Fall Home Tour 2015 | Inspired by Charm

Welcome to fall at Inspired by Charm!

Every time one of these home tours rolls around, I find it hard to believe that another season is upon us. However, if there is one season I’m happy to make room for, it’s fall. With pumpkins (both for decorating and eating), slightly cooler temperatures, fall festivals, colorful leaves, and cozy evenings on the couch (Bring on the blankets and warm apple cider!), what’s not to love?

For this year’s Finding Fall Home Tour hosted by Laura or Finding Home Farms, I’m joining 16 other bloggers and Better Homes and Gardens! The previous destination on this festive tour was Liz Marie’s home from the Liz Marie Blog. I admire Liz and her style so much. It’s an honor to follow her in this series. If my house is your first stop, be sure to click back (start at the beginning here) to see what you missed.

If you are new to Inspired by Charm (IBC), let me extend a heartfelt welcome! My name is Michael. Here on IBC I share a little bit of everything. From recipes to home decor to DIY projects to entertaining tips, my goal is to inspire you with fun, doable, and colorful ideas.

Now that I’ve introduced myself, let’s begin the tour. If you have any questions, please leave them in comments. All of my paint colors can be found here. I’ve also linked up a few products at the end of this post to help you easily find some of things featured on this tour.

This is my living room. It’s probably my favorite space in my home (and it seems to be yours, too). I really love tweaking this room each season.

(Since I know someone will ask, I purchased the rug in the space was from CB2 a few years ago. Unfortunately, it is no longer available.)

I decided to begin my seasonal decorating with lots of fresh flowers. Even though I know they won’t last all season, you just can’t beat the real thing. (Plus, in a week or so, it will give me an excuse to get creative with my mantel again.) These flowers are from Farmgirl Flowers. They create rustic bouquets with in-season blooms and foliage. Given my limited access to unique flowers, they are a lifesaver. I want a shipment every week.

Over in my office, I decided to set up a little candy bar. With Halloween just around the corner, I thought this would be fun. However, having a plethora of candy within arms reach of my desk may not have been the best idea.

I even tucked in a few of my DIY Acorn Acorn Squash. You can learn how to make those here.

In the dining room, I opted for something less traditional in terms of fall colors. I focused on whites, greens, and deep purple.

I did add some orange with this wreath. I couldn’t resist.

In the kitchen (which I recently shared here), I kept things simple. A few pumpkins and some flowers give a seasonal touch.

Now, I didn’t do much fall decorating upstairs, so I’m going to show you those rooms at another time – hopefully in a week or so. However, I did want to point out a few things.

Fall Home Tour 2015 | Inspired by Charm

First, I picked up a new chair for my closet area. I’ve been looking for something for a while now, and thought this worked perfectly. Simply styled with a brass studded pillow, it makes a great addition to the space.

In my bedroom, I switched out the throw at the bottom of the bed with a faux fur blanket. I also added new artwork in the hall.

Secondly, I finally paid a little bit of attention to my second guest bedroom.

This was a goal from my last home tour. (It was likewise my goal to get my other bedroom painted, which I managed to do as well! Yay for progress. [More on that soon.]) I decided to clear some of the clutter and limit the color palette. While it still has a ways to go, it’s looking better already. What do you think?

These two seem to think so.

And that, my friends, wraps up another home tour here on IBC! I can’t thank you enough for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed seeing my home and picked up a few ideas for your space.

Next up on the tour is Emily from Jones Design Company. Her space is beautifully dressed for fall, so be sure to head over there for more inspired ideas.

Also, our friends over at Better Homes and Gardens are joining us on this tour too! Check out their post here. If you’re decorating your home for fall, but sure to share some pictures on Instagram. (I love seeing your spaces!) Use the hashtag #BHGcelebrate for a change to be feature on BHG’s Instagram!

Happy Fall!

    Your house looks so inviting and colorful! Would you mind sharing where your dining chairs are from?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Thank you!! My dining room chairs are called Wishbone Chairs. They are available at many retails these days (in a variety of colors too). However, I found mine on Overstock. Hope that helps!

  • Karen at

    Michael, I ALWAYS love taking a walk through your home. It just always looks so fresh and inviting. Absolutely beautiful. May I ask if you like the lighting fixture in your foyer? I’m looking at something very similar and wondered how the lighting was.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Karen, Thank you SO much. 🙂 Yes, I love that fixture. It was a must-have when it first came out (from Pottery Barn several years ago [they no longer sell it]) and it’s still one of my favorite purchases. I have it set to a dimmer which is really wonderful. T

      Thanks again!
      xo Michael

  • Vanessa at

    Michael,

    So lovely and it is not so over the top FALL…that’s what I love about you-beautiful touches sprinkled all over. I love the Farmgirl Flowers too- they are amazing and showcased awesomely! NICELY done!

    That guest room needs company. That’s me, right? Absolutely lovely home. Impressive talent

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Let’s do it! You bring the wine! Haha.

      xo Michael

  • Terri at

    I love that your home is so full of light and cheer. It also feels warm and inviting for the season. As always, you did a fantastic job!

  • Lisa B. at

    Love the candy tier dish and the Happy Fall print!

    Your home is breathtakingly beautiful and your attention to detail is amazing!! Thanks for sharing. I need to look at it over and over again to catch all the greatness! : ) Cannot wait to see your Christmas decor!

  • Charlene at

    Love it Michael – you always have wonderful taste and make everything so inviting!

  • Vanessa at

    Michael everything looks AMAZING!!! And this is probably totally random but can I just tell you how much I loved seeing the remotes on your coffee table?! LOL! It represents the fact that we can have pretty things mixed with our everyday things and have it all work together beautifully. Love it!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Right!? Everyone says, “hide them”, but I’m not about to hunt for a remote or open a box when my favorite show is about to start. Ha!

      Thanks so much!!

      xo Michael

  • Silvana Joanne at

    What an amazing tour! Very unique but at the same time true to the Fall season! Loved it! Best, Silvana

  • Candice at

    Beautiful fall decorating Michael! Your house is so beautiful but so approachable, makes me wish I could just move right in. I have to ask – the grey felt and leather basket with the throws – where is it from? And the throws with the leather, so clever. Are they DIY with belts or do they come that way?

  • Bethany at

    I love this tour! All the color is so inspiring!! You have a beautiful and creative home!

  • Julia@Cuckoo4Design at

    Such a stunning home and attention to detail in your decor. Love it

  • Bird at

    absolutely gorgeous!! So many inspiring ideas! ♥

  • Traci @ Beneath My Heart at

    Michael! SERIOUSLY?!! Every room in your home is to die for!! I seriously cannot stop looking at them! Every detail is perfection! Thank you for being so inspiring!! xoxo

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Awe! Traci. Thank you!! 🙂 That means so much coming from you. …and right back at ya!

      xo Michael

  • Carrie at

    Hi! I seem to do okay with furniture but I LOVE the way you have used complimentary paint colors from room to room. I tend to paint everything white so I do not have to deal with it. 🙂 Will you share the paint colors you are using in your rooms? So peaceful and gorgeous! xoxoxo

  • Carrie at

    I just found all the colors on your blog post! All of my trim is Extra White from SW in my home so adding a few complimentary walls colors will be easy! Can’t wait to get started! Thank you!!

  • Mary at

    Michael, I’ve been folllowing IBC for awhile now but was always anxious to comment. But I have to stop creeping and actually say something after your tour, hahaha. Your home is absolutely beautiful. You make it seem so easy for people like me, first time homeowners looking for their own personal style. The fresh flowers are doable for anyone, but they look perfect in your home! Fall is my favorite season and was so excited to get the update with the tour! I’m sure you hear it all the time, but you are truly inspiring and have such a great mind for home ideas.

    Enough of the creep, hahaha, can we see picture of your entryway? Caught a glisp of a great bench in there, i think.

    Keep inspiring us to find our creative side!
    Mary

  • Sara at

    Everything is absolutely beautiful, Michael! I love that your home is infused with simple fall colors and yet still retains the essence of ‘YOU’!!

  • Emily@The Wicker House at

    I Was so excited to find you on this fall tour. Your home makes me Smile. It looks like such a Happy Place to be. And oh My Gosh, Your acorn pumpkins are the Coolest!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Aww! Well, I’m glad I’m here too. 🙂

      Thank you, Emily.

      xo Michael

  • Annette at

    Hi I would like to know where you found the red step ladder/seat. I love it!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Annette, it’s actually vintage. I found it at a local thrift shop.

      xo Michael

  • Sheila at

    Just back from a long trip . . . and wow when I logged onto your site. Picture perfect home . . . .do you live there? 🙂 I love your design style — creative, colorful, clutter free, and unique. I am going to copycat a lot of your ideas to celebrate the fall season within our home. I like every single thing but the wreath really popped out for me. Your choice of lighting, rugs and furniture is absolutely wonderful. And, of course, the cats are a warm, soft, reality that enhanced the feel of the home. Thank you for sharing.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Wow. What a beautiful compliment. Thank you so much Sheila! 🙂

      xo Michael

  • Taylor Bennett at

    Amazing space, sir! Love Love Love! We have a lot of the same pieces:) Now I’ll just know how to style mine! Ha

  • Courtney at

    Always love your home and style Michael – and your home is so gorgeous decorated for fall! It is hard to choose a favorite element – but I am so loving your living room and that fireplace! Those branches, the tiny pumpkins, the flowers- perfection! 🙂

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Awe, you are so sweet Courtney. That means so much coming from you. Thanks!!

      xo Michael

  • Alison at

    Your home is amazing! Where did your coffee table come from? I’ve been searching all over for the same style but their either too small or too big with our sectional.

    Again, gorgeous and I love your blog. You are incredibly talented.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Alison – it’s the Halle Coffee Table from Wayfair. 🙂

      And thank you!!
      xo Michael

  • Regina Harrison at

    I’m drawn to the accent pillows that are placed in the upholstered, curved-back chairs at your dining room table. Can you share where you found them?

    I admire people who have a talent for mixing country farmhouse, with traditional, with eclectic, with elegant, with contemporary, with flea market find, with COLOR (!!), with neutrals…just beautiful!

    Thank you for sharing your home with us!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Thanks so much, Regina – that would certainly explain my style. Haha! 🙂 And I LOVE IT!

      Those pillows were part of Target’s Spring Threshold line. I don’t think they are sold anymore. 🙁

      xo Michael

  • BonBon @ Farmhouse40.com at

    Hi Michael……your home is absolutely beautiful. Love how light and airy it feels, while also being very inviting and charming. Perfection! Thanks for sharing.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Thank you!! 🙂

      xo Michael

  • Iris Sennhenn at

    Hi Micheal,

    what an awesome Home you have …. I really like the poufs in your living room (white with yellow pattern) . Could you pls let me know where to buy those kind of pouf or even the same ones?
    I’m a jewelry designer in Germany, but also have some homestaging clients.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Well, I can tell you they are from Target. However, that was over a year ago and I don’t believe they sell them anymore.

      Hope that helps.
      xo Michael

    Oh my gosh. Are you our color twin, separated at birth? LOVE how bright and fun your home is! Can we come ova? ;} OUR FAVE is that dresser in the bedroom, though! LOVE LOVE LOVE it all!

  • Karen at

    First visit here, but it won’t be the last. Subscribing to your email list.
    Blessings, Karen

  • cindy at

    Linked over from Thistlewood Farms…. I love your dining room rug, with the chairs, with the wall color, with the chandalier. So much inspiration and heart in every room, just like Karianne’s. I am subscribing now!

  • PInk Camellias at

    Your house is so cute! So bright and cheerful! I LOVE your light fixtures – they are AWESOME! I don’t get to have any fun light fixtures because my husband grew up in Savannah, and it’s so darn hot there that you have to have a ceiling fan in every room. So, of course, I have a ceiling fan in almost every room! Thanks for sharing your home – it looks great!

  • Jennifer @ Town and Country Living at

    Your home is charmingly stunning! I love your use of color – eye capturing but not overpowering. Every room is perfection!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Thank you so much!!
      xo Michael
