Our Den + Powder Room Reveal

After six weeks and much ado, I am sincerely thrilled to be sharing our den and powder room makeover with you! With the completion of these two rooms, nearly the entire downstairs of our home has been transformed since we moved in three and a half years ago. It feels so good to have finally shown this area some love. Before scrolling, revisit the before photos and my original mood board!

Our Master Bedroom Makeover Reveal

After living in our house for a little over three years, I am so so excited to finally be sharing the reveal of our master bedroom makeover! It took so long to make our bedroom a priority, and it’s also a particularly small master bedroom, so my goals were to make it feel cozy yet resort-like in the way the best Airbnb bedrooms always feel. The new paint color from EasyCare® Ultra Premium Paint is the pièce de résistance of the room and the element that brought it all together.

One Room Challenge: Making Over Our Home Office + Powder Room

I am so excited to be joining my first One Room Challenge as a guest participant! If you’re not familiar with the One Room Challenge, it’s a semi-annual design extravaganza where bloggers, content creators and Instagrammers make over a room in their home in six weeks while sharing weekly updates. I’ve toyed with the idea of doing it in the past, but this time I’m officially on the bandwagon and so excited.

Celebrating One Year in The Sweetest Old House

A year ago today, Bob and I carried a little baby girl into an attorney’s office across town. There may have been a lot of nerves. There may have been some pinching to be sure we weren’t dreaming. We sat across a big wide table, with our tiny girl sitting with us, and thanked the now former owners for selling us their childhood home. Their parents bought the house in the early 1950s (making us only the third or fourth owners of our 100+ year old house) and having lost their mother in her 90s back in 2014, it was a bittersweet day for them as they said goodbye to more than six decades of memories.
