Fall Home Tour at Hawthorne and Main

Welcome to my Fall Home Tour at Hawthorne and Main. I hope that you can find some inspiration as you take a peek at my home this lovely fall season!  Let me know what you think!

Fall is in the air. I cannot believe that I have already had to put a jacket on! Fall is one of my favorite times of year.  I decided to clean my house, just for you, (haha) to show you some of the things that I have chosen to decorate with this fall.  I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Welcome to my home, I hope you enjoy my fall home tour at Hawthorne and Main!

As you enter through the front door you see my grandmothers old dresser.  I was lucky enough to get this piece from her after she passed.  I cannot bring myself to paint it yet.

I decided to bring back my DIY Fall wreath that I did last year. If you are looking for an easy and did I mention, FREE wreath, this one is just for you!

I also added a few white pumpkins and a little pop of green!

Since our house has a very open floor plan you sort of enter the house and are greeted with the front room, dinning room, and kitchen all at once.

The dinning room has a simple birch planter centerpiece, with my drop cloth table runner, my fav!

Just to the left of the fire place is a small chest.  Although I got it to store some of my nicer dishes, it has become the fridge/hiding place for all things little girl play. I guess the dishes can wait!

I added a faux wool IKEA rug to the top, a basket with a fall leaf garland, some sunflowers
and my favorite bird pillow. Simple and festive!

The mantel was sort of one of those things that just came together one day.  I had totally forgotten about this flower mirror.  My parents were down visiting one weekend and came across this at the thrift store. They knew I would like it, and I do! They snatched it up quick.

The black framed art is a DIY, and I totally and completely love the result!  I also DIY’d the wood dominos.Welcome to my Fall Home Tour at Hawthorne and Main. I hope that you can find some inspiration as you take a peek at my home this lovely fall season!  Let me know what you think!

I found some moss and small river rocks at the dollar store.  I put them in a tall glass jar and added some branches from the backyard.  I love the height and intrigue that it adds!

Continuing on, straight ahead is our family room.  I did some furniture rearranging a few months ago.  The TV used to be in the first room that I showed you, the front room.  It seemed that we never ever set foot in the family room, a huge waste of space.

Since moving the TV in the family room, we never ever use the front room anymore…… haha. I am glad that I made the switch though. The family is room is quite a bit bigger which can hold a lot more people.

Here is where my Target bookshelf hack is residing.  I have really grown to love this piece. Plus the makeover was pretty simple and very inexpensive.

This shelf has the perfect amount of fall colors.

This bookshelf got a very simple fall look this year.  The top shelf has a metal basket that I have had for years, here is a similar metal basket. All I did was add some dollar store moss, burlap and a few sunflowers.

The middle shelf has a wood box on it that I made a few months ago. I added 3 milk bottles with another fall garland.

I added a metal bin to the bottom shelf.   Right now it is filled with some odds and ends. I actually have about 4 of these bins, they are super sturdy and well made.

This buffet table is a fairly new addition to our home. I had been looking for a long time for one of these.  I have to admit that I am not an expert furniture thrifter.  I really like this piece but after I bought it I realized that it had some damage to the top and the inside smells horribly of smoke.

I am still really happy with how the paint job turned out!

The tribal arrow is a recent project. The drop cloth  banner is still one of my favs.  The old window was a piece that I found down at the family farm, where my parents live.

I picked up this rustic metal basket at Michaels the other day, with a 50% off price tag the price was right! I went outside and found some large rocks to put inside. I also added some natural IKEA placemats under the rustic basket.

Well folks, if you made it all the way here then you have officially made it to the end of the tour!  Thank you for joining me!

What was your favorite part?

I am curious, when do you start to decorate for Fall?

    What a beautiful fall home tour! I just adore the birch planter centerpiece on your table and that buffet table is decorated nicely, too for the fall! I need to do some pinning! What a warm and inviting home!

      Thank you Carrie! I love that birch planter centerpiece too! I was walking around Joann the other day and spotted that planter. It sort of just jumped into my cart, so glad it did! Thank you so much for pinning and for stopping by!

    • says

      On my gosh thank you Erica, seriously! This house seems to always be a work in progress, you know how it goes. It has come a long way since we first moved in though. I can say the same about your house! You guys are really making it look amazing!

  2. says

    you house is gorgeous. so warm and full of good taste.
    the centerpiece on that dinning room table is my favorite!
    and that old dresser must be very precious to you. congratulations for keeping it!!!

    • says

      Thank you Gabriela! I really like the centerpiece too! It was so easy to create. A stop at Joann gave me all the supplies. I really do love that dresser, it brings back some fun memories of my grandma.

    Shonee, I know this must have been a lot of work but wow – it’s stunning. Everything looks so warm and cozy. I love love love the layers of texture you’ve add throughout all of the rooms. Just gorgeous! Hugs, CoCo

      Thank you CoCo! I love to decorate, so even if it’s a lot of work it’s fun for me! I am sort of a serial decorator. Things cannot stay the same for very long around here. To be honest, I decorated one room at a time. Piece by piece over the course of a few days. It came together pretty well. Thank you again! xox

  4. says

    oh my goodness!!! I’m completely inspired by all of your fall nesting! Every detail gives me the warm fuzzies ! xo
    And thanks so much for inspiring us all at the Monday Funday link up! ox
    (I’m featuring your tour next week!)

      Thank you Katherine! I love fall, even though we are still in the 100’s here. I guess this is my way of hoping for a little bit cooler weather. But, not too cold. hahha. I will definitely come link up to your party, thanks!

    What a beautiful home! I adore those dark floors ~ my fav! I loved all the different textures (rocks, wood, leaves, fur!).

    Thank you for sharing this week at Brag About It link party on VMG206 (Mondays at Midnight).

      Thanks Megin! I really like the dark floors too. The only down side is that they show dust really easily. Other than that they are great. I decided to add some more natural elements to my fall decor this year and it really has made the home feel more cozy. Thanks for stopping by!

    • says

      Thank you Kathy! I still feel like my style is a work in progress. I used to get upset with myself because I would create something and then hate it, feeling like it wasn’t me. I have decided to just roll with it and let myself evolve slowly and over time at a normal pace. I am still trying to find me. Does that make sense. Thanks!

    Love your site and the fall tour…quick question, where did you get the birch printed burlap ribbon? JoAnn’s?

    Re the strong odors in your buffet, try spraying the interior w/either hydrogen peroxide or ‘cheap’ vodka (use a spray bottle and do it liberally). I like to remove the drawers and put outside. Then spray the places where the drawers go in. I had a piece of furniture that was in my bro’s basement and it smelled horrific! The vodka worked wonders!

    I’m looking forward to following you on FB! Regards from New England.

    • says

      Hey Jeanne! Thank you. I did get the burlap ribbon at Joann. It was by all the garlands and fake flowers. Oh my gosh, thank you for the de-smell tip! I just opened one of the drawers the other day and had forgotten how bad it smells. I am totally going to try this. Thanks!! Have a great weekend!

    Everything looks so pretty. I wish I had more creativity when it comes to decorating and setting things out like pumpkins and fall leaves. Mine always seem to look dorky. Thanks for sharing at #HomeMattersParty

      Thank you Michelle. I think my best advice for decorating, is first, find an image from Pinterest or a magazine and use what you have to sort of copy and layout your display in a similar fashion. This will give you a good base to start from. Then, over time you will start to get a feel for it and start to come up with ideas on your own. I honestly feel that anyone can decorate, it just takes practice. You got this!

    • says

      Thanks Gilly! I love the fall colors so it was fun to decorate with all of the oranges, yellows and browns this year. I really like how the sideboard turned out. I still haven’t done a reveal post with before and after pics yet…. I need to. Have a great week. BTW, I am so excited to be in the link party together! yay!

    In regards to your grandmother’s chest you have not painted as yet. I would not paint it. I would distress it and then wax it. I would make it more of what it is. Your decorations are lovely.

    • says

      Carolyn, I still have not touched it. No paint, nothing. I can’t bring myself to do anything with it. I like the idea of making it distressed with wax. Definitely going to look into that. Thanks!

  9. says

    The fall colors go so well with the interior paint colors in our house that I always decorate for fall the first week or September so I have a full 3 months to enjoy it! Your fall décor is fabulous! Thanks for sharing! Blessings, Janet
