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?
“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.
“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.
“I’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.”
