Eleven Gables Fall Home Tour


 Welcome, Friends!
I am so pleased you are here.  

I am thrilled to be included in a gorgeous round-up of Fall Tours hosted by The White Buffalo Styling Co.  If you haven't seen all of the tours, I would suggest starting here and clicking all the way through.  They are amazing!  Welcome to those here from the talented The Chronicles of Home.

 This is our home, Eleven Gables.
In the fall... we ride our bikes, jump in leaves, celebrate birthdays, roast s'mores, go camping, nap on the porch, watch football, carve pumpkins, trick-or-treat, count our blessings, play soccer, go to school, love on each other


Since the Fall season is just barely showing its face, I am starting the season off a little softer.  As the leaves change, I will add in orange pumpkins around the landscape.  You might even see a playful little ghost or two as the children get ready to trick-or-treat the neighborhood in their festive costumes.


Faux boxwood topiaries flank the stained doors and the palest green, monotone Cinderella pumpkins stacked up make a fun little fall statement.




The mudroom entrance got a little pop of color on the door and another cinderella pumpkin.


Just inside the front door is a black chinoiserie buffet that I found off craigslist this summer!  I topped it with a simple arrangement and fresh white pumpkins.


In the kitchen, I placed white pumpkins in brown transferware dishes along the window sill.  Can you feel that cool breeze blowing in?  Cinderella pumpkins and grocery store flowers bring in a few touches of fall-like weather.



Leaves from our Japanese Maple tree add a fall punch of color to my otherwise white kitchen. 


White pumpkins are sprinkled among the transferware.  




And here I tucked another little pumpkin on a cake stand.



The family room got some white mums and burlap pumpkins.  These are the only things I drug out of the attic this year.  It has just been so blasted hot.  As much as I profess to LOVE summer, I am ready for a tiny cool off and a date with fall.  Shhhh, don't tell summer.   




The table is set with galvanized chargers and all white china.  A sprig of rosemary smells fragrant tucked between the cutlery.





The formal living got a complete overhaul for fall.  Our earlier plan to change out the marble and paint the woodwork got put on hold until next year.  To see the before, go here.  Okay, wow!  Big difference, huh?  


Grasscloth lines the bookcases and all the accessories have been streamlined.  Family photos are gathered together in coordinating silver frames.


The chinoiserie bookcases have been filled with books, blue and white porcelains, and silver.


The rug was changed to seagrass..  It completely lightened up this typically dark room.  Someday, all this woodwork will be painted white... someday. 


The coffee table floral centerpiece is my latest easy DIY.  See how to make yourself a gorgeous, everlasting arrangement here.


Waiting for after summer sales proved to be beneficial... I found the perfect lounge chairs and cafe set for this narrow area by the pool, all for a fraction of the price.   


Cozy throws in lieu of beach towels for star gazing at night (my boys' new favorite night time ritual).


Last but not least, the porch is ready for fall as well.  My bright, summery porch has been swapped for a more neutral tone and blankets are stacked for easy cuddling.  




Mums are plopped in porcelain planters ready to usher in fall.

"The Girls" are getting their fill of insects and grass while I am outside enjoying the glorious cooler temps and writing this post.

    1. Thank you so much! I should clarify that I am hiring that aspect of painting out. I don't do woodwork. I like a nice finish. My painter uses an oil-base. xox

  23. What a lovely tour of your home! Breathtaking views! What I always love about your home is how inviting it is to visitors. You strike the balance so well between making your home a decorator's dream and a haven for your family. Love that! You have welcomed fall so well into your home! I love how you decorate softly for fall at first. Such a good way of putting it. It just seems to abrupt to throw in all the heavy fall colors. Enjoyed the tour so much!
