Fall Home Tour - 2015

If you've been around my blog for a while, you know I love to decorate for the changing in, loooove to do it.  In fact, some of my favorite posts (ever) were when I was a part of the Blogger Stylin' Home Tours.  They always gave me an excuse to play with new color schemes and freshen up the view.

I may not be a part of the BSHT this year, but that doesn't mean I've stopped decorating as each new season came along.  In April and May, I started a "before and after" series showing the progress we've made in our humble home, and if you checked out those posts, it's clear this spring and summer were all about the light and bright.  Aqua, coral, citron...oh my!

To simplify my seasonal swaps, I keep a consistent base all year round (blues, gray, B&W, mixed metallics) and swap out different shades and hues to breathe new life into our home.  This makes the process inexpensive and enjoyable.

Last fall, bright, almost neon, colors were my inspiration.  It was fun, vibrant and warm.  This year, I found myself drawn to all-things-purple...more specifically aubergine, plum and orchid.  (Fun fact, growing up...purple was my favorite color before turquoise stole my heart.)  These colors, as well as a few pops of mustard, really help to warm up the cool blues throughout our home.

Prior year decor, a few Michael's pumpkins and pinecones, spray paint, Behr paint samples, fabric and help from momma all made our home fall-ready this year.  I'm a big fan, and even hubby commented that it might be his favorite "look" yet!

Here's a million and one pictures...I hope you enjoy! :)

So...are you guys lovers of swapping out decor seasonally?  Or does #nobodygottimeforthat...believe me, I'd totally understand.

And in case you want to check out my other Blogger Stylin' Home Tour posts:

  8. Sorry, new to this commenting thing, forgot to tell it to notify me. So here's my questions again:

    Hi Gabbi - I just came across your page on pinterest and I am fascinated. We are currently in the process of buying a small ranch home and updating it as well. I'm curious, what are the dimensions of your home? I am trying to imagine what our home might look like and see if we might have as much space as your pictures show

    1. No worries! :) I finally got around to measuring the dimensions of our house and it's 32-33 ft deep and 52-53 ft wide. I hope that helps! Good luck with your new home!
