Today I have the very special honor of having my dear friend Larissa Jenkins as a special blog guest to kick off the hop (see full hop schedule at the end of this post). She will be introducing you to her beautiful historic home, the “Welch House.” Larissa has been the co-host of the Hauntingly Beautiful Decor Halloween Link party here on my blog and also the hashtag party on Instagram. She has amazing vintage style and loves to hunt for beautiful thrifted treasures for her dreamy abode. Her home is just perfect for Halloween! Get ready for some really beautiful Halloween decorating inspiration! Enjoy!
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.
When you first enter our home our butler, “Fred”, will be there to greet you. He is a favorite when guests visit.
Hello dear readers! Have you been enjoying all the fall home tours lately? There are truly so many beautiful homes decorated for this glorious season, especially on Instagram! Today is a very special day here at Follow The Yellow Brick Home as I have invited my talented Instagram decorating friend, Laura @theclassiccottage to be my special guest blogger! She has amazing style and will be sharing her own home as well as some other beautiful Instagram accounts which have been inspiring her lately! Grab yourself a cup of coffee or tea and get ready to see some really beautiful photos. Take it away Laura!!!!
What’s not to love about fall? Pumpkins, hayrides, hot apple cider, corn mazes, pumpkin spice lattes, and of course, beautiful, cozy fall décor are just a few of the fun and exciting things we enjoy during this season. I have a confession to make. I’ve been scanning some beautiful accounts on Instagram for some fall décor inspiration and I am amazed at what I’ve found! It is always so much fun to see other’s creativity, interpretation and perspective on fall décor.
I’ve observed traditional fall color palates, warm oranges, reds and yellows, to neutral tones, blues, greens and whites. Some have created an entirely new color scheme that is both rich and elegant using plum, greens and whites. Let’s take a little tour of some beautiful homes decorated for the season.
Welcome everyone to my “Harvest Home” early fall home tour! I am so thrilled you are visiting today! If you are coming over from A Delightsome Life and the previous tours on our Harvest Home Blog Hop, then I know you have already been inspired by a wonderful group of talented ladies and their beautiful homes. 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!
