Our home started out as a sweet little bungalow, which we lived in for 5 years, fixing it up and DIY’ing as we went.
It was kind of like my testing ground for figuring out my style, getting into DIYs, and seeing what I liked and didn’t like. You can see what the bungalow looked like and all the projects we tackled along the way (full disclosure: some are a bit cringe-worthy and give me a “what was I thinking?!” moment- ha).
Then in July of 2014, we started on our dream….
We ripped the roof off that bungalow of ours and started building up, turning that wee house into our forever family home. We added an attached garage, second floor with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, opened up the main floor, and added a third story loft space.
Although we moved back in to the house in January 2015, we are still chipping away at the rooms bit by bit and finishing them all ourselves.
Come on in!!
Ready to have a peak around?
Dining & Living Room:
Our open-concept dining and living room is all about neutrals and a clean aesthetic.
The kitchen features two-tone gray and white IKEA cabinetry, with marble-lookalike quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, gold hardware, and layered lighting. We kept this room majorly on budget, but it didn’t cramp the style!
We layered on neutrals for a calm, serene bedroom retreat.
Kids / Guest Bathroom:
We designed everything around the herringbone tiled floors in this room (our splurge!). Everything is a big box store purchase or DIY project. Simple but pretty, and perfect for the kids chaos that happens in here everyday.
This room is all about colour, sweetness, and fun. I am so happy to have had the chance to do a mint + pink room. Don’t tell my daughter, but it’s kinda my own dream room ;)
This room began with the painted mountain mural and evolved from there. A little scandinavian style, mixed with fun DIYs and a teeny bit of kelly green. Perfect for our growing boy!
That’s it for now…
But don’t worry – we have so many more spaces to come!
A loft studio, a family room, an office, back deck, master bathroom, and more. Stay tuned!
