929 Home Tour Part one

September 21, 2016

Welcome to our home! We are so happy to have you here!

We moved into our renovated home a little over 2 years ago and to be honest, I thought I would be sharing my home tour with you immediately after we moved in, but my expectations were completely throw out the window. I’ve learned that it takes time to decorate your home and that’s ok! Jamie and I wanted to complete our home decor with pieces that we really loved, not just buy things for the sake of finishing it.

When we first moved in, we barely owned any furniture or decor. I had frames that were hanging on our walls without pictures in them because I was too indecisive, and for awhile, we had a mismatch of seating in our family room, but that didn’t change the way that our house felt. Coming home to each other and maintaining a posture of open hands with our home is what matters most.

929 Decor Inspiration

September 20, 2016

Moving in together after Jamie and I were married and blending our two styles was really fun! After planning a wedding together, we had a good understanding of each other’s style and what we wanted our house to look and feel like – Callie loves neutrals, mixing patterns and gold. Jamie loves manly wood, leather and comfort. We wanted to fill our home with things that we love, or that remind us of what we love. We both love the ocean, which is why our home is filled with images and a color palette that reminds of us it – neutrals mixed with bold textures and cool colors. We also both love to be outside, which is why we tried to bring outside in as much as we could–yes, I’ve become an indoor plant lady and I love it! I believe that there are no rules when it comes to designing or decorating your home. Fill it with what both of you love! Mix patterns and textures and play around with a color palette until you make it work! The effort is worth it for both of you to come home to place that feels like a place of rest and comfort.

Knowing all of this, I created an inspiration board to help guide our home decor!

929 Outdoor Renovations

September 16, 2016

Looking back at these before and after pictures has been so much fun and such a sweet reminder of all that we accomplished and more importantly, the blessing that this house has been to us. The outside of our house didn’t change too drastically. On the front, we framed in the outdoor breezeway between the garage and existing house, and added another window on the front. We also added new light fixtures, repainted, got a new garage door, and updated the landscaping.

I have to take a minute and brag about my incredible husband. Jamie landscaped our whole yard. He has spent countless hours in the yard planting, tending to our stubborn grass and dreaming about projects that he wants to complete over time. I am so proud of him and the way that he has improved our yard over the past two years.

In the back of our house, you’ll see the existing breezeway that was framed in and how it effected the structure of our closed in deck. Before you were able to access it from the front of the house, whereas now you can only access the deck from the door off of our kitchen. The existing deck was rotting and didn’t met standard code, so we rebuild it completely and stained it. In the back, you will also see the addition that we did to our master bedroom and how it changed the roof line and gave us a great little space underneath for a tool shed.

929 Guest Room + Study Renovations

September 15, 2016

It’s really amazing what a fresh coat of paint and new light fixtures can do to transform a room. In our guest bedroom and study we didn’t do any structural changes because they didn’t need them. Along with the rest of the house, we sanded and stained the hardwood floors, repainted, changed the light fixtures and changed the doorknobs. The only major change that you will notice is that we removed one window in the guest bedroom (to make room for our master bedroom closet) which caused us to lose some natural light but we believed it was worth it to have an awesome closet.

In the guest bathroom, we painted, changed the light fixture above the sink, changed the sink and shower faucets, and changed the knobs on the sink cabinet. Thankfully the existing tub/shower, sink cabinet, and tile were in really good shape and we love the classic white!
