This year, I’ve decorated our home with a lot of outdoor/ natural items and I’m completely loving how they’ve warmed up the house! I also added in some lovely items from World Market!

I’ve already been busy baking away. One of my very favorite things about fall, is the baking. The house smells amazing and I want to curl up and enjoy every second of it!

And speaking of baking, I had to make some of my homemade banana nut bread… it only seemed fitting…

And those striped napkins are one of my new very favorites! πŸ˜€

Fall is also the perfect time to sit back and enjoy a cup of hot apple cider! In fact, I love it so much, I decided to keep the recipe handy…

Our huge DIY chalkboard is easily one of my other favorite things in the kitchen…

I also switched things up and added our old breakfast nook shelf to the kitchen…

I added some hooks beneath the shelf for a place to hang my aprons, but the shelf is a perfect place to display seasonal/ kitchen goodies…

I love to add wheat around the house this time of year as well. I grabbed this from my dad’s field and I can’t help but love how it looks in this utensil crock

And I can’t forget the apples… They’re also one of my favorite items to decorate with, especially during fall, and this marble and wood pedestal looks fabulous with them…

  2. Oh Shayna! Love this! Your little details amaze me– like the picture where the leaf is left on the apple, leaves on the napkins and the cinnamon sticks… I never would have thought to do that! Everything looks so cozy and welcoming! πŸ™‚

  3. That’s it, I’m moving in! Or you just need to come to my house and build those shelves for me…
    Seriously love very little bit, the chalkboard, the bathroom, the breakfast book, the shelves, seriously I need the shelves!! Amazing job Shayna!

  4. Absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Every detail flows seamlessly and makes anyone who enters feel like they’ve just come home. No one can ask for anything else in a house!

  5. Your home is just beautiful, Shayna!! I love your decorating style, your posts are full of such great decorating inspiration. Love the contrast of the black front door πŸ™‚

  6. Love your gorgeous fall home! I’m obsessed with chalkboards and was wondering how you wrote the recipe on the chalkboard in your kitchen? Did you use a certain technique and what kind of chalk/pen? Thanks!

  7. Oh how I’ve missed YOU! Love this tour, Shayna! The Apple Wreath is my absolute favorite thing… did you make this? Blessings & <3 M

  8. Hello!

    I love your decor! I stumbled across your blog on Pinterest and I would love to know what stain color you used on your shelves in the dining room. My house is very similar with the touches of white, carrington stain color and outdoorsy touches here and there. I currently have shelves hanging in my kitchen that I would love to re-finish to be lighter and more rustic like the wall of shelves you have in your room. Any information would be greatly appreciated πŸ™‚

  9. Your home is truly beautiful! I love your ideas. Could you please tell me how you hung your wreath from your mantle hood? The contrast between the white wreath and the color of your cabinets looks really pretty. Thanks for any information.

    1. Thank you so much, Judith! I hung the wreath from some grapevine wire I picked up at the craft store. I simply looped it around the wreath, pulled it tight, then draped it over our cabinet doors. Because the wire is heavy, it works like a charm! πŸ™‚

  10. I love your blog and I’m inspired by your decorating. I just bought a house and I’m trying to decided on a color to paint the kitchen. What color paint did you use?

    Thanks
    Theresa

    1. Thank you so much, Theresa! Our kitchen is painted in Edgcomb Gray by Benjamin Moore, and the surrounding rooms are in White Dove By Benjamin Moore (Breakfast Nook), and Super White by Benjamin Moore (Living Room, Entry). All are mixed in eggshell. I hope that helps! πŸ™‚

    1. THANK YOU so much, Jeanine! Our cabinets are made by Custom Cabinets. We bought them from a local dealer. The color is called Carrington and our cabinets are made of Alder wood. The color isn’t quite black, but it is really dark.
      I hope that helps! ?

  11. Love love love your home. Where did you find the shelf that is above the aprons and the books for the aprons? Great way to display!

    1. Thank you! I’ve actually had the shelf for a long time… it was originally from Home Interiors. We gave a it a little face lift to modernize it. I’m sorry that’s not more helpful!
