When Tracey Tomlinson purchased the lot her home is now on in 2008, she knew exactly what she wanted to create. She enlisted the help of builder Tray Brinegar and Architect Stan Bailey to make her dream home a reality and got to work. With Tray’s help, Tracey was able to include her own personal style to various details throughout the house during its construction.
The home was completed in January of 2009 and Tracey quickly began adding her element of design to the interior. The home has three bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, a covered porch, outdoor pool and dock on the river. It is a place that not only feels like home, but is close to family as Tracey’s parents live in the home next door. Tracey was born and raised in Columbus and moved to her new home in Hamilton in 2009 where she has made an oasis that suits her family perfectly.
With the help of her mother, Tracey decorated in a traditional style that was built around her two beautiful daughters, Shelby and Mackie and incorporating their artwork throughout the house. An inviting and cozy atmosphere was the goal and Tracey certainly achieved her goal.
Their home is a place where kids, friends, family and their two dogs, Bell the Vizsla and Liviee the German Shorthair Pointer, come to spend time together. The porch is a favorite spot where time is spent hanging out, watching sunsets, eating dinner, and working on homework.
Some say home is where the heart is and that certainly rings true for the Tomlinson’s, but it’s also where the art is according to Tracey who says that 90% of the art in her home was created by her girls. The art ranges from when the girls were much younger to more present designs, and provide a constant reminder of Tracey’s love and admiration for her daughters.
