    Halloween Blog Hop

    Hello and welcome to my home! I am so very excited and honored to be  introducing the “Welch House” and sharing my Halloween Home Tour here today on Amber’s amazing blog! Thank you so much Amber for this opportunity! Let’s get started!

    I’ve always had a fondness for Halloween, but I must say it has definitely grown since my  Husband and I purchased our 120 year old home, The “Welch House” almost four years ago. Our home was built in 1900 and is very popular in our small town. The locals refer to it as the “Welch House” named after the prominent family that built the home. My husband and I are the third family to own the home. I have been asked many times by locals if there is a ballroom on the third floor. Many of them remember stories being told of dances taking place in our third floor during the First World War era. I do not know if that is true or not, but our attic is very large and could accommodate many people. I have also been told that long ago our home was featured in a book, which I am trying to track down. Many years ago Welch House was named one of the “Most Stately” Homes in our town and was given a plaque to commemorate this achievement. Sadly, while the other nominated homes still have their plaques displayed proudly in their foyers, ours was missing when we purchased the home. I hope to find it someday!

    Welch House is truly my dream home, and my greatest wish is to make her beautiful again!  The home creates a beautiful backdrop for holiday decor…especially Halloween decor. With its creaky floors, the beveled glass windows, and even the chandeliers, it all adds to an elegant but spooky atmosphere. I Love French and European decor so I try to incorporate those aspects into my Halloween decor as well.

It has been such a pleasure to coordinate and host this blog hop! Now it’s time for me to finish up the tour by inviting you into my 1921 yellow brick home!

    On this tour you will see how I decorate for early fall as I am still transitioning into the season, taking cues from nature. It has been 80 degrees lately and the leaves are only barely starting to change here in Eastern, KY, so it’s still a couple of weeks before I go all out on my fall colors and pumpkin extravaganza. I have decorated our front porch very simply to start off the season with a big basket of white mums sitting on a vintage chair by the front door. Last week I went a friend’s yard sale and she gifted me this big white pumpkin right out of her garden. I am really loving how the white mums and pumpkin look with the yellow bricks too!

    Neutral Cozy Cottage: Spring Living Room Tour

    Follow The Yellow Brick Home Living Room

    Welcome to our neutral “cozy cottage” living room decorated for spring!

    amazing painted stairs painted stair runner grain stripe

    Come on in! The first thing you see when you walk through our front door is our staircase with painted stair runner and gallery wall.

    gallery wall with old mirrors and frames painted stairs

    I really love this little gallery wall. I used antique mirrors and vintage picture frames, two of my favorite things to collect!  I am always on the lookout for more! When we removed the carpet the stairs were in really bad shape. There wasn’t time to redo the floors since we were moving in right before Christmas, so we decided to paint a grain stripe runner with colors inspired from some of my old vintage suitcases.
