I’m excited to be sharing some before and afters of our new home today with our beautiful new Shaw Epic Plus floors! Even our Zoe thinks they are fabulous!
Happy weekend! We’re so thrilled to have Shannon here with us today giving us a tour of her gorgeous modern farmhouse home. Grab a coffee, sit back and enjoy!
Hello At the Picket Fence readers! My name is Shannon and I’m an interior designer, author and one half of the creative duo behind the DIY and design blog, AKA Design. I’m honored that Vanessa and Heather invited me to share my home with you today. Hello and welcome!
This is actually my family’s fourth house in the last ten years. I know, all that upheaval and moving sounds dreadful, and truthfully it’s not my favorite thing to do. But because we live in one of the most expensive real estate areas in the country, we’ve had to slowly work our way up to this house. It’s been an adventure fixing up houses, that’s for sure! (You can see our other three houses here.)
Well, friends, this is the final installment of the home makeover series we’ve been sharing for the past few days. Or, more accurately, this is the final installment…for now!
Happy Saturday friends! On behalf of my friend Kara (who is the one who gets to live in the gorgeous new spaces I’ve been showing you!) and myself we’d like to say a big huge THANK YOU for all of your lovely comments the past two days!
This was such a long process for Kara and her husband Caleb but he got to go to work each day while she, on the other hand, was living in the midst of chaos while their home was being remodeled. Oh and they have 5 kids. She deserves a trophy don’t you think? 😉
Oh friends do we ever have a treat in store for you today!! Are you on Instagram yet? If not, we HIGHLY recommend it! You see, Facebook is so wonky these days. Are we right? Sometimes you see things, sometimes you don’t. But on Instagram you get to see everything! And that is where we met our new friend Wendy from the blog Life on the Shady Grove. And not only did we fall in love with her absolutely beautiful home but we have been so blessed by her incredibly warm and welcoming spirit.
So, without further ado, let us introduce you to Wendy and try not to drool too much as you take the tour of her gorgeous farmhouse inspired home.
So are you wondering what Midcentury Modern Eclectic actually is? It’s what I call my signature style!
The dictionary defines a Signature Style as, “a distinguishing style.”
Midcentury Style is defined as, “a design period of roughly two and a half decades in the middle of the 20th century, from the mid-1940s to 1970. Its uncomplicated, fresh aesthetic arose from a desire to propel postwar America into the modern era and recast design through a bold new lens.”
Modern Style is defined as, “Modern design is a style of decor that focuses on minimalism, neutral colors, clean design lines and environmentally-friendly materials.”
… and Eclectic is my permission to mix it all up!
I was so excited when my friend Carrie from, Making Lemonade invited me to be a part of her Signature Style Series!
WELCOME to Georgia y’all!! Where the weather’s HOT and the tea is SWEET! I’m so honored to be following my friend Rhoda, of Southern Hospitality on the 2014 Blogger Summer Home Tour; hosted by my fabulous and talented friend Gina, of Shabby Creek Cottage! Be sure to pay her a visit to start at the beginning of this amazing tour of blogger homes!
Flip, flop. Flip, flop. Flip, flop.
Don’t you love it when a word so perfectly describes the sound it makes?
And nothing says summer quite like the sound of flip flops.
In fact, I was tempted to just scatter flip flops all around my house and say, “There. Consider my summer decorating DONE!”
But, don’t believe for a second that I’m not wearing flip-flops while you’re reading this!
In fact, why don’t you go put on yours and we can just flip-flop our way through this tour together! If you’re just coming over from Nesting Place I want to welcome you to At the Picket Fence and to my home here in the beautiful Willamette Valley, Oregon.
It’s one thing to be the prettiest home on the block…it’s another to be the prettiest and the smartest!
I was so excited when I was recently invited up to the fabulous city of Nashville, for a blogger sneak peek tour the newest HGTV HOME and this one is a “smarty pants!”
A fully furnished English-cottage design, built by Carbine and Associates and located in Duncanwood Reserve in the desirable Green Hills area of Nashville, TN; this home features some of the most high-tech amenities and eco-friendly materials out there!
