{house tour} family room & kitchen.

i’m so so excited to be sharing our new home with you! we have been working hard and planning and DIYing like crazy! after being in the building process for 6 months, i had lots of time to envision and dream up a plan for each and every space in our home. one of the things that made us fall in love with our floorplan was the open concept. if you have kids, you probably completely understand my want for an open concept living space. i spend many hours in the kitchen and it’s always been one of my favorite places to be, so knowing we could have eyes on our family room, and babies playing at all times was a dream.
this is the view from our front door. ๐Ÿ™‚
this gallery wall was another elaborate idea that swirled in my head for a few months. actually bringing it to life was quite a process, but in the end – it’s more than i even hoped for. i ordered the rad california and big c from craftcuts.com, then kyle and i stained them with an ebony stain. one of my favorite parts of this wall are the kids silhouettes. we did them ourselves on my handy cricut. ๐Ÿ™‚ pretty obsessed.
paint color – sherwin williams ‘agreeable gray’
trim color – sherwin williams ‘extra white’
couch – ashley furniture ‘chamberly alloy sectional’
accent pillows – at home
wood california and c – craftcuts.com {unfinished}
white wood frames – cut it out {unfinished}
rug – ikea
not sure if you remember, but this was our old shabby chic white coffee table from our old house. we had a big black rectangle table in here, and i was planning to sell this one. but i felt so sad letting it go…then had a little epiphany, and decided to give it a facelift. i knew it would be the perfect pop of color this room needed.
forever our home. โค

here’s the view from the kitchen.
i dream of a wall of white built-ins. but since it wasn’t an option, i thought i’d find something that came close.
another selling point on this floorplan, was the giant vaulted ceilings throughout the family room area and those big beautiful windows.
entertainment center – ikea
curtains – amazon

when kyle and i went into our ‘deco’ appointment for our house, we spent hours upon hours picking out every little thing…cabinets, paint, flooring, fixtures, hardware, lighting, granite, backsplash, appliances, trim, where each outlet was, what cables we needed, details…details…DETAILS. it was one of the most overwhelming days of my life. so surreal, so stressful, so wonderful. the whole house was dreamy…but the kitchen was going to put me on cloud nine. for me, it’s the heart of the home. i spend so much timeย in the kitchen, and i had this thing dreamed up in my head for all of my adult life. some of our options were a little limited, but we chose my white custom cabinets, black countertops, a white subway tile backsplash, black farmhouse hardware, stainless steel appliances, a swoonworthy black matte faucet, and the cherry on top…my farmhouse sink. {all the heart eyes!!!}
appliances – whirlpool
faucet – pfister
teal mason jar decor – world market
chalkboard, YUM letters and wood plaques – hobby lobby
still working on curtains for the dining room, but here it is in all it’s glory. ๐Ÿ˜‰

welp. that’s it! hope you enjoyed your virtual tour. i wish we could have you all over for dinner. guess you’ll have to make a trip to texas! ๐Ÿ™‚

i’ll have weston’s room up on the blog next week. get excited for some serious star wars love.

xo, marley.

  1. It is so beautiful and well done! Love the farm sink. We are adding a second story this year and recreating space on the first floor too, so big job! I personally, want to move back East – so done with California. Your home and personal touch and keeping the best parts in your heart and sharing – forever love!
