Home Tour:

March 19, 2013



In case you missed it, our home (where we're currently living) was featured on a beautiful mess the other week! So fun, I love Elsie & Emma's blog! I realized I've never really shared any part of my home that I've lived in for the past few years! It was a mess only a couple years ago. Nick & I were tired of living in junk and clutter so we sold everything, tore up the carpet, got hardwood floors and got a bunch of new (well, technically old) furniture and really made the place our own. So hope you enjoy our first real home tour! All photos were taken by Jennifer Young / i art u!
 

Vintage pull down map is from Lunch Lady Vintage. Blanket on the couch is from good knits. Pillows from ebay. Large rug from anthropologie. Small rug is from Novica. Shoes from Sol'N'Fraise. Most everything else is thrifted from local flea markets ;)


 
One of my all time favorite finds is this yellow scooter from the antique market. I asked the price, pretty much sure I wouldn't be able to afford it, and the lady said $90 bucks! I couldn't believe it. Nick was like, "what are we going to do with it?" but I was like, for $90, you can't really not buy something like this! She just wanted to get rid of it. He ended up thinking it was pretty cool ;)











 
Yea so I pretty much have a C&P Pilot Press that is just sitting and looking pretty.. It prints a little janky so I'm going to have a friend look at it to see if we can get it going for a possible letterpress class at the shop!


These last items are very special to me and I didn't realize I had things from both my Grandfather's. On the left is a photo of my grandfather and his siblings from my dad's side. It's pretty cool, he's in the middle on the bike, looking like the big leader. Such a long time ago! On the right are some bowls from my Grandfather's house on my mom's side. We took a family trip to China 2008 and were able to see where both my grandma & grandpa grew up, it was amazing. I don't know if my Grandfather actually used these (they may have been from a different family after he lived there) but it's still really special to have.

Hope you enjoyed our home tour! :) Well, it's more like our townhome tour. Our real house, the one we bought last year, yea, we're not living there yet. It's taken such a long time and there have been delays and everything. But we hope to be in soon.  The other day, Nick and I were listing things we're excited about. He said, "I'm excited to take a swim in our pool" and "I can't wait to sit next to the fireplace relaxing in our new living room". I said, "I'm excited to cook in our new kitchen" ;) Well, when we move in it will have all been worth the wait, we just know it. <3

29 hello's:

  1. THE OH HELLO FRIEND HOME TOUR IS FINALLY HERE AND IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!! Love.Every.Single.Detail. When can I book accommodations at Le Keith Chateau? Okay, I just want to stay the night so I can gawk at your house for hours and of course spend time with you and Nick! I love and admire your design eye so much Danni and your house is truly remarkable. Hoping to see more soon since you've shared tidbits of your restroom, fridge, & the black shelves turned white on IG. Sorry I'm a stalker with a decent memory! CONGRATS on this gallery of vintage goods that you call your home!!!!!
