A Colorful and Eclectic Home

Thanks to a couple of extensive room challenges this year I’m super happy with the progress in our house so far.

You may recognize some of the spaces if you are a regular but I am debuting a couple of new rooms too so come on in!

All of our main living areas were completely transformed during the Spring One Room Challenge which just finished a few short weeks ago. I may or may not be still recovering from. 😉


I brought a lot of color into the open concept with a green accent wall, lots of DIYS, and a few new pieces.

The german schmear/smear fireplace is one of my favorite DIYs I’ve ever done. This side of the room was so dark and gloomy when we moved in but it is really growing on me!

You can read about the entire process and all of the DIYs in the our open concept living dining rooms makeover reveal.


Next on the tour is our daughter’s room. It was the first room I completely made over after we moved in which I completed during the New Year New Room Refresh challenge.

The room has such summery hues of pinks and greens I just had to include it on the tour!

I knew I wanted an eclectic interior design for the entire house and really pulled together the vibe I was going after. It set the stage for the other makeovers!

I can not get enough of the whimsical wallpaper and colorful accessories.

Every day I wonder why I haven’t kicked her out and moved in myself. It’s so freakin’ cute!

Next to our daughter’s room is our master bath and bedroom. They are a work in progress but I have done some updates with them.

Most recently I changed up the bedding textiles for summer and got around to styling our night stands.

I have big plans for the room and hopefully can get around to it this summer (before I moved into my daughter’s room). Ha!

It’s a smaller room so I thought I would try to get a shot of the entire space in the mirror reflection but failed to see how dirty it was. 🙂 The seashells are a nice summer touch though, right?

The tiny on suite bathroom was a quick and fun refresh with bold paint and one of my aunt’s paintings.

The floral art was perfect for spring but works so well for summer too especially with some palm prints close by. You can read how I did the entire room for under $100 in our bathroom makeover.

My son’s room is too stinky and messy to even attempt pictures right now so we’ll skip it.

That just leaves us with our back patio! My daughter and I enjoyed adding finishing touches this weekend after tornado warnings kept us indoors last week.

If you’ve been following instagram stories you know what a treat is is to have such a beautifully landscaped garden the previous owners created. I fell in love with the yard before I the house!

We brought a few Japanese pots, a buddha statue, and umbrella rain chain back from Japan with us that bring fond memories of our last home.

I found a table at an estate sale for $15 and only had to clean it up and spray paint the base gold. Hello MCM style! Isn’t it darling?

  1. You’ve created such a beautiful home. I love how you carried the same soothing tones of green throughout. So pretty!

  2. your home has so much personality, kathy! i love it! i especially love your girl’s room and i think you SHOULD kick her out and take over. 😉 also, i have the same room essentials dishes in my tour- they were such a steal!!!

  3. Girl, I LOVE your style!!! Your living room and piano nook give me all the heart eyes. And I can’t even handle all the brassy goodness—that brass bed frame and wallpaper combo!! ✨

  4. Mannnnn Kathy…It’s hard to pick a favorite room, but I still love that little girls room so much. You have done so much to your new home already. Looks amazing

  5. I’ve been thinking of getting a fan or two for my back porch. The ceiling is too low for a ceiling fan. I love those two fans you have tucked into the corners. What brand of fan are they and would you recommend them?

  6. It’s really such a beautiful house. you have shared very beautiful ideas with us. Keep it Up Kathy!
