It’s FINALLY here! The home tour you’ve all been waiting for! And in case you’re new around here, we recently completed a 5 month long gut renovation of our 1940’s craftsman home - you can read more about that here.
We moved back in last December, but it’s been a whirlwind ever since! Unpacking, celebrating Christmas, finding out I was pregnant and trying to get the house styled (that part is still really far off) hasn’t left much time for me to share anything with you. I also was hoping to be way further along in decorating the house before I showed you, but if I’ve learned anything over the years, it’s that patience is a virtue when it comes to interior styling - lots of research and feeling out your space is important!
For this post, I want to give you an overall feel of the home. The finishes really speak for themselves at this point since I haven’t done much styling yet, but I am excited to share that entire process with you as it evolves as well! Following this post, I will highlight each room - talk about the finishes I chose, the decisions we made during the renovation, etc. I have had a lot you ask me about the process of finding a contractor, sourcing materials, etc. so I will do my best to answer those questions in future posts.
So here you have it! Our modern coastal farmhouse! Why I decided to name it this? Well, it’s definitely a more modern take on a farmhouse which is very popular right now (Thanks to Chip & Joanna of HGTV’s Fixer Upper), but I’ve also always had a coastal vibe in the way I style, so this reflects that as well. We live near the beach and water has always been something Wes and I have been drawn to so we wanted to showcase that in parts of our home as well.
