I’m overwhelmed like 70% of the time, especially since this renovation often feels last on our list right now with Josh’s new job here and life with kids plus schoolwork and navigating the drastic changes 2020 has brought us by way of a new state and community and chapter of life. Hello! Much love from London, Julie It just summarise it well for me. Love the headboard and accent wall btw. We realized if we put a back door in by the laundry room, it could be the kids’ main entry point from the pool and since we have a water hook up already in that space, we can create a small half-bath right there for them as well. So inspirational:)))))). It’s really beautiful! It’s so cheery & bright you your fam bam. With a big yard and so many dreams to fill it!we started renovating it as much as our budget allows and hope to move in in 2 months! I adore the mixed textures. BEAUTIFUL!

We are here for your journey in growing and (re)building your beautiful new home with your kids in Arizona! this apartment is so gorgeous! Whenever they needed to use the bathroom, they had to run from one side of the home through several rooms to the other side of the home leaving behind a trail of puddles since there isn’t a bathroom anywhere near the pool. We looked at pitching the ceiling and taking advantage of the attic space in the main living areas, but the price (or bid as they call it) for a project like that had a jaw dropping price tag reaching six figures (and we wouldn’t be able to live in the home during that part of the renovation for 9 months or more). world. Anthropologie is my go to as well for decor. Because you are just authentic and show the world — that love wins at the end of every day, no matter how hard the storm might be. SO cool. I am hopeful some simple maneuvers like these will help make the space still feel open and big despite not being able to raise the ceiling and expose the attic beams. it’s so apparent their home stylists really love what they do and are also invested in helping to really personalize your space to you and your lifestyle. now people don’t have an excuse to not visit us.
