Halloween has always been a holiday favorite for my husband and me. Bring in the addition of two children and the excitement for all things scary and fear-inducing goes through the roof. I don’t know about you, but I love to scour the internet (primarily Pinterest) for home tours, especially holiday home tours, so here is ours.
Welcome to our Halloween Home tour. 🙂
The entryway of our home. We have so many projects we’d like to tackle, including a new front door and ripping the carpet off the stairs and adding wood. Mirror is an older Kirklands find, “Trick or Treat” is a pinterest printable find, the lighted pumpkin is from Homegoods, and the wicker basket is from Target.
Our dining room is immediately off the entry way and has direct access to the kitchen, which I love. We eat in our dining room almost every night as a family for dinner. The large hutch and table were both brought back from our time in Germany. A friend refinished the table for us last year, I refinished the chairs with Annie Sloan paint and a light coffee “stain” from McDonalds :). I’m fairly certain I’d like to paint the hutch … possibly white to match the chairs? What do you all think? The decorations were fairly minimal on the hutch – due to its size I honestly feel it needs a bit more. This piece of furniture will definitely be high on my list for added Halloween decor next year. I purchase shutters for each home we buy – I love the cozy, farmhouse feel they add. The curtains were a lucky Homegoods find last year.
Oh, and there’s our sweet pup, Farrah. 😉
Funny story, when we purchased our furniture in Germany it was delivered to our apartment completely disassembled. Taran and I had no idea that we were expected to put it all together, and we had purchased multiple pieces. Needless to say it was an extremely stressful weekend – We figure that since our marriage survived that long, arduous weekend we know it’ll survive anything, lol!! You can’t tell, but the base sides are actually flip-flopped from the way it’s actually supposed to be! There are glass doors for the side shelves, but I love to have it all open. Again, any thoughts to paint color? I know it needs something but am having a hard time deciding.
Our eat-in kitchen has gone through many changes since we moved into this house 3.5 years ago. For quite a while it housed a large play kitchen and a child’s table and chairs – perfect solutions for when your kids are 5 and 3. Now that they’ve grown we have a “big kid” table and chairs. The table was a neighborhood find and the chairs? From Amazon! All of the white curtains in my home are from IKEA. The rug here and in my family room are from Rugs USA. Would love to add a new chandelier in here. Again, too many choices!
And my windows need to be washed on the outside! Still recovering from Hurricane Matthew. 🙂
The family room is where we spend most of our time as a family, so there is lots of seating and big, fluffy pillows. It’s also kid friendly, with an enormous basket for toys and tons of storage within the TV cabinet, bookcase, and coffee table. The leather couch and love seat we’ve had for EVER, bookcase is from a beautiful furniture store in MO, chair is from IKEA, TV hutch is from Haverty’s in Savannah.
I like to keep our mantel fairly Halloween-free so it will transition well into Thanksgiving. The birdhouses I have picked up from different shops along the way, the pumpkin was an amazing find at a little consignment shop in Hinesville. The “fall” banner was made by my sweet friend, Amy. Peace lilies aren’t too fall or Halloween-ish, but the plant is happy and healthy so I’m not moving it. I have a black thumb, so keeping this gorgeous foliage alive (and blooming!) for so long is quite the feat for me. If she’s happy, I’m happy. 🙂
