Home Tour – Meet Jordan + Lianne

Oh boy do I have a fabulous home tour for you today! Behold the beauty of Jordan and Lianne Philips’ home. Every detail has been tended to and it’s the perfect balance of style and comfort. I mean, don’t you want to move in tomorrow?

Before I show you the photos, I want to share a little bit about this wonderful couple. You see, they have quite the eye for all things beautiful. Jordan and Lianne run an incredibly successful photo studio called Jolie Photographie. Take a peek at their website, and you”ll be in awe of all the pretty photos. They don’t just do things well, they do things perfect. I think this trait is reflected in their home….enjoy!

New office

A few of my favorite things (because I could really go on forever)…

  • The yellow Pottery Barn rug in the office. It’s the perfect pop of color!
  • The white antique furniture in the bedroom – such a relaxing space.
  • The wood boxes hung on the living room wall. Such a statement and handy too.
  • The mix of old and new – creates a fun, unexpected vibe.

I’m going to see if Jordan and Lianne would be willing to stop by the blog and say a few things about the space they’ve created. It’s truly a labor of love and an inspired place!

Dining Room Progress

As I said yesterday, I spent the weekend painting our dining room. It was just me, my paintbrush and I had a little college football on in the background (Go Ducks!). I must have painted at an intense pace because I was soooore the next day.

Anyway, as you guys already know, I chose a warm grey-blue for the color. It was a tough choice and I’m really happy with the color I landed on, which is Olympic’s Quil. I’m a fan…

Below are a few pics I snapped before I brought in all the painting gear, and then just to keep it real, I snapped some right after I finished, as it’s dark outside and I clearly had not totally cleaned the space. Again, just wanted to give you the “real” feel for how the room looks now – cluttered with stuff.
