HOME TOUR Little House of Four - Creating a beautiful home, one thrifty project at a time.: HOME TOUR

HOME TOUR


Welcome to our home!  Ten years ago a small extremely dated rancher came on the market in the neighborhood we dreamed of moving into.  It was the same neighborhood my husband grew up in years before.  I called our realtor and made an appointment right away to go check it out.  As soon as I pulled in the driveway I could see the potential.  My husband, well, he needed a little more convincing.  After a little begging and pleading he agreed it would be a good move and here we are.

I love getting involved and doing house projects myself.  There is nothing like the feeling you get after accomplishing a major house project.  Almost all the work in our house was completed by either myself, my husband or with help from very generous family and friends.  Thanks dad!

I hope you stick around for my journey as I decorate (and redecorate) our house.  Enjoy!

  9. Hello! Absolutely love your home! Do you mind posting the names of all the paint colors you chose in each room photo? Also, where did you get your bedroom furniture and linens as well as dining room furniture? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Gia! Thanks SO much for stopping by. You can find most of the paint colors in my house here: http://littlehouseoffour.blogspot.com/2014/03/paint-colors-of-my-little-house.html

      Believe it or not, our bedroom furniture is a mix of our old childhood furniture that I painted black about 10 years ago. The armoire was from Target a few years ago, the comforter is from West Elm and the pillows are a mix of HomeGoods finds and fabric that I purchased and made into pillows. The dark dining room furniture is from Crate and Barrel and the vintage server is from a local Vintage market. Hope that helps!

  11. You have such a pretty house! I love love love the curtains in the master bedroom... I'm not sure why since it's such a little thing but they just jumped out at me! Either way love the whole house!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Your home looks so comfortable. The way you added color throughout looks great. I actually used the same fabric as your master bedroom curtains for the curtains in my kitchen! I think they are my favorite curtains in our house.

  13. wow, so inspirational. Just discovered your blog and can't get over how similar our situations seem to be. We're in a small ranch that is probably going to be our forever house. We are finally getting around to renovating our master bath but I'm dying to do a kitchen and mudroom makeover/addition (and possibly a room over the garage). Your home is beautiful!

  18. Just lookin through pinterest for some homes with black interior doors and came across your blog. I love the improvements you have made to make this house your own! I see that you have kept white trim around you black doors and I think it looks great! I think I may just be off to purchase some paint and take the black door plunge!! Thanks for the inspiration. I am your newest follower, hope you will come on over to the country as well.

  21. I absolutely love your eye for home decor! I am slowly filling out her house & am glad I came across your blog for inspiration & your DIYs. I am curious as to the significance for the number 4? I have seen it featured in a few rooms. Either way, I enjoyed that little design feature.

  24. Just adore your blog and your home is incredible. I've recently moved into a new home with my two daughters and am so inspired by your posts. First of what will be many questions... paint color in the hallway? The same SW Well Balanced Beige used in other areas? Thank you so much and I'm so grateful to have found your site!

    1. Welcome, I'm so glad you found my blog! The kitchen light was purchased from Home Depot about 10 years ago. I'm not sure if they still sell the same light, but they may have something similar.

  29. I think you are a very cool visionary. I like the fact that your home is crisp & cozy not sterile nor austere. I appreciate the classic palette, which doesn't feel to be a trap ~ swap outs of accent colours for a little fun & or working really well with seasonal moods too ! Indeed I enjoyed placement as well as appointment ~ my eyes were not bored, my brain happily delighted. I've always tried to explain when asked the difference between trends vs: classics; "Most certainly a trend will end, where as the classic's will last & that's a fact" ~Roxi L.
