project: house to home.

Jun 11, 2012

This is our new place. It needs some work.
I am putting my pride aside in order to show you the BEFORES before I have the AFTERS, because...
I would like you to come along for the ride.

If you have seen my Pinterest, you know how much I love a warm + cozy looking home.
That's what I am shooting for.

I know that this house isn't exactly right out of a Jane Austen novel, but I do believe that being creative can bring about some extraordinary results.

Being on a tight budget means that we will have to tackle one project at a time.
It will require a lot of patience
(which I am currently running low on. Wallpaper, I don't like you. Not one bit).

Regardless, I am so looking forward to making this place a home.
Once it is all completed I will sit back, sigh & smile. I will appreciate all of our hard work, because
we will have made it our own.

I love home design.
Love it.
I just hope that my love for it = I can design (haha).

I am hoping that this will serve as inspiration for you if you are planning on doing some work on your home as well!

  7. Lay your humility aside... Or rather, put it in the attic that you fearlessly explored lol...this is gonna set this blog on fire! I'm so so so excited to watch all your projects unfold!
