In my next life I want to be a part of the Dipert. family. I feel like their home is a treasure trove of goodies just waiting to be unearthed. I’ve pored through the gallery a hundred times now, and I’m still finding new little corners to love. This morning we went behind the blog with Lidy, and now we’re taking a closer look at her incredible eclectic home! Big hugs to Christine Choi for capturing it all so beautifully.
From Lidy… Since this area was the first room you walked into when entering our home, I wanted it to feel more elegant and inviting, the way I imagined a proper dining room to be. The pops of gold add a real wow factor that didn’t blend in and get lost in all the white and neutrals. They felt a little more “dressy” which is what I needed to balance the living and dining space. They also create a nice triangle with our chandelier, which is easy on the eyes. Our DIY Hexagonal Table fits this small area perfectly, while seating our family easily! Overall, the two rooms feel like they have their own distinct identity.
The living and dining area are basically one big conjoined room. This was a little bit of a challenge, but we were able to make it work where they felt like two separate spaces. With the living room we added a DIY Modular shelvingunit as a focal point, as well as some other handmade pieces like our Brass Swing Lamp and coffee table. This room is full of thrifted treasures and handmade pieces. I wanted the colors and tones to feel nostalgic, while staying true to that mid century modern feel.
This space is really an extension of our breakfast nook. It’s a compilation of thrifted and flea market finds, as well as more DIYs, such as the pipe pendant light. It’s quite a small space, so we limited the furniture to one mid century cabinet and a few smaller stools. The wood accents give the space a nice warm tone to help the area feel a little more inviting.
The breakfast nook is a room that is often overlooked in our home. But really, it’s such a sweet surprise when you stop and take it in. It’s just a little area between our dining room and kitchen. It’s the perfect little spot to have your morning coffee or do a little work in. All the items in this space are a collection of our flea market finds, with the exception of a few items.
When my husband and I became instant parents to two toddlers, we had to instantly change around our living quarters, happily of course! Our old bedroom became our son’s bedroom (now shared with his baby brother, the nursery (because technically we were expecting only one baby) became our daughters room and my husband’s music studio became our master bedroom. There was a very small storage closet, a built in desk and a few drawers which was enough to fit all my husband’s clothes and belongings in. For me that wasn’t the case!
We decided to build a fun exposed closet made of pipe, as well as a shelving unit around our bed! We also found a beautiful midcentury dresser to complete the room. I think this space has evolved into such a cozy and relaxing area of the house! Every time I walk in, I just feel calm – the white walls help the space feel bright and happy! Our DIY shelving unit is the perfect place to display all the fun pieces we’ve collected over the years. I love that this room is built primarily around DIYs, like our Industrial Curtain Rod, Vintage Basket Light Fixture and Recovered Burke Chair!
Our daughter’s room is truly a direct reflection of her bright and bubbly personality! I was shopping on a budget, so it was a fun challenge! Violet is both silly and sincere and I think you can really sense that by the bright and vivid colors next to the grey walls, which really help keep the room balanced. We also created some pieces just for her, like her DIY Mid Century Doll House
This room was so much fun to design. I really had to work agains the dark green walls and it seemed to work with our Modern Summer Camp theme! The room is full of fun flea market finds and thrifted pieces. It really gives the room so much character and I know the boys have a lot of fun in their own little space.
