Nest Tour: A Boise Modern Farmhouse

It’s been a while since I have shared a home that really speaks to me.  As I was recently perusing Realtor.com, I found a beautiful, out-of-my-budget and way-too-large-for-me home that I fell in love with!  But a girl can dream, right?  This gorgeous home was a 2016 Parade of Homes by Paradigm Construction and it has every single feature of a new build while also claiming the charm of a classic farmhouse.  My favorite part is the interior.  The staging inside is done to perfection!  I love the neutral palette and abundance of textures.  Enjoy!

Antler & Yarn Wall Hanging

Antler art, antler wall hanging, wall hanging, yarn wall hanging, DIY, modern wall hangingLast week, we had some very special company Thursday and Friday night.  I have been wanting to spruce up the guest bedroom but just haven’t had the time/energy/funds, so while we had a snow day last week I shopped around the house for some craft supplies to make a wall hanging!  Pinterest has loads of inspiration for wall hangings and honestly I was shocked at how quick and easy this project was!  It may not be one of the fancy woven yarn wall hangings that I have been drooling over but I love the outcome and it was so simple and quick.  The project took about 10 minutes to get all my supplies ready, 10 minutes to actually loop the thread, and another 10 for Chase to drill a hole and hang the antler.  The best 30 minutes ever!  Lucy had fun “helping” me by going through my yarn box and grabbing for the scissors every 10 seconds (it probably would have only taken me 5 minutes to loop the yarn if I didn’t have to swat an infant’s hand away so often!)  

All I did for this fun and modern wall art was cut yarn pieces double the length I wanted them to hang (so I could loop them) and then I brought the loop over and under to tie them in place.  I added a braided piece of yarn and a tassel to give more depth and interest.  To finish, I trimmed all the ends to match and had the hubby drill a hole in the back of the antler to secure a nail in so we could hang it!  How simple?! Antler art, antler wall hanging, wall hanging, yarn wall hanging, DIY, modern wall hangingAntler art, antler wall hanging, wall hanging, yarn wall hanging, DIY, modern wall hanging

Midcentury Modern Entryway Styling

A couple of years ago, I was struggling with the furniture we had- none of it was very high quality or working for the look I wanted our home to have.  The reason for this was because when we first moved in, not only did I not know my personal style yet, but I thought we had to fill our house with furniture as soon as possible for it to feel like a home.  We went to the nearest big box store, bought a set, and called it good.  If you are in the beginning stages of decorating a home, please, please do not make the same mistake I did!  Take your time with your purchases- like years, if that’s what it takes!  Pick things that speak to you and your style.  And most of all, make sure you love every little thing you buy and bring into your home!  Hopefully, this mindset will mean you won’t grow tired of your things after a short while like I did.  So, I decided to list most of it on Craigslist and start fresh.  I also don’t really suggest doing that.  It meant our entryway has been void of furniture and decor since!

The other day, I was in a thrift store and found an amazing gem that would be the heart of the space.  It is a midcentury styled desk that needed some love, so of course I added that to the honey do list and made Chase go with me to pick the desk up!  We are in the process of painting it with chalk paint and then topping with a high gloss lacquer.  I am SO excited to get the space pulled together!  Here are a few pictures to show my inspiration, as well as some items I’m thinking would be perfect for a midcentury styled entryway.
