Second house in annual home tour

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

The split level home of Darryl and Jessica Jenkins is on display at the upcoming Tri Kappa Home Tour.
The second featured home on the annual Tri Kappa Home Tour is owned by Jessica and Darryl Jenkins.

Their home is located on a peaceful country road complete with a view of a red barn.

The yard is perfect for the Jenkins' young children and is complete with a playhouse.

Two wine bottle sculptures sit beside the front door, at night they appear as Christmas trees.

Inside this home, you will find many handcrafted touches.

The 2,500-square foot split level home was purchased this past April and the family has spent much time making the house their own.

The entryway is royal blue.

A large festive wreath hangs on the wall. Stairs lead up to the family room. The walls have a calming hue and a plush sofa awaits. A large family portrait is suspended on the far wall. The Christmas tree, framed by the picture window, is trimmed with red, gold and silver ornaments.

The homeowners opened up a wall and shirted part of the layout to make a large opening to the kitchen.

The kitchen is bright and inviting. A breakfast nook sits in one corner.

The island is convenient added prep space. A table, that Jessica has added personal touches to with ribbon, overlooks the family room and is a favorite spot for the children to snack on. The kitchen opens to a back porch.

The hallway is graced by a family tree. The limbs and branches were painted by Jessica.

Framed pictures of family are placed on the tree.

The first room belongs to son Dean. The walls are coated in classic boy blue, a small tree with touches of orange stands in the corner.

Daughter Emma's room is pure little girl. Shades of purple cover the walls and paint is flecked with sparkling glitter. A hand painted dandelion sprouts from one corner and wind swept seeds spread across the wall.

The master bedroom is bright green with white furniture. Fluffy, gray bedding and plush pillows top the bed. The headboard is a repurposed glass paned door. A branch motif is painted on the window panes. Flanking the headboard are trees crafted from garland.

Returning back down the hallway and taking the stairs to the basement will lead to the playroom.

The couple added wainscoting and painted the remainder of the wall gray.

Look closely, the walls here are flecked with glitter too!

Jessica transformed an unneeded door into a chalkboard for the children. A tree stands here, decked in toys.

A surprise waits upon exit of the playroom. The other portion of the basement is like stepping into a rustic cabin. The walls are stone covered and exposed wood hangs above your head. A sofa and counter height table and chairs offer ample seating.

In a new spin, a whimsical tree hangs from the rafters. The room is completed by a wood burning stove.

The Home Tour will be Dec. 2. The home of Micah and Sarah Workman and Clayshire Castle are also on display.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at Riddell National Bank or at any home on the day of the event.
