With all of the images that I share of my home here on Worthing Court, it can be difficult to tell what the actual house layout is.
Today I’m excited to be joining several of my blogging friends for the Flow Of Home Tour hosted by my friend Jennifer of Town & Country Living, which gives me the perfect opportunity to talk about one of my favorite subjects! Be sure to scroll to the bottom to see more tours. I’ll be adding links to more throughout most of this week, so you’ll want to be sure to check back!
We bought this house a little over 5 years ago and completely remodeled the interior! Many of the changes were cosmetic, but a couple of the rooms we all but taken down to the studs.
Settle back with your favorite beverage because this is a picture heavy post! You can see the before and afters of all of the rooms that we remodeled (and have been decorated) by clicking HERE.
Let’s start at the most logical place, which is the front porch. Our home has a wide and deep, Southern front porch, that I enjoy decorating for every season!
The front door opens right up into the foyer, which has a stairway and entries going into two different areas.
This overhead view of the foyer will give you a little better perspective of where the doorways lead to.
If you take the wide doorway to your immediate left (after you enter the door), you’ll go straight into the office. Before we remodeled, our current office was originally this home’s living room. We didn’t need a living room, but we did need an office!
It’s pretty obvious from looking at the above image, that the doorway at the other end of our office leads right into the dining room.
Painting my dining room furniture was super scary, but I’m SO glad that I stepped outside of my comfort zone!
As you enter the dining room, from the office, if you were to take an immediate right, you would enter the kitchen and breakfast area.
The kitchen was one of the rooms that we completely ripped everything out of. I have zero experience with kitchen design, but I’m completely happy with the end result!
Our kitchen is one long room with the breakfast area located at the far end. We love all of the morning light that pours through the bay window!
From the breakfast room, you have your choice of going two different directions. One leads to the laundry room (not pictured), the powder room and on out to one of my favorite spots – the screen porch.
Going the other direction leads into our family room, but let’s take a really quick peek at the screen porch first. The swing was a birthday gift a couple of years ago and I have no problem whatsoever wiling away an afternoon there!
Now, let’s walk back into the house and go through the opposite side of our breakfast room, which leads you into the family room.
Our fireplace was originally red brick, with an oak surround and brass fireplace doors. Oh, the power of paint!
Making the decision to paint our entertainment center was another scary project!
Immediately to the right of the entertainment center is the hallway and door back into our foyer. The doors at the end of the hallway lead to a bathroom, bedroom and the master bedroom.
The door to the right (at the very end) leads into an extra bedroom, which could really serve as a second master.
And finally, our master bedroom is currently undergoing a makeover of it’s own! I’d love for you to tune in and watch the progress!
Next up on the agenda, after we finish working in the master bedroom, is the master bathroom!
If you’ve managed to stick with me to the end – bless you! You don’t want to miss the other two homes on the agenda today. And be sure to check back the rest of the week for more!
