Day Five: Dream Home Tour



















I'm so sad this tour is coming to an end! A million thank you's to Cristi and Jeff for welcoming us all into their amazing home! I hope you thoroughly enjoyed it as much as I did, and that our final day today left you with a ton of inspiration. I'm totally smitten with the master bedroom in their home. Doesn't it exude such a calming retreat-like vibe?? I love that they went with the grasscloth wallcovering from Thibaut...the texture and color is perfection. The sliding barn door is super cute too! And HELLO, dream bath alert! Did you see all that glorious tile?! We can thank the talented guys over at Greg's Tile Creations for that eye candy. It looks fantastic with the wallpaper (Coral Gables from Thibaut). I really love the layout of this space, the corner vanity is so cool, and the open shower like that. I'd never manage to get ready in the mornings with all this beauty to stare off at!

Next we have their upstairs hallway. I've never seen a more lovelier window seat! I love Cristi's display cabinet here...almost everything you see was passed down from her mom. Love the wallpaper in this area too...Thibaut of course (Roma in White on Pearl). She has even more sentimental stuff displayed in that gorgeous laundry room, in addition to more beautiful cabinetry work done by Benjamin Blackwelder (painted BM Palladian Blue...so pretty). I love that the flower panels are doors that are covering the circuit switches. Cute touch!

Lastly in this week-long tour is the breezy family room. This looks like the place the family kicks back and relaxes. Did you see that fan?! Coolest thing ever! I've been crazy about that Tiffany Peacock rug forever! Seriously this home has some brilliant, colorful rugs, doesn't it?! (Walls are painted Restoration Hardware's Silver Sage.)

So that's it you guys! For more info on Morgan Hatfield, the outstanding builder of this dream home, visit Hatfield Homes. The uber-talented interior designer Lindy Allen did an amazing job in every single room here, so be sure to visit her store Four Chairs Furniture. Lastly, we wouldn't have enjoyed this tour nearly as much if the photography wasn't so stunning. Cristi and Jessi Safsten did one heck of a job with the photos! Check out their blog at hiya papaya for never-ending gems, and if you're in Utah, look them up because they do amazing wedding photography and portraits too! And with that, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend...enjoy every minute!! :)

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 now...you 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!

Day Three: Dream Home Tour











Up next in our week-long tour of my reader Cristi's home is her kitchen and breakfast area. I have been eating up every little inch of this space since I first laid eyes on it! Nothing is prettier than a white kitchen warmed up with beautiful hardwood flooring and colorful tiles. You may remember from yesterday that all the floor in the home was reclaimed from an old barn out east. Love that. Did you notice the closeup of the countertop? This company called Vetrazzo makes them out of recycled glass...you can even read words on some of the pieces. So much cooler than granite, don't you think??

The cabinets were all done by Benjamin Blackwelder, who actually made the kitchen so specifically to Cristi's height (she's only 5'0" tall) that the island was measured out by her standing on telephone books! The tile was all done by Greg's Tile Creations (you'll love what they did in the bathrooms too). Cristi and her designer Lindy Allen picked them out Contempo Tile.

What dream kitchen would be without its own perfect little breakfast nook?! Cristi and Jeff designed the area to be east-facing so it would get plenty of the morning sunlight. I just love those bold tufted chairs from 4-chairs.com! The "coco mirror" from West Elm is another one of Cristi's favorite things in the house - it's made out of bleached coconut shells!

Thanks to the homeowner Cristi and Jessi Safsten of Hiya Papaya for all these gorgeous images! I'll be back tomorrow with some really cool and super fun spaces from this home!

Day Two: Dream Home Tour











And the tour continues...mouths agape for sure! For me the most striking thing about Cristi's home is the flooring. Absolutely beyond beautiful. It is actually a reclaimed oak that the couple got from a barn back on the east coast. The brick floor in the mudroom is also reclaimed, found by the builder Hatfield Homes. I'm sure you all noticed the colorful barn wood on the wall in the world's most adorable mudroom...yeah, that wood came from the farm Cristi grew up on in Idaho. Being a super sentimental person, that's one her favorite things in the whole house. I would LOVE to do that with the barn wood from my grandparent's farm...how special!

The living room is just something else. I adore the serene color palette, the mix of patterns going on and the subtle nod to the coast. And how incredible is the piano room?! That floor!!! The ceiling is so cool too. It was actually done by their cabinet guy, Benjamin Blackwelder. Just wait until tomorrow when you see the eye candy he cooked up in the kitchen!

If you missed out on Day One of the tour, check it out here! Like yesterday, these beautiful interior photos were taken by the homeowner Cristi and Jessi Safsten...you can see more of their photography at Hiya Papaya! A lot of the furnishings you see came from designer Lindy Allen and her store Four Chairs Furniture. But if you have any questions about anything, just ask!
