Owning a home is SO dang fun! We moved in a little over a year ago and I am slowly but surely getting rooms in order. Caleb and I love our home and are always dreaming up ideas on how to make it perfect. We did the same with our old house in the 5th Ward (which we are now renting out) and are continuing to do it to our current home.
Our current home is in beautiful Bay View just blocks from the Lake, multiple parks, restaurants, and easy access to the freeway. We love our home! It was built in 1888 and is full of character (exposed brick, huge kitchen, three porches, and a giant pocket door entry to the living room) and natural light. We have lived here for a little over a year now, but are still slowly curating each room.
Our efforts to instill unencumbered comfort includes keeping our living room open with minimal distractions, airy gray walls (Behr Sculptor Clay), and no curtains on the large bay window, so as to provide the most access to natural light and views to the exterior. I really am happy with our latest purchase, the West Elm Watercolor Trellis Shag Rug, because it subtly anchors the roomâ€™s modern touches, including the bold chandelier and crisp tailored sectional.
