This room is a combination of French style and teenage sass. The bed is covered in linen toile bedding that I made (but you knew that already, didn’t you?) I guess I should have shown you what the room looked like when I first walked in here. I sometimes think I should put a […]
Today I wanted to show you some of the details we selected for the exterior of our home. We used a gray brick for the front steps that coordinates with the gray stone used on the columns. I’m really happy we went with the brick steps. Although it was a significant expense, I think […]
