House Tour: Out the Door

Our house is officially for sale!

Every spare minute over the past two weeks has been spent cleaning, decluttering, and styling our house--or sleeping. Since the photos went online, I have been sleeping like a zombie. 

Anyway, brace yourselves. This house tour includes photos of spaces you have never before seen in our house.

Our open concept living area.

A view from the front door. 

The dining area. I will not miss Griffin tipping his chair back near that railing to the basement...But you can get a glimpse of the microwave cart-turned-art cabinet there in the corner. It's not too fab in real life, but it works.

The kitchen. I will greatly miss the huge walk-in pantry in the center of this photo. And the bar between the living room and kitchen. We didn't have a ton of parties, but when we did it was the perfect spot for hors d'oeuvres.

Bela's bedroom. As done as it's going to get while we live here. The duvet cover is from Serena and Lily, the gold drapes are re-purposed from elsewhere in the house.

The kids' bathroom. Cheap-o art on the back of the toilet and a basket for washcloths. I think the rainbow stripe shower curtain is so fun.

Griff's bedroom. Again, duvet cover from Serena and Lily. The drapes here were re-purposed from elsewhere in the house; they got faded and have a cool bleached-out look to them that are perfect in this room.

The backyard. The field behind us has soy this year; last year it was corn. I wish that they'd alternate with sunflowers. Wouldn't that be pretty?!

The daylight window basement. Otherwise, unfinished and unloved. But a great place for all the thousands of toys.
The never-before-seen master bedroom.

Another shot, including the bath. How nice has an attached bathroom been.

The master bath.

First floor laundry. I don't think I can ever go back to having my washing machine in the basement.

Now I'm off to see what everyone else in blog-land has been doing this week while I crammed and napped. :)


  1. This house looks great! I'm hoping it sells fast for you

  2. Just one note, that is not daylight windows in the basement. That is an egresses window. A huge selling point so you'll want to make sure it says it.
    Also, I saw nothing about where this is located, the school district, etc.

    1. Good point about the window in the basement. The official listing by the realtor has a lot more information: Thank you for commenting! :)

  3. Looks wonderful Carrie! The paint color in the kitchen, it looks pale grey here, is nice. Wishing a quick sale for you!

  4. I think you did a great job of showing this as a warm and welcoming family home. Good luck with your sale. Did you pick any of the corn from last year :).

  5. Hi Carrie, First time stopping by! Your home is so pretty and I'm sure it will sell quickly:) The floor plan is open and your kitchen is lovely (an important sale point for the woman of the house!) It's such a pain listing a house .. especially with kids.



Thanks so much for commenting! I love to read what you have to say. ~Carrie
