We are so thrilled and honored to be part of the incredible Finding Fall Home Tours. Join 16 Bloggers and Better Homes & Gardens as they share endless inspiration and ideas for welcoming fall to your home!
If you’ve hopped over to our place after visiting the gorgeous home of Melanie from My Sweet Savannah , welcome to At the Picket Fence! We’re two sisters, living in different parts of the country but sharing the same passion for turning our houses into welcoming homes for friends and family.
Let’s take a peek inside Vanessa’s home, shall we?
Hi there! Welcome to my home nestled in the beautiful Willamette Valley in Oregon. I’m so glad you’re here and I can’t wait to show you how I’ve dressed up my home for fall. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how much my style has evolved over the years and come to a conclusion…
I’m a lot like Goldilocks.
Oh sure, my hair is brown and I’m…ahem…slightly older but other than that we are just alike! 😉
You see, Goldilocks had to try and try again to find just the right porridge, the right chair to sit in and the right bed to rest in. And I’ve had to try and try again to find just the right balance when it comes to decorating my home for fall.
It can’t be too fussy…maybe just some dried hydrangeas in an old wooden toolbox.
It can’t be too simple…I do love adding layers and layers to get just the right look.
Especially when it involves vintage silver trays and all sorts of sparkly fall goodness.
It might involve an easy craft like a Popcorn Kernel Wreath.
Or one that’s slightly more involved but worth the extra effort like this corn husk wreath.
I might have tried my hand at complicated centerpieces or table arrangements. But after trying and trying I keep coming back to the simple beauty of orange pumpkins in a silver bowl.
It just felt right.
It also felt right to hang a grapevine wreath on this large window pane.
And while in the past, I tried and tried to decorate this fireplace mantel with an abundance of fall-ishness, what feels the most right is the simplicity of my ode to the picket fence.
And three little pumpkins all in a row.
It’s taken many years…
…and like Goldilocks I’ve had to try many different types of “porridge”, “chairs” and “beds”…
But, in the end, I believe I’ve finally found my own “just right”.
Now, let’s head across the country to Heather’s home in beautiful Georgia!
As you have seen on here, we have recently moved to Georgia and have a brand new house to decorate and style! I gave you a tour of the before so I’m so excited to finally get to show you some of the rooms I have finished! So, welcome to our house down South…
I’m still loving my house numbers pumpkin topiary. It was so super easy to make and makes a big impact!
I purchased the vintage chicken feeder and burlap Welcome bag from one of my favorite stores in the area, Spoon Sisters! Filled with pumpkins and flowers they are fun variation from the typical fall front porch decor.
You might remember this piece that I spray painted and styled from bargains and thrift store finds!
I’m sharing a sneak peek of the next two rooms!
//DINING ROOM SNEAK PEEK//
Here’s a glimpse of my new dining room but, stay tuned next week for a full reveal of my fall dining room courtesy of Kirklands!
//LIVING ROOM SNEEK PEEK//
The living room is up next on my list of rooms to finish, but here’s a little peek at the bar area and a glimpse of me new blue and white chairs…can we say “in love!”
One of the first rooms I wanted to get set up in our new house was our guest room! We knew that we would have lots of friends and family come to visit and wanted a nice place for them to rest and relax!
I went with a simple blue and white color scheme in this room which pairs nicely with the mahogany furniture we inherited from my in-laws. It’s been in the family since they were married, and we are so privileged to be able to use it in our home.
If you’ve been following my projects lately, you know I’m crushing on gold! If it sits still long enough, I guild it…these little pumpkins on our breakfast table were no exception.
In my family room I went in a completely different direction than our previous house with bright pops of color against a canvas of white. By choosing neutral foundational pieces I can change out accessories as the seasons change…or when I get tired of them. grin.
I hope you’ve enjoyed some of the room reveals in my new home! We have several more in the works like our Alabama game room, our master bedroom, my office and our living room…so stay tuned!
