Update- New House

Since my last post we have made a major life change. We left our little ranch that we put our blood, sweat and tears into for another fixer upper. I went back through my posts and saw this I wrote back in June.  It was about the house we ended up buying. After I wrote this post, the house went on the market. It sat for a while. In the meantime, we went under contract on two other houses that ended up not working out. This house was always in the back of my head. 

There is a lot of good. I am a sucker for a Williamsburg colonial. I see dormers and dentil molding- I melt. It is on a cul-de-sac in a great school district.  Most importantly, it really feels like home to us. 
 There is a beautiful formal living room and it has old pine floors. 

With the good, comes some bad. Like knotty pine walls... 

 green carpet... 

 original appliances from the 60's. 

We have already done so much to make it feel like home. I cannot wait to share our projects with you.

Wallpaper Files: Clarence House 'The Vase'

Clarence House 'The Vase' is an instant statement that can stand the test of time. How would you ever choose a color? I am leaning towards the brown or tan.

Feeling Inspired

One of my favorite wallpapers of all time. It comes in so many insane color ways.
I commissioned a painting with Sally for my 30th birthday that was inspired by the colors in this piece. 
The smallest splash of this iconic fabric can change an entire room. 
Mahogany Antique Pieces
I have been SLOWLY(really slowly) buying a few good antique pieces that should last a lifetime. 

I have visions of a lacquered library.

House for Sale in North Hills

It is a bittersweet day. We have been house hunting for the better part of a year. We even listed our house last year after we found a house. The house ended up falling through and we decided that we would stay put with a baby on the way. I feel like you never fully appreciate your house until it is time to move on. I am feeling a little sad as we get it ready to list again. 

We plan on listing the house next week.  If you have any friends who are in the market please pass this along. We will consider offers prior to listing.  My email is
