Hello friends! I figured that the best way to start this blog (about home design and lifestyle) would be to start with my home base… literally. Many of you may know that Jonny and I have both been licensed Realtors in Tennessee for several years, and on March 1, 2019, we bought our first personal home. We wanted to wait until we were married to officially make this huge purchase, and had talked about waiting until our lease was up (July 2019) to do so.
Well, folks, I’m a very impatient person, and when I make up my mind to do something, I don’t like the waiting game. We started looking in the Fall of 2018, just casually… and when I say casually, I mean we went to look at twelve houses in the span of an hour and a half. We know what we like, and we know what we don’t like! Especially as Realtors, we can walk into a house and immediately check it off the list if we see deal-breakers, and we know when those deal-breakers are reasonably fixable or not. We also knew exactly what we were looking for:
And that’s what we’re all here for, right? Before photos? I don’t know about you but I love a good before and after… so stay tuned and you’ll see each room get it’s own refresh and updates. Keep in mind, these are unedited, on the day before we started painting, so don’t expect too much in the way of aesthetics… There was pink, and seafoam green, and dalmatian spots, oh my! Not to mention the previous owners had just stopped painting in certain areas. So the kitchen was mostly seafoam green, but right beside and above the fridge was tan. Nice.
We’ve done a lot in the past couple months, and I’m excited to show you. Which room would you start with? Let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading!
