I hate running from one place to another and nothing makes me happier than a slow day at home so I can’t tell you how happy I am that I am your last stop on the Finding Fall Home Tour.

I get to spend more time with you and we all can take a big exhale, I can get you a coffee and we don’t have any place to run off to.

If you are coming from Miss Mustard Seed I know you are overflowing with inspiration! That girl knows how to do it right!

I am go glad you are here and that you have taken the time to take a peek into our home dressed up for fall.

Fall is my favorite and it is not just because I have a love affair with sweaters and boots!

Fall is when I seem to turn my head and heart towards home even more than usual and I find myself opening my doors to others more.

It isn’t just the holidays…it is something different.

Things seem to slow down and you just don’t want to let it slip away.

In the midst of your busy day to day, dishes in the sink, pajama pants still on at 3pm or your hair up in a messy bun I hope you also find yourself opening your door to those around you this season too.

Welcome to our home…

Let’s start with the kitchen because this space is truly the heart of our home.

This is where we spend our time talking, working, eating and gathering in general.

Next to the kitchen is our butler’s pantry which has really become the perfect place for coffee, tea and our bar (if you can call it that).

{If you love Sweet Melissa as much as I do you can find her HERE.}

Next to this space is my art studio. Coincidence? No!

This is where you will find us talking in the mornings, drinking coffee and doing school

I love gathering spaces and this sure meets that need in our family.

Our library is cozy and the space where we keep some of our books and our piano.

Hearing the children play is one of my favorite things on this earth!

Let’s head up stairs and at least show you what is clean (picked up works for me).

This is our master bedroom and there will be some fun changes in here this fall. I can’t wait to show you what a little paint can do!

When I have the time I really love to pull objects together I already have and go outside to gather branches and flowers for a simple table setting.

I really encourage you to just look for what you have and to use what is outside your front door.

I truly believe when we make the people more important than the perfection the whole atmosphere of our home changes.

We are atmosphere makers! We really are! What kind of atmosphere are we creating in our homes?

Thank you so much for touring our home!

Thank you to Finding Home for including me with such incredible designers and bloggers!

To view this week long tour head to Finding Home  and start from the beginning!

If you are interested in my brand new online course all about creating an artisan home I would love to have you read more about the Art of Home | Modern Simple Living!

It has only just begun!

Art of Home | Modern Simple Living will be about some of the lost arts of caring for our home and family.

Each week will contain step by step videos with decorating, cooking, gardening, entertaining, housekeeping and more…so much more!

The following will be shared: The Art of Farm to Table, The Art of Gathering, The Art of Domestic Moxie and The Art of Reclaimed Style.

This four week course is your favorite home and cooking magazines come to life!

Maybe it will even bring back sweet memories and we will all learn from each other.

We would love to have you join us!
