Hello, October and beautiful Fall! This time of year holds so much not only in the gorgeous changing of the colors in our landscape but in all the fun activities for our family. We now live across the lake from our town’s brand new high school stadium so we have been enough Friday night lights to the max. I also love all the fall celebrations our town has and it is so incredibly different here compared to growing up in California. I love that Lauren gets to enjoy all these new traditions our town has!
This year I did not join the rest of “blog land” and decorate my home in August and post it at the beginning of September. As I posted last week, I just purged our media room and with that I had my husband pull out all our fall decor boxes which I am currently weeding through. I found some pieces I have not used in years that I pulled out for this year’s decor and A LOT I am saying goodbye too. You can catch up on our home purge HERE.
So welcome to my better late than never fall home tour!

My color scheme this year was shades of wheat and sage greens. It’s not quite gold but if you think of the color wheat is then you are right on the money. I love that this color combo is such an easy one from shades of summer and neutral enough that it is not too overpowering with the fall decor.
Finally with the fireplace the right color (you can check out my sources page for all paint colors), it is a little pop and accents the tile beautifully. I decorated the mantle very similarly from last years but adding in that soft golden color changed it ever so slightly that it feels fresh and new. You can check out last years mantle HERE.
To create the mantle display, I first laid down seeded eucalyptus branches and then I layered in the pumpkins on top. I used a combo of rattan, jute and natural fiber pumpkins with white and sage green ones. I then added in some more greenery I had already from my upstairs buckets and some of these beautiful pale golden yellow branches from Hobby Lobby. I just kept tucking and filling until I felt it was full enough.
Lastly, I layered in lots of candles, my mercury glass candlesticks, and some more modern white vases.
I love these beautiful textured linen pillows. This is the second color I have gotten because I love them so much. They feel amazing and are the perfect layering pillow with patterns or if you just need a pop of texture to a space. I paired them with these super soft and yummy sage green pillows on my side chairs and threw my favorite chunky knit throw blanket over the arm of the chair.
I think this is a view I rarely share. It is a hard one to get with the lighting but I love the rich pop of the navy sofa with the window treatments in our breakfast room. This year I choose this more antique patterned pillow. It has a mix of that soft yellow gold with a blue grey that is just so pretty for fall.
I love mixing old with new and this hurricane is from a local antique shop. I have looked high and low for something similar but just can’t find it. I will keep looking though. I love these little metal pumpkins too! I got them in 2 sizes. I loved their burnished metal look.
This space feels so warm and cozy and I can’t wait for the fall temperatures to really hit here in Dallas so we can start using our fireplace for the season.
As much as I love homes with neutral sofas and chairs, this royal navy blue sofa really makes this space. I have gotten so many questions about maintaining it and it really is much easier than you think. I probably vacuum it a couple of times a month and that’s it. My family puts their feet up on it and we really “use” it. I have been so happy with how it has held up.
So there you have it! I will be sharing lots more photos on Instagram and Facebook in the next couple of weeks. Hope you loved it and you can check out last years fall home tour too for even more inspiration. All sources for this room and my fall decor this year are below!
