Welcome to my 2020 fall home tour. This year I am so inspired by the Scottish art of coorie – or cozy! Come see how I infused my California home with a little bit of Scottish influence and design.
I am so excited for this week’s Seasonal Simplicity fall home tours hosted by Krista, The Happy Housie. If you came over from her tour, welcome! I can’t wait to show you around and tell you how my fall home tour was influenced this year.
2020 Fall Home Tour
Last fall, my mom, two sisters and I took the adventure of a lifetime and went to Scotland and England for a ten day whirlwind trip filled with kilts, whiskey, Highland coos and afternoon tea.
I picked up a few treasures on our trip and I used them to decorate my home for fall.
I was also so inspired by the Scots’ general lifestyle and ease of living. See, the Scottish have a word to describe this lifestyle, called “coorie” which is very similar to the Danish hygge.
Both hygge and coorie center around the art of intentional living, savoring the moment and creating cozy spaces.
So, welcome to my Scottish inspired fall home tour! I mixed in a few plaid tartans, soft colors and antiques to make my home feel clean, cozy and bright for the season.
Fall Home Tour with Pink and Plaid
There’s something about the soft browns, tans, creams and pale pinks that remind me of Scotland. The colors used in design, especially in Edinburgh are always inspired by nature.
The browns come from the earth, the creams from the harvested wheat and the pinks from the beautiful sunsets.
My fall home this year brings back wonderful memories of our adventures across the pond.

Scottish-Inspired Cozy Fall Home
I am definitely drawn to a more minimal approach to decorating this year. I think part of it has to do with the chaotic world outside, but this simpler decor is making my home feel more like a sanctuary for our family.
You can read my tips How To Create A Minimalist Fall Home and see how I pare down my decor for a simpler look.
I love all the different tartans and wool blankets. And I even added a few of them to my shop for fall. I found this incredible company out of Edinburgh that uses recycled wool.
The fringe on them is one of my favorite parts. And they are reasonably priced and durable too!
Even my fall mantel this year is inspired by our trip to Scotland. A bundle of wheat, some antiques and gold accents remind me of the scenery and rich history of the U.K.
And you can replicate this look pretty easily too. Check out the details HERE.
Neutral Fall Decor
Neutral decor is really speaking to me this fall. And my fall home tour is filled with neutral colors, textures and accessories.
Now, this doesn’t mean your home has to be boring!
And adding in patterns that are soft and inspired by nature keep your space from feeling dull or drab.
Here, I have added throw pillows that have unique patterns but don’t overwhelm the room. I really like how they look with the plaid tartan blanket too!
Neutral Fall Kitchen
Now let’s continue this 2020 fall home tour in the kitchen. Similarly, the neutrals are flowing into this space.
Warm wood tones, creamy whites and lots of layers keep our kitchen feeling cozy and inviting for fall.

I love adding bits of fall to my home. Little accessories and accents that make you smile. Do you agree?
These DIY Painted Pumpkins that look like cement are one of my favorite projects for the season.
These pumpkins are so simple to create. They are made using foam or plastic pumpkins and real stems. Aren’t they the cutest?! Now, let me know if you make them too!
