This is our first fall on our new land and in our home and we are loving all of the surprises.
Want to know the surprise we are loving the most right now?
We have a huge apple tree!
We had no idea because we bought our land and home in the middle of winter. I have always wanted an apple tree and this home has THREE!
We have already made apple crisp and we are making another one today.
We will have more apples than we know what do to with so friends and local horses may be getting buckets of apples delivered to their homes and stables.
Another wonderful surprise is watching how the sun comes through our windows each season. It is all so new and beautiful to us. I feel like we fall in love deeper with this home and land a thousand times a week. We also were able to walk the land and clip all of the branches and flowers that we used though out the house for the tour!
I am so honored to be included in Finding Home’s Finding Fall Home Tour.
Laura has gathered so many designers and bloggers that I adore and she has done something a little different this year.
All of the homes are featured today!
You can visit all of the homes all at once, you don’t have to wait over the week and you can instantly get tons of inspiration for your own home.
All of the links will be at the bottom of this post and you won’t want to miss one of them.
Thank you Laura for inviting me back and allowing me to share our new home (I have also included a short walking tour video too).
When you first walk into our home this is part of your view.
Library and Music Room
This room is one of my favorite rooms in the house because of the positioning of the space, the huge wall of windows, the light, the view into the side garden and of course the gorgeous bookcase I designed and then had built by my brother! We love this room and how much use we get out of it. The bookcase transformed this room and it was one of the first things we had done in the home (because how long can a girl live with her books in boxes?).
If you are interested in ordering a large gallery wrapped canvas print of my art above our piano please contact us at email@example.com.
We would love to custom order one for you.
The Living Room
This room was the previous owner’s dining room but with a large kitchen table and multiple outdoor dinning spaces we thought a living room made more sense for our family. The biggest thing we did in this space was add this fireplace that I designed. I think it feels like it was original to the home.
When we moved in we had the whole inside of the house painted (ceiling, walls, baseboards) Nano White by Behr and we changed out all of the lighting. That alone made a HUGE impact on the feel of the home.
Watch the home video tour so you can understand the flow of the house a little better (if you want).
We love the beautiful levels of this home, all of the windows and the open floor plan.
The Family Room
I am only giving you a peek into this space. You will have to come back tomorrow for a special post just on the family room.
The Master Bedroom
We have never had a ranch style home before (even though nothing about this home really fits a ranch description). We are loving having our bedroom right off the living room and on the main level. We also have a fun deck off our bedroom with a hot tub that we use all throughout the winter. The stars at night out here are insane! I had forgotten how incredible the sky looks in the country at night.
The Back Deck
Off of our kitchen we have a huge deck that we are loving! It has become another room of our house and when the weather is nice you will find Kelly and I out here in the morning talking and having coffee. You can’t see in these photos but you can see the mountains from the deck and I wish I could record the sound of the birds in the morning and the sound of the wind through the pines. On this day that the photos were taken we were getting ready for our kids to have some friends over to celebrate the start of school. We grilled out, placed volleyball and ate too many s’mores.
The Side Garden
This is the last stop in the tour. I loved this space from the beginning because out of our 7 acres it is the only fenced in area and I am a sucker for gates. What is a girl to do? We have started filling the raised beds and we are working on a new cedar porch that will allow you to walk right out into the garden. My favorite part about this space has to be the view of the butte and finding one of the kids reading in the hammock.
Video Home Tour
I can’t wait to show you later some of the trails we have made throughout the woods on the land. Better yet…I would love to have you come to one of our live workshops at our new studio here on our land.
If you love before and afters (come on…who doesn’t) come and check out the transformation of a large workshop/garage into my studio.
It was a year ago this month that we looked at that first home and all of the adventuring began.
Thank you for stopping over and joining me for my fall home tour!
Now, don’t stop here. You have to check out the rest of the tour…
