My Fall Home Tour

Fall is definitely creeping in a bit in my part of the country.

We have cooler temps . . . well, cooler to me means it is not in the 90’s . . .

and I can see some slight changes in the color of the leaves on some trees.

That being said, it is time for my Fall Home Tour AND A GIVEAWAY!!!

So grab a seat and your favorite beverage and come along!

bHome Fall Tour

This week I am joining my very talented bHome bloggers for our bHome Fall Tour.

I want to take this time to thank our leader/coordinator of this tour, 

Lidy of the beautiful blog and shop French Garden House . . . thank you Lidy!!

If you are coming from Christy’s of Our Southern Home, WELCOME!!!

Now that we are on the subject of “Welcome”,

I always welcome my friends and family with this special pumpkin

in the Fall, that has a special place next to the front door.

Fall Porch-Housepitality Designs-2

The porch decorated for Fall this year contains the color that I have used

in my home for Fall. Plums and  Purples are the accent color for this year.

For more of my Front Porch for Fall, you can see it HERE.

With my home recently being placed on the market,

I have tried to keep my interiors and seasonal decorating neutral with the sense

of less is more….however, that is not an easy task for me. I love color.

The Great Room is filled with shades of blue and the pops of the plums and purple tones.

The coffee table vignette has changed from this original one

with a blue and white cache pot filled with orchids.

Great Room-Autumn Decor-Housepitality Designs

I recently created a vignette of the beautiful silk velvet PlushPumpkins in my foyer.

It did not take long to transfer them to the coffee table in the Great Room,

as I wanted to be able to enjoy and see them more throughout the day!

Velvet Pumpkins

The breadboard returned to the table to provide more texture

and contain portions of the vignette on the table.

The antique French bamboo stool and books added to the table to

provide height and a pretty visual effect.

In having to keep my interiors less fussy with seasonal displays,

I just added a few touches here and there in the Media Room.

A pumpkin, a vase of wheat, and a vase of greenery and feathers

say “hello Fall” !

If you would like to see more of my Media Room for Fall, you can see it HERE.

When I was searching for Fall pillows for the Sunroom, I came across

beautiful plum velvet pillows at Pottery Barn. This actually set the tone

for my Fall colors this year.

Sunroom-Fall 2017-Housepitaity Designs

The color is actually deeper and richer than the ones seen in the sunroom photos.

When I was at the store purchasing the pillows, I wasn’t exactly sure if the plum

pillows would coordinate well with the green in the wicker, but once they were placed

on the chair and loveseat, I so loved the look.

For more pretty views of the sunroom for Fall, you can see them HERE.

Fall is definitely in the air and hope you enjoyed this year’s  little Fall tour,

  1. Love these pumpkins—pinned & pined for!

    Hi Shirley, your beautiful home will not be on the market long! Everyone will surely love it!
    I have pinned the pumpkins in the hope they will soon decorate my foyer.

  4. Oh my, I love the texture and colors of these Plush Pumpkins. I have pinned them.

  5. Oh, Shirley, Shirley, Shirley. I just don’t even know where to go after this. Your home is beautiful all year round, and fall is certainly no exception. Just beautiful! Do you have to bring that ivy on the porch in over the winter months, or are you able to keep it outside? It looks so lush and healthy. We have to bring everything in if we want a chance of it surviving with temps getting down below zero at times over the winter. Problem is there’s nowhere to put it!!! ? I wish I could build another level onto the house with a greenhouse on the south side!

  6. Wow, what a great site for gorgeous velvet pumpkins! The colors are so beautiful especially the pink lemonade collection and the plum in your sunroom. Your home looks like it just came out of a photo shoot for a magazine!! It won’t last long on the current market. Best of Luck, Shirley!

    Shirley, Your home is so beautiful no matter the season. I hate to see you leave this beauty but know your next home will hold all the promise of new ideas. I can’t wait to see what you do. These pumpkins are to die for. I would have never though purple pumpkins could be so beautiful. I’ve visited the site and was left speechless. The colors are outstanding.

I am originally from NC and if we were moving back, I definitely would be making an appointment with a realtor to view your home….it is lovely and definitely my style but looks like SC is going to be permanent for us.

  27. Your home looks so lovely and I adore those purple pumpkins.

  49. Bobbi Duncan says

    Shirley, thank you for another gorgeous fall tour. Looking back I can’t think of any decorating you’ve done that I haven’t loved. You’ve really been an inspiration to me, especially on those lazy days when I just couldn’t get going in my own home. But the thing that I have most loved is your genuine sweetness which always comes across in every post. We are seeing more and more color arriving in our little corner of the world…I have been enjoying my country drives through our hills and dales. Happy fall to you!

  50. I love your tour with non traditional fall colors and I really loved the velvet pumpkins! Pinned!!

  55. I checked out the website to see all the lovely pumpkin colors available. So pretty!

  56. Helen Stoffel says

    Thanks for the lovely tour! Love the plum with the green. Visited Plush Pumpkins, now I’m drooling. :).

  57. You have a beautiful home!! I love these plush pumpkins so much. I pinned them and went on their website and wanted to buy them all!

  58. Shirley, how wonderful it is to see someone using rich color for the season!! You use color so well and it looks just beautiful in your lovely home!! So warm and welcoming!

  59. Shirley, your home is breathtaking! You really know how to use color! Your photos make me me want to linger and take in every detail. I was admiring your front entry and those beautiful wood doors and then you showed us the back of your home with the porches and it really took my breathe away! It’s a dream home for sure. I love every room!

  60. Love the decor! The Plush Pumpkins are adorable…I visited their site and pinned it.

  61. Just beautiful! I love the addition of the plums and purples for fall especially in contrast to the green wicker in your sunroom. Your brushed gold watering can makes a perfect little fall vase for your plum alstroemeria and mums. Those wonderful velvet pumpkins are prefectly plush. ♥
