Fearless Home Features – October

This month I’m going to skip mention of what month it is, because I’m in denial (and trying to sustain that denial as long as possible) that winter is coming. Whether or not you watch Game of Thrones, it’s still true. If you’re in the northern hemisphere anyway. But I digress…suffice it to say that whatever month it is, it’s time for a round-up of October features from the #fearless home Instagram feed.

To bring any newcomers up-to-speed, #fearlesshome is an Instagram hashtag I host along with some very of talented bloggers–Arielle of Scotch & Nonsense, Cassie of Cassie Bustamante, Kimberly of Swoon Worthy, and Jenna of Rain on a Tin Roof. The purpose of the tag is to showcase the bold, different, weird, and wonderful things you guys are doing in their homes. Put briefly, I like to think this feed is an crash course in decorating with panache. Bright and moody, color, pattern, texture, planty-crazy, gallery-walls galore–you can find it all (and much, much more) in the #fearlesshome feed. I highly recommend you check it out yourself! Here are a few of my favorites from last month.

This oh-so-chic vignette from Natasha (@natasha_habermann) includes a Craigslist score that her mom made even more amazing with a coat of blue paint. The black/white/blue combo is sooo killer! Natasha is one of my favorite Instagrammers, and I guess this just goes to show fabulousness is at least partly genetic.


Even from this tiniest of sneak peeks, I am SO intrigued by Ashley’s (@biggerthanthethreeofus) new dining room wallpaper. Going all out for a shibori-print wallpaper is wayyyy bold, and I’m looking forward to seeing how Ashley rocks the whole design.


Just to be clear that fearlessness comes in all shapes, sizes, and quantities, I submit to you this wonderful entryway vignette by Nicole (@dezaarinteriors). Just one item can make such an impact! And if you have a piece of yellow furniture of any variety, you definitely get #fearlesshome cred from me.


I know how tempting it is to go neutral in an area like the kitchen, but I absolutely love how Michelle (@michellecgage) amped it up with her multi-colored backsplash. The use of different colored tile creates so much interest, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s in one of my very favorite color palettes.


Thanks so much to everyone who shared this month! I found myself thinking of this feed and all of you as I faced the prospect of painting my fireplace. Paint doesn’t make me nervous too often, but given the permanence of paint on brick, I don’t mind telling you I was SCARED. I really did actively think about all the great design I see in #fearlesshome and reminded myself–you have to take a chance. Hopefully I’ll get around to sharing the end result soon, and when I do, you will find it right there in #fearlesshome feed. I hope to see you there!

    1. That pattern was such an amazing choice! I know I’m going to be swooning over your dining room for a long time to come!

  1. These features are just gorgeous! I love hopping from host to host and seeing your own interpretations of “fearless” – I think it’s just perfect because you each show how fearlessness can be completely different depending on your personal style!

    1. Thanks, Brynne, I so agree! I definitely like to look at fearlessness from all kinds of angles. If it becomes just one thing, then that defeats the whole purpose. I just love seeing people taking chances!
