Today we are so excited to welcome Erin Barrett to ABM as she shares her amazing home with us! Emma and I visited last winter and I asked her to share her home with you about five seconds after we walked through the door. It's incredibly cozy and well curated. You're going to LOVE this space!
"This is the first home that my husband Creighton and I ever owned. We were about six months pregnant with our daughter, Sunny, when we started shopping around for a house. Creighton is the drummer for Band of Horses and just so happened to be heavily touring during the time most of the house shopping took place, but as soon as I stepped foot in the door, I knew it was perfect for us. It was an older home that had recently been redone, but the best part was the fact that it was in our favorite neighborhood.
"I would definitely say that I am drawn to a midcentury type of decor, but I like to throw in different elements to keep things interesting. There will never be a lack of indoor plants in any of my homes… There is definitely a crazy plant lady thing starting to happen inside of me.
"The 12' ceilings and abundance of natural light are easily the best features in the home. I love the openness of the living room and dining room as soon as you enter the house. It has been a great place for entertaining friends and family.
"We recently took down a good bit of the cabinet space in the kitchen and replaced it with some open shelving and a TON of subway tile. It really added a lot of character to the kitchen and made for a brighter, more inspiring place to cook.
"My sweet husband surprised me a couple of Christmases ago with the most amazing pallet headboard. The fact that it reaches all the way to the ceiling above the bed makes it an even more dramatic and beautiful addition to the bedroom.
"After about two years in our home, we added on a door from the master bedroom leading out onto a deck and patio that we had built. The extra outdoor space has definitely been the best investment that we made in our home. So many fun parties, bbqs and mornings with coffee have taken place there."
