Our Current House

We’ve been in our “new” house for about a year and a half.  Although the house is new to us, it is almost a hundred years old, so it has definitely presented us withe plenty of challenges.  Some of our spaces are mostly done, but some are definitely a work in progress!  Below is a room-by-room tour of before and after pictures with links to some key projects and updates.

  1. Amazing job(s)! My husband and I have been renovating our 100+ year old home for 40+ years, so I am truly impressed by all you have accomplished in such a short time. We are now into our third reincarnation of some spaces, which means that my whole house coordinated decorating is not completely in sync at the moment. I love that your projects are beautifully coordinated, which I think is essential to a “peaceful” atmosphere. Thanks for sharing.

I welcome your feedback, ideas, and comments!
