Merry Christmas Friends! The countdown is on & what I haven't mentioned is that right now we’ve got a big renovation project on our hands. It’s a complete demo at the moment & with COVID, everything is taking longer than expected. Thankfully we are still living in our current home & can enjoy Christmas without worrying about packing up & trying to move!
Here’s a little preview of the home we're working on. I have always loved the charm of historic homes & although this 1980’s Tudor style home is far from historic, it still has potential to have that charm that I love.
Some days I come over to the new house just to watch the sunset. This photo was taken in the Fall when the forest fires made the sky smoky & the sun glowing red.
We know that we'll be painting & staining the entire house, removing the dark brown slats, replacing the front door, garage doors & replacing the windows. It's a lot of work and it'll be a process. Right now we’re tackling the interior, and then come summer we’ll take on the exterior. I've been swooning over these photos below that I found on Pinterest.
Above: What I love: The creamy white brick, sage wooden shutters & The solid wood doors.
Above: What I love: The beautiful details in this window & the dark gray trim.

Next time I post, I'll take you inside & show you some "before" photos & share with you some of the things I've been learning about choosing kitchen cabinets. It's not an easy choice, especially when it's for your own home.
See you next time!
