Lacy's Beautiful Family Home in Earthy Tones

Men hejsan! They say a picture can speak louder than words and today is one of those days. 

Photographer Lacy Hoysradt's childhood home was a fixer upper which she witnessed her parents renovating by hand. And now she and her husband Reed have also caught the bug - and have been very busy doing up their 70s house in Austin, Texas despite their three young children. How have they coped? Lacy explains: "There is a beauty in the process... it's okay if your life and your home are currently under construction." Words to live by as we take a tour of their beautiful home today - and as we start a brand new week! 

Keep an eye out for earthy, warm notes of brown and green, a smart breakfast nook, lovely ways to display family photos and vintage finds. 

Welcome to Lacy's world! 

So many beautiful corners!

You can see so many more snapshots and find out about where she sourced items over on Lacy's instagram. Lacy has also shared some some of her and Reed's amazing DIY projects on the blog at Bespoke by Lacy

I hope Lacy's lovely home has filled you with inspiration! 

I have shared many homes located outside of Scandinavia on the blog before - see the entire international homes archive for more tours. 

Stor kram!


PS Thank you for your request to see a picture of my gold boots in the comments on Fridays Norwegian home tour featuring a fabulous walk-in closet - I'll see if I can take one for you soon! Everyone needs a pair, I tell you!

    I love the pile of candles in the fireplace, haphazard, some falling over. A very homey touch without adding any heat in a hot Texas location!

  2. I love this home! It looks like it could be in Scandinavia, but it looks right for Texas, too.

  3. I love her clean, yet warm, aesthetic!

  4. That's a beautiful home. I considered the same rug they have in the living room for my own. I can't remember why I eventually decided against it - I think because it did not come in the size I was looking for, but it one of the "finalists".

  5. Quite a masculine vibe. I like the candles in the fireplace too. Is that a basic cuckoo clock in the breakfast nook?

  6. I love the natural muted palette and mix of materials; the candles in the expansive brick fireplace - perhaps they are battery operated having many children and pets (I scooted over to her Instagram) - along with the scrolled iron screen for added interest. The harlequin and herringbone clay tile flooring fits right in with the wood planking. I'm always a softy for neutral kitchen colors. She's created such a warm and cozy place, even though it appears to have a lot of square footage, which is difficult to achieve, sometimes.
