My Fall House Tour

My Fall House Tour

Hello, friends! As always, I’m so glad you’re here. Not only am I inviting you in to my little house for a fall tour, but today you’ll get to visit FIVE other blogger friends who are on the tour with me! So fun, yes?   You’ll find their links below.





If you’re new to Onerror, I’m Larysa and I’ve been blogging here since 2007! I’m also the author of a whole bunch of books you can find here. I have two more on the way (books, not babies in case that was confusing, my babies are almost all grown now) and I’ve actually been up to my ears in edits the past few week. But even though it’s been a wild few weeks, I LOVE fall most of all so it’s fun to have y’all over!

Today I’ll give you a tour through my main rooms so you can get the feel of our humble white brick house! We live in Seattle. We moved into our house three years ago this month, and we’re still making this place our own. It’s quite a process. So far we’ve painted inside and out, remodeled our kitchen, added two Dutch doors, lots of shutters, blinds, light fixtures, and some flooring and have done quite a bit of work outside, too. You can see our brand new outdoor deck here.

We have two furry pups, Jack and Lily, so you’ll see them running through here and there. They LOVE tour days and having people over.

My Fall House Tour

About eleven years ago I started an annual Fall Nesting series here on the blog. My philosophy has always been to keep everything pretty simple and just enjoy the slow unfolding of the season as I feel inspired.

So while I did unexpectedly find some pumpkin/gourds for my porch while I was at Trader Joe’s yesterday, for the most part I don’t do a lot of “fall decor.” But I am a big fan of just bringing in more cozy textures and looking forward to all the familiar fall nesting rituals!

Alright, enough of me chatting. Come on in and make yourself right at home.  You’ll find links to sources throughout the post and at the end, but feel free to ask questions in the comments. I love it when you say hi and let me know you’re here!

And….I’ll be quiet now so you can get on your way. Enjoy the tours! :)

Curtains on Doorways: Creative Concealments

Curtains on Doorways: Creative Concealments

Happy Monday! I saw quite a few sweet comments and questions last week about the curtain hung in a doorway in my entry. So, I thought I might as well answer the questions and do a post for inspiration, too!

I had forgotten that I hadn’t mentioned this curtain before, but I actually hung it over the holidays! The curtain idea was one I had been considering for a long time, but I just wasn’t sure if I should do it or not. When I found that cute gray striped curtain panel with the pompoms at Target, I thought I might as well give it a try!

 and two similar pom pom curtains:  and 

 / Lights – (specific details in this post)

The panel is hung from a simple white pressure rod (like ), so it’s super easy to remove if we decide we don’t want it down the road. I just tied the curtain back with a string and cup hook, fancy!

It might not be everyone’s cup of tea or work in every house, but I love it and it’s not permanent, so why not?

We’ve considered so many options for that doorway, including walling the opening off entirely (and creating a new bedroom / bathroom entrance), putting in a new door there, or some combination of a building a new bathroom and door area.

All of our master/bathroom ideas are still on the table (and I’ll share new ideas soon). Since we still haven’t decided what or when (or if) we’re going to make a bigger change, the curtain was a simple solution for now.

The curtain actually solved a few issues, it was easy to do and the budget was right! It made our hall much cozier and quieter and brought a little personality to the space. The curtain creates the visual entrance to the “master suite” and it offers a bit more privacy when we have guests.

Often I feel like we make decorating and design problem solving far too complicated and overly expensive. Even if there is a “better” or more perfect way to do something, I really love it when a simpler solution is used.

We’ve hung curtains in doorways in some of our old houses, too. I think they really can help to define or separate spaces, make a charming design statement as well as help to cozy up a drafty doorway.

As long as we’re talking about this subject, I thought you might enjoy some other inspiration photos for curtains in doorways.

Enjoy!
