I do so many postings in my home that I thought this would be a nice place for new readers to get a snapshot of my home and style in one place.
Let me say upfront, my house isn't huge, it isn't fancy, and it is certainly a work in progress. I do this only because I love home decor. I really considered it when picking a college major (I chose Communications instead!), but was discouraged by family. Being the first in your family to go to college puts a little pressure on you to make sure you get a job when you get out. I am a professional event planner now, so I get to play a little in the area. But, I definitely spend my free time and money on my home and hobbies that allow me to use my creativity.
We bought our home in March 2008- just 10 days before I did IVF that led to our Christmas blessing, Abby Lu. Our home was less than 2 years old and had been lived in for 7 months and empty for 7 months. We fell in love immediately! For someone who loves House Hunters on HGTV, we bought the 2nd house we saw. We looked at 3 in total. Crazy! With a baby coming so quickly after moving in, we spent the last year making the revisions we wanted since the first two years were nursery prep and survival!
I would describe my style as Americana. My favorite color is red and I love it mixed with denim, khaki and black. I try to keep it cohesive and comfortable. My husband does not go for pillows that can't be laid on or hand towels that can't be touched. I love him and he pays the bills too, so I try and honor his simple requests.
Here are links to various rooms in our house with home improvement projects built in!
Husband's Office- coming just as soon as he cleans it :)
