I stumbled upon Yellow Brick Home about a month ago and have been hooked ever since. Kim and Scott are DIY experts – a husband and wife duo from Chicago who have turned their (almost 130-year-old) house into a beautiful home with their own bare hands. They also run The Pet Shop and The Print Shop.
Simple, all-American and timeless, their home is full of hidden treasures and fun little details, topped off with a generous sprinkling of love and adorable dogs for good measure.
A few things that stand out to me most (apart from their clearly impeccable taste) are:
(1) the paint colours – sophisticated neutrals that are just different enough from the standard neutral wall colours to keep things interesting but still timeless. If I had to pick a favourite paint colour from their home, it would have to be Benjamin Moore’s Intense White used on their living room and bathroom walls; the soft warm tint keeps the rooms warm and inviting but still bright and fresh;
(2) the light fixtures – many of which are from Rejuvenation. Again, simple, timeless classics;
(3) the gorgeous headboards;
(4) the rugs; and
(5) the amazing mosaic honeycomb tiles on the bathroom floor (which they also DIY’d themselves!).
