Fall Patio

I cannot get enough of this beautiful fall we’re having. The leaves are finally starting to turn here, and the weather has been nothing short of beautiful. Most days are still warm and sunny, but we’ve had just enough chilly, rainy days too that make you want to throw on a cozy sweater and sip on a mug of hot chocolate. And I’ve needed a reason to finally wear my collection of cute boots that I seem to keep adding to throughout the year… : ) I truly love this season!

I’ve shared quite a few different spaces from our little farmhouse dressed up for fall over the last month or so… from our country kitchen, to the cozy living room, to a simple fall table setting, to our master bedroom retreat, to our festive front porch

… and now I get to share probably my favorite space of all with you… our patio! After giving this tiny concrete slab in our backyard a big makeover this summer, I couldn’t let this season go by without adding a touch of fall to our sweet, little patio. This has been the perfect place to sit outside during the day, looking at the gorgeous colors on the trees and feeling the warm sunshine on my face, and my favorite spot to sit under the stars at night with candles lit and a cozy blanket wrapped around me.

A New Bench in the Entryway

Sponsored by At Home // Our entryway is probably one of the hardest working areas of our home, next to the kitchen. Right now it’s full of jackets in every shape and size and muddy boots coming in from the field and ball caps from sports practices and a million other miscellaneous items that don’t belong here, but the entryway seems to be the perfect place to drop everything when we walk in the door. So this week I took some time to clean things up a bit and add a few new pieces to the entryway to help keep things organized and of course, looking pretty. This IS the first space I see when I come home to our little farmhouse… I want it to make me smile!

This beautiful farmhouse entryway is the perfect mix of style and organization with a cozy bench, hooks for coat storage, and a basket for accessories.

Simple Farmhouse Front Porch

This post is sponsored by our friends at Joss and Main // Hello, darlings! You’ve seen plenty of fall decorating on the inside of our house over the last few weeks, but you didn’t think I’d forget about the outside of our little farmhouse, did you? Our front porch is the first thing you see when you pull into our driveway, so even though it is small, I want it to be welcoming.

I put an old barrel that we pulled from one of our barns next to the door and set some candle lanterns on top for pretty lighting in the evening. I love these little teak stools that I just picked up, which are the perfect size for displaying pumpkins or colorful mums this time of year. The porch is simple, but I think it feels charming and inviting!

Fall Bedroom + Fall Into Home Tour

Welcome back to more fall decorating at the farmhouse, sweet friends! Today I am sharing one of my favorite spaces in the whole house, our cozy master bedroom, and I also have an exciting home tour to share with you! If you’re new here or just catching up, I’ve already shared a few different rooms over the last few weeks all decorated for fall, but when my dear friend, Rachel from Maison de Pax, asked me to join in her Fall Into Home Tour this year, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. So today I’m sharing the first look at our fall bedroom, recapping the other spaces I’ve already decorated, and giving you 13 other home tours you can check out next!

Our master bedroom is located on the second level and took quite a bit of imagination to turn this dark, awkward attic space into a bright, beautiful, relaxing retreat. We added wide, rustic planks to all the walls and painted them white, which really helped to lighten up the space. Then we created a cozy nook for our farmhouse style iron bed by adding a faux wood beam to the ceiling and hanging white lace curtains up inside of the beam to frame the bed area. It is such a peaceful, inviting space to fall asleep in every night and makes it very hard to leave every morning!

Our New Farmhouse Entryway

Our living room and dining room are the first spaces you see when you walk into our farmhouse, and while I do love a lot of the things we’ve done in these rooms, I’ve always only been about 90% happy with either space. These two rooms have been tough for me to design and decorate for some reason. Our living room is open to the dining room, kitchen and front hallway, so we have a lot of traffic coming through this space. Plus we also have baseboard heaters on a few walls and a big picture window that makes furniture placement challenging. And then our dining room happens to also be our entryway, since we use this exterior door to come and go instead of the main front door. Unfortunately this space is pretty tight and narrow, and for the last few years I’ve tried to cram our large farmhouse dining table AND space for entryway storage in here. We made it work for a few years, but this summer I started playing around with the furniture placement and LOVE the way this space flows now. Welcome to our new entryway!
