blogger stylin' home tours // spring house tour



Welcome, especially to everyone continuing their tour from Cuckoo 4 Design!

Well, I am so excited for this day. One of the glaringly obvious (to me, at least) holes in this blog is it's lack of a proper "House Tour" graphic in the right side bar. Maybe it's just me, but I love it when a blog that I visit for the first time has a tour of the blogger's house...maybe it's voyeurism at it's finest, or maybe you just feel like you get to know a person more when you see their space, but in any case, I always click that tab. For me though, I've never felt like anything was "finished" enough (or let's be honest, clean enough) to get blog-worthy pictures of it. (Which is also funny because I like the house tours that aren't done even better than the ones that are!) In any case, today I have the excuse to finally get a few more pictures of my home up on the blog.

A few weeks ago, a really sweet girl named Lindsay of the blog White Buffalo Styling Co. reached out to me and asked if I'd like to participate in the spring round of her "Blogger Stylin' House Tours." Um, are you serious?! Yes! I'd seen friends, like my girl Summer, doing this tour before and have always enjoyed it- like, the people on it do ridiculously swoon-inducing stuff. So I was thrilled she asked me to participate! Every day for one week, a select few bloggers share how they've been sprucing up their homes for Spring. And since it's Wednesday, it's my turn. To catch up on the tour, you can start at Lindsay's and she'll give you directions, or check out the links at the end of this post.

Hope you enjoy some peeks into my home! It worked out for me to take these pictures when the house was all decorated for Easter, so that will explain the overabundance of eggs and bunnies on the table. :)

Spring has been all about cleaning out and organizing, and then of course, adding a little pink. In the last picture you can see a peek into our playroom, which I've finally been getting a system of organization in place for! I'll have some pictures to share of it soon. {Update: Tour the playroom here!}

And tomorrow you can come back for an update on my bedroom for the One Room Challenge- if you've been following along on Twitter or Instagram, then you know that this week the word "challenge" was quite appropriate. Grr. {Update: See the bedroom progress here.}

Thank you so much for stopping by, and thanks so much to Lindsay for hosting the tour. 

You can continue to the next stop on the tour by heading to SG Style- please give her some love from Avery Street Design! 

And you can see the rest of the week's participants below- the talent is simply amazing. For real, heart eyes emoji all around.

    1. Thank you so much Cassie! The office was our big project from last year and it was worth all of the blood, sweat and tears. It's been a great space, not only for creative endeavors, but to keep organized. We finally have a system for paperwork! Now if only I could get a system for back packs and coats and snow pants and boots and umbrellas and.... sigh, the stuff never ends. :) :)
