Home Tour

Welcome to Blueberry Hill!

Framedoor

New around here?  Well then, let’s start with a little background: Pregnant with baby number 3, the Mr. (I was pregnant, not he) and I decided to move closer to his work which just happened to be in my home town.  Coincidentally, Mom and Dad were teetering on the idea of selling the house I grew up in.  A match made in Real Estate Heaven? Yes, I think so.  Buckle your seatbelts everyone, we’re going Back to Blueberry Hill 🙂

OK, let’s head on inside the main entryway, which we affectionately refer to as “the breezer.” Here’s a glimpse back to how it looked with our summer beachwear and towels:

Breezer1 Shhhh, there’s one more corner that I haven’t shown yet that I’m just giddy about blogging later this week (Check back on Thursday!)

Now, if you walked directly through this “breezer” we would find ourselves out on our back deck:

OK, heading inside…

This is a sign I made for the Kids’ playroom.  And for now, that’s all I’ll be blogging about in here.  Stay tuned really soon for some updated pictures (including a fun stable for horses Santa made for the littles).

We live in a tri level home, so there are two options to go from in here… first we’ll hit up the laundry room.  Yes, this is where a LOT of my time is spent.  🙂

Now, if you pass through here, you’ll find our powder room:

Next, if you turn back around and go straight through the laundry room, you’ll enter the “cave” AKA the guest bedroom.

Still under construction – you’ll be seeing more in here soon too.

Next up: the kitchen. (Normally you’d have to go back through to the playroom, then up a few stairs… lucky for you I’ll just bring you right there ;-))

If you turned your head you’d see this handsome devil to your right:

It’s been the most fun updating this area since well, we practically LIVE in the kitchen.

I couldn’t wait to get some open shelving in here.  I love how open and bright it has made it.  That, and I just LOVE farmhouse style.

Dizzy yet? I am.  Hope you enjoyed the tour thus far and stay tuned for Part 2 tomorrow! Thanks so much for dropping by 🙂

Welcome to part 2 of our Home Tour!  Yesterday we left off in the kitchen:

Now if we turn right around, we’ll have a view of our dining area:

And if we turn to the right we’ll head out onto the screened porch:

It’s the perfect escape from the mosquitoes in the summertime.  We even made a faux fireplace to give it a cozy feeling:

OK heading back indoors to the family/TV room

Thanks so much for taking my first Back to Blueberry Hill Home Tour!

Per usual around here, things change around quite a bit so stay tuned for more… I’ll also be sharing a fun little addition to our entryway tomorrow that has all of us smiling here on Blueberry Hill ;-). See you then!

    1. Hi Mary!

      Thank you so much… I’m touched that you think so. It’s exactly what I go for when I decorate over here… using meaningful pieces that on their own tell a story, but also make it cozy and welcoming too. Thank you for stopping by and for your thoughtful comment. Its truly made my day.

      Kate
