Beautiful Homes of Instagram is one of Home Bunch‘s most popular series because it not only shows how homeowners design their own home but also because it shares a variety of styles. Today, I am very happy to have Heather Strommen from @SweetShadyLane. I’ve loved her historic lakehouse for some time now and her timeless way to design her home always leaves me inspired to say the least.

Today you will get to know about Heather and all of the details of this special home. She is sharing all details, from paint colors to the story of her home under each picture.

Let this house tour transport you…

 

Beautiful Homes of Instagram

Classic Home Architectural Details. was built in 1937. We purchased her in 2014 only hours after walking through for the very first time. We hired Landschute to lovingly restore her to her previous glory. Funny thing was, we were looking for a new house, but her charm could not be ignored. We fell in love immediately.

“Mona Bina – Home For All” was built in 1937. We purchased her in 2014 only hours after walking through for the very first time. We hired Landschute to lovingly restore her to her previous glory. Funny thing was, we were looking for a new house, but her charm could not be ignored. We fell in love immediately.

Our builder, Jon Monson is notorious for restoring old homes. Where most people may have seen a “tear down” we, along with Jon saw potential.

Lake side details of Mona Bina: Diamond windows, lattice railing, beautiful stone steps. In her full lakeside glory… She is truly something to behold.

Living on a lake is like living with living art. The time of day, the light, the clouds, the sailboats that drift by… Every minute of everyday day is different and beautiful in its own way. Here, Dorothy and Buster our English Bulldogs are enjoying the “golden hour” on the lake as the sun is just setting.

That first visit with the realtor, I opened the front door and I felt like I had opened it a thousand times. It was an explainable feeling. The new, expansive front door is painted Benjamin Moore. The anchor door knocker is from Nantucket. Rug is from International Market Square “Sale Room” (open to public.) Just steps away, visitors are greeted with Landschute’s magnificent work-coffered ceilings, wood panels, intricate moldings and details upon details as Lake Minnetonka and all its beauty beckons you in.

I love to move things around. Pictured here is an antique table of my Grandmother’s. I love the simplicity of just the table against the bare floor.

These bamboo chairs have a story. I was at a furniture consignment shop in Florida, and they were on hold for someone else. I begged and pleaded to buy them, but the manager made me wait until the end of the day to see if the customers was going to follow through. At 5:59 I was told I could buy the chairs! I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited about a “find” in my life. I shipped them home knowing they would be the perfect match for our new home.

Mona Bina came with a carriage house. Back in 1937, this home was actually the gardeners. We remodeled “Mini Mona”, as we call her, first and lived in there while we waited for the “big house” to be done. We have 4 older kids, 2 at the time were in high school while we lived here and it was so charming and warm, sometimes I wondered if I’d even be able to leave it. It’s a real charmer. Currently, my mother and step-dad lives here and they are happy as clams.

20 Modern Contemporary Dining Rooms with Light Wood Flooring

We would all agree that the flooring of the interior has a huge impact on the appeal of the space.

Aside from that, it could also affect the way you access the area.

With that, your choice of materials for your home’s flooring is very important.

Want some proof?

One of the most common flooring materials is wood since it looks natural and it has a thicker wear surface which can be sanded or finished many times. This is true if you use solid wood floors instead of the engineered ones.

But whatever you use, the wooden appeal it gives your space is still the same.

Well, today, we are going to show you a round-up of dining rooms that made use of light wood flooring. You will see that these dining areas look really great with this kind of flooring.

Here they are:

1. Wick Lane, Christchurch

Wick Lane, Christchurch

Ian Roman Photography

This is a very beautiful interior! It looks really refreshing with the use of white, light wood flooring and a textured wall feature.

2. Loomis Custom Home

Loomis Custom Home

S. D. Olsen Construction

The geometric print of the carpet adds beauty to this dining area. Love the design of the chairs and the lighting! You can also see that their wine storage is located just near the dining space.

3. Lake Michigan Cottage

Lake Michigan Cottage

The Homestead Shop Inc.

This dining space also has the kitchen and living area in it. Although the space is small, it has everything one needs in it.

4. Home #19: SALA Architects

A simple modern dining area with a classic Scandinavian touch. Notice that the windows allow a good view of the outdoor space. Look at all that snow!

5. The Home of Bianca

The Home of Bianca

Holly Marder

This dining room used light wood floor which is a good match with the white walls and white furniture.

6. Country Crib

Country Crib

Actual Size Projects

Light flooring with darker siding of the island completes the natural warm appeal of the space. Notice the classic looking pendant lights above the dining table.

7. The Thicket

The Thicket

Studio Ectypos

Light wood meets the tight, commercial-grade Berber carpet of the living area. The space has a cozier feeling with the good amount of natural light in the area.

8. Duplex

Duplex

Lynn Gaffney Architect, PLLC

Work with modern gray colors with light wood. Mixing subtly warm woods with serious grays produces a sophisticated balance that brings out the best of both.

James Merrell Architects, P.C.

This mid-sized contemporary dining space has light wood floor and brown walls. The floor-to-ceiling window allows natural light to get into the area. I love the dining chair in here!

10. Riverdale Renovation

The wooden dining table in here matches with the flooring. The kitchen cabinet is a good contrast to the white walls.

11. Goethe Modern

Goethe Modern

Randall Architects

The dining space has all white colors in it and the artworks in it look very nice too.

12. Santa Cruz Surf House

Santa Cruz Surf House

Form + Field

Although one side of the wall is black, it doesn’t look dull because of the light wood flooring and the white wall on the other side.

13. Modern Home

Modern Home

Kimberly Demmy Design

The owner of this house is an art collector. In order to highlight the artworks, he made everything neutral just like what you can see here. Obviously, the art works indeed pop up! Aside from that, warm wood tones were selected to keep the house from becoming cold and sterile.

14. PH Tribeca

PH Tribeca

B Interior LLC

Don’t you love this bright and airy modern dining space? There are many white elements in here that made it bright and beautiful. It also used wood grain for the tile floors.

15. 648 McCants

Salt Marsh Contracting

Aside from the light wood floor and white walls of this dining area, the round glass dining table and the lighting added appeal to it.

16. Putney, Loft Conversion

Putney, Loft Conversion

wildingandwolfe

A light floor can tone down the formality of a dining area, giving it a casual feel like what you can see in this space. The yellow pads on the chairs added a bright contrast to the area.

17. Canton de Vaud, Switzerland

Canton de Vaud, Switzerland

Ardesia Design

This elevated dining area has a wooden flooring that is fitted throughout. The existing wooden beams in the ceilings were painted with a white-washed look to match the floor. Lovely space indeed!

18. Ocean Avenue Penthouse

Ocean Avenue Penthouse

Sarah Barnard Design

A wall of mirrors virtually expands this dining area which also has floor-to-ceiling glass windows. From here, one can get a good look at the waters outside.

19. Menlo Park Modern

Menlo Park Modern

Shaw Cabinetry & Woodworks

Isn’t this a beautiful space? You can see that there are many wooden features in here but it is balanced with the use of glass in the dining table and lighting.

20. Lovell Kitchen

Lovell Kitchen

Union Studio

The flooring of this house is from a local mill. It is laminated it onto a plywood backer and it has a very subtle grey stain and the topcoat is Bona Naturale. The result is very nice especially with the brick walls on the side.

Although other flooring materials already gained popularity like concrete, wood still remains common and popular. That is why many homes still prefer to use them especially in areas with lesser traffic. But others also use it in public areas like the living room and dining room. The usage of wooden flooring adds a natural appeal to a space which is the reason why many homeowners still use it despite the wide variety of options available in the market. Do you use wood for your home? Let us know in the comment section below.

Back Country Home: A Small Modern Residence in New Zealand

When one has a small lot, it doesn’t mean that they can no longer have a lovely home.

Well, a home’s beauty isn’t about size, right?

Of course not!

Even when you have a small lot and you’ll build a small house, it can still be called a home!

Think about this for a moment.

You really do not need a spacious home. Many families live in a small house but it has everything they need. Aside from that, what matters most is to have a happy family whatever is the size of your home.

Today, we are going to show you a small modern residence designed by LTD Architectural Design Studio. The house is located in Puhoi, which is about 50 km north of Auckland, New Zealand.

Let us take a look at how the architects designed this mall modern home:

Location: Auckland, New Zealand

Designer: LTD Architectural Design Studio

Style: Modern

Number of Levels: Two-storey

Unique feature: A small home comprised of a single volume, complete with everything the family needs.

Similar House: Dark Brick Courtyard House Features a Central Courtyard

Located on a secluded bush-clad site this house plays on the uniquely NZ typology of the back country hut. Aiming at simplicity it is comprised of a single volume for living/cooking/ eating and a lean-to annex housing the lower floor service/sleeping areas.

Auckland, New Zealand

The spaces are open and shared as opposed to enclosed and separate. The experience is one of enhanced connection with each other, and of an enhanced connection to the surrounding environment.

Back Country Home

Extensive use of locally sourced bandsawn macrocarpa inside and out, passive heating /ventilation and high performance insulation make the house of low impact environmentally.

Back Country Home living room

Just off the deck is the living room that opens on two sides. This allows the family to have an indoor / outdoor living experience. The living area opens fully on two sides, having the feel of an outdoor room, and the fire and baths located on the deck draw daily activities out of the house and into nature.

Back Country Home bathtub

At the front of the house, there’s a deck with a board-formed concrete fireplace and sunken bathtubs, that overlooks the valley. When not in use, the sunken bathtubs have a cover that hides them from sight. This cover can also be propped up and used as an outdoor dining table, with people sitting directly on the deck with cushions and their feet in the empty tubs.

Back Country Home living

This shape-shifting room is adorned with a striking jade green drapery that allows the option of being an extension to the living room space or enclosed as a guest bedroom.

Back Country Home dining

Behind the living room is the kitchen and dining room. Minimalist white kitchen cabinets and dining chairs compliment the white walls. Next to the dining room is a sliding wall that opens to reveal the children’s open plan shared bedroom and play area, as well as access to another outdoor space.

Back Country Home bed

The mezzanine is home to a bedroom. Four skylights are positioned above the bed, which is partially suspended from the sloped ceiling. From behind the bed you can see the living room below. Opposite the bed is a simple two-person desk positioned beneath large black-framed windows to take advantage of the view.

Back Country Home mezzanine

The bedroom is actually a mezzanine and you can see the slope of the roof here which also has the windows. Also seen here are pendant lights and a swing chair.

Back Country Home dining

Beside the dining table is an outline of the stairs that feature hidden lighting that highlights the design of the stairs. Wood bookshelves run alongside the stairs that lead up to the mezzanine.

Back Country Home stairs side

You can get here a closer look of the staircase as well as the bookcase on the side. Isn’t this a good idea to use the wall space?

Back Country Home vanity

At the top of the stairs is a built-in closet and a small vanity area.

Back Country Home bathroom

The main bathroom for the house is located between the dining room and children’s bedroom. A simple color palette of wood and white has been used with a skylight adding natural light during the daytime.

Back Country Home material

Rough hewn natural materials tie the house effortlessly into its setting, while galvanised corrugated iron is used to strengthen the hut aesthetic.

LTD Architectural Design Studio designed this modern home. The mix of materials in this house looks nice which adds warmth to the home’s interior. The exterior has a gray wooden finish while the interior retained the natural wooden texture. If you want to live in a home that is cozy even with just a small floor area, then this design is a good inspiration for you. Can you tell me what features of the home do you like the most?

Bungalow Renovation Ideas

Bungalow Renovation Ideas. Bungalow Renovation Ideas. 1900s Bungalow Renovation Ideas Bungalow. The roofline was extended, creating a bold new façade that spans three directions, and the floor plan was opened up, allowing for a fresh, modern feel.  Renovation Ideas #Bungalow #Renovation #BungalowRenovation #BungalowRenovationIdeasIdeas Rachel Manning
 
Marie, of Marie Flanigan Interiors, and her husband, Joe, purchased a 1920s Heights bungalow that was begging for a transformation. Rather than demolish the home, they opted to restore it, unveiling the natural beauty that lives within. In order to give this timeworn home a fresh lease on life, she decided to focus on architectural updates that would lend a contemporary vibe while stylishly preserving the integrity of this historic home. The roofline was extended, creating a bold new façade that spans three directions, and the floor plan was opened up, allowing for a fresh, modern feel. Custom built-in cabinetry spans most of the home’s spaces allowing for ample, much-needed storage while contemporary plumbing and lighting fixtures enhance both style and function.

Inside the home, Marie focused on incorporating traditional craftsman-style elements, including transom windows and coffered ceilings, in order to remain true to the historic architecture found throughout the Heights neighborhood. A reinvigorated color palette pairs nicely with timeless hard finishes including the use of natural stone and hexagonal tiling, a common sight in homes from the 20’s. Furniture and accessory selections were driven by the desire to effortlessly blend classic pieces with more modern ones, creating a home that is at the height of both comfort and style. Antique furnishings play an important role in the home’s design, infusing spaces with a unique sense of history that aptly highlights the property’s historic character. Most notable are a vintage Valenti leather campaign chair which resides in the study, an antique Chinese high back accent chair in the living room, authentic French jug lamps in the master bedroom and antique Oushak rugs throughout.

A maple tree stands at the front corner of the home and its foliage changes colors with the seasons. Confederate jasmine was used along the fence line and two 100-year old existing trees were left intact throughout the renovation.
Cement pavers featuring black star gravel borders were installed throughout. Galvanized metal fencing with wood accents was used at the front of the home for a more open feel while solid stained wood fencing was used in the back for added privacy.

Kitchen

Key Design Concept for the Space:

-Respect and maintain the American Craftsman details found within the space while injecting a fresh, clean canvas for an updated culinary space.

-Utilize natural materials that wear well over time.

-Install a coffered ceiling that defines the space, adds depth, and lends unique architectural interest.

-Include multiple seating groups for a young family to gather and entertain.

-Increase natural light by extending the side of the home, making the kitchen and breakfast room more spacious.

-Focus on increased counter space and storage for a family who loves to cook!

Hello, friends.

Thank you so much for being here! I am loving Marie’s home and her impeccable work. Wasn’t it a beautiful tour? I hope you enjoyed it and felt inspired.

I need to run now – we’re going to an orchard with the kids and I can’t wait for it! 🙂

Have a Blessed day, everyone! We’ll talk again tomorrow!

with Love,

Luciane from HomeBunch.com

5 Easy Tips to Throwing a Great Backyard Party

Lake house exterior architecture design. Lake house exterior architecture design. Lake house exterior architecture design. Lake house exterior architecture design #Lakehouse #Lakehouseexterior #Lakehousearchitecture #Lakehousedesign Stonewood, LLC

When you’re a new homeowner with a new backyard, one of the first things that you’re going to want to do is throw a party to celebrate. However, before you rush out and invite all of your friends over for a get-together, remember that a bad party will live in memory even longer than a great one. With that in mind, here are five key tips to ensuring that your backyard get-togethers are good memories in the making.

 

1: Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

Benjamin Moore Exterior Paint Color. Light Tan exterior paint color Benjamin Moore Shenandoah Taupe AC-36. Light Tan exterior paint color Benjamin Moore Shenandoah Taupe AC-36. Light Tan exterior paint color Benjamin Moore Shenandoah Taupe AC-36 #LightTanpaintcolor #tanexterior #exteriorpaintcolor #exterior #paintcolor #BenjaminMooreShenandoahTaupeAC36 Stonewood, LLC

A fence is more than just a boundary between your property and your neighbor’s. It’s also a privacy curtain, a way to muffle the noise from your choice of music, and keeps your business your own. Choosing the right fence for your needs can be difficult – thankfully it’s easy to find a reputable fence company to help you find something that will suit your needs perfectly.

 

2: Grass Doesn’t Have to be Greener on the Other Side

Remember that when you plan a party, atmosphere is important. You might plan a terrific party, but if your backyard lawn is sparse and uninviting, you’re not going to have the best time. Make sure your lawn is ready for the traffic ahead of time. Learning what kind of grass you have and how to take care of it will make sure that your lawn is ready for everything from bocce ball to croquet.

 

3: Get Rid of the Bugs

Lake house balcony. Lake house balcony. Lake house balcony. Lake house balcony #Lakehouse #balcony Stonewood, LLC

If there’s one thing that’s almost guaranteed to send all your guests running inside, it’s bugs. From flying pests like gnats and mosquitoes to the crawling ants, nobody relishes these uninvited guests. There are a bevy of options for you to repel them, however. Whether you use tiki torches laden with citronella oil or timed misters attached to your fences, you can keep the flying pests to a minimum. And for dealing with ants, a simple barrier of ant bait and repellent around your backyard and home can keep them under control as well.

 

4: Everyone Needs a Place to Sit

Standing desks may be the hottest thing in the workplace, but when it comes to a party, people want to relax. Make sure that there’s a spot for everyone on your guest list to sit down, and add a few more chairs just in case someone unexpected shows up. Arrange seating in groups of three or four to encourage guests to sit and talk. Don’t forget tables for people to put drinks and food either.

 

5: Don’t Forget the Food

Home back rear with deck plans. Home back rear with deck plans. Home back rear with deck plans. Home back rear with deck plans. Home back rear with deck plans. Home back rear with deck plans #Homebackrear #deck #plans Stonewood, LLC

Speaking of food, don’t think that every backyard get-together has to be centered around dinner. Consider inviting friends over for a Sunday morning brunch, complete with mimosas on the back porch as you enjoy a pleasant spring morning. And if you’re not the best cook in the world, turn the party into a potluck event with every guest bringing their favorite dish. This is a great way to host a late Saturday lunch.

 

Backyards and parties go together like summer and ice cream. And once you get used to it, throwing an impromptu gathering is easy and fun.

Thanks to you, my loyal readers, Home Bunch has being inspiring and growing for almost a decade. My passion for interior design wouldn’t be enough to work on it for all of this time if I didn’t have the kind of support I get from each and every one of you. You show your support for coming here, following me on social media and with your comments and emails. Although I love sharing the magazine-ready homes designed by the various interior designers, builders and architects I feature, I must say that nothing inspires me more than real homeowners. Yes, people like yourself, people that work hard to make the best they can with the place they call “home”. This series, “Beautiful Homes of Instagram”, started with the goal of letting others know about these real homeowners, so you could have the chance to meet some people you haven’t yet. This series is to showcase these talented people and it’s for us to learn about their experience and story.

Leslie from @my100yearoldhome is a person you can immediately identify yourself with. She is kind, funny and down to earth. Do you know those people you meet and instantly feel you’ve known them for many years? That’s Leslie!

Trust me, you will learn a lot with her and you’ll love to see every single picture she is sharing with us. Thank you for this spectacular tour, Leslie.

 

Hi everyone! My name is Leslie of @my100yearoldhome and I am so excited to share our home with you. I still cannot believe Luciane invited me to be a part of “Beautiful Homes of Instagram”. When she first reached out to me, my first thought was, “But our home isn’t beautiful. It’s just a home with of a bunch of my flea market finds!”

Our home is actually 102 years old and only two families have owned it since it was built in 1915. It was originally built as a wedding gift and then passed down within the family for two generations. My in-laws bought the home in 1969. In 1998 we bought their home … and they bought ours! We were looking to upsize and they were looking to downsize. You can only imagine what our moving day was like!
My husband Dave and I have been married for thirty-one years and we have three grown boys who are ages 26, 24 and 23. My husband and three sons all played sports in college so our home has had plenty of wear and tear, such as baseballs flying through an antique glass windows and soccer cleat marks on our family room coffee table. But these memories are what make our house a home and they will be with us forever (including the table!).

When we bought the home we knew we wanted to remodel it to fit our growing boys (did I mention they are 6’7”, 6’6” and 6’5” tall?). So in 2000 we remodeled the downstairs by opening up and expanding the maid’s room into a family room, expanding the kitchen, remodeling two bathrooms and adding a back porch. In 2008 we remodeled our master bedroom by adding a walk-in closet and new bath. We used the same architect for both remodels, who specialized in historic renovations. We used the original house plans as a guide to match everything, including the moldings, windows, and French doors.

We live in the Pasadena area in Southern California and since our home looks like it could be located on the east coast we have been fortunate to host a lot of film companies. Our home has been in ten movies (including Raising Helen, Fired Up and A Mighty Wind), about twenty TV shows (such as Mad Men, Criminal Minds and CSI Cyber) and nearly 50 commercials. This year, during the Super Bowl, a Skittles commercial aired, that was filmed in our master bedroom. The most popular room in our home for filming is our kitchen, by far. We have even had fake snow on our home numerous times!

I am a full-time artist and have been painting professionally for interior designers for years. Home design has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I am always watching HGTV (my husband calls it the “talking lamp” as it’s the first thing that is turned on when I enter a room) and I quickly fell in love with Fixer Upper and what I call “farmhouse style”. I started an instagram account and blog this spring and never expected how much fun I would have sharing our one hundred year old home. My blog serves as an inspiration for me and it’s a fun place to share how I have redecorated our home and simplified the design and color palette. I recently redid our family room, living room and master bedroom in a very neutral palette.
My decorating style is “flea market comfortable”. I love visiting our local flea markets looking for great finds for our home. I tend to style our home in everything white and chippy, and I love using an item for a purpose it was not originally intended.

I collect a lot of things such as vintage china, old quilts, silver pitchers, Rae Dunn pottery and cranberry glass. But my favorite passion is entertaining. I love to cook and set a creative table, so we host dinner parties for friends all year round.

Our home technically has four stories. I love our California basement (which just means it’s really small) and fifteen years ago we put in a wine cellar. The basement is the perfect place to keep wine cool. The only addition to the original footprint of our home is the family room and back porch that we added in 2000.

When we moved in to the home in 1998, the only thing we did was paint and changed the light fixtures. Unfortunately none of the original fixtures remained in the house so I shopped the flea markets for fixtures that were the style of when the home was built.
Our floor plan is very traditional. When you enter the home the living room is on the left and the dining room is on the right. Earlier this year I remodeled the living room and had slipcovers made for the couches.

We remodeled our kitchen in 2000. Our kitchen is the nucleus of our home and it’s the place where we always gather. I love to cook and entertain and our kitchen is perfect for both. Every December we host our annual Christmas party and I still cook all of the food, even though the guest list is over to 250 people. It takes an incredible amount of work but I use a color-coded spreadsheet that keeps me on track. It’s really true!
There use to be a laundry room in the back of the kitchen but we removed it to open up the kitchen view to the back yard. I designed the kitchen with our architect and chose to make our cabinets 2” taller than the standard height as we are all a very tall family. We lived in the house for almost three years with no dishwasher (and three young boys) so I ended up adding two dishwashers when we remodeled. They are great for entertaining.

The biggest change to our home was the expansion of the family room and kitchen in the remodel of 2000. We knew we needed a large space for our growing boys, especially when it came time to watching sports. Our architect even designed a large built-in linen press to house our TV and stereo equipment.

I recently redid the family room by adding new slipcovers, a chair, a rug and art. I also hung three white wood chandeliers from a vintage ladder over the dining table. The white vintage windows on the wall (see picture below) are from the Long Beach flea market.

My new project room was formerly my office, and it had beautiful original wood on the walls, which was very dark. I didn’t really need an office and my life as a blogger necessitated the need for a craft room instead. So I painted the room white (it four coats) and I now just love this room! I found the table at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. It was painted turquoise but I sanded it and painted the legs black and its perfect as a work table. I have a separate art studio in our Carriage House (in the back yard) so this room is where all of the DIY’s for my blog happen!

Master Bedroom

In 2008 we decreased the size of our master bedroom so we could add a larger walk-in closet and bathroom. I love how the front eaves of our home add so much personality to this room. This summer we did a second renovation in our master bedroom, which included paint, new marble on the fireplace, new curtains, bedding, and new furniture. I made the headboard myself out of an old door and I love it.

Our back yard has changed a lot since we moved in. We added the back porch, outdoor kitchen, pool and recently converted the paddle tennis court to a sand volleyball court.
