Cozy Minimalist Fall Tour

Today I’m joining in a Cozy Fall Home Tour, welcome, especially if you are new here, visiting from My Vintage Porch.

My home changes a tiny bit every week, especially during fall– based on what’s blooming or turning color in the yard and how I’m feeling.

Mostly I just change up greenery, pillows and throws and pull things to the forefront that feel right for the season.

Surprisingly, for the past few weeks, that means I’ve got some leftover touches of pink hanging out with some rustic oranges.

That feels about right.

My sofa looked like this above a few weeks ago–with vibrant colors and a touch of butternut.

I’m slowly toning it down to neutrals. I’m guessing that pink pillow only has a week or two left until I change out the pillow cover for something more rustic or neutral.

The kitchen always stays pretty neutral.

My gift to myself is not putting a bunch of pretty decorative decor on the island. As much as I love pretty things, I’m learning the value of having some margin in the form of cleared of surfaces in my life.

My husband’s a bourbon collector, and empty bottles make great vases for fall weeds.

Thanks for stopping in at my Cozy Minimalist home.

Be sure to visit the next stop at Twelve on Main…

PS, If you need a little extra inspiration this fall and if you are ready to get the most amount of style with the least amount of stuff, I’d love to have you join the new fall class.

This season, I’m giving away FREE the entire FOUR SEASONS CLASS to anyone who presorders my next book by October 3. These seasonal classes each normally sell for $29 and you can get the entire set for free–and have instant access when you preorder Cozy Minimalist Home.

Tour the Tiny Cozy Barn

Nest Fest is opening day of the Tiny Cozy Barn–the tiny barn we’ll be taking on the road with us on the Cozy Home Book tour. We’ll be pulling out the day after Nest Fest so you’ll be the first to see the barn in person, walk through and see the Cozy Minimalist tools in action.

As I type this, tickets have only been open for just over a day and we’ve already sold 33% of our 1000 available tickets. We expect them to sell out early this year, so be sure to grab yours here.

Hope to see you in October!

You Can’t Ruin Something You Already Hate

This is the bottom half of a hutch that I’ve had for 15 years. The top is painted white, and stacked on a long table in the other part of the barn and this fella is on his third color–I think he looks great in pink. I actually have never hated the hutch, but there […]

Grocery store flowers–better to get all the same type of flower (spend $12 and get 3 bunches) it will make a bigger impact than trying to mix all different varieties. You are not Farmgirl Flowers let them do […]

When Your Husband Doesn’t Share Your DIY Dreams

You think it’s because he doesn’t want you to change anything in your home but maybe, he’s exhausted from your indecision and doesn’t want to see you frustrated anymore because he loves you. So he tells you to keep it all […]
