The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
Our home has seen it’s fair share of changes over the past few years. It’s also safe to say it will see plenty more. I like switching things up, always finding a new way for things to function even better than before. I was looking at our home tour page the other day, and realized how out dated that tour is…
Because I didn’t do a spring home tour this year, today’s post is more of an “updated home tour”. It focuses on the projects and things we have accomplished, but it’s not filled with too much “fluff”. I’ve been patiently waiting for the trees to bud out, and they’re just starting. Soon, I’ll share a post with all of the beautiful branches, which are my very favorite way to decorate throughout the seasons. It’s also free, so you can’t beat it!
Speaking of our home tour page, I get so many e-mails asking “Where did you get that…?”. I’m working on creating a home source page, which I think will really help you find what you’re looking for. I’ll let you know once it’s live.
So, here’s what our home currently looks like.

After I went through these pictures, I was once again reminded how much I am a “neutral” girl. There’s not a lot of color in our home, and I rely on my accessories to bring in the fresh color. When we don’t have fresh tree clippings, our home stays pretty neutral. It’s pretty much my favorite, because when I do want to add color, the foundation is already there.
Our kitchen is one of the only rooms we haven’t made a bunch of changes to. It’s not because I don’t want to, they just happen to be on the expensive side. I’m saving my pennies, and don’t worry, I’m not paining our cabinets. 🙂
In the mean time though, I do really love my kitchen. I spend the majority of my time in here, and it functions like a dream.
Believe it or not, our stackable crates were one of our very first DIY projects. I love them even more than the day we made them, and it’s so amazing to be able to sell them to others in our online shop.

Our breakfast nook recently had a bunch of changes. You can read about the evolution of this room here. It’s come a long way!
I still have a few things I’d like to change in here too, but I’m perfectly content with what it looks like today. Seriously, read the evolution post. It’s night and day difference.

From our entry way, you have a pretty great view of the whole house…
Our dining room is right off the entry…
I love how our wall shelves are visible from the window when you come up our walkway. They’re such a statement for the room, and because we have such an open floorplan, they’re really a statement for the whole house. And yes, they’ve held up beautifully.
Our dining room has also come such a long way. It’s so hard for me to think it was once blue. My how things have changed.

And here’s a few more views that give a pretty good perspective of our floorplan…
I hope you enjoyed seeing our home. I’m hosting a baby shower for my cousin on Saturday, so I’m planning on cutting a bunch of fresh tree branches. They’re finally to the point of a really pretty green, which will make them a perfect backdrop for the decorations I have planned. You know me, I’m keeping it pretty simple, but there will be plenty of fun pops of color. Baby girl will be showered in style! 🙂
I’ll share the details, and plenty of pictures, of the baby shower a bit later!
Join me as I share several easy to implement ideas that will give your home a breath of fresh air and leave you feeling excited about the changes you see by the end of the week!
