Today we are sharing Amber Freidel’s cute home tour with you guys! We are totally on board with her peach and blue color palette and cozy vibes. “My husband, Jesse, and I along with our three children, live in a quintessential little place called Geneva, in Illinois, right at the end of the Chicago train line. We moved into our home four years ago this month! We had been living in the sweetest little apartment, but with our second child on the way, we knew it was time to find a house… and so the hunt began. We knew how amazing it would be to live in Geneva, but never thought we’d find something in our price range! But one day we found THE house, in the perfect spot and the perfect neighborhood. It was a short sale (which is the most misleading name because it’s the longest ordeal), and three months later we found ourselves the happy owners of our very own fixer upper!! It had renters for months before, so practically everything needed love!!

“One thing that has helped me the most with being cohesive in my decorating was Elsie’s post on a whole house plan/color scheme. That gave me such a vision to plan the colors we love and work within that palette. It’s amazing how much freedom that gives you! My and Jesse’s favorite color is… you guessed it! Blue! Keaton’s (the eldest) favorite color is mint, and Shaun’s (our middle child) is peach. Rosie, our youngest, is still deciding. So that fairly quickly became our whole house color scheme with a dose of yellow and lots of copper & gold!
“I’d say our house style is a colorful take on classic modern. I love me some good thrifting and pieces with history, but also love mixing in the new to create a homey-peaceful vibe.
“After we moved our bedroom to the first floor which had no closets (hello, old house), I created some copper racks to hold our clothes and just started an Etsy shop to sell them.Chair, Desk (painted), and Lamp/Target.

HI DARLINGS! Ok, so I guess I am a little bias but this jumpsuit is amazing, lol. I knew after I designed it that it would release in the summer, although it is a pre-fall pattern, so I knew I would be making a cropped version of my jumpsuit for the summer months. I also […]read more
Every summer when I was a kid we’d pack up the car at the end of August and head to Maryland’s Eastern Shore for week’s vacation. It was a glorious time spent jumping waves, making sand castles, and eating Maryland crabs until our lips burned only to cool them off with sweet ice cream on…read more
