The House Tour!

I'm back today from a quick work trip to San Francisco. It's good to be home for a few days before I head to Baton Rouge next week. I'm barely spending any time in this new place of ours! Without any further ado, here's the much-anticipated house tour! Consider these the "befores."

The view from the street. The house is on a great corner lot and the landscaping is really mature. It all needs a good trimming, and the house needs some washing...but other than that we're going to leave it be for the time being.
Our back deck. It's roomy with plenty of space for our new grill and lots of chairs! We had 14 people over the weekend we moved in and there was more than enough room on the deck for everyone.

When you walk in through the front door you're in the formal Living Room/Dining Room. It's a generous room for a 50s ranch. Long and narrow with two great windows!
Here's our sweet little Kitchen. Check out the awesome floral wallpaper! (In case you didn't catch the sarcasm through the type, it was there.)
This gives you a better idea of the wallpaper expanse.
The Den is the only carpeted room in the house. We're planning on using it as our TV room.
Check out the teeny tiny half bath off the Den. It's the actual size of a phone booth, which is pretty funny!
This is the bedroom we're planning to use as our Master Bedroom. Not too spacious, but just big enough!
This is one of our Guest Bedrooms. I'm not sure how well it will show in the photos, but it's painted in tone on tone pink stripes, like a Victoria's Secret shopping bag. Extra classy!
And this is Guest Bedroom number 2!
This is the very best part of the whole house tour. That's why I saved it for last! This is our Bathroom. Grey and White original tile, grey tub and sink, and awesome wallpaper! 
I hope you've enjoyed the tour!


  1. very nice house girlie!! cant wait to come and visit and see it

  2. What a great house, Kendall!
    That's exactly what is recommended -- a house with great bones that hasn't already been "re-done" so you can get it how YOU want it.
    Yay! So happy for you.

  3. Great tour Kendall! Your wallpaper is to die for....literally! This will be so much fun to see what you do with it all: very exciting for all of us.

  4. Ahh yes, the infamous floral wallpaper! I remember it well...we had peach with yellow and white flowers. It made quite the statement! I know the after photos will be magazine worthy! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the place. Congratulations!
