It’s hard to believe we moved into this home exactly THREE years ago this week. In some ways it seems like we are still moving in and have so many projects left, but at the same time so much has changed in three short years. We added another child to our family, we had to switch around rooms, finish decorating rooms, and we are STILL finishing rooms! This past year I have completed more rooms than ever and I’m taking more risks than ever before! I have shown you reveals throughout the year but I wanted to bring it all together and give you an updated house tour! So welcome to my Rustic Modern Home Tour.
Every summer, we pick a new exterior project to tackle and last year was our fence! You can read more about that here. This year, we are landscaping our massive ditch in front of our house with a really cool dry stream and modern plants. I can’t wait to show the finished look, it’s almost done!
I switch up our front porch a few times a year, but here is our front porch all decorated with modern containers and lots of greenery. I even shared some tips on how I arrange my flowers here.
As you enter you have our entry way, that hasn’t changed all that much since I did it last year. I still love that sawhorse table and oversized mirrors, I just added a lit bit of greenery.
Right off our entry way is my husband’s office. This was a project that took me over a year to complete but I’m so glad I kept working on it until my vision was met. It is a mixture of both masculine and rustic and a classic look.
This is probably one of the rooms I am most proud of because I really pushed myself in the design and wanted to go big!
Through the glass French doors you can see right out into the entry and all the kids running and screaming by all day :)
For our main living space, I have added even more black and white than ever before and I’m sorta on a kick. I want everyyyyything black and white in this space! I love the color combo, it’s classic and it can merge into so many different styles.
One of the things I do each season is switch out the pillows on this couch, it always seems to freshen up the space and give it new life every few months!
A few years ago I was looking for a more industrial looking coffee table for this space and I came across this one for only $170!!!! It’s such a good deal. I will say the top will scratch if you put metal to metal, but it’s a great solution for a great price.
I really love this view of our downstairs. The white cabinets really brighten up the space and it often seems surreal that this is really our home. I had dreamt of an all white kitchen for years and years and I can’t believe we have lived here for three years.
I spent many years trying to figure out what to do with this all here. It is a HUGE blank wall right off our dining area and kiten, and last winter I built this Shiplap Display for it. I use it a lot for parties and seasonal displays. If you missed this post earlier this spring, I put together a more permanent display on our Shiplap Wall Display. You can download the free printables here and view how we built this space here.
Moving into the space we spend the most time, our family room! We recently gave this space a little update by painting the entire room white! You can read all about the decision and the process here. I feel like the white paint gave this space a completely new look and works much better with my design style. I’m so happy with it! This vignette will always be one of my favorite spaces in our home and my favorite furniture piece! This rustic carpenters bench is my absolute favorite.
Moving into our family room. I haven’t changed this space that much since I completed it soon after we move in. But I do tend to switch out decor accessories and throw pillows to keep it interesting. But since it’s been over three years since I did this space, I’m have a few more changes to make this year.
Moving to the last space in our downstairs, I’ll take you outside real quick. I redid this space for spring, but decided to just keep the same decor through the summer. If it isn’t broken don’t fix it, right?! But it will get much cozier for fall and winter!
Now, let’s head upstairs!
I’m sure you are all aware of our big master bedroom renovation happening right now. This is one of the first rooms that I have shown you each update as it happens and this is the current view. I have so many other fun things panned for this space! I hope to have this all competed by next year’s tour :)
Welcome to the only room in the house with a significant amount of color! This is my daughter’s very girlie room that she requested herself.
I love the whimsical yet fun look to this room and she adores it. It’s perfect place for her to hang out with friends and also get away from her two brothers!
In between my daughter and oldest son’s room is a shared jack-and-jill bathroom. I completed it this year with a gender neutral look using a farmhouse style.
I really love how this room finally came together!
Moving onto the third kid’s room, the neutral wood tone nursery! This was a fun room to put together, its a little different than the rest of the house which made it fun to put together.
One of our big projects this year was completing our guest bathroom! We gave a basic builder grade bathroom a completely new look with the help of the grid wall paper and more industrial touches.
One of the big projects on my list for this year is completing our bonus room! In the fall we gave it a huge makeover with a simple coat of dark moody paint! This year my goal is to finish the rest of the room and make it a much more organized and functional bonus room!
Thanks for taking a tour with us! I’m looking forward to seeing what the year brings!
Our First Home
We spent the first 6 years of our marriage in our first home. Our house started out as my husband’s bachelor pad and I slowly turned into a wonderful home to call our own and bring our first two children home to. It was a house that needed a lot of work but I had so much fun fixing it up over 6 years.What I learned along the way is that there will always be a to-do list, something that needs to be tweaked, built and rearranged and THAT is the beauty of making a house a home. It is a fun and beautiful journey that will never actually be finished.
So let’s take one final look at Our First Home.

Miss E’s Room (See Plank Wall Tutorial HERE)
(Sidenote: I was SO SO close to completely finishing this room, but I couldn’t justify working on two big projects that weren’t going to work in the new house. Although it was tempting. But here is how it looked when we left)
Gender Neutral Nursery….Oh the place where both my babies slept. I will miss this room.
Our first home. It’s kind of nice to have it all captured this way. What a wonderful home to spend the first six years of our marriage and welcome two children.
