Our little house in the suburbs

We recently finished a few home repairs (new windows, wall paint, kitchen backsplash) and I’ve been collecting a few new furniture pieces here and there over the past year. I feel like this place is finally leaning toward “purposeful decorating” instead of accidental “here’s whatever was cheapest at the time.” Thanks to this year’s tax return we funded the last of it and I’m so happy with how our home feels now!

Looking up the stairs from the foyer (our townhouse only has a foyer and garage on the first floor, the rest of the living space is all second floor)

Straight around from the stairs is Snake and Gecko and the entrance to our 3 year old’s room

The top of her awesome curb-find dresser. It needed a little refinishing but it was SO worth it.

Back to the top of the stairs and you get to our bathroom off the hall

Back to the hall and past the bathroom is our Family Bedroom starring Mega Bed ™

IMG_5427
That’d be a queen and a twin all together, packing our small bedroom full, but making night times so much easier. I sewed the quilt-style duvet cover on the queen and the quilt on the foot of the twin.
