An airy & Contemporary Home

This home has been a long time coming to our blog! It belongs to Jennifer Little, photographer extraordinaire and proprietress of HEYDAY, a new store coming to Fort Collins that features fresh, playful, curated, simple-living furnishings + apparel! I can not wait to shop! Follow her Instagram for updates on the shop opening! She posts sneak peeks of the brands they plan to carry -- it's going to be AMAZING!

A few months ago, I teamed up with Jen to create a video and blog post about biscuits and almond milk. We filmed it at her house and I just fell in love! Her home has such an ease to it. It's comfortable, beautifully-styled, and extremely welcoming....just like Jen. 

NOTE: Paint sources are documented at the end of this post.

Jen said that the floor plan was not large, so they redesigned a lot of the spaces to maximize space and storage. The kitchen cabinets went to the ceiling for more storage, and they expanded the opening between the kitchen and living room. Hardwood floors are used throughout the house to keep a good flow, and they used a lot of white to keep the home open and fresh.

Jen is from Georgia and she has always loved hardwood floors. She wanted to mimic the look of southern homes while keeping a touch of Colorado. The bathroom floors were inspired by Jen's great aunt Willa who had a gorgeous home in the Virginia Highlands of Atlanta. They wanted a look that was timeless and classic, hence the hardwood, hexagon tile, subway tile, white walls, and plantation shutters. To update the look a bit, they added gray interior doors. LOVE the pop of color they provide!

Ohhh...all that MARBLE!! So gorgeous and boy is it easy to prep cook on!

Jen inherited a lot of these pieces from her great aunt Willa. Willa had amazing taste!

Can you believe that Jen HAND PAINTED all the polka dots on her walls?!

  1. Beautiful, neat, organized, clean, elegant, cozy and heartwarming!

  2. While the kitchen is perfection and the bedrooms are nicely decorated, the living room could use some gentle nudging of furniture pieces for a more visually pleasing arrangement.
