house tour week

hey friends!

i’m making this week officially “house tour week”!

last week i was able to take a bunch of pics of the house when it was clean for a rare few minutes so i’ll share a new room with you each day.  if you’ve been a reader here for very long, most of this isn’t new.  but if you are new, welcome to my home!

more to come with as many details as i can remember!






  1. 1

    EEEK! So excited for the home tour! Love your home. If I can keep my rooms clean for 2 seconds, I plan to do the same. I have 3 rooms done already- could be forever!

  2. 2

    oh my gosh – LOVE LOVE LOVE the globes!!!!! that’s such a GREAT idea! and i love how you can then incorporate so many different colors :)

  3. 4

    You have a LOVELY home!

  4. 5

    Your home is beautiful.

  5. 6

    I love all the beadboard. As a homeschooler, it feels like keeping the house clean is a constant battle. But it makes me smile when it is (for 3 minutes at least) clean and tidy. Yours is inspiring and I love your use of color and of course, your school/sewing room!

  6. 7

    I love your home. I see you finished the ottoman. Job well done.

  7. 8

    You have a lovely home! It is so clean too!

  8. 9

    There are two things I love to read on blog titles:

    “random thoughts” and “house tour”


  9. 10

    I am in love with your house. Will you please come decorate mine??? Where do you find all those goodies?!

  10. 11

    LOVE your house! The globes are wonderful (and so clever). Also love the way you were able to incorporate a tool cabinet into a bedroom. WOW!

    (I’m still waiting for the day that my house is clean enough to share pics! I’m thinking about 18 years from now…ha-ha.)

  11. 12

    Your house is my DREAM house. Oh gosh, I love the colours and really love the wainscoting (sp?). Absolutely perfect to me!

  12. 13

    Your house is gorgeous! I love how you balance white and color.

  13. 14

    So beautiful!! Wow, your home is what I aspire for mine to look like. One day I will have light blue walls. :)

    I JUST posted my own home tour here with a linky party at the end for everyone to show their house tours! I would be so honored if you would be my first link to kick off “house tour week”! :)

  15. 16

    You have the most adorable home… you should write to Coastal Living Magazine, I bet they’d feature it. :-) Seeing your use of white pushes me closer and closer to making up my mind about the paint samples I’ve had taped to my walls for weeks and the cotton duck yardage (for slipcovers) that I’ve had in my online fabric store shopping cart for weeks as well. :-)

  16. 17

    Gorgeous! Love your color choices. Don’t you love it when it’s all clean AT THE SAME TIME? ;-)

  17. 18

    I love your house it’s beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

  18. 19

    Truly one of the happiest houses around! Love your colors love those globes well it’s all good. Thanks for the tour :)

  19. 20

    Love your home and all the bright colors! Can’t wait to see more!

  20. 21

    Yipee! I’ve always loved your house. Your living room is actually the inspiration for our living room redo. :)

    Will you show pictures of your back yard and front porch, too?

  21. 22

    Yes, when may I move in please:)? Your home is beautiful. So colorful, bright, clean and fun. So excited to see house tours!!SOME of my house may be ready.

  22. 23

    Might I add….the globes in the kitchen are genius!

  23. 24

    So pretty! Everything!! I loved the happy, casualness of it. Do you remember what color that blueish greenish paint is above the beadboard in a couple of the bedroom pics? So pretty!!

    Beautiful! Can you share what you have for countertops in the kitchen? I am starting a remodel and want black c-tops but am struggleing on material choice. My first choice isn’t durable enough for a family of 6. Please share!

  25. 26

    Again, I so enjoy your masterful use of color! Especially love the way you used the globes and your wonderful sewing space! Thanks so much for the tour!

  26. 27

    Love, love love your home. It looks so cozy and welcoming [and lived in!].

  27. 28

    I’d love to know some of the paint colors you’ve used in these rooms, if you know what they are. Your home is beautiful in a fun way! Love it!

  28. 29

    Oooooh, ahhhhhhhhhh. That’s the same sound I make when watching fireworks. Just beautiful.

  29. 30

    I want to live there! So bright and airy, yet very warm and inviting! LOVE your style.

  30. 31

    LOVE it…so beautiful!!! Off subject, where did you find that cakepan you used for the rainbow party?? I loved the scallops, at least I think that is what was going on…
    Thank you!!

  31. 32

    Oooh I can’t wait!! I really hope you include the beautiful paint colors on your walls!! I aboslutely adore your home and wish to someday have something as beautiful as yours!

  32. 33

    OK, I’m in L♥VE with every single room pictured! Thanks for sharing, hun!!

  34. 35

    my favorite thing… the little red kitchen hutch in the girls room [of course}.

  35. 36

    your home is beautiful. im drooling.

  36. 37

    I am by no means new around here (even though I have been too shy to comment up until recently..) but I still think you have a beautiful home :)
    It makes me really happy that your living room sofas face each other over a table- just the way it’s supposed to be- instead of the tv :) We’re here to experience our own lives, not other people’s (especailly made up characters’) – not that I’m against tv, but im much more for ‘real life’ communication!!
    I also love your craft room, but that goes without saying!

    I’m fairly new to this whole blog thing- please feel free to come and visit mine!!

  37. 38

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your house!!!! Everything about it is perfect!!! I hope you are sharing paint colors because we still have all of the builder tan and i need some color around here! I love your shade of grey and the green in the craftroom!

  38. 39

    I officially have house envy.

  39. 40

    love all the white. i might copy your kitchen someday. hope you don’t mind! :)

  40. 41

    I LOVE your house! It just seems so bright and happy :) Can’t wait to take the tour this week!

  41. 42

    I have been drooling over your coffee table since the last time you showed off your house! Where did you get it? I have been looking everywhere for a similar one! (I even printed out a picture of it to carry around so I can hopefully find one like it someday!) I LOVE everything about your house! :)

  42. 43

    i’m so excited! your home is beautiful!!

  43. 44

    {Squeal!} So looking forward to the tour. I love your house!

  44. 45

    What a wonderful house. Every spot has creativity and order. Lovely, absolutely lovely home. Thank you for the inspiration!

  50. 51

    Your home is gorgeous… the kitchen.

  51. 52

    ok seriously! My favorite part of the post was the tool box used as a night stand! My husband would LOVE that! I may have to borrow that idea!

  52. 53

    your home is beautiful, can’t wait to tour it!!

  53. 54

    This is my first time here, and your home is just so fresh and inviting! Thanks for the peak. I’ve just spent waaaaaay too much time perusing your archives. Must. Wash. Dishes. Thought I should mention, your husband’s gnarly arm on the father’s day post- my husband is a skate boarder. That is so our life!

  54. 55

    as always… i love your home!
    so fresh and inviting!
    i’ve been salivating over it for a couple years.
    question though…
    would you be willing to show us your floorplan?
    that’s what i’ve really wanted to see for a while.
    you and shaun did build it, right?
    did you find the plan online? draw it yourself?
    just curious!
    i LOVE home plans!!!
    such an obsession for me… and i love the flow to your home. :)

  55. 56

    if you ever make a visit to Georgia, would you come decorate my home. i feel like i’m looking thru a pottery barn catalog….very sweet. you have great simple style.

  56. 57

    hey girl, can’t wait to see your place in real life! We’ll be out July 15-20. So maybe I can help you slip your chair while I’m there. I would love to see you and meet your family. I’ll email when we’re there. hugs!

  60. 61

    I just got done doing our home tour. Our home is far from complete but it’s always fun to see things “in the works” too. Looking forward to all the details!

  61. 62

    To say that I am ecstatic would be an understatement! Your house is gorgeous!

      i use a singer confidence. its a relatively inexpensive machine (around $200) but i am really happy with it! i just can’t bite the bullet to get a super nice, but super expensive machine – unless someone wants to sponsor me and give me one!

    Krystal Ballah says:

    Wow, such a beautiful home! Do you happen to know where you got the frame over the bed? It’s absolutely gorgeous!

  65. 68
