Okay friends, I promised an updated home tour last month so instead of a monthly recap, I’m sharing our Okinawa Home Tour a couple of days late. Last month was all about Halloween and we are over that anyways, right?
Welcome to our Okinawa rental!
We have a fantastic foyer that has built in bookcases and shoe cabinets. It’s awesome.
This is the spot in the house where I showcase a lot of different colors. The color coded books set the tone. You can read more on how I styled the bookcases HERE.
The floral paper lantern was a summer DIY (which you can find HERE) but I’ve kept it out most of the year because of how cheery it is!
One of the easiest and cheapest wall treatments I’ve ever done, is this fan wall. You can find two different ways to create it HERE.
As you come around the corner, the house opens up into my office nook, our living room, and kitchen/dining room.
You can read about my office makeover HERE. I tell you what, I’m becoming the queen of small space decorating ideas! 😉
The living room also serves as my piano studio. I can’t live without my babygrand and it has traveled all over the world with us.
Our house if full of windows and with white floors and walls, it’s bright most of the day. Great for taking pictures and working on DIYs! Not so great for pet hair and kid messes.
Our kitchen went through a pretty major makeover (rental friendly!) with contact paper covered cabinets and new hardware. Even the built in china cabinet received some love with washi and construction paper.
You can find kitchen DIYs HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
The house also has two full bathrooms and a laundry rooms. The two baths are pretty much the same. A separate sink area and a deep Japanese bathtub.
We have three bedrooms. My daughter’s room was one of the first to be done. We had to use government issued furniture but we don’t even mind it now.
You can read more about my daughter’s room HERE. Our son’s room is still a work in progress but it’s getting there….
The last room I want to share is our master bedroom. It has a walk out balcony over looking the Pacific ocean and a large walk in closet. It’s heaven.
Whew! That was a lot of pictures and I still have the downstairs bath/laundry and our son’s room to finish and share.
I hope you enjoyed our Okinawan home tour. We really enjoy it here and thank God everyday for this wonderful opportunity to live on such a beautiful island.
