It’s time for Field Trip Friday with Julie from Lilacs & Longhorns. You will love her taste, style and her blog! Not to mention she is one of the nicest people I know. Take it away Julie!
Hi, I’m Julie from the blog, Lilacs & Longhorns.
I’m so happy to be here at Meegan’s sharing my home tour today!
When Meegan asked me to take you on a tour of my home it was a no-brainer. Meegan is so sweet and creative and I love her blog!
I’m thrilled to invite you in — welcome to my home!
You’ll find that our house is a mix of styles.
I like traditional and cottage/farmhouse with a little bit of French country thrown in. My husband is Texan all the way. He loves leather, cowhide and stained wood.
We have lived here for 12 years and I think it has taken me just as long to figure out how to blend our tastes and come up with “our” style but I think I have finally figured it out!
Adding elements that appeal to both of us is not always easy but I find that when I consider both of our tastes I like the results even better than if I only considered my own.
Besides blending styles, I had to find a way to incorporate family pieces in to our home.
Many of our antiques came from my husband’s grandmother. I have integrated them in with the pieces we have purchased on our own and things I have collected from yard sales and Craig’s list. I have painted some and left others alone.
Our home is a blend of leather and stained woods (his favorites) as well as fabrics and finishes I love.
The living room and kitchen are open to one another. I absolutely love this when we are entertaining family and friends.
When I’m working in the kitchen I am never all by myself.
It was also really nice when the kids were little and were playing in the living room. I could keep my eye on everything even when doing dishes.
Here’s a very small peek at my son’s room.
It’s undergoing a very slow makeover as well! (You might say I have “decorating ADD”! )
When we got my daughter’s new bed we moved the queen in to my son’s room. I’m planning to paint and do some other DIY’s to bring his room together. I’m so anxious to make his room in to something special!
Thank you so much for touring my home today! And, thank you Meegan, for inviting me to join you at your beautiful blog. It’s been so much fun making myself at home here today!
Please stop by my blog and leave me a comment if you get a chance. I would love to hear from you!
Thanks SO MUCH, for joining us for Field Trip Friday, Julie!!
Come back again next week for another field trip. This time with Jeanette from Country Design Style.
