HOUSE TOUR | Come Take a Tour of our New, Mountain Modern Home


– I’m taking you on a home tour today! (upbeat pop music) Hi ladies, it’s Erin and
welcome back to my channel. Through my channel, BusbeeStyle,
my goal, my mission, is to help women just like you,
who are busy juggling life, look like you have your act
together, even if you don’t. Today, I wanna show you
around our new home, it’s in Telluride, Colorado. We moved here, into this
house, about three months ago and it feels a lot longer, but it’s really only been three months. I know a lot of you have
asked for a home tour and I really haven’t
felt prepared to do that, because, you know, as you
move in to any new home, you have to develop new systems
and organizational systems and you’re unpacking and
you’re getting organized and settled, so just haven’t felt ready, even though we bought the
house fully furnished. There was still a lot of those t’s to cross and i’s to dot. I did videos on our decision to move here, why we moved here, why we
love it, and I’ll put links to those below, so if
you’re curious, you wanna know more about this area
in Colorado and why we moved from Texas to Colorado, you can check out those videos below. But I wanna get right to that house tour, so let’s get started. (upbeat house music) We have a deck on the third
level and that’s where the grill and the hot tub are. We have a great view of
the mountains, although it’s hard to see right now
cause it’s pretty cloudy today, but on a clear day, you
can see the mountains kinda up over these houses, it’s really a gorgeous, gorgeous view. So this is just a little
nook, a little eating area, it’s also kinda where the
kids can do their homework. At first I was like, “I
don’t know if we would really need this or use
this”, but we do use it, quite a bit. I love that it’s got the
built-in booth-sofa element to it, so it’s very cozy. Here’s a wet bar over here. We don’t drink, so that’s
not really an essential for us, it certainly
isn’t something we needed, so we’ve kinda stocked… There’s a few beers in
there, but it’s mostly soda. So the wet bar area has
a little sink and then two refrigerators right
there, which is really nice for extra drinks. I feel like we really use
that, that extra space for refrigeration. I’m on the lookout for a
painting for right here. What I really wanna do is a
painting of New York City. That’s where Chris and I
met, that’s where we both lived for a very long time and holds a special place in both of our hearts. Off of this hallway, you’ve
got a little powder room right there, for guests,
and then to the left is one of the bedrooms. This right here is a loft
area, I’ll take you up there in a second, but essentially,
it’s another space for the kids to play, to do homework. Chris was toying with the
idea of putting an office up there, but I don’t
think that’s gonna happen. We spend most of our time
in this room, obviously. It’s just the big main
living area with a kitchen. So its a big, open living
space, see the fireplace, and lots of seating and
then I love the kitchen also for, I don’t know, just
families and entertaining because you’ve got the bar
seating and then you’ve got the other seating so close by. One thing this kitchen
has that our old kitchen did not have is this huge refrigerator and I really, really love it. Today’s a really gray day, so it looks quite dark in here, but
on a typical sunny day, and it really is sunny
here most of the time, this room gets a lot of
light and so I always feel like it’s light and bright and airy and it’s just a nice space to hang out in. The kitchen’s a little
bit cramped on this side for cooking and, again,
there’s two of us in here, it’s a lot, but I love it
so I don’t care. (laughs) I don’t cook that much anyway, I mean, I really cook for
necessity, not because it’s my passion or my love. There’s a wine cooler here but, again, since we don’t drink,
we’re using that for sodas and waters and drinks for the kids. And we have the oven here and then you have another oven over here. Not sure we’ll use both
ovens a lot, we didn’t in the old house, either. I love the lighting in this house, all of the pendant lighting
and the chandeliers are all so modern and
interesting and funky and I just really love it. Okay, I’m gonna take you
up to the loft space. So this just slides right over. (ladder rolls and squeaks) And ya line it up with the entrance. I hadn’t anticipated doing
this with the camera, but let’s go for it. (Erin panting) It’s hard to see, there’s
these two giant beanbags and then there’s kind
of a daybed right there. And that’s pretty much it up here. So it could be an office
space, but it’s just climbing up that ladder
would be challenging I think. Okay, so let’s head back down. Slide that back over,
oh I forgot to show you, we do have a small pantry, it’s not like our Texas-sized pantry, but fits a lot. We also keep our cleaning stuff in here. Don’t really have an option, so we’ve just got nice hooks for everything. This is where we eat most of the time. It’s a nice big, long table. Again, for entertaining, it’s terrific. I love this chandelier,
it’s probably my favorite. One of the thing I wanted to show you before we move on is this. So the house is so vertical,
mainly because it’s very close to a ski trail and the lots are valuable, very valuable,
so they built vertically and also to give you better views. It’s not here right now,
so I just push three, it comes up to three. I usually keep it on
the base level because that’s where I would
load the groceries in, but I can call it up
here, like, if I wanted to send garbage down or anything down to the garage, I could. Okay, so it’s here, oh! Yeah, see, I sent this
stuff down the other day, I forgot about it. (laughs) So it’s like recyclables
and my shopping bags, so I put those back in
my car for shopping. And then I just close it up, like that, shut the door, and I’m gonna send it back down to one. So it’s there when I need it. This house also has, these are terrific, it’s a in-floor heat and
also has built-in humidity, so it pumps air through the
house cause it’s so dry here. So this is the powder room
I was talking about earlier. I found these really cool soap dispensers at a place called Bath Outlet. See how pretty that is, it’s very modern. And they had, also, toilet brush cleaners, so I bought this one, it’s
hard to see, but it’s blue. See, it’s just very nice. Hi, cutie! (laughs) – [Child] What are you doin’? – What am I doing, I’m taping you. And see, there’s a lot of
light flooding in her room. And she missed her room
in Texas, cause she did have a beautiful room
in Texas, so I told her she could put up these
My Little Pony decals. And it makes her feel
like it’s really her room. And then they, she has
a teeny-tiny closet, which is okay right now, cause
she has teeny-tiny clothes! The bathrooms I love in this house, they’re all so modern and nice. Just like all the choices, like I may not have picked this sort of river-rock look, but I like it and then subway
tile, it’s really pretty. (upbeat house music) This is my hall closet, it’s
where all my jackets are. So I use every bit of this closet. I do a lot of shoes in
here, jackets, and handbags and then some really long hanging pieces. So I definitely use that
closet, which I guess most people would use as
a coat closet, since it’s next to the door, but our master is small, so that’s my closet. So that dumbwaiter
stops on this level too. This is our bedroom, Chris and my bedroom. It’s a pretty big bedroom,
especially for Telluride. I almost was thinking,
like, “Why didn’t they use a little of this floor real estate and add it to the master closet?” And there’s a little deck
out here, which is nice. And then this is where
I work and it’s also where Chris has his desk set up. We didn’t really have
another option unless Chris decides to move up to the loft, this is where we’re going to stay. But he has an office in
town, it’s just really me during the day, working from here. And then here’s my
little gym in the corner. It’s all my workout
gear, so I just grab it from there and workout. But this is fine, for, I
mean, it works really well. This is a mirror that was
there, but I’ve ordered one to put right there, a
really nice floor mirror that actually is from
West Elm that will go with that counsel table. Alright, let’s go into the bathroom! I love this sink, trough
sink, really cool. And I like all of the fixtures and the color choices in here. I love the dark cabinets,
I like the pendant lights, I like the tile, I like all of it. It feels very spa-like in here and I, I like it, I like that. This tub is so deep,
when the kids get in it, all you can see is kind
of the top of their head, it’s like a swimming pool. There’s a TV right here, and then there’s a little, like,
potty room in here. I just, Chris just
installed these shelves, those are from West Elm. There’s a built-in TV right there so, I guess, if you’re spendin’
a lot of time in the potty, you can watch your favorite shows while you’re doin’ your business! I’ve really gone to great lengths to organize everything
in here so it stays neat. So I’ve got some trays down in there, and then I have kind of
essential toiletries in here. That cable makes it look
messy, but it’s really pretty neat in there. These are cool, I don’t know if you guys have seen these, it’s from Pottery Barn. It’s a smart sensor
light, so you can tap it, or it just goes on automatically. That’s our bedroom! This is built-in, so we won’t be able to monkey with that, it’s built-in. And then the closet, I’ll show you, there’s some built-ins also. I’ve already showed you guys the closet, but I’ll show it to you again! I just did a whole bunch of wash from my trip to Mexico,
everything was gross. And everything’s kinda
hangin’ dry right here, that’s the shelf that we put up, from Pottery Barn, remember that? And then these are built-in,
so that’s built-in, this is built-in. I got those bins from Container Store. I gotta keep it lean in here,
it’s not the biggest closet in the world. There’s another bedroom
here and it’s identical, basically, to the other
bedroom, just a little bit different decor but the same bones. This is where we put guests
and it’s a king-sized bed so its better for guests. Gets a lot of great
light in this room, also. And it’s got a small closet
and each of the closets has a built-in, built-in
dresser which is nice. Another bathroom that’s very modern and new. This is another closet
I’ve sort of commandeered because I have to. So I put t-shirts, shorts,
and sundresses in here, along with extra toiletries at the bottom. And I’ve gone to great lengths
to organize this as well. These shelves are from a
website called shelving.com and then over here you’ve
got extra sheets, towels, blankets, pillows, and that’s it. (upbeat house music) So this is our mudroom,
which is a vital thing to have here in Colorado. It’s very dirty and muddy
and you’ve got all seasons and it’s just an essential space. If you can figure it out
a way to have a mudroom, I think it’s up there with,
like, a master closet. We’re real excited to have this space so we can hang coats there. So in the winter, we can put
hats, gloves, and scarves in these cupboards and in these baskets. Last but not least, I
just wanna show you this quick little laundry room tour. Two dryers, one washer,
lots of storage down here. This is probably one of my favorite rooms in the house besides
the main living space. I just think it’s such a fun room. It’s where the kids can play and hang out, it’s kinda their space. All their toys are here,
the games are here, there’s the biggest television
in the house in here. It’s a really nice space for the kids. And I didn’t have that at the old house, I didn’t have, like, a kid room. And then these are bunks,
the top two are twin and the bottom two are full. Right below the fulls
are trundles, so those pull out as well and create
even more sleeping areas. So our sleeping room. And then the couch is also a futon. So if we had a couple
families comin’ to stay, you could just pile all
the kids in the bunks and the futon and maybe
even one on the floor and you have plenty of
room for all the kids. And then they have their
own little bathroom in here. This bathroom’s just fun and colorful, it’s got a lot of personality with the orange and the blue. That’s tile and there’s
also a shower down here. I don’t know if anyone’s actually used the shower down here. And they have a little
drink fridge down here. This is the garage and we’ve just recently had a garage overhaul and both of us are really excited about it. Chris worked really hard
installing that shelf right there, just up over
my car, and that has been a huge helper in
providing storage solution because, if we try to
park two cars in here, there’s not a lot of ancillary storage. So we’ve got the ski
rack to hold all the skis and the bike rack to hold bikes and the boot rack to
hold the boots (laughs) and another rack for the helmets. So we can fit both cars in here as long as we keep it organized like
this, which will not be easy, but we are going to try! So that’s a tour of our new home. Do let me know if you have any questions. Again we bought the home fully furnished, so I’m still trying to
figure out where everything is from, a lot of you
have asked about pillows and stuff like that. I think that I will hopefully glean some more of that information as I can search more for it. We also will be adding
some of our own personality into the home as we live here longer. You know, I’m one of those
people, wanna move in and get it all done right
away and my husband’s that same way, but I feel like
sometimes when you do that, you make mistakes or you
get things that you’re not totally in love with
or you haven’t had time to really assess the space
and get a feel for it and what you want and what you need! So I do think it’s important to kinda live in the space for a while before you start buying key items. I did do a video also on organization and how I kinda got the closets organized and some of the key areas organized, like the kid’s toys
and stuff, so if you’re interested in watching that video, I’ll put a link to that below. Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel, here’s the button right here. If you haven’t already,

  1. Thanks for the look inside! I think you made the right choice moving to Colorado. But I am totally biased I've lived here most all of my life. I personally think it's the most beautiful state with the most perfect weather! If you ever decide to do a meetup in Denver, that would be fantastic!

  2. Beautiful home! You can tell the owners who designed it loved to entertain ( ovens,wine coolers) LOL๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’•

  3. Love your house tour! Great spaces for your children. Yes closet space is important. Great way to get creative though. We had little closet space in our modern home in Northern Ca but after years of living there we remodeled and finally got some. Humidity system in your home! Amazing! Could use one here in Santa Fe! Dumb waiter is genius! So thrilled for yaโ€™ll living in a lovely mountain community. Small towns are fabulous!

  4. Amazing, functional and spacious! Love it! That kids' room is to die for! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปโ˜บ๏ธ

  5. What a lovely home!! I went to Telluride this past winter for a school ski trip, and it was so beautiful and fun even with no snow! You picked a great spot!

  6. Your new home is absolutely beautiful! Can really see why you fell in love with it. You know, though….I wouldn't put art work on any of the stone walls. The stone gives the feel that your home is built right into the side of a mountain. I like that feeling of home space integrated with nature; then have pics, etc., on other walls. Just me. Congratulations!

  7. OMG, you don't drink. I love you even more. Welcome to Colorado. I'm a new subscriber and a fellow Colorado girl. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Love your home Erin and as an Australian who has been to both Colorado and Texas, I can tell you I'd choose Colorado any day – in fact, my hubby and I fantasize about how nice it would be to live there. Such a beautiful part of your country. Modern homes are the best also imo – low on maintenance and more comfortable. I'm wondering if you have a spare room that you could fit out with mobile clothes racks and turn into a large walk-in-closet rather than having stuff spread all around the house?

  9. Love your home, Erin; just gorgeous! I always tell you this, but, I adore your videos! xoxo Josette

  10. You look stunning in your intro video. You got a beautiful home very happy for you. Thanks for giving us a tour. Greetings from Montreal.

  11. Such a great house. You are living your style as Robeson Design(A You Tuber) says. I am happy for you and your family. You can tell you are really thriving there in Colorado. So Deserving Erin. You are a gem on YouTube. Love your videos and newsletters. ๐Ÿ’•

  12. I love the bunk beds. Clever how one can pop out two more beds for that huge family that comes to visit every year. Any idea where the bunk beds were purchased? It fits so well into the space it makes me wonder if it was custom built. Gorgeous house. I love the layout. Itโ€™s interesting how you have to go up the stairs for the main family area. Where I live the main area is normally on the first level. But if youโ€™re in the mountains I would imagine the higher one is the better the view. Enjoy your lovely home.

  13. Erin–90,00!! That's phenomenal!!! I remember not too long ago you were just starting out. I love how your YT and blog reflect your own evolution, while you have maintained your warmth and girlfriend visiting with (1,000s of) girlfriends vibe. I appreciate your advice about style and design as well as your insights about life. Love and hugs from California!

  14. I absolutely love your new home and the modern style! Congratulations on finding a home you really love. I love the closet with your coats and shoes. Great organization!!!!

  15. Looks great! How do you keep your white furniture clean with kids? Also, any idea where the orange futon came from?

  16. I didnโ€™t realize the living areas are on the third floor..do you think the dumb waiter would hold me? Lots of stairs…..lol

  17. You have a very lovely home! How do you manage to keep your home with that much space and rooms so clean and spotless? ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Beautiful home Erin, modern and clear and such a scenery! I live in French Mountains, Pyrenees and I love it! The space, the fresh air, Nature makes me happy

  19. Erin, Beautiful home!
    I'd make a Coffee/Tea Bar where the wet bar is.
    Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for sharing your new home.
    Hugs~ Deborah

  20. BEAUTIFUL !!!! Very spacious and modern and Coloradoโ€™s a great place to live Iโ€™ve heard ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. I love your new home! Itโ€™s beautiful, and also all of that natural light is fabulous! Iโ€™m living in a small apartment in NYC with not a lot of natural light, so I really enjoyed your home tour.

  22. I'm from NJ and was just in CO for Memorial Weekend.. it's a different world from what we're used to, but we loved it. Specially the lack of humidity and all the nature related things we were able to do! good luck with your home, it's beautiful!!

  23. You could move your desks into the bedroom space and use that little room for a big walk in closet.

  24. What a beautiful home. Such a different style from your home in Texas!! That bunkhouse room is awesome! Your kids will love it when they're older!!

  25. Your home is beautiful. I have a little house envy. It looks like you could vacuum one whole level without unplugging. If I could make a suggestion for your laundry area, instead of having two dryers, replace one with a small washer/dryer combo. Itโ€™s sooooo helpful. You will thank me. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  26. What a beautiful home, love your minimal style, hope you 're continuing enjoying your new home, my Congrats, nice style,…….

  27. Thank you for showing us your home! I absolutely LOVE your home- the style, the furnishings, the decor! Very beautiful but still functional!!

  28. You have beautiful taste. I loved your home in Texas. It was so cozy. This home is beautiful too. I do think if you replaced some of the rugs with the oriental style you had in Texas, it would be more cozy. Just a thought. I love the stone wall! Both of your homes are absolutely beautiful. Iโ€™m curious as to how the weather is different in Colorado versus Texas. Hope you and your family have many more happy times wherever you happen to be. Love your taste in clothes and in decorating.Thanks for sharing!

  29. What did you do with all the lovely furniture in the Texas house? You had some stunning pieces!

  30. gorgeous but curious, does it gross you out to know others have "lived" on the furniture you now live on? I get grossed out about things like that even Luxury Hotel rooms so the though of buying a house with used furniture is not very enticing to me… just curious about how you feel about that or what your thought process was about it, so I can see & try to understand other viewpoints, thank you

  31. YO! I am *GOOD*..who am I messiah5th of guyzxcushiont 6 familiar ofguyzx caveman granddadofmyhubbyzx4since4fromdecorationofhubbyzx5

  32. Hi Erin, it's September & I'm just now watching your home tour. Did you ever find a NYC pic? I have the perfect NYC Canvas for that space, if you ever get up to Montana ( or I make it down to your area). Hit up Bug Lots… I found the most awesome bins for my linens. I am 100% OCD!๐Ÿ˜ฃ Love your Ski Chalet!๐Ÿ˜‰TFS!

  33. Beautiful and organized home. Welcome to Colorado. I've lived here for 15 years now and love it–Lots of "severe clear" skies, as my husband says.

  34. Love your new home! I'm looking purchase white dining room chairs. Those look really nice. Do you know where i can find them and how comfortable are they? Also, are they easy to keep clean? I have two children. Thanks for your time! Love your videos!!

  35. Hello,
    Love your new house, so much more modern, which suits you. You are a very organised person, puts me to shame. I love organisation and a lean cluttered look, I just don't happen to be able to achieve it!
    XXX Deborah from OZ

  36. Your home is beautiful!! Thanks so much for the tour, even though I know this is an older video๐Ÿ˜Š. The kid-room is AWESOME! Iโ€™m sure your kids love having their friends for sleepovers!

  37. White tile is more spa-like and the dark tile in the boy's bathroom makes it claustrophobic. I do like that the toilet is separated.

  38. Thank you Eric for Sean up for showing the house is beautiful it's really beautiful and I love all that weight I love it it's a beautiful home for you and your family God bless thanks for the tour bye-bye

  39. …That is a beautiful home. Miss Erin….I am not one for all the " hard edges, surfaces",lol…( I am that Eclectic / country French / mixed with a few classic styles.lol) but it looks nice in your home….and what matters is that you and your Family enjoy it and love living in that home ! Its really tastefully done and everything " flows' which is a big thing in ones' home. I wish you and your Family many happy times and sweet memories in your new home, Congratulations .
