It's one of my favorite weeks of the year... another round of Blogger Stylin' Home Tours! Many thanks to Lindsay at The White Buffalo Styling Co. for hosting this tour. If you're coming over from Britt Kingery, welcome!
If you're visiting for the first time today, let me introduce myself. I'm Jennifer and I live in Edmond, Oklahoma, where my husband is a Baptist minister, and we have two teenagers, a son (dimples) and a daughter (tangles) . I adore bold color and mixing patterns, get excited about a great Craigslist score, and am not afraid to get my hands dirty with a DIY project.
I shared Part 1 of our Fall Tour a few weeks ago, but I've switched a few things up since then so I'm sharing a few of the spaces again, and I'll share our patio all decked out for Fall today. Previously I had some Monstera leaves in the Entry, but they finally bit the dust so I replaced them with a fresh arrangement of bargain flowers and branches trimmed from a tree in our yard.
I didn't do much to the shelves in the Living Room except add a few sugar pinecones to the mix. I also found a new lamp that's the perfect size for this spot at Gordmans. They were kind enough to allow me to pick out a few new things for my tour. I love adding lamps in bookshelves when possible! I couldn't find it online but they have so much more available in store anyway. I've found some treasures there over the years, including the lamps above on the mantel right now.
I tweaked the styling on the antique chest as well. I wanted to add a lamp when I originally styled the top, but any of my lamps with drum shades just covered up too much of the bird prints. I found this one at Gordmans too, and it's just right to add some light while not taking up much visual space. It was originally oil-rubbed bronze which was a pretty finish, but with the dark chest and dark frames I needed a brighter color. A quick coat of my favorite gold spray paint saved the day!
I set a simple centerpiece on our kitchen table where we eat most often.
This is the first Fall that our patio has been completely finished, and I loved dressing it up for Fall. I added in some new green and blue plaid pillows with fabric from Hobby Lobby. The green ties in all of my green accents, but the plaid cozies things up for the season. I think most of this will carry right on through Christmas, too!
For the next stop on today's tour, I'd love for you to visit my friend Shannon Claire. I've always adored Shannon's style!
Thank you so much for joining me today! If you enjoyed today's tour, I would be absolutely thrilled if you would follow along!
