Hi and welcome to B@H’s Fall Home Tour for Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours hosted by my dear friend, Lindsay of The White Buffalo!! Are you hopping over from Julia’s home over at Cuckoo 4 Design? Julia is also a lovely friend of mine and I am always blown away by her style!
If you are new to Bliss at Home, my name is Kristin and I am so happy you are joining today! A little background here, my husband and I are renovating my childhood home. I handle the design and he helps with the tools. We also have hired out some help on the kitchen. So, at the moment, our kitchen, master closet, and the whole second level to our home is getting remodeled. It’s always interesting shooting in a home that is getting a makeover. A bit comical at times, honestly. She isn’t quite ready for her close-up just yet, if you know what I mean. Today, you are going to see our entry way and main living room with some peeks into our newly remodeled bathroom.
I am not a put a ‘pumpkin on every table’ kind of decorator. I like the change of seasons to dictate how I use our home. The needs change with different seasons and I yearn for more creature comforts in the cooler months. I go for the sensory experience. The seasonal smells, the pops of color, and the patterns and textures I pull from the inspiration I find outdoors and from the fashion and design world.
This year, an image that I pulled a lot of my design choices from is this shot from Vogue photographer Kevin Tachman taken during NYFW:
The colors are really my muse and since my room already has a lot of black + white pattern going on it really got the wheels turning. The combo of graphic and feminine I love, love, love! It’s pretty much what I’ve been drawn to for the past year and it keeps it all pretty but with an edge.
Here’s how I’ve worked off the inspiration image:
I’m going to let the photos do the talking and feel free to comment and ask any questions in the comments at the end of this post. Let’s tour, shall we?
I hope you enjoyed this little fall peek inside our home. I just returned home from the Better Homes & Gardens Stylemaker Event in NYC this weekend. A lot of the goodies from the trip appeared in this post today. I’ll be sharing a home renovation update this Friday and some more posts this week to get you in the fall spirit.
I can’t wait for you to see the line-up for this week!! So much design & DIY talent to help inspire your fall home.
Be sure to visit my friend Albertina at Mimosa Lane next. Her design instincts are always on point and I guarantee you’ll get some high style!
The full line-up for today…
