Day One: Dream Home Tour









I'm beyond excited to share this spectacular home with you guys. Believe it or not, this space actually belongs to one of my readers. After years of saving design ideas in a folder, Cristi and her husband Jeff recently completed building their dream home in Lindon, Utah. They knew exactly what kind of home they wanted: light, beachy and airy. The couple has ties to Hawaii and wanted to incorporate that feel into their new home. And two years ago they took a trip out to the Hamptons (they won the trip on Price is Right! ha!) and fell in love with the homes out there. (There should really be a support group for us!) When it came time to finally build their new home, their aim was to fuse the Hawaiian beachy feel with the Hamptons waterfront classic architecture and design. I'm loving the results!

Their dream home took them a year and a half to complete from the design and concept stage to the certificate of occupancy. They selected award-winning Morgan Hatfield of Hatfield Homes to bring their vision to life. Cristi's husband Jeff actually did quite a bit of the architectural design while Cristi worked very closely with another award-winner, talented interior designer Lindy Allen of Four Chairs Furniture. She was able to perfectly implement all of those fabulous ideas Cristi had been saving for so long. (In fact, it's an honor to know a lot of her inspiration actually came from reading House of Turquoise!) Building their new home was a labor of love for them and it truly is "their baby"!

Cristi may not be a designer, but it should come as no surprise that she does indeed have an artistic background. She's not only musical, but is also a photographer by profession. (She and Jessi Safsten of Hiya Papaya took all these amazing images above!) Check out their website here...what talent! Cristi also has a really fun and colorful Etsy shop where she sells cute recycled accessories and her beautiful prints.

Seriously, I'm madly in love with this home and Cristi's photographs that capture it so beautifully. Pretty sure if I was going to build my dream home it would look exactly like this. All week I'm going to be taking you on a tour of their entire home, so come back tomorrow to continue on! I can't wait for you guys to see more of it...I guarantee you'll love it all!

If you have any questions at all about anything you see, please don't hesitate to ask away! Cristi is a real sweetheart and is more than willing to share! :)

I am so in love with that chandelier!

Sarah said...

Erin,

I think this is going to be my favorite week on your blog, although I must say I love every week, but this house is incredible.

San and I are moving to a townhouse apartment in Minneapolis (right on the border of Minneapolis and Richfield) on Wednesday and have started to think about decorating. The only style we can agree on (and I want him to have a say in the decorating because he has strong feelings about it) is a beachy coastal style which I have rarely seen in MN. However, this house is already giving me the confidence to translate that style somewhere that is nowhere near the ocean. We have over 10,000 lakes so really we should be able to decorate like people do when they live on the ocean, right?

I can't wait to see more of this delicious house!!

Thanks!
-Sarah

Tanya @ Dans le Townhouse said...

Gorgeous home! Love how light-filled it is.

Ann said...

Oh what a lovely home...

Even just from the facade alone,
it already looks interesting and lovely. The interiors are just divine.

Karena said...

Erin how wonderful for this lovely couple!!

Adore the settee with that lovely patterned rug!

Oh my gosh! I love everything about this house. I would love to know some of the details.

Cristi, would you mind sharing the make of the front door and handle, along with the paint color of the door? Also, I love the exterior lights (the pendant and garage sconces). Where can I find those?

Thanks so much!

Romance In A Glance said...

Wow, wow, wow. All of my favorite things are in this home. The light, beachy, relaxed, airy feel is just superb. I'm looking forward to seeing more of this amazing home.

Cristi said...

Hi everyone! Thank you for the wonderful comments! And thanks so much, Erin, for doing this post. It's a dream come true! :)

I'll try to answer all the questions that I can. Here goes:

Front door paint color (and garage and shuttters - which aren't up in the pics posted here yet): Benjamin Moore's Wythe Blue (HC-143)

Entry color: Restoration Hardware's Silver Sage (my FAVORITE paint color in the entire house!)

Sandy paint color: Benjamin Moore's Ashwood (OC-47)

You can find the chandelier at laylagrayce.com

You can find the rugs at 4-chairs.com

Okay ... so I THINK that was all the questions for now. Let me know if there are any more!!

Lindy @Four Chairs:) said...

Erin,
I have to tell you it is an absolute honor to have you feature this home, it was the most fabulous year of my life, and a pleasure to do.
The home owners Jeff and Cristi are the best people I know, I always tell them they have ruined me and I can't work for anyone else! haha!!
Cristi actually turned me on to your blog and I have been an addict ever since!
Thank you for loving it! House of Turquoise had so much to do with inspiration for rooms throughout!
Much love,

Lovely, indeed!

Would you please share with us the material of the exterior? Did the shingles come that color or were they painted? If they were painted, what color are they?? Also, what is the color of the exterior trim...I love that it's just the right shade!

Thanks!!

Liz

Cristi said...

The shingles are real cedar shakes. They came natural and our builder hand-dipped each one (!!!) in paint so that they would still have the "natural" look to them. The color of the shakes is Benjamin Moore's Edgecomb Gray (HC-173). I'll have to find out the color of the trim. I don't remember that off the top of my head. (So many whites to choose from and my pregnant brain is forgetting which one we actually did end up going with!) Will get back to you on that!

Cristi said...

You know what? I think I'm remembering that the trim color is Benjamin Moore's White Dove (OC-17). I know that's what the inside trim color is. I'm pretty sure we used it for the exterior too. :)

I would love to have a home like that one day! I love the colors, and the setting is beautiful!!

Kerry said...

Any chance you could share the make of the exterior lights? Thanks!

I'm Busy Procrastinating said...

Can't wait for more! I love everything about what we've seen so far, especially the doors. Oh, and the weathered-yet-modern chairs on the porch!

Jan's camera said...

So beautiful. I can't wait to see Day Two, Three, etc.

mrsben said...

The colourS are beautiful as so are the h/w floors! -Brenda-

Jan's camera said...

Ooh, I didn't notice those beautiful weathered chairs on the porch. Where are those from? Also, what brand is the front door and even the numbers are beautiful. Very art deco. Congratulations!

Between The Boxwoods said...

I LOVE the gray shingles and the blue front door. Love, love love!

Cristi said...

The front door was custom-designed and made here locally by a company called Columbia Millworks. The chairs on the back porch are made from an old boat - pretty cool, right?! Our designer (www.4-chairs.com) got them. The front door handle and numbers just came from Home Depot! :)

Cristi said...

Kerry, the exterior lights came from Hansen Lighting. I'm trying to track down the exact web link right now.

Cristi said...

Here's the link for the exterior lights:

The turquoise really gives a sense of peace. I love the decor in this house. Beautiful decorating.

What I'm most surprised about is that they actually won a trip on Price is Right! LOL!

How inspiring! It pays to keep an inspiration book and then get to really put it to use!

I love the window pane mirror in the last picture. Can you share the source? thanks!

I'm a new follower and am loving it! Turquoise is my favorite color and I'm getting so much inspiration from your blog!

This house is definitely a dream home contender for me!

Amelia @ Home Decors said...

What a lovely house - and it looks pretty expensive. I too have been "dreaming" to own a Hawaiian-themed house - with the beach, the white sand, the sun, and all the holas.

Ever since me and my hubby had our honeymoon in Hawaii eight years ago, I can't stop thinking about it.

For now, our current 2-floor home is good enough.

This is exactly what would make a good post a very useful one. It's also great to see that the houses you featured are great examples.

What a great house! Love the old bedroom door that they turned into a coat rack. Such a great DIY idea.

Laurie said...

holy smokes! This is truly the perfect house. I would take it as is.
We've been renovating, updating our house for 10 months now, hopefully when we're done it'll look half as good as this.

Auction Addict said...

I love turquoise! I just featured a pretty room by Alex Papachristidis on my blog that has some really pretty vases in it. They go so well with his Beatles prints. This house is great too.

Renee@alifemorebeautiful said...

Wow, I'm so in love, this home is just stunning. I'm working room by room in my house with hopes of giving a similar look and feel, these pics are definitely going in the inspiration file.

Lynda Thompson said...

This is just beautiful. I love turquoise and this site is awesome.

Michelle @ Ten June said...

Holy. Cow. This home is GORGEOUS!

So crisp, clean, just gorgeous...and guess what?! Its in the town right next me!
I am new to the blogging community and yours was my first favorite...due to us sharing the same colors. Thank you for giving me something to look forward to everyday.
Christine

Carla said...

I would have never guessed that house was in Utah. Awesome home tour. Being in Texas and the hubby is 100% Texas and it shows up in our home. But I still enjoy the light airy style of Jeff and Cristi's home. Beautiful and I really like the blue chandlier.

JOnell said...

YAY! What a gorgeous, gorgeous home. Thank you so much for sharing all the wonderful details of this house...the paint colors, product sources, etc. It is *so* refreshing to be able to find answers to the questions swirling in my head (i.e. "Gosh I wonder what that color is?")

Your blog always inspiring. Thank you!

Pansker said...

Where can I find those cute pics in the entry way? They are above the bench. I love this whole house, but thought maybe I could afford the pictures.

Erin said...

Pansker,
Those lovely prints can be found right over here!

Toronto Home Renovations said...

Really, This is the special house. I like your work. You are doing a perfect work for each point in your house. Wood floors are some of the most beautiful and warmest floors you can have in your home.Homes with wood flooring have proven to have a higher resale value and sell faster than comparable homes without wood floors.

Kallee said...

Perfection in every detail. I love this house. Just looking at the pictures makes me feel happy. I am curious where the entry rug and the nook off of the entry rug came from.

Virginia said...

Swoon!
Such a lovely house.
I have to say that our family has been enjoying our Wythe Blue office for the past year. It's a beautiful colour that has a different mood for every time of day. How nice to use it on the front door.

Kitchen Benchtops said...

Absolutely fantastic! My favorite set is even more fabulous with these new pieces :) Thanks so much for sharing!

jntb. said...

IN LOVE! i have looked at all 5 days Erin posted of this home! I can't find the name of the wood flooring anywhere though! Does anyone know? Thanks! I would never leave home!!!! :)

Primer and Painted Nails said...

This home is crazy spectacular in every way!! I am obsessed with those floors. Did they do some kind of finish on them to get that variation in color, etc.? I know they are reclaimed.... but did they look that great from the get go? I have to replicate them!

Just Spiff It said...

What an incredible home. I really love the blue front door. We just got a new front door and have tossed around painting it blue !

Wallpaper Perth said...

I love the timber flooring in this house, what type of timber is it?

Cassady said...

Simply LOVE this beautiful home! I am a few years behind on discovering this post, but after reading through the comments, I was curious if the ceiling color throughout the house is also Benjamin Moore's White Dove (like the trim) or just decorator's white? Thanks for any help on this topic!

Cristi said...

@Cassady - I just found your post. Sorry! Yes, the ceilings are white dove as well. @wallpaper Perth, the floors are white oak - reclaimed wood from an old barn. @Primer and Painted Nails - the floor color was hard to achieve (our finishers had never done anything like it). They painted over them (did a white washing) with a white-green-grayish paint to achieve the worn, beachy look.
