In Monday’s post, we visited with Kelly in Rochester, Indiana, where she and her husband recently moved into their stunning new pole barn home crafted by AC Builders.

Kelly chose her half bath off the kitchen to bring the barn look indoors with some farm antiques and an Outback Gooseneck Light highlighting an apron front sink. Today we check out Kelly’s inviting master bath.Read More

Gina and her growing family have been living in their Fort Collins, Colorado, home for seven years. Built in 1907, the 1300-square-foot home was beginning to feel cramped so Gina decided to reinvent her historic home to give it a more modern feel while still retaining its vintage charm.

For the kids’ bath upstairs, Gina wanted something retro yet clean and modern looking.Read More
