It’s Time for Fall…Inside our Home!

A million thanks to At Home, for partnering with all of us on this Fall Home Tour! #myreason

You may have heard me say that Fall is my favorite. Well, it’s true. I LOVE FALL. But, if there is one downfall of living in Florida, it’s that Fall is pretty hard to come by. I mean, seriously. It’s the beginning of October, and our highs are still in the 90’s. Yeah. 

So, when it comes to my love for Fall, I have to make the season change INSIDE my house. That’s #myreason for doing all this Fall decorating! When the calendar proclaims it Fall, I start baking all things pumpkin. I change my candles and soaps to Fall scents. Hey, I would even crank our air conditioner down if my husband would let me! 

So, if you wanna see, do come along with me for a tour of Fall…inside our home!

First of all, welcome to our home!

It’s your standard 4 bedroom 2 bath house, in a cozy little development where we know our neighbors, and the resident kids play football in our front yard because it’s the biggest!

The 2016 Fall Holiday Shelf!

Well, it’s been a while, folks! I know it’s the first day of Fall, and I’ve been pretty quiet. No worries, I’m still around – my days are simply full of poop and formula and naps and…BABIES!

The girls are doing so well! They actually just moved off the preemie charts onto the “regular baby” charts, and their pediatrician (and their mom and dad, of course) are thrilled with how well they’re progressing! We are so thankful!

But another thing I’m thankful for is FALL. If you’ve been around the blog at all, you know I LOVE FALL! It’s my favorite season, and I really talk it up. Especially in Florida. Where it’s still 90 degrees during the Fall, I HAVE to talk it up, right?!

Sooo…Happy FIRST DAY OF FALL to everyone! In honor of this blessed season, I wanted to share with you nothing less than my 2016 Fall Holiday Shelf! (Because giving birth to twin girls one-and-a-half-months early is no excuse for NOT decorating for Fall! At least around our house!) When this time of the year rolls around, it’s still #myreason for jumping into the season of decorating!

And I’m totally stoked to share this particular shelf design because the elements came from the awesome folks of At Home!

Now, if you’ve never been to an At Home store, stop right now, head over to www.athome.com and check it out! It’s like an enormous warehouse full of all things wonderful for your home, inside and out! Check out what I found for the shelf…

Don’t you LOVE the “coastal” look? (I mean, kinda paying tribute to the lovely state where I live with these Fall accents, right?)

Fall Holiday Shelf! (With a Couple of New Decorations and a FREE PRINTABLE!)

So far this year, you’ve journeyed along with me as I tested five new Fall recipes (CLICK HERE IF YOU MISSED THAT AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT NOW), and you’ve seen the outside of our home all decorated for Fall! (CLICK HERE IF YOU MISSED THAT AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT NOW!)

I’ve had a few people ask me about the decor around the inside of the house, and specifically: the Holiday Shelf!

For those who are new around here, my Holiday Shelf is my weak attempt at pretending I have a mantle. Here in Florida, we don’t have too many fireplaces, meaning we don’t have too many mantels, meaning I can’t decorate a mantel for all the seasons and holidays that I enjoy decorating for. So I’ve substituted a shelf in our foyer for that…and the Holiday Shelf was born!

Anyhoo, this is old hat to most of you – so, may I present to you, the 2015 Fall Holiday Shelf!

I know, I know what you’re thinking already. BLACK AND GOLD?! What on earth! Those aren’t FALL colors!

Well, here’s the thing. I’ve been itching to do some kind of decorating with black and gold for a while now, so I decided that now was as good a time as any. And mainly because…I found THIS:

Five for Fall…PLUS Fall Home Tour!

I’ve held back as long as I could manage! I LOVE Fall! And, living in Florida, I kinda have to make Fall happen inside my house on my own, because the weather doesn’t normally cooperate OUTSIDE the house! No worries, I think I’ve covered it this year!

So, step one: The Fall Holiday Shelf! I’ve already shared that with you, but if you missed it, you can see all the details by CLICKING HERE!

Now, step two: I’ve been over on Pinterest pinning Fall-like recipes since LAST Fall, and I picked out five that I just had to try for all of you! Without further ado, here are my Five for Fall!

Fabulous Fall! (At Our Home)

Well, I’m gonna go ahead with it. There are a few things that I’m still working on, but, for the most part, here is Fall at the House of Campbell!

The Outside

Outside

We’re still working on things outside the house – like landscaping, and new paint job, but it doesn’t look half-bad! (Even with the gray skies…someone needs to remind Florida that it’s the Sunshine State!)

There is one thing that drives me crazy about the front of this house. It’s not EVEN. (Yes, I’m OCD, you didn’t know that before now?!) The left column is farther left than the right column is right, and the left side of the porch (by the front door) is set back further than the right side! Since I LOVE symmetry, it was very difficult to decorate the front porch – but I’m sure I’ll get used to it eventually!
