House Tour: Master Bedroom

If you feel like you’ve already seen our master bedroom, you’re right. But you see, I realized when I was writing about all the Urban Outfitters stuff in our house that even though I wrote a lot of posts about our master bedroom (8 in total!), I never gave a proper piece-by-piece room tour with… Continue reading House Tour: Master Bedroom

The Hunt for Master Bedroom Bedding

Last week, when I told you about the room that inspired our master bedroom palette, I touched upon the decadent, sumptuous, to-die-for bedding from Olatz Schnabel that graced her bed in our inspiration picture. I would have loved a full set of her bedding but I don’t have a spare $4000 sitting around so it’s… Continue reading The Hunt for Master Bedroom Bedding

DIY: Lengthening our Master Bedroom Curtains

I suppose putting DIY in the title of this post is a little misleading. It should be more like “figure-out-how-to-do-it-and-then-hire-someone-else-to-do-it-because-you-can’t-sew”. That’s a little more honest. But if you can sew then you can absolutely do this yourself. Anyway… I have a love/hate relationship with curtains. I mean, I get it – I know that they… Continue reading DIY: Lengthening our Master Bedroom Curtains

For me, that feeling hit when I saw this image… Continue reading Master bedroom Inspiration: Olatz Schnabel

What’s Wrong with My Bedroom

There are quite a few things that I like about my redecorated master bedroom but like most things in this house, it’s still a work in progress. Let’s look at how far we’ve come before we see how much farther we need to go. Not bad but not quite there yet.  You see, I’ve conveniently… Continue reading What’s Wrong with My Bedroom

Half Bath “Before” Shots and Design Plans

If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I’ve finally broken ground on my half bath renovation by yanking a couple loose tiles off the wall. By the way, I also ripped down the wallpaper. Yup. I’m crazy like that. Unfortunately, that’s where the reno stopped. You see that thick cement that was behind the… Continue reading Half Bath “Before” Shots and Design Plans

A Remarkable Renovation: 43 Church Street in Westborough

Last summer when we were visiting my parents in Westborough, Massachusetts–the town I grew up in (remember I told you about it here and here?)–I drove past this stunning house on Church Street and it stopped me in my tracks. I just couldn’t believe that I had never noticed it before. Well, that’s because it… Continue reading A Remarkable Renovation: 43 Church Street in Westborough
