What a journey this has been. From the seed of a crazy idea to leave our home of 20 years (Portland, OR) for a tiny town and a simpler life to NOW. A full year of dreaming, planning, packing, storing, living in two temporary digs, selling tons of our belongings, building a house, to THIS MOMENT.

We made it. We are moved in. We are exhausted. We are deliriously happy. We are HOME.

 

 

Can we please talk about this wallpaper!!?? I’ve been coveting it (and the chandelier) for years and it’s a dream to have them both in our new dining room! What do you think? I’m on a biiiig wallpaper kick and can’t wait to do more.

This wallpaper is designed by the amazing Nathalie Lete who is a huge source of inspiration for me. I bought the paper and the chandelier last Nov during the seasonal big sales at Anthropologie. Totally worth the wait as I cannot love it more!

 

 

I’ve been in major unpacking mode, pacing myself, and decorating my joy! It feels amazing to be reunited with our things that we absolutely love while putting the rest of what we can live without in the garage for another giant sale. It feels really good to downsize and let things go. Hello, simpler life. 

I’ll share more peeks of our home soon. Stay tuned!

PS: You can read more about our home build here and our move to small town Sisters, Oregon here.

Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!

Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker. I followed my whispers and started playing with paint and everything changed.

Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore and nourish their creative souls.

Celebrating 20 years of marriage

It was the summer of 1998 in Florida. I was 24 years old, had just graduated with my MSW,  and I was dating someone - nothing too serious.  One evening, John, (who I had heard and known about since we were 14, but never met), came to my boyfriend's house with his...
