I am so happy to start the week here on Home Bunch with someone as special as Laura. This girl should get a medal! She is a mom of four adorable girls, has a beautiful blog where she shares a lot of DIYs and even recipes, and has transformed her farmhouse over the years along with her husband.

Make sure to read on and follow her beautiful story on instagram as well. I really can’t get enough of her home and her approach to life and design.

 

Hi Everyone! When Luciane reached out to me and asked if I’d like to share my home for her “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” series, I can’t even tell you how excited (and humbled) that I was. I’ve been an avid reader of her blog for years and years, and like so many other people, it’s been one of the places I’ve always counted on for beautiful architecture and home design inspiration. I’m so thrilled to be here, sharing my home with all of you today, and so grateful to Luciane for asking me to be a part of this amazing series!

My name’s Laura and I’m an interior designer and blogger over at Willow Street Interiors. I live in a quiet, little country suburb, 45 minutes outside of Boston, with my incredible husband and four little girls. I’m a lover of all things beautiful, all things family, and all things home.

I met my husband in 2000, and we got married in 2003 on a beach, at sunset. It was quiet and serene and completely romantic. My husband grew up in Germany surrounded by farms and tractors. When we started looking to buy a house, land that reminded him of home topped his list. I wanted a place with a sense of history. And fruit trees.

We found our circa 1880 farmhouse in 2007, and closed on it 3 months after our first baby was born. It had an apple orchard and six acres, at a price we could afford, and so, the deal was made. It needed a massive amount of work, but it didn’t matter. We were young and ambitious, and planned to redo the entire house in a year. Naivety is bliss, for sure.

We did do a ton that first year. The projects were non-stop, my husband worked full time, with the fortunate ability of making his own schedule. I stayed home with our baby and planned the projects! Despite all of the craziness, I have nothing but fond memories of all of those new, chaotic, first year experiences.

And well, we’ve been renovating ever since, and our family has grown quite a bit since then! We are now the proud parents of four, beautiful daughters. Our oldest, who was 1 when we moved in, is now 9! We also have a 7 year old, 4 year old, and 5 month old. The projects continue, the girls are growing, and this crazy beautiful life just keeps on getting crazier, messier, and more beautiful.

Although we have many, many more projects that still need attending to, the house has come such a long way over the years! When we first bought our house, it was a very humble, antique farmhouse in need of lots of repairs and updates. You couldn’t see the first floor windows in the front of the house because they’d been overtaken by huge evergreen bushes. We took them out, did our best to freshen up the landscape, and we began to restore the farmhouse feel that had been lost over the years.

There used to be a driveway that wrapped around the entire house, and took away much of the lower half of the yard. One of the very first things we did when we moved in, was remove it, and then we planted lots and lots of grass in its place.

We’ve added lots of beds and flowering shrubs throughout the property over the years. We still haven’t been able to tackle our entryway, porches or siding, but we’ll be freshening up the front of the house later this summer, and I am SO excited about it!

Remember when I said the house was very humble and in need of lots of updating earlier? Well, when we first moved in, the kitchen didn’t even have cabinets or countertops, and the home’s high ceilings throughout the downstairs had been covered by suspended, drop in ceiling tiles? It was quite the sight, but we were were undaunted.

We opened things up to make the smallish downstairs feel larger, and although we’re still not nearly finished checking things off of our to do list, things have finally started to take shape!

This is our kitchen today!

Our breakfast nook used to be a small hallway which housed a washer and drier and led to the backyard, and also contained a very small bathroom. We took down the wall, took out the doorway and the bathroom, added windows, and created a breakfast nook its place. We now have access to the backyard through french doors that we installed in our living room.

Our living room is just off of our kitchen, and it’s also much more open now than it used to be. Believe it or not, this one room used to be three rooms! Three rooms with three little windows. We took out the three smaller windows and added two, much larger sets, as well as a set of french doors that lead to the backyard. Now this room has a pretty view of our apple trees, as well as the girls’ tree house.

Our bedroom is completely different than it was initially. When we first bought the house, it was actually two small rooms with very little natural light. There was also an attic space above it. We took down a wall to open things up, vaulted the ceiling, added his and her closets and built a little window seat in between. It was such a dramatic transformation, and the space really feels like a restful sanctuary now.

I can’t even guess at how many hours we’ve spent working in the yard, beating back weeds and small trees, and reclaiming as much of the land as possible.

    As much as I love most of the homes you feature, it is nice to see a home where the decor was sourced from the places I shop at. Thanks for featuring this beautiful home!

  2. Hi Rebecca,

    I totally agree with you.This series is to show beautiful yet real homes, from real people like you and I. I am not sharing magazine-staged homes even though these homes are magazine-worthy! 🙂

    I think it’s important for all of us to know that, especially nowadays, you can have a beautiful home w/out breaking the bank and most importantly, you can design it yourself. I hope that all readers can feel inspired and learn something from these homeowners. This is my goal w/ this series.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Luciane
