Feature Friday: Seeking Lavender Lane

Happy Friday friends! I love saying that, another weekend is in store. I love the weekends when Mark is home.

Today I’ve got a great Before and After story for you. Meet Deb from Seeking Lavender Lane. She and her husband sold the home they had lived in and fixed up, opting for another even more challenging fixer upper that was a foreclosure. Deb shared with me a little about herself:

Deb and her family moved into their new renovated home this past December. Deb being a home blogger, wanted to think outside the box when they were ready for their new house. They took a foreclosure house and created a new floor plan and addition to create their dream home. A white Farmhouse exterior and French Farmhouse style interior with a collection of new furniture, DIY projects, upcycling furniture, Facebook market place finds, and antiques. Their home is still a work in progress but after 6 months of adding their finishing touches to the space, this is her current home tour. Not to mention Deb and her family lived in a camper during their 6 month renovation on property. See more about that here.

You’re going to love Deb’s renovation. Here’s the Before shot of the house when they bought it. They really had a vision to bring this house up to date!

And here’s the After! I was really blown away when I dug into Deb’s new home and saw the before and after shots. It’s truly amazing! As you can see, they built up on the garage and changed the exterior elevation with the peaked roof.

I just love this welcoming porch.

Deb’s attention to detail in everything she chose is really impressive too. I loved seeing all the projects they’ve competed so far. She’s still working on the house, but here’s where it is so far.

Beautiful front door. Deb gave me some resources that I’ll share at the bottom of the post.

Door color: Booth Bay by Ben Moore (beautiful color!)

Deb relaxing on the front porch.

Inside the front door. Deb chose a beautiful plank flooring and she added some beautiful tile choices to really make their home stand out. This is a tile rug by the front door.

Deb has such a great eye for vintage details.

Open concept family room looking into kitchen.

Fireplace makeover.

And the magnificent kitchen that Deb created for her European farmhouse feel. Love it!

You’ll see different things in the pics, since Deb has been working on these spaces. This is the current and new bar stools.

Deb added arches in the house for a more historical feel. I love arches and if we ever build a house, we’re having arches.

Stove with backsplash and hood. I love that the kitchen has a very simple yet elegant fee.

Open shelves in one corner.

That island is huge!

These cabinets are so gorgeous and I love the color too.

Deb’s kitchen definitely doesn’t look cookie cutter at all. She really make it personal!

Don’t you love those grids in the windows. This is looking into the laundryroom/mudroom.

I didn’t see another shot of this room, but Deb opted for concrete floor tiles in gray and white. I love a good checkerboard pattern. Looks like a great laundry room!

Main area dining room.

I love these doors too, these are the doors I would choose if I was building. Deb just completed this wainscot project in the dining room and painted it all.

Gorgeous dining space.

Of course, I love her lantern over the table. This pic was before she did the wainscot.

A cute rustic cabinet looks so cute all styled up.

A mudroom wall with hooks for storage.

Moody office space.

And the master bath renovation is still in progress but this is it so far.


Deb’s daughter’s room.

She did a great job in this room creating such a warm space for her daughter. I hope you enjoyed this tour of Deb’s home at Seeking Lavender Lane. I’m going to be following along to see what she’s up to next! I love this home renovation and knew you would too!

    so many design elements that I like – and need to emulate. Excellent flair and sense of pattern and style. Such a remarkable transformation. Thanks for the photos, Rhoda.

  2. Love how they did the renovations. I would love to see the floor plan drawn out.

    • HI, Lynne, check out her blog under the home tour. Pretty sure there is a floor plan drawn out.

  3. Wow! Love everything about it!

  4. What a nice amazing renovation! Hard to believe it is the same house as the before. Deb is as pretty as her house!

  5. Beth Mayberry says

    Such a beautiful home! It’s difficult to believe it’s the same home they purchased. What vision! I would love to know the source for the front door. Finding beautiful / well-made front doors is not easy to do. Thanks for sharing, Rhoda!
