Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


Hi, everyone! How are you today? Spring seems to be miles and miles away from where we live but this recently renovated California Fixer Upper is bringing some happy colors and sunshine to our day.

Here, the designer shares more insight on this beautiful project:

“With the help of McGriff Architects, IDF Studio transformed this single-story Bay Area home into the envy of the block. What was once a dark 1960’s fixer-upper has been completely rebooted as a two-story dream modern farmhouse. The interiors were thoroughly rearranged, introducing a light-filled kitchen, an inviting dining area, and a cozy family room with beautiful built-in storage. The vibe is decidedly boho and beachy, making this family of four feel like they’re on perpetual holiday.”

All furniture and decor are available through the designer.

    I am almost always unsuccessful in getting your Links to open. I’m always stalking your posts for lighting ideas for our house and I just tried the links near the Visual Comfort chandelier and then your link to Wayfair’s chandeliers under $150. Both take me to the Wayfair homepage. I tried dumping cookies. Any suggestions??? Thanks for all the inspiration!!!

  2. Hi Holly,

    I am sorry this is happening to you. This can happen sometimes when the product is out of stock. I’ve tried to fix some links here. Let me know if they’re the ones you are looking for. Also, feel free to let me know what type of lighting you need and I’ll be happy to send you some options. Another thing, I just published a post with many of my favorite light fixtures and home decor finds for 2022.

    I hope this helps!
