Welcome back friends! Can you believe the leaves are beginning to change and and pumpkin spice lattes are back? I feel like it was just yesterday that we were sharing spring home tours with you and talking about unicorn frappuccinos.
Now that it’s fall, it means another installment of Seasonal Simplicity Home Tours. If you are visiting from Erin Spain, hello and thank you for joining me! Keep reading for links to all 22 amazing fall home tours.
This summer we went outdoors for a cozy backyard tour. But, now I’m back inside sharing my kitchen nook and dining room all decorated for fall.
The Dining Room
For us, fall is filled with after school activities, an October birthday, impromptu bonfires, and football Sundays (with lots of delicious tailgating food).
The slower pace of summer is behind us and organization becomes a critical part of our household. So, I like to keep things simple with a few fall vignettes around the house – like this simple table centerpiece.
Because my kids like to use this space for homework and school projects, I don’t spend a lot of time creating beautiful table settings. But ‘m so jealous of those of you who do.
Instead, I like to add table decor that can be moved easily. My husband found this Buddy L wagon and I thought it had a vintage woodsy vibe. You know my love for old boxes right? I just assembled some earthy elements (eucalyptus, pinecones, birch logs, and antlers) in an old crate to fashion this fall centerpiece.
We made two major changes to this room since our Spring home tour.
Change #1: We finally got rid of the stained, dated tiles and replaced them with a more modern and brighter solution. Yay us!
You may not have noticed, but I sure did. I was always embarrassed by the old dingy tiles. See how easy it was to update our ugly drop ceiling in just a few hours.
Change #2: We really loved the old shelf we had in this space, but I always felt like it looked messy. I like being able to tuck things out of sight in this empire dresser I painted with Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint in Chairish. I added a decorative design inspired by Kate Spade’s Charlotte pattern.
As a result of this change, I feel like this color really illuminated our dining space – it’s such a nice contrast to all the blue-gray tones and complements the globe collection.
Oh, and I finally made a hoop wreath using thrift store finds and you can get the details here.
This season I even decided to get my grandmother’s silver out. I hate that it stays in the case most of the time and I want to use it more – because why not! Life’s too short to keep the fine silver tucked away – don’t you agree?
The Kitchen Nook
Aside from tucking little pumpkins all around my house, I decorated my retro-styled kitchen nook. If you saw my holiday home tour last year, you might have noticed my holiday dollhouse.
Well, I found a toy dairy barn to decorate for fall at an antique store this summer! And, I totally adore it. (if there were sound with this post, you would hear me squeal with delight)
Once again, I grabbed an old crate for my fall dairy farm setting. We added some cute handles on the outside of this box so it resembled a tray. It’s such a fantastic way to display unique items on your tabletop.
Then I just filled with some dried flowers, including hydrangeas from my front yard. I wanted the words on the milk container to be more visible so I filled it with navy beans before sticking some cotton stems in it.
I love the eclectic mix of retro and farmhouse style in this small space. And, this vintage dinette table and chairs was probably one of the most challenging DIY projects I had ever tackled, but I haven’t regretted it one bit. This table and chairs is one of my most favorite pieces of furniture we own.

I’m still working on pulling my front porch display together and hope to share it with you soon. Meanwhile, you can catch up with my other fall styling ideas on insta-stories.
