002-living-room

Exciting news, guys! Our historic townhome is featured on Design * Sponge!!  We are such big fans of Design * Sponge, and even bigger fans of Grace Bonney, so this is extra special for us.  We recently purchased Grace’s new book, In the Company of Women, and have been so inspired by the stories of the female entrepreneurs, makers and artists she highlights. We’ve been sharing lots of photos of our historic townhome on Instagram, so we’re excited to share the full before...

012-master-bed-bath

 Happy Monday, everyone! You may have seen some before and after photos of our historic townhome floating around on Instagram.  We purchased the townhome earlier this year (you can see all of the “before” photos here), and spent a few months renovating and updating it. We shared our little black & white bathroom reno with you in July, and are excited to finally have some time to share details on the second bathroom we added. When we purchased the home, it had 3 bedrooms...

straight-on-3-edited

Welcome back, friends!  We’re excited to share Part 3 of our Chesterfield Cottage reveal with you.  So far, we’ve shared before & afters of the exterior, living/dining space, and bathroom in Part 1, and the attic bedroom in Part 2.  Now, it’s time for the kitchen, which might just be our favorite makeover in the home. Here’s how it all went down. {Before} {After} We kept the layout the same, but took everything out and started with a blank slate.  We added white...

Update: Our bedroom renovation was featured on Apartment Therapy!  Check it out here. Happy weekend, friends!  We’re back with part 2 of our Chesterfield reno reveal, and we’re talking all about the attic.   If you missed part 1 with photos of the exterior, living room and bathroom, you can see it here. The attic space is on the 2nd floor of the home.  It’s a nice escape from the main level where the other bedrooms, bathroom, and common areas...

Part 1 - Exterior, Living Space & Bathroom

We received a first day offer and are in contract!  Now that we have some time to breathe, we’re excited to share all of the fun details and before & after photos...

Before & After: An Updated Take on Black & White

16

Welcome back, friends. Guess what? We finally finished our #historictownhome renovation!  (If you follow us on Instagram, you probably knew that already, but stick with us ok?) One of our favorite makeovers in the house was the bathroom.  Not only was it small and awkward (it’s just 6×6!), but it was also the only one in the house. A few of its many quirks included oversized sconces that prevented the door from fully opening, a toilet that almost touched the...

DIY No-Sew Drop Cloth Bed Skirt

No Sew Drop Cloth Bedskirt

Hello again, friends. Two posts in one week!  I think this is a record for us. We finally had a chance to catch up on life after being super busy the last few months.  It’s hard to believe that we’ve renovated 4 bathrooms and a house this year!  We finished our Pearl St. bathroom renovation in February, then bought a historic townhome in German Village that we renovated and furnished, and just finished remodeling a client’s dated bathroom last week, too.  Even though...

New Property Tour: The Historic Townhome

GV7

Well friends, we have a new property!  We weren’t actively looking, but when this one came up a few months ago in the fantastic location that it is, we had to jump on it. We have shared a few sneak peaks on Instagram using the hashtag #historictownhome, and are excited to give you the full tour on the blog. The property is a 3 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom (soon to be 2.5!) end-unit townhome that we’re hoping to renovate, furnish, and share...

Happy Anniversary to Us!

IMG_1353

Four years ago (has it really been four years?!), Bryan and I got married in the little historic city of Ponce, Puerto Rico. We had only visited the island once before with a very special friend, and fell in love with the Plaza, the old cathedral dating back to 1670, and the historic mansion, Castillo Serralles, overlooking it all. Neither of us had any ties to Puerto Rico, but after that visit, we were hooked and knew it would be the...
