At Home With Sarah Gibson in Dayton, Ohio

At Home with Sarah GibsonChairs/Vintage.

Happy NYE! We’re so excited to share Sarah Gibson’s beautiful home with you today. Her style is simple and sleek and we love the cozy vibes throughout the space. The hunter green walls and those amazing dining room chairs really made us swoon! Ready to see more?

Dining roomBright kitchen“I live with my husband, Kalyn, and our giant schnauzer, Finn. We purchased this home as a fixer upper and completed the majority of the construction and renovation ourselves. We’ve owned the home for around 3 years now, but this will be our second year living here. We fell in love with the character and charm of the old house (built in the early 1900s), but mostly the opportunity to make it our own. As a foreclosure, it was really one of the few homes that fit our budget.

White kitchen“I love spending time in the kitchen. It’s an open concept space joined with the dining room and we spend a lot of time there. The majority of our budget went into this room, and I’m so happy with the transformation! We love cooking, sharing meals and entertaining friends and family here. This room also has the best lighting! In addition to the natural light, Kalyn added a ton of recessed light fixtures and everything is on a dimmer (even the pendants), so it’s a really versatile environment at any time of day.

Living roomSarah GibsonGuest bedroomDecor detailsI’m a big fan of finding vintage pieces to incorporate into our home. Those are usually the items that are the most special. My favorite vintage pieces include: the dining chairs, sideboard, and night stands (in both the master and guest rooms). My favorite DIYs would be the dining chairs, master bedroom night stands and this gallery light.

“This is our second year living in our home. It continues to change and evolve. Looking back at old images, it’s difficult to remember the condition in which we purchased the house. It certainly feels more “lived in” as we accumulate things that make us happy…and the addition of a dog to our family (who constantly messes things up). I’ll never have clean windows as long as Finn is around, at least the lower half.”

Thanks for sharing, Sarah! You can find more of Sarah via Room for Tuesday and on Instagram.

  • Beautiful! Love the green walls.
    What’s the name and brand of paint?

  • What is the name of the paint colour in the dining room?? It is the perfect shade!

    • Any chance I could get the name of the paint color in the dinning room? I’ve been searching for a green like this for years!

  • Thanks, Michelle! They’re from this company: … but I purchased them about 4 years ago.

  • It’s actually a really inexpensive DIY I found here:

  • Thank you, Camille! It was a tricky gallery wall, but I think it turned out well. xo

  • Hi Emily, I ordered the artwork through the design firm I work for. It’s made to order. If you want details, feel free to email me!

  • Hi Mag, I ordered the artwork through the design firm I work for. It’s made to order. If you want details, feel free to email me!

  • Hi Jo, two of the hooks came from CB2 (unfortunately they’re no longer available), one came from HomeGoods, and the last one is vintage. They were all different colors, so I spray painted them black.

  • Thanks so much, Lindy! Sometimes I wonder who owned the chairs before I found them; they might regret it now. Haha!

  • Seriously so beautiful! My dream home, truly. I can’t stop scrolling through the pictures!

  • Oh my god. I just wanna cry. Its so beautiful <3 I want all of this!

  • Love those circle mirrors! Can you share where they are from? I have been on the look out for quite some time now 🙂

  • Really inspiring home!
    I love the light in all rooms, everything seems so simple, yet so chic.

  • What a beautiful home you have created! It is elegant in it’s simplicity as well as warm and welcoming. Love the vintage and modern cohabiting so stylishly, and you must be very proud that you did most of the work yourself. Bravo!

    PS – I had chairs like the ones in your dining room I had purchased new 35 years ago that was paired with a Scandinavian teak dining table. I sure wish I had them now!

  • The rugs in this house are JUST beautiful. If you know where they’re from it would be much appreciated. I want some more rugs so badly! This is gorgeous.

  • Thank you, Lyndsey! The starburst light fixture is Visual Comfort; you can find it here:

  • Thanks Valerie! I’m excited for Dayton right now… there are a lot of great things happening in our little city! xo

  • Thank you, Rachel! They’re one of my favorite things we own. I can’t believe I scored them for under $10 a piece. xo

  • Thanks so much for the feature and for the amazing compliment!! What an honor. xo, Sarah

  • What a beautiful home!! Thankyou for sharing all this inspiration! xFreyas Fashion Chapter

  • I love this post! Their style really matches my own aesthetic — I loooove the hunter green and dark wood accents. Beautiful!

  • I love their house, I am a fan of Room for Tuesday! So happy the you guys are featuring them!

  • This house is really gorgeous. Love the emerald walls!

    I have to say, I’ve been a little disappointed at the direction of this series. It’s my absolute favorite series on ABM and I have loved so many of the home tours. Since being brought back, they’ve been going in a more chic direction (which is my polite way of saying fancy/expensive/out of reach). The inspiration is nice, but for a lot of us, this is not even close to attainable. Sometimes it’s nice to be inspired by things within our own personal reach, too! I remember LOVING Andrea Duclos’ home tour because I was living in Florida at the time and could really feel all the inspiration of her space, and it was a very affordable accomplishment at the same time. Definitely not trying to be a hater because I love all the entries in the series! I would just love to see a little more diversity in terms of the kinds of style that can be accomplished “on a budget,” if you know what I mean.

    Anyways, thanks for bringing this series back!

  • I love this house so much!! It seems to have just the right amount and style of everything without being overwhelming in the slightest!

  • I love your tv space! It is so much harder than it looks to get photos perfectly set around a tv.

  • What a beautiful home! I especially love the dining room chairs–never did I think that style could look so chic.

  • It’s Petal Pusher (Gold) from Hygge & West. I have seen it a number of places and also love it. I need a wall of this in my home.

  • Love your home! I also live in Dayton & it is refreshing to have a home in Dayton featured.

  • I love how she includes 60s pieces into her interior style, and I love the colours she uses!

  • Obsessed with this home tour! Thank you so much for sharing. I can’t wait to add some of these ideas to my new place!

  • This is so lovely. We have so many friends located in Dayton! Great home. That green wall is to die for!

  • What a beautiful home! Every detail is expertly style. Love it!

  • This whole house is so pretty. I really like the starburst light in bedroom! Can I ask where that’s from?
