Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: Our home is a 1940s bungalow that we bought in June 2018. We renovated (or painted) every room with the main focuses being on the kitchen and master bathroom.

My style is definitely eclectic and I love the lines in mid-century furniture, which you’ll see a lot of throughout our home. I’m an interior design fan and I love making a house a home that reflects the personalities of those who live there.

I feel like our little bungalow does just that. It’s the perfect blend between my and my husband’s styles. I love the natural light we get and the character that has remained over the years.

Master bedroom

What is your favorite room and why? Although I’m in the process of trying to refresh it, I would have to say our master bedroom because it has the best natural light and is my personal oasis.

Guest room

What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? I try to be thrifty when it comes to home decor, but I’m a sucker for a good rug. The rug in our guest bedroom was one of my last purchases and I love how moody it is and brings out the green in the wall color.

Any advice for creating a home you love? Be true to yourself. It’s easy to fall into the comparison game with so many beautiful homes out there, but your home should be a reflection of you and the ones you share it with.
