House Envy, Laura's Home Tour

Thanks so much to Cassie at Primitive & Proper for sharing my home tour on her blog last Thursday. If you haven't been over to her blog, check it out! 

Thanks to Cassie for getting the ball rolling... Welcome inside! 

We added on this patio a year after moving in. It started as a square cement slab with not a whole lot of character!
Last year we updated our kitchen by painting our espresso stained cabinets gray and replacing the brown and carmel colored counter tops with a white quartz island, a black granite perimeter and white chevron back splash. See the before pictures here.

Our sun room which connects our garage to the kitchen used to be the playroom when the kids were young. A big ugly closet stood where we built in this mudroom storage area. See before pictures here. Directly across from it we built a shoe bench, book bag and homework station. 

My husband and I finished the office about 4 years ago. He added all the trim work and I painted the baseboards, trim and doors black and the walls a soft white. This is one of my favorite rooms and where all the blogging action happens!

The next few photos are a sneak peek at our front sitting room and dining room which we have been updating and slowly revealing on the blog in the last few months. You can see the master plan here

Our basement is a mix of rustic and modern design. We finished it about three years ago. 

The bar mirror was built from salvaged pillars, corbels and a beam that we striped down pieced together and painted to look weathered. See more details on the bar here
Our lofted toy room has been a great place to store toys and play. See more details on the our play space here

I made my sons desk from an old mid century modern sewing desk we found on the side of the road. I made his hanging pendant from a basket from Hobby Lobby. The details are here

Cheers! {Laura}
