Hi there friends…have you come today for a home tour…well you will not be disappointed because we have 5 updates from 5 previous Cottages of the Week that you are soooooo going to enjoy. So grab a cup of something yummy…sit back… relax a bit this morning and enjoy some fabulous home decorating ideas…snatch up some great diy;s … get some new home decor ideas and be inspired because you can do it too!
First we will visit Karianne over at Thistlewood Farms. She has been super busy creating for sure. She just hasn’t been decorating in her home…nope…she just came back from a week of designing in North Carolina at Lazy Boy and her masterpiece is a must see! I am going to give you a sneak peek of the room she just designed and I am entitling it “It all started with a sofa” I will let you go find out all the details because you are going to want to! I have to admit that this is a room that I could move into right now!
Now Karianne has yet another home decorating project going on…just in case you haven’t heard…she is decorating the families Gate House and WOW are things looking amazing. If you haven’t seen Thistlewood in Hot PINK and Damask…you have to take a peek…it is awesome! First you are greeted with welcoming beauty
.Then you get to see the Craft Room and for all of you that love a style and organization…this is the place for you. Everything has a place and it’s place is perfect! Does this room POP or what. I could spend hours and hours crafting right here and be the happiest person on earth. So if you are looking for organizational tips with flair…you must visit this great Craft Room…it is fabulous!
Then there is the Kitchen! This is a must see for sure. Karianne shares her secret for cabinet updates for under 10 dollars…can you believe anything that looks this amazing could cost under 10 dollars? She shares her diy and I do believe that you are going to be filled with inspiration and many many more ideas will pop into your mind that you can implement in your own home.
So…drop by and visit Karianne and get all the details on her adventures…creations…home decor inspirations and maybe…just maybe she might whip up a batch of these incredible Pumpkin Rolls that just might wind up on your Thanksgiving Day Table ! Thank you as always Karianne for your gracious Southern Hospitality!
We are now going to head over to my pal Gina’s place…The Shabby Creek Cottage! When we visited her last she was working on her Master Bedroom and it is now complete and looks in three words…FAB U LOUS! The lines are clean…and the uncluttered style is fresh and fun. The cool thing is…she shares MANY of the diy’s that make up this happy space…so make sure to get the dl on all of this home decor goodness.
I love this cozy little reading corner in the room. Gina’s personality pops right off the page. She urges everyone to tap their own style…their own personality and be true to themselves and their families style. I really believe that is great advice and it is a rule of thumb that she follows in her decorating each and every day! Be inspired and then make that space your own!
There is so much more to see over in the complete Master Bedroom Makeover. You can get the diy’s on the projects…names of the paint shades and so much more!
Before you head over to The Shabby Creek Cottage…check out the innovative vintage house number wall art!
and then sit a spell on the families new porch! Tons to see…tons to learn and tons of inspiration! Thanks Gina for always welcoming us with open arms! See you soon.
