SPRING HOME TOUR 2016 HOSTED BY COUNTRY LIVING MAGAZINE
 
Spring in my area is such a beautiful season… and such a short lived one too! So, I’m make the most of this blooming, bursting, chirping, egg-cracking, nesting, green, warm, breezy time of the year. Let’s open up the windows and let that gorgeous and welcomed fresh air in. It’s time to tuck a few pretty signs of the season in our homes and celebrate! I like to keep spring decor simple and sweet! Today I’m sharing part of my downstairs cleaned, spiffed up and ready for spring… C’mon in, I’ve been waiting for you!
 

SPRING HOME TOUR 2016 HOSTED BY COUNTRY LIVING MAGAZINE

Please get cozy I have lots of pictures today… lots and lots of pictures!

Today is FARMHOUSE FRIDAY! The farmhouse girls are so thrilled to be participating in a HOME TOUR hosted by COUNTRY LIVING MAGAZINE! What a thrill to be working with Country Living! 

Please stop by all the pretty Spring Tours at the end of this post.

SPRING HOME TOUR 2016 HOSTED BY COUNTRY LIVING MAGAZINE

Let’s start at the front of StoneGable! Welcome to the living room.

My living room is more classic than farmhouse in it’s design and style. StoneGable is a modern America farmhouse. I like to think of my style as refined country living! But it is country living non the less. And our farmhouse inspired home certainly influences the way I decorate! 

Light pours into the window and french door. I often find the living room hard to photograph. This is the lightest and brightest room in my home. 

You will find me in the living room reading or entertaining.

The living room will be going through some small changes between now and early summer. Make sure to stop back to see what we will be working on!

Here’s a view that you probably have not seen before. It gives you a little perspective of how StoneGable is laid out. I’m standing in front of and to the left of the Curlacue chest in the living room.

Let’s walk through the foyer to the dining room.

Our dining room was the first room we tackled in our on going total house makeover. We literally gut every room from floor to ceiling as we update them. We are now working on our main hall bathroom. Bobby actually did all the plumbing. But I digress…
 
Since we finished the dining room makeover about 4 years ago the dining room is still evolving! Are we ever really done decorating? This room has a formal rustic luxe feel that I’m so comfortable with. Over half the the elements in this room are diy projects.
 
This spring, the concrete table is embellished with hammered silver and glass hurricanes that are filled with softly colored eggs and twiggy branches filled with white cherry blossoms.
 
Flanking the hurricanes are mercury glass candlesticks. I am a huge fan of mercury glass!

Let’s head to the family room. The back half of StoneGable is a lot less formal and more relaxed than the front. But the same colors in the living room and dining room are carried through to the kitchen, breakfast room and family room.
 
Here’s where my love of farmhouse style can shine. I love slipcovers, galvanized metal, chippy paint, lots of white dishes and fun farmhouse accents!
 
The family room is the darkest room in my home. At some point we going to knock out the two windows in the family room and have double french doors installed or a great windows with transoms all around. Until then it’s cozy!
 
For the image below, I stood by one of the white slipcovered chairs. As you can see the back of my home, like the front, is very open.

Let’s head the the little area sandwiched between the family room and the kitchen. The “breakfast room” is really a small, open area. It may be small but it holds a lot of people for meals! The round table has two leaves.

    Keep you the good work…………you inspire us in so many great ways.
    Blessings, Nellie

  17. I don’t think we’ve seen the mud room, would like to see that hard working space too.
    Your home is so lovely, thanks for sharing it with us.

  18. I have looked all over the internet for a glass lamp with bronze bottom. Can you please tell me where you got the lamps in your family room? I love your house.

  19. I went out to Pier 1 and bought a blue and white urn (on sale) and four cherry blossom branches. The filled urn sits on a sofa table in front of a large mirror. My new sofa is in front of the sofa table. All inspired by you. You spring-timed my living room. Thank you and a Blessed Easter to you and your family.

  24. I so enjoyed the pictorial walk through of your home. We share a common love for decorating and hospitality,and your home speaks loudly of your talent in both of these areas.

    May you have a blessed Easter and Spring!

  25. Your home is just lovely!! Loved all your spring touches. The eggs and branches are really cute! Have a beautiful Easter…

  26. Yvonne, thank you for giving us a tour of your lovely home. I love all the Spring touches in your home and am looking forward to what you have in store for Summer decorating at StoneGable. Easter blessings to you and your family!

  27. Wow it’s like I’m seeing your home for the first time! I’ve been a follower for years. It is even more beautiful when seen altogether like this and I appreciate all the photos and work that you must have put into this post. Have a blessed Easter.

  28. Doris Swan Your home is absolutely magnificent.Everything flows together so nicely and I love that it’s all pretty neutral. I always enjoy your blog.

  29. Do you think the paint color Sonnet would be ok with dark walnut stained wood trim ? Also just a suggestion would be to install solatubes in your dark family room to bring in natural light unless there is a second story above it. Loved seeing your home from all the angles. Beautiful.

    1. Hi Nanci, thanks for the great suggestion! I think Sonnet would work well with dark stained walnut. Head to your Benjamin Moore store and get a sample sheet of Sonnet and see how it looks in your home.

  30. What a beautiful and not over-the-top flow (it is so serene!) from room to room. You are gifted by God and I appreciate that you share it with us. Blogs are not easy to do and I can only imagine the hours of work you put into this career. I love the way you infuse your faith into your decorating too.

    I too love the repurposing and diy philosophy. We can all get nutty and our “things” start to dominate but you continue to exhibit that taking time to declutter and rearrange can truly make our home a refuge. Thanks Yvonne!

    1. PS I know it is a passion and a calling but also appreciate the time it takes, thus the word “career”! 🙂

  31. Gorgeous Yvonne! I love your style and look forward to each day with you. Happy Easter to you and your family !

  32. Than you for having me in your lovely home! I had to sit,and sip my coffee,and I felt like I was in heaven,,Oh Yvonne,you continue to inspire me each day,,Some days I have to take notes,,and yes,,go back to the dining room,or even take a walk to the kitchen,,I love everything,but I notice a new happening everytime! I love the 3 tier on your kitchen table,now that is darling!! I want that,,I love the coffee sign in your kitchen, I’d love to have that,too,,I know how sharing you are,,HA! I noticed this time how you arrange your pillows,like stuffing them inside each other,now that is so inviting, now can you see why I have to sit!!

    I also appreciate all your hard work,it takes a lot of time to arrange things and make a home beautiful,and Yvonne you have done an amazing job!!

    Love,
    Tina

  33. I have so enjoyed watching you put together your lovely home over the last two or three years I have followed your blog. Your taste is unique and inspiring to us. Please know we appreciate the work you have gone to to create a clean and welcoming home, not for a coffee table book but for a real family to live in and enjoy. As I look around my kitchen and family room I see touches that you have inspired.

    I appreciate the simplicity and comfort you have woven into your decorating style. I like seeing favorite objects used over and over in a new arrangement. That is real life.

    This year I am pulling out my mercury glass which I have only used at Halloween and Christmas….this year it will be Spring, and I can’t wait to make the blue eggs to go with the nests you taught us to make. This is your genius, a fresh look with favorite things and a dash of something new!

  34. Thank you so much for the beautiful tour! I can only imagine the amount of work involved from taking the photographs to getting everything assembled on the computer!! You have so many admirers so may not remember me saying how very similar our tastes are. Well, I got a chuckle seeing that gorgeous (looks to be blue) chipped bowl holding blossoms on your living room coffee table because I just filled almost the same bowl (except a cream/beige color) with fresh ivy and put it on my kitchen table. That one new item really caught my attention because there’s nothing else on that table! I love that more “bare” look for a change and just had to comment on that, not because I have almost the same bowl but the fact that you removed everything else and as a result, the container and blossoms really shine! (Hope you know what I mean!). You usually have some interesting vignette there but this is a nice fresh change. I loved every single thing in your main level tour. Wishing you and your family good health and a lovely Easter weekend, Yvonne!

    PS: I can’t wait for the Upstairs Tour!! 🙂

  35. I just wanted to thank you for this valuable information. It gave me the confidence I needed to know that starting a blog was actually feasible and the information to actually go through with it

  36. Love your style. Can you please share what material your countertops are and the color. They are gorgeous.
    Thank you so much for all your inspiration.

  38. Thank you for sharing your home tour. Your home is so warm and inviting. Love the pops of black and old treasures!

  39. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with everyone. I love the light fixture in your kitchen over your island. Does it give off enough light and may I ask where you found it?
    Thanks. Have a great day.

  40. Your home is just gorgeous! Thank you for sharing your inspiration with us. I also really love your Sunday posts, they are so relevant, thought provoking and uplifting when I cant be in my home church.

  41. Yvonne, your home is complete and beautiful. I love the mirror in the living room in place of the wings, just made your living room more beautiful. The back of your home, the kitchen and gathering room is just breath taking, you have an eye for decorating and I love that everything is so in place and clean. Thank you so very very much for putting the time into sharing your home and making my day a little brighter. God Bless

  42. Your Home is such a feast for the eyes. This is the first time I’ve noticed the zebra rug. Is there a story with that? How or where did you acquire it? I would love to own one and am tempted by some of the DIYs.

  43. Awesome Yvonne! I love how all of the colors are monochromatic throughout! It really looks classy and it is my favorite decorating look! You have the best taste!

  44. YVONNE, YOU DID A WONDERFUL JOB OF UNIFYING ALL THE ROOMS–SO SERENE AND LOVELY. SUCH FUN TO SEE ALL THE ROOMS TOGETHER, TOO. WISHING YOU A LOVELY SPRING, AND SO GLAD THE HIGH WINDS WE HAD LAST NIGHT DIDN’T BLOW AWAY ALL OUR LOVELY BLOOMS.

  45. The wind is howling this morning and your reminder that Spring is on the way cheers my Sunday!

    Thank you!

  46. Most of my decor came from travels to “strange places with strange sounding names” , but in the end it seems to blend. You have inspired me to add a few new touched-mostly pillows and throws. Your recipes are awesome too-especially your chicken thigh recipes.
    I visit your site daily. Thanks for your site.

  47. I think you are very talented, and I have used several of your ideas and recipes, but for me I think you need a pop of color.
    To each his own!

  48. I love your kitchen table. I am remodeling my kitchen this spring and would like to purchase a table similiar. Can you please tell em where you purchased it?

  49. bonjour vous etes une source d’inspiration pour moi je rend grace a Dieu ,bientot ma maison ressemblera a la votre en plus petit
    j’ai vu que vous aviez 2 salon est ce bien le cas ?je vous ai ecrit sur votre mur faceboock mais je n’ai eut aucune reponse
    peut etre que c’est une erreur 🙂 soyez benis

  50. HI yvonne Love your home .Love the black and white it”s so bright and airy .just love coming by Thank”s for sharing .

  51. Beeee.u.teeee.full!!!!! I love.love.love all of the pictures. I’m especially intrigued by one in the living room. I’d love to see a shot of the wall across from the one with the large mirror on it. There are three wooden frames with something in the middle of them. I’d like to see a close up of what they are. Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration.

  52. I love your home tour! Everything is always neat and clean, classy and beautiful! I share your love for pillows, but cannot always find them with zippers to remove them from their form. I have a question: when people sit on your sofa, do the pillows get taken off?

    1. Hi Linda, When I know I’m having company I take off a couple pillows and throw them in a big basket I keep in each room just for that use. Some people like to sit with a pillow behind their back or under their arm. Or they might throw a pillow on the floor. It’s okay!

  53. Beautiful attention to detail, and exquisite taste! I have a question, you and I love throw pillows, however, they always seem to get in the way with company. Any suggestions on how to artfully ditch the pillows without throwing them on the floor?

  54. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home, Yvonne. I love your style…classic, homey and stylish! I recently updated my pillow covers with the same Black/White check (Ballards). I only do pillow covers as I don’t have room to store lots of pillows. You are so talented!

  55. Your house is so pretty, I just love it. I had to chuckle at Jo Anne’s post because I was going to ask the same question. Because of your inspiration I have let creativity back in my life. , For Spring on my table top I have two french script napkins the center, before the holiday’s I was able to purchase a silver ice bowl from Home Goods , I purchased some magnolia flowers , from Magnolia Farm on sale, yeah!!! I have the magnolia flowers in the bowl , Then on either side are two little blue and white creamers with small cotton stems in them You are such a Blessing to me. ThankYou
    Be Blessed

  56. Yvonne I just love your home I think it is so peaceful and so classic and so elegant. You have done an amazing job. I don’t know what you could do different for the summer butt it looks perfect just as it is. Just love love love it

  57. I just found your sight while perusing Pinterest. Eye Candy! LOVE your style! You have inspired me to rethink some decorating pieces stuck away in the attic.

    Question: the picture of the row houses on the wall above the 3-drawer chest. Where did you find it?

  58. Just beautiful Yvonne….can you tell me where you got the Sign in your dining area I am the child of a King????

  59. What a beautiful home. I always am envious of homes with so much white, especially couches and chairs done in white. I would love them nut fear they would never look good after a short time. I also love your hooks for your aprons. I have so many staffordhsire plates that I could use. Can you tell me where you found those hooks that also hold the plates?

  60. Beautiful inspiration!! Thanks for sharing your talent. I love decorating as well. I would to know the name of the print of the row houses if you have it so, I could try to fin it or something similar.

  61. I so love your decorating style. I have copied many of your ideas in my own home. May God continue to bless you.could your big secret be a new grandbaby? I pray so. Debbie

    1. Hi Debbie, It’s no secret that we are expecting our second grandchild… a baby girl… in June! I am so excited. I’m sure I’ll be sharing a tutu post and how to make hairbows!

  62. Thank you for sharing your home, your life, and your words of wisdom with us. You are a true inspiration!

  63. So much beauty in spring and your home is gorgeous! Hope mine will look as good when finished! Happy Easter!
