At Home With Kelly Moore Clark

At Home With Kelly Moore Clark via A Beautiful MessWe are happy to welcome our pal Kelly Moore Clark to the blog today to share her lovely home with us! Love the photos above the bedLove the pops of yellow in this room"When we first bought our home almost 3 years ago, it was very very plain.  Everything was basic and needed updating, which was really exciting to me!  I would rather start with nothing and make it the way I want than move into a home someone else renovated.

When we began, there were about 8 different shades of wood throughout the house, cabinets, floors, ceiling, walls, it was pretty bad.  We repainted every surface in the house except the wood floors.  It was amazing how much more open, fresh and inviting the rooms became once we gave everything a coat of fresh paint and painted all the mismatched woods a beautiful white.  Our home isn't very large, a modest 1800sq ft.  It's just big enough that we don't feel crowded, but small enough that we are always close to each other.  When it comes to my decorating style, I don't really know what I'd call it.  I like modern, farmhouse, vintage and eclectic, and my house is a hodgepodge of all of these styles.  Most of my walls are a fresh white or crisp grey color, and I throw pops of color in with art, furniture, rugs, etc.  I love having a home that feels comfortable. I've worked hard to create a space that encourages my girls to be creative and have fun!" Sweet nursery"I love our white painted brick on the fire place.  Everyone told me not to do it and that I would regret it, but I don't!  I do especially love my kitchen.  The cabinets were not that nice when we moved in.  I had the option to completely gut the kitchen and get new cabinets or try and paint the old ones.  I had always wanted to paint cabinets a fun color, so this was the perfect opportunity.  If I didn't like it, no big deal, I could rip them out later.  Good news….I LOVE THEM!!! I painted the top cabinets a mustard color and the bottom avocado.  It really made the space whimsical and fun to spend time in, which I do!   Also, we made our own concrete countertops.  This was such a fun project that me and my husband did together.  They give the space a industrial feel, nothing too fancy.  They were really inexpensive and are super durable.  I blogged the project if you'd like to see!" Fun dining and kitchen areas"I have a huge painting on my dining room wall of a multicolored cow painted on an old door.  I love that it has a rural, folk feel, but the cow is modern with hot pink and yellow accents.  I think it represents me perfectly.  I purchased this painting in the hills of the appalachian mountains years ago while photographing an out of town wedding.  At the time, the asking price for the piece was way out of my budget, but I just couldn't get it out of my mind, so before I left to come home, I stopped by the little store and purchased it.  It will always be special to me." Love this look for a kid's room or guest roomLove this shared space"We have 3 little girls, so to say that our home is "lived in" is an understatement.  We spend a lot of time at home!  Our kitchen, living area, and dining area are all one big open space, so I love that whether I'm cooking, working on a project at the table or relaxing on the couch, we can all be together." Book wallThank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us, Kelly. You can find more of Kelly over at her camera bag site or on Twitter or Facebook! xo.

  • I really would love to know where she got the hardware for her wood burning sstove… the shelf supports and the hooks on the side of the stove. Please let me know

  • So happy to see a “local” girl on here! I hope to photograph my home soon and submit. Your home looks lovely, Kelly!

  • I love the use of the cages as side-tables. I’d love to have a loft space to decorate and have fun with! Great visuals. xx

  • the bountiful ideas and the mixture of colors is a show of good talent and nice taste

  • i would love to know where that US map is from over the fire place! please let me know if you can.
    thanks in advance!

  • You guys always feature people I love! I have adored Kelly and her handbags since shortly after she launched her line and I loved seeing her house. I think my favorite room was the kitchen and the fun colors and large prints over the cabinets.

  • I love the lighting in the dining room! My husband and I have been looking for a similar lighting piece for our room but I can’t find fixtures like this anywhere. Is there anyway to find out where the one in this post came from? Thanks

  • This is lovely place. Her kid is so cute.

  • Is there any chance to find out how the U.S. map was made or where they got it? I’m looking to make a chalkboard with U.S. map stenciled out and this looks exactly like what I want to do!

  • this is my favorite ‘at-home-with…’ yet!!! love EVERYthing about her house! thanks so much for sharing 🙂

  • I absolutely love this! Such a beautiful home, it looks so exciting yet cosy at the same time. Perfect! I love every detail 🙂 x

  • I love all the gray and yellow. That’s a color combo I attempted when I moved in to my first place, but I could never quite find the right pieces. Now I’m inspired to try it again!

  • It’s hard to combine vintage with fresh, colourful and modern without something looking out of place but this house is perfect!

  • I think this is my favourite yet!! Love the details. That kitchen is a creative space all on its own. Perfect.

  • Wow – what an inspiring home! That kid’s room is to DIE for!

    Love,

  • Une maison pleine d’amour et de fraîcheurs ! Bravo !
    J’aurais toutefois une question aux propriétaires épatants, quel nom porte le fauteuil vert près de la cheminée ? J’adore !

  • The kids bookshelves are my favorite thing, other than the cabinet colors (and the cow).. I saw shelves like that on Pinterest a while back and have loved them ever since. Maybe we need to use the idea ourselves!

  • I love her USA picture on the wall!

  • Such an amazing house! I love it!
    Any idea where to find the globe lights as in her girls’ room with the white cord. The only ones I can manage to find are more backyard ones with green cords.

  • I love, love, LOVE this space! I am especially inspired by the large photos in the kitchen, lighting choices and the U.S. map above the fireplace.

    I have trouble deciding what to put on top of my cabinets in my kitchen, so regarding the photos in the kitchen, I might use that idea.

    Can’t wait to check out and learn more about you and your home via your blog.

  • Beautiful beautiful home! I love the kids’ rooms! Such a darling bookshelf! And that kitchen is gorgeous. Wowza.

    Hi from France! 🙂

  • This is one of my fave home features…love the decor and combo of farmhouse + modern + vintage – very nice balance.

    Thanks for featuring.

  • That little girl is soooo cute!!!

  • I love the pictures over the bed and the shelf over the fireplace. Beautiful home.
    I have a teeny kitchen in my 1000 ft house and I am inspired to make the most of the space and get my paint brushes out.

  • Beautiful home! But 1800 sq ft is not small, in the rest of the world that is a big house!

  • I love the vintage pieces and overall vintage style of this house. I love picking up knick knacks from my travels from antique shops. It adds so much character and detail to the home!

  • GORGEOUS home! I’m struggling to find the perfect shade of yellow for my kitchen. I would love to know the colors that were used on the cabinets!

  • Hey Kari,
    I think that standard really depends on where you live! Here in Missouri 1800 would be considered a smaller family size home also. Obviously it’s different in more expensive/populated areas of the country.

    elsie

  • Beautiful home, love the gray walls. I’ve been searching for the perfect gray, not too blue/green/purple…any chance you can share your shade? 🙂

  • Are you kidding me a MODEST 1800 sq feet?! I hope she never visits the rest of the world. She may in for a rude awakening.

  • Love this home! It’s so colorful, feminin, flowery and at the same time looks elegant!

    Thanks for the inspiration and love from Europe,

    Thanks so much! elsie

  • Out of all of the home tours you’ve shared on your blog, this one has to be my favorite. It’s the home I can see myself living in. For starters, I love the wooden floors, and the ‘modern, farmhouse, vintage and eclectic’ styles all together just work perfectly. I like the simple wall colors that allow the items around the home to pop with their pretty colors. Love this!

  • One of the most beautiful houses that you’ve showed us so far! That fire place is so beautiful! And the way the’ve displayed the children books… so sweet!

  • I. WANT. EVERYTHING! What a gorgeous house. I especially love the floral pillow and the map of the US!

  • Its a lovely home ! I especially love the girls rooms

    www.snappingbeautiful.blogspot.com

  • Such a comfy looking home. I love the cow painting and the cafe lights strung around. Very sweet.

    I had to giggle when she said, “Our home isn’t very large, a modest 1800sq ft.” It looks big (considering I live in maybe 800 sq ft) but I’m sure it feels little with so many little people running around. 🙂

  • I love Kelly’s house- I’ve been following her house projects for awhile and even used her tutorial to help make our very own concrete countertops!! 🙂

  • I love the bookshelf with all the story book covers displayed. It’s so homey and it adds so much color to the room. I also like that it can be changed by moving the books around, adding/removing story books and growing more mature as the girls do. How awesome!

    I just discovered this blog yesterday and suffice to say I am in love.

  • Oh, I absolutely love your style. My favorite piece has to be the lights over the girl’s beds. That is so lovely and cozy. And your kitchen is amazing!!

  • Such a beautiful home, I wish I lived there. I especially love how they’ve hung the pictures above the bed, it’s just a nice effect for the room 🙂

  • i love checking out the series, especially now that we’re moving next week! gives me so much great inspiration!

  • Grey + Mustard… love it!

    The bookself of the kid room is what i want for my son!

  • Wow wow wow !!! Gorgeous home ! One of my faves soooooo far !!

    Beautiful !!

    I would love to have our place featured here too. Any ideas on how to submit to your AT HOME series?

    I am just loving it !!!

    Cheers !!
    Lynne xx

  • i really love the room with the 2 cabin-style twin beds. it seems like everybody gets their children queen beds now, which are huge! those look perfect for little kiddos.
