One 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!
Check out the mirror wall installation process I did here. The area looked so much different (ahem smaller) before.The area between the cabinets and ceiling in the kitchen is always so drab, so after much headache (and algebra) I was able to measure out a grey square pattern for the perfect fix.
Clearly I love a mixture of patterns and textures. That deer hide was from my first hunt in Comfort, TX and will soon be reupholstered into a chair! And here’s a tutorial on how to create your own animal wall art, like these cuties!Love this zebra pillow I picked up from a little boutique during my adventures in Spain. Designing my home around pieces like this makes it feel much more special. Since I work from home, it was important to make a designated desk space that I enjoy looking at – check out my tutorial on this bold pattern wallpaper. And of course artwork from @blairz just makes everything better. Check! Guest bedroom. Master bedroom. AND most importantly, the master walk in closet!Having a private patio seems to be rare for a condo, so this was definitely a major selling point for me. Perfect for a little afternoon bask in the sun!
Hope you’ve enjoyed my home and found some ideas and inspiration for yours! Happy designing! <3
