It’s time for a fall home tour! Are you ready for the Welcoming Fall Home Tour? Today I’m throwing opening the doors at StoneGable and welcoming you in to see the front half of my home decked out for fall! Our tour features warm and cozy and fall inspired decor. And you will see lots of that here! So, let’s get started…
Today on our podcast Decorating Tips And Tricks we are talking about LESSONS IN COLOR THAT WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU DECORATE. I think everyone who loves to decorate should learn about color. It will make decorating so much easier and give your home a beautiful cohesive look!

A big fall W E L C O M E to you if you are coming from LIFE ON VIRGINIA STREET. I’m so glad you stopped by! Sarah’s home is BEAUTIFUL and serene. Oh, I wish my office could be as neat as her’s!
I’m sharing the front part of StoneGable. It’s my living room, foyer, and dining room. This part of our home is very bright and sunlight pours in through the large windows.
Let’s start our fall tour in the living room. As you can see there are lots of windows! Even on the most cloudy day, this room is bright!
For fall, I added some rusts and yellows and gray. The fall elements in my home mimic what I see outside. Lots of organics (or faux organics).
There is such a decor “dance” going on in the front part of my home! I live in a farmhouse that is a bit formal. And if left to my own natural tendencies I decorate a bit on the classic, if not formal, side! However, I love my rooms to look a bit lived in and welcoming.
I call this style refined farmhouse. It’s a comfortable mix of refined and a tad rustic.
Cozy! You can usually find our cat Hobbes sitting on the back of the sofa snuggled in the throws. He must have been out mousing when I took these pictures.
With each new season, I add a couple pillow to my ever growing pillow collection. This year I fell in love with a big, tribal motif, embroidered pillow from Pottery Barn. I thought it gave a nod to the autumnal season without being too pumpkiny.
And I added a complimentary plaid throw to my sofa too!
Next week I’ll be sharing the best pillow I’ve found for fall, including the ones on my sofa.
I dare say we have the prettiest mums here in Lancaster County! My fall decorating would not be complete without them. Driving along many of the country roads I can see fields and fields of mums!
Instead of a vignette in the basket on the coffee table, I added a big mum in a large white bowl.
Many decorators shy away from orange. I LOVE it! I think orange looks best when added to a room that has a lot of white in it. And using orange very judiciously will make it POP!
Another pop of orange. The velvet pumpkin is fall perfection! You can see how I used my gorgeous Love Feast Shop velvet pumpkins HERE. And you can see more about them HERE. Each velvet pumpkin is truly a work of art!
Don’t forget to decorate with baskets filled with soft pillows and warm throws.
The foyer sits between the living room and the dining room and that is where we will move our fall tour! It’s large and open and I love to decorate it for each season! But fall is by far my favorite!
Here’s what you see when you walk in the front door of StoneGable. For those of you with “eagle eyes” you will notice the track of my stair chair. I am still in an aircast for most of the day and still have difficulty walking up stairs. It’s a slow road but I’m getting better!
I lit the candles in this part of my home so in some of the images you will see the candles glowing.
The red maple branches are from the trees that line our croquet lawn. Red maples are one of the first trees to show off their beautiful autumn colors!
Here is a picture standing in the dining room by the bar cart looking into the foyer and living room. Thought you would like to see this perspective.
The last stop on our fall tour is our dining room
The dining room at StoneGable has been featured in magazines more than any other room in my home. It’s a happy mix of classic neutrals, upscale decor, and farmhouse charm. It is a DIY and thrifted room if there ever was one! We have laid hardwood floors, painted the walls, refitted the chippy shutters, installed the chandy, painted the sideboard, upholstered and painted chairs, made slipcovers from painters drop cloths and found lots of items from vintage and antique shops!
The rug is actually an indoor/outdoor rug and it has held up wonderfully! The concrete table was our splurge a couple years ago. And I have not regretted it for one second!
The dining room is also the room with the most light. I’d have a glass house if I could. I love lots of windows and light!
For a bit of whimsy the word “F A L L” is written in big block letters across the dining room table.
The lantern is filled with an urn full of cut brambles. I love finding bits and pieces of organics to stick in little vases and containers. I should have a bumper sticker on the back of my car that reads, “This car stops for sticks and twigs”.
The feathers in the pottery jar and creamer on the buffet were from several pheasants my son in law Jonathan got on a hunting trip! We love pheasant but not the buck shot!
Here’s looking from the living room through the foyer and into the dining room.
Thank you so much for stopping by StoneGable. I hope I have given you lots of ideas and fall inspiration!
Now, please stop by my dear friend Lidy from FRENCH GARDEN HOUSE. Her home is swoon-worthy and she is the sweetest! I’m sure you are in for quite a fall treat!
