Reader’s home – Lucy’s four walls and a roof

Posted on Fri, 3 Feb 2012 by KiM

This reader’s home belongs to Lucy, and here’s what she had to say about it: We’ve been living in this house for 5 years. It had lots of, shall we say, ‘deferred maintenance’ when we moved in – all hidden under layers of cream paint. It’s gone from being a vanilla ice-cream-colored box filled with IKEA furniture that we bought in a single weekend (long story – we moved from England and had to start from scratch) through the arrival of our two kids, countless variations of layout and wall color, to finally becoming a family home. I blogged about the process (and other design dilemmas) at fourwallsandaroof.comThe most newly remodelled part of the house is the kitchen, powder room, dining room and family room. Love the mid-century vibe in the newly done rooms. Great job Lucy! (Some photos by Chris Gaede)

Wow! That is an incredibly beautiful home. I love how bright the home is and the nursery is stunning!

Ryan says:

Awesome kitchen, congrats.

Thank you so much for the kind comments.

Molly and Cate – the sectional is from Bimma Loft in San Francisco.
Cate – the pillowcases are from Bed, Bath and Beyond I believe. They'r e ancient but have held up well!


Cata says:

It's beautiful but I wouldn't want to be a kid in this house. Sorry.

The entire house looks like a house of my dream, especially the bedroom. It is so full of light, freshness and tenderness. I guess I could sleep there 24/7 🙂
