Stay at Home-ista House Tour Guest Post

I would like to introduce you to Jessica from Stay at Home-ista. I'm so excited that she will be our guest today. Please visit her blog for more details about the house that she designed herself. You will love the view from her home.

Hi, I'm Jessica from Stay at Home-ista. I blog about life as a stay at home mom, which can cover a lot of bases! Mostly I focus on home design (you'll get to see the house below), food, and parenting tips like how to survive long car rides:)

I was delighted when Darline asked me to do a guest post here on South Shore Mommy. My husband and I met in architecture school at Harvard, so when the opportunity presented itself to build a house of our own we jumped at the chance. Of course, that "jump" lasted 4 years from start to finish, but now that it is done, I know every detail of the house and love every bit of it. Come on in.

That's the view from our deck. The view was the main reason we bought this property, it's just stunning to wake up everyday to see the San Francisco Bay, and sunsets over the Golden Gate bridge are beyond words.


Looking down the gallery towards the kitchen.

The Living Room with my favorite fireplace and mantle. Plus the TV hangs off the wall without wires, so cool.

The library is right off of the kitchen and play area, very convenient for mediating any disputes that may occur. And when I need to change a diaper, I just head to the Powder Room.

Then upstairs...

The nursery which opens off of the upstairs loft sitting area:


I made the heart art with my daughter to brighten up the space. To the right of the awesome decal, is the master bedroom.

We finally brought a little color in with some art prints above the bed.

Oh, I could just live in the master bath. There is marble everywhere, which gives it great texture, and the three windows bring in a ton of light. Quite the way to wake up in the mornings!

Thanks for stopping by! Please come visit me at Stay at Home-ista for more!
