It dawned on me a few weeks ago that I have never shared a house tour of our Tanglewood home that has not been season or holiday centric. So before I start decorating for fall I thought I would take a few pictures and give you a look at our home of 21 months!
Welcome to our Tanglewood home…
Let me tell you a little bit about our Tanglewood House.
This is our second forever home. Some call it downsizing, and we certainly did but now that our children have families and homes of their own we wanted a home that was the right size for our lifestyle!
And we found just what we needed and most wanted in our Tanglewood House!
Our home is a villa-style house that sits on the 7th tee of a country golf course.
There are 6 villas that make up 12 homes here. Each home faces the street and the back of our homes faces the golf course.
In the past 18 months, we have been changing things and making the Tanglewood House feel like our home.
Before we moved in we had the entire house repainted Simply White by Benjamin Moore. Because our home is an open concept home we wanted to paint it one overall color that would look bright and create a sense of cohesiveness and flow between the rooms.
There was also carpeting in the bedrooms and loft. So we had all the carpeting removed and had hardwood flooring installed to match the flooring that was already in our home.
Here is a post about the Tanglewood House when we had lived here for one week. Oh, we had a lot of work to do!
It’s exciting to move from a home that was pretty much how we wanted it and move to a home and have projects to do to make it our own!

Come on I’ll take you on a little tour of our outdoor spaces.
The little sign on our front door says it all! We love to get together with family and friends here!
Our patio is a great place to see the golfers hit their balls off the 7th tee.
Our foyer is long and interesting!
It is dressed up simply and welcoming!
My office is just inside the front door as you step into the foyer. I usually start my day with a big cup of coffee, working for an hour or two in my pj’s before working out or swimming, and then getting dressed. I love working from home!
Another big project we completed soon after we moved in was to add built-in bookshelves across the back of the room and the french door to the office opening.
This room is such a nice space to spend my day! It has a big window and even on rainy days looks bright!
The living room at the Tanglewood House is light and bright and open to so much of our home.
The fireplace makeover was one of our projects soon after we moved into Tanglewood.
Our home does not have a formal dining room but a very centrally located dining area.
This is a busy place! We are making the most lovely memories here.
Our kitchen was the biggest makeover in our home.
It’s open and interesting!
This room is a work in progress! I’ll share all the updates soon!
This room has three walls and they all have lots of windows. The views of the golf course are beautiful from here.
The colors of the master bedroom are my favorite! They are soft and serene!
This room is light and roomy!
Our guests love the views from this bedroom’s windows!
OTHER SPACES IN OUR HOME
Here are the other spaces in our home that we are still working on!

I will keep updating this post as we change our decor to reflect our lifestyle and tastes!
Thanks for taking this little house tour of our “just right for us” home!
