At Home With Laura Mazurek

Lovely work areaWe are pleased to welcome Laura Mazurek to the blog today to share her lovely home with us!Love the shape of this potLovely office area"I live in the Texas hillcountry with my husband James and our three 'furry and feathered' babies, Violet (our dog), Bella (our cat) and Nico (our lovebird).  We became homeowners in April of 2011 and have absolutely been loving it ever since.  We kind of came upon this house by chance actually.  I decided one day that I wanted to 'pretend' to house shop, by making an appointment to see a house down the street from us that was for sale.  I had been browsing houses online for weeks and was just feeling really excited to kick start the process.  We instantly disliked the house we went to go look at, but I had just seen a beautiful looking house come up on the market a few days before.  I asked our realtor (who is also our friend) if we could go look at it and within an hour we had an appointment to see it.  The moment we both walked in the front door we knew we wanted to live there.  It just felt like home.  So, our pretend house hunting date turned into the real deal and a month later we got the keys to our first home!"

Such a folky:fun homeLove the folky detailsAt Home With Laura Mazurek"The things that instantly drew me into our house was the neutral earthy wall color, the arched doorways, the bay window and the fireplace.  I didn't grow up with a fireplace, so it has always been on my list of 'wants' in a home.  During the winter it is one of our favorite things!  I always dreamed I would paint my house with lots of color, but I am so drawn to the color of my walls I have not had the desire at all to change it.  My decor is very earthy, so it just mixes perfectly.  Most of the furniture and decor in our house are heirlooms from my parents home.  Since they are no longer with us it has been very important and comforting to me to have these things in my daily space.  My mom and I shared alot of the same aesthetics so it feels very natural."

Love the homemade tapestry above the fireplace"My favorite item in my space is the handmade quilt my mom made when she was in her 20's.  It's the big sun quilt hanging over the fireplace.  It's hand stitched and all of the fabrics in it I recognize from baby clothes she made me or curtains we used to have in the bathroom when I was little.  If there was ever a fire in our house I have always thought it would be what I would grab."

Pretty boho cornerLove everything in this spaceGreat cacti!"Both James and I run businesses out of our home, so the space is muli functioning.  I set up my studio for Roots and Feathers in one of the back bedrooms, and have my office next to our living room.  So James can be watching a movie while I'm 10 feet away writing a blog post.  He has his screenprinting set up for Skyline Fever in our garage, as well as using the space to write and record music.  Part of our constant rearranging has been to create a space that seamlessly flows for all that we use it for.  I kind of hope it never stops evolving!  We dream about adding a covered porch on the back and renovating the backyard with fun gardens and sitting areas.  I can't wait to see how this house grows."IMG_7064Succulent loveThank you so much for sharing your home with us, Laura! You can find more of Laura at Roots and Feathers or her online shop! xo. 

  • Although my personal style is quite different to this in many ways,I do like certain aspects, just I’d mix them up with other stuff. And I like this as it reminds me of MY parents too 🙂 I reackon this is what our family home could have looked like if we’d have bothered being stylish and tidy ;P
