Charming Home Tour ~ Junk Chic Cottage

Today is a special day because I’m featuring Kris over at Junk Chic Cottage!

She’s one of the first bloggers I started following and I love her white palette.

Thinking it couldn’t get any better, I was then exposed to her gardens and oh my!!

It was like a flower explosion over there and I was in heaven.

So please join me on this special day in touring Kris’ home and garden …

Blue Painted Porch Floor at Junk Chic CottageKris’ front porch with its newly painted blue floor is welcoming and colorful.

She has the most amazing green thumb I’ve ever seen …

you’ll see more of her gorgeous flowers at the end of this post.


Shabby Chic White Living RoomStep inside and you’ll see a sea of dreamy whites throughout Kris’ charming home.

Kris adds a lot of textural elements in her rooms, which is a clever way to add depth to white rooms.


Shabby Chic Dining Room with Farmhouse TableKris’ dining room is light and airy with plenty of sunshine flowing in.

Ruffles on the end chairs add warmth and whimsy to this space.


Chippy White Dresser serves as sideboard in shabby chic dining roomA chippy white dresser cleverly serves as a dining room sideboard.

Beautiful white ironstone graces the open shelves,

while a shutter and birdhouse create visual interest.


White kitchen at Junk Chic CottageKris recently gave her kitchen an update. I love her use of shelves!

The wood counter top and floors add warmth to this beautiful room.


White cottage style kitchenPretty script fabric covers bar stool seats. I love “script” anything!


Makeshift cabinet in cottage style kitchenI just adore this cabinet Kris created in her kitchen space. Such ingenuity!

It’s both pretty and practical. Animal figurines lend a farmhouse vibe.


Shabby Chic Office SpaceEven Kris’ office space is beautifully decorated with white and architectural elements.

What a pretty place to work, don’t you think?


Cottage Style Laundry Room The laundry room at Junk Chic Cottage is quaint and charming with a ruffled skirt.

And have you ever seen a more adorable door?

I wouldn’t mind doing laundry in a charming room like this one!


Dreamy White BedroomMore ruffles make an appearance in one of the bedrooms.

The buffalo check comforter repeats the linen color in the ottoman and pillow.

I can’t imagine having anything but Sweet Dreams in this room!


Guest Cottage sign in guest room at Junk Chic CottageAh, this beautiful bed with its wrought iron gate for a headboard!

The Guest Cottage sign makes it clear this is the guest bedroom.

Kris added a beautifully ruffled French pillow to the space. Just lovely!


Chaise Lounge in Backyard GardenBack outside, we’re greeted with an explosion of pink!

A gorgeous garden lounger slipcover adds to the romance of Kris’ garden.

I don’t think I’ve seen petunias as lush and pretty as Kris’.


Garden Corner at Junk Chic CottageFinally, a riot of color awaits on the corner of the deck.

Again, the most amazing flowers in happy colors!
