Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


Hi, my dear friends! How’s life? Things are busy at our home. I have been doing a lot of cooking and tying to get things ready for Christmas as much as I can because I really want to be able to enjoy Christmas this year. I am not sure if this happens with you, but sometimes we get so overwhelmed with all of the things we need to prepare for Christmas that we barely have time to sit down and enjoy the beautiful moments we’re creating together with our loved ones. I don’t want to feel as if “it went by too fast” this year. I want to be able to seize the moment and enjoy this special time of the year without missing out on anything. I am eager to continue making memories with my family and I don’t think there’s anything more important than that… or anything that will take my attention from that. 🙂

But before Christmas is here, we certainly can divide a little time of our attention toward this newly-built home, right? Built by Altura Homes with interiors by Lauren Smyth and staging by Andi Marshall (recently featured here & here), this new-construction home is packed with simple ideas that you should take a look at, especially if you’re planning on building your dream home in the new year. Here, the designer shares some insights on this project:


“This was a Spring Parade Home that was featured here in Boise in a part of town that combines traditional, high-end suburban homes with a new demographic of young people or people from out of state so I wanted to take those two worlds and blend them together. I worked from the idea of traditional finishes and styles done in a modern way. I brought in familiar finishes like red brick, black and white buffalo-check and subway tile and mixed them with today’s color palette and styles. The install of the checkered pattern on the floors and shower wall in the powder bath is where this idea really shines. This home is modern yet familiar, “new meets old”, nostalgic while still being fresh, which is exactly what I was going for.”


Have a great time seeing this home and have an excellent week, my friends. It’s always a gift to have you here on Home Bunch!

    Really curious the length of your master bath cabinets from tower to tower, I love this design, but think we may not have enough room.

  4. Hi Lindsay,

    I don’t have any information on the dimensions but the builder or designer should be able to help you.

    Thank you,

    I’m curious about the mudroom wood bench top. What kind of wood and stain did you use? Thanks so much! I’ve been looking at this photo trying to match it for awhile!
