First Friday Home Tour #10 Featuring Our Craftsman Cottage


Good morning! I have such a treat for you with this month's First Friday Home Tour. 

Today I'm welcoming Sonja whose home I spotted on Instagram.  Sonja's Instagram feed is the kind that makes you stop in your tracks and stare!!  Her gorgeous home caught my eye quickly because it is the perfect Craftsman style cottage loaded with beautiful details.

Sonya and her husband, Ronnie, were high school sweethearts and have been married for 27 years. They studied and planned before building this house in 2012.  It is meant to be their forever home with careful thought given to what might be needed as time passes.

When you enter in the house you immediately see beautiful woodwork along the walls and the ceiling too. This was all completed by Sonja and Ronnie.  They are true DIYers who enjoy design, planning, and construction. This is not the first project for this ambitious couple!

Sonja chose all the lighting from Rejuvenation. I love the schoolhouse style lights mixed with the Craftsman style woodwork. Perfect, don't you think?

This room just makes me swoon!
 The monogram on the chair and that plate rack with the Spode Woodland collection is amazing!

Sonja is a fabulous decorator. I believe she has the found the perfect balance of space and furnishings to make the house feel cozy yet open and comfortable.   Don't you love the soft colors?  This master bedroom seems so restful and inviting.

This house is all about the details...
I spy beadboard in the shelves and look at the chunky pulls and knobs on the Shaker cabinets. Perfect!
