  6. Just saw you over on YHL and I have to tell you your home is gorgeous!! I live just a hop skip away from you guys in Arlington and this makes me want to move out of my one bedroom apartment and buy a nice house just so I can decorate it exactly like yours! Haha everything looks beautiful :)

  8. I was also sent to you by way of YHL. I just have to say your house is by far my favorite that they've house crashed. I just love all of the choices you've made and am amazed that so much has been DIY! Maybe one day my home will be as beautiful as yours (or the Petersik's), here's hoping. :)

  10. Hello! I am visiting by way of YHL. Your home is just gorgeous! I am neighbor, live in Ashburn and aspiring diy-er but in the NOVICE (extremely novice) category. Thanks for the inspiriation!

  11. You have the exact same floorplan as my house on the first floor. (Our second floor is slightly different b/c we have a room over our garage though)... I love yoru ideas. I'm always fighting with the narrow hallways and trying to make it look larger. I might copy some of your ideas for opening up the space!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I LOVE your house! You did an amazing job! Probably my favorite house crash by YHL ever. Do you have a tutorial for the wine racks?

  14. Okay, so I've been looking *everywhere* for a wooden tray like the one you have on your dining room table. Where, pray tell, did you find it?! Please tell me you didn't make it out of the same fallen tree your coffee table came from ... ;)

    1. My hubby actually made the tray out of the same wood that we used to frame the map and the mirror in the powder room. He pulled it from a dumpster! I can ask if he can make you one, but he is pretty expensive :) haha!

  15. Beautiful home! So many details but classic and simple. May I give one suggestion??
    LIGHTING, LIGHTING, LIGHTING! Redo all your home tour photos during the daylight hours and all the details will stand out so much more. It will be a much better way to showcase your home. But regardless you guys have done an amazing job.

    1. I know! Our house is so hard to photograph because we don't get a lot of natural light coming in. John had a tough time too but somehow managed to get great photos. Thanks for the suggestion!

  17. I found your blog from YHL today and I'm so impressed with your design taste and your ability to DIY! I'm a northern virginia girl too so I've seen so many 80's colonials like yours. My husbands parents even own a home just like yours which they keep trying to get us to buy. I can't believe the transformation. We might actually consider taking them up on their offer now that I see you can really de-80s the home!

  18. I found you through YHL too! You are being blog stalked by so many!
    Your house is amazeballs! You guys have done such a great job! I have some tree stumps that I saved from a tree I lost in a tornado and I am going to make table from them too! My yard is a hot mess between the debris nonsense, stump grinding, contractors and two large dogs. Feel free to come visit me and give my litte plot of land a makeover. :)
    I would love to know the paint color you used in the guest bedroom. It may be what I am looking for, for my "master" bedroom!

  26. Love your house! Can you tell me where you got the tile for the backsplash in your kitchen?? Thanks so much!

    1. http://www.marblesystems.com/en/category/stone-type/marble/blend-mosaic/verona I found it for 1/2 price online but that place doesn't have it available any more. It looks like Marble Systems does though if you have a rep in your area. Worth the online search though if you need a better price! Of course, no place has the same name for anything. Good Luck!!!

  27. Your house is awesome!! I found you through Young House Love house crashing as well, and I have to say, your kitchen is my favorite. The little window seat with the shelves - SWOON. My husband and I live in CA, and bought our little fixer upper 5 years ago and have been SLOWLY updating. Tackling the kitchen next, as it is currently AWFUL; Peeling floor tiles, mdf cab. doors with the fake wood all scraped off at the corners..oof. But I'm so excited b/c its shaped just like yours!! and now I know what to do with our weird little window nook!! That is just beautiful, I've always wanted a window seat and now I have a place to make one, so excited! Sorry, long comment, but just wanted to say thanks so much for the inspiration! :D
