Our Home Tour

The most compelling feature about home design for me, is the interjection of my passions and personality into my space. I was honestly a bit nervous about sharing our home on Design Sponge yesterday. Your encouragement about it meant the world! Thx.

I love celebrating everyday and desire our home to exemplify my passions and love for that. You can see the full sneak peak, if you’d like and below are the rest of the photos that I loved of our home. I will be posting a few more home DIY’s and everyday celebrating posts this spring and doing this photo shoot with Lemarire photography seems like the perfect jumping off point for a new season.

With two active toddlers running around and a business to run, our home needs to wrinkle well. It needs to be able to withstand a bit of daily chaos and still look pretty. I include vintage and thrifted furniture painted in bright hues, a deep recovered sofa and small details to make this a reality for us. Read on for the rest of the tour.

Small details like a built in cabinet that I cleared of our china to make room for jars of sprinkles, brings in a playful touch to the home’s design. The wall makes me happy every time I walk by it. Another wall I love is the family photo wall, where I nailed in kid height frames from the front to ensure that little hands would not grab them off but could enjoy the photos.

In the kids room, because of space, I opted to go vertical with the play. Hanging oversize alphabet blocks on the wall (tutorial here) and large boards covered with felt (tutorial here) for creative play also doubles as focal artwork for the room.

PS. One other photo of our roll away coffee table from this shoot.
