Feature Friday: Shades of Blue Interiors

Hi friends!  I’m back today featuring another really talented blogger, Rachel with Shades of Blue Interiors.  She’s a mama of 3 and lives in a suburban St. Louis home, which she and her hubby have really renovated and made better.  She’s got a sweet vintage style and the girl can build too.  There’s a lot of talent in blogland with these DIYer’s and all the projects they do.  Rachel has such a good eye for styling too, so enjoy her beautiful home tour.

They did a remodel on their exterior, adding chunky cedar beams and painting the brick.

They also added those brick pavers on their front porch which is just gorgeous!  We’d like to do a similar treatment to our back patio area and this is so pretty.

I just love the curb appeal now!

Entry bench styling, so cute and cottagey.

Rachel does a great job with her vignettes and creating a mood.

And she built this table!  Way to go, Rachel.

Sitting room with a vintage piano that Rachel painted.

The family room with Ikea sofas.

Dining room

I just love how Rachel’s house is so collected, warm, and welcoming.

The kitchen was all DIY’d by Rachel and her hubby, including building the island.

So cute and casual.

The master bedroom features a beautiful Eastlake bed.

A really pretty farmhouse bathroom makeover.

Rachel has a daughter and two boys, so a busy mama. And such cute children’s spaces!

Rachel did this wood treatment on the closet doors herself. So pretty!

Her outdoor spaces are so inviting too. They’ve done an outstanding job with this home, don’t you think?

Look at this wood table that drops down in the backyard.  Very efficient use of space.

What a beautiful home and patio area!  I hope you enjoyed this Feature Friday as much as I did. Hop on over and say hello to Rachel at Shades of Blue Interiors!
