When we purchased our home, it was what you would call a 'fixer-upper.' It took us three years to complete our renovations, because we did almost everything ourselves, paid cash for it all, and lived in the home at the same time. Finally, I can say with relief that we are finished. The outside still needs landscaping and a privacy fence, but the inside is complete!
Anyhow, I thought it might be fun to show you around a bit! We'll start out with the porch and, and go from there :)
Our home was built in 1931, and is a traditional Czech craftsman-style home. I wanted a modern-yet-traditional paint scheme to show off the intricate wood work on the eves. We fell in love with this scheme from Sherwin Williams.
I did my best to create an extension of our home, outdoors ,by repurposing a rug and an old trunk to mimic an indoor living space. Hanging ferns give a feeling of lushness and privacy, and of course, there are succulents scattered about. The address placard and mailbox tie into the deco craftsman era, and are two of my favorite pieces on the porch.
Lots of love,
