Beautiful Homes of Instagram is one of my favorite series here on HomeBunch and it feels even more special when these homes are decorated for a special time of the year, such as Fall.
Ashley from @modernglamhome, beautifully decorated many spaces of her gorgeous home and she’s sharing all of the details with us today. Keep reading to learn a few decorating tricks by this talented homeowner:
“Hi! I am Ashley, the voice behind Modern Glam a lifestyle blog where I share my love of home decor, fun DIY projects and healthy recipes. My husband and I have been renovating our California bungalow since we moved in 9 years ago. My husband, Nick is a general contractor and I own a women’s clothing store, Flaunt Boutique. We live in the San Francisco bay area with our 2 young kids.
When Luciane asked me to contribute to her inspiring series, Beautiful Home of Instagram, my jaw hit the floor. I’m just your average suburban mom who also loves to create a beautiful home. I love the home decor community on Instagram and I get so much inspiration and many of my design ideas from there.
So, let me show you around my cozy California bungalow home that we purchased 9 years ago. When we first bought our home, it was a blank slate. The previous owner didn’t do any improvements so the house needed some serious TLC, which is perfect for me!”
There are lots of things that we love about our home, but one of the first things that drew me to this one when we were looking was the front porch.
Fall decor makes this front porch feel even more magical! I am loving the string lights and the faux candles. What a nice touch!
Outdoor Sconce: Rejuvenation.
I like to use as many natural elements in my fall porch decor as possible. Lots of pumpkins, cornstalks, hay bales and mums were all that I needed to create this fun and festive neutral fall front porch!
The exterior paint color is “Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter”.
Our hanging chairs are one of our favorite spots to sit and watch the kids play and visit with our neighbors.
Hanging Chairs: Serena & Lily.
This is how Ashley decorates this space for summer: “I added a small table out here for setting drinks on and used an affordable circle rug to ground the space. New pillows and cute beach towels bring this space to life.”
Pillows: Serena & Lily.
Knit Pillows: Target.
Beach Towels: Serena & Lily.
Our front door is by Pella and is painted Clark and Kensington’s Mountainside Vista. Although, I admit, I love to change the color of my front door. This is the 3rd color it’s been in 3 years and I’m already contemplating another change!
This is the beautiful and talented, Ashley from @modernglamhome. I am sure you guys will love her home as much I do! 🙂
My personal design rule is to buy all my furniture in neutral shades. Having a neutral foundation makes it’s easy to switch out the accessories for each season.
Pair of Stools: Serena & Lily.
Rattan Chair: Serena & Lily.
Fireplace tile is Calcutta gold fish scale tile.
I am loving seeing Ashley’s puppies around the house… They’re adorable! 🙂
Side table is from Serena & Lily.
A quick and easy update I made for summer was creating this hat wall. I pulled all the sunhats out of my closet and hung them on the wall!
Draperies: here – similar.
Hardware: here – similar.
All of our walls are painted Benjamin Moore’s Cotton Balls. I love the soft white color that has a touch of cream in it. We also painted our ceilings and trim the same color but in different sheens. This makes the room seem larger when all the colors are the same.
My walls are a satin finish, where the trim is semi gloss and the ceiling is flat. This creates a cohesive look that expands the room and makes it seem bigger!

My style is pretty eclectic. I love to mix different styles and use new, modern and antique pieces in the same space. My dining room is a perfect example of that. We have a rustic farmhouse table made of reclaimed oak with an ornate trestle base. I paired this traditional piece with modern lucite chairs. I love the mix of old and new!
To stick with the modern farmhouse fall table theme, I added some casual yet neutral plaid napkins and a white pumpkin to each place setting.

Fall Tablescape: “A mix of bay leaves, olive branches and rosemary stems were all I needed to create this fall centerpiece. Add in a few neutral white pumpkins, some candles and it’s the easiest centerpiece to create!”
One of the first rooms we tackled when we first moved in was our kitchen. We originally painted the cabinets and installed new Calcutta Gold marble countertops. This spring, we underwent another remodel and replaced all the cabinetry, added open shelving and integrated appliances. The new design is more efficient and I love the warmth that the open shelves bring to this space!
Lighting: Visual Comfort.
Our kitchen cabinets are maple with Benjamin Moore’s Simply White paint.
Kitchen Faucet: Delta.
Backsplash is a 3×6 white subway tile.
The open shelving in our recently remodeled kitchen are from Ultra Shelf and you can order any size shelf to fit your space.
Hardware: Schoolhouse Edgecliff Pulls.
Metal Basket: McGee & Co.
I love the white oak and the warmth that it adds to our kitchen.
Countertop: Calcutta Gold Marble countertop.
The breakfast room features a custom banquette and a marble tulip dining table from Design within Reach.
Stay Awhile Sign: Etsy.
Lucite Chairs: All Modern.
Another big project that we completed this year was to replace all the hardwood flooring. It’s amazing what a difference it makes in the overall feel and brightness inside your home.
Pink is my favorite color and our bedroom and closet are a true reflection of this love. My husband even loves this color. Pink in the bedroom is very romantic and has a glow at night that is ethereal.
Platform Bed: Pottery Barn.
Pillows are from Serena & Lily.
Blush Pink Throw Pillow: Target.
Our bedroom is one of the only rooms that is painted a color other than white. I chose Benjamin Moore’s Gentle Butterfly.
Headboard: West Elm.
Mongolian Lamb Stool: West Elm.
Sconces: Savoy House.
Throw: Anthropologie (Discontinued).
African Juju Hat: here – similar.
Another favorite room in our home is our walk-in closet. It’s honestly what sold me on our house. We updated the space 5 years ago with built in cabinets, leopard carpeting and beautiful finishes. It’s a true reflection of my personal style.
Our leopard carpet is from a local carpet store.
I painted the ceiling and walls Calamine by Farrow and Ball. It was the perfect jumping off point for the rest of the room.
Lighting: Arteriors Osgood Pendant.
Our master bathroom is done in classic carrera marble. This room took almost a year to complete! That’s the life of living with a contractor for your husband.
The baskets under the sink hide everyday items such a hairbrushes, my hairdryer and curling iron, and extra towels. All of my makeup and toiletries are stored in the nearby linen closet. Because we only have 2 sets of towels and sheets, there is ample room for all the normal bathroom toiletries and beauty products!
Bathroom apothecary console is from Pottery Barn.
Bathroom Faucets: Pottery Barn.
Mirrors: Pottery Barn.
Sconces: Pottery Barn.
Shower Tiles: Carrara Marble.
One of my favorite parts of our bathroom is the large soaking tub. It is the prettiest focal point and serves as a true sanctuary after a long day.
Lighting: Visual Comfort – one of my favorite chandeliers!
Tub: Kingston Brass.
Since we live in the bay area, California, where the housing prices are insane and lot sizes are minuscule, creating an outdoor living area as an extension of our indoors allows us to expand our living space. And with California weather, we can use these areas 9 months out of the year.
Pillows: Serena & Lily.
Ottoman Coffee Table: Serena & Lily.
Rattan Egg Chair: Target’s Opalhouse.
A long sofa meant for the outdoors is soft and neutral. This allows me to change the colors year to year. I offset the sofa with two oversized chairs and added a small outdoor coffee table in the middle. This allows us to set food or drinks on it.
The sofa we have had for a few years now. It was a great find from the Restoration Hardware outlet. I love that the cushions are a soft gray that make them completely versatile to new color schemes!
Our backyard isn’t big, but we love to spend time out here and gather with friends and family.
We also recently updated our side yard and have a great space for making s’mores and enjoying a glass of wine or two. 😉
Chairs: Serena & Lily.
Pillows: Serena & Lily.
