Fall Home Tour of Fieldstone Hill – #BloggerStylinHomeTours
Thursday, September 24, 2015 by {darlene}

I am excited to, once again, be a part of the Blogger Stylin Home Tour series, hosted by the very lovely Lindsay of The White Buffalo Styling Company (hi girl!).

Thank you to those of you who have hopped over from Restless Arrow. I loved her fresh and breezy home tour, and her sweet spirit! So nice to meet you, Amber. For a list of all of the Blogger Stylin Home Tour participants, head to the bottom of this post. Also, be sure to follow along with us via the hashtags: #BloggerStylinHomeTours and #BSHT .

If you are new to Fieldstone Hill Design {FHD}, I am pretty excited that you are here. I am an interior designer who is designing my own house the “slowly-but-surely way.” Please comment to introduce yourself! I would love to connect! Also, join me on Instagram {which gets more sneak peeks of my home than ever}, and Pinterest too {I can be accused of being an addict. It’s kinda my scene.}

The Fall Home Tour of Fieldstone Hill

As of yesterday, it is officially Fall.

I am a Fall girl. So much so, that I actually had to move back Yankee-bound to PA from South Carolina so that I could have “a real fall” again. So what if it is followed by a bitter winter? I’ll hear no talk of that!

I am a Fall girl. I specifically designed my entire wedding day around the peak season of Fall, and my favorite tree is the Sugar Maple because of the oranges and yellows it bestows in October. I am convinced there is no bluer blue than the sky on a crisp day in Autumn. And the blue is made bluer when drying corn covers a field in the foreground.

An October Ninth kinda day….

Because I am a Fall girl, my home always has a touch of Fall in the air. Our floors are pumpkin pine. Our walls are hay, and dirt, and drying-cornstalk colors. My bed – and my boys’ beds – are draped in Pumpkin tones, and natural rattan fibers can be found in every single room. And then there is blue. Because the colors of Autumn are nothing if not draped against the most beautiful, crisp blue sky you have ever seen.

Fall is in the very walls of Fieldstone Hill. Welcome in. I am so glad you are here!

Window boxes and a full set of shutters are in her future. Can’t you see them now?

Fieldstone Hill was built in approximately the 1820s. She (she’s a girl, right? too high-maintenance to be a boy..) has lived through the Civil War. She has 3 outbuildings: a springhouse, an original log cabin 1796 homestead (pictured above), and a barn on its last legs. Poor girl, she needs lots of work and hand-holding. But with each year, bit by bit, we lovingly bring her back to her new glory.

Here is a pic of our front porch, after the Fall rain. Mums, you say? Fieldstone Hill was born for this…


Oh, man. I was really tempted to Photoshop this next picture to add some fall mums to the lonely pot, but something about this picture says home to me. This is the original (THICK!) side door on Fieldstone Hill, decorated with nothing but muddy boys’ boots.

And, no matter what you see in all of these glorious home tours combined, I can guarantee you will find nothing more beautiful than muddy-boy-boots.

Won’t you come inside?

The Front Hall

When you walk through either the front door or the side door at Fieldstone Hill, you enter our “Front Hall.” It is one of those rooms that has so many passageways that it is tough to decorate. It functions as our music room, and it gets daily ivory-tickling use.

See that spot over there by the green vase and the window? That is where my someday-baby-grand-piano is going to go. The only tough choice? Classic black, or walnut? Black, I think.

The Living Room

The boys dubbed this “The Big Room,” and the name stuck. This is where we spend our relaxing hours: In a new-old room, filled with new construction and old beams and an old mantle. For more on this space, and for additional pics, head to this post.

Angela, if you are reading this… when are you going to paint me some glorious art for that back wall? I’m thinking a lot of white, some chartreuse, yellow and fuchsia… no body parts…. #Iharrasspeopleforart

If you are wondering about the amazing sofa, and she is amazing,  I wrote about her here.

The Library

It is about time I shared some finished pictures of this space! I was so good at updating all of you as our library project was underway, but, ahem, never shared final photos. Better late than never.

From the stairwell in our Living Room, the carpeted staircase brings you down to our mudroom (see the muddy-boy-boots?) and the doorway to the left is our new library. We are a homeschooling family, and we may just be drowning in children’s books. Thank goodness, this custom library has helped us bear our burden. I designed it to be a flex room over the years, and someday it will come into its own as a swanky bar hangout. I’m sure of it.

The Dining Room

I hardly ever share pics of this room, because it does not match my vision for my home. But, good news. It is about to get crazy in here.  A BIG FAT wall is about to come down. Floors are about to change. The kitchen and the dining room are about to become one room. I have always dreamed of one big farmhouse table, in a big farmhouse kitchen, where our family hangs out all the day long and the boys pick up the fiddle and play like Pa…

Demo of the 3 foot thick stone wall, the one that is in our way of this vision, begins in March 2016.

Want to see my room inspiration and a taste of what is to come? Check out my project kitchen posts, and my FHD kitchen reno Pinboard. It is just one dash farmhouse, and the rest is graphic gutsy decor. I’m going high on contrast, folks.

The Master Bedroom and Bath

I love this room.

When we were house-hunting, Fieldstone Hill was in sorry shape. A lot of ‘maldirected’ decor was being used to cover the fact that no one was taking care of the bones of this house.

The MINUTE I saw the floors on the 2nd and 3rd floors, my heart skipped a beat. Could it be pumpkin pine? But the floors were jet black from age. Still, I am a potential-hound, if not anything. I scratched away at a corner and was convinced I could bring the beauty out of the beast.

So, yes. The floors steal the show in here. And the 2 foot window wells are not too shabby either. Everything else is just icing on the cake.

The Boys’ Room

This is a very special room. Interestingly enough, it was created from my very first design board, EVAHHH! Check out the vintage link to the board… that is SO “2010.”

As my vision evolved, the room  – and the kids – only got cuter. Love those boys. They are the cutest ever-lovin’ rascals, and they LOVE sharing a room.

Enjoy the full reveal and room tour over here at this post. Sources too. And don’t miss the dutch door. It is my absolute favorite feature and for some reason, it never gets fussed over. Fuss over it a little, okay??

One last note: The custom verse art between the beds are made by my friend Jennifer, and they reflect the 3 songs that I sing to each one of our children every night. They are dear to me.

The Nursery

And baby girl makes three. Three kids, that is.

This is my favorite room in the house.

It is the first room that I designed, from design board to finish, where I did not have to compromise my choices. I put exactly what my designing-heart desired into this room (for me, that never equates high-end, but rather, a high low mix. I got spend-y where I wanted to get spend-y, and where it did not matter, I saved.).

I shared this room in last year’s Blogger Stylin Home Tour, and I also did a big reveal post with sources as well. Both posts have additional pictures and info.

The Guest Room, Bath, and Laundry

You know how it is with guest rooms. They are like the red-headed step children of the family. Our poor red-headed step-child is waiting for curtains, art, sconces, and a bedding update, but this room is the cutest little room in the house. Complete with a trap door that leads to our boys’ room. It joins with the downstairs bath and closes off to create a complete guest suite.

Thank you SO much for joining me on my house tour! I hope you enjoyed it and got some inspiration along the way, just in case you happen to be a fellow “Farmhouse Simplicity and High-Gloss Glamour” kinda gal.

Here is one final pic from the Attic level of our home.  Fieldstone Hill is pretty happy that an interior designer moved in, because imagine if no one loved on these floors…. Now, that would be sad.
