Blogger Jessica Garvin of Garvin & Co., her husband Brandon, and their three girls moved from Georgia to Kansas City after falling in love with the city. The couple purchased a 1930s Dutch Colonial home and have spent the past six months renovating it to reflect a mix of their modern style and a re-imagined version of what it could have actually looked like in the ’30s. The result is a bright white family home that is worth your attention. Garvin shares a few of her favorite finished spaces with us—keep reading for all the reasons why we love her house.
The Festive Front Porch
Garvin excels at seasonal decorations. (Take one look at her Instagram and you’ll understand.) She nailed the perfect porch equation: Fall-colored mums, white pumpkins, and a basket full of fragrant greens are all you need. The doormat (here are our favorites!) serves as the personality-filled finishing touch.
The Expertly Renovated Kitchen
There’s so much to break down here, but let’s start with how dark and dated it once was (thanks to a renovation in the ‘70s). Garvin worked to add more storage—including a truly stunning island, white shiplap, a marble backsplash, and statement range. This kitchen gets an A+ in our book and is the epitome of renovation goals.
The Perfectly Wallpapered Powder Room
We’re suckers for a big print in a tiny powder room. Garvin wanted the space to feel like it was taken straight from your grandma’s house (ever heard of Granny-chic?) and it worked. This specific paper is from Anthropologie looks like it was made for this space.
