our Fall porch

 Happy Fall!

Tomorrow I am sharing our Fall home tour, but today I wanted to share with you our Fall porch.

If you are interested in where I purchased any items used, I will do a roundup at the bottom of this post.

I left the Nandina in the large pots year round. But I do change out the smaller pots seasonally.

This year I did these pinkish purple mums as well as some cabbages. 

I love the subtle color they both bring to the space. 

I also pick up gourds and pumpkins whenever I am at the grocery store. 

Trader Joes had some cinderella pumpkins last time I was there. They are fun to stack on top of each other to add height to a space. 

I doubled up our doormat to add some interest. 

I also really fell in love with these galvanized pumpkins.

I added battery operated candles to them and the glow they create at night is so welcoming.

This really didn't take much time or effort.

A few pumpkins, some fun accessories, a welcome mat, seasonal flowers, and you are set!

Friday favorites

  Happy Friday! 

Where did this week go? 

Everyday has been jam packed from morning to night, so busy but so good.

I feel like I have a ton to share with you this week. 

I found so many fun things and I hope you like them as much as I do.

I don't know about you, but I feel like there's always a point, once or twice a year that I feel like my house looks blah and I want to change things up drastically. That is me right now. 

So, I have been searching, saving, pinning, and printing out ideas like there's no tomorrow. 

Also, how many of you follow me on Instagram?

I made it my new years resolution to post more story content, with my face, but haven't done that. For those of you that follow me on Instagram, is this something you'd like to see?

Cement or cement look coffee tables are on my mind right now. For indoors or out, love them. I wonder how hard it would be to DIY one? This one is beautiful.

Totally loving these candlesticks.

Also these vases. {on sale!}

This pouf is a great neutral option for extra seating, or tucked under a console table.

Another set of great candle holders.

These sculptural bowls and vase would be gorgeous as shelf decor all on their own. They are on sale too!

Holding onto summer with this beachy art print, and this one. 

These hurricanes are in my cart. One of each color.

And finally a photo from one of my favorites, Public 311 Design.

our coffee station for Fall


Today I want to share with you a space that gets a ton of use in our kitchen, our coffee nook!

Especially this time of year when it gets cooler outside, a warm chai tea or pumpkin spice latte sound extra good.

Our coffee station for fall is very simple. 

Just the necessities like coffee syrups and ground beans. 

But I also added in a couple items to give it that warm and cozy feel.

Adding in faux leaves or stems, even real ones instantly add that Fall feel when they are in earth tones.

I really played up on the gold this year adding in this tray  to tie in the syrup bottles. 

The gold adds a warmth to the space as well.

The green pumpkin is a small touch but makes a big impact because of the color.

I found this cutie at the Dollar Tree believe it or not.

I love having fresh baked scones or muffins on hand. 

Some of my favorite recipes are linked below.

I bake in large batches and freeze a lot so that I always have some on hand.

The coffee book ties in all the colors and is a fun touch to add to any coffee station/bar.

how to style your shelves for Fall

Styling shelves for different seasons can be so fun.

Today I am going to show you how I styled my shelves and coffee table for Fall.

I like to keep things simple and not add too much. 

Little bits of fall can be added to your shelves with branches from your yard, faux florals or stems, mini pumpkins, bundles of wheat, a stack of books, etc.

If you like to go all out and decorate with more, more power to you!

For me I like to have the Fall decor and colors blend in with what I already have in the room rather than compete with it. 

I fell in love with these faux stems, and I am not even really a faux plant person. They just have such a fun color and texture to them. I think I have 9 stems in my vase to create a really full look.

Vase was a lucky find at HomeGoods.

Adding some texture in with wooden beads is always fun too. I like to think texture and colors over mass produced Fall items.

I have had these leather pumpkins for years and I use them every year without fail.

I kept my shelf styling to a minimum color palette of black, white, creams, and grey.

I did get these soft green linen pillows for Fall which I love. 

They add just the right amount of texture and color in this room.

Pillows are the easiest way to change the look and feel of a room, and they are always so cozy looking.

I got the other ones from this shop which you will LOVE!

So that turned into maybe more of a living room tour over fall shelf styling, but I think it's important to have it all cohesive.

How about some more fall decorating ideas?

a rustic yet modern home tour

I don't even know how I stumbled across Timothy Godbold's page, but I am so happy I did. 

And if you haven't seen his work, I am delighted to show it to you here! 

This is just one job, make sure you see all of them, you'll be on your computer all day looking at all the pretty pictures from this talented designer. 

This one caught my eye because it fits my style the most I'd say. 

Or at least what I would want me style to be!

I love all the contrast, dare I even say, the colors?!


xoxo, Melaine
