I filmed this on a random Sunday when it was actually sunny here in Missouri (it’s been rainy and cloudy a lot lately). It’s not perfect and it’s really long, but I’m so happy I got to film this little time capsule of our home. I hope you enjoy it!
Below, I’m going to link as many of the furniture and decor items (including DIYs) as I can find so you can “shop my house” if you’re interested.

DIY link: A-Frame Tent DIY. The rest of the projects were featured in our book.
One of the goals I had for our home is for it to be a place where our family congregates and spends time together. That sometimes means larger gatherings, and it sometimes means quality time with just me, my husband, and our pups.

Thanks so much for reading/watching! Below you’ll see a number of questions from readers over the years, I’ve tried to answer as many as possible! xo. Elsie
P.S. You can watch my most recent video home tour here.
It’s fascinating to see someone’s style evolve through the years! Although I love your current home and can not wait for the decor in your next home, the mid century modern look is my personal favorite. 💛 Are there any key items you’ve kept from the first house that you still decorate with?
Hi! We have a hanging wicker chair that has been in every single house (it’s coming with us!)
I like the blog, your decorating styles are amazing. I love the home, Thanks for sharing your home tour and explaining about your company.
Thanks for sharing, Elsie! Always love visiting ABM for great home ideas.
Hahahahaha it sounds like your dad has the best sense of humor.
Hi, I love your house! Its so whimsical and lovely. I was hoping you could tell me where you got the white hanging terrariums? They are so perfect!
Awesome home tour! Your house is really beautiful (though I’m not surprised!). Love those pet portraits in the living room. Too cute! I totally know what you mean about quirky things in old houses. My house was built in 1863 + we have a small window at the top of our living room wall that goes into the upstairs/attic. Really random, but I *love* it! Quirky details in old homes are my favorite. They make it so special!
Beautiful home! Thanks for the tour. Where did you get the rug in your new dining room? Thanks!
I love the cozy space in your bedroom!
Does the sofa have a heavy chemical odour? We bought one last month and it still gives me a headache in less than 30 minutes 🙁
I spy a Charley Harper book!! I’m super impressed. Being from Cincinnati, we’re pretty proud of our Harper pieces around here!!
Love your house Elsie, and hope I can be as creative in decorating mine!
Hi! First off, love your blog and love the videos you all have been making, especially these video tours. They didn’t feel long, loved the detail and beautiful old house you have made do unique. You mentioned a back room on the second floor that was a guest room and ‘now we use one downstairs’ but didn’t include those 2 rooms in the video. Of course you are entitled to your privacy but I was just curious if you will ever show us those two last rooms? Love being inspired by your home and DIYs so was curious about those last spaces and how you decorate and use them 🙂 thanks for inviting us into your home, loved every minute of it! Bravo!
Could you please tell me about your couch. I am searching high and low for one very similar
Beautiful home! Great job on the video, and the cameo by Penny was a fun surprise. she is so cute and looks just like you!
Elsie, you´re sooooo cute!!
I really liked it that you added personal touches to your narrative, like the ghost story or Penny…
i cannot wait to buy one!
Your home is beautiful! I would love to know where you bought the metal basket that is in the (new) dining room.
LOVE your home!!
Thank you for the house tour! It’s so wonderful of you to ‘invite’ your fans in! Everything about where you live is inspirational – here’s to making my home as beautiful as yours! 🙂
Beautiful ! Makes me want to buy the book (and come over for tea 🙂 )
