Home Tour 2013

I share my furniture makeovers and I forget about things around the house.  We’ve made a couple big changes and the decor is always like a revolving door.

So here’s the 2013 Home Tour or the rooms that were clean today.


Our house is very open, it has lots of windows and very little wall space.  Or maybe I just have too much stuff that needs a wall.

It’s a mix of painted, thrifted and new stuff.  Always a work in progress or turmoil.

I always have beachy decor, but I add even more in the summer.

I like decorating with found objects, like these old corbels and fresh flowers.

I have two awesome Endless Summer Hydrangeas.  They amaze and serve me all summer.

Some things around the house are always changing, but my gallery wall has stayed the same.

My son calls this sofa a sleigh, it’s deep and cozy.

It wraps around you and makes you want to lounge.

Comfy and down-filled.

The walls in several rooms, including this one are Benjamin Moore Hazy Skies.

It looks different in each room and the color changes throughout the day, I haven’t gotten tired of it….yet 🙂

We love casual and cozy.

Master Bedroom

Home Tour Bedroom

One of the big changes in the house this year.

Carpet gone!  We love having wood floors in the bedroom.

I never, ever felt like the carpet was clean.

The bedroom doesn’t have a lot of knick-knacks, it’s clutter free



…I need to do that in all the rooms.

Kitchen Table

Eat In Area of the Kitchen

More beachy decor for the eat-in kitchen area.

Eat In Area of the Kitchen

One of my favorite places to sit, the homemade bench.

Oyster colored burlap curtains, lined with white flat sheets.

Pottery Barn rug, found at a thrift store.

Orange napkins from an estate sale.

The table scape is about the only thing that changes in this room.

I do have plans for painting something in here.

If I ever decide on a color.  

Dining Room

Do you remember when I bought the lamp filled with sea shells (click on the Pottery Barn rug link above).

I use them all the time!

I just added some burlap to the table, and filled it with ocean inspired things from around the house.

White candles, hydrangeas and a mix of plates.

I’ll get busy on the rest of the house and show you soon.

    🙂 Linda

  10. Debbie..your home is so beautiful!…I am so loving that “homemade bench”….and that gorgeous blue “sofa/sleigh”…;)
    So enjoyed the tour!!

  11. Everything looks beautiful Debbie!! I love all the silver trays hanging in your dining room.

  12. Thanks so much for a wonderful home tour. I, too, love coastal touches and enjoyed your hospitality very much.

  13. What a lovely home, Debbie!! Great showcase for your beastly decorating and painting talents! Enjoy the day, friend ~ xo Heidi

  14. I loved taking your gorgeous home tour, Debbie! Your mantel is fabulous … your bedroom retreat is amazing with its new floors (love the cowhides) … and, your kitchen is so inviting (I want your chevron pillows)! And, of *course* I love all of your coastal accents! I just wish you lived closer so I could take the tour again in person!

  15. It’s all beautiful, so can you clean the rest of the rooms because I want to see more.


  16. So much beauty and serenity with the occasional fun to make things interesting.
    You’re an inspiration. Thank you for inspiring!

  17. Beautiful home! love all the light! I wish we had wood floors —i hate hate carpet! One problem I keep thinking about is how to incorporate colored furniture and different styles of furntiture together. I keep wanted to paint stuff but then I’m like well all these colors together aren’t going to look good.

  18. Debbie, it is gorgeous, and refreshing…just like you!

  19. GORGEOUS home, Debbie! I love the beachy decor and openness. It made me chuckle when you said you didn’t have a lot of walls, or else you had too many things that need wall – I feel the same way sometimes! 🙂 I also love the wood floors in the bedroom. I have wanted to get rid of all the carpeting and get wood floors for several years but it’s not in the budget, so seeing yours helps me keep the dream alive! 🙂 Such a pretty space but also warm and inviting. Thanks for the tour! Sharon

  20. Such a luvly home Debbie. So calm… luv the wall colour. All your beachy decor is very pretty.
    Hugs, Gee

  21. Your home is lovely. Very comfortable and inviting – you’ve got the touch! Thanks for sharing.

  23. Gorgeous home Debbie..>rooms I have never seen so tastefully decorated!

  24. Beautiful home, Debbie. Thanks for sharing.
