    your mantle is also killer this year- everything is sooooooo good!!!! LOVE!

    1. Dont change a thing…people who say there is too much stuff are not very creative (in my opinion). I get wayyyyyy toooo much stuff out…but I’m pleasing my family and not thousands of blogger stalkers!!!

      1. So true! I hope I don’t have thousands of blogger stalkers either LOL. I’m doing my own thing here and would like to keep it that way ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Love your home and I agree, love the more is better idea. Your accessories are always such a beautiful accent to your furnishings. I love the drum by the bookcase and I really like the tassels on the ottoman too. Great tour.

  3. We’re a family that loves soups. That tomato soup looks like a winner here, YUM! Saving it, and for sure giving it a try this Fall. Your home is gorgeous, but your furry babies were the ones that stole the show for me. They’re adorable!

  4. Julia ~ As usual, you nailed it. I would be very happy never to see another orange pumpkin or corn stalk. I loved the painting you did but every time I clicked on the link for your etsy shop I landed on the Lutz site!! Is it just me?

    1. Nope it’s not just you. I just checked. I don’t know how that happened. Sorry about that. It’s fixed now. And thank you so much.

  5. Everything looks so pretty, I can’t wait to try that soup. My boys love tomato soup so once it cools down here I’ll be giving it a go. Your cats are gorgeous! THanks for opening up your beautiful home to us!

    1. Thanks Kristin. My ultimate soup addiction is Vietnamese Pho. You could wake me up in the middle of the night to eat it and I would.

  6. I’m with you on the subtle colors and forgetting the usual oranges, browns, etc. I love fall and we had beautiful temps this past weekend, however, the heat and humidity are returning today. Not fun! I can’t wait to try that soup! I love having soups in the cooler weather and this one is a must to try. I was unaware of the danger of non-organic celery. Thanks for sharing that info!

    Your home is always stunning and your touches for fall do not disappoint! I’ll go along with the “more is more” too. I absolutely love black, white and gold. Thank you for opening your home to all of us!


    1. Thanks Pat, our daughter’s doctor told us about the “clean 15 and dirty dozen” of fruits and veggies and said that celery is about one of the worst things. I love celery.

  7. I for one, want EVERYTHING in your house, in my own house! I looooove your decorating STYLE!

    How do you keep it so clean? I have a 3 yr old, a 7 yr old and a 14 yr old, 2 small dogs and a Husband and my home looks like a tornado hit.

    I am the only one who loves tomatoe soup, ill give this recipe a try. I eat mine with crushed Cheeze its.

    1. Thanks Katrina and for what it’s worth, it’s really not as clean as it appears on the photos. I do have fur balls flying around and my husband and kids are also like a tornado but I try to keep my downstairs somewhat presentable which is why this isn’t a full tour right now

  8. I too LOVE your home. It is one of my very favorites in blogland. You are the master of mixing patterned neutrals and glitz, and I love it! You just keep on being you. Very inspiring!

  9. Love the tour! I freakin love how you added the wood beads to the pendant light in the kitchen – perfection!
    Those feathers in the vase are also pretty darn sweet.
    Overall, great fall touches!

  10. Your home is lovely Julia! I agree that the craft store version of fall makes me want to barf! I love the subtle use of fall in your home and I am so jealous that you have fall produce such as squash available to you. It is more is more in this house as well!!

    1. Oh wow you don’t have fall produce yet in your area. That is not good ๐Ÿ˜‰ And thanks so much for stopping bye Jennifer

    1. Thanks! Lucky you that you have a yard full of tomatoes. I don’t! My favorite used to be yellow tomatoes but I haven’t found them in a while.

  11. I always love your tours Julia! You know how much I LOVE black & white ๐Ÿ˜‰ My favorite is the pretty sitting area by your fireplace. You are always so creative in your DIYs. I actually may try that yummy soup recipe too! Thx for the tour and can’t wait to see you in a couple of weeks in NYC at BHG!

  12. so pretty my friend! I need soup…unfortunately I am sick and have to make my own…I wish it would just appear, ha,ha! I am getting a Scandi vibe from you more and more and I love it. Great new details. xo

    1. Thanks Kristin, hope you feel better. I’ve always had that little European vibe, especially with my light colored floors that I had for 16.5 years ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I am a minimalistic also or should I say was. I don’t think your room is “cluttered”, rather very homey, inviting and I will take tips from you. Your style and site is one of the best.

    I absolutely LOVE your mirror above the sofa that mimics a wheel base; where can I find it?

    Keep up the great work; love it, love it, love it!!


    1. Oh wow thanks so so much. Your comment just made my day. I found the mirror on clearance and layered a vintage Curtis Jere burst over it which I found at an estate sale. I have found two very similar items which I believe I linked to. Let me check.

  14. Julia your home is gorgeous from the top of your ceilings with your gorgeous lighting to the bottom of your chic area rug wrapped floors! You have an amazing eye for styling and detail!! We both love black and white, texture and contrast and the way you combine all of those is so inspirational! Your rooms are so inviting and cozy – I’m smitten with those giant beads – great score!! Happy fall friend! xo Heather

    1. I can only repeat it every time how sweet you are Lisa. I so appreciate your sweet and genuine comments! Have a great weekend.

  15. I love your cornice or topper over the kitchen sink. Did you make it or purchase it? I would be interested in either alternative. Love your house!

  16. I would love to decorate with more plants in my home. You have done a beautiful job of this. I wonder if you might tell the names of these plants (what kind they are? Thank you .
