Homey Home

Homes are meant to feel homey...
These are pics of our favorite apartment where we lived a few years ago.  We lived here for two years and it felt like a palace- we felt so lucky to have  a two bedroom place of our own.  I miss that place sometimes.  It is interesting to see how my design tastes have changed a lot in the last few years.

Now we own a little yellow house from the 60's that still needs quite a bit of work.  But I love it.  It has been so fun making it our own home.  Some days I would love to go back to that apartment and run away from all our looming home projects.  But renovations do give me something to dream about...okay maybe obsess about.  I have lots of pics of our renovation and decorating ideas of/ for our yellow house. Some have happened and some are still in the works.  Stay Tuned for more... Yay for Homey Homes!

  1. For the first few years of living at our 60s fixer upper I felt this same way. I missed our apartment and how little it was and light and airy and how I had decorated way back when. It's weird to be home owners and to miss your rented place.

    I still think of that apartment and love it, when I lived there I felt like I was playing house, now I'm more of a grown up and so it all feels more real. On the one hand it's wonderful, on the other quite nostalgic.
