Spring Home Tour | Inspired by Charm

Welcome to my Spring Home Tour! I’m so excited to be joining a crew of fabulous bloggers for the Spring Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours hosted by the always lovely Lindsey of The White Buffalo Styling Co. I will link up all of the participating bloggers are at the bottom of this post. I highly recommend that you check out everyone’s space. To anyone who’s visiting IBC for the first time, welcome to my blog and my home!

It feels as if not much has changed since our last little tour, but I figured I’d show you around anyway. As you might have guessed from the many food posts on IBC in recent weeks, I’ve been struggling a bit with my design and creativity muscle lately. Much like my physical muscles, I need to get my butt in gear and start working out.

As in past tours, I will mostly let the pictures do the talking and throw in a few links here and there. If you have any questions, just note them in the comment section below. If you’re looking for paint color sources, everything is listed here. I’m currently working with my graphic designer to improve this list and its functionality, so please stay tuned for that.

Ready? Let’s do this!

Our first stop is the dining room. It looks pretty much the same. I’m still very much in love with the gray and immensely grateful that Nate pushed me to make the change. Last week I shared a few ideas for styling centerpieces for your dining room table if that’s ever a struggle for you.

In the entryway, I installed this DIY coat hook. It came in handy for my mom’s 60th birthday party. I also found that orchids do exceptionally well (when watered) in this space, so I’m totally loving that.

Over in the office, things are looking familiar as well. I’m trying hard to limit the amount of “stuff” I have around. I’m not quite where I want to be, but I’m making progress.

In the living room, I decided to do something new for spring. In the past, there was a lot of color happening in this space. Although I loved that, I’ve pared things down to mostly blue, green, and yellow. Naturally, a few other colors can be seen in the rug and some of the accessories, but for the most part, the color scheme has been refined. I think it’s more cohesive and relaxed.

The kitchen really hasn’t changed at all. I’m itching to replace the countertops and backsplash. I know it’s going to be a job and half so I’ve been procrastinating. However, I think it needs to happen sooner than later.

Heading upstairs, I’ve moved around a few things in my bedroom and added accessories. I’m hoping to make some progress with wall art / decor in the near future.

This winter, my guest bedroom received an updated paint treatment above the fireplace. I also wanted to point out how well this little cactus garden is doing. It’s grown so tall.

As always, thanks for stopping by! I already have a Summer Home Tour scheduled, so expect that in a couple months. Hopefully, we can get outside then when things are a little greener.

Have a wonderful weekend. I’ll meet you back here next week.

    Every time I think your home can’t get any prettier, it gets prettier. Such attention to detail and perfect styling right down to the cute cats. Love everything!

      Awe! Thank you so much Julia. ๐Ÿ™‚ Home Tours stress me out and I never feel things look quite right. I’m glad to hear things are still getting prettier.

    Where did you get the brass/gold cat in the living room? I’m guessing it’s vintage and one-of-a-kind. I love it!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      You are correct. I found it at an antique shop in Portland, OR. Try eBay though. I feel like I’ve seen one similar there before.

      xo Michael

    beautiful home! I just bought my first home and you’re definitely a source of inspiration for decorating! Where is the circle rug from in the second photo?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      The rug is from West Elm.

  • Summer at

    I know I sound like a crazy person but I am just totally in love with your home, Michael! Every time I see it my love grows, lol! No seriously, though it’s obvious you thought out every single detail and it all works perfectly together. I love the hooks behind your door and the greenery, fruit, flowers, light fixtures, etc. Great tour!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Thank you SO much Summer! That’s quite the compliment. It means so much to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Michael, I LOVE everything!!!
    Awesome job, as always!

    Enjoy the beautiful home you have created.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Thank you SO much! ๐Ÿ™‚ And the counter from the shop worked out wonderfully for my space. Who knew!?

      xo Michael

  • Elle at

    The “simplified” look of your space is so peaceful and pretty. I can tell that the kitties are also lovin’ it.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Thanks! I do it! I’m not quite THERE, but making progress. ๐Ÿ™‚

      xo Michael

  • Vanessa at

    Gosh Michael this tour is beautiful and your photos are amazing! I love it all, I especially like how your house is quirky, colorful and organic…if that makes sense. You just know how to put it all together in a cool, designer package! Happy Spring!

  • Cynthia at

    Can you even believe it? Your home is BEAUTY~FULL. I hope you plop down and enjoy the fruits of your labor and creativity Michael! The beauty is the feeling your home exudes and the fullness is you and your spirit. Thanks for making me tingle! Cynthia

  • Dyan at

    I love your house, I could move in and live there immediately, it is fresh , inspired, quirky, with well balanced estetics , inspiring etc,,, etc… You are definitely in the right field. I am very glad to have found you , as it pushes me to keep going in my own home. You renewed my energy and I am now exited to do more changes . Thank you

  • Mary Ann @the beach house kitchen at

    Michael your home is absolutely fabulous!! You are extremely talented! i love your decorating style and all your photos!! Awesome job!

  • Alana in Canada at

    Beautiful as always. I’m curious about the wall hanging over the TV. Do you have a better shot of it? Did you DIY that? Thanks.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Alana – It’s actually from CB2. I’m not sure if they still sell it. I did switch up the pole to a natural wood.

      Hope that helps!

      xo Michael

  • Claire Brody at

    Well I’ve been scrolling through for about 10 minutes now trying to find my “favorite part” of your home tour to leave in a comment but it’s all so PERFECT I can’t pick one favorite shot! I mean your closet is insane, and I looove your dining room. Your style is flawless!!!! Love every single detail Invite me over!!

  • Peggy at

    I just realized I don’t think I have ever paid attention to the light fixture over the entry table. I know you did a post on the entry, did I miss the fixture? All of your lighting fixtures are awesome. Your home is beautiful and you really should be doing photos for a magazine. Perfection.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Peggy – thank you so much! What a compliment!! I’m not sure I ever really talked much about that fixture. It was from Pottery Barn about 5 – 6 years ago. They no longer carry it. However, it’s called the Edison Chandelier. You might have luck finding it on eBay.

      Hope that helps. Thanks again!
      xo Michael

      • Peggy at

        Thank you!

  • Liz at

    Oh wow – this is absolutely stunning!!! I am so in love with your style and your design choices. The unexpected little touches like the pink chest of drawers and the fantastic mix of pillows on the sofa just make your spaces amazing!!! I love that your decorating is not cookie cutter, like so much of what is out there. Very refreshing to see someone follow their heart when it comes to decorating their home.

  • Amy W at

    I really can’t even handle your home (in the best of ways!!). Every time I pop over here, I am so inspired. So much creativity in every single space.

  • Skylar at

    Beautiful tour! I always love your pillow combos/arrangements! And your light fixture choices truly make the room(s). I actually had a home appraiser come through the house (for mortgage stuff) and he said that my lighting choices absolutely improved the value of the WHOLE HOUSE! So I am sure that you are doing the same. Keep up the great blog work — I just love your home/design posts. You’re inspiring me to try a plant or two in the house — I’ve avoided it forever!

  • LUCY at

    How is it possible for you to make everything look perfect? from cookies to pillows to tables to lamps to etc, etc. I love visiting your home Michael, I can stay here forever..xo

  • Kristin Clarke at

    I LOVE EVERYTHING! Buying a house right now and looking for inspiration. Stunning!

  • Lindsay at

    Michael, I LOVE your home, as always. That closet is unbelievable! I’m so grateful you joined in!

  • Carol Griffin at

    Absolutely love your home! And, from that little peek into the kitchen, it looks so vintage with a modern twist of the pegboard, I would not change it at all! Would love to see more of your kitchen! Also, where did you find those fabulous file cabinets in your office area? I love them!

  • Stunned at

    I’m inlive with all of your wall color choices. Do you list them on your site? Not sure if my tablet is showing gull site format. Beautiful an I am envious of your relaxing livable home.

  • Jenn at

    Of course I love it all!! You are so amazing at mixing color and pattern!! Light, bright and SO beautiful!!

  • Michelle at

  • Gwen at

    Everything looks so bright and cheery and sophisticated! I’m in the mood to purge, too and it’s making my home feel so much more light and open. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Shavonda@SGStyle at

    Seriously Michael!! I just cant even freakin stand it!! Im with Julia…just when I think it cant possibly get any prettier…IT DOES! Love every single detail. The glass doorknobs are a definite fav…as is the chandy in your bedroom….oh and the lavender walls…aaaaand the birch wall hook. Ok lets just say its safe to say pretty much everything is my fav. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us.

  • Amber at

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Which white shelves are you referring to? In the living room / office or the dining room?

      xo Michael

  • Bettsi at

    Wow, your home is really pretty.

  • Adriana Maes at

    Wow! Every room makes me feel so excited! I love all the attention to the smallest details. Very Well done and original!!

  • Alison at

    Michael, your home is gorgeous! I love the eclectic mix of color and texture! I’ve been trying to track down the CB2 rug in your living room since the moment I saw your pictures (and saw your comment that its CB2). I believe its discontinued. ๐Ÿ™

  • Veronica at

    Gorgeous! Your home looks so happy and I love all the colors!

  • Gloria at

    Michael –

    First-time homeowner here, stopping by to say that in one single post, you’ve become my BIGGEST home/design inspiration! I am so in love with your living room that I’m trying to recreate it in my long/narrow Chicago condo. The colors, the geometric prints are so bright and inviting without being too “girly” as my bf would put it. I’ve been searching for HOURS to find a similar rug (CB2 no longer sells it) with no luck. Have you seen anything else that incorporates gray, blue teal and yellow/gold? If you ever get tired of it and want to sell, I’m your girl!!!!
