It’s that great time of the week again where we all come here to see a new “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” and “meet” a new homeowner. I keep getting emails from many readers and followers from Instagram asking me what they need to do to be featured on Home Bunch. The best way to do it is by sending me an email so I can see your home or, like many times I do when I see a home I like, I approach the homeowner. The best part about this series is seeing that all of us, you and I, are very excited and enjoying each feature. Getting to see these beautiful homes and getting to know these inspiring homeowners is incredibly fun. I love the fact that they are the ones who get their home ready, take the pictures and send all of the information about each space to me so I can share it all with you here. This series really showcases how their home really is, without being staged, without any fancy camera nor special filters. This is real people opening their doors and sharing their experience with us and telling us how they are living in the real world, and there isn’t a better kind of interior in my opinion.
Today, I am happy and honored to have Callie from @ceshome6 with us. She is a young mom of four and she is shaking Instagram with her gorgeous home. I really couldn’t wait to share her home because I was sure you guys would love it as much as I do. Now, let’s read what she has to say!
“My husband and I were originally from a small town right on the border of Texas and Oklahoma. We have known each other since kindergarten but didn’t start dating until our junior year of high school. After graduation we moved to the Dallas area for college and have stayed close ever since. We have been married for 12 years and have 4 beautiful children; a 14 year old daughter, an 11 year old daughter, a 7 year old son, and a 3 year old daughter. I feel very blessed to be able to stay at home with them.
Our search for this home was an adventure to say the least. We sold our previous home in 2014 and signed contracts on 3 other new build homes before finally deciding on this one. We even went through a 13 month build and backed out the month of closing. We fell in love with our neighborhood and our builder, Highland Homes, which had a great reputation for building a beautiful homes. It took another 8 months for them to build this home but it was all worth it. My husband and I chose all of the finishes for the house. While it was fun to pick out everything and really make it our style it was also a little stressful because you never know how things will turn out from a tiny color swatch, but I really couldn’t be happier with how it all came together. My favorite part of my home is the kitchen and I spent the most time choosing the finishes for this area and now we spend the most time gathered in this area as a family.
I’ve always loved to decorate my homes to really feel cozy and welcoming. I’m not really sure I have a specific design style. I just like what I like. My home is a mix of modern, rustic, farmhouse and french country.” – Callie @ceshome6.

I love how large, open, and bright our bedroom is. It has a very calming feel. I got lucky with the bed and 2 side tables because I found them at a Restoration Hardware warehouse sale in perfect condition for a steal! The downside was that they were being discontinued so there wasn’t a matching dresser. We decided to go with a darker gray dresser from Restoration Hardware in a similar line as the bed and purchase a grey comforter to tie each side of the room together.

My master bathroom was the hardest area for me to design. I really loved these gray wood looking tiles in a herringbone pattern for the floors but had no idea what tile to pick for the tub surround. I’m not joking, I went to the design center 6 times before I finally decided on the same marble tile that we used for our kitchen backsplash. I couldn’t be happier with how the final product turned out.
