This backyard for @kismet_house showcases so much of what we love moditerranean style.
Coined by the woman who perfected the style, @joannagaines, moditerranean yards feature clean lines, neutral colors, and cool-toned plants, like olive trees, rosemary, and agave (a Mediterranean plant!). The modernness of Moditerranean strips down a more traditional Mediterranean look and feel to its most simple and beautiful elements. We love using greige hardscaping in Moditerranean yards—pea gravel, cement, and bluestone—and styling the space with a mix of old and new decor in woods, stone (like this incredible fireplace!) and metals.
WE DID IT!!! Today we knocked out the first half of our DIY minimal and modern landscaping!! It was SO HOT outside today, but we pushed through! We were drenched in sweat, but ended the day dancing in the front yard with the kids during an afternoon shower! It 👏🏻 felt 👏🏻 amazing to get outside and do some good ole manual labor! .
You can find the entire blog post and a million after photos at www.thisminimalhouse.com!!! Just click the link in our bio!
I can’t decide what my favorite part is...the timbers, the black mulch, or those delicious rocks!!! What’s your fave?!?

Something Ill miss about this space once were able to actually renovate it in 2040, is this photo-ledge. It has been so fun! I would highly recommend adding one to a room for dimension and layering!! Do you have one in a space? Hope you all are enjoying your weekend! Cheers Homies!
Goodies tagged and linked in bio, Also @sixpennyhome is having a memorial sale till May 29th! Its 20% off, $1000 purchase or more! We have the Gabriel Chair in Cracked Pepper! .
Who’s ready for a dinner with friends? Since we can’t get together around the same table, here’s a dining space that is not only dreamy but also comes with guaranteed good company. Check out this dining room by my lovely friend @victoriasturup not only does she have an absolutely beautiful home she’s also an über talented pillow maker with some seriously pretty pillows for sale in her shop!
So invite yourself to the dinner party, go and check out this dining space (and the rest of her beautiful home!) and check in next week to see who’s place we are heading to for dinner next Sunday
It’s done! This is probably one of the more plain rooms I’ve done lately and I’m ok with it. The walls are legit crazy with the weirdest vintage finishes and it’s pretty small... so we kept it simple and added plants. 13 plants to be exact. Should I we bet if Mr. Thomson is pleased time be surrounded by the plants 😂? I’ll share a little video of the room in my stories because it’s so small I couldn’t capture it all in one photo 😂
I had so much fun today putting wallpaper up in our bedroom! I love walking in here now and seeing this view, but I almost didn’t share this post because this space isn’t done, I still don’t have a duvet cover or throw pillows, and it’s not perfectly styled. I started feeling inadequate sharing it even though it really does make me so happy, do you ever feel that way?
We decided to add a few things to this tiny corner in the dining room. I like it (I think)! Also this picture isn’t crooked our house is crooked, which makes hanging things straight forever a challenge. 😂

I spent the day organizing and putting away baby clothes and tidying up the house. There is still a ton to do tomorrow, but I’m hoping I can have things cleared away and clean for a less stressful week. This is just one of my favorite corners 🥰
I’ve been working non-stop on house projects all weekend, including finishing up this coat closet turned mini mudroom that I started last month. I was able to complete the entire project for $110! Swipe to see the Transformation.
Anyone else doing house projects on this long weekend? I can’t wait to release tomorrow.

GUEST ROOM: It's not perfect, but it's not bad for a one day makeover and everything except the duvet we already had! (Swipe to see what it looked like friday) We had an appraiser come out to the house today so we've spent the past 4 days basically staging the house as if we were selling and knocked out SO much on our to do list and it feels really really good. I'll share more in stories 😊
I love my new hat wall!!!! Easy peasy and just warmed up this space! I changed up the bookshelves a bit too and loving a different view for me 🤣 .... wait my daughter changed up my shelves.. #loveyougirl 🌸 What LITTLE thing have you done to your space that made you happy lately!?? I have been embracing the little things more than ever and working on the beauty of being patient and still!

Little upstairs foyer update 🌱Swipe right to see when we moved in. Then swipe again to see this foyer has been most of the year. It just felt like it needed a little something.
I still am figuring my own home preferences out while letting the style of this home inform those ideas. (And wishing I got a degree in interior design and not psychology 🙄). I was afraid putting wallpaper up here might be “too much” - but I think I like it. I feel like I am trying to figure out the balance of fun and color - while not turning this place into a funhouse. 😂
Do you feel like you have figured out your home style preferences?
Yay the sun came out! We are soaking it up!! Might venture into town to get ice cream 🍦🍦🍦

Went to explore a local plant nursery today! We got this cute yucca plant for our outdoor space. Can’t wait to come back here again! Are you a plant person? Where’s your favorite place to get plants? Let us know! Hope you all have a great holiday weekend. 🙌
I made another shelf styling video for you guys with specific tips. Swipe to watch- (don’t judge me too harsh for my outfit or hair🤭).
The thing about shelf styling is I think people overthink it. Keep it easy on yourself by only putting items up you truly want to see on display. Keep it a few simple colors. Stagger heights, vary textures and always add a plant or two. That’s it!
I don’t mind living in a small home ( and when I say small, I mean 1300 SQFT with six humans & a cat ) but the only thing that bothers me about living in a small space is not being able to photograph it properly. Seems pretty petty in the mix of it all, but when you’re a home blogger, it’s the biggest deal.
What’s one thing you wish you could change about your home?
Happy Sunday with this spontaneous snapshot. I love to come downstairs in the morning to this wonderful light.
Still busy over here prepping the party.
Wish you all a lovely day☀️.

Both my mama AND my oldest daughter are coming and I can’t wait to squeeze my two best girls today!! I may have waited til the very last second to get my guest room ready, but the anticipation and preparation is one of the things I love best about hosting! I think little, intentional touches go a long way; Fresh cut flowers & plants, water by the bed, WiFi password visible (thank you @southernmill.calligraphy for creating this one for us!), an assortment of soaps & toiletries, and fresh laundered bedding.
What makes you feel special as a guest in someone’s home?
the next few days are gonna be scorchers and im not excited about it 😰 i find im way less productive and more prone to feeling down on those days. if i could find somewhere to live where the weather was spring all year round i’d be a happy camper...any ideas? 🌿🌸😉
Well, everything is almost planted. Friday,I finished the main garden planting the rest of our peppers, tomatoes and corn. Then yesterday we got the pumpkin patch laid out. I got some of my cut flower seeds planted and all of my trellised gourd seeds planted to. Soon it will be time to sit and enjoy the beauty of all the work we’ve been doing this spring. #fullandsimplelife

YOU GUYS.... WE DID IT!!!! Ok I won’t lie I did nothing to this wall! But my husband and our daughters did, knocked it completely out!
I didn’t help because Myfriend is in town and we were doing something else, but the wall is down and it feels great! •
I bet you are all wondering,”what’s next”? Am I right? Well next thing on our list of things we have to do are:
I’m happy to report my house is back together and I’ve never felt more at peace. Now let’s finish this damn bathroom so we can all move on 🕺🏻

Backyard vibes after the rain this weekend! ⛈
1 914 hours ago
... und wieder mal hat sich gezeigt: Einfach losfahren und wenig erwarten lohnt sich. Ich hätte es mir auch bei Dauerregen gemütlich gemacht, mich unter meiner Decke verkrochen, das im Wind wehende Seegras beobachtet, mich von den Wellen hypnotisieren lassen. Und nun sitzen wir hier mit leichtem Sonnenbrand, freuen uns über das lang ersehnte Wochenende, das nun schon fast vorbei ist. Manchmal lassen wir uns schnell verunsichern, hören Warnungen von anderen Reisenden und bleiben sicherheitshalber Zuhause. Könnte ja regnen, könnte ja zu voll werden, könnte ... Dazu haben wir diesmal bewusst nein gesagt. Nein zu Bedenken! Losfahren und genießen. 😊 Irgendwo findet sich ein Plätzchen - ganz bestimmt 🧡
Happy ☀️day! Unfortunately the forecast is looking pretty cloudy but no rain is expected 🙌🏻 We may even try to make it out on the boat later today✨

I truly believe happiness is handmade for a few different reasons. Not only is making something yourself one of the most joyful things to do, it is also incredibly warming knowing that other people truly love your work and want to have your pieces in their home. 🥰
Another reason I believe happiness is handmade is due to the amazingly kind & talented friends I’ve made through this little creative journey of mine. I feel truly thankful that I have attracted such supportive & likeminded people to throw ideas at & get advice from. 💫✨

Adding a few colors: something white, something green and something neutral completes the nordik jungle look. 🌿

Exterior design time!
I’ve been painting allll the exterior trim on our house (for the last 1,000 years) and decided to revisit my Southern roots a bit by adding a touch of “haint blue” under the porch roof. Painting various shades of blue on your porch roof is an old Southern tradition (Google it to see why they do it 😉) and I also happen to think it’s beautiful! This particular formula of blue is something I mixed myself using a few different paints I had on hand. White paint is Behr Pure White.
*Progress Photo* Are you (like me) intimidated by house projects? I may have cried a few tears over having to figure out how to cut angles turned that job over to David. We make a good team. He does the hard stuff. I do the easy stuff, and together we can complete a task. This little wall still needs nail holes filled and another coat of paint, but it feels so good to be finishing up a home improvement project, however small it may be. .
It’s officially a VACATION ZONE ⚠️🌴😌 Once I finished this cozy corner I knew I needed a basket pendant to finish the space! I linked this shade and other basket pendant options on my @liketoknow.it page! http://liketk.it/2PeYt #liketkit#LTKhome@liketoknow.it.home

Hiya friends! How is the week going for you guys so far? It’s been raining here for the last couple days, but it cleared up for a bit today and I was able to get out for a nice walk🙌🏼 My fave part of the day is getting out for a walk while listening to a book! I finished my book today though😢, and am wondering what I should read next! Have you guys read any good books lately?! If you have any book recommendations for me...leave them here!!!👇🏼👇🏼
Ps...this rainy day was made so much brighter by styling this new Hathaway rug from @loloirugs 🥰🥰 I can’t even with these colors! My seven year old told me today that if I love it so much, then why don’t I just marry it?! I guess kids still say that🤨🙄Haha well...just call me Mrs. Hathaway then😂😂😂
