Our Family Room

Today, I'm excited to share with you my favorite room in our house. Our family room! This was the room that gave me the vision when we first walked through the house! I immediately fell in love with the wood beams and the arched fireplace. Those two things kept me going when things were so overwhelming I wanted to cry (and sometimes did!). There ...

‘Before & After’ of a New Chair and CSW Designs

I picked up this fabulous vintage sitting chair at an antique shop in Logan, Utah at the end of December. My in-laws moved there a few months ago and whenever we visit, we always take the truck because the visit isn't complete without loading up at the fun stores along Main Street. I fell in love with the wood frame of this chair and knew right ... [Continue Reading]

Kitchen Details and Buying Sources

  After I posted pictures of our new kitchen, I had quite a few emails and comments requesting more information about the transformation. I've also had a lot of emails about the paint color we used throughout the house. I'm planning on doing another post later this week about that, so for now, here's the details on our kitchen ...

Our Kitchen

Let's chat about our kitchen today. This is, by far, the room I lost the most sleep over. I knew exactly what I wanted, but was lovingly told a few million times that this would not be my dream kitchen. When we build in a few years, maybe then will I get exactly what I want....(marble countertops, farmhouse sink, cupboard-front appliances...etc.) ...

Our Dining Room

So, today I'd like to share some pictures of our dining room. Ideally, I wish this little room was a tad bigger, but I'm coming to enjoy how cozy it is. The biggest drawback for me is that there isn't enough room for a hutch. When I let my beloved black hutch go to a new home last fall, I consoled myself, knowing that I had no plans for black ...

Our Living Room

I have to admit, I was feeling a bit discouraged for the first two months of living in our new house. Exhausted from moving and from the holiday rush, I was feeling in such a decorative rut. I had spent the last few months buying things I thought would work perfectly in the house and had a folder full of inspiration pins on Pinterest, and in the ... [Continue Reading]

Custom Project: Before and After

My darlings, we've been working on this 1930s bedroom set for a client that recently purchased it from the original owners. It is, by far, the most charming set I've seen in a while. Ideally, I would have loved to have been able to stain it back to its original rich dark color, but since it's veneer plated, we decided on shabby. Last night we ... [Continue Reading]
