Hello, hello to friends old and new at Worthing Court! I want to say a big THANK YOU to Suzy for inviting me over to share my home with you today! My name is Jennifer Carroll and I blog over at Celebrating Everyday Life. In addition to the blog, I am also the publisher of a new magazine also titled Celebrating Everyday Life with Jennifer Carroll, which is launching late next month. But today I’m here to give you a tour of my home. This is my first home tour – I’m inspired after this to add it to my own blog! – I hope you enjoy it!!

  Hutch painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Provence, Celebrating Everyday Life blogPin

 Let’s begin in the heart of my home, the kitchen! I moved into my home almost a year ago and this hutch project was the first furniture DIY project that I attempted. It was also my first foray into painting with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and may I say I have never looked back! This paint has been DIY-life changing!


 My home has a very open floor plan and my kitchen is divided from my dining room by this island. These bar stools, from the Martha Stewart line at Home Decorators Collection, were a house warming gift to myself. They are perfect in this room! I’ve got some ideas for a few projects I’d like to do in here including installing a new back splash. Right now I’m swamped with launching the magazine so big projects like that are on the back-burner but they’re still there simmering away…

  Botanical Mantel, Celebrating Everyday LifePin

My dining room has a fireplace in it which reminds me of a keeping room – I love the idea of that. I have fun decorating my mantel for the different seasons. This was my mantel for Spring before I moved these prints into my living room. I like to move things around a lot so things are always changing around here!

  Wings behind Christmas TreePin

This is a snapshot of my mantel area at Christmas! I love my angel wings hanging on the stairwell wall.

  Aqua and Orange table setting, Celebrating Everyday Life blogPin

 I love creating pretty tablescapes on the blog and surprisingly I haven’t photographed my entire dining room so at least here you get a peek at what I get up to in here!

  Living Room at Celebrating Everyday LifePin

My living room is the room that’s hopefully about to undergo the most change… I’ve got plans to paint a lot of the furniture in here which I’m hoping will really lighten the feeling in this room. It doesn’t get as much daylight as I’d like and these wood tones just make it feel darker. As the weather continues to warm, my fingers are itching to grab a paint brush and get started!!

  Horse Pillow, Celebrating Everyday Life blogPin

My favorite American designer is Ralph Lauren and I adore horses so I have lots of equestrian details in my home and always keep my eye out for great equestrian accessories like this horse pillow from Target.

  Daughter's Bedroom, Pink Girls room, Celebrating Everyday Life blogPin

This is my daughter’s bedroom. I’ve blogged about the curtains I made in here (fun note: I used shower curtain rings to hang them!!) but have yet to share the whole room so you’re getting a first look at it!

  Angel Wings, Little girl's roomPin

Since she’s my “little angel” I couldn’t resist adding this sweet baby angel wings to her decor. A fun touch of whimsy! Stay tuned on my blog for a few more photos of this room.

  My Aqua Bedroom, Celebrating Everyday Life blogPin

Finally, here is my bedroom. In case you haven’t noticed… I love turquoise (or aqua, or whatever you want to call it!) and had a lot of fun with it in my bedroom. My mom helped me sew the wall canopy (not sure what else to call it!) and my dad helped me hang it. I adore this canopy – it makes me feel like a princess! I have plans to make a padded headboard for my bed – I hope to get it done this summer… we’ll see how that goes…

  BedsideTable, Celebrating Everyday LifePin

I know the rug doesn’t match the canopy but for me, it’s still a lovely compliment and I adore the pattern so much that for me it works and at the end of the day, that’s what matters most is that this room makes me feel happy!

  silver Leaf Dresser makeoverPin

This silver leaf dresser project was a big project I took on before I moved in and I still adore the dresser. It was my grandmother’s and I love having something of hers that now also adds a bit of glamour to my room with all its silver sparkle! I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into some of the rooms in my home. I feel like there is still so, so much to do here but as I stop and look at the photos, I’m also proud of what I’ve accomplished in the time I’ve been here and how it’s coming together. Creating a home is a journey – and a long one at that. I’m trying to enjoy mine and not get too caught up in what I don’t have or haven’t accomplished yet.

 Happy Celebrating!
