the brooms hanging. You will find some of these same colors of gold , greens and blush in some of my other florals around the house.
I love this slate tiered tray that I styled for Fall. You can catch a glimpse in the background of some vintage window I hung on the wall, there’s one more to the left out of the shot. And I found this little vintage metal ladder out junking one day. I love the aged green patina on it.
Three of the items you see here on top of my bookshelf are thrifted finds. I love to find framed art at thrift stores that I can change out for the seasons. I picked this particular one up back in West Virginia and it was hand painted by an artist who signed it. I don’t now exactly who painted it, but the last name is a familiar name where I’m from.
I found a couple of little vintage brooms at an antique store in Austin and I had to get them! I think they are perfect for fall decor just sitting on a shelf or table. They add an element of natural and texture.
This next photo is a sneak peek into our most recent purchase. We picked up a dining table and chairs from Facebook Marketplace last week, and we have been busy stripping the top down to the natural wood and painting the base. I’m not sharing a full photo of it here just yet, but you can see some of the delicious natural wood peeking out below this collection of amber bottles. I picked up this cute plaid table runner at Hobby Lobby that ties in perfectly with my Fall theme, so I couldn’t help styling it just a bit for Fall!
Our dining area is right next to the front room. It is really kind of one large room. so you pass by this dining table as you enter the kitchen and living room. I have been loving amber bottles, especially for Fall, for the past few years now, and I still am loving the look of them!
This is the first time I have shared a tour of our living room. We do have plans to eventually make some changes in this room. Shiplap might be in order on that gallery wall one day. And I plan to paint all of the walls down here eventually as well. Below, you will see our kitchen and breakfast room, and those walls are already painted. I plan to do the same color throughout the downstairs, maybe with a couple of shiplap walls or something like that.
I didn’t change up much in this space for all except for adding a few pumpkins, a few new throw pillows, some cozy throws, and fall branches in a vase on the coffee table.
As you can probably tell, we did two matching sofas with a coffee table in the middle in the living room. It is not a huge space, and with the way it backs up to the kitchen island, this is the best furniture arrangement for the space, and gives us the most seating.
The gallery wall that surrounds the TV is made up of art that has been collected over time. Some are thrifted pieces, some are new. One of the reason I haven’t shared this room much is because I had never gotten my pillow game on point with these new sofas.
I finally feel like I have remedied that situation, and I am loving the combination of pillows I have on the sofa for fall. Actually some of them will stay all year around, and a few will get changed out for the seasons.
I think I was stumped by the fact that the sofas mirror each other, and I couldn’t decide if they should match exactly or not. I finally decided to match them exactly with the exception of one differing pillow on each sofa. I found the perfect faux leather pillow covers on Amazon. And then I found three different pillow covers at Ikea that I felt mixed and matched well with the colors in the gallery wall, but were yet mostly neutral.
The art you see hanging on the bottom left of my gallery wall is my favorite piece of art I have eve thrifted. It was found at my local Mission in WV and I paid $5 for it. I have had it for several years, and it still inspires me every time I look at it. They say to buy the things you love, and I definitely love everything about this piece. It is a Van Gogh print titled Bowl with Zinnias and other flowers.
Of course, our Pug, Tyson Chicken Nugget, had to get in on my photo shoot. You know he’s not going to allow me to photograph a space without him being in at least one shot! Ha!
This view from our living room into our breakfast room gives you a look at the lighter color I plan to paint all of our downstairs wall. It is called Sentimental Beige by Behr. It really lightens up the space, and I cant wait for the rest of our downstairs to feel this light and airy!
Our kitchen was our first big renovation, and really our only big renovation so far in this house. We have made other updates, and mostly been spending our budget to purchase furniture, but we sprang for a large renovation of our kitchen when we moved in, and it was worth it, because we enjoy this kitchen immensely! You can read all about our kitchen makeover here.
I love the simplicity of the wheat in this white metal vase on the kitchen island. The basket hanging over our pantry was a find from a trip we made to Magnolia Market over the winter. I love that we live near Waco! Other than a few small pumpkins, the wheat is the only thing I added in the kitchen for Fall.
Our breakfast room is one of my favorite spaces. I like to decorate this room for the different seasons. And the black door in this room is just my absolute fave! I made the little wreath I have hanging on the door.
I found these pretty branches at Hobby Lobby, and they are so much prettier in person than I was able to catch on camera. They are more of a gold in person, and they look so realistic. I love the way they look on my buffet for Fall.
I decided to use a few of the extra Fall pillows I had not used in my Fall decor in the house in my sun room. Just a few pillows, a colorful afghan, and our sunroom is feeling pretty for Fall too.
More black doors that I adore out here in the sunroom, and I added another wreath that I made a couple of years ago to the back door. It really did take me just a few minutes to give this space a Fall vibe.
