Feature Friday: August Fields

Today I am featuring the amazing home of Sara from the blog August Fields. Here is what she said when I asked her to describe her style:
I find it hard to pinpoint my style into certain decorating terms such as ‘farmhouse’, ‘shabby chic’, ‘vintage’ etc.  I love them all!

I will say though, that I tend to start with a traditional base.  Our home in and of itself is a traditional style, two story home.  very symmetrical and classic.  This goes for interior base as well.  traditional mouldings, grated windows, wood floors and light painted walls.  For large pieces of upholstered furniture I typically have a timeless, traditional piece in a solid color.  From that point on though I love to layer with what I love.  mason jars, thrifted lamps, family photos, books, unique pillows, painted end tables, fancy chandeliers, mirrored end tables…..layers and layers.  I have always loved pairing old with new, fancy with plain.  

Please enjoy her beautiful home! 
The Kitchen and Dining 
The Living Room 
Read about her Slipcover sofas here
Sara home schools all her kids so of course they needed a room to do it in and what better place than their very own schoolroom! 
The floor is too perfect. 
The room has a little window to the kitchen so Sara always knows what’s going on in the schoolroom. 
There is  a place for everything! This is where she hangs her tablecloths. 
Oh My Gosh. Love the marble! 
Pretty, pretty, pretty. 
The knobs are from Restoration Hardware. 
Have you ever seen such amazing custom bunk beds! 

Each boy has is own little cubby in his bunk. 
I hope you enjoyed the tour. To get more great inspiration make sure you check out her blog

    This house is unbelievable. Seriously. First of all, it's HUGE. Second of all, how is it so clean with so many kids??

    I love the kitchen – I remember seeing it awhile back and loving the Sally Wheat inspiration.

    Fabulous home. Like the beamed ceiling in the kitchen and colorful rug and little chandelier in the laundry room. All so fresh and pretty.

    Lovely! I think the master bedroom's my favourite – the button-tufted upholstered headboard and the gorgeous mirror!

    But please – the bird-shaped salt and pepper shakers? I. MUST. HAVE. THEM.!

    This house is seriously amazing! So jealous!

  46. ellie Thursday, April 14, 2011 at 3:36 pm #

    what a beautiful home…love it all, esp. the kitchen and school room. The knobs that they used in the bathroom you can find at Lowe's for about 6 bucks a piece as opposed to the 9 at RH…just a heads up. I put some them on my hutch..and they look amazing…very good quality

  47. Sally Lee by the Sea Thursday, April 14, 2011 at 4:28 pm #

    What a gorgeous home – I think I love everything about it. The school room is just adorable and it's obvious that a great amount of thought went into each room. I'm your newest follower ~ so glad I found your blog today.

  48. Jess @ Reclaimed Marketplace Friday, April 15, 2011 at 2:30 pm #

    YOur home is the most beautiful home I have ever seen! I wanted to ask someone who actually has carrera marble countertops in their kitchen if they are hard to keep from staining. I have heard they were but want to put them in so bad!! Would love to know your honest thoughts if you would do it again?
