Eat-In Kitchen Formal Dining Room Entryway Progress Formal Living Room Office Den 41 Comments Jackie Keuthan 8 years ago Reply Dear Amy, I love your wonderful style of decorating! It is wonderful how your basics are neutral and you add exciting, vibrant colors in accessories. I love that you are using your old dining table as a desk, what a great piece. I have enjoyed veiwing your photos! Look forward to seeing more of your fabulous gift of creating! Thanks for sharing.. Krista @thehappyhousie 8 years ago Reply Amy! I love your home!! You are a seriously talented lady! I love how you use so much colour but balance it perfectly with natural and rustic tones as well as white. Such a warm and welcoming mix! Awesome job on your home:) Krista Alana in Canada 8 years ago Reply Visiting from Hooked on Houses. Love your commitment to texture–so great! I have a slightly more masculine style, too, and I love how you have worked it all in. It took me a while before I realised your colours were red and green–that’s a good thing! I love the combination but I’m scared of it, myself. Always afraid it will look too Christmasy. Not yours though! You do it well. Elizabeth 8 years ago Reply I’m so glad I found your blog! I love your style, I am about to redecorate and you have given me so many ideas. I especially love the green and white pattern behind your bookshelves. Is that fabric or wallpaper? Elizabeth Daisy @ Henrietta and Clementine 8 years ago Reply I just found your blog! I am in love with your style! I especially love your big wooden table. Suzanne of Simply Suzannes at Home 8 years ago Reply I’m new to your blog, and fell hooked when I saw photos of your warm and comfortable home. Beautiful! Laura 8 years ago Reply Hi there! Fellow Fort Worth girl here…I am looking for a cream colored couch exactly like the one in your living room…would you mind pointing me in the right direction? Thanks so much! Vicky 8 years ago Reply Love your front porch. I have same yellow ikat fabric as toss pillows in my family room. Found em at TJMaxx… but I want more! Can sew if I find the fabric. Do you know the name? Also like the tan geo print you paired with them. Name of pattern? Thanks! The Blissful Bee Post Author 8 years ago Reply Hi Vicky! I actually found the pillows at Garden Ridge. I’m not sure on the pattern name. The tan is a geometric trellis of some sort. I’m sure you can find something similar in a Waverly print maybe at Joann’s or something!

Thanks, Patty Lee 7 years ago Reply What a gorgeous home, it looks relaxed but interesting. I love the mix of textures and patterns. I lived in Borneo for 8 years, this is where the Ikat design originates, it is in all their old textiles. I love how this traditional pattern has been given a modern twist. I will now go and take a look at your previous house. I love your website by the way and photos. I am going to hopefully get a new camera for Christmas so I can take shots for my blog do you mind if I ask what camera are you using to get the last 5 or 6 shots in the post?

Absolutely beautiful!! Pat 7 years ago Reply I love it! Your home is so warm and welcoming. xo Pat The Blissful Bee Post Author 7 years ago Reply Aw thanks so much Pat!! Lee Caroline - A World of Inspiration 7 years ago Reply I am still drooling over your images, would it be at all possible to tell me what settings you used for the last couple of images. I am still having trouble with my DSLR not knowing anything and having to still use the auto setting which is not giving me the images I quite want. The light is so good in yours, I guess I need to know the lens too. I have a 35mm and I have the bigger kit lens that came with the Nikon. My problem is getting the right light. Lee The Blissful Bee Post Author 7 years ago Reply Hi Lee! I use a Canon Mark 5D with a 50 mm lens. A 35 mm lens won’t give you the same depth of field as the 50mm, but you should still be able to capture some good lighting. I usually shoot with the lights off and windows open. I also shoot overexposed so the photo is nice and bright! I believe my ISO is on auto or maybe 100? Hope this helps!! xo, amy Helen 7 years ago Reply I really like your sense of style and the way you put everything together. I really like your neutral wall color … What color did you use? Thank you helen The Blissful Bee Post Author 7 years ago Reply Thank you Helen! We are actually renting, so I’m not sure what the wall color is. I’m sorry! I’ll have to do some research to see if I can find a similar color;) Lauren @ Mom Home Guide 7 years ago Reply Beautiful home!

Diann 7 years ago Reply You have a lovely home. I really love your decorating style. I see you’re renting and don’t know the paint color, could you tell me if it is a tan or a grey shade?
