We live in a nice, but builder-basic house in the Seattle area that we’ve worked hard to add our personality to. Sometimes that has meant tearing out perfectly fine cabinets to make way for a more country/modern look of open shelves. Other times it’s been as easy as painting the walls. Our home is our canvas and a place we love to share with our friends and family. Stop by on any given day and you’ll find neighborhood kids’ shoes littering the entry, projects half-done, my beloved pillows tossed to the floor and crumbs on the kitchen floor. I love making our house pretty, but it’s also a place where we do life. And sometimes that looks messy.
Here are a few favorite posts about our house:
The office was featured in the September 2013 issue of Better Homes & Gardens and our kitchen in the Spring 2014 BHG Kitchen & Bath Makeover issue and will appear in BHG Christmas Ideas Magazine Dec. 2015 (we’re still pinching ourselves!).
We love rearranging furniture, painting walls, tearing out carpet (!) and doing all we can to make our home feel more like us.
