Welcome to Our "Fall-ized" Home

Welcome to our "Fall-ized" home.  I added sprigs of bittersweet to a simple wreath that always hangs on our door.  The deep red-orange color of these berries has really attracted me this season, so I've used it several places in our home to create a bright pop of color against our mostly neutral palette.

The second pop of orange is the linen pillow I made for the sofa.

I've recently made a couple of new purchases for this room from a Barbara Cosgrove sample sale.  Barbara is from Kansas City and her daughter happens to be one our neighbors. 

I purchased this fabulously simple and elegant brass table.  I won't tell you what a steal-of-a-deal it was... but let's just say I couldn't have purchased a knockoff from Target any cheaper.

My second purchase was this pair of lamps.  Barbara helped me select these based on a photo I showed her of my living room.  I love the larger scale - my old ones look ity-bity in comparison.  She said the most common mistake is using shades that are too small.

I love a cozy sofa full of pillows.

I made this pillow with a half yard of "pumpkin" linen I purchased from Nell Hills.

These are a fun new addition to the store for for Halloween.

Here are some of the pumpkins Emma picked last weekend.  We have quite the collection of small pumpkins - she loved that she could carry them all by herself.  Isn't that stem fabulous?

My third purchase from the sale - I'm obsessed with this pair of artichoke lamps. 

I put them on the mantle for now, but I'd love to have them on a console table at some point. 

Here is a view of the room coming back from the dining room.

And the room complete with a peek at Emma's shopping cart in the corner and her lamb chair.

The dining room sporting another pop of the deep orange.

 Our boots.

Just outside the dining room on the side porch - I've moved my herbs from the garden to make them more easily accessible.

I love this framed print of our wedding day - Mike had it done (picked it out all by himself) for our first anniversary.

The view upon entering our bedroom.

Another orange linen pillow - this one embroidered with our monogram.

Thanks for taking my little tour - Happy Fall decorating!


  1. I love the subtle pop of orange, soft and not blaring! Everything looks so pretty!

  2. I love what you have done for fall. It's my favorite time of year. Also, I got my Match pewter it! Keep up the good work on your site.

  3. I love the way your home can be spiced up with simple color pops for every season because of the tones you have picked. Amazing.

  4. Fun!! You got some great lamps! I adore the artichokes.

  5. I love the new additions and the room looks perfect for fall!

  6. I want to thank you for your lovely/fun/happy/inspiring posts. I enjoy reading your blog and congratulate you on your beautiful website. It is a lot of work behind the scenes and your finished product is quality. Thank you for sharing your home today, it is awesome! Tina

  7. Love your home. The new lamps and the pop or orange with the pillows look wonderful. Thanks for sharing with us.

  8. Love the fall updates!! Where did you find that fantastic tray for your boots by the door? I've been looking for something similar to contain the chaos by our back door.

  9. The house looks lovely. Love the tray for the boots- we have the same one. Gotta love Target!

  10. Lovely. I'm obsessed with the artichoke lamps. If you sold them in your store, I'd snatch up a pair in a heartbeat! Hint... hint...

  11. You have great style, Jenny. It's simple and understated which I love. I have two questions...1. Have you shared your paint colors? I'd love to know them. 2. In your bedroom, is that the Pottery Barn pic stitch quilt? If so, did you get ivory or white? Thanks

  12. Very nice~!
    May I ask where you purchased the large 'tray' (for lack of a better word) that your boots are on? I'm looking for something like that for our entryway as well.


  13. Love your bedding. Where is it from?

  14. Jenny, I agree with Tina above. Your site is so enjoyable and I know it is a lot of work behind the scenes. Thank you so much for sharing with everyone. For those asking about the boot tray, I have been wanting one since Martha Stewart had one in her old catalog years ago (that I never jummped on!) I just saw two options in Ballard Design the other day but am looking for something more simple. Did someone say they sell something similar to Jenny's at Target?

    1. FYI I just purchased a boot tray that looks identical at Target last week, and they have it online as well! It is by Smith & Hawken and an absolute steal at around $20, I'm so happy with it.

  15. What i wouldn't give for one of those artichoke lamps for my kitchen!

  16. Your home is so lovely and inviting! Please share where you purchased your lamps them.

  17. Your home is so cozy! Love. Do you have any rec's for finding interesting picture frames? You seem to have a diverse collection!
