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."
Thanks so much for sharing, Erin! You can find more of Erin on Instagram and Etsy and be sure to check out Band of Horses if you haven't already. xo.

Love the house. You did such a great job decorating i. Do you remember the paint color on the wall?
Erin, my mom sent me this link and told me i had to check out your amazing home! Wow it is so beautiful and inspiring!
Where are the shelves from that house the records and player? I’ve been looking for something with wood and metal. Loved it!
I just won a weaving from her and it literally made my month 🙂 Big surprise she has a great house too!! Such talent in one little lady!
It would be so awesome if your “at home” series was punctuated with shopping links on various items in the photos, even if it’s just “paris flea market.” As a clueless decorating newb, would love to know where these folks shop!
Thanks for the lovely home features. Def a fave on your blog so far!
I enjoy this feature of your blog, but could you show us what the front of the homes look like? I am always curious about what type of home it is.
I love your home decor! Where is the cart from that you’re using for record storage? It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for.
Thank you so much Lindsay!!!
What a sweet compliment. Thank you so much! Xo
Hello!! The table is from World Market, white chairs are from France & son and the sideboard is vintage 😉 thank you!!!
I wish I could remember the exact color! It was sort of a last minute choice… But I do know that it came from Lowes if that helps 😉
Thank you thank you!!! And I will pass that on to my husband 😉 xo
Thank you so much!!! I appreciate your kind words ! Xo
This is probably my favorite home tour you’ve done to date – love absolutely everything about it. Dreaming of owning a home some day..!
LOVE absolutely everything about your home!

Beautiful home. This is definitely someone who knows and appreciates their own style..
Well curated too. I just kept thinking. about how everything is so beautiful and simple…
Most importantly, it feels like a HOME.
I’ve always wanted a hanging chair! Is it hard to install?
Where was the hanging chair in the kitchen from? LOVE IT!
The house I grew up in during the 1980s actually had that yellow loveseat.
