Today I'm super excited to be taking part in The Summer Tour of Homes with 24 of my bestest blogging buddies. If you've just hopped over from The Inspired Room, welcome to my blog! If you haven't yet had a chance to see Melissa's beautiful home, make sure you pop over and take a peek.
Before I share my home with you, here are a couple of unique things I'd like you to know...
1. We rent our home. But I don't let that stop me from making this home a reflection of my taste.
2. I am an interior designer who loves to inspire others with my design philosophy: Luxe for Less. I believe that just because you are on a budget, there's no reason why you can't make your space look well-designed and high end. You just need to think outside the box!
I hope you enjoy my home...
I just redid my entry way and will be posting about the changes in the next day or two but here's a peek...
in the meantime, you can find out how I created the amazing wall here.
Read more after the break...
This is my living room as it looked last spring. I am in the process of giving this room a few tweaks as well...stay tuned to see them.
My bedroom is getting a makeover in the near future as well...but I'm thinking I'll save the pretty sunburst mirror. ;-)
My daughter's room is full of great DIY ideas. You can read about it here.
My boys' room is also changing but I love this version. The "B" wall is one my favorite parts of the space. But I also really love the striped wall.
The kids' bathroom is so bright and friendly. It was inspired by this great chevron shower curtain. You can find out about our DIY wainscoting and download the fun artwork here.
I turned a loft space into a bedroom for one of my boys. I LOVE the way it turned out. You can read about it here.
Because we are renting, there are many things in the house I cannot change. My kitchen cabinets, counter and flooring are some of them. But that didn't stop me from sprucing up the space. You can read about that here.
Making my laundry area bright and cheerful has helped me to want to do laundry...almost.
I hope you enjoyed this peek into my home. Come back soon to see all of the changes that are taking place. And make sure to check out the rest of the amazing homes that are taking part in this fun Home Tour.
