Bright, Warm, Peaceful and Eclectic 1800's Kentucky Farmhouse

Introducing the beautiful 1800's farmhouse beauty owned by Jess + Dave and their pets Conway cat, Burrito cat and Dolly dog. Jess owns Dollface Brows & Beauty, and I have sat in her chair for years now getting to know her. We connect on many levels, especially the dynamic evolution of owning a small business. She had mentioned to me that her home never felt finished -- something I've definitely felt from time to time. When you put all your energy into your business (aka your baby) there's not a lot of time left for making your home the exact way you want it to be and it can feel incredibly overwhelming. And in their case, Dave works from home, so for him, he was experiencing a space that never felt right on a daily basis, yet never had the time to conquer the overwhelming task of building the house out to completely fit their needs.

J + D wanted their space to feel organized and peaceful but eclectic and collected at the same time. We wanted some spaces to feel bold and interesting ala the dark blue built-in shelves. We wanted it to feel personal and warm so we primarily used only the accessories they currently owned. We wanted it to feel light and airy so we had everything freshly painted white and used light colored furniture. We redid their stairs to look original to the house and then did a fun patterned runner to fit the inhabitants personalities. We updated the kitchen with tile and open shelving. We redid their dining room so they could host a larger number of guests. We reused their heirloom furniture in unexpected ways like using a table from D's family and added a vintage hutch on top so he had a fresh new workspace with lots of natural light.

We loved being able to create a warm, livable and inspiring space for this family and are so grateful they trusted us to do it! And also, thank you to Apartment Therapy for sharing their home with the world!
