Home Tour Progress Reveal on Design Sponge


If you've been following along, you know since we bought our house a little over 6 months ago we have been full steam ahead - moonlighting as home improvement buffs and tackling projects every weekend.  We've painted every room, removed 15 radiators, repaired walls, laid new floors in the basement apartment and tiled a screened in porch to name a few (you can see all our home improvement projects to date here).  I'm thrilled to reveal of a lot of this hard work is being featured in an awesome article on Design Sponge

Some people have already reached out to ask about product sources, so scroll down for those by room, but please feel free to reach out with any questions.


Designing the living room, I wanted to create a space that felt bright since this room sits on the northern side of the house it doesn't get a ton of natural light. The living room is also the first room you see in our house since the front door opens directly into it, so I wanted it to feel polished for guests, but relaxed for our daily lives at the same time. To do this I mixed a lot of different design styles from moroccan to french. 


The dining room is the next room you walk into through the living room and one that does get a ton of natural light being on the south western side of the home. This is hands down my favorite room in the house. Bringing the relaxed yet polished look into the dining room, I mixed brass accents with warm gray walls and a relaxed white-washed wooden table (that doesn't show spills!) with french bistro chairs. The chandelier might be my favorite piece in the room bringing in some "old world" elegance to an otherwise casual space.


The bar I picked up a few years ago when I lived in New York, and it still shocks me that this piece came from IKEA! I loved this line and literally didn't touch or hack this piece at all down to the hardware. I kept the bar simple and added fresh flowers for a pop of warm color.

The screened-in porch may be the biggest change to a space in our home yet. CT tiled the floor with a beige travertine for a polished look. Most of the furniture here was a hand my down and I love the vintage and botanical look mixed with an indoor/outdoor bohemian rug.
