Welcome to our Home Sweet Home! Fall is in the air and I am so excited to be joining the fall “It’s a Colorful Life” home tour today. This tour is always a bright spot each season and I love seeing everyone’s colorful homes. A big thanks to Jennifer and Jewel for putting it together!
If you are new here- WELCOME! WELCOME! I’m Heather, the crazy-crafting-iced-coffee-drinking-mom behind the blog. My husband and I live in Atlanta with our two boys – ages 5 and 8. I have been blogging for around six years, ever since I was fortunate to stay home with my youngest.
This blog brings me so much joy and I am so glad you are joining me today to have a look around! One way to catch up with me is to read my Front Porch Coffee Talks where I share what’s on my mind like friends chatting over coffee.
I always love sharing our home with you with hopes that you feel inspired and have a fun few minutes to relax and escape. So with that, let’s take a fall stroll through our home sweet home starting with the front porch.
SNAPSHOTS OF FALL: THE FRONT PORCH
First stop is always the Front Porch around here. As I mentioned I do a weekly Front Porch Coffee Talk series where I share tidbits of life and whatever is on my mind as if we were two friends sitting on the porch. And it’s where you can find me most mornings. Few seasons or holidays go by without the porch getting a little tweaking and this fall is no different! I used “pumpkin spice” to inspire this space
To see more details on this space- you can get the full tour here : Pumpkin Spice Inspired Fall Front Porch
SHOP THE ROOM!
For the planters, I grabbed some Black Eyed Susan’s and purplish red coleus and an orange mum. I love the mix of rich colors and you may even notice that I placed fun wire pumpkins among the plants. Love that little detail.
SNAPSHOTS OF FALL: THE FAMILY ROOM
Next stop is the family room! This space got a quick update with antlers and sunflowers…and lots of pumpkins in the built in bookshelves.
SHOP THE ROOM!

The kitchen dining nook got a bright dose of color with the sunflowers and the designer inspired DIY pillows are still going strong. These pillows were a labor of love and you can read all about them here.
Can you spot the other DIY Designer Inspired project in this room? You can see how I made this DIY Hob Knob Lamp here. Spoiler alert- I made mine for under $20!
SNAPSHOTS OF SUMMER: KITCHEN
Next stop is the kitchen. I kept the counters super simple and just did a few Ginger Jars with Trader Joe’s Sunflowers. Since our home is an open concept- I try to keep the kitchen very minimal on clutter and decor.
SHOP THIS ROOM!
The handwritten recipes that I added above the stove are still there and I still love them! I added six of these handwritten recipes on my FREE RESOURCE LIBRARY if you are interested in hanging framed handwritten recipes in your own kitchen this fall. This and many more free printables are available to Southern State of Mind subscribers.
