Feature Friday: Caroline on Design

Happy Friday and the 4th of July weekend!  It’s a hot one here in Georgia and yesterday we rode our bikes to the lake and listened to live music and watched fireworks from our little town of Acworth, so that’s a pretty sweet way to celebrate our patriotic holiday.

Today’s Feature Friday is a new to me gal from Instagram I saw on there, Caroline on Design. Her name is Carrie for short and she has a pretty blog and Instagram account sharing her newly built Craftsman home in Illinois. Craftsman style homes are some of my very favorite and her home is beautiful. She also shares a lot about the building process to is a good resource if any of you are building a new home.

Isn’t this gorgeous? I love the exterior of Craftsman homes.

The mix of board and batten siding, shingle siding, and stone is hard to beat. So lovely to look at!

These double front doors are beautiful too as is that little cutie pie sitting at the door.

Inside is a spacious and open floor plan with lots of beautiful woodworking details.

I love all the molding used throughout.

And the runner on the stairs is so pretty too.

I spy pretty grasscloth wallpaper in the dining room, always a nice choice. Notice the details on the window trim, so pretty.

Her kitchen is magnificent and spacious too.

My favorite type cabinets are Shaker style, love them.

What a nice kitchen!

Love a wallpapered accent in the bathroom.

And here’s Carrie, working in her office space.

Back of their Craftsman home.

Stop on by Carrie’s blog, Caroline on Design and take a look at all she offers, I think you’ll enjoy her posts about home building!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home Rhoda! I showed it to my husband and he said “Let’s build it ”❤️

  2. This is a really beautiful home & nicely decorated. It’s nice to see something that isn’t farmhouse as seen on TV so often. Really enjoyed seeing this one today.

  3. Such a beautiful feature! It is so light and spacious, yet full of charm! I really enjoy all of the molding throughout the home.

  4. Beautiful home! Would you mind sharing the paint color used in the kitchen/great room area? It’s a beautiful neutral and I’d love to know what it is!
    Love the Friday home tours, I look forward to them each week and this one is stunning! Have a great weekend!
