Beautiful Homes of Instagram

Outside Details: We got lucky with the stone and brick that was already picked out before we were under contract.  The brick is an old Chicago style, with tumbled and recycled features.  We absolutely love the character it brings to the outside of our home.  We learned later, that this brick is an upgrade and something the builder doesn’t normally use.  Many of the bricks have old writing and letters from previous places and use… I love that it tells a story!  There’s paint and small traces of details from where they once were before they were torn down and repurposed.  I love to walk around the outside and take note of the unique details.  The stone is a mix of warm gray, cream and gold tones.  I love how it flows with our brick.

DIY Scrabble Art Gallery
 Here’s what Alicia has to say about her popular Scrabble art gallery wall: “My favorite and most popular gallery wall amongst my loyal followers is this scrabble art gallery. Incorporating special family dates, numbers and pictures was my vision for this wall. I decided to keep it neutral to flow with the adjoining space; I just love how it turned out!  The burning question I’ve seen with this viral wall is what do the 5 dates mean?  I’m happy to satisfy your curiosity and share them!  From top to bottom…  Our first (blind date), the day he proposed, our wedding date and the birth of our two children!” You can get more details here.
