Well hello there! Welcome to my full fall home tour! Come on in and have a look at my nature inspired neutral fall decor. Fall is usually full of bright and vibrant colors but this year, those colors will only be found on the outside of our home. We have only lived here in Minnesota for the past 6 months and three of those months were spent living in an apartment while our house was built, so we have only been in our new house a very short time! Since we have been living here, I realize that I feel very calm, relaxed, and at peace. The decor in our home is a reflection of that. Neutral colors can be very soothing and welcoming making a space warm and inviting.
I never thought I would be one to love a black and white room, but minutes after I started to put up the decor from our previous home in our new kitchen, I knew none of it would work. It was a lot of reds and yellows that worked in our last kitchen, but not this one. I'm sure I will eventually add some color, but as of right now, I'm really loving the classic black and white with a splash of rustic here and a splash of vintage there. I do plan on adding more rustic and vintage elements to the room because this is an open concept floor plan and we do have quite a few rustic and vintage elements in the living room.
Every time I walk into our living room, I can't help but think it looks like we spent loads and loads of money on it. Not only is there no way we are in any position to spend loads and loads of money on any type of furniture, even if we could, I'm still too frugal to do anything like that. Although I adore the way our living room turned out, it's still a work in progress. I don't plan on rushing out to purchase finishing touches like throw pillows, blankets, or accessories. I think it's important to get a feel for the space before you add finishing touches.
I want to share with you all my tips on saving on living room furniture with a quick little tour. What you see here didn't cost us more than $1200 (not including the TV, accessories, or windmill blades and tail) and if you have been shopping for furniture in the past decade, you know there are couches out there for $1200 alone!
