Home tour from Driven by Decor

February 05, 2016

I am so excited to share this blogger with you today! I've admired her beautiful blog and home for some time -- Kris shares some great makeovers, decor ideas and DIY projects that I think you'll love. 

Kris blogs at Driven by Decor and her home is really a favorite of mine in blogland. She knows how to create interest with both contrast and neutral touches which I love. Her updates are totally doable and she hangs a mean gallery wall! :)

Let's take a tour around her house, shall we? This bathroom was transformed with a budget and yet again, the difference paint can make is mind-blowing:

Those walls are stenciled and you have to see the before to truly appreciate the difference. The majority of the changes happened from the tile up -- no huge DIY projects needed. 

Her office gallery wall is one of my favorites. You know I love the dark walls! But the art is the star here:

I think it's hard to get a gallery wall like this just right and I wouldn't change a thing on this one. Such a beautiful space! 

Another spot that I think is hard to get just right is the bed -- I love the look of a fluffy Pottery Barn bed and Kris shares how she created that here

The neutral tones in here are so soothing and pretty! I suddenly need a nap. 

Her fireplace recently underwent a makeover and the star of this one is that gorgeous tile:

She pulls together art and accessories so well and I love her use of natural items throughout her home. 

I loved this simple DIY throw idea with the pretty fringe: 
White slipcover furniture

Such a great idea to add some color or pattern to a space!

Her teen daughter's bedroom went from young with bright colors to a little more grown up subdued look, but still includes some fun details: 
Blue and white bedroom

I really like how she made over her basic closet doors too -- they look so much better and serve as an art display as well. 

And finally, but certainly not least (I had to stop somewhere!), I LOVE the neutral and classic touches in her dining room

That plate wall is gorgeous! As is everything else! 

I'm so thrilled to share Kris with you today -- isn't her home beautiful? There's so much more I didn't share so be sure to check her out here. Have a wonderful weekend!
