About seven years ago I started a new Sunday series on my blog called the Charming Home Series. The first year or two was filled with tours of fellow blogger homes. Many of them have become friends, and some have stopped blogging altogether. I took a little trip down memory lane and revisited some of those home tours. Today, I’m sharing some of those blogger home tours with you. There is so much I enjoy about each person’s home, so I’ll have to feature some of them again in an upcoming post.
Let’s start with the very first blogger home I featured back in April, 2014. Yes, you read that right. I’ve been featuring home tours every Sunday for almost seven years now. I started with my friend Dawn at Creative Cain Cabin. Her home is so unique with its wood-planked walls. A couple of years ago I found out she lives near my sister in Michigan! Dawn is also part of the Cozy Living Saturday series with me (come back this Saturday for that)! See her home tour here on my blog, and be sure to visit her at Creative Cain Cabin.
One of the more popular blogger home tours I featured is Jennifer of Willow Farmhouse. I was so saddened to find out she no longer blogs, but you can see her home tour on my blog. I love the wood trim throughout her house along with her vintage furnishings and vignettes.
A house that I’ve always admired is the sweet Idaho bungalow that belongs to Laurel at North End Loft. Laurel still has her site up but blogs sporadically. Her home is so quaint and colorful. I would live there in a heartbeat. Laurel has a great eye for design and makes the best use of space in her cozy home. It was such an honor to feature her.
Next up is a more contemporary home tour from Jenna Sue who has since remarried and moved. I imagine most of today’s homes have changed in many ways, with several bloggers having migrated to new houses and towns. You can visit Jenna Sue at Jenna Sue Designs. I love her neutral palette with a variety of textures.
Another blogger home tour that I love comes from Kim at Savvy Southern Style. Her blog was one of the first that I started reading. I was disappointed that she stopped blogging, but you can still see her gorgeous home decorating ideas on Instagram! Her sunroom has long been a favorite room of mine. I’m sure many of you remember her blog.
For something a little different, you might enjoy the home tour of Oliver and Rust. Her eclectic style is very tastefully executed and I love how she’s used vintage items in new ways. From her outdoor living spaces to her interiors, there’s plenty to admire. I especially love the whiskey barrel she transformed into a kitchen island.
If you’re a vintage lover like me, you’ll appreciate the thought and time that went into Q is for Quandie’s home tour. Linda is still blogging (yay!) and shares plenty of vintage projects and inspiration. Enjoy all her eye candy over at her blog. I can’t stop looking at her kitchen floor!
Those who like light and airy homes will enjoy Kristy’s romantic home tour over at Wick’s Nest. Kristy is one of the sweetest bloggers and her California style is breathtaking. You can follow her on Instagram, too and enjoy photos of her newest home.
One of the more popular blogger home tours featured here on Town and Country Living is Barbara’s home at 21 Rosemary Lane. The photo of her entryway went viral on Pinterest. Although her blog is still up, it looks like she hasn’t posted anything new since 2019.
Another traditional style home tour that I featured is from Home by Heidi. Her décor is light and bright. Although I’m obsessed with her French country kitchen, the rest of her house is beautiful, too. Heidi’s handiwork was recently published in the spring issue of Celebrate and Entertain magazine.
Last but certainly not least is a gorgeous, vintage farmhouse tour by Megan at Farmhouse 5540. I think I might have shed a tear when she told me she was going to stop blogging. At least you can still see her vintage style on Instagram.
I’ve been blogging for a little over 10 years now and have had the pleasure of featuring blogger home tours in addition to others. I can’t imagine giving up blogging any time soon, although I know that day will eventually come (later rather than sooner). I’ll share some more of the home tours that were first featured in my Charming Home Series in the weeks and months to come. It’s always fun for me to go back and look at older posts!
