We've designed a total of 6 bathrooms (only counting our primary residences), and our current master bathroom is our favorite, bar none (pictured below). We LOVE our current master bathroom. Honestly, I wouldn't change a thing. The problem is that a part of me wants to copy and paste that bathroom into our new home, while another part of me doesn't want to do the same thing twice! Ah! I know what your thinking...."The drama! The suspense!"
Hi, Ty here! I have to admit that one of my favorite elements of travel is when you explore a place you perceive will be average; only to have it turn out extraordinary. This was precisely the case with the beautiful, central Californian city of Santa Barbara. While on our multi-week, cross country road trip from Michigan through Arizona, up the entire coast of California, through Salt Lake City and then back home, we found Santa Barbara to be our most pleasant surprise of all! Read more to find out what made our time in SB particularly magical.
So, this kitchen is small. We haven't worked in such tight quarters, ever, and are getting creative to make this thing feel like a million bucks. Because of the size, we're designing it to feel light, clean, and minimal. We want to keep the space modern, with a distinguishable Scandinavian influence, but don't want it to feel sterile. As we mentioned in this post, as excited as we are to try out simple living, we are also aware that it does not come without sacrifice, and there will be days when we miss our spacious Ada home. Thus, we have decided that we want to go all out in this place - maximizing design, function, and finishes.
Okay, it's time to fill you in on the details of our next move. We shared about the move briefly in this post. This is our 4th property in 4 years....so I know most of you can't really be that surprised. Let's take a walk down memory lane, shall we?
At this point, you can't be that surprised...4th move in 4 years! We were NOT looking for another property whatsoever, yet here we are. We adore our current home. We have poured our hearts and souls into this home (and the yard), fixing up every inch. We love our big beautiful oak trees, our mid century layout filled with windows, and the newly completed landscaping on our acre in the woods! For those of you who have watched us renovate our home extensively for the past year, you might be thinking, "WHY IN THE WORLD??"
I get asked about our Andes sofa ALL the time. We have now owned this sofa for a full year, so it's time for a review! Sofas are an investment. I knew that the sofa I purchased would be a part of my life for years to come, so I wanted to make sure that I was entirely in love with it. We searched high and low for the perfect piece, and this was it!
Our bedroom is finally coming together. Our bedroom always seems to be the last priority with each renovation. For months, we lived with nothing but the basics in this space - bed, curtains, nightstands. No decor, no personality. After a few months of reprieve from all things “home improvement” (we renovated our entire home in 100 days, and needed a break!), we decided to tackle this room.
