Our Bedroom

i found our bed frame several years ago, and i have to say it’s my favorite piece of all time. my natural inclination toward architecture and interiors is minimal, clean, simple but fun. this bed is anything but minimal, clean and simple. it IS fun, however.

Our Powder Bath

during our kitchen remodel, we had to move the bathroom to another wall, allowing for opening up the kitchen area to the sunroom. and by putting in a pocket door to the powder bath, it saved on space and awkwardness due to it’s very petite dimensions.

Our Sunroom/Library

our kitchen remodel included making it more accessible to the sunroom. now the sunroom is brighter and feels a part of the kitchen, instead of isolated.

Our 1930s Kitchen Remodel – Before

our 1935 Monterey Revival home still had it’s original kitchen. along its 80 years, new refrigerator and dishwasher were squeezed into the tiny space. it was hard to shoot images, but here are some from before our remodel. the laundry room and sunroom were separate rooms with three walls that eventually were removed. the previous post on June 30th will show the remodeled kitchen.

Our Kitchen

this is our kitchen remodel! you can see the before pictures on the next post, dated July 5th. it took four months. three walls were removed, lots of upstairs plumbing relocated, oak flooring laid throughout kitchen to tie in with rest of home. it was actually fascinating and fun to live through it, but am happy it’s done. a moroccan/indian theme runs throughout downstairs.
