Location: Fort Worth, Texas
Shauna's Texas home immediately caught our eye due to its bold colors, fun textures and that jealousy-inducing bathroom wallpaper.
From Shauna: We used to live in a 1920s Spanish Tudor in the middle of the arts district. While we loved our home, we quickly outgrew the 2,700 square feet. You see, we are a blended family. My husband has two kids and I have four. A couple of them are married and have kids...so the family is big and keeps growing!
We love family get-togethers but needed more room to actually get together! We found a large two acre lot and built our forever home. My style is more modern eclectic while my husband's style is...well...rustic. It was quite a task to marry our styles together, but I think we did (okay, I did) a bang up job.
We're outside of downtown Fort Worth and we're still close to everything, but also in the country. We have deer and turkey that visit our yard every day. We have the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Our house is two stories with the master bedroom downstairs (for when my husband gets old and can no longer climb stairs :) ) and three other bedrooms upstairs, plus a game room. At the top of the stairs is this really cool lounge area with a funky settee and some comfy club chairs and a large bookcase with actual books. We even have an English phone booth. It's a great conversation piece.
This house is a little over 4,000 square feet and we are getting ready to build a thousand square feet pool house. We only have two kids who live at home full-time now—the others are grown or in college. But every Sunday we have family dinner. It is the best house for entertaining. We love it here.
Thanks so much, Shauna!
