It’s Fall o’Clock Somewhere. (My Fall Home Tour!)

Welcome to my 2018 Fall Home Tour!

Today I’m joining 20+ blogging friends for a farmhouse fall blog hop. If you’re coming over from Twelve on Main, let me say a great big hello! Hope y’all are having fun taking the home tours!

I have already shared a few of my fall decor posts so I’ll link them up here for you to go back and read if you’re interested.

First up was this free Fall printable that’s on the apothecary table in my foyer. If you need some free fall decor, go print this off and display it somewhere in your house!

To everything there is a season fall printable-10

Yesterday I shared my newest addition to the foyer, this set of vintage post office boxes that I transformed into another display area in my foyer.

I am in LOVE with how this little DIY project turned out! Y’all go read all about it right here, ok?

I also added one more little vignette over at the bottom of my staircase, because why not.

I do believe I have the fanciest falled-up foyer in all the land at this point.

Bless this house and all who enter sign

But the real magic is happening over in my living room. Come on over and see my fall mantel (aka my fantel!) 

I know I signed up for a farmhouse fall home tour, but to be fair, I don’t think my home technically qualifies as a “farmhouse”.

I mean, it’s a brick house that sits at the end of a cul-de-sac and I sure don’t have any chickens running around, but I like to think I’m somewhere in the farmhouse realm? Maybe? I dunno.

I’ve always described my style as “Flea Market Fancy” so let’s just stick with that.

I’m more of a traditionalist in my home decor, and if you haven’t noticed, I have this little problem with going overboard with my decorating. I like layer upon layer of decor with even more piles of chotchkes stacked on top. Too much is never enough. The more decor the better.

I have the best of intentions. I scroll past all the other blogger’s feeds on Instagram and I truly WANT my home to be all light, white, and clutter-free. I tell myself every year that I’m going to scale it back, but then I pull out the fall decor bins from the basement and before I know it, every square inch of my house is covered in an explosion of pumpkins and wreaths.  I just look around, shake my head and wonder why I cannot edit myself better.

It’s like some kind of sickness.  I have to display ALL THE THINGS.

I mean, why use just one white pumpkin when you can pile your entire mantel full of ’em, amiright?

It doesn’t help matters that I am a blogger and I get offers for free product all the time.

To be honest, I turn down 98% of the offers that come through my inbox, but every once in a while something catches my eye and I decide to go for it. Today is one of those days. If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen my IG story from a few weeks back when I announced that I had accepted my very first sponsored post of the year.

The friendly folks from At Home asked me to decorate my house using their fall decor, so this post is full of items that I found on a shopping trip to my local At Home store.

Now imma be the first to admit that I never have been a fan of macrame, but I saw this tree of life macrame and it stopped me in my tracks.

I kinda love it. I’ve seen something like this going for $70 on etsy, but this one was $7.99. Whoothoot!

I also love that GIANT eucalyptus wreath and those little leather strapped baskets. Who am I kidding? I love it all. If you’re needing some new stuff to deck your halls for fall, be sure to check out At Home.

Especially fall wreaths… they’ve got about a gajillion of ’em.

When I was editing these pics I noticed that my side chair in the corner was looking a little bit empty since I forgot to add a pillow when I snapped these photos. Whoopsies.

So this weekend I added a comfy flannel throw and a cute “Morning Pumpkin” pillow.

And now it’s the perfect spot to snuggle up by the fire and read a book. Except that ain’t nobody in Alabama snuggling up by the fire anytime soon. It’s HOT out here, y’all.

If I could turn the air conditioning down to about 60 degrees a fire might actually be bearable, but I can’t afford that power bill.

The weather outside is nowhere near fall temps here in Alabama yet. We are currently hovering somewhere in the melt-your-face-off range.  Which is why you will not see any pictures of my porches decorated for fall just yet.  Nothing would survive the surface of the sun that is my front porch these days.

But it’s still fun to get the inside all dressed up and pretend that it’s fall o’clock somewhere.

Since this post is getting WAAAAAYYY long, I’m going to stop right here with this little teaser of my kitchen and tell you to come back tomorrow for part two of my Fall home tour.  I’ve gone a little crazy with the decor this year and it’s just too much to fit inside one post.

If you’re jonesin’ for more fall goodness today, be sure to head over to visit all the other bloggers on this awesome Farmhouse Fall Home Tour with me this week.  Here’s a teaser video so you can see what you’ll get…

This post was sponsored by At Home, The Home Decor Superstore. I try to just call it At Home, but it sounds much better when I call it by it’s full legal name–At Home, The Home Decor Superstore.  I was compensated for this sponsored post and bought myself some new fall decor because I can obviously never have enough. All opinions about weather, clutter, and macrame are my own. If you have an At Home, the Home Decor Superstore near you, you should totally check it out. Because it’s fall, y’all.

  9. Beth, your home is stunning! Those vintage mailboxes literally made my jaw drop. What a beautiful find! Also, the mantle is perfect and perfectly styled! I am dying to redo our fireplace surround and I adore your brick hearth.

    • Thank you so much Rachel!! I do love my fireplace, too. The grey brick is nice and neutral. I’ve lusted after rock fireplaces forever but now I’ve decided to embrace the brick. And thanks for the compliments about the mailbox! My husband is the best! 🙂

  10. LOVE!
    I’m un-dressed for Fall on the porch too, due to projects.
    Maybe next year? LOL
    I happily looked at all your layers and enjoyed them thoroughly.
    It’s nothing like there, but it’s 75* today and that’s almost a heat wave. hahaha

  11. Your mantel is pure fall perfection, Beth! It’s bursting with fall inspiration! And p.s. I’m not too farmhouse either but just love joining in on hops for all the great inspiration! 🙂
    Best,
    Kelly

  13. I am not ready for summer to end, buttttt, after seeing this fabulous post I am beginning to look forward to the fall

  15. Beth, your home is so cozy and welcoming! I love all your Fall touches.

  16. I love your Fall decorating, Beth. As always everything looks great!
    I usually tell myself I am going to do simple too but rarely do. This year Florence made me and while I love the simple look I kinda miss all my Fall decorations.

  18. I loved your tour, Beth! Your fireplace is a total showstopper!!
