East Louisville home boasts “Little House on the Prairie” vibe

Carol Shutt describes her east Louisville home as a diamond in the rough.

“We feel so fortunate to have found it,” she told The Courier Journal.

She and her husband, David — who are now officially empty nesters — rightsized from having 10 people in a seven-bedroom house to just the two of them in their three-bedroom home.

“Having a country home but being right by the city is what lured us here,” Carol added, “and my husband and I have always loved log homes. This was the perfect scenario because it was a more contemporary and functional build, but it had the log warmth and appeal.”

“We got to decorate (this house) the way my heartbeat goes — and my dad always said I should live in the little house on the prairie,” Carol said with a laugh. She says there isn’t a specific term to describe her personal interior design style, but she’d refer to it as creative and eclectic — a look that lends itself to the home, as well.
