It’s always so much fun to do a house tour video for you to see things you may not catch when looking at photos. It feels like hosting a bunch of friends over to see what you’ve done to the place — without the clean-up afterwards….only lots and lots beforehand. As much as this house tour is for you and your enjoyment, it’s such a benchmark in progress for us, as well. Every time I mark the year with a house tour, I love seeing how our home is even more a reflection of us than it was before. I love to see how the ______ (insert room name) changed in just a year (or 6 months).

We tried a format for this house tour that’s slightly different than the past ones. It’s a combination of me giving you all a personal tour of rooms in the home, where I show how things are connected, talk about what I l love, what we want to do, what my secret talents are (you’ll have to see that one in the playroom), what my favorite room is in the whole house–and it’s mixed with smooth video shots of the rooms and details. So hopefully it hits all the marks of explanation + entertainment!

Grab some popcorn and watch it below or on the big screen from our newly relaunched YouTube channel!

looking for inspiration? 

I recently got an email from someone that asked, “Where do you go for new design inspiration?” She went on to say, “I use Houzz and lots of popular sites, but I feel like I’m stuck in an algorithm and keep seeing the same things.” I know the feeling — it’s so easy to get […]
