Beautiful Homes of Instagram became one of my favorite series on Home Bunch for many reasons. We get to know all of these talented homeowners, we see how they decorate their homes and not to mention that we get to see a different a home with its own unique style every week. This is a series that never gets boring!
How can I describe Missy’s style from @missyatperch without mentioning her personality? I’ve being following Missy on Instagram for a while now and it was wonderful to get to know that she loves to decorate and adds something new to her home often. She is talented and sweet and you can’t help but adore her.
Missy lives in a house that is truly a dream… one of those places you drive by and you wonder who lives inside. Today, we will not only know who lives in it but also have a private tour with pictures taken by the homeowner and with all of the details shared. Here, you will also see how much this home is loved. The love can be felt in the details and in the beauty this home exudes, inside and out.
Hi Friends! My name is Missy and I am so thrilled that Luciane asked me to share my home with you all today! I am also incredibly honored to be included among such a talented group of my favorite IG friends! I find inspiration daily on Instagram and I love getting a glimpse inside their gorgeous homes. I also truly believe that the home decor community on IG is filled with
the kindest and most supportive group of incredible people. I love the friends that I’ve made here over the last year!
My husband and I met on a blind date and we will be celebrating our 25th anniversary this year. We share our home with our three sons; two in college and one in high school. We also have two very spoiled retrievers, Brady and Griffin – you might see them in some of the photos!
Joe and I met in NY and lived there for 9 years before moving to the DC suburb of Potomac, Maryland to be closer to family. We bought our forever house, spent 5 years renovating and furnishing it and planned to live there until our boys were grown. As luck would have it, an opportunity to buy an adjacent property presented itself just as we were getting comfortable in that forever home and in 2005, we started all over! We spent two years renovating our current home and we’ve now been here for ten years. We love the house, but it was the land that sold us on this property. We have about 40 acres and my family, especially our dogs, really takes advantage of our land. We can hike, swim, ride bikes and play golf, tennis, basketball and volleyball without ever leaving home. I love having a garden and I can keep cut flowers in the house from spring through fall from our yard. Having a few extra acres also allows us to have a handful of outbuildings, which is super handy. We have a pool house, guest house, two apartments, several garages and sheds, and a large barn. The prior owners kept horses on the property and the beautiful barn is a fully equipped stable.
In designing and decorating our home, I wanted to have spaces that were elegant for guests, but at the same time practical for a busy household that includes 3 boys and 2 big dogs. After 10 years, I think that we accomplished our mission. We entertain frequently and we use every inch of this house – and it’s held up quite well! Slipcovers on some of the upholstered furniture definitely helps, as does hardwood flooring throughout the house with wool (naturally stain resistant!) area rugs.
My design aesthetic is fairly traditional with a modern twist, and never stagnant. I’m always moving things around! I also appreciate the art of mixing high/low design. I love having art, antiques and furnishings with beautiful fabrics and finishes. And, I also love fun finds from Michaels and Target or a local flea market. Creating and designing homes for my family has been my love language for as long as I can remember and I can’t imagine that will ever change!
