Blogger Home Tour - Down to Earth Style

Welcome to the Blogger Home Tour series.
Featuring some of the finest home on tour in Blogland.


One of the cutest blogs out there belongs to Holly from Down to Earth Style,
She is currently renting her home in Virginia, but this is no ordinary rental, she has made this house magazine worthy.
Beautiful decor, a genius with woodworking tools, easy peasy recipes.  Her blog is addictive!

So let us do what we do best.....snoop around!

Here is a little bonus to make this tour a bit easier ....... the blueprints to the house.

 We'll start with the livingroom.

Isn't this room stunning!
Here is a tutorial on the  Life is Beautiful artwork. 
I can so see myself relaxing with a cup of tea in this room.....that's what makes my life beautiful!

 Here's a peek at three of my favourite rooms.
The kitchen, dining room and family.
Oh hello must be the welcoming committee!

Let's wonder around the kitchen and all the neat stuff here.

The newest change to this room....a chalkboard/shelf.

The awesome family room.
Every time I am visiting her blog, I study all the details to get some idea.
Love everything about this comfy room.
The pictures below are an assortment of looks she has had with this room since moving in.

Take the holiday tour here.

 Her recent pride and joy is the newly renovated shabby style master bedroom.
A handcrafted corrugated metal roofing cool is that!
You will have to check out the before and after.
I can tell you that the before was just as pretty as the after!

Love how this TV corner is decorated.
So simple, I love it.  I may have to use this idea in my bedroom....never know how to decorate the TV area.

Awesome pillows.  Details of the headboard.
This girl is brilliant, I could never come up with an idea like this!
This beautiful room was featured on CNN Living - congrats Holly! 

What I love so much about her blog is the creative DIY projects.
Her tutorial are very detailed and easy to follow.   She should be teaching Woodshop 101 somewhere!
Here are just a few.

I enjoy her blog so much.  Always look forward to new post and what new thing she has created.
Holly and her family are on the lookout for a new home to purchase....can't wait for those before and afters!
