Living Room Before and After

We have officially been in this house for one year as of tomorrow. That is so hard for us to believe but when we look back over the past year we can’t believe all we have accomplished in that time (and all the things we still want to do). This home has creatively been so fun! It has allowed us to go a totally different direction with our style and to create a fun space for our family. This home …
