At the end of September, The Nester invited people to join her on Instagram in sharing images of their home every day in October. She provided a prompt for each day. I loved the idea and decided to join in on the fun!
Somehow, October is already over and so here is a round-up of the month’s pictures. I missed a day or two at the end, but truly enjoyed the challenge of finding a part of our home to capture and share each day.
If you followed along on Instagram, you’ve seen these pictures, but I wanted to gather them all in one spot to easily see our cozy fall home.
I loved incorporating magnolia throughout the house. It began with making a garland for the front door. Then, I brought a branch into the dining room and eventually made a second garland to hang above the doorway into the dining room.
I’ve loved the warmth and whimsy it brought to our home. And it has me anticipating the holiday season all the more!!
My basket collection finally found a home in the kitchen this month.
About halfway through the month, I changed out the curtains and rearranged furniture in the living room. I swapped the credenza and the small dresser. I hoped the arrangement would make the tv less of a focal point while giving us better seating options for watching it.
Thus far, I’ve enjoyed the arrangement. And I’m also a big fan of floral curtains in the living room! (You’ll see pictures of the changes further down.)
The flat lay prompt was one of the most intimidating ones from the month; however, it ended up being one of my favorites! I gathered flowers from the bouquet Jesse got me for my birthday, a few odds and ends, as well as a new macrame wall hanging we got.
I definitely plan to create more flat lays in the future. It was so fun! If you want to know more about flat lays and tips on creating one yourself, check out The Nester’s post all about it here.
My birthday was at the beginning of October, and my sister got these flameless candles for me. I’ve been dreaming of candles in the fireplace to add that warm glow. It inspired me to create a cozy space close to the fireplace using the cowhide rug we originally got for the dining room.
I found a live plant at a thrift store one day. Once I brought it home, I had to rearrange the dining room a little to make room for it. I’ve tried to have a corn plant before, but killed it. I feel better about starting with a mature one. It’s already grown a little since we’ve had it. And I love the life a big plant adds to the dining room!
Thanks for coming by! I hope your home is feeling cozy for fall as well.
