Taking you on a home tour of Jodie’s Gorgeous fall home tour
Welcome to my Fall Home Tour! I’m Jodie, one half of the twin blogging team, “The Design Twins.” Yes, Julie and I are twins (technically identical). We’re so happy you’ve joined us today for some awesome fall inspiration. Today we are sharing my fall home all decorated for the season. I’m also excited to share some of the DIY projects I’ve completed recently. I hope it will inspire you to create your own welcoming fall decor. Come on in.
Fall Home Tour: Front Porch
Mums and pumpkins are really all you need to create a delightful seasonal fall porch. Arrange things artfully by using bales of hay, baskets, and crates. I always wish I had stairs to create visually interesting levels. But if your front porch is without stairs like mine you can create a variety of levels with these items.
Fall Home Tour: Living Room
We live in sunny California, so when the sun is out this is what this corner of my living room looks like. We don’t do anything in this part of the room except gaze at our pipe shelf project that we are so proud of. This is also a perfect picture to highlight the Drop Cloth Curtains I made. And the best part? There’s no sewing required.
And speaking of pipe shelves, here she is with subtle touches of fall. I like neutrals, as you can see, and you can see this shelf tells a neutral story, no matter what the season. I hand painted those terra cotta pots last year, and they keep showing up in all sorts of places. Gotta love chalk paint.
Fall Home Tour: Our Great Room
This is my favorite spot to photograph because of all the windows. I repurposed those four frames (that used to house baby pics) and created this little wall collage with free printable botanicals. I change up the wreath for Christmas but this is my favorite. Boxwood is my jam. What else do I love? Texture, natural elements, and more texture.
This console table from Pottery Barn is another perennial favorite of mine. Add fresh flowers and seasonal color and bam! I have a whole new look for my fall home.
Last Christmas Julie gifted me this chandelier. We picked it out together, and it was a win. It completely transformed the space. I set the table with my Deruta hand-painted Italian pottery which was our wedding “china.” I love how the colors go so perfectly with the rich colors of fall.
Fall Home: DIY Fall Crafts
Remember what I said about the sun? Yup. Well, it’s better than taking pics in the dark, but this is what the picture looks like when you take it with a camera phone. Let’s just call it “artistic.” I added a few of my DIY Vintage Inspired Painted Pumpkins and the vignette is complete.
This is where you can really see the impact my chandelier makes on the room. There’s nothing fancy in here, but it is very cozy. As you can see, my fall home is created with a soft, neutral palette, plenty of pumpkins and natural elements.
Fall Home: Dining Room
My dining room also deserves a before/after because it has changed so much in the past year. It is very much a work in progress, but I’m enjoying the process. Stay tuned!
Fall Home: The Fireplace
Here is my most recent home improvement project which highlights two separate updates to my fireplace. First was the addition of Stikwood to the upper part of the fireplace. Stikwood is an amazing product that allows a novice and non-tool-owner like myself to create a wood wall in a matter of hours.
The second improvement was the addition of this incredible floating shelf which created a mantel for the previous flat façade of my fireplace. The folks at @302woodworks were amazing to work with. Be sure to check out their Etsy shop.
Thanks for taking the Fall Tour with me!
You know what is just around the corner…so let’s sip our Pumpkin Spice Lattes while we can and just enjoy!
Even though it’s early spring I still enjoyed reading and viewing your fall home tour. The fireplace project was a great transformation. That stick wood is great stuff and really looks like shiplap ????????
Thanks for all the inspiration, Patti
Julie and Jodie-
I love that you didn’t go over board with the fall decor. This is just so beautiful in its simplicity. I just love a Japanese lantern plant and I like the pumpkins and the greens in the basket. I’m gonna do that this year. Thanks again for all your ideas and tips. ????????
Just stumbled onto your blog and did the home tours. Your taste resonated with me and I pinned many Christmas pictures. Thank you.
Brenda, We are delighted you enjoyed our tours and even happier you found some photos to pin. We always appreciate that! We certainly home you will continue to enjoy well into the future. Blessings and Happy New Year, Jodie & Julie

Loved the front porch and fall tour. Simple yet not overstated. Your house looks so good Jodie. Beautiful job.
Everything looks beautiful Jodie! I was surprised at first, since you usually use more color, but I like the soft hues and colors you used this year, very pretty!

I love this look, I usually go with all the orange, sunflowers, etc. But this year I want that subtle vibe in the home. Leaving the old decor for outside, I have been making pumpkins and painting old pumpkins in the blues, off white and a lighter orange persimmon color.
Dana, Love your ideas. So glad you enjoyed Jodie’s fall home tour. She was extra happy with how it all turned out. We love hearing from you! All the best, Julie & Jodie
