Here in North Carolina, we’re entering what’s known as “False Fall.” The weather is beginning to cool, and the leaves are starting to turn, but after more than two years of living here, I know we’re due for some more hot weather before we enter actual fall.

So, of course, we had to capture a house tour video to document the house in its magical state.

There was a 10-year-period where everyone (including me) was doing black or almost-black rooms or walls. These days, we want something moody and romantic, but we want warmth back in our lives.
