#LMBlovesHouses- Crystal Coast Homes

I haven’t done an #LMBlovesHouses [Liz Marie Blog loves houses] in so long! I miss it so much. It’s basically a place where I share my addiction to looking at homes. From me driving by homes and making Jose stop the car so I can take a photo to me actually touring homes, to you guys with amazing homes sending me photos of your amazing homes so I can share them here. Anyways, this past weekend I went to the Crystal Coast of North Carolina with Hunter Fan Co., which I will be blogging more about later, but while we were there we took a trolly tour through downtown Beaufort [we were supposed to be on on bikes, but it was pouring rain the day we went] & on this tour I saw some amazing homes when I was there & I wanted to share a few snapshots that inspired me during my visit. In no particular order…


Seriously from the architecture, to the floors, to the fabrics, to the landscape.. it was all so inspiring and the trip made me fall in love with the small details in spaces. I immediately wanted to come home and add more cozy elements to your farmhouse like tile & pattern detail. I was hoping that the quick snapshots I grabbed on my phone would also inspire you in some small way. You all know I love Eastern North Carolina after living there for 10 years, but this trip made me fall even more in love with the area & all the beauty it had to offer. If you ever get the change to go to Easter North Carolina be sure to take the Hungry Town Tour in Beaufort so you can see all these homes & eat your way through Beaufort while you take the tour. You won’t regret it if you are a creep like me & seeing other peoples homes! Anyways, thank you guys so so so much for stopping by the blog today & for getting a glimpse into my trip to North Carolina. Let me know what your favorite inspiration picture is… I think mine is, well all of them. I want them all. haha Thank you for stopping by! xx

Sunny Cottage Tour- #LMBLovesHouses

I was feeling like we all needed a little dose of sunshine on this Friday so as I thought of a home to feature from #LMBLovesHouses, I knew I had to feature Sarah from Little Vintage Nest. Her home is a ray of sunshine & every little corner is just happy. I love how she mixes vintage & her love for DIY & makes her house a cozy sunshine cottage. Here is a little tour of her home, but be sure to check out her blog when you are done here & tell her hi for me! Enjoy this tiny glimpse into her home…

I am so excited to be back this week with the second edition of #LMBLovesHouses here on the blog. A look into houses that I love. You can go [here] for more info & to see how you can submit your home to be featured here on the blog.

Today I chose a colorful little cottage to share with you. I was inspired by the pops of color & the coziness of House By Hoff’s lovely abode & I knew you guys would be as well. I am so inpspired by the way April uses pops of color in each of her spaces to make them cheerful & inviting. Her home is so unique & unlike any I have seen with the combinations she has chosen. You know when you see someone doing their own thing & using their own style? It’s so refreshing & inspiring. So without any more chatting here is a tiny glimpse into her home…

#LMBLovesHouses – Featuring Your Homes!

10311109_208390169521189_1336646198_n

Today I wanted to chat with you about something that I have been thinking about for a while now. I am Liz Marie as many of you know & this is my blog. I share our house & my passion for home decor & DIY here daily. With that, one of my HUGE passions is seeing what others do in their homes, how people decorate, how they fix up their houses, their DIY ideas, & my word I just LOVE houses of all shapes sizes & colors. So what does all of this mean? I want to start featuring YOUR houses on my little blog. I always do a little thing on Instagram called #LMBLovesHouses where I feature houses I love & I want to expand on that. I want to go show off the inside & outside of others homes because I love sharing others passions for home decor & DIY like mine. I know that we can all be inspired by others ideas & I want to support & cheer on other creatives who are making their house a home like I am.

There are a few ways to do this:

Locals: Are you local here in West Michigan or know a local with a really cool home & want to show off what you did in your home? Are you a builder or know a builder with really cool homes, an interior designer who wants to show off your work, or know of one? Or are you someone who loves your house & would love for me to see it as well? I would love to come and photograph inside your home or have you send me great quality photos if you are more comfortable with that. This can be one room or as many as you want to show off here on the blog. I would love to photograph a project you did in your home, before & afters, living rooms, bedrooms, nurseries, back patios, porches, seasonal decor, gallery walls, furniture makeovers, anything that you are proud of. I would love to see it & share it here on the blog with my readers. Email me at HelloLizMarieBlog@gmail.com with a few photos of your space so we can chat about featuring your home!

My far away peeps: At first I hesitated doing this, but seriously how could I leave any of my DIY & home decor loving friends out?! I would love to feature your homes, DIY projects, room reveals, the exterior of your home,a baby nursery, kids rooms, living rooms, kitchens, I want to see it all! If you want to be featured on LizMarieBlog.com email me some high res good quality photos to HelloLizMarieBlog@Gmail.com & I will select one a week to feature here on the blog. & no, you don’t have to be a blogger to show off your spaces here on the blog… if you are proud of your home, I want to see it! But of course if you have a blog that’s amazing too & I would love to feature you & support your blog too.

12783429_104241949969584_1293296494_n

I am going to try to feature one house weekly here on the blog that inspires me & that I know will inspire you guys as well. I can’t pick everyone, but I will try my hardest to do as many as possible. Also, I think this is a great way to meet you guys too! I have been meeting so many amazing people at our store lately who are doing some awesome projects in their homes & since opening the store & meeting more of you guys I realized that you guys deserve to be on here just as much as I do, because let’s face it, you are the reason I blog. I love that I get to come here and share with you guys & you all inspire me to keep sharing here. So, let’s do this! Let’s get this little thing started. I can’t wait to hear from you guys & start this little fun project here on the blog. Help me spread the word! Share this post with your family & friends, I can’t wait to see the submissions. I really hope to get the opportunity to come photograph some local homes along with featuring some long distance homes as well. Thank you guys as always for stopping by my blog & for checking me out on Facebook & Instagram as well. xx

#LMBLovesHouses

Something that sort of accidentally started happening was on my Sunday walks I started taking photos of houses for inspiration for our future home. I am obsessed with all different styles of home & I wanted to make a scrapbook of the houses to look back on later for inspiration. The windows, the color combinations, the architecture, it all just inspires me & makes me so happy. You can find inspiration everywhere & I like to find my inspiration in everything I see everyday. My Sunday walks have been so inspirational & I’ve had fun sharing some of the gems I have seen on my walks with you guys on Instagram, but I thought I would blog a few of my favorites on here today to leave you with some inspiration for the weekend. Happy Friday friends! Enjoy a few of my recent Instagram photos from my #LMBlovesHouses hashtag….
