Would you mind sharing the name of the artist?

We used 2 different colors of beige on the main floor that actually look very, very similar. The front hall uses Valspar’s Cincinnatian Hotel Hannaford, and the hearth room (where the coat hooks are) uses Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray. The dining room/kitchen is Olive #2 from Laura Ashley’s paint line at Lowes (so it’s Valspar paint).

Very beautiful, being from Illinois,I love seeing Midwest Homes featured!

Actually, not so much the computer, but my phone. My main office is based in Oakland, CA, and so they’re 3 hrs behind where I am. Therefore I usually find myself checking my work email on my phone periodically in the evenings, and then feel super guilty when I notice the kids watching me :(

I especially like how Sarah used being part of this series as an opportunity to fall in love with her home (I think a lot of us are secretly doing the same thing!). So many great insights.

I love the teddy bear drummer, too–made me laugh out loud. The sketches of the kids are beautiful, Lucy looks awesome (great photo of her napping on the sofa!), and I’m going to put a subway tile backsplash in the kitchen any minute….

There are so many fantastic RUGS in this house! And so many wonderful color and pattern combinations. Oscar’s room is _the bomb_. The drum set with the teddy bear, with the little bookshelves in the background, was enough cuteness to make my head explode.

Thanks for the great line: “I think you have to freak out every once in a while…”. Amen.

And as a former Hoosier, I have to tell you your post made me homesick.

Thank you! for a great post!

I actually teach from home. My kids (5 and 3) go to preschool MWF. We’ve got a wonky set-up, like I handle pick up and drop off on MW (and work at Panera or the local library while they are at school) and my mom drops off on Friday and my husband picks up. T/Th they spend the mornings at my mom’s house, when I have actual live teaching classes) and they come home to nap in the afternoons (when I can still get work done). I’m usually pretty worthless at work from 3-5 each day, so I try to combat that with getting up early and working before they wake up.

While I love the fact that I can work from home, I hate the fact that my kids see me on the computer so much. I just hope they know that I’m doing legit work and not “looking at pretty pictures” all day!!

We lived there for 5 years while my husband was doing his residency. What a secret gem the city is. So much we miss…

I think you’re referring to the living room (with the bookshelves and sectional, right? If not just let me know…). I used Valspar’s Winter in Paris after about a million other samples. I was looking for a blue/gray/green, got tired of trying so many colors, and grabbed a gallon of it on a whim. It looks like either of those 3 colors depending on the light, which I love.

It’s a great reminder that sometimes just shifting (or editing) our perspective a little can lead to a much bigger change in how we feel. Thank you, Sarah!
