Yes, I’m a weirdo & I call our home the Manor. That’s besides the point though, because I am so so so excited to share my fall home with you! There is nothing I love more than preparing our home for the holidays. Walking past my pretty vignettes & fancy new setups keeps me smiling all day long. It also keeps me busy, because I’m constantly changing & fidgeting with things trying to get them just perfect. But, I’m pretty happy with the way everything’s currently sitting. Last year I was very into more neutral decor. I decided to go totally opposite this year & used loads of bright colors & big floral prints. So let’s take a look, shall we!
We’ll start in the entryway.
I love that burlap canvas! I found it on clearance at Target a few months ago & previously had it sitting on the mantle. I moved it to the front entryway to take up some wall space & free up some mantle space. I do think the style/ message is the perfect greeting to guests for this time of year too. It’s a win-win!
That’s Fiona the fox. She likes to greet people too.
If you follow me on Instagram (which you should be because I post way too much stuff on there), you may have seen my obsession confession over those cheery, yellow leaves. I’ve stuck them everywhere y’all! They’re just so darn pretty!
This whole getup is totally new. We have inherited quite a bit of new/old furniture/knick knacks/ junk from my Great Grandmother’s home as they try to empty out her house, from my Grandparent’s home as they move into a fifth wheel, & my Nana & Papa’s house as they try to prepare to move & take on some pieces from my Great Grandmother’s house. Make sense? Moral of the story- my husband is tired of me bringing home more stuff!! However, I love filling our home with history! We’ve even inherited a few sentimental items from his grandparent’s recently as well. I’m feeling so blessed by it all!
My Great Grandmother made the pillow on the bottom right, probably before I was even alive. It’s sat in the same spot in her house all my life & I was so happy to bring it to my home. I’ll put it out every year with my fall decor.
Super easy $3 decor you can change out for all the holidays/seasons- chalkboards from the Target One Spot. Makes some empty wall space seem super nice & friendly all of a sudden. I have approximately 74 of these leftover from our wedding.
I’m keeping the dining room decor extra simple for now. One burlap runner with a basket full of fall fixings on top. This makes for some quick/cheap fall decor. Grab a bowl, some pinecones & whatever catches your eye at the craft store. Then fill the bowl to overflowing & your done!
On the wall behind the table I hung a cotton wreath (my fave), with a burlap banner (Target One Spot) & my fall rag garland (diy post here!) underneath for some color. Those candlesticks I have gathered in the corner are pretty dreamy too. I’d love to day I could afford elaborate candlesticks like that; but alas, they were all turned by my great grandfather on his lathe. So happy I get to make spot for them in our home!
I’ve posted this spot on Instagram like 500 times lately. Oh my.
If you closely, can you spot my teeny tiny squirrel standing on a nice agate slice?
Now let’s step into the kitchen! I took my fave fall aprons out from the collection & hung them up on the fridge for some extra festiveness. I may even share how to make those chalkboard magnets in a snap sometime soon.
For some reason, I had a lot of trouble filling up my tiered tray. Like a lot. I was becoming terribly disappointed in myself & questioning every previous decor decision. Then I got here, & it seemed quite alright. I’m hoping for better trials with Christmas.
Those mugs though. Swooning.
This is another area I’m having a bit of trouble with. We’ll see how this scene evolves. Check Insta for updates.
Ahh the kitchen table. That’s new too, if you didn’t notice. It sat in my great-grandfather’s hunting lodge in New Jersey & in his childhood home before that. So it was my great-great grandmother’s, aka- someone I’ve never met, but we’re totally connected through this table! My Nana grew up around it, my mom grew up around it & so did I. Now one day our kids will too! Just needs some refinishing & new chairs. Everyone thinks I should paint it a distressed turquoise. What do you think?
Sidenote- You can checkout that Fall Baking Hutch right here!
Some kitchen closeups before we move onto the real deal, the prime rib, the living room!!!
My favorite part about the living room is my coffee table centerpiece.
A tarnished silver tray full of tarnished silver trophy cups turned upside down with candles on top. Glorious I tell you. I actually gave those trophy cups about 5 vinegar/salt/baking soda baths & they look at least 3 times better than they previously did. I gave up on them ever being shiny silver again & decided to embrace the tarnish. I think it’s working.
Now my second favorite part, the mantle. This is where all that color I was going on about really is. I’ll share how to put together those easy as pie lanterns in a few days too!
I had an extra vintage mason jar & a bunch of candlesticks sitting beside it. Naturally, I filled it up & lit them all so they’d melt to different heights. The outcome is rustic fallness at it’s finest.
I’m in love with it all. I’m so lucky to live here!

Happy Fall Y’all!
