As I write this, the snow is coming down yet the sun is out. It’s gorgeous AND I can’t wait for Spring to arrive.

I thought I’d give you a house update!

Things are happening! We have walls. We have shiplap. We have hardwoods. And we have this tile (in the laundry/mudroom) that I’ve been coveting for months. Isn’t it sweet? It has a Swedish/Scandinavian vibe that delights me.

I’m loving the process of designing the foundation of this new house with wood/grey/white tones and textures (as well as a bit of colorful tile in other rooms) before all the colorful decorations (wallpaper, lighting, rugs, etc) begin.

I have really missed my belongings, you guys. I cannot wait to get into this house and start decorating my joy with vintage pieces and rugs and curtains and all the colorful things that I’ve missed. Especially my studio!!!

Meanwhile, my creativity is getting quenched through the house stuff as well as through wearing my joy.

Looks like we’ll be moving in next month! Almost there, almost there!

PS: The grey paint is Stonington Gray by Bengamin Moore. And the floor tile is tile is a Bedrosian tile and it’s called Enchante Moderno.

Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!

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...
