Guest Blogger: Kim of Kim Hoegger Home

Hello friends,

Hope this blog post finds you all doing well and taking a few minutes to relax and spend some quality "me" time with House of Turquoise. I know for me, House of Turquoise always does the trick when I need a little R&R and inspiration.

I am Kim Hoegger of Kim Hoegger Home, a wife to a wonderful man, a mother of four young adults, a designer, blogger and antique collector. I am crazy busy keeping up with my hubby and my kids most of the time but when I find some down time I love designing gorgeous, family centered homes for my clients, teaching DIY workshops at my studio, blogging about design, glorious food and all things vintage.(I know...I am crazy busy and I love it!)

As you can imagine, when Erin asked if I would be a guest blogger on House of Turquoise,  I was thrilled and could hardly wait to get started on a post for all of you! A BIG HUG and thank you to Erin for this wonderful opportunity to share with all of you a little piece of my world at Kim Hoegger Home.

Erin and I met a year ago at Blogfest NYC in the cafe at the Flatiron Hotel. We were both ordering bagels and awaiting our exciting day to begin with Blogfest. We had a great visit and so much fun talking about blogging and the world of interior design and the bagels were amazing! Thanks to that chance meeting, we have been great friends ever since and I always look forward to the beautiful images she shares everyday on House of Turquoise.

Today, I hope to inspire you and take you away for a few minutes to my lake house which has recently been completed. My hubby and I had so much fun working on it (still working on it, lol) and are loving the way the rooms are coming together. Hope you enjoy the images!

Custom made driftwood sculpture(love it!) and a Ralph Lauren Home settee...LOVE!

The Sunroom...a perfect view, serenity at it's best. Prior to drapery :) always a work in progress!

Custom twin loveseats, Pottery Barn pillows.

My amazing kitchen! Built for many cooks, the kitchen houses two farmhouse sinks and a separate beverage station. Very large family :)

As you can imagine...this is the favorite gathering place in the house! And these barstools make it the most comfortable place in the house.

Dining room seats fourteen and most of the time we need more seating; thank goodness for outdoor dining! Custom dining chairs available through Kim Hoegger Home.

Sunrise to Sunset views from every seat in the house!

A sunny loft area at the top of the stairs...perfect for reading or a nap. I was all over the place with the linens...Restoration Hardware & Pottery Barn pillows, quilt from HomeGoods, Pottery Barn day bed also. Beauty doesn't have to be expensive.

The Master Bedroom...not quite finished but getting there. Pottery Barn linens for extra easy care and French Side chests. So far, so good!

My daughter's favorite guest room probably because her favorite color is apple green.
Don't you just LOVE the shabby French shutters? An absolutely amazing color of blue!

Hope you have enjoyed the tour of my lake house, it's really a special place that we share with family and friends throughout the year. The house will be featured this month Lakeside Living Magazine, in the Fall in Kansas City House & Garden and then next Spring/Summer in a national shelter magazine which shall remain nameless for now. Looking forward to coming back again to share the new images with you.

Have a wonderful day!

Really beautiful! It makes me homesick. I'm from TN where there are lots of rivers and lakes and trees and green things. Now I live in the West where it is mountains and desert and not much green. Still beautiful in a desert way, but just not home.

Right now I'm trying to choose a backsplash for our kitchen, and seeing your kitchen has made me rethink the choice I made last night. We replaced our counters with Blur flower granite (it seems to look similar to your granite except with some blue veining). My wall cabinets are similar to your brown ones, but then my huge island and built in hutch are ivory. I want my kitchen to stay light so I had thought about doing the lightest/creamiest (not golden) travertine in a 1x2 herringbone pattern, or maybe a subway pattern in a 3x6. The other option is a brick looking tile by Daltile called Union square Tiles in Terrace Beige. It would have a light wide set grout. I've been making choice after choice for finishing our basement, I'm having baby #6 in 2.5 weeks and this backsplash is about to push me over the edge. There is smoke coming out of my ears. I had decided on the brick look, but seeing yours makes me think travertine subways (because my cabinetry is ivory, not white).

This is such a gorgeous place to live! Definitely a place to make lots of amazing memories!!! I really like your choice in color and fabrics. The views from the sitting room are so beautiful, thanks for sharing.

Absolutely stunning!

I love the lake house, it is beautiful with all of the textures. I must say that the apple green is my favorite as well.

Sherry Daniele said...

GORGEOUS, and so beautifully appointed. The views are amazing, I wouldn't bother with draperies in the sunroom ;) What could top that water view???

traci zeller designs said...

I love, love, love this gorgeous home!!

Carolyn said...

This is gorgeous! Love the colors and choices in furnishings - well, the whole house is amazing - outside, too. I love both of the coffee tables with the natural wood, and I am looking for one similar to the one shown in the living (?) room with the shelf underneath. I've seen one something like this several years ago from Ralph Lauren. Do you remember the source for yours?


Such a relaxing home! oh and those views!! Love seeing it here Kim and in the amazing publications, Congrats! xoxoxo

Your home is stunning!
I was just telling a customer to go with the same scheme in her kitchen, combo of wood and white cabinets and wished I could have shown her your kitchen as it is just lovely!
Curious about where the island stools are from if you are able to share.


Judith said...

Thank you for sharing the photos of your lovely home. The views are amazing. You did a great job inside. It looks to be a beautiful, comfortable home.

Can you tell me the source of the kitchen stools? I am in need of some and this style would surely fit my home.
