It’s hard to believe it’s been an entire year since we moved into this house. There have been so many ups and downs throughout the year but with every space we make our own, it feels more like home and we fall more in love. There are more roots established and ideas dreamt about. We love talking about the future in this house.
Every year we do a video tour to document the changes. You can see all of the untouched, unfinished and in progress spaces in this video and even some things we haven’t shared on the blog yet! With these annual videos, it’s not about getting a bunch done before we shoot them, it’s about celebrating how far we’ve come in that year.
And for reference, here’s the first video tour of this house taken last year on June 5th. (We moved in June 4th!) We tried to follow the same path so you can even watch them side by side if you want!
There have been so many massive changes in year 1. All of the structural changes and the beginning of the exterior makeover (that’s been a curveball!). I feel like year 2 will be a lot of really fun changes and hopefully less heaviness. I want to diving into designing more spaces and breaking out paint brushes and hanging more wallpaper. I’m excited to put more of our personality into this house now that the layout feels more conducive to our family and lifestyle. I want to hang art and window treatments and new lights! I’m excited to add some bold colors and layer in more furniture (yes, some rooms are still empty!). Year 2 feels even more exciting than year 1 to me and although I look at our house tour this year and think, “wow! we’ve come so far!” I know one day we’ll look back in disbelief. (It’s kind of my favorite part of my job.) Haha.
Thank you for being here and for cheering us on through all of the ups and downs of renovation. You make it so fun for us, every day.
