Hello Everyone! What an honor it is to be asked by Debbie to be have my home featured. My name is Barb, and I am the host and very under-paid writer/blogger at The Everyday Home. As a born and bred Southerner, I love company.
So come on in… say hi to the cats…and I’ll go fix us some sweet tea. Do you like yours with lemon?
I hope you enjoy the tour. xxoo, Barb
Welcome to The Everyday Home Tour.
How would I describe the style of our home?That’s a very good question. Maybe even one I am not sure if I can answer.
What happens if you mix a touch of
Traditional with some Urban Farmhouse influence, bundled with touches of English-style,
then throw in some Euro antiques and a twist of French?
It’s The Everyday Home!
I’d like to invite you to come in and be our guest for a while…
No Southern home is complete without a Front Porch,
and although ours is small…I like to think I have packed with a lot of attitude – or “Sass-itude!”
(that’s Southern Sassy Attitude) 🙂
Here is our porch decorated for Summer…
Of course there are white rockers and a
Southern Red Door. 🙂
Our porch went thru quite the transformation
from when we purchased this home.
If you would like to real all about our
Porch Transformation Project and see the
Before and After Porch Project,
Here is our porch once again, decorated for Fall.
The white porches were switched with brown wrought-iron chairs and ottomans. I love to change our porch for the Seasons.
To see this Fall transformation, go HERE.
Just inside the Foyer, you enter our Formal Dining Room.
They are filled with a small portion of my collection of Pink and White Staffordshire China.
Wanna see the whole room, including my wall of
English Staffordshire Plates?
The next room has seen several changes over the
last ten years since we moved into this home.
The Formal Living Room.
Here it is several years ago in its “Red Stage,”
all dressed up for Christmas –
– and here it is in “Blue Stage 1.”
Blue Stage 1 you ask?
Yes, it has since been repainted to
Summer Cottage Blue.
(What I call “Blue Stage 2) 🙂
Here is the English Hutch all dressed for Christmas…
You can see more of my
Christmas 2012 Home Tour HERE.
Here is my Formal Living Room in all of its
Fabulous Fall Finery. You can see how the room has transformed from Blue Stage 1.
These are some of the pillows which grace my Living Rom sofa, which I carry in my online
shop Farmhouse Decor.
And here is the room as if looks when not decorated for the holidays…
Next, we enter the heart of the home – and one of my favorite spots to spend time – the
Kitchen and Breakfast Room.
The kitchen recently went through a whole new transformation, as well, and you won’t believe the Before and After.
Here is the Breakfast Room…
Some of the details of the room…
...and some details from the Kitchen…
My Painted Faux Brick Backsplash
Our Copper Farmhouse Sink…
We added on a 30×30 Family Room
several years ago.
It’s where we spend most of our time.
It’s also where we love to host a lot of parties for
Family and Friends, and generally everyone gathers around our English Pub Bar.
Here is the bar decorated in all of its
– and here is the TV/Sitting Area…
This room allows us to feature our love of
English and Euro style.
Our Family Room Christmas Mantel
When it is not bedecked with yards and yards of lights and garlands…
– this is how The Family Room looks on
a regular basis.
We recently did a small make-over of the
We spent less than $150, and got a
whole new look.
Here is the Before…
Just a few changes in color and accessories,
and this is the After.
You can see the Guest Bath
Before and After Project HERE.
Check out how I even transformed the lamp you see above HERE.
And speaking of budget makeovers, check out our
$75 Guest Room Makeover…
See that quick-change story HERE.
Our most recent DIY Project has been a total renovation of our Laundry Room and Pantry.
I have yet to to do the final reveal, but I promise it is coming soon.
Here are a few pics of what we accomplished…
My new organized pantry.
Here is the awesome storage shelf we installed up high, and a look at some of the new beadboard on the walls and ceiling, too. (painted a soft blue)
