We are launching a new series called Dream Home! 5 years ago Garrett and I bought 5 acres in an absolutely gorgeous gated neighborhood. Our lot is filled with large oak trees and overlooks an equestrian center, where the horses frolic in the fields. I have literally dreamed about this land and the beautiful home that would one day sit on it for years. You know what I’m talking about, the home you think of every time you see a Pinterest image that makes your heart flutter or open a glossy magazine only to find the most perfect example of the vaulted great room that you thought only existed in your imagination.
To say that I was excited to break ground and start construction is an understatement. I am over the moon and can’t wait to share all my inspiration sources, the process of how I designed each part of our new home the products I am most excited to use!
Each week I will cover swoon worthy architectural elements, new and sought after construction materials and the classic design principals and trends that guide each design decision I make. Follow along each Friday and watch our Dream Home come to reality, I can’t wait to share it all with you!
Here’s a sneak peak into a few of my inspo boards and images of our land and our progress so far!
