Next up on the renovation list is Eden Jo’s bedroom. I had so much fun with this room! I think besides kitchens, little girls bedrooms are my favorite spaces to decorate. You can go super whimsical and not feel like you’ve gone overboard. I want her to have a room that she can easily grow up in but still love it at 10 years of age.

If you missed it, we finally posted our first renovation webisode yesterday! As I promised, I am going to go through each finished room to give you the list of sources. Let’s start with the living room.
This room is in the middle of the home. It’s the first space that you see when you walk in. I wanted it to be bright and modern. As far as renovation goes, all this room needed was a fresh coat of white paint on the walls and fireplace and the removal of some major popcorn ceiling. We also removed the old drapery and removed the crystal chandeliers. The floor is in great condition, so thankfully nothing needs to be done to them. For the styling of the room, I chose vintage pieces of furniture and mixed them in with newer, modern pieces. I also mixed old art with new art. I will continue to add art to the main wall and of course I will keep adding plants, because why wouldn’t you??!

Well, here it is folks! Our first renovation webisode! When we originally bought this home, we knew that we wanted to create a forever home for ourselves. It’s not a flip and it’s not a temporary space for us. It really is and has become the home of our dreams. In this first webisode, we give a tour of the home before the renovation, and a tour of 5 of the completed rooms. We still have the kitchen, bathrooms, family room, man cave and exterior to finish, which will all be documented at a later time.
Also, I will be posting photos of each of the renovated rooms over the next few days.
A huge thank you to Dan Dunson of Blue Chip Media! You have video needs? He’s the man.
Do you ever dream of having a little vacation cabin by the lake? Lately it’s been at the top of my wishlist. My husband and I have been wavering back and forth between wanting to add onto our home or eventually buying a vacation cabin in the woods. I never thought I’d say it… but I think the cabin may be winning.
Previously, I was always in favor of investing more into the place where we spend the most time. But the more comfortable I get with the current size of our house, the more I start envisioning a cozy retreat where our family can enjoy the summers, as well as the winter holidays. Granted, it won’t happen for a while. But there’s no harm in gathering a little inspiration in the meantime, right?
Just because you’re in a cabin doesn’t mean it has to feel like one. If you’re wanting luxe, this is the way to go. The mix of lighter woods, concrete, and black steel framing is so spot on. And a Hans Wegner chair is always a nice little addition.
