Flip That Fireplace

Flip That Fireplace

  Pardon the interruption in blog posts… sick baby = blog is not the highest priority.  Evie’s not sleeping through the night anymore and it makes it tricky for us! Anyway, here’s where we left off with the fireplace in our kitchen: Allow me to blow your mind with how we’ve started to transform it!...
We Sorta Have A Back Porch!

We Sorta Have A Back Porch!

Lots of progress on the sun room conversion to back porch to share with y’all!  I am in love with how it’s turning out.  I can see David, Evie and me hanging out back here next summer… so cool! Originally we had 4×4 posts as columns supporting the roof on our new back porch. But...

Kitchen Floor Ideas

When deciding what kind of floor to lay above our new sub-floor in the kitchen, David and I spent a lot of time thinking about our options… Brick Floors Beach Style Kitchen by Santa Ana Interior Designers & Decorators Darci Goodman Design Farmhouse Kitchen by Arrington Cabinets & Cabinetry Timeless Kitchen Cabinetry This was originally...
New Kitchen Sub-Floor

New Kitchen Sub-Floor

If you look closely at the floor in the picture below, taken a few months back, you’ll observe a startling feature: the floor dips about two inches to the right!  It’s definitely two distinct levels that kind of slope together. That’s because the two sub-floors are two different materials and two different heights.  To the left,...

Decreasing the Fireplace, Increasing the Space

Sorry for not posting anything in a while– each time I tried to log on, my account was blocked because apparently there were hacking attempts/ security breaks!  Crazy!  I’m in now though, and it’s time to share a BIG change in our kitchen: BEFORE:   AFTER: This is the view from the hallway looking into the...
Paint Colors of 2015

Paint Colors of 2015

New year, new paint colors!  Am I right?  Here’s a look at what top paint companies/ magazines/ decorators/ color-minded people are calling the paint colors of 2015! Pantone   To me, Marsala looks like a light red wine– a claret maybe?– and frankly isn’t too exciting.  I was kind of disappointed by Pantone’s choice.  It’s...
New Roof On the Back Porch

New Roof On the Back Porch

  Hi there!  Hope everyone’s 2015 is off to a great start! These pictures are old but I hadn’t gotten around to posting them yet so here goes: we have a new roof on our back porch, and we stained our French doors! Keep in mind, we didn’t do this part of the renovation ourselves....

Happy New Year!

Hello all!  Just a quick note to say hi, and Happy 2015!  We spent the past two weeks in Charleston visiting family and had a great time.  Hard to believe 2014 is over… that was really the fastest year of my life.  I’ve got lots to share with y’all on the blog over the next...
Charlottesville Real Estate

Charlottesville Real Estate

A while back I posted about beautiful farmhouses for sale in the Charlottesville area and I thought I’d share some new ones on the market with you!  These are just to-die-for-beautiful.  (No, I’m not being paid by any real estate company to broadcast these– I wish!– but I just like to swoon over pretty farmhouses...
Christmas Windows

Christmas Windows

Last year I was out of town for 2 weeks in December on a business trip; this year I’m practically bedridden due to two fractured heels.  Nonetheless, the show must go on and that can’t stop Christmas from coming.  It will come without ribbons!  It will come without tags!  It will come without packages, ribbons...

Completed Turquoise And Beige Nursery

  Happy Saturday night, y’all!  (In case you were wondering, why, yes– I am sitting at home on a Saturday night and David and I are about to have a Scrubs marathon while Evie sleeps and we eat frozen dinner and drink some local red wine.  This is actually heaven to me these days.)  I...
