So excited to share this next home with you. When Irene emailed me I wasn't just happy with her lovely home pictures, but in love with her blog as well. It was a win, win situation for me.
This is Irene and her hubby's Evan's first home. With a big chunk of money going towards a down payment they have been decorating their home on a budget. Irene hasn't let that prevent her from decorating a home that is not only fun, but a reflection of them as a couple.
Let's take a peek into her home :
I've been itching to paint my black (originally white) front door a fun color. Look at what the yummy blue Irene picked.
- Peek of the striped shade that was a simple white roller shade that Irene painted stripes on.
-Cool moroccan lanterns that were a left over from her sister's wedding.
Moving along we can see a peek into Irene's home office:
-Andy Warhol look-alike that Irene found in the trash and fixed up with a new frame.
-A little animal touch (a girl after my own heart) from Cost Plus World Market.
-Cool light pendant was only $45 from a local shop.
-The desk originally had faux wood on the backside. Irene fixed it with some black and white graphic wrapping paper!
-Glossy black fireplace.
-Wood paneling was giving a coat of white to brighten up the space.
-The little owl by the fireplace was a $20 find from Homegoods.
-Pink wing back was a thrift store find that was only $45!
-Crazy chair is actually a patio furniture from Pier 1!
-Cool faux ostrich table was a splurge from a local shop on sale for $700.
* Irene couldn’t stop thinking about that table for 2 months so made a great decision in picking it up. Yes, it was expensive, but it’s something she will always love and can used in a favorite color schemes throughout the years.
Close up of groovy lamp that was a flea market find for $40.
-Greek key end table. Reminds me of this bargain one.
-Sunburst mirror wall. Irene picked them at a local shop and with the help of ebay.
-Artwork was painted by hubby’s great aunt. Love that it has history behind it.
-Has to be that pop of blue on the wall.
Accent chair in room:
-All of it!
-Yellow chair was a flea market find. Irene bought two for $100.
-Garden stool from Homegoods
-Rug from IKEA
-Yummy brown paint color
-Orange wicker chair in corner
-More artwork from hubby’s great aunt.
Front view of bed:
-Amazing lattice lamps from Homegoods. Totally love these. I never saw them at my Homegoods.
They kinda remind me of these beauties from Jill Rosenwald:
Dressers with more knick knacks from Homegoods:
Lastly Irene gave us a little peek at her bookcase:
-Mid-century candlestick holders way up top are from a flea market.
-Vintage books from hubby’s grandfather.
-Horse head book ends from flea market.
I’m running low on open house tours so make sure you all start snapping pics of your home and sharing them with us!
