Home & DIY Projects


Here are a few pictures of our slowly-coming-together home!

The office/writing room (I keep calling it My Writing Room and Adam keeps calling it His Office? Clearly we are going to have a Sharks vs. Jets style musical turf war. I’ll tape it for you ) (and for the observant, why yes! Yes that IS a potty you see on the floor. Sometimes this mama’s work time coincides with a certain toddlers potty-party time, so there it is. Behold! Just keepin’ it real for ya 😉 )

Then we have our room in all it’s lilac walled floor-bed glory. THEN our cupboards which wouldn’t typically warrant an internet display but for the fact that they have a built in platter stand! George and Betty thought of everything!

Then we have our bare bones living room and entrance, with pictures hung on leftover hooks for no other purpose than to get them off the floor.

It’s coming together!

    will you store a lot of books in there? it feels pretty lovely to call a room in your house “the library”! our house doesn’t even have a dining room. but we still have a “library”! plus it’s a pretty fair compromise. 😉

      Ooh The Library! I think if we have a library we have to have an Atrium and a Foyer too. I like it.

    I think I’m in love with your sofa – ummmm lush colour teal hummmm 🙂 we’re currently looking for somewhere to live too, we’re thinking of buying land and yurts to live in – all very exciting, but not sure what I’ll do with my art in yurt?

      We found it secondhand, but its the Cedric sofa from Urban Barn. I WISH it came in teal! I’m slightly obsessed with tufting.
      And as for your living arrangements, a wholehearted vote for yurts all the way!

    Your sofa is rad.

      I feel like I need to quote you somewhere, so that my little sisters (who call me a crone) can see that someone called something in my life orbit “rad”. You made this crone’s day 😉
