Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: We purchased our ’90s-era cabin in May 2018. We thought it was a cool structure with unique features and design that just needed a little love (it was stuck in 1990). We didn’t have a huge renovation budget (and exhausted most of it on the flooring), so we had to be thrifty and economical and crafty with the remaining updates, which has been fun, actually. The home is in a super cute mountain community near Mt. Baker Ski resort, just north of Seattle. We love to be outdoors hiking, biking, and skiing, and now have a sweet little mountain getaway house (that we also now share on Airbnb when we’re not there).
What is your favorite room and why? My favorite room is the great room. It went from dark and drab to bright and light. It has great windows, architectural elements, and high ceilings. Also love the vintage and new pieces of art, furniture, and other accents I’ve collected and placed in that room.

What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? I found a cool vintage Turkish rug on Etsy for $80. It was cheap because it had a few flaws. But that was kind of what I liked about it. The flaws gave it character and seemed fitting for a cabin. Also the colors were amazing.
Any advice for creating a home you love? Do what you love and don’t worry about what the “rules” of design might be. Look at lots of photos for inspiration, collect them, and take away pieces of design from each. Mix and match and have FUN with it.
