Fall House Tour of Our Home

We are being treated with the most gorgeous autumn weather this week.  In fact, I've been waiting for a gloomier day to take outside photos to get that more muted, shadowy look I love during fall.  We've had nothing but the bluest skies with the brightest foliage we've seen in years - I guess it'll have to do ; )

Last week I took out the overgrown pansies (though they still looked beautiful with all of the wet and sunny weather) and replaced them with all of the gourds and pumpkins we've accumulated during the fall.  They were taking over the inside of our house!  We're hosting Thanksgiving this year, so I'm looking forward to having these outside for the next month, unless the squirrels get to them first.

I was hoping to get some "fall" photos before the Halloween spiderwebs went up, but, I got to anxious to get our house spooked out.  After Halloween, the spiderwebs will come down and it will look classic autumn again.  We love halloween around here.

Inside, I'm embracing all colors muted and warm - love the mix of these slate ticking stripe + gold fleur block print pillows.  They compliment each other so nicely and feel a little elegant in our living room.

While the outdoor garden is fading, the indoor one is coming to life.  I'm ahead of the game, but it is almost time to start those paperwhite bulbs.

We've had this little guy for a couple of years - I love him!  He feels very old fashioned to me, and perfectly festive.

Mike's office doesn't get very much attention on here, but I especially love this room in the fall and winter months.  

This is our cozy room.  We mostly use it after Emma goes to bed or on Saturday mornings for coffee and watching This Old House : )

This photo is from last year but our kitchen always feels about the same... except not as clean today : )

It is looking more like this this week from the Thanksgiving Collection launch.

Plus some M&Ms.  Thank goodness these are Candy Corn M&Ms (Emma's choice)... I'm not tempted by them.  I already polished off the Peanut Butter fall M&Ms from last week. 

Ok, now I'm motivated to get the counters cleaned off again.

I've added the new Grey Check and Gold & Grey Stripe Pillows to the hearth room and I'm in love.  Since I added the gold block print ottoman slipcover I've been needed some more saturated tones.  It is a nice break from all of the white during these cozier months.

I also added more framed botanicals to create groupings of four on each side of the fireplace.  It makes the room feel so much more finished - love.  To make them not feel quite so busy, I used the thicker mats with the smaller openings.  This are the 11x14" frame, antique narrow mats with 5x7" prints.

On the other side of the hearth room, the dining room is set (for the moment!).  I just piled tons of pumpkins down the center and lots of taper candles.  Such an easy and bountiful tablesetting - no floral arranging skills necessary.

The Grey Check Napkins are so nice with my Spode china.  In the past, linens have been tricky to coordinate with the Spode since it has such a strong pattern.  The new grey check is such a nice compliment.

I've moved the paper white bulbs to the sunny spot in the mudroom for the meantime until they start to shoot up.  I call it my "garden bench."

Mr. Darcy and I love these fall days.  After a non existent spring and a too hot and dry summer, we've earned this beautiful weather.
