Tour our Home


We bought our sweet little cottage home in 2013, it was love at first sight.
This house was built in 1924 so it is filled with lots of old charm.
The house had been fully remodeled prior to us buying it. You can take the before and after tour HERE. By doing so, you will see that a lot of thought and love went into this home.
I feel lucky to live here.
On the exterior of the house, I have painted all of the trim white.  I have also painted the front door in Valspar-Night Scape. (post)
So come on in!
I have a lot of fun switching up this entryway wall. (Post)

When you first walk into the home you are greeted into our open living/dining area.  
 The biggest change I made to the living room was to add barn wood planks to the mantel, which  instantly added more character into the room. (post)

 A set of french doors lead you into our home office, which I like to refer to as "the Sunroom" because of all of the windows.

  The sun just pours it's light into this room.  It is a very comfortable and relaxing room to be in.

Back into the main living area is the dining room.  My favorite thing in the room are the corner hutches, original to the home.

Off of the dining room is the Kitchen.
I recently gave our Kitchen a second makeover. You can see more of our Kitchen Here

I painted the cabinets twice. The first time from dark cream to light cream (seen here) the second time from light cream to white.
I painted the tile backsplash (seen here).  And I painted the wood range hood mount (seen here)  It was a tough decision to paint over the wood, but I'm happy I did, it really brightened up the room.

Here is the main bath of the home. It is the one my boys use most, so I painted it blue and gave it a coastal look.  Even though we live in the country, I am very drawn to coastal styles, which you will see a lot of in our home. (see more of our bathroom in this post)

Speaking of my boys, here is a peek into their Minecraft themed bedroom. (Post)
Which includes a large chalk board wall (Post)
The Master Bedroom is located upstairs in the attic.  (post)

There is also the Master Bathroom. (post)

And lastly, here is a look at our backyard where we have a really fun play house.
 We use the bottom portion of it as a covered patio.

And that my friends concludes the tour of our cottage home.

Thanks so much for stopping by,



  1. Emily, Your home is beautiful! You are a very talented girl! Although I have a mountain home in California, 25 minutes from Sierra at Tahoe to be exact, my cousin is in Rigby! She has a really beautiful home on 25 acres and horses. She loves it there :) I saw a pin on pintrest,it was your very cool ski stocking hanger photo! My house has lots of red year round and I love,love, love that idea. Some women have a natural talent for decorating and new and fresh ideas and you do! I like the darker wood in your kitchen it does break up the room, and gives the tiled wall above your range special attention. The light shades above your kitchen table accent that as well and it pulls the room together in a very nice way. I like it. When your dishwasher dies I would go with a stainless steel but I was not sure what color your sink was? Your home could be in a magazine it is so well decorated! Nice Job!

  2. You have a truly beautiful home. I love its history, and the soothing colors you have used throughout.

  3. You have such an attractive house, It is also very helpful for people for getting idea for making a house in which everyone can stay comfortably. Keep giving updates.
