I might be wrong, but I am starting to think that you can’t be a minimalist if you really like the farmhouse style. To truly achieve this welcoming look, you will want to layer your home with plenty of textures and fill each every room with character, personality and your special touch. This is what really makes the farmhouse style so appealing to many – the fact that you can stamp your own personality and create a home that reflects who you are and how you like to live.
I am honored to be sharing @greybirchdesigns‘ on our “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” series today and I hope you feel embraced by this beautiful home and this loving family!
“We are James and Kaycie Chiampi we have been married for 15 years and have 5 kids. We built our home about 4 years ago when we moved from our home town of Newport Beach CA to Salt Lake City UT.
I wanted to take our builder grade home and turn it into more of a custom home and with my background in interior design and my husband being a self taught woodworker it was a project we were excited to tackle!”

In our kitchen we have custom white kitchen cabinets with a medium glaze over the top to give them a more distressed look.

Off our kitchen we add the sunroom with our builder and this is one of the most used rooms. It’s where we eat all our meals and we love all the natural light from the windows this room gives to the home!

We did a fun project and built a DIY wood beam in the space between the kitchen and living room to define each space wile still keeping with the flow of our open floor plan. It’s one of my favorite projects and I have a tutorial on my blog.

The living room also has one of my favorite features and that’s our floor to ceiling stone fireplace. When we built our home the builder put in our fireplace but stopped the stone at the mantle. I always felt it was incomplete so my husband and I continued the stone to the ceiling and now it’s the focal point of the room! We also added a shiplap wall behind our tv.
In my youngest son’s room we built him a playhouse bed and it’s so fun!! He helped us pick out what he wanted it to look like and we built it.

In my younger daughter’s room we did a fun wood wall behind her bed making squares out of strips of MDF then we painted it Icy Avalanche by Valspar. The rest of her room is painted Silver Fox by Benjamin Moore. We also added Peonies wall decals around her window to bring in that feminine touch and add some pops of pink.
