Blogger Stylin' Home Tours | Fall Home Tour

 Welcome to Eleven Gables "Blogger Stylin' Home Tours, Fall 2014" edition!  

If you are here from Retro Ranch Reno, I am so excited to have you!  Thank you, to the darling Lindsay of The White Buffalo Styling Co., for inviting me to be a part of this fun tour.   





This is our home, Eleven Gables.  We recently just endured a 16 month overhaul of the entire kitchen, laundry room/butler's pantry, porch, and exterior.  If you haven't seen those rooms, YOU MUST!




Our home is nestled in a quiet little community in Oklahoma.  It is filled with thrifted finds, antiques, hand-me-downs, DIY's, and craigslist scores.  As my favorite decorator, Charles Faudree, would say:  It's all about the mix.
I share our home in hopes that it will inspire you in one way or another.  If you drop by unexpectedly, I guarantee you it will not look like the pictures.  What you will see is a family enjoying life and living.  There will be socks on the floor and handprints on the wall and I can assure you that you will have to step over or move something at least once to get where you are going.  We are so grateful for our home.  Our prayer is that it blesses those who enter.  


I typically scatter white, ghost pumpkins throughout the landscape. It is still in the upper 80's, lower 90's for the temps here in Oklahoma and my pumpkin supplier (a.k.a. the cheapest place in town) hasn't received his shipment yet.  So, I am going to warm up the interior with some Fall decor and invite you in for a little peek!  



Welcome!

You all, these topiaries are FAUX!  I was so sick of buying new ones every year only for them to die or half-die.  I finally invested in these and I LOVE them!!

A french basket filled with wheat and burning bush stems hangs on the door.



The entryway:




This pumpkin was an offspring of last year's pumpkins that were set out in the field by my home.  We leave them there for the various critters to munch on during the winter months.  Cut and dried hydrangea from the landscape stays so pretty during the bleak winter months.



The Italian Florentine lamp was found thrifting in Kansas City years ago.  It has been waiting in my lamp stash for the perfect shade (yes, I hoard lamps... and chairs... I have a problem)
 I recovered this lampshade and added greek key trim on the inside for a fun surprise.  I used a tutorial from pinterest.


The dining room:



This pheasant comes out every Fall to grace my table.  My Dad is an avid hunter and gave this pheasant to my Grandma years ago.  When I got married, she gave it to me for my home.  On the off season, I let my son keep it in his room.



I keep contemplating painting this cabinet, but really, I am just hunting for the perfect french sideboard.



Pine cones, Antlers, Wheat, and Maples... a typical Oklahoma Fall!




Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows.... need I say more?



I always wanted a bundle of wheat like this, so this year I made my own.  It was painstaking to remove all the little spiky wisps from the ends, but I conquered it during various soccer practices.  This is four bundles of wheat from Hobby Lobby with the ends removed.
Preserved maple leaves add a touch of color while I wait patiently for our maples to change color.



The burlap pumpkins are from Target this year! 



A butler's tray makes the perfect drink station for yummy cocktails!  Come back when the weather cools and I will share our delicious go-to beverage for a chilly Fall day.




This view is looking in to the living room on the left and entryway on the right.  The walls aren't really yellow, but a much creamier color.  Unfortunately, the front and back porches block much of the natural light in these rooms.  We recently painted over the red dining room, gold entry way, and glazed brown living room.  This color has freshened up the whole house.  I would love to paint the woodwork, but that is for another year... ;)



Fall is a perfect season to leave the french doors open and enjoy the gorgeous weather!



I love the beautiful aspect of using feathers to decorate with in the Fall.  These have been in my collection for almost 20 years.  Trays help gather my arrangements.





The view from the family room into the living room:



Tucking a pumpkin here and there helps bring Fall into our home.




White mums tucked in a blue and white foot bath are a quick and easy centerpiece. My mom, the hostess with the mostest, taught me this trick as a young girl.  She always tucked annuals into various containers for wedding or baby showers held in her home.  After the shower, she would pop the plant into the landscape.  This is such an easy, inexpensive solution for a quick centerpiece!








Adding gold to my coasters was inspired by my friend, Kristin, over at Bliss At Home.
I DIY'd my own agate coasters using THIS tutorial!  It was so easy!



The view from the porch:

  18. Hi Emily, you may not remember me, but I met you in Rachel's bible study at HHBC over 10 years ago! We were both pregnant with our first babies. Anyway, found your blog through mutual friends and your home is simply stunning. Love all of the inspiration you provide. It makes me so excited to finally have a "forever" home in a few years. xo, Robyn

  24. Your home is stunning! My husband and I are finally building our dream home in South Carolina and our exterior looks similar to yours. We are struggling to find a shingle that isn't too light or too dark. We think yours looks perfect! Do you happen to know the name of the shingle that you all have on your roof? Fingers Crossed! :)

  25. Hi I know this is out of the blue but I stumbled upon this via pinterest. Your butler table interests me as I have the exact same one. I purchased it at a yard sale a few years back and wonder if you know anything about it? Love your blog btw.
