eden lang's home

after attending alt summit this january i made the personal goal of composing my posts with a bit more honesty and a little less panache. fixing up our house is overwhelmingly satisfying but it isn’t all puppy dogs and rainbows, i need to get real, and lasso you all into the realness while i’m at it. if my inspiration from alt for writing more personally isn’t enough, the musings of eden lang are. she is the most poignantly candid blogger i have ever read. not only are her composition skills out of this world, but she’s a talented photographer, mother and home renovator.
the canadian rock-star and her family have done a sensational job fixing up their calgary, alberta homestead. without hiring a contractor they have made over their entrance hall, kitchen and playroom. her husband daylan puts the term handyman to shame. wool carpet, tiger wood flooring, custom railings, ikea cabinetry and richlite countertops are only a few of the glamorous materials gracing their transformed home. feast your eyes on the lang family’s renovated residence below and then go directly to eden's fantastic blog and website to soak in the amazingness of her.

i'd especially like to thank eden for granting me the permission to feature her home and photos!

  2. Eden's home is incredible, but the kitchen sold me (I told you, the kitchen always gets me). I'm just imagining the meals I could cook there...

  4. They have the ability to withstand the heat of this type of material is fine with the activities in the kitchen. As for kitchen countertops are considered, the' use of granite inserts a rich look to it.

  7. The After makeover seems kind confusing whether it's indeed the same homes. I do believe that they are the same but extra pictures or different positions could do a better job to the readers.
