Today is my day to share, and I’m so excited to share my fall home with you!  I love this time of year…fall is the perfect reason to make a cozy home…with fall colours, cozy blankets, seasonal pillows, pumpkins and more! So grab your pumpkin spice latte and come take a tour with me!  Happy Fall Y’all!

Bright and Cheery Fall Home Tour

Welcome to my home!  We start my home tour on my Harvest Themed Fall Front Porch, which I shared in full last week on the blog.  I kept things very classic out here with mums, herbs from my summer garden, grasses, pumpkins, sunflowers…all the elements that surround us here in fall.  With the addition of twinkly lights, it feels like a little fall garden party out here.  Now let’s go inside…

On to my favourite space…my living room.  Next to the kitchen, the living room is the hub of our home.  It’s the first space you see when you enter my home, so I thought it was a good place to start.  When I decorate in here I really try to keep things practical.  I like practical and pretty.

We use this space everyday, so it has to be functional.  The easiest way for me to do this is to change out simple elements with each season.  I added some pumpkins to my Neutral Fall Mantel (which I shared here last week), and they tie in perfectly with all of my colourful seasonal pillows and blankets.

I really love blues, greys and orange paired together, and it’s a good thing since so many of my every day accent pieces are blue and grey.  I think these colours work really well together.

Let’s sit and have tea…just push aside one of the dozen pillows I have on my couch and make room.  One can’t have too many pillows can they?  No.

One of my most favourite finds this fall is this pillow I made with CanvasPop!  This is actually a photo that I took and shared on Instagram last year!  You can take any photo and have it put onto a pillow…how fun is that?!  All I had to do was upload my photo and in a few days I had a pillow.  Just think of the pillow possibilities!  I think it’s really neat to have pieces of your own art in your home.  Love love love.  I should also mention that they are durable too…I had to wash one of the covers after my dog put her dirty paws all over it…I threw it in the washer and it came out good as new.

I can’t not share a picture of Molly in my home tour…this pup is my shadow and follows me around constantly.  I have to retake photos all the time because she’s always flying in and out of my shots.  At least this time I caught her chillin.  She approves of all the pillows on my couch 😉

Now on to my kitchen and eating nook.  With the open floor plan on my main level, I like to try to decorate the whole space so it all flows together.  It just feels nice.

I always love to decorate with natural elements as much as I can…especially in a working kitchen.  Swiss chard is doing double duty as a bouquet, while it waits to be turned into dinner!

Fruit bowls are loaded up with fruit ready to be eaten. Functional and gorgeous.

I made a new fall berry wreath for my front door this year, but didn’t want my fiery leaf wreath from last year to sit in the storage room, so I decided to hang it inside on our patio door.  I love it here.  It adds the perfect pop of colour.  Doesn’t it look so nice with the aqua and yellow?

Cheery and so pretty.

As you can see I’ve been adding a lot of colour into our home…the nice thing is that somehow it all seems to match…or at least I think it does 😉  #ALLTHECOLOUR

Here’s my kitchen…I don’t change too much in here.  I like to add seasonal tea towels and put squash out on display…that spaghetti squash is also going to be dinner next week.

I still use these glass containers for all my most used ingredients.  They look pretty all filled up, and they’re convenient…there’s me being practical again.  I also started collecting wooden cutting boards and I used to store them in a cupboard, but I thought it was a shame not to have them out where I could appreciate them.  So I decided to layer my favourites behind these jars and I love how it looks.

And what’s a fall kitchen home tour without something to eat?!  Have a Monster Cookie…they’re delicious.

I did not notice how your hardwood runs angled before, I LOVE that little detail. Your apple pillow is AHHHHHHHmazing! I'll have to check that site out. The kitchen nook is my fave, I adore that yellow door and the mismatched chairs, that glassed hutch all of it, what a gorgeous spot to have tea and watch you create your magic in the kitchen! Also, that black and white print of your littles - that makes it this space absolutely perfect!
  • Reply Heather September 28, 2017 at 10:04 AM Oh how I love your home! I wish I could be there for a glass of wine and some laughs. Your enamelled pan fruit display is my favourite thing. It's gorgeous (and still practical and I LOVE that!)
  • Reply Kyla September 28, 2017 at 10:08 AM YOUR HOME. I just love love love your fireplace. And your pillows. AND YOU MADE THAT PILLOW. i need to do that. JO DASH. Your home is stunning.
  • Reply Shauna September 28, 2017 at 10:16 AM How fun is that pillow?! And I recognize quite a few of your new decor pieces from recent shopping trips- so pretty (I almost picked up that plaid throw). And, yes, I'll take a monster cookie, please. I think it's a similar recipe to my mom's. Happy Fall :)
  • Reply Krista September 28, 2017 at 11:03 AM So many beautiful fall touches! I love the wreath on your kitchen door; and the pops of orange throughout are stunning, Jo-Anna! I would definitely love to come over for a chat and one of those cookies!! Wowza!
  • Reply Colleen Pastoor September 28, 2017 at 10:23 PM One can NEVER have too many pillows! Or at least, that's what I tell my husband almost daily ;) Your home is so cheerful, just like you- I love all the details. That macrame over the mantle is stunning as well!
  • Reply Dannyelle @ Life is a Party September 29, 2017 at 8:32 AM Your home looks beautiful and so cozy. I just love your vintage enamelware on the table with the fruit -what a perfect centrepiece, beautiful and delicious. ;) Great job.
  • Reply Joann @ Woman In Real Life September 29, 2017 at 1:03 PM I always love how you give your porch as much attention as your indoor spaces. It looks so pretty and inviting. The blues, greys and oranges in your living room are lovely together and your mantel looks so pretty! I adore the pillow you made with CanvasPop too. I totally want to do that now! And my dogs are constantly dirtying the pillows, so I'm happy to hear you can machine wash these cushions. Great idea turning swiss chard into a bouquet too, and you can't beat that big dish of fruit. Love it all!
  • Reply Courtenay September 29, 2017 at 6:57 PM Love that canvas pop pillow you made! So clever! Your home is always so lovely and cheery! Thanks so much for the tour!
  • Reply JessB October 2, 2017 at 7:48 AM Those cutting boards definitely need a spot in the sun. Beautiful! And I love the yellow door, wreath and aqua cupboard together. Great job with everything.
  • Reply ariel October 2, 2017 at 3:54 PM You had me at "bright and cheery"! Always such a great livable home decor style, and your choice of natural accents is perfect. Well done friend!
