Home Tour

Welcome to our home!
Built in 1952, our house is a fixer.
Our vision is to return the house to way it might have looked, inside and out, when it was built.
We've been here for 2 and half years and have done a lot, and there is always more to be done.

We're big fans of mid century modern design, but our house won't look like a spread from Design Within Reach.
(because, frankly, we do not have $200 to spend on a folding chair. seriously.  we prefer the $3 vintage sort from the thrift store)
And hopefully our home doesn't have this vibe either. 
(go check out the link--hilarious)
Our home reflects who we are.
So next to our Eames rocker, you might see a table we bought at a garage sale.
We're not purists.
We just like good design, beautiful colors and filling our home with the things that make us happy and tell our story.

Please take a look around and see what we've done with the place so far.

The Art on our Walls

The Kitchen Remodel

The Vintage, Metal Kitchen Cabinets

The Baby's Corner

There's still more to show you.
Our bedroom, the school room, Aaron's studio, the outside, laundry room.....
And we'll get there.
Slowly but surely.
Thanks for coming to visit!
Check back to see what's new.
Love from,

Hi Greta,
I've been following your blog for awhile but never commented :) Just wanted to say, keep up the good work and I loooove your home! I have a 1940 cottage with lots of original details, and I adore mid-century design as well, so your blog has served as lots of inspiration in my decorating! In particular, I've made the decision to go with linoleum when we tackle our kitchen (eventually!) I adore your kitchen!
Thanks for all you do!!
