Fall Simplicity Tour

Hi friends!  Welcome to my first fall home tour of the year with Marty of A Stroll Thru Life!  This is always one of my favorite tours every season and I am so thankful to Marty to be invited each season as a tour participant but I’m also thankful to have you visiting again in this new season of hope!

I also want to give you a huge welcome if you are coming over from my cute friend, Julia of Cuckoo 4 Design – her home is always so inspiring and is always one of my favorites on the tour so please pop back over to visit her if you haven’t had a chance yet!!

A Stroll Thru Life Fall Home Tour - ZDesign At Home

Instead of flooding you with lots of words and descriptions this year I’m mostly going to let the photos speak for themselves.  We live in Houston so the weather here is still hot and sticky.  We’ve had a lot of rain of late but it has been a nice relief at times to the heat.  My tour is super simple this year with minimal changes and additions for fall, again due to the extreme heat we are still experiencing but you will notice some subtle changes and hopefully enjoy the tour!

Fall Living Room

This fun faux fur stool always reminds me of cooler weather so I pulled it back out for fall but we also switched out the rug to this new natural woven rug for the new season and are loving it!  You can read more about the new rug and why we made the change HERE.   Of course a white pumpkin candle is always in order for fall and this greenery grows wild around where we live so I’ll be keeping it around the house throughout for fall.  I especially love when it begins to bloom but unfortunately it’s not quite to that stage yet – soon though!

My absolute favorite part about this years tour is the new pillows!  I love nothing more than switching out pillows for an all new look each season and these are some of my favorite to date!

I really love the gold and black striped one, along with the blue medallion one.  I got the gold stripe it in a 20×20 and in a lumbar size and the medallion one in a 22×22.

Really also love this blue patterned one in front here…

And of course extra layers were added with old favorites.  I always love pulling out my dark gray, fringe throw this time of year!

The opposite side of the space got minimal updates as well.  Simple greenery and if you remember from late summer a favorite abstract art piece was moved to over the TV.  I did add this fun new basket with a throw for those extra layers when needed and a few accessories atop my coffee table books (decorative bowl | wooden beads).

Still can’t get enough of this new boho chic lamp.  It’s a large piece and makes such a nice statement in the room!

And this basket is too cute.  Love the circle pattern and the texture it brings to the space for fall!

I also moved my blue pouf in here.  I finally found a new source for it if you’ve been looking for one.  Love the added texture and pop of color it brings to the space…

Moving on to the dining space…an addition of a basket on the table with some favorite black and white dishes that I’m loving right now and, a simple white Magnolia Home pitcher with greenery from outside are all this spot needs for a fall update.

Pulled out this throw from past seasons (similar here).  Can never get enough of the fringe and tassels on this one.  I sit here a lot to work so this throw actually does get used a ton!

Late summer I moved this oversized art piece into the space and love the personality and color it brings to the space, along with the wool rug which will be nice to have underfoot this fall and winter.

I had some beautiful hydrangeas left over from summer that landed here so not very fallish but beautiful none the less…I’m sure more fall updates are coming to this spot soon.  Love this new simple glass and brass lamp though in this spot!  It allows the bar cabinet to steal the show:).  Still loving this round rattan mirror in this spot too which does feel a hint fallish with the texture and color.

  2. Bree- as always…stunning. I love the addition of the new rug and the texture it adds. That new basket is similar to the other rug choice, it may be a sign to keep the other rug too!

  5. Your fall makeover looks amazing as always. I loved the art piece over the TV (something I’ve done at home as well many years ago) and the pillow combination on your sofa is probably the best I’ve seen so far. Bravo! Best wishes, Velvet.

    1. Velvet, thank you so very much for stopping in! Your words always make me so happy! so fun doing this tour with you again!! Happy fall! xoxo

  6. I love all of the cozy layers and those pillows are amazing! It must be hard to start thinking about fall in that heat, but you’ve done a wonderful job of just adding a few fall touches here and there.

    1. Jennifer, thank you so much and yes! It is so hard with the heat here. Thanks for stopping in!! xoxo

    1. Laura you are so sweet! Thank you for stopping by and for loving my new pillows too – they’re some of my favorites to date!! xoxo

  7. I like the nod to fall. All the textures give that warm toasty feeling without a bunch of pumpkins, etc. I like a simple touch when it comes to seasonal decor and hit the mark here. It’s just the impetus to get me doing a few chances in my own home.

    1. Joanna, thank you so much for your kind words. I have to just ease into fall unlike others (I wish I could just hop right on the pumpkin train like everyone else but it’s so hard for me:). I really appreciate you stopping by and I’m so glad I inspired you to get moving a little on your own home!! xoxo

  8. You have such a chic and sophisticated style! Loving all your blue decor. The little stool is a perfect fall touch too!
    So happy to be on this fall tour with you. Have a great fall!
