Home Tour: The Morrow’s Cottage-Style Ranch

March 6, 2013

Home tours are becoming one of my favorite things to share on this blog, and today we have a very special one! This is the lovely home of our sweet friends, Jay and Jeanette. J and J have just welcomed a sweet baby girl into the world and they were kind enough to let me photograph their house right before she got here! (Here’s the baby shower we had for her!) Jeanette has really lovely taste and has curated a lovely, welcoming home. Take a peek inside!

Family Room

Jeanette always says she’s attempting to give their ranch style home a cottage feel, I think she pulls it off, don’t you?

Dining Room

The dining room might be one of my favorite rooms in this whole house. The zinc top table! The chairs! The new built ins! My goodness.

This wall of special things is also a really neat piece to welcome you into the house. I always stop to see if they’ve added anything new… ticket stubs, photographs, postcards, frisbees, anything really. The wood came from the floorboards of their dear friends home, making it all the more meaningful.

Eat-in Kitchen

The cozy eat-in nook by the kitchen is another great space. Look at that light fixture! The shelves are a great place for Jeanette’s cookbooks and a few stylish trinkets. There are more than a few dachshund trinkets in the Morrow house!

And that’s not all! There were too many great rooms to share so I’ve broken it up into two parts.

    My husband and I have a small ranch home. I am so inspired by Jeannette’s home. Do you think she could share her paint colors?

    Hi Amy! Thank you for the kind words. We love our ranch layout, but it can be hard to give a home built in the 80’s the kind of character we like :). The bedrooms are Alexandria Beige and the grey throughout was a custom color. The trim and built-ins are Waterwheel Falls.

    Thank you! The tray is from Crate and Barrel, the pitcher is from Pottery Barn Outlet and the coat rack from Target. All about finding a deal :)

    Would love to know where the eat in kitchen light is from? Also I’m in love with the grey wall color, I know it’s custom but do you have any advice on how to get something similar?
