Lakewood Home Tour Recap

Hey guys! I recently went to the Lakewood Home Tour here in Dallas a few weeks back and wanted to share a couple homes with you I fell in love with. This was my second home tour I've been on here in Dallas, the first one was the Swiss Ave Home Tour I went to earlier this year. Comparing the two, I felt the Swiss Ave Home Tour had some pretty amazing and historical homes that really blew me away inside and out. There were a couple on this tour I'd love to share with you.

The first one is a ranch style home that the current homeowners purchased in 2011 and since have completely remodeled both the interior and exterior. I absolutely love the natural elements to the home and the simplicity. I think what makes this home is the backyard courtyard area.

{Love the rock edging}

{Great dining chairs from Timothy Oulton}

{Love the natural elements of the wood stump and coffee table}

{Great display of succulents}

{Simple display with pasta}

{To the right on the console you'll notice a vintage typewriter}

{Great cowhide rug, but I'd hate to spill anything}

{My favorite part of the house}

{Now you know what to do with your empty wine bottles}

{Seating outside}

I thought this was a great and inexpensive decorative idea for a child's room. Under each letter is a painted canvas with a wooden letter glued to the center of the canvas. Super creative and something you can totally customize with colors, etc. Love it!

{Love the colored glass}

This is a great rendition of a traditional farmhouse with a modern twist! Super quaint, but missing a few trees. Still one of my favorites. The inside was super eclectic and I didn't want to leave because of the outdoor screened in porch upstairs. I wanted to just curl up with a book and take a nap. Ahhhh...what a nice room to have.

Darling little nursery with an aquatic theme. Yet again, a simple and inexpensive way to make an art piece. The art above the crib is actually made of FELT! Yes, felt. Just cut and glue. How cool is that!!

Hope you enjoyed part of the tour as much as I did! Can't wait to see what's next on the calendar. It's always fun to take a sneak peek to see how others live and get ideas. These home tours are kinda strange in the fact that people open up their homes to total strangers like myself:)  I'm not sure I could do it. I give them props!

What idea or house did you like the best?? Hope you have a great weekend!!
