City Exploring

City Exploring

Something weird happened this summer. We didn’t take the first trip to the beach. I don’t even recognize us! Since when have we bypassed the opportunity to enjoy the warm Atlantic waves? It almost doesn’t seem natural. I can cut us some slack, though. It was a huge undertaking to finish the new build and […]

Kitchen Update

Kitchen Update

Linen panels to flank a triple window  soften a space filled with wood and more wood. These are the only curtains we plan to hang because all the single windows host woven wood shades with ease. Simplicity is working well for us in the modern farmhouse.

Modern Farmhouse {Landscape Design}

I’m an outdoors kind of girl, so vibrant green contrasting against blue skies does something for me! I actually experienced about eight years of farm living in my early years of childhood, so I think all things natural and lovely connect me to my youth filled with endless days of exploring woods and fields (and […]

Just Keep Swimming!

We’re swimming, alright! In non-stop rain! Make mental note: Driveway installation will be tricky during the months of May and June! But it will happen- I have faith!

Almost Move-In Time!

Almost Move-In Time!

You know when the art work appears you’re getting close! It’s like the final step of getting dressed for the day- put on some jewelry! The reason why you’re looking out the bathroom window is because the blinds are being made as I type! Oh, I can’t wait to see them installed! I’ll be sure […]

How About That Gable Feature?

How About That Gable Feature?

I’m surprised the accent piece made it in one piece until this week’s installation. We stored it in the garage for several months, and I had plenty of opportunity to hit it while parking! But now she is hung! Jordan wanted to get into the decorating-before-you-move-in-action and chose this piece as her first personal touch to […]

Slow & Rainy Week

Slow & Rainy Week

The winter season provided plenty of great weather for our new build project. Everything progressed speedily, and once we got the house under roof, we didn’t battle against the elements. We did, however, have great amounts of mud tracked inside when the rain came. The rain came and it keeps coming. Everything is beautifully green and […]

Rustic & Modern

Rustic & Modern

Like I have said before, the kitchen demands the most attention in a new build project. I started to design ours seven months ago, and the decision-making continues! But, we’re getting close! Here is today’s update- a little something shiny the hubby picked out… When he found this feature there was no changing his mind. […]
