Lou's Pretty Big Girl Room

Posted by Honor on Sunday, March 2, 2014, In : Home Sneek Peek 

   It's tour town around these parts! Don't know why, but I've been on a major cleaning, styling and staging kick lately and I thought I would share the fruits of my labor. Honestly I thought a third child would be the end of my housekeeping days, but actually, to mine and my husband's amusement/joy/pleasure, my cleaning/organizing/domestic engineering setting has been set on overdrive. I'm pinning cleaning tips, ripping out organization articles and basically throwing myself wholeheartedly a...

Eclectic Boys Playroom Tour

Posted by Honor on Thursday, February 27, 2014, In : Home Sneek Peek 

  Thought it was about time that I shared a tour of our playroom or 'the boys room'. Of course I share it right when it's about to change. Now that ol Leland has made his appearance this room is soon to become a shared bedroom. So lots of decorating daydreams are sure to follow ;).
   This room started off as an office/guest room but then I felt so guilty about having such a large room all to my self and the 'once a year' out of town guests. So Lucinda's room it became. Then once Lucas came al...

Snapshots, Insta and Just General 'It's Difficult For Me To Do Anything Right Now'

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, January 22, 2014, In : Home Sneek Peek 



   Here are some snaps of what's been goin on around the house, from my phone, insta and a Dora camera. Nothing really special, just some furniture rearranging and going nuts with houseplants. It is super DUper hard for me to be motivated to do ANYthing right now other than pace back and forth trying to get this boy up off his bootay and out of my belly. Moving a chair here and there is my therapy and here are the results of said therapy....






  Testing out a new arrangement in the living roo...

Holiday Home Tour 2013

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, December 4, 2013, In : Home Sneek Peek 


   Welcome to the Kristie Holiday Home Tour version 2013!.... or what I like to call Glittery Gold wonderland. You'd be pretty hard pressed to find a single silver ornament in the mix. Nope. This gal is strictly white lights, glittery gold & wood tones. Just feels like the 'holidays' to me with that simple gold color scheme. And glitter.... lots and lots of glitter. Call me traditional, call me an old fogey, but I like to stick to the classics.
   Here is what I have so far. Just waiting on s...

Country Kitchen: Dark Stained Butcher Block Countertop

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, November 12, 2013, In : Home Sneek Peek 
  
  Oh my jeeze... I guess I shoulda done this a whole lot earlier, but I thought I'd update you on our kitchen remodel process... it's only been 6 months since my last kitchen post! The latest on the remodel was to refinish/re-stain our butcher block countertops. You can see how they were lookin before here. Kinda icky poo and definitely in need of some TLC. Annnnnnnd I was in need of a little change up. While I am still utterly infatuated with rustic, worn in, lumps and bumps country kitch...

For all you single mamas out there, how you do this A...

Great Room Tour Sneak Peak

Posted by Honor on Thursday, February 14, 2013, In : Home Sneek Peek 

Wanted to share a couple of snapshots our kitchen/great room that will be featured in a home tour series soon (details will be posted when the article goes live). I was so honored to be asked and spent quite a bit of time trying to get these images just right. The mister and I are so proud of this character filled home we have created together and adore sharing the coziness with who ever wants to par take.







 

This was just a taste to wet your appetite. Thanks for stopping by and check back in s...

Evolution of a DIY Painted Staircase

Posted by Honor on Monday, February 11, 2013, In : Home Sneek Peek 

Run! Hide! Shelter your children! It's the great WHITE OUT here in So Cal!
Wait
No, it's not snow.
It's white paint!
Whewww... dodged one there.

Yes, it is true I have turned to the dark side. Or light side. White side? After many years of dogging people who chose white paint over the bajillion other shades available, I have become one of them. I just finished repainting my kitchen with white paint. And the staircase. And the family room. I am shellacking the whole place!

With the new year I was ...

Wood, Nail & String Art Plus Office Peek

Posted by Honor on Friday, January 11, 2013, In : Home Sneek Peek 


As I mentioned before, we swapped rooms. Me and my little girl that is. I took over her bedroom for my office and she and her little brother are in the other spare room. It is twice the size and just perfect for two little hooligans to do cartwheels in. As for my 'new' office I decided to leave the paint color and just work with what I have around the house to decorate and style. Boy do I have a lot of stuff. It sure is pretty though. Purging tchotskies is not a strong suit of mine. I am a cl...

New Year New Room

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, January 2, 2013, In : Home Sneek Peek 


New paint color really. Truth is that I was never really sold on the color our master had been. I was going for a sophisticated gray with a hint of lavender. In my mind it was going to be classy, moody, unique.
Unique is right.... it came out straight up PURPLE. A weird mauve in your face purplish tone. In the early morning light I was ok with it, but every other time I was just annoyed when I caught a glimpse of it. Heck... I even painted a mural over it to try and change my heart about it. N...

Before and After: DIY Family Photo Gallery Wall

Posted by Honor on Monday, November 19, 2012, In : Home Sneek Peek 
 Hello ladies! And welcome the the second installment of my before and after series. Last week I shared with you my before and after for our family photo wall in our entry/stair way. This DIY is for a wall in our family room. Because I swapped out our mushy section for a super fab vintage davenport I had a blank wall to decorate at will. Yipeee! Having something new to decorate is a little bit exciting don't you think? I like to periodically look at our living spaces and evaluate how it is fu...

Before and After: Staircase Family Photo Wall

Posted by Honor on Thursday, November 15, 2012, In : Home Sneek Peek 



This wall has been the bane of my existence. I get heartburn just looking at it. Bahhhhh, it frustrates me to no end!

Ok a little exaggerated , but you get my point. I have had such trouble figuring out what to do with this wall. In the short year and a half we have been here it has had quite a few 'lives'. First it was a dining area. Then a reading nook. Then back to a dining area with faux built in benches. Then  to a holding area for a table I didn't know what to do with. Then finally to th...

Home Sneek Peek: Master Bedroom 'Anthro Inspired'

Posted by Honor on Monday, April 9, 2012, In : Home Sneek Peek 

 

Welcome to our master bedroom! Just a little sneek peek into our little anthropologie inspired love nest. While our room is not huge... it makes up for it in charm. For this little tour I focused on the feature wall of the room. I created this custom wallpaper out of a vintage themed scrapbook paper book. I fell in love with the patterns, maps & images of stamps as soon as I saw them... but alas I am not an avid scrapbooker so how could I justify purchasing such a large amount of scrapbook p...
