Finally! My New (old) Front Door

I’m pretty stoked about this new (old) front door situation, guys! Where do I begin? Our old front door was one of those gross aluminum storm windows that people of the 80’s liked to replace old beautiful wood storm and screen doors with. Our aluminum storm door was not only super ugly but it was also installed in a v. uncool crooked sort of a way, and there was nothing that could be done to fix it, except replace it. Replacing the front door has always been high on my to-do list, but never READ MORE

Coming Home to a New Rug

Hey Guys. Sorry for the radio silence. I didn't intend to be gone so long. The kids are on summer vacay, and now that everyone is kinda old, summertime has been really fun! The boys' friend Elsa is staying with us during the weekdays -- we've been spending mornings at the beach for swimming lessons, and evenings at the park for little league.

Dudes! My front porch has been kind of magical lately. I should say, it's always been magical, but now it's really magical. If you've followed along, you know that I have always struggled when it comes to designing this space. The biggest challenge of course is the small size, it's a front porch, so it's tiny. It comes off about seven feet from the front of the house and is about 20 feet long, oh, and there is the entry to our house right in the middle of it. It's been a difficult to find READ MORE

Stoop!!!

This post has been such a long time in the making. It makes me so happy that I might fill this post with overly positive words and phrases. You guys!, six year, that's how long it's been since we moved into this house. Six years ago I was staring at an ugly white house decked out with lots of mint green trim, green stairs, green awnings, and no landscaping to speak of. I swallowed hard when I agreed with my Jeff that this was the best house for us. Was it my dream house? Let's just say it had READ MORE
