Our Home on Alice Lane

This is where it all began. We built this home over 8 years ago on the East Bench in Farmington, Utah. (I hesitate to show these pictures because my taste has evolved. I chose paint and finishes back when red and green were in their prime…)

The home has great architectural bones and a lot of charm. The steep roof pitches offered great volume and made the small footprints in each room seem grand, but still intimate. The finish work was bold and simple. We modeled it’s character after the homes built in the 1920’s.

The home in my heart is still a little home that hugs you when you walk in. I believe in the not-so-big house. I think something charming and welcoming but well-appointed is a great way to live!

So… take a gander at my first custom home… my design laboratory, if you will.

It shows that it is a custom home, the details, ceilings in particular, aren’t features typically seen in a spec home. I like a small home as well, cozy with just enough space! Janell

Oh wow! It’s beautiful. I am loving all the details: the letters on the blinds (is that vinyl? or how did you do that?), the white trim, the white kitchen, the bedspread in the guest room. I love pretty much everything. I’d love to see your house now.

I love that you shared this.. what an amazing + beautiful home! You can see the relation in your taste then, to the aesthetic of the store now. I agree on the not so ( huge )big home, smaller rooms are cozy, intimate and purposeful. xx

Thanks for sharing. Really love the lavender room…for one of your girls? Anyway, wish my home looked that great. The beams in the family/living room are amazing!

I agree–what a beautiful home! I loved the colors… you made them work, even if they aren’t what’s most popular now. Can I ask where you got the quilt/duvet in the guest room? I’ve been looking for something like that but haven’t had any luck.

So darling! Any way you’d share the name/brand of the paint in your entryway? So beautiful!

Love the kitchen! My sister directed me towards this website (she’s the creative one). Can you please tell me what type of granite counters are in this home. I’m looking to use olive green silestone, but I might change my mind if I knew your granite choice. Also can you send me a link for your white cabinets. Thank you so much!

I also am in love with the ‘Not So Big House’ theory. Refreshing to see it carried out so well locally! In my opinion your red and green exterior is a timeless combination. Thanks for sharing such a personal space.
