The last time we did a video tour of this home was last September when we moved in. I wish I knew how to do a split-screen because, wow. We love taking videos every so often so we can look back and watch our progress. You can see the first video here.
Chris took the girls for an hour after work so I took that opportunity to film another video for you (and us). Although you’ve seen all of these spaces before, seeing everything in video form, all at once, will hopefully clear up some configurations and layouts we’ve gotten questions about.
We’ve done a lot in 10 months, but we have many large projects still to come: the kitchen, the laundry area, adding a fireplace in the great room, renovating our bedroom and Greta’s, adding more windows, addressing the large media room downstairs–we can’t wait to look back on this video one day and be wowed with progress.
Thanks so much for replying, Julia! Good to hear about your experience.
Is Greta ever afraid sleeping so far from you?
We don’t have children but are wondering if we should eliminate homes where the master is on a different level than the other bedrooms, thinking that they wouldn’t want to be all the way upstairs while we’re downstairs, for example.
Thanks for doing this! It seems like a really livable layout. Can’t wait to see the upcoming changes.
Also, thanks for letting us see your junk room. It makes me feel better about the disarray in my own house while remodeling. ;)
Charly!!! She’s awesome.
The basement!!!!!!! THE BASEMENT! What a dream space.
Greta is a girl after my own heart – my favorite colors too!
I definitely giggled to myself when I saw the fab on in your bedroom!!! Hehe!
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
