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.
Just found your blog….just want to say I love that wallpaper….and the fact you have color in your home! I have grown weary of the neutral palate all the home blogs have. I yearn for color!!!
Totally agree. COLOR is making a comeback!
