Summer Tour of Homes

by Chris on June 4, 2013

Hello there! I love myself a good home tour (who doesn’t?), so I’m happy to be participating in Gina’s annual Summer House Tour. If you’re new and coming from Jen (aka nicest girl EVER), welcome! If you’re not new here, “Oh hey.” Just kidding! I’m gonna keep it small on words and big on pictures! I hope you enjoy the tour!

Can you tell me more about the drapes in your daughter’s room? I am in the midst of creating a big girl room for our foster daughter, and I am using those exact colors! I’m having trouble finding curtains in the right color, and all the fabric I find in this color seems to be quilting weight rather than home decor fabric. Thanks!

Sarah Yoder June 4, 2013 at 8:35 am

Gorgeous pictures. I especially like the reclaimed wood wall in the boys bedroom!

Roeshel June 4, 2013 at 9:08 am

Wow, Chris! Your home is stunning. I love the reclaimed wood plank wall, the prettiest girl’s room I ever saw and your gorgeous living room. Beautiful job!

Kim @ Plumberry Pie June 4, 2013 at 11:35 am

Awesome tour! Happy almost summer! ;)

Gina @ The Shabby Creek Cottage June 4, 2013 at 11:50 am

Your home is simply beautiful! Those bookshelves make me swoon…

Thank you so much for joining!

Funky Junk Interiors June 4, 2013 at 12:50 pm

Striking! Chris, what a gorgeous tour! What really caught my eye are the drawers in that console in the reclaimed wall bedroom… super cool!

Stacey June 4, 2013 at 1:07 pm

LURV the bookshelves, your house is gorgeous! I like how everything flows. So great!

Lala June 4, 2013 at 2:25 pm

Absolutely love the repurposed wood in back of the headboard. All of every little detail. Perfection!

VegasFloorPlans June 4, 2013 at 2:27 pm

Beautiful home!

vicki dutcher June 4, 2013 at 3:18 pm

Beautiful! I adore the way you have decorated while still keeping it clean looking. Just a stunning house!!

ValenzMom a/k/a Helen June 4, 2013 at 3:35 pm

I love your home! I don’t remember EVER seeing your kitchen before. Every room has a wonderful sense of being lived in – a cozy, warm feeling that oozes style without pretentiousness. It’s like we were sisters in another life… :).

Dria @ Dio June 4, 2013 at 4:14 pm

Love seeing your home in one post! I love your whole house, you have done an incredible job I can’t pick what is my favorite thing you’ve done I love it all!

Courtney {a thoughtful place} June 4, 2013 at 7:20 pm

Chris, it is just beautiful. Every inch of it. You are so talented and have done so many beautiful projects. Fun to see all in one spot.

Lisa~ June 4, 2013 at 11:09 pm

Your home is like a breath of fresh air! I love your style….it’s what I want to be when I grow up. :) Lisa~

Connie June 4, 2013 at 11:57 pm

PLEASE can you tell me the name and brand of paint you used on the back wall of the book shelf and on the aqua table? Thank you soooooo much! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your home!! In my dreams!!

melissa*320 sycamore June 5, 2013 at 7:04 am

Chris – You have impeccable, classic taste. My favorite is still your daughter’s room. And your son’s. And that bathroom. Thanks for the eye candy this morning!! xo

jen @ Tatertots & Jello June 5, 2013 at 2:20 pm

Chris – your home is amazing. It’s so fun to see it all together. I adore the bookshelves and the way you styled them. So fun!

Geezo, I seriously LOVE your style!

Jennifer Rizzo June 5, 2013 at 8:40 pm

I have always loved your space. You have such great style and I love how you put everything together.

Marie@InteriorFrugalista June 6, 2013 at 2:19 am

Thank you for the tour. Your home is beautiful! I love how you “dressed” the bookcases.

Tracy Fry June 6, 2013 at 8:27 am

I just lurve your home, Chris, just my style. Quick question – where do you store your books? Like me, you’re an English teacher, so I know you got ‘em. :)

Ashley @ the handmade home June 6, 2013 at 10:40 am

LOVELY lovely LOVELY! Everything looks so neat and in place. I love it. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home! ;}

Stacy June 6, 2013 at 12:05 pm

You have a bright, cheerful, lovely home. I especially like your daughter’s room. Thanks for the tour!

Danielle June 17, 2013 at 2:21 pm

I love your home!

Very curious what your kitchen wall color is. Also, did you paint your cabinets yourself? They’re gorgeous!

Chris August 7, 2013 at 8:19 pm

That color eludes me to this day. I wish I could tell you. If I ever come across it, I’ll let you know. And I didn’t paint the cabinets (yet). :) They are semi-custom Kraftmaid if that helps! :) Thank you!!!

Angela June 19, 2013 at 10:04 am

Ummmm….can I …..move in? Gorgeous home!
