This weekend we took a break from the mundane tasks left around the house and headed out to take a look at the model homes for Homearama. I wanted to share some of my favorites with you. Please forgive any shoddy camera work. It was uber packed and I was happy to get a photo that wasn't blurry or full of people. So settings and perfect lighting didn't happen in the slightest. I'll be back Thursday with more too but for now, here's some spaces for you to enjoy!
The first home was very rustic and reminded of us a fancy lodge you'd pay big bucks to stay in for a weekend in Aspen or something. It wasn't my favorite style but it had such great detail. The wooden floors had little squares embedded within and the double sided fireplace was gorgeous. And those coffered ceilings! Each house had impeccable trim work.
The next house had some cute features too like the reading bench built into the landing of two staircases, separating them. Our animals would never leave that spot. I was blown away with the amount of windows and natural light in each home. I thought the kid's room with the wall of cork was great too. Perfect for the moody teenager and their constantly rotating collection of Hanson posters. Err... what is it these days? Bieber? Sorry... he's banned. Better settle for One Direction while they're still together.
This house was probably one of my favorites. I loved the mix of antiques. These knobs are amazing and reminded me of horns or something worldly. The rugs killed me in every room. And that credenza ... oh how I wanted it! The living room chairs were leather and I wish I had gotten a better detail shot. The texture was like a tortoise shell or something and it was gorgeous.
And check out that armoire in the bathroom. I love that mixed with the claw foot tub. The sliding door done with an antique door was so unique.
I loved this outdoor set. The cane chair, zinc top and live edge bench was a killer combo too. And I think that the settee is a crib that was altered. Did ya notice the sink in the laundry room? Did ya?! It's one of those enamel stock pots turned into the basin part of the sink.
Can't wait to share the rest with you on Thursday. Have a great week!
