Spring Home Tours Week Two: Bria Hammel Interiors

April 13, 2017 Interior Design 0 Comments

It’s week two of #SpringIntoHome and this week’s home tour is courtesy of Bria Hammel Interiors. Bria and I were first connected through a mutual Minnesota blogger friend (remember DIY maven Erin of Francois et Moi). Bria has the brightest and sweetest personality. The minute I met her and saw her big smile I thought, “she seems like a FUN and fabulous friend (and boss).” Bria had her crew from Bria Hammel Interiors with her at the Design Bloggers Conference and they were all so welcoming, and let me join their party for the weekend.

Bria’s home is reflection of her light, bright and FUN spirit! Lots of cheerful patterned wallpaper, classic white and bright walls, plus some soft colors round out the rooms.  Here’s her home tour in her own words. Hope you enjoy! Check back next week for another great tour!

BRIA HAMMEL HOME TOUR

“This is the first time I’ve done an actual home tour of my house {still a work in progress!}. We have been in our home now for 1.5 years, and are chipping away at all of the projects that come with a new construction home. {we still don’t have grass in our backyard, yikes!}

One of my favorite parts of our house is the front door. Clients always ask me if I worry about privacy, but we are up on top of a hill so you have to drive all the way up our driveway and walk down our sidewalk to see anything. The natural light that comes in through the door and windows is so beautiful during the day… totally worth any privacy I may be giving up!

Our great room is definitely still a work in progress. Since we moved in with a six week old baby, we have kept this room on the back burner. It hasn’t been a bad things to have floor space and no breakables to be thrown across the room 😉 I’m definitely getting the itch to get this space completed. We want to add another sofa, possibly remove the carpet and extend our wood floors (hubby is pushing hard for a new puppy!) Even if I can just get window treatments up this room would feel more complete… stay tuned!

One of the most used spaces {obviously} is our kitchen. The island is large enough to host a large gathering and offer plenty of places to sit/stand… which happens often in our space! We love hosting friends and family whether its for a holiday, football game, or Sunday dinner! Having a functional kitchen is key.

The backsplash in our kitchen is the #1 asked for source on our Instagram… so if you missed it and want the information too, its by Walker Zanger!

Speaking of Instagram, you may have seen that we were in Nashville last weekend. It was a trip we won’t forget! One of my favorite parts was touring the 12 South neighborhood, which of course included a visit to Draper James! If you have been there or have a girl crush like I do on Reese Witherspoon, you would recognize our wallpaper in our dining room. They have the Farrow and Ball paper in the fitting rooms of the store and I have been in love with it ever since the store opened!

It might be known by now that I have a small obsession with wallpaper. I can’t get enough of it; to me its what takes a design to the next level. In order to not become the crazy wallpaper lady I’ve had to be very selective about where I am installing it in my own home, and I’ve made sure to be absolutely in love before I commit to it. Well, our new mudroom wallpaper is just that. This Hygge and West wallpaper makes my heart flutter… every single time I walk into the room. My husband even melted when he saw it installed for the first time. Direct quote from the hubby: “It makes our house not feel so new, likes its been here for a 100 years.” That is EXACTLY what I was hoping for. {more pics to come when we do the full mudroom reveal later this month!}

 

Last, but not least, are the kids rooms. Yes thats right, we haven’t designed our master bedroom yet… but don’t worry, the kids rooms have been finished since the day we moved in. I guess it was a lot easier to design adorable kids spaces that I knew I would probably be changing in a few years then our own personal space.

Louie’s room is a cozy, adorable boy room. The elephant art was painted for him by an amazingly talented friend of mine, Rachel Brown of Rachel Brown Art. {You really should check out her work, we are obsessed!} His bed might be more comfortable than ours, with flannel sheets and a warm down duvet, making our favorite part of the day cozying up and reading books in bed together.

Brooklyn’s nursery still gets all of our guests excited when they visit {especially the ladies}. I’ll never get sick of the Anthropologie wallpaper we used in here. {Not saying that I’m committing to changing it out in a few years ;)} She definitely gets the most natural light in her room which gives the warmest vibes during the day. It really is just the sweetest little nursery.

So there you have it! I hope you enjoyed our home. We can’t wait to share more of it as our projects get checked off our list! Don’t forget to share your #springintohome spaces on Instagram using the hashtag for the chance to be featured amongst all of our Instagram feeds.”
