Tuesday Tours: Industrial Style!

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Happy Tuesday friends, and welcome to this weeks edition of Spindle & Rye "Tuesday Tours"!
This week it's all about industrial style, and I couldn't think of a better friend to feature than Allison from A House and a Dog. If you're looking for industrial decor inspiration, Allison is your "go to girl". Allison lives in California with her better half Joe, and their sweet little fur baby "Scooby".

She has a great sense of style, loves decorating, design, crafting and DIY projects.
Definitely my kinda girl!

I'm so happy that Allison has opened up her beautiful home for us to take a peek inside. If your'e not already following her on Instagram, trust me, you're missing out (and should fix that STAT)

Grab a cup of coffee, or drink of your choice and get prepared to see some amazing "eye candy".

We had our house built last year and it was the most exciting and stressful time of our lives. But of course, it was all worth it in the end! We live in a quiet little cul de sac, in a small town in California. Bright and sunshiny days are my favorite!
Ever since I was a little girl I wanted a house with a red door. So of course as soon as the builder showed us the exterior color options, I immediately chose it before even looking at the other choices! We love sitting out on the front patio with our dog, Scooby

Come on in! This sign is a DIY, made with a burlap canvas and a craft decal.

Our floor plan is very open, so our entry way is fairly large. This vintage inspired box is a great place to drop our keys & sunglasses. And I'm always reminded that it's a wonderful life!

Another great reminder before leaving the house! This is my favorite pillow from Loving Leigh Yours. I love supporting small business and Amanda is a doll.

Our great room - we do everything here! It's our media room, game room, living room, den, family room, dining room, breakfast nook, and kitchen all in one.
I wouldn't have it any other way!

I created this little reading nook in the corner and the pouf is the dogs favorite spot to lay and look out the patio window.

Behind our couch is one of my favorite DIY projects. This sofa table was inspired by a $600 piece, that we built for about $20. It's the perfect spot for our drinks and the remote!

The dining room is my favorite room of the house. We kept our old table and I re-stained it to match our new decor.

The chandelier was only $79 and completely changed the look of the whole room.

My Target shelves are also a fav, and I love changing up the decor on them. The grocery sign is also a DIY.

These farm animal prints are another small shop favorite from Haley at Little Bits of Everything Inc. I loved these and just knew they had to be in my house!

Our kitchen is on the small side, but 3 people can still fit without bumping into each other. We don't cook much, but anytime we have a get together or a party, the large breakfast bar is always full of food and people!

Just off the kitchen is a small hallway that had an awkward angled wall. The builder offered extra cabinetry, but with our budget it just wasn't an option we could upgrade. Now, I'm so glad we didn't!

I took that awkward space and made myself a little office. I love sitting here and writing my blogs and browsing Pinterest.

The shelving is another DIY using brackets from Lowe's and left over wood from our sofa table project. Another small shop favorite is Dawn from Eventually Cottage and her awesome family flashcard.

Another awesome space just for me! In our guest bedroom, I use the walk in closet as a craft room. It's just big enough for a desk and a chair, so all my supplies and storage are on the wall. I love that I can come in here start a project and if I don't finish, I just close the door!

Our laundry room is another one of my favorite spots in the house. This sign is a DIY made from a canvas, a decal, and some scrap wood.

Okay so I might have a shelf obsession, but these were another DIY and an alternative to an expensive builder upgrade. We added lower cabinetry in the laundry room, but couldn't afford the uppers. I found the brackets on sale at Target for $5 and used some old fence boards.

Our master bedroom is a work in progress, but Scooby doesn't mind.

I've been collecting some of my favorite decor to create a gallery wall full of love quotes and pictures of us.

The back patio is another one of our favorite hangouts. We love to sit and talk while the dog plays outside. Joe is also an avid gardener, and we BBQ every weekend. I wanted this outdoor space to be just as comfortable as the inside.
