A Few Things

With the dust settling around our actual casa (sort of), we figured it would be a great time to clean up shop around our virtual home, too. So the first thing on our list of said “few things,” is that our terribly outdated house tour is current again. Not only have new photos been added, but I was feeling a little, uh, crazy, and I completely nixed the old format. Deleted it. It felt good. (I know. Is that weird?) Now you’ll find a simple gallery and a direct link to an older gallery, courtesy of our Apartment Therapy tour, circa 2010. Looking back over the course of a year, I hadn’t realized our home had changed so much – including the death of a pumpkin bedroom, and most recently, saying buh-bye to green.


And since I was enjoying the whole cleaning process (cleaning, yeah!), I added another page, too. The number two thing on the list of “things” is our By-the-Room Project Gallery. Under the Projects tab on our menu bar, you’ll be taken to a gallery – get this, by the room – of projects done in those rooms. While the list of links includes the things we’ve taken on here, we’d love for you to share your own creations as well! Comment links are certainly welcomed and absolutely encouraged on the gallery page.

Okay, and lastly, we’d like to ask you – nicely, with batting eyelashes – if you’d (pretty) please vote for us in the 2011 Small Cool contest, hosted by Apartment Therapy. We’re certainly small. Cool is debatable. You can show some love right here, or just click on the image below. The initial round of voting continues through noon on May 1st, but you can only mark us as a favorite once. By the way, you’re totally awesome. Just gonna throw that out there.


Let’s see, what else? Nope, that was it. xo.

  • I voted for you, too! Love your small (AND cool!) home! The new tour page is great. Doesn’t cleaning feel good? Well, some cleaning. I usually feel gross after cleaning a bathroom. Is that just me? I’m writing up a purging post for today. It feels good!ReplyCancel

  • Ashley @ DesignBuildLove.co4.18.11 - 11:12 AM

  • Susan @ Jubilee Furniture4.18.11 - 12:27 PM

    Just voted – think it brought your count to 405! Yay!

    Don’t love to clean – but love clean things – which mean SOMEONE (usually me) needs to clean so we have clean things. Does that make sense? What I’m trying to say is I love your cleaned up site and OF COURSE I love your amazing – and clean – home!ReplyCancel
