First Friday Home Tour #6 Featuring Blue Sky at Home


Welcome to July and Welcome to the First Friday Home Tour feature for this month.

Today we are welcoming Carol from Bluesky at Home. I've had the pleasure of being in her home for a cooking class and it is stunning! I know you'll enjoy  this home tour.  
Carol is going to do the talking to tell you about her home.


I am so excited to share a tour of a few rooms from our home today with you at Poofing the Pillows. Stacey is one of my favorite Lone Star Sisters and I was thrilled when she asked me to participate in this month’s home tour feature.

Let’s start with my favorite room in the house ~ my kitchen. This is where I spend the majority of my day: cooking, writing, testing recipes, even painting and DIY takes place here. I spent most of my efforts and time planning this room.

Our kitchen and living room are basically one big area ~ we definitely have an open concept.
I love the colors and arrangement. I’m never out of the action when I’m in the kitchen.

Sweet Shark’s favorite room is his bar ~ which I describe as the coolest bar in Texas. 
It’s not a man cave, but he spends time in there relaxing, reading and watching golf.

Our bedroom is a soothing area with a beautiful view of the backyard and pool. 
The colors from the rest of the house continue in here.

I love our master bathroom. it was also a room that we gutted during the remodel. The lighting and the bathtub (which unfortunately, I don’t use enough.) are my favorite things about it.

I hope you enjoy touring our favorite rooms and the remodeling we did. I loved every bit of this process and I still love adding accessories, moving things and around and just living here.

Love your beautiful home! I have a double slipper tub in our master bath and just love it, it was my gift to me after fifteen months of renovation lol. I definitely use it more in the winter then the summer though!

I love this home, it's gorgeous and that tub is got all of us envious in blogland.
