Reasons We Love Shiplap

Shiplap walls took on a new trend when we seen them appearing on Fixer Upper. Everyone fell in love with the rustic farmhouse look, and we started seeing them in homes everywhere.

What I love most about using Shiplap in designs now, is that it’s so versatile. It’s not just a farmhouse look. Coastal designs have been using Shiplap for years. You can use Shiplap in modern designs as well as farmhouse, cottage, coastal and traditional! It can be used in all rooms of your house from the dining room to the bathroom.

Shiplap adds texture to a space bringing depth and textures. It can be applied vertically or horizontally. We’ve also seen where it’s applied in a herringbone pattern. Not only is it versatile in designs it’s versatile in how you apply it.

Since the Shiplap trend is so versatile, I don’t see this going out of style. It’s a classic yet modern look and adds just the right amount of texture to a space! This is why Shiplap is one of our favorite design tools to use in our spaces!

River + Ranch

If you live in western North Dakota you have probably heard of River + Ranch magazine. They inspire readers and showcase the talent and beauty of homes across the mid west.

We first met the team of River + Ranch a year ago at a home show. I have been a fan of their magazine since the first issue! So I was excited to meet them. Since then it’s been on my wish list to be part of their magazine . Well a year later it happened!!

I love how they showcase the talents of each builder. We are so grateful for the opportunity to be featured, and so excited about the photos of our home and the article. Check out the article below!

Rolling Hills House Tour

Here’s a peak inside our Rolling Hills spec home! I am so pleased how it turned out. When you are in the final phase of a house build it can feel like a giant dust bowl. Once all the dust is lifted it’s like a breath of fresh air! I remember walking into it after it got cleaned and I couldn’t stop smiling.

To get the house on the market we staged the main living areas. I basically shopped my house for the Staging pieces. I do have a room in my house for staging, but if I need more I just shop the rooms of my house! I want to make our spec houses feel like Home.
