Some fall pictures of our new house.....

Here's an out of order shot of how the cabinets used to look like....I can't figure out how to move it.....ha ha!

It's that time FAVORITE time of the year!! I get such a rush when fall comes around each year....I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the colors, the smells, the weather, the clothes!!!! I just love how cozy our house feels when I put out my fall decorations....I stretch it out for as long as I can....ha! When we bought this house I really wanted to change things up color wise....I brought in a bunch of grey and I couldn't be happier with the results....I still love a lot of my brown things and they really look different with the grey colors I have going on, so it's been a good change!

I love the orange against the grey walls....the living/dining room has all of my black and white stuff too....


Corner of the living room.....the white couch against the grey walls is awesome!

A new addition....when I was visiting Jade in UT for her opera we of course shopped at Down East Home and I found this ottoman for less than 50's grey, but the color was off a little with the other greys I had in the house, so I knew I wanted to cover it somehow and this is what I have so far....FUR!!!!! I can't believe how much I love it! The texture is so great and I'm going to staple it down to make it look more's one of my favorite things and such a great bargain!

My good old piano. And you can see the roman shades that I bought for all the windows downstairs....I'm still trying to figure out what to do with curtains.....but, I really like the simplicity of the shades. The shades definitely took a big chunk of my decorating budget, but I am so pleased with how they look.


Entryway......with my HUGE "B"!!!

Houndstooth chairs and I put the settee in the dining room and I think they coordinate nicely!

This is the great's a little challenging with furniture placement, but it's getting there!

Little dough table from Germany....I don't really love it here....but, we couldn't really fit it anywhere else and it's too great to stick it upstairs somewhere!

This is "Dewey"!! You either hate or love it....and I super-duper LOVE it! No one really quite gets why I love it, but I'm okay with that! I think it's quirky and little unexpected....ha ha!

Here is our new sectional....I took this picture when I was getting ready for the baby shower I hosted, so that is why there are balloons hanging from the ceiling! But, you can see how the downstairs flows in this shot....and you can also see the kitchen cabinets that I had re-done! By far the best thing I did in this house! I love the two-tone and I love the hardware!! Best money I spent if you ask me!!

Fall bookcase!

I've had the pumpkin pictures for at least 10 years! I cut them out of a book!

Cool herb crates and a closer shot of the upper cabinets.

My tried and true gourds!! I usually don't like clutter on top of cabinets, but I love how simple they look and it was a new way to use them this year!

Anyway, that is a little sampling of our new house! I can't wait to do everything else that I have planned, but I'm just going to do a little at a time.....can't blow my budget!

Awesome! It's just beautiful and the colors are perfect. You are such a decorator. Makes me hang my head in shame. Need more pics of the other rooms, OK? Thanks for all the recent posts. Please keep it up. Kelly is here and saw these too but she says my computer is too slow to comment. It's doing just fine for me.

The computer WAS too slow to comment, mom. I'm used to some POWER in a computer! Kayla, the house looks great. I love the accessories. I need to come shop your house. I'm getting tired of my junk! haha Let's get to posting more- I want to see how you've decorated the rooms. BTW, could you imagine not having a place of your own to decorate? Wouldn't that be the worst??
