Summer Tour of Homes: Haneen’s Haven

It’s the last day of the Summer Tour of Homes. I hate that it has to come to an end – but it’s going out with a bang because I have a gorgeous home to share today. If you’re just now popping in from The Shabby Nest – WELCOME! Let’s see what today’s tour has in store…
Welcome to my home! So glad you’re here! I’m Haneen, and I’m honored to be a part of Gina’s Summer Home Tour. I hope you find something here that inspires you. I’m a stay at home mom of four with an art degree, and my home is currently where I pour my creative energy. I have a hard time finding the best words to describe my personal style. Some rooms in my house have an eclectic, casual, global-chic vibe, and others are more sophisticated with a touch of glam. All I know for sure is… I love color, I love pattern, and I love to mix! Grab a cup of Joe and take a look around…
FoyerWe’ll start at my foyer. I stenciled the entrance with a tone on tone look. The more you walk, the more color you see, so I thought I’d keep that wall neutral. With four kids, most nooks in my home have a level of practicality. The top drawer in that chest is stashed with headbands and hair accessories for my three daughters. The other two drawers are extra storage for holiday decor. I don’t like having to dig through the basement to find my favorite foyer decor come Halloween or Christmas!
Haneen's Haven Summer Home TourNext up is my living room. Boy, do I love this room. I stenciled the feature wall in here, but this time in a deep chocolate brown, and topped it with an airy gallery of mirrors and empty frames- some from chain stores, some from antique shops. I love to entertain, and often times you’ll find me and my girlfriends in here catching up and enjoying a beverage. That cabinet is filled with anything from my mom’s old coffee set, to clay art my kids have brought home from school.

Moving on is my newly designed office! If only you could see the before! It was essentially used as a toy room, and I just reached a point where I wanted to glam up the space and move the toys to our finished basement. I couldn’t be happier with the turn out. I get a kick out of forming a vision in my head and watching it unfold. I knew I wanted a deep navy on the walls (went with Ralph Lauren’s Club Navy) accented with gold finishes and tiny pops of hot pink. I think the Sputnik chandelier from Lucent Light Shop on Etsy really makes the whole space!

I’ve always wanted to try gold dipping, and I knew I wanted some storage to remain for my two year old’s “go to” toys, so I thought this cabinet from the new store, At Home, was the perfect opportunity to give it a go. The arrow hardware makes the piece, if you ask me. Love it! The chair next to it was actually left behind at the home my brother and his wife just bought. They were going to toss it and I’m so glad I showed up before they did! I think my husband thought I was crazy. I brought it home a year ago, left it in the garage, and kept saying, “I’ll find a spot for it, just wait.” I love things that can pass for ugly and beautiful simultaneously. This old thing just seems to fit right in here next to other brand new things that shine.

Moving on to the family room/kitchen area… the place we spend most of our time. Our kitchen is definitely a work in progress. I recently moved the rug that was under our table to the basement, and I’m currently on the hunt for a new one. It was orange and I was feeling a little “orange overload” in here. I tend to be drawn to fall colors, but I’m trying to find ways to keep my kitchen airy and light since we have dark cabinets and counters.

The dining room is probably the most traditional space in our home…

Moving on up! Let’s have a look at the bedrooms, shall we?

All four of my kids’ bedrooms have won Project of the Week on Project Nursery. First up is my son’s nursery. I wanted a blend of rustic and modern. I absolutely love old pallet walls, but wasn’t sure how to go about installing one, and I also wasn’t sure how practical it would be for a nursery. This wallpaper was the perfect compromise. The Z marquee sign was a DIY.

There are lots of personal touches on my son’s dresser. The art in the frame is a photograph of my dad’s old painter’s palette. I love the colors and the sentiment. I also framed my husband’s childhood Detroit Tiger’s tshirt, and the hanging onesie is a personalized gift from a friend with my husband’s high school basketball number. The sock monkey was a handmade gift to my husband when he was a baby. Lots of love went into this room!

Next, is my 9 and 5 year old’s shared space. The beds in here are me and my sister’s childhood beds. I painted and stenciled them (and the feature wall) with stencils from Royal Design Studio. They have a fabulous selection of stencils! Love the modern chevron juxtaposed with the tradtional look of lace on the walls.

Next is my (almost) 12 year old’s room. Ah, the joys of compromising with a tween! She wanted bold, and I gave it to her! I wasn’t so sure about this color on all four walls, but we broke it up with a polka dot stencil, fab bedding from Pottery Barn Teen, and solid white drapes. I don’t regret it. This room is FUN! The dresser was my husband’s as a child. I topped the drawers with Overlays painted to match the polka dots, and added fun hot pink pulls. Just another way to add color to the room and customize the space.

 And now, on to our master bedroom. Believe it or not, the first five years we lived in this home, our mattress was on the floor. This bedroom was just always last on “the list.” You know how that goes. No one comes in your bedroom but you, right? Well, let me tell you, if this is your mentality, bump your bedroom way up on the list. Once I finished it, I questioned why we didn’t do it sooner. It became such a gorgeous retreat. I love Oprah’s quote, “Your home should rise up to meet you.” That’s how I feel when I walk in my bedroom. After a day with the kids- filled with sticky messes, scattered toys, and a whole lot of whining, this bedroom says, “Hey! You’re an adult! Come, put your feet up!”

Let’s wrap up the tour heading out the back door. This pseudo mudroom is at the entrance from the garage. Eventually, I’d love to finish part of the garage into a mudroom. We could really use it as a family of six! But for now, we took the doors off of an existing closet, painted some horizontal stripes, and added hooks and a bench. It works for now!
