Dust to Dazzle

 

A few weekends ago my parents and I, along with my mom's co-worker and her husband, went to the Dust to Dazzle Home Tour in Butte. Six historic buildings were included in the tour; some already remodeled, some still needing a little work. It was really fun but I only took photos of two houses because the rest were remodeled to look more modern and I didn't find them as inspiring! I've been bad at taking photos for blogging lately! I like my Instagram to be more of a creative outlet and my blog to be a creative outlet AND informational! Once I get my job situation figured out I will be better, I swaer!

The first home we went to, the big white house, had delicious snacks and drinks made by volunteers.

It had it on library which I love even though technically books aren't zero-waste ;) and it's own wine cellar which I loved even more. Personally I wouldn't have seating or a fountain in my wine cellar.

They also had a movie theater downstairs too with a little area for the kids to place. It was definitely not what I was expecting when I went down there.

The bathroom upstairs was really neat. I love minimalism and a clean, crisp look. My journey as a photography has completely changed my opinion on colors, light, home decor, and design. What you don't see behind me is a stand up shower and a sauna!

The bedrooms were definitely not my style. Each room has a different theme and when I mean different them I mean carpet to match. This bedroom was pink everywhere and another was blue with almost teal colored carpet.

I did love this old stove and the copper accents. Since Butte is known for its copper mines I think it's cool they included it a little. I think if I bought a home here I might try to add some copper to my kitchen, although I wasn't a huge fan of it being half way up the wall.

The Largey Flats were definitely one of my favorites. The designer, David, has amazing taste. Like I said I am very much a minimalist and like colors like grey and white. I actually asked him what color his bathroom was and he was kind enough to not only get the paint can but give me a paint swab.
