You Guys, I’m so happy today because I have the opportunity to share one of my dearest friends. Though we’ve never met in person I consider this girl a true friend. We are so similar in personality and share many of the same interests. We also both share a love for vintage and antique pieces. Jordan has such a lovely home, a sweet mix of cottage meets farmhouse and I just know you’re going to love her as much as I do.
Hey, y’all! I’m Jordan, a born and raised Tennessee girl, book worm, history nerd and home décor lover. My husband and I purchased our first home two and a half years ago after he got out of the military. It’s a colonial style home that was built in the 1980’s, had been minimally maintained for years and had definitely seen better days. We’ve slowly been loving it back to life and bringing it into this millennium one DIY project at a time. I started my blog, A Blue Nest, as a way to share our home renovation journey with our friends and family and to offer encouragement to others who love home decor as much as I do!
Sadly, we don’t have a big porch to decorate, but we made the most out of our small space with some bright mums, a fun array of pumpkins from a family friend’s farm and a sweet little wreath from Homegoods.
Our entryway is really a glorified hallway, but our DIY board and batten adds a huge dose of character. Some seasonal accessories, a cotton wreath, fall flowers and a pumpkin say “Fall is here!” as soon as you walk in the door.
I love neutral fall decor as much as the next girl, but something about warm colors and textures just says Fall to me. In that spirit, I decked out our dining room with lots of faux leaves and greenery (Or orangery, as I’ve been calling it!), wood tones and layered nature inspired décor.
Our kitchen is the brightest room in our house. I love its clean and light feel, but to warm it up a bit, I’ve been mixing lots of metals and wood tones. My old Hoosier cabinet got dressed up for the season with a festive wreath from Goodwill and some Halloween paper straws.
These built in bookshelves were a DIY earlier this year and completely changed our living room. They are my favorite things to style! I recently went through and turned all of our books page out and love it so much. I added some warm wood picture frames and lots of neutral fall textures to tie it all in. Our mantle got decked out with fresh mini pumpkins and a simple acorn garland.
I recently scored a vintage typewriter and could not wait to style it for Fall. I added this simple quote (You can download the printable for free on my blog!), some vintage books, mini pumpkins from Target’s dollar spot, a monogram sign and more Fall naturals.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Y’all isn’t Jordan’s home so welcoming and warm? Every bit of it says “please come sit for a while, grab a cup of coffee and relax, am I right!? Oh how I wish she lived closer! I hope you enjoyed today’s tour and make sure to go check out Jordan’s blog A Blue Nest and show her some love on IG @abluenest
