Starting a new week gets even better with Beautiful Homes of Instagram, especially when we have someone as especial as Karen from @SanctuaryHomeDecor!

Asking Karen to be featured on Home Bunch was an easy decision to make, especially after seeing a few pictures of her California home. Seeing her dogs and horses made me fall even more in love with this place and I know that you will too after you getting to know Karen and her inspiring lifestyle.

 

Hello!  I’m Karen from @SanctuaryHomeDecor and I am so honored to have been asked by Luciane to share our home with you!  Her site is so inspirational to me and I am in awe at all of the incredible homes that she shares…I can hardly believe she wants to include our home among them.

I wanted to share a little bit about my family and me…my husband and I are both native Californians and we met eighteen years ago when I was a real estate agent and sold him a house…He jokes that he didn’t realize it was a package deal!  We have three wonderful kids, a son and daughter in college and another daughter in middle school.  We also have three dogs and five horses so there is no lack of furry critters to love at our home!

I worked in the fashion industry in my younger years, then transitioned into selling residential real estate, and most recently was an event designer for weddings and parties.  All of these experiences combined to bring me to my latest adventure and my true love; sharing our family’s journey of creating a home filled, not only with beautiful things, but with joy and peace, through my blog, social media and online shop .

We are a horse loving family, and have a ranch in Montana, where we spend our summers, but for the remainder of the year we live in Hidden Hills, a beautiful equestrian community just north of Los Angeles.  It is truly like living in the country here.  We have horses in our back yard and miles of trails just outside our fences.  Our community has parades and neighborhood parties and is about as close to small town living as we can get in a big city.

Since we moved into Hidden Hills, seventeen years ago, we have built and lived in three different homes, all within a mile of each other! My husband and I LOVE to have a home project to work on and might be considered “serial home builders” at this point.  

The home I am sharing today is by far my favorite, because we were able to take all of our prior experiences and roll them into a house that combines all of the finishes and elements we love with some very personal touches that are meaningful to our family.  The most special part of this property is not the home itself, but the surroundings in which this home sits.  

We have just over an acre of land at the end of a cul-de-sac, and while there are neighbors on all sides, we have complete privacy because of the amazing oak tress and landscaping.  When we bought this property, there was no landscaping at all and the house was a virtual tear down, but we were so enchanted with the oaks, we decided to take on the project and build a country cottage among the trees for our family.

Our vision for this home was to create a place that was a sanctuary from the craziness that we often experience living in a big city.  We looked at thousands of pictures online and in magazines and developed an overall design concept.  We then relied on our prior architect, George at Rocha Nuez & Associates, to develop the elevation and floor plan.  I had a very clear vision for the interior design elements, and with the support and guidance of my great friend, Tracey at Tracey Allison Design, I was able to bring that vision to life.  It took nearly two years to complete the house and landscaping and even still, there are many projects left to finish.  In the meantime we are settling into our little sanctuary in the city and I am so excited to share a bit of it with you today!

Our living room is somewhat oversized with vaulted ceilings, so to add some warmth, we incorporated reclaimed wood beams, brought from  Montana.  It took us a while to find the right chandelier for this room.  We tried several designs and ultimately decided on this simple iron piece from Restoration Hardware.

Our library also serves as my husband’s office and is a room that we decided to go a bit bolder with in terms of paint.  We built in a wall of shelves and cabinets, paneled the remaining walls and installed a coffered ceiling.  We painted the entire room a charcoal gray, including the ceiling.  I love the contrast of this gray with the warm tones of the desk, chair and books.

The kitchen is truly the heart of our home. It is located directly in the middle of the house and is just big enough to be functional without being overwhelming.  This whole space was designed around the range hood which was custom made. We loved the mix of wood and metal and felt that it set the right tone for the country cottage look we wanted to achieve.  We also added reclaimed wood beams to bring in additional warmth.

Rather than one large island, we decided on a prep island with a sink, and a separate eating island.  I had this configuration in my previous kitchen and loved the way it functioned.  We painted the prep island the same charcoal gray as the library, giving the kitchen a sense of continuity with the rest of the house.

Our home is mostly one story, except for two bedrooms and bathrooms accessed by a back staircase.  Because the wall beside the stairs is two stories high we decided to bring another touch of Montana to this area and finished the entire wall in reclaimed barn wood.  I cannot tell you how much I love this look and how much warmth it brings to what would otherwise be a very stark space.  The addition of framed photos of our summer ranch makes this a very special place in our home.

 It has taken a full year and lot of rain and love to make this garden what it is today. I cannot take credit for this, as my husband is the landscape visionary and gardener in our family. 🙂

Hello, my friends!

Wasn’t it wonderful to see Karen’s home today? She is such a sweetheart and I am so happy to have her on the blog. I hope you enjoy it!

Did you have a good weekend? Mine was great! I finished a project and even had time to bake a chocolate cake with my kids. That is always messy but I love baking with them! I know that we’re building “sweet” memories whenever we bake together! 🙂

Have a Blessed & Healthy week, my wonderful friends!

We’ll talk soon!

with Love,
