I hope you are having a day as amazing as you are.

And you have coffee.

Because today?

I have some FALL FOR YOU.

Rooms and pumpkins and hay and straw and ideas and clever fall decor and so much fall I had to add extra pictures.

Today is the day for a little fall tour.

I’m so excited to be participating in this amazing fall tour hosted by Linda from It All Started With Paint.

Here’s my fall tour for this year and 21 budget fall decorating ideas for your home.

1. Fill a basket with pumpkins.

I know, right?

Simple and easy.

You can find my list of favorite faux pumpkins for this year here.

2. Make a wood pumpkin from twigs in the yard.

3. Cover the edge of a hutch or bookcase with paper leaves. I just attached them with double-sided tape and crinkled the edges for a more realistic effect.

4. Make acorns from felted sweaters and stitch the top.

5. Create an acorn garland with felted bottoms and mini acorn tops.

6. Create a centerpiece with potted plants and blue and white pumpkins.

7. DIY blue and white pumpkins with scrapbook leaves.

8. Change up the colors of fall. Think outside the box and layer in blue and white or turquoise or hot pink.

9. Tuck a mini pumpkin into a display like this blue and white fabric pumpkin.

10. Fill a glass vase with leaves from the yard.

11. Make a pumpkin pillow from a placemat.

12. Fill a dough bowl with pumpkins. This is the perfect idea for all those pumpkins that you have in a tub that you have no idea what to do with.

13. Create a fall mantel with simple eucalyptus leaves and hay and candles.

14. Battery-operated candles with a timer are a great option for a fall mantel.

15. Tie bundles of hay with jute twine.

16. Hand-stitch a thrift store tray for fall.

17. Layer in white dishes and velvet and straw pumpkins.

18. Fill a low basket on your kitchen island with pumpkins. You can add in faux stems, too. Here are some of my favorite faux stems for this fall.

19. Drape a fall dish towel over the edge of a kitchen chair.

20. Tuck fall cards into the edge of a chalkboard or frame.

21. Add a basket full of wood slices to an interior door.

And then?

Step outside and celebrate.

The season is changing. Hot chocolate and cinnamon cookies and sweaters and crisp cool days are just around the corner.

Here’s to all the fall that is here and is yet to come. ­čÖé

      Yes!! I'm painting Naval in my bedroom as we speak! My son chose it for his room, and I was nervous until I saw it here. Then, I completely fell in love! It's just gorgeous, isn't it?


    Karianne! I almost texted you last night. Now I can't remember why I wanted to textyou! Ha! mom brain. You taught me two things and seriously cannot remember. I just wanted to share. Okay, that porch! I started my porch over the weekend and we found mama bear and 2 cubs (the cubs playing with one of my pumpkins they took from the porch). It was precious. It was 2am and the only reason we heard them was our Bernese Mountain dog went crazy! they were playing soccer with the pumpkin! love you! laura

    Hello! I've recently discovered your beautiful blog and having such a great time browsing your lovely home and projects! Love your style and already taken away some great food for thought!! I do have a question I feel sure you could answer! After my husband's g'parents passed, we and his 2 brothers inherited their 1940s river cottage in the north Ga smokey mountains! We've begun the remodel of this small, 3 bd 2 bath, now craftsman style exterior and vintage cottage with a rustic touch (because we have several small boys to consider) Therefore, we will likely settle on a leather sleeper sofa! ­čĄöBecause of sooo many other decisions needing to be made, and because this home will be shared by our 3 families, I have waited until the last moment to consider interior paint! Outside is done and turned out fabulous in a historic Downing stone and SW shoji white exterior. Inside is small rooms with 8 foot ceilings (lower in kitchen­čśą) I've chosen SW alabaster white, to keep it bright, in the kitchen, and laundry room and I love this color...but here's my question....being and older home and styling with vintage farmhouse finds, what paint "finishes" should I use here?? Ceiling, cabinets, walls and trim?? Keeping in mind, because we had do redo everything from wiring, siding, roofing and plumbing ...the sheetrock walls, remain, and they are very much imperfect­čśó so far this is the only color I've settled on! Thnk you sooo much for your help...we're painting this week!! Ahhh­čśź
