Omaha Home Entryway September 2022

Each year, I look forward to all four seasons. While I really enjoy my summers outdoors, especially by the lake, autumn will always reign supreme in my heart. Windows open, leaves changing, the scents of spices and woodsy candles mingling in the air…you blink and it’s gone, but oh, how I cherish this time of year! And to experience the fall season in the family-friendly Midwest—that’s a combination that just can’t be beat, in my book.

I suspect the Keeblers, whose home is featured on page 36, feel much the same way. The Missouri family moved to an old farmhouse in the center of Omaha and remodeled the gem, making it their own. With a big corner lot for a garden, a wrap-around porch, and Dutch doors to the yard, the home is a slice of country in the city. 

If you’re a fan of day trips, fall is the perfect time to trek down to Arbor Day Farm in Nebraska City for a day of outdoor fun, or venture to a nearby apple orchard. Read our Harvest column on page 28 for some tips on choosing the best fruit. 

OmahaHome also features a piece on interior designers’ Roger + Chris’ new Airbnb project. The Aksarben home is full of nods to country living and Nebraska life. The two creatives even designed and installed their own custom wallpapers for the property featuring paper dolls, woodland scenes, cows, and other rural designs. Giddyup, partner!

On a personal note, two special men in my life are celebrating birthdays in September. Happy birthday to my son, Jake, and my father, Bob! Cheers to fall, ya’ll!
