A Whimsical Fall: Decorating Inspiration

I am very blessed to be surround by creative women in my life.  My mom, who lives in Texas, is incredibly creative and talented (though she’ll never admit it).  And my mother-in-law (aka Gigi), who lives close by, has quite the creative, artistic flare when it comes to decorating.

In case you wondering, the entryway above is not my home, it’s my in-laws.  Gigi loves fall (as do I) and puts so much time and effort into decorating her home that I just had to share it with you all.  She leaves no corner untouched when it comes to fall – her attention to detail is impeccable. 

Gigi also has a home studio where she creates Art Dolls.  She doesn’t currently have a website, but hopefully she will be setting up one soon and I can introduce you all to her amazing art.

Anyway, here are some pictures I took around Gigi’s house several weeks ago.  I think it is so fun to see inside other peoples homes, don’t you?  It’s like a home tour on your computer screen!

These pumpkins are just the perfect understated touch.  I love how organic they are and seem to just fit right in.

The entrance to their home is so warm and inviting with all the pumpkins and gorgeous plants.

Wreath on the front door.
Gigi is a big Susan Branch fan so this flag is very fitting for their home.
Now let’s head inside…….
A large decorated hutch in the dining room.

Beautiful large mantle in the great room.

Another built in bookcase.

Fireplace decorated in the three-season room.

Gigi even changes out her art work every season.  Above are some of her fall and Halloween pieces.
Well, that’s it for the little tour of Gigi’s house!  Those were just some of the shots I got around their home.  If you can believe it, there is even MORE fall decor that I didn’t even capture.  Gigi does a fabulous job filling her home with joy and whimsy.  I know my girls are going to appreciate the magic she creates with her decorating style the older they get!
What is your favorite season or holiday for decorating?  I’m definitely a fall/Thanksgiving girl with Christmas as a very close second.

  1. I love Gigi’s style. Wonderful shots, thank you for sharing!

  2. I love her home, and I would decorate far more than I do, if I had another home to store it all in between seasons. Where does she keep it all?!

  3. What amazing decor. Lovely. I was just saying to my hubby that I should start decorating for the seasons. We have no room in our small house to store more stuff. We are going to have to find a way. I think the kids will love it. Beautiful house as well.

  4. Oh, Lindsay… Gigi’s house and decorations are to die for! That archway outside, decorated with the little pumpkins: what a gorgeous idea. Man, this woman has some beautiful home and great ideas! Thanks for sharing. More pics please! Post more of her home! I, too, love to see inside other people’s homes. Especially a gorgeous one such as this.

  5. That all looks so elegant (my favorite kind of decorating!)

  6. I’m interested in hearing more about her “three season” room. Everything is so beautifully done.
