Day Four: Dream Home Tour

Did I say this tour was going to take a super fun turn or what?! You can tell Cristi and her designer Lindy Allen of Four Chairs Furniture had a blast decorating the adorable playroom upstairs. Cristi refers to it as the "keiki" room (keiki is how you say kids in Hawaiian) because it has a Hawaii feel to it (surf board shelves, sea turtles, surf pillows, etc). Some of you eagle-eye readers might even recognize the nursery. I actually featured the little guy's room from their old house last year here. Glad to see the gorgeous turquoise crib is still taking center stage!

And the nursery bathroom! Get this...the claw foot tub actually came from the farm Cristi grew up on. Her parents used it out in the pasture to put the salt licks for the cows in. Seriously! Now it's refinished, looks gorgeous, and she will be bathing her children in it! LOVE. IT. The beautiful tile here was all done by Greg's Tile Creations...the touch of yellow is so fun!

There's not a ton of turquoise floating around in it, but I just had to include Cristi's oasis: her office/craft room. The builder Hatfield Homes outdid themselves here! I can't even imagine what a treat it would work from this room, high above the trees with all that light flowing in and the soaring ceiling! Love that black and white wallpaper (Thibaut's Blossom from Natural Resource) mixed with all the fresh greens. The colorful curtain fabric and basket liners are all way too cute!!

But wait...there's more!!! We're moving on downstairs guys have to see this basement. It's a lot different than the main floor, but oh-so-fun!

Cristi and Jeff's basement is ready for a par-tay! I swear I'd give up Diet Coke for that theater room! Jeff wanted the second row of seats to be higher than the first - so you can see the screen if you're sitting in the back. But he also wanted a "stage" that was moveable so if they're having a party down there, they can just move it out of the way. Brilliant! That turquoise pool table is pretty darn brilliant too. As is the retro kitchenette! Seriously, Cristi, do you want me to move in?! I'm such a die-hard fan of Elmira Stove Works...I don't get to see their turquoise appliances nearly enough! Sooo perfect here. They are an excellent fit with the cabinets done by Benjamin Blackwelder. So fun!!!

Phew, that was a lot of photos! Believe it or not, I still have a slew left for tomorrow. The master bedroom and bathroom are straight out of magazine, so be prepared for some major drool! Once again, a HUGE thank you to homeowner Cristi and Jessi Safsten of Hiya Papaya for all these amazing images! And Cristi, thank you for being so generous with all of your sources! We truly appreciate it!

Edit: Here is source info as requested!

I can't wait for more tomorrow!!

Michelle said...

Oh Erin, this is gorgeous! Every single part of each room! Do you think you could please let me know whose design is it the painting pictured in the playroom- images 1 and 3 from above? I love it, and I've been looking for something like that for a while now... I absolutely adore paintings that resemble the naivety of childhood :-) Thanks in advance for letting me know! xoxo

I am seriously in love. Forget men and chocolate, I want this house! I cannot wait for tomorrows pictures! Erin, I love your blog. Believe it or not turquoise used to be one of my least favourite colours but over the last couple of years there has been a shift and I love it so much now. Your blog definitely contributed to my change of attitude. Thank you so much for all of your hard work. So inspiring! Have a great day.

Jill Browning said...

I love the colorful rug in the kids room, any idea where it came from?

Amanda said...

That black & white & green craft room!!!!! NO WORDS-NO WORDS!! (mouth hung open)

Jill said...

I toured this house yesterday! It's part of the Utah Valley Parade of Homes! It was just stunning in person!

Carolyn@SweetChaos said...

Wow! Amazing! I'm going to be sad when this home tour ends...

Erin @ The Impatient Gardener said...

Turquoise pool table? Damn ... they DID think of everything. I'm loving the very Amy Butler-esque craft room too!

I like the bathroom because it's fun and appropriate for kids but not overly juvenile. Another perfect hit! Come on, please post tomorrow's pictures now ... please!!!!!!!!!! (Yes, I'm whining.)

Heather at Satisfying Spaces said...

I am loving this home tour! I have always wondered what it would be like to have a home completly finished. So pretty.

Sizzle and Zoom said...

Lots of color but very nicely done and this looks like it would be lots of fun to live in.

Love the last kitchen, it looks like the kitchen off Roger Rabbit!


Sheri at The Loopy Ewe said...

Love the colors. Would they be willing to share the paint color they used in that first photo? Thanks for blogging this beautiful home!

leslie said...

The more of this house I see, the more I fall in love with it! The basement is GENIUS!

mog said...

That bathroom is adorable, perfect.

And the crafts room is to die for. There are touches of turquoise in the fabric too. Gotta have that turquoise.

One question, where did you get that painting in the pool room? Love it. Oh and the turquoise pool table? I'd never seen a turquoise one.

Deb said...

Oh my gosh...this house is amazing and this tour is my favorite part of the day this week! Thanks so much for sharing it with us! ~Deb~

PS...I too am a huge turquoise fan!

Joy Marie said...

This home just makes you SMILE :). So FUN and inviting!!
Would you be willing to share the paint color in the upstairs playroom and nursery bathroom?

Benden Bizden said...

absolutely loved it! cant wait to see more!!

Allison said...

What a fun home! Fun, cheery and whimsical. The nursery is adorable. I adore the glass knobs on the doors, too. The playroom is so bold and bright. How could you not want to play in there! That is a great space for her kids. Thanks for the tour!

Sweet Simplicity said...

Fabulous kids room and bathroom! The colors are amazing.

Red Door Home said...

This is such an incredible house. Every detail has been thought through and it shows. Thanks for this incredible series and thank you to the homeowners for sharing their home.

Cristi said...

Okay! Here to answer as many questions as I can!

* The paintings on the wall in pictures 1 and 3 came from Four Chairs Furniture.

*The rug in the playroom came from Four Chairs Furniture

*The paint color in the play room (first room posted here) is the same turquoise paint color that's in the nursery bathroom. It is Benjamin Moore's Spirit in the Sky

*The photograph in the pool table room is from a wonderful Etsy seller. Here's the link to her shop:

I think that's it for now. Please let me know if you have any more questions!!

Glad you all love the home - it's our dream come true! (And yes, we're pretty darn happy people and the home just makes us even MORE happy!)

Cristi :)

I would love to know where the daisy print came from that was in the entry area. I looked on four chairs but they don't have it on their web site.

Anonymous said...

Where did the orange bedding come from? What is the paint color in the yellow bathroom?

Catherine at Design Editor said...

I have major craft space envy!! Absolutely love Day Four!

Rayia said...

Oh, wow! I just adore the children's bathroom...well pretty much everything!:) Could you at all find out where they got those AMAZING door knobs in the children's room/bathroom? Thank you so much!

Cristi said...

If there are things that you don't find on the 4-chairs website (like the daisy painting in the entry and the orange bedding), you can just click on their "contact us" link (here it is: and ask Lindy directly about the specific item. She will either know where to get it or will order one for you. She's great! Hope this helps! :)

Cristi said...

Ope - I see a couple of questions about the glass door knobs that we have throughout the home. Our builder got those for us. I believe the brand is Emtek. Glad you like them - they're another one of my favorite things! :)

Claire Penn Photography said...

WOW! Cristi I am SO honoured that my peacock feather fine art print sits in such beautiful surroundings! Thank you for sharing. And as for this blog... well... if anyone goes to my website you'll see how much I love turquoise! :)

Kincaids said...

Would you share the paint color of the basement walls- it looks like a gray green?

Jody said...

Can you tell me where the kitchen stools from yesterday's post can be found! Just what I have been searching for

Crystal @ Ordinary Days said...

LOVE!!! Oh my. I'd give up my Coke for any room in there. :)

Rene said...

Absolutely, love the feel of this home. Both the home owner and the designer did a great job making this home beautiful, casual and comfortable.

The orange duvet cover is from Pine Cone Hill. It is called the Erika Persimmon Duvet Cover. Pine Cone Hill does have a website you can buy directly from as well as being sold in stores.

You can see the Tree picture (from the colorful bedroom) at the website It is called the Tree of Life. Oopsy Daisy has a lot of great art "for kids" that is not too babyish or childlike. If a designer or store has Oopsy Daisy as one of their vendors they would be able to order you anything from them.

Cristi said...

Oooh, Rene - thanks for that info!! I didn't know either of those sources exactly since I just got the stuff directly through Lindy at Four Chairs. Happy to pass along the information. Thanks again!

Cristi :)

jenanicole said...

I absolutely love that you aren't afraid of color! I feel like the style these days is borderline mental institution with all the white and simplicity. LOVE IT!

Chic Coastal Living said...

Brooke said...

This house really is amazing in person. I went through it during the parade of homes & it is like no other house I've ever seen! What is the paint color in the nursery?? I Love it!

White Design said...

The nursery is an inspiration! Love Love Love it! I'm attempting a neutral nursery, and this has some great ideas!!

TamiV said...

Could you please tell me where to find the ligh fixture in the craftroom (the black ceiling fixture)? It's fabulous!

betsy green said...

Any idea what yellow paint was used in the kitchen? What about the taupe/grey in the basement theater room? Thanks!!!

Molly said...

some of you have asked about the grey in the media room - it's not paint! it's another Thibaut!
Tuscany Leather performance vinyl wallcovering in Metallic Pewter from Texture Resource Volume 3!

Love the house Cristi!

Chelsea said...

What a stunning home...obviously a lot of time, love and inspiration went into this house. I would love to know where you found the orange rustic furniture piece in the kids playroom? Thanks for your help!

Chelsea said...

One last question.....where did you find those amazing bright colored collection of circle mirrors in the playroom?
