Fall Home Tour 2015

Check out all of these fall and Halloween decor ideas! There are 16 blogs that are showing off how they decorate their homes this time of year in the #falloweenhometourhop! http://www.whatroseknows.com Well hello there! Welcome to my full fall home tour! Come on in and have a look at my nature inspired neutral fall decor. Fall is usually full of bright and vibrant colors but this year, those colors will only be found on the outside of our home. We have only lived here in Minnesota for the past 6 months and three of those months were spent living in an apartment while our house was built, so we have only been in our new house a very short time! Since we have been living here, I realize that I feel very calm, relaxed, and at peace. The decor in our home is a reflection of that. Neutral colors can be very soothing and welcoming making a space warm and inviting.

There are 16 blogs that are showing off how they decorate their homes this time of year in the #falloweenhometourhop! http://www.whatroseknows.com We'll start out at the entryway. I recently found this gorgeous (and very full) wreath at an event at the fairgrounds and it felt like the deal of the century at only $40! The table you see was all white up until a few days ago. I got real tired of looking at it so I put a coat of glaze over the top. I'm not in love with it but that's ok because it's there temporarily until I find the right bench to go in its place.

You can see more of the shelf and the goodies on it in my Mini Fall Home Decor Tour post.

This reclaimed barn beam and pipe shelf was envisioned by yours truly, and built by my handsome handy husband. The reclaimed heavy beams make it a very unique piece and it's become the show stopper in our home! Check out all of these fall and Halloween decor ideas! There are 16 blogs that are showing off how they decorate their homes this time of year in the #falloweenhometourhop! http://www.whatroseknows.com I added touches of fall to this shelf by changing out the candlesticks from plain ones to ears of corn candlesticks. I also added fresh fall flowers, a mercury glass pumpkin, burlap pumpkins from The Spot at Target, and small pumpkins scattered about.Check out all of these fall and Halloween decor ideas! There are 16 blogs that are showing off how they decorate their homes this time of year in the #falloweenhometourhop! http://www.whatroseknows.com These small pumpkins were originally picks. I bought them with the intent of making a wreath but that didn't work out so instead I cut off the pick part and painted the stems with an antique copper paint.

There are 16 blogs that are showing off how they decorate their homes this time of year in the #falloweenhometourhop! http://www.whatroseknows.com I rarely use burlap in my decor anymore but these burlap pumpkins from Target were too nice to pass up. The colors work really well on the shelf - plus you can't go wrong for just $3!Check out all of these fall and Halloween decor ideas! There are 16 blogs that are showing off how they decorate their homes this time of year in the #falloweenhometourhop! http://www.whatroseknows.com Welcome to my living room! I kept things very neutral in this room and added touches of fall with the rustic pumpkins (click that link to see how I made them) on the bottom shelf of the TV stand, a neutral fall vignette (click that link to see how affordable that vignette was) on the coffee table, and my new pumpkin pillow. 

The TV stand is also something envisioned by myself and created by my handy handsome husband. We dug through piles and piles of reclaimed wood in Sparta, WI to find this gorgeous wood. I much prefer pipe furniture with heavier boards rather than the thin boards.

Check out all of these fall and Halloween decor ideas! There are 16 blogs that are showing off how they decorate their homes this time of year in the #falloweenhometourhop! http://www.whatroseknows.com Just last week I posted my tip on how to score cheap throw pillows for under $12 so if there is a throw pillow you just gotta have, it's more affordable. A few days ago I did come across a throw pillow that I just had to have and since most of the other pillows on our sofas cost under $12, I didn't feel too guilty for spending a bit more on a seasonal throw pillow. The colors in this pumpkin pillow reminded me of the rusty patina of the windmill tail hanging on the wall, so I brought the pumpkin pillow home with me. And my oh my how the colors of the pillow and windmill tail harmonize with each other! 

Check out all of these fall and Halloween decor ideas! There are 16 blogs that are showing off how they decorate their homes this time of year in the #falloweenhometourhop! http://www.whatroseknows.com I have a rule in place when it comes to the decor I bring into my home; I need things to make sense. I don't decorate with things just because they are trendy at the moment or popular because of a TV show. For instance, cotton stems. Cotton does not grow here in the midwest so even though it looks great when incorporated into decor, I follow my own rule and I do not use it simply because it does not make sense. Instead, I use pussy willow branches as you can see in the glass wine jug in the corner. Those make sense to where I live. I know my rule probably sounds strange to some of you, but it's just something I find important. :)

There are 16 blogs that are showing off how they decorate their homes this time of year in the #falloweenhometourhop! http://www.whatroseknows.com Located just past the living room is the kitchen and this is probably the biggest change yet. You may have already seen the Kitchen Tour - A Black and White Blank Canvas post that I shared last month and will notice how just a bit of the muted color that I added on the island and table really warmed up the space.  

Check out all of these fall and Halloween decor ideas! There are 16 blogs that are showing off how they decorate their homes this time of year in the #falloweenhometourhop! http://www.whatroseknows.com The Amishmade barn board farmhouse table we have is huge so I used some pretty large items for the centerpiece. I picked up the fresh flowers from the Rochester, MN farmers market over the weekend and had a hard time finding a large enough vase to put the flowers in. The mini milk can fit them perfectly but I was not going to take a chance putting water right in the faux milk can so I got a little creative and put the largest mason jar I had into the milk can, filled it with water, and then added the flower bouquet to the mason jar. Problem solved! 

Those antique pumpkins are real believe it or not! My family is in the habit of eating their meals at the island so those pumpkins will probably stay there until Thanksgiving dinner when we will be having family from Wisconsin over.

I kept things on the simple side because we use our kitchen island for our main workspace and eating area in the kitchen. 

Check out all of these fall and Halloween decor ideas! There are 16 blogs that are showing off how they decorate their homes this time of year in the #falloweenhometourhop! http://www.whatroseknows.com Using the kitchen island for our main workspace has allowed me to use the counter space for decor. I love the contrast of the gold in the pumpkin and the leaf against the black and white of the counters, backsplash and fridge.

I don't like a lot of clutter on my counters and by keeping everything in the same color scheme, even though there are quite a few things in this space, it appears less cluttered (to me at least).
