This home was stunning! I was in love from the moment I walked though the door. The inside was tastefully adorned with adorable Fixer-Upper inspired touches. Of all the homes, this one most reflects my personal style and felt the least pretentious…for a 8,263 sq ft home anyway! The following is a summary of some of my favorite areas at Mon Coeur and doesn’t begin to cover the entirety of the home!
Formal Living Room
The highlight of this living room is the fireplace which features a white marble tiled fireplace surround just like what we have picked out for our fireplace. It looks gorgeous!! I also love the curved woodwork above the mantle. The verdict is still out on the bovine portraiture.
I’ve never been fond of formal dining rooms that back right up to the living room, where you are eating just inches from the sofa. It just feels weird to me. I’m sure I could get over it though if my dining room also had a view of the vineyard and Mt Hood in the distance! I love the oversized door that just opens up and brings the outdoors in, however in this case you would have to walk through the dining room to the patio. I prefer these openings off the living room or family room areas, so for me, this space felt a little awkward.
This walk-in pantry features a sliding barn door which suits this space perfectly, but my favorite detail in this pantry is the white Moroccan tile backsplash. I love this look!
It’s just like walking into the reveal of a Fixer Upper home after JoJo has worked her magic. Shiplap. Subway tile. Farmhouse chic. Pure heaven! (Bonus points awarded to this builder who had Billy Joel’s recent concert playing on the television all day long. I know, because we visited Mon Coeur twice and it was still playing five hours later! It’s like this place was created just for me!!)
This Bedroom was so light and airy. I fell in love with the desk…specifically the chair, well the pillow on the chair…all of it actually!
Let’s be honest. This is practically the perfect bed…am I right? Tufted headboard. Yes please! Oh and the diamond quilted coverlet, it’s made of the softest velvet I’ve ever felt.
I was so distracted by the gorgeous tub that I didn’t take a photo of the sink! By the way, how cute are those tin risers under the plant? Oh yeah, I snooped. There is a coffee machine in the bathroom. Perfection!
This area was complete with all kinds of fun activities…there was even a snack bar
