Yes, it’s true! We’re excited to share the news that we are moving! We are under contract on a home about 30 minutes from where we currently live and are closing on it later this month. Of course we’ll share all the details after we close, but we won’t be moving until we sell our current home.
We are officially listing our home for sale on May 13th (a week from today!), but I wanted to share the news now for a few reasons. First–in case you or anyone you may know is interested (the home is in southeast Idaho–Rexburg, specifically, more info at the bottom of the post) and Second–we are going to be doing a lot of listing preparations this week and thought it’d be fun to take you a long for the ride! Even though our home is complete, we somehow came up with a 5 page list of things we’d like to do before listing it, everything from converting the home office back to being the fifth bedroom to patching and caulking baseboards to making sure the home is ready to show! We figured, we shared how we got to this point, every step of the way, and now it’s time to show you how we’re preparing the home to pass on to another family to love it as much as we have.
Feel free to ask any questions you have in the comments below and make sure to follow along on Instagram (@chrislovesjulia) this week because that’s where we’ll be sharing a lot of behind the scenes!
A few notes on our home!
It’s a 5 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home on a quiet street with mature trees. It has new…everything. Roof! Furnace! Water Heater! Water Filtration & Softener! AC! Appliances! We will be listing it on May 13th for $429K (furnishings are negotiable but would be on top of that price). If you or anyone you know would be interested in making an offer before then, you can contact our realtor, Caleb Fullmer- Edge Real Estate, at email@example.com.
If you’d like to see more, we filmed a house tour video last fall here. Although we’re absolutely taking one final video before moving!
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
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.

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
