Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: This house is truly special to us, as it is our first home. It wasn’t in perfect shape when we bought it and it has come a long way since then. We have transformed almost every corner of this house in some way or the other. It required a lot of time, effort, planning, patience, and struggle. But when we look at it now, we thank ourselves for taking the leap.
Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: A mix of eclectic, bohemian, and farmhouse styles.
What is your favorite room and why? Living room because of all the color, patterns, and texture. It is our happy place.
What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? Plants and planters.
Any advice for creating a home you love? Do not be afraid to use color. The exterior of a home is as important as its interior, as it reflects your style and sets the tone of your home.
