My Fall House Tour

Hello, friends! As always, I’m so glad you’re here. Not only am I inviting you in to my little house for a fall tour, but today you’ll get to visit FIVE other blogger friends who are on the tour with me! So fun, yes?   You’ll find their links below.

If you’re new to The Inspired Room, I’m Melissa and I’ve been blogging here since 2007! I’m also the author of a whole bunch of books you can find here. I have two more on the way (books, not babies in case that was confusing, my babies are almost all grown now) and I’ve actually been up to my ears in edits the past few week. But even though it’s been a wild few weeks, I LOVE fall most of all so it’s fun to have y’all over!

Today I’ll give you a tour through my main rooms so you can get the feel of our humble white brick house! We live in Seattle. We moved into our house three years ago this month, and we’re still making this place our own. It’s quite a process. So far we’ve painted inside and out, remodeled our kitchen, added two Dutch doors, lots of shutters, blinds, light fixtures, and some flooring and have done quite a bit of work outside, too. You can see our brand new outdoor deck here.

We have two furry pups, Jack and Lily, so you’ll see them running through here and there. They LOVE tour days and having people over.

My Fall House Tour

About eleven years ago I started an annual Fall Nesting series here on the blog. My philosophy has always been to keep everything pretty simple and just enjoy the slow unfolding of the season as I feel inspired.

So while I did unexpectedly find some pumpkin/gourds for my porch while I was at Trader Joe’s yesterday, for the most part I don’t do a lot of “fall decor.” But I am a big fan of just bringing in more cozy textures and looking forward to all the familiar fall nesting rituals!

Alright, enough of me chatting. Come on in and make yourself right at home.  You’ll find links to sources throughout the post and at the end, but feel free to ask questions in the comments. I love it when you say hi and let me know you’re here!

And….I’ll be quiet now so you can get on your way. Enjoy the tours! :)

Summer House

Summer House

When our kids were young, we had a family beach house on the Oregon coast where we would often spend weekends and holidays. While we no longer have our own vacation house to go stay at, on the bright side now we get to live every day in a house that overlooks the sea. Coming home to our own “beach house” feels pretty special in every season, if you ask me.

I love this little guest room. I wrote my newest not-yet-released book almost entirely in this room (more details on it to come, you’ll laugh if you didn’t hear this earlier but it has the same name as Joanna Gaines’ new book HomeBody! Crazy, yes? It’s a totally different subject though and I can’t wait to tell you more about it).

So I guess you could say this room has become like a getaway for me within my own home. I love being at home, so sometimes that’s all I need. A quiet corner to retreat to. Do you have a space like that? With all the loud dogs and boys in this house, it’s such a treat for me to be able to go in here and close the door sometimes :).

The sign in this room is one I had custom made from Between You and Me Signs to give as a gift, but I hung it in here until I could deliver it. I love it so much! I have several signs with encouraging quotes and verses on them, I feel like meaningful art can add so much to a home (I wrote more about that here!).

Hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July (for our U.S. friends!)!

PS…speaking of coastal vibes, you can see a peek of our new plantation shutters in here! I will be sharing a lot more about the shutters in future posts, but if you’re interested in ordering them or seeing the shades and blinds we have in our home, you can go here!
