Fall Home Tour 2016

Welcome to my blog "I don't know how she does it" and thank you for joining us today in the Harvest Haven Fall Tour 2016, hosted by Summer from "She Leaves A Little Sparkle". I'm so happy to have you here visiting from Zabrina's amazing blog "Z Design at Home". So make yourself comfortable and feel free to grab a PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte) or cappuccino which I've made with love.
During this season I usually love decorating with neutrals, but this year I went a bit out of my comfort zone and stared adding some colors but still with that warm feeling that I love so much about a neutral palette.

At the porch I was able to add an urn planter that I've had for a while with a bright and iconic Mum. Since this area is small, I opted for grapevine pumpkins because of their light appearance. A small swag of preserved fall leaves I found at HomeGoods decorates my favorite nook in this 1938 house along a BHG Crossbar Metal Lantern I found at Walmart.
On our recently painted door I placed last year's wreath which I updated it with bright foam apples, pears and some real and silk leaves. The contrast it makes against the yellow wall is amazing, wouldn't you agree?

This Everett foyer table I bought a while back at World Market is the perfect size and it's really the first thing that greets my guests. I like changing it's look throughout the seasons always making sure it gives my visitors a warm welcome.

Our living room also had its dose of warm colors with suede pillows in ocher, hunter green and gold colors over the our Gordon Tufted Sofa from Home Decorators Collection. Again you can see how I managed to create areas of interesting contrast by playing with bright and dark colors. The flowers over the coffee also play an important role because they also add to the cozy and warm atmosphere I wanted to create.

Over our mantel I kept things simple with textural elements in wood, but also added color by gathering some mix small foam pumpkins. Inside of our fireplace which has never been used since we moved here (and who needs it in Miami), I placed the Galiana Candelabra I found also at Walmart. At nights I love siting here and enjoy a quiet moment of comforting and relaxation.

Setting the dinner table is always my favorite part specially during the holidays. This time I use a touch of metallic with some copper and golden accessories just to add a bit of elegance on the setting. Also I added some vintage inspired vases I found a while ago at Pottery Barn. Their Tuscan Terra Cotta collection is my favorite and mixing these surfaces with the metallic elements, brought another interesting contrast to our dinner table. Accessories like candles holders, a menu, whimsical napkin rings, and pumpkins as decorative elements did all the difference when styling.

Moving along to our kitchen, I took the liberty of preparing on our Breville Barista Express Espresso machine a fresh cappuccino just for you. This area is our coffee station and depending on the season, I like adding small accessories that will give you a hint of what we're celebrating. A simple wreath made with a metal hanger and a maple leaves garland from Joann makes that special statement over our Birch Lane blackboard. I also added some small ceramic pumpkin serving bowls with the cute copper accent on the top. I have to confess, this is my favorite area in the kitchen!

As you can see you caught me in the middle of some cookie baking and I'm using these super cute cooper cookie cutters from HomeGoods. The cookies will be ready in no time, so please feel free to wait for them; and while you do so, take a peek at those wooden and concrete pumpkins over our window sill. Simple is my middle name and these guys are all I need to bring in that autumnal.

We are finishing up one of our sitting areas with a new pergola, so I hope you can come by again and sit with us to enjoy the weather here in Miami this time of the year. Thank you so much for keeping me company and I hope you've enjoyed my home as much as I did styling it. Now, don't forget that this tour continues with Jennifer's beautiful home at "Decor Gold Designs". Here's the list of all the talents included in this Harvest Haven Fall Tour 2016:
