Welcome back to Home of the Week! I'm featuring this sweet home located on the northeast side of Cedar Rapids and it's packed with charm. A new roof (2017), updated appliances, updated A/C and Furnace and a 2 car garage (2009) are among the mechanical features while hard wood floors, fresh carpet and a screened in porch make this a home that you want to call yours. Let's take a closer look!


You'll find a welcoming splash of citrus in several rooms throughout the home. Lime walls add a bright and inviting feel to the living room when you walk in. I like that they kept the adjacent dining room a muted color to compliment the lime rather than distracting from it. This feels balanced and cozy - something that can be hard to do when working with bold colors!

I'd add a large rug to soften things up along with furniture to complement the lime and several lamps to keep this space bright throughout the day.


The living room opens up to the dining room. A mirror, floating shelves or a unique plate wall (like this, or this!) over a small buffet are a few ideas that would make this room pop while utilizing wall space to store a few family heirlooms or favorite pieces. 


I had to take a minute to show off this bathroom! You can see the bold tile in the previous picture which makes this room stand out. The bold blue freshens this up and the subway tile gives it a modern yet classic update. 


Creamy orange brightens the kitchen - did you notice the perfectly coordinated orange-themed hand towels? Your subtle efforts did not go unnoticed! You'll also notice the vast amount of storage found in the kitchen. A small room boasting well thought out storage is always a win!


Just off this kitchen you'll find a large bonus room. Would you use this large space as a bedroom? An office? Or maybe a craft room?


This beautiful screened in porch was added 6 years ago and may have been one of the best additions the owners could have added. Floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors and recessed lighting make this space stand out! Plenty of room to comfortably seat 6!


A quick peek at the back yard rounds out our tour. Doesn't that screened-in porch give this home just the touch it needed?

One thing is for sure, the yard isn't lacking space or attention to detail! The lush landscaping and roundabout sidewalk perfectly compliments the home.

Be sure to view this home in person, this Sunday, September 30th from 12:30 - 2 pm or contact Teri Fleming, the listing agent, to set up a showing.
