Hi there, I’m Brit. I like to update our house and post all about it here and on Instagram. Happiness is where design and DIY meet in our home. Throw in happy hour on the deck, and my day is made.
Right now we’re on House #2 and taking our Seattle house from “old lady” to awesome. Or awesomer. Before we moved in, two sisters lived in this house for over 50 years. They liked things like pink carpet, crocheted kitty cat curtains, and faux wood parquet linoleum floor. We like things like hardwood floors, marble, bare windows, white kitchens, black accents, and window seats.
We’ve done the house update thing once before, when we rescued our first house from the 80s – think turquoise counters, purple trim, and bleached wood cabinets. Well, House Update #1 went too fast (all that youthful energy and no kids) so we are onto House Update #2, which is much slower considering the parent-thing and full-time-job-thing we have going on. Slow, but still fun.
We’re renovating every inch of our home and while we’ve been at it for a few years, there are plenty of projects on the horizon. Hopefully you’ll follow along to see all the fun in getting our house updated. But fair warning, the work happens after my day job is done and the kiddos are in bed, so I’ll be keeping it real with nighttime pics with a glass of wine in the background.
