‘Tis the season….for another home tour!
While we actually had a little snow last week and freezing temperatures for most of the week here, I’m wishing with all my might that Spring will bring it’s happy little ass here soon. Alas, living in the Tennessee Valley, you never really know what kind of weather you will end up with during this time of the year. Either way, there are quite a few of us bloggers who are opening up our doors for the Spring Home Tour this week.
You might have just hopped over here from Kristin over at Bliss at Home. I absolutely adore Kristin’s style and can’t wait to see what all she does with this new home they’ve just moved into.
If you’re new to my blog, then here’s a little background information about our home and style. We bought our current home, The 70’s Landing Pad, in November of 2015 and did renovations before moving into it in May 2016. It’s a 1970’s split-level home. We still have a few areas to finish up – it’s always a work in progress around here, including myself. I like to refer to my style as The Rolling Stones meet Conway Twitty. I’m a little country and a little rock n’ roll with a dose of glam.
I was never a fan of split-level houses, however this house just happened to have everything that we needed and more. I absolutely despised the split-foyer entry. I did my best to take the focus off the awkward entry and instead turn the attention to the pretty details like the art, rug, and chandelier.
We replaced the handrail going downstairs with this DIY Lucite one. I want to replace the metal railing with something else at some point, but for now I just painted it.
The living room is almost 100% complete. I have one wall left to figure out and then, it will be done, so be sure to come back and see the completely finished product.
A lot of this room is secondhand finds. The sofa, lamp, chandelier and coffee table are all vintage or secondhand finds. I did spray paint the coffee table gold when I got it.
The pillows were one of the final puzzle pieces for finishing this space. They added the perfect punch of color and pattern to the room. The navy velvet pillows are from a friend of mine’s shop that just opened up – SmithHonig. They specialize in vibrant colors and patterns.
The green chairs are another part of the living room that is new. I searched for chairs for this space forever and finally happened upon these. At around $200 per chair, it was a no brainer.
These chairs also got an extra dose of color with more SmithHonig pillows. I love the little tassels that come with the pillows. They just clip on, so if you don’t like them, you can take them off.
While this little part of the dining room is completed, the rest is not.
The chairs still need to be recovered as if you looked close, you’d see a few tears and paint splatters.
I also have to find something for the wall opposite that gorgeous print to balance out the space. The problem is how do you compete with that?!
The kitchen just got finished at the end of January.
It’s style is still similar to that of the living room and dining room, but more casual.
And we also prefer to have breakfast with Conway, Loretta, Johnny and June. 😉
This hall bathroom got new tile, paint and countertops before moving in.
I did recently switch out the artwork though. Before, we had cute piece of quote art from Alice in Wonderland, but the Circus needed more color in her bathroom, so she picked out a piece of Flamingo art from Lena Navarro Art.
The print is called “Pink Summer” and everytime I look at it, I’m reminded of the summer after the Circus just turned two and she carried around one of our plastic pink flamingos all summer long holding and loving on it. Art that comes with memories is the best. 🙂 It’s a beautiful piece and came matted, ready to frame.
The Circus’ room is finally done! I haven’t gotten around to writing a post detailing everything, but that will come soon!
Her room is very colorful – just like her. 🙂
The final additions to this room were the fuchsia curtains, bench and pillows.
The All Love pillow is another one from the SmithHonig Collection. If there is one thing I try to teach my kid, it’s to love often and love hard.
Master Bedroom Sitting Area
Our sitting area just got completed in January as well. Prior to that, it was essentially storage space.
We really enjoy having a space to unwind at the end of the day now.
Funny enough, our master bedroom was completed before we even moved into the house.
It has a vintage Hollywood Glam vibe going on.
And yes, that is a green carpet covered wall. 😉
The master bathroom is a good mix of masculine and feminine.
The whole bathroom was a complete gut job.
