Our Fall Kitchen

September is such a beautiful time of year here in Indiana. The sun still shines warm and bright during the day, but the evenings start to get cooler each night and beg for us to open up the windows and let in the crisp autumn air. It instantly puts me in the mood to start cozying up the farmhouse for fall, and this week that’s exactly what I did. With a fresh breeze blowing in through the windows and the scent of a spiced pumpkin candle drifting all throughout the house, I got to work on bringing this new season into our home. Yes friends, it’s that time of year. I hope you’re getting as excited as I am!

Apple Upside Down Spice Cake

It’s hard to believe that summer is already slipping away, and I’m starting to look forward to cooler weather and decorating the farmhouse for fall. It seems like as soon as we get that first chilly morning, I’m craving pumpkin and apple desserts and wanting to bust out my chunky sweaters and boots. I’m sure I say this about every season, but fall is one that I really look forward to!

I haven’t quite convinced myself that it’s okay to start pulling out my pumpkins and plaid pillows to decorate the house with yet, but I DID find myself in the kitchen the other day whipping up one of my favorite easy fall treats, Apple Upside Down Spice Cake. It is such a simple recipe and has all the best flavors of fall, so I thought I’d share it with you today to kick off your holiday baking season!

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.

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!
