House Tour


Welcome to our home.

It is nothing big or fancy, just someplace we have put a lot of work and love into. We have worked hard to transform each space into something we love.

My husband and I bought our house in 2006, just shortly after our 1 year wedding anniversary.  It is approximately 1,700 sq ft, two story home, with 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms and a office/bonus room. It was built in 1997, and had old dingy carpet, yucky wallpaper borders in almost every room, gold light fixtures and an ugly kitchen. We managed to tackle almost every room in the house.

  5. I love it! Your home is so crisp, but has just enough color and texture to feel homey and not like a model home that feels untouchable and sterile.

    Where did you get your striped euro pillow shams? Please don't tell me you made them...or if you did, could a novice such as myself make them, too?? lol!
