Home Tour: so many sweet friends!

I clearly love home decor. I love snooping into people's adorable houses and looking for inspiration in little places. It's especially fun when the home belongs to a group of girls that I respect so greatly. This lovely little house holds Morgan, Katie, Beth, and Grace. Each of their style is so different and represents their personalities so well- precious! (PS some of you may remember Beth from her engagement pictures a few weeks ago!)

Coming into their living room, you just feel so cozy and welcome! I love the window (backed in fabric) and the frames (backed in chicken wire) SO much! With burlap bows on the frame corners of course! (look carefully!) They did a really good job of pulling this room together with many different colors and textures!

On the other side of the room, they have this cute welcoming message made with burlap and several different fabrics! 

Grace made these placemats with her wonderful sewing skills (something you'll see more of in Part Two of their home tour!) The roses in the bowl are dried and leftover from the wonderful engagement party that these girls threw for Beth right after her Spring Break engagement. I love the vintagey, sentimental look of it!) 

FUN FACT: Remember me mentioning a shutter in my own room tour? Katie's is identical! We bought them together and it was so cool to see what she did with hers. I love the use of hooks and truthfully I may give mine a makeover this summer and do the same thing, just because it's so wonderfully cute!
Love the use of the lace scarf here! So cute and original!
This is Morgan's room. I somehow lost my overall picture of this room, which is rather disappointing. You're missing out on a really fun floral chair. But moving on, I love the classic look of this room!
This nightstand represents sweet Morgan so well, it's filled with encouragement and study! I love that she wrote a scripture on just plain white paper and framed it. Also gotta love her Target candle. I am on a major candle kick lately. What is your favorite candle? (but really, leave this information in a comment, I'd love to know!)

Here's something that is so specific to college decor, the things you are involved in are shown all over your room! I love that Morgan wanted a daily reminder of the things she experienced during her mission trip to Argentina. This is such an awesome daily reminder to live missionaly! Think about making something like this to record some of your college memories! 

I legitimately want Morgan's handwriting for my own. I love it so much! This was such a good use of the window. Because so many college girls use old windows, it's really fun to see the different uses. Remember Susannah's? And mine?

 Please ignore how badly I photographed this room. I'm getting the hang of indoor photogs, yall! :) I think Katie's room might be the perfect place. Her bed always looks that perfect, by the way! 

Here again with the windows! Katie made hers a small curtain out of vintage handkerchiefs. I love it so much!
  I love how fun this dresser is, completely redone. It's so amazing what you can do to some old furniture!

 There are so many fun details in here I'll just let you absorb them all! 

 Here is one project that I directly copied from Katie. This is just a framed piece of burlap. You can write on the frame with a dry erase marker and there you have it- a fancy shmancy dry erase board! So wonderful! 



I'm so in love with this burlap bunting!

Grace's room shows her bright personality so well!

 Grace recently ran a full marathon! She is running in honor of her sweet sister in heaven, it is awesome to hear about the inspiration she is to those around her. I love that she has all her signs of encouragement and bibs on her wall!

Again, Grace is all about reminders of the great things she's gotten to take part in in college, check out all her camp pictures!
 
 This house has so many good uses of burlap! :)

 I creeped on these precious onesies that were sitting on Grace's sewing table (not pictured). She made them herself!


 This is the wall outside Beth's room. The crayon art is for her future classroom!

 Again with the windows :)



 There is evidence of Beth being an education major all over her room! I love the children's book pages under the glass of her desk!

 Are you a fan of Today's Letters? Beth has the typewriter from their letterhead in her room. Yes, the actual one. She knows the sweet Loerke's personally!




The last few pictures are filled with things that were all made by Beth herself. Soak up that inspiration people! :)


NOTE: If you are in the College Station area and are willing to let me photograph your home before you leave for summer, PLEASE shoot me a Facebook message! (there is a link on the top right side of the blog!)
