Home sweet home.

living room againOne of my greatest accomplishments was the purchase of my first home back in 2013. I remember looking at quite a few properties and feeling discouraged because most were either out of my price range or had multiple offers that I just couldn’t compete with. I didn’t even see my place listed on MLS, but I happened to stumble upon it when I was viewing another unit across the street with my realtor. Once we walked in, I just about gasped – from the layout and great energy, to the tongue and groove ceilings, it was just utterly perfect. That was the day I realized it’s true – when you know, you know. So I closed the deal and officially became a homeowner!

Now three years and countless trips to Home Depot later, I finally feel like I put my stamp on this little slice of paradise. I’ve been a busy bee painting, reupholstering and everything in between over the years and have documented some of it along the way, but I wanted to formally invite you to come check out my home sweet home. Come on in!

Tribeza Interiors Tour 2016

One of my all time favorite events was a couple weeks ago and I’m still gushing about it…

Tribeza held it’s 3rd annual Interiors Tour (check out my write up on last years tour here), where local interior designers graciously open up their homes to the public, so you can walk around in awe, staring at chinoiserie wallpaper for hours – yes! Each home is a reflection of the designers aesthetic and simply put, I get pretty jellybeans. Every home has something that inspires you or makes you think of incorporating unique elements to your own space in different ways (never thought of adding art over a mirrored fireplace?). Check out some pics from the tour below…
