Meet Jessica, with Stay at Home-ista, a Harvard-trained architect with a flair for design, who designed her dream home with her hubby, who is also a Harvard grad. Smart much?!
Well, you can see from these pics that this dynamic duo knows what they are doing. They designed and built their dream home, a 4 year endeavor that certainly paid off. Perched on a hill in the Bay area of California, this is one beautiful dream home. Jessica is now a stay at home mom with 3 kiddos, but she loves design, as you can see by her beautifully decorated home.
I’ve been to San Francisco and the hills, they are abundant, so it’s no wonder that Jessica’s dream home is perched high on a hill. But, the views? Amazing!
Their deck takes in a full sweep of vistas, wouldn’t you love to sit out here for a spell?
Inside the foyer, a grand piano is the focal point.
A coffered ceiling in the family room adds lots of architectural details. OK, truth time! It’s homes like this one that gets me a wee bit envious. But, no matter the size or stateliness of a house, it’s all about what we do with them, isn’t it? And I’ll make mine as homey as I can get it.
She loves blues and has brought in many blues accented with orange. Beautiful view to the dining room and then into the kitchen beyond. This home is amazing!
The dining room is jaw-droppingly gorgeous with the striped chairs.
But, the show stopper in the entire house has to be the kitchen. Can you tell I’m on a kitchen watching journey these days? These white custom Shaker cabinets really got my attention. I’m happy to see my Shaker obsession is in good company with some of the finest kitchen renovations in blogland.
Jessica has white marble and marble tile on her backsplash, which is so classic and beautiful. Look out those windows at the view beyond. When you’re in the Bay Area, you are going to see lots of pretty blue water.
The stove hood is stunning too. This kitchen is a dream.
Jessica has some serious storage in her space for sure.
Let’s move on to the library. Lots of storage here too.
Upstairs hallway is calming and pretty.
The master bedroom in blues as well.
Daughter’s room in pink and green, so cute.
Her son’s room is colorful and happy.
And the new baby born last year has a pretty room too.
Jessica, you are a fabulous architect and designer and should be so proud of your beautiful home. It was a pleasure to take the tour and to see those fantastic views beyond the windows. What a dream home, indeed. Thanks for letting me share it all with my readers and I hope you’ll go over and say hello to Jessica. She’s one of the nicest bloggers too!
