Nesting with Grace ~ Charming Home Tour

I first discovered decorating blogs about 4 years ago and once that happened, my interest in decorating magazines waned. I found bloggers produced more content and captivated my attention more frequently. I’ve read so many blogs now, that it’s always a delight when I discover someone new, or rediscover a blog I’ve lost touch with. Such is the case with today’s charming home tour … Nesting with Grace. I was on last year’s Holiday House Walk with Brooke and came across her blog again via Instagram. I love the charm and practicality of her beautiful Connecticut home.

Country Style Living RoomBrooke recently moved across country, from Utah to Connecticut. She and her family planted new roots just a mile from the ocean and she quickly (and I do mean quickly) turned her Cape Cod house into a cozy home.  Her living room oozes cottage charm (you know I’m a fan of the blue and white color scheme!) and looks so inviting.


Cottage KitchenI’m truly amazed how quickly she’s brushed her style throughout her home and have enjoyed reading about her journey from the west side of the continent to the east. She didn’t even see her current home in person until the actual move date. Hubby did a great job picking out a house Brooke would grow to love, and she set to work putting her decorative stamp on it.


Cottage Kitchen in ConnecticutThe patterned floor in Brooke’s kitchen adds a lot of personality and aesthetic appeal.


Upstairs Family RoomThe upstairs family room plays double duty. Behind the conversational area for adults is a play area for the kids. The couch blocks the view of the kids’ toys on the far side of the room. Genius!


Nautical BathroomA nautical bathroom hints at sandy beaches and ocean views outside, just a mile from home.


Master Bedroom in Dark GrayDark walls create a cozy vibe in the master bedroom, where an upholstered bed takes center stage.


Cottage Style Girls BedroomYou’ll find more cottage appeal in the girls bedroom. I love the big buffalo check comforters at the foot of the beds, and each girl has her own overhead lamp for reading.


Citrus Vinegar Water for CleaningVisit Brooke at Nesting with Grace where you’ll enjoy her creativity and resourceful, like this citrus vinegar water she uses for natural cleaning. I have to give this a try!  I’m sure it makes the entire house smell fabulous!

She’s made great use of every square inch of her “new” home!

  1. I just LOVE that patterned (tile?) floor! I’m seeing that more and more, especially bathrooms, and it adds nice interest to utilitarian spaces without putting down rugs or painting wood. The patterns feel very Scandinavian. Like modern stylized graphics of florals or simple quilt patterns. Beautiful home! Thanks for sharing!
