Fall Home Tour 2017

Fall Home Tour 2017

Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying your fall so far. I know we sure are, and this cooler weather has been very much appreciated over here at the Gainer household. Our rule of thumb the colder the better….hahaha. 

Well, as the sign on my front door says “Welcome to Our Home”. We are really excited to host our first fall home tour on the blog. I will be joining my talented group of design bloggers to bring you a link party home tour so you can get the full fall experience. 

My front door arrangement consist of multi colored leaves, wheat and rye. The grapevine basket is an item I have had for years, found on a girls day out adventure from a cute little floral shop in south GA.  I was so lucky to scored this cute welcome sign at Hobby Lobby, as it was the last one at my local store……. and of course did not have a price tag…… Which could only mean, it had to be mine lol.  I was originally thinking that I would put a more colorful pillows out for the fall, but I just love these cute pillow covers, and they say it all. I also picked up several of these fantastic throw blankets so you will see them everywhere, specifically for outdoor use, since the price was right, at 40% off, wink wink. 
My dear, sweet, husband hand built the apple crates and the beautiful wheelbarrow for me, at my request. Mainly because I could not find the size, shape or style I was looking for in a wheelbarrow.  For those of you that don’t know my husband had shoulder surgery on August 11th for a Labral tear. He was actually building this 4 weeks after his shoulder surgery, and he literally built them while still in a sling, with his non dominate left arm.  I am telling you the man has skills….. As you enter into my home feel free to drop off you coat, hat or bag while you enjoy the rest of my home tour. This is our lovely drop zone also built by my super talented husband. I really love that I can use it as a decoding vignette for the season and it functional since our coat closet is near our garage door not the front entry door. 
Directly across from the drop zone is our dining room.  This year I decided not to put any orange on my table….yet. I mean why does fall have to be orange, red and yellow? Here is GA everything is still green…LOL. I will be posting an article in early October on how to convert your table 3 ways for the busy holiday season. Be sure to check back to see how I will transform this autumn table to a spooky Halloween table then into a festive Thanksgiving Day table for your family to gather around.I figured out of all my pretty tablescape pictures,  I just had to use the one with, my cat, Ralphy in the window. This will truly give you are sense of my home, in a nutshell.I have so many cats I actually decorate with them. At least he is not on the table this time….. guess there were to many candles for him. This table was inspired by an beautiful entry I received on my cohost hashtag event #farmhousedecorrules. The picture was a beautiful antique vanity with pillar candles in milk glass vases. When I saw it over the summer I knew that would be my fall tablescape, add in some green moss, fresh cotton, and pale colored pumpkins. Over on the buffet I have a second set of galvanized pumpkins flanking my pheasant feather cornucopia. This cornucopia arrangement is made with magnolias, cotton, mercury balls and pheasant feathers. Just the perfect touch for fall and keeping with the neutral tablescape . Meanwhile Khaleesi has decided to”gather” herself in a sunny spot on one of my pull to the table dining chairs. You know it is hard work living in the Gainer house, I tell you…..lol. I will let her snooze but she was just too cute not to take a picture and add her to the post. Moving on, across from the dining room is our living room. I have decide to keep this are very simple just added a few fall colored leaves to a glass jar. Which match my favorite throw from Scotland tucked over an old  rustic ladder. I added small cotton in the corner vases to carry the theme though out the house. As we head back into the great room I have relocated the decorative birch logs to a pretty basket by the fireplace, to make room for the seasoned firewood which will be put to use as soon as it cold enough.I carried the same leaves into this room too, along with some great plum throws and cuddly gray pillows of varying fur varieties. Nothing say fall quite like snuggly soft pillows and throws. 

This Mongolian fur pillow may be my absolute favorite out of the whole bunch. It soft and fuzzy like a small animal, but unlike my felines I can pet it when ever I want too. (lol that was a cat joke, for all my cat people out there)  
Now let’s head on upstairs to our humble abode, the master bedroom. Again I kept things super simple just adding in some of those fall colored throws, blankets and quilts. We recently changed out our bedding to an all white quilt and comforter set which makes seasonal changes so quick and  easy to implement. I also purchased a new heating blanket for the foot of the bed in a beautiful charcoal gray. Not only does it keep our feet warm but the cats love it too, especially our 18 year old that hates how cold we keep the house. So we 20 settings and a keep on feature she never has a day that she can’t find a warm place to curl up and sleep.  I also added some fall feather to an existing floral piece. Sometimes the easiest way to dress up area for the season is to shop your home, by add to existing pieces already in your home. It gives the space a more organic feel since it is something that normally lives in that space. This is our quilt basket that normally lives on the sleeping porch, off of our master bedroom. I always make sure to have plenty of soft weather proof blankets and throws along with the latest and greatest reading materials for the season.This is one of our two guest rooms. It was originally designed for the children, of our guests, with twin beds to allow for extra sleeping capacity.  I always keep soft chunky faux fur blankets at the foot of the beds, great for story time or sipping a cup of cocoa before bed time. Keeping that in mind we might be having younger guests, I like to add fun little touches like a stuff owl and a trick or treat jar on the night stand for candies or mints.A few fall leaves to an existing floral arrangement gives the room that farmhouse fall feeling. This guest room carries a gray and orange color story so the rustic orange leaves were perfect for this room.
This is the final room inside the house which is our second guest bedroom. This room is normally a gray and yellow color story, so the merlot plaid with the touches of yellow work perfectly in this room and really make those fun pillows pop.  I added a few dried autumn hydrangea to the night stand. Check out these fun antique 1970’s Avon after shave bottles as a conversation start also in this room. I love to use the quail and goose bottles in the fall. Fun story about these bottles, they were my husband’s. A childhood Christmas gift from long ago, these bottles are over 30 years old, and (unfortunately) still house the original Wild Country and Windjammer fragrances. Notice I said last room inside the house, as we head out to back yard. I could not help but want to add a cozy blanket and pillows to the truck bench, which is by far one of our favorite places to cuddle.  Its close enough to the outdoor fireplace but yet it is still in a covered porch area. 

Yes I even decorated my outdoor fireplace. Teehee  I add a few fall leaves even though my real ones will surely be showing up soon. Hopefully we will have a pretty fall but if we keep have tropical storms and hurricanes I am afraid the leaves will be blown off the tress before they can change colors. 

This is our outdoor living space and fireplace. I have a feeling we will spend a lot of time out here this fall as the weather get cooler.  This is a great space to chill hang and entertain. Last weekend we had a few Caramel Apple Toddy’s by the fire and it was marvelous. Check out the link to get the recipe, I promise you will love it.Well I hope you enjoyed our leg of  The 2017 Fall Home Tour.
