Nest Tour: A Texan Treehouse

This is the coolest house, by far.  And by house, I actually mean “tree house” which is why the cool factor is so high.  I found the tour on Apartment Therapy and had to share- the home is owned by Don and Judy, who state their style as “modern and vintage”, which it is just that.  And you know how I’m a sucker for a cute dog in a home tour- they have a sweet yellow lab who reminds me of ol’ Buddy, my childhood pup!  They also shared some wonderful advice:

“Take your time with furnishings and finishing your home. By taking our time, we’ve been able to find things that are unique or sentimental.  We still have many bare walls and empty spaces because we want to love what we fill and not just like it. The other advice I would give is that less is more. By keeping things simple in our house, we have more room for play and for creativity.” -Don and Judy via Apartment Therapy

Nest Tour: Funky and Fun Thrift Store Finds

I found Andrea Duclos’ home tour on Glitter Guide and just had to share. Partly because her couch is from Anthropologie, but also because her home is the perfect cultivation of thrift store finds.   I am seriously impressed with how Andrea combines so many prints in a small area and they all seem to work together!  The layered rugs, the ottomans, the couch… all different colors and patterns but it all looks cohesive.  I wish I could do that!

Nest Tour: A Chic and Colorful Tennessee Home

I found this tour of Kathy and Matt’s home on Apartment Therapy.  Kathy is a blogger at My Interior Life and has her own design business, so of course this home is styled to a T!  Honestly, I’m not quite sure if it was the glamour, the color, or the golden retrievers that drew me to the design- or maybe it was a combination of all three.  Because any home with a golden is my type of home!  But in all seriousness, Kathy’s use of color on the walls is real cool.  The main level is quite neutral as well as the master suite, but the other bedrooms and bathrooms all have a pop of paint.  The office and bathroom share a black wall color, which is so rich and glamourous.  Her daughter’s room is a robin egg blue and son’s room is a fresh kelly green- so fun!
