See Our Latest Delightful and Simple Fall Home Tour Photos

This year I was craving a little more simplicity in our fall decor. So, for our fall home tour, I kept things really quite simple and neutral. 


Each season I have the pleasure of hosting the Canadian Bloggers Home Tour with my friend Christina, from The DIY Mommy. And of course, this season is no different, as we share our fall home tour photos with you.

To be honest, the weather here has not made it at all conducive to fall decorating just yet. Up until a few days ago it was rather hot and humid, actually. But then, over the weekend, the temperature dropped significantly and the humidity all but disappeared. 

But, even with the more fall-ish temperatures, I was not up for an ‘over-the-top’ style of decorating this season. 

I just wanted simple.

A hint of autumn, if you will. 

And no bright colors, which is fairly normal around here. Sure, every once in awhile I’ll go all orange crazy in the fall. But not this year.

To keep that neutral sort of idea front of mind, I pulled out my fall totes. Currently, I have five of them. I had a couple more, but last week we (thankfully my girls helped me) did a huge purge of my decor stash and eliminated two entire fall totes. (My Christmas totes count, on the other hand, is still in the double digits. But that’s something to deal with another day.)

Anyway, like I said, I pulled out my fall totes and took a look at their contents. Yup, ninety-nine percent neutrals. Hallelujah!

Then I set about adding these simple fall touches to our main floor.

Today I’m sharing photos of the living room and kitchen, which happen to be right next to each other. Next week, I’ll share the dining room…including a fall table setting that you can copy at your house too!

I added a pumpkin here, a wheat sheaf there. 

And another pumpkin. And maybe another. But all in subdued shades of white.

Even our little doggie, Jackson, goes with the neutral decor!

Of course, this is our LIVING room. We really use this space. So, it has to remain fully functional for movie nights, reading books, snuggling and all sorts of family togetherness (my favorite!).

The new book shelves (below) will eventually be chock FULL of books and nothing else. But until I collect a few more, the shelves were looking a little bare…thus the extra fall decor.

But functional can be pretty too. Just look at those dried hydrangeas! Those were all clipped off my Strawberry Hydrangea tree a few weeks ago and hung in the garage to dry until I brought them in today. I just love their oh-so-subtle touch of color.

In the end, I think I’ve added just enough decor for everyone to feel like it’s fall. But not so much that it overwhelms our space.
