Hello, my wonderful friends! How are you today? I am having a crazy busy week and I am a little late with this post but I am sure it will be all worth it. In my opinion, there’s something very special about our “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” series. Besides having the homeowners approaching me (through tags and DMs on my Instagram), it’s their willingness to get their home ready for a house tour, taking the pictures (themselves or professionally) and opening their doors and their heart to share all of the details with you that makes things feel extra special.
Today we will be touring Lacey’s, @wrapped_in_lace‘, stunning home and let me tell you, be prepared because this is a home you will fall in love with. I certainly did! Lacey’s style is impeccable and her home feels heavenly. It’s a place where classic elements are harmoniously balanced and where comfort prevails.
Keep reading to learn about Lacey’s journey of building her dream home:
“Hey everyone! I’m Lacey Karasik of @wrapped_in_lace and I’m so thrilled to be featured by Luciane today! When we were searching for ideas while building our home, we used Instagram as our search tool and I feel so honored to now be a part of that inspiration for others!
Before our home tour, I’d love to tell you a little bit more about myself! I was born and raised in Georgia, and am proud to consider myself a Georgia Peach! I grew up going to a nature based school and learned to have a great respect and appreciation for our environment and the animals that live on it. It made me who I am today, and gave me the compassion to run recycling programs and volunteer in animal rights activism in my personal life. I went to college for early childhood education and taught first grade for almost 5 years before I became a stay at home mom. My husband and I just celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary, and hope to vacation in Japan for our 10 year celebration! In 2018 my husband and I decided to build a home close to the nature based school that had such a huge impact on my life, so we could carry on the tradition for our children.
While I loved teaching, the biggest regret I had in my life was not getting my interior design degree. When we went into quarantine for Covid, I decided I would start this account in hopes of turning it into a portfolio for a career in design one day in lieu of going back to school for a degree. I wanted to take everyone on the decorating journey as we filled our home with love and warmth. I never knew how many doors this would open for me, and just how big of an impact it would have in my life! I have had so much fun finding “my style” through this experience, and have found that it’s ever evolving. I love all styles of decor but find that my home styling consists of modern, coastal and grand millennial vibes. However, if you ask my husband- my style changes daily! What can I say? I’m forever inspired! I’d love for you to follow me as I drive my husband crazy, re-styling and re-decorating our home!
I hope you enjoy my home tour! “
“First and foremost, I have to send a huge shoutout to my father-in-law for building our home! He is the reason why we were able to build our dream home, and we appreciate his time, effort and love so, so much.” – Lacey of @wrapped_in_lace

“The number one thing (behind a mudroom) on my husbands “must have” list, was gas lanterns. I am so glad that was a must for him and think they are the perfect way to escalate a front porch.” – Lacey of @wrapped_in_lace
“It’s funny because when we first designed our house, our exterior was actually of a French country style. We live in a cul-de-sac off a road with two other farmhouses and right before we started building, we scrapped the French country exterior and swapped instead for a farmhouse one. While I was upset with the choice originally, it added my favorite “room” of the house- the front porch! If you ever can’t find me, that’s more than likely where I am.” – Lacey of @wrapped_in_lace

“We decided on an open floor concept for this space so that we could be with our guests while we entertained. We find that when the space is broken up, you have to move back and forth between the kitchen, dining area, and family room. To make things easier and more open, we designed the space to be one large room.”
Curtain Rods: Acrylic Double Rod Hardware Set.
Rug: Light Gray Rug.

“One thing we are getting ready to do, is wallpaper the built in shelves. We have a gorgeous blue grasscloth we plan on using- just waiting for our installer.”
Isn’t Nico adorable? He matches perfectly with the rug and the coffee table. 🙂
“The frame tv has been one of our favorite purchases. My husband wasn’t too happy about the price tag, but loves the fact that it sits against the wall so nobody can see the chords behind it. We actually had our electrician wire the chords through the drywall and into our cabinets to hide the black box.”
Side Table: Gabby Home Annie Light Whitewashed Wood Side Table .
Table Lamp: Kelly Wearstler Linden 1 – Light Table Lamp.
“This is our dining room is where we typically eat our dinners if it’s raining or too cold outside. We had our table custom made from by the wonderful @TableTopDan- they were so nice to work with, and have beautiful craftsmanship! We still have yet to find the perfect dining chairs so we are still sharing these chairs with our outdoor dining table! One of these days I’ll find the perfect chairs for this space, but until then – sharing is caring.” 😉
Host Dining Chairs: Ballard Designs (Discontinued).
Side chairs were from HomeGoods.
Mirror: Lindy Mirror.

Topiary: Thyme Topiary in Pot Faux Botanicals.

“People kept telling me that brass will go out of style within a year but I just loved it too much to listen! I’m so very glad I went with my guts because I STILL love it, and from me- that’s saying a lot! The little faucet on the right is our filtered drinking water faucet.”
“This is our kitchen nook and one of my favorite rooms in the house. Its surrounded by three walls of windows, and just a lovely place to eat with the family.

“This is our pantry and like my other gorgeous sliding barn doors – these were also made by Charity & Jake of @asuiteidea. They are really great at what they do!”
“We really wanted to keep our countertops free of clutter so we designed our pantry to house all of our appliances. We also had our electrician and Millwork company work together to hide the outlets under our cabinetry.
This is where we hide the appliances that we use most often. The rest are in cabinets below our island. We wanted to make sure we kept everything off of our countertops and out of site. This was a really easy alternative when building your own house. We also added hidden outlets underneath the upper cabinets.”
“This is the main living area restroom, and I love the soft color palette. This was the first room in the house we wallpapered, and I’m still in love with the pattern! This room is so long and narrow that we had to have our Millwork company make a custom vanity to fit the space.”

“This is my daughters room, but the wall color photographs terribly. It’s a very pale peach color and just beautiful in person. I wanted this room to be feminine and whimsical for her, but also grow with her as she gets older.
I had this booster custom made with a fabric I found for her bedroom! I wanted to go for a monochromatic look for this room.”
“This dresser is one of my all time favorite DIY dupes I did of a Pottery Barn dresser, using an IKEA dresser. The little bow knobs are my favorite!”
Mirror: here – similar.
“I wanted the focal wall in this room to be on the ceiling because I had never seen that done before. I thought it was a really unique idea to bring the eyes up as you enter the bedroom. My husband put the decals on the ceiling for her, and it was a labor of love for sure!”
“I love a little closet organization! We bought this system at The Container store, and you can really build it to whatever size and design you want!”
“I chose to continue the peach theme throughout her bathroom. Swapped out the little knobs that came with the vanity, for a cuter knob that fit the style of the room.”

Lighting: Pottery Barn.
“This is the master bedroom, and my main goal in here was to make it a very tranquil space to relax and unwind. We shiplapped our ceiling with a white washed wood we found at Home Depot.
This bed was our first custom piece of furniture we had made for our home. It was one of the few pieces that made it to the new house in the move! “
The art above my bed were also commissioned by @FredCoxFineArt.

My husband DIY’d the wall by himself!”
Sconces: Pottery Barn Hayden Sconce.
Bathroom Vanities: Digiacomo 48″ Single Bathroom Vanity Set.
“This shower was a little larger than we had planned on it being! Because I wanted the symmetry in the bathroom, we ended up making the shower larger and the closet smaller, which I now regret. You live and you learn!”
