Fall Home Tour

 

findingfallhometoursfinal21

Hello friend.

I am so glad you are here.

Yep.

You….the one drinking the coffee or the hot tea or the diet coke or eating the blueberry muffin.

If you are visiting from Julia’s….nice to meet you.

I’m karianne….the one drinking pumpkin spice coffee with red lipstick on.

Are you ready?

Let’s get this fall tour started!

Can I say from the outset….I had this brilliant idea for the tour today.

Truly.

I wasn’t even going to write anything.

Can you even believe it?

Just picture after picture….scrolling through….without all the bother of a really good story.

It was going to be the silent film of fall home tours.

But a blog post without talking?

Seriously.

I mean….really….is this me saying this?

What was I thinking?

Are you nodding your head?

So I’m compromising.

A few more pictures….and a little less talking.

I’m simply going to count my blessings….

….all the way through rest of the fall decorating.

Just to keep you company. :)

  31. You have a beautiful home, and you’ve made it even more gorgeous, I think I’ve pinned every picture for inspiration :D

  32. Very pretty, Karianne! Thanks for the tour!

  33. Gorgeous tour! I was going to ask if you meant “upwind” from the chicken barn, but then you added stinky socks…. ;)

  34. Absolutely perfect – love every detail! I will be over in an hour for coffee! Thanks so much friend for being part of this! YOU are the rockstar!!!!!!!!

  35. I love everything! That spiderweb is so cool! Thank you for sharing your beautiful fall Kentucky home! I’m so thankful for YOU! Enjoy the season!

  36. Oh my child! just when I think you can’t blown my mind any more – BOOM! There it goes again. Absolutely just beautiful. I just ask my husband if I could change our whole house to black / white/creams. He said “well that will be a lot of work.” But whatever. He’s wonderful. That’s what happens when you retire, most anything goes.

  37. Karianne,
    Silent film of home tours- haha you made a funny! Ok, so of course I Love every single photo but my mind went bonkers when I spotted the pom-pom throw!!!!!!!!!! Oh am I a nut for pom-poms. I have a king size bed ruffle with pom-poms and I absolutely adore it. Kitty likes to mess with it at times but I use fabric glue to put it back in place.
    I say: More pom-poms!!

  38. Any excuse for me and coffee to walk through your home KariAnne. Luvly as always.One of my faves!!!
    :-) Hugs, Gee

  39. Ther you go, showing up EVERYONE:):) It is all beautiful! As always. I do disagree about ONE thing; I am NOT thankful for an acre of leaves as we have to rake, plow, shovel, blow and haul them all to the woods:(:( NOT Fall fun at all, especially when I had hoped and prayed the darn house would be SOLD by now…… XO

  40. Karianne,
    I cannot get enough of your beautiful home. So so pretty and inviting. Thank you for sharing all your lovely pictures with us. It looks so cozy and pretty for fall.

  41. Suzanne of Simply Suzannes at Home

    Hi KariAnne,

    Your home is decorated beautifully for Fall.
    I adore the pumpkins you have on your front porch . . . and my favorite photo is the one that has the large Farmers’ Market sign above the the bowl of apples. September and the beginning of October is the perfect time of year to celebrate apples.
    Thanks so much for sharing.
    You’ve inspired me!
    Have a beautiful week,
    Suzanne

  42. So soothing and homey, KariAnne. And I’m thankful for you :)

    Hugs, Zolane

  43. It’s a beautiful space KariAnne, thanks for sharing. I loved hearing all the little things you’re thankful for….

  44. Wow.
    I have to tell you – I am the kind of girl who generally sees things that other people do in their houses and I want to do the exact opposite. I’m just difficult that way.
    I just love your house. I love the style and the color scheme – so much. I am in the process of trying to move my house into that kind of calm ad serene feeling – and I just love looking at what you’ve done and accomplished. It’s like taking a deep breath.
    Thanks for the inspiration, KariAnne.
    Breida

  45. Oh wow. You had better talk!! Okay so do you have an assistant (poor Cinderella) you boss around to make all your (her?!!) ideas?? In your red lipstick and you are watching Martha on TV and you’re busy checking for lipstick on your teeth as she rips off the wood paper backing on the shelves and she feeds those chickens at the neighbors chicken coop for she secretly is saving her chicken egg money for red lipstick….
    I’m just teasing you because I’m a bit envious you are done and its so pretty!!! But envy is a root into evil and I don’t want that so instead ill turn to praise. Praise You Lord for a creative person who willingly creates masterpieces in her home that she shares with us for free. You have given her a humble spirit. A joyful spirit that brings me delight in amidst a season of well You know Lord. Thank you Lord for her photography abilities so that we get even better visions of ideas for creating a home where You are the center. I do not feel envy Lord. I feel delight and joy and a bright spirit when I open to read these fun and visually appealing posts . Bless Ms Lipstick of Red with peace and rest. Amen
    Happy soon to be fall!

  46. Christina from Dallas :

    I just love your fall decorating. How do you ever keep your beautiful house so clean with all of the cream and white? I have to say that your pictures take my breath away. Your house is so lovely.

  47. Karianne, just when I think it can’t get more wonderful, you get more wonderful! LOVE your fall vignettes, and I’m going to pin much of your posts tonight! Thanks for the inspiration,
    -Revi

  48. Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous.

  49. Loved this post. Love every picture and every decoration. Absolutely gorgeous. Want to live there!!! Loved your thankful remarks. My Mom used to teach Sunday school to small children. One Thanksgiving she asked each child to tell something they were thankful for. Of course each child was saying, my Mama, My bicycle,etc. till one child said I am thankful for mayonnaise. So cute.

  50. As much as I love decorating for Christmas, I almost think I ENJOY Fall decorating more! It just FITS my house, and is such a palate-cleanser from summer!!

    Beautiful, KariAnne!

  51. Oh how lovely your home is in it’s fall decor. Everything is perfect Kerianne. Thanks you so much for sharing your lovely home.
    Mary

  52. Breathtaking, absolutely breathtaking! I swooned after every single photo! Your style is amazing Karianne!!! You need to design your own home furnishings/accessories line, because I would buy everything single thing if you did!!!
    xoxo
    Karen

  53. As always, love your style. You got it gurl….. just glad you choose to share it with us! I’m thinking of painting my kitchen. I’ve been leaning towards color. Lots of color. Each time you show your LOVELY kitchen, it makes me rethink my color and lean more towards white. I’ll still have to have some cobalt blue splashes, but think that I’m going to have to go white. I’m also seriously leaning toward butcher block countertops. I’m thinking that might the ticket for this tomato red hot mess I’m working with now!

  54. KariAnne, your pictures are stunning! Thank you for the inspiration.
    Diane

  55. I’m thankful for you KariAnne!

  56. KariAnne, this was a beautiful post. I am thankful for most of those fall things. Not the smelly socks, though, that would a bit much for me since it would be husband, LOL!!! Your decorating took my breath away as usual. Such beautiful fall touches. Your are one talented lady and may I add funny!!

    Cynthia

  57. Absolutely stunning and gorgeous! Thanks for your sharing with us!

  58. Interest and beauty is everywhere! I really enjoyed my time here this afternoon. I love your style, KariAnne.

  59. You outdid yourself!! I’ve never seen your home look so lovely and welcoming.

  60. You just rock it Karianne! A visit to your blog without a good story just wouldn’t be the same. I love your stories and all your corny jokes. Looking at your photos is way…….better than looking at my home decor magazines. Your photography and styling is absolutely stunning! Sure wish I could come over and enjoy some of those fresh eggs with morning coffee, lipstick on our mugs and a few hearty laughs! Boy, could I learn some lessons from you. The kids silhouettes on the pumpkins is magnificent!

  61. Rockstar!!! I am loving that little spider guy! Send him my way, adorable :) Sweet tour!

  62. As always, your home leaves me in awe. It is so very beautiful.
    Loved the tour!

  63. No, YOU are the ROCK STAR! You never cease to amaze me with your ingenuity! I picked up a magazine today and you were in it! (Holiday Cottage!)

    One of your biggest fans!
    ~Jane

  64. Holy Mother of Pearl!! So beautiful! Really beyond words! Thank you for sharing!

  65. So famous! Guest posting here, there and e very where. You’re so fabulous this year. Your house looks great. But then again, I’d have to check to see if your forehead was hot if it didn’t . Maybe once you help me get my crap together, you can guest post on my blog, with it’s numerous 22 followers. For some reason, it just makes me feel all giggly thinking of you galavanting around your house, distributing pumpkins merrily hither and yon.

  66. This has inspired me to start my Fall decorating. I love all of your dried florals.

  67. My first time here and I must say you have a GORGEOUS home!! I love it and have found so much inspiration through your photos!! Thank You!

  68. I wish that we were neighbors. I would bring your a pretty little pumpkin, with tag hanging from a piece of twine….and sneak a peek at all of that loveliness. I am thankful that we are web neighbors though. ;) Beautiful….as always Sweet Lady. :) ~k.

  69. This is so perfect and inviting. Deserves to be in a magazine. I love the JOY letters. Did you make them?

  75. As always, beautiful. I posted about the little I’ve done to celebrate fall, and it is nothing compared to yours. So, of course, I had to link back to your blog so that they can see that the fall decorations can actually look lovely. I’m definitely a bit jealous of your style.

  76. Oh that was lovely and cozy and now I just want to sit by the fire with a cup of tea.

    Annie XO

  84. everything is gorgeous as usual! Happy fall my rock star friend!!!

  85. Do you have any acorns for sale ?;)

  86. Wow, what an amazing fall tour, Karianne! I shared this on my FB page this week. You are a rock star!
    Big hugs,
    Jamie @ somuchbetterwithage.com

  87. I’d not met you before and am I loving your style … both in home decor (your home is beautiful) AND you, yourself (loved how and what you wrote).

  88. Karianne everything looks so beautiful and inviting. I had been trying to brainstorm on a garland for out mantle and was at a loss. You have inspired me!:)

  89. This is a knockout tour. Literally, I feel like you knocked the wind out of my stomach with the beauty, the whimsy, the warmth, the story, the gratitude. God has given you such gifts as a storyteller, photographer, designer, blogger, and liver of life! You are a rare bird, Karianne, and I think the world of you!

  90. I just wondered what time is check-in and do you take Canadian money at par :) ! Such a beautiful home, you are so talented!

  91. Hi Karianne! I loved, loved, loved your fall home tour :) And as much as the pictures, I LOVED your counting your blessings. You are such a joy to read!

  92. Love every single thing. And, love you, too.♥

  93. So beautiful! LOVE your home and your counted blessings! Life to the full! Melissa

  94. Fab.u.lous! I love everything but most of all the front porch. :)

  95. Thank you for all the beautiful and inspiring pics, you are a DELIGHT!!!

  96. Many of the chicken delicacies are also possible to be made by mixing some spices with other
    daily use items such as coconut, loaf, onion, garlic,
    mushroom, etc. Basically the salads are healthy with low calories most commonly found on
    every dining table in US. Waldorf salad is one such salad that is an amalgamation of celery,
    apples, walnuts, and mayonnaise.

  97. Great pics and so thankful for all the gorgeous inspiration.

  98. After going over a handful of the articles on your
    web page, I really like your way of blogging. I saved as a favorite it to my
    bookmark site list and will be checking back soon. Please check out
    my website too and let me know what you think.

  99. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I
    was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with
    hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.

    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  100. Oh my goodness! Woods cannot begin to describe what I’m thinking… totally inspired!

  101. Thank you for the auspicious writeup. It in fact was
    a amusement account it. Look advanced to more added agreeable from you!
    However, how can we communicate?
