You probably have seen a million pics of the house blasted all over my instgram, so I thought it's time to give it a property write up.
This project actually started about four months ago when I sold this house to some investors. They gave the home some modern upgrades, and it ended up bonkers amazing. This ain't no boring flip ya'll!
This view is the formal living/dinging area. My goal was to make this cozy but not too formal. This is the room you can eat dinner every night but also be a little fancier and have a cocktail on those scoop chairs
The dining set was a clutch find. I don't usually buy them because taking pictures and storing them is a bitch.
The dresser was also kismet. I was picking up the lucite table from a guy from I buy stuff from occasionally and he said "hey do you need an dressers" UM YES. So thank you sir. I styled it out with vintage and accessories from Target, West Elm, and Home goods.
Those scoop chairs. Yes yes yes!
Still can't get over the colors in that painting. I got that at a thrift store the day before the shoot. I saw it and said yeah that will do. When I got in the space the colors just popped. Don't ever judge art by thrift store lighting is the moral of this story.
There is not really a star in here. Everything is a statement piece. The schreiber dresser is so cool I can't even stand it. It's too cool for me. The art i've hoarded for three years and honestly kinda forgot about it. I dug it out to sell it but when I saw it again I knew it was too good to give up just yet. The spider leg table is so huge, I love how it's oval, most of them are just round. The sofa is from West Elm and was up until very recently my own sofa. The wicker chairs add just the right amount of softness to the room. We finished it out with some MM Vintage handmade pillows, vintage accessories, and stuff from Target, West Elm, and Home Goods
The sofa table was a lucky cragslist find! Shout out to you if you are reading this ;)
I kept it simple in the office. I had this MCM desk forever. For real, forever. Someone buy it. So cheap and good. I added some of my brother's art and some other fun accessories from target and some stuff borrowed from Paige Morse.
Let's take it to the bedroom shall we???
Now the bedroom was honestly kinda thrown together. I don't have extra mattresses laying around so we stacked up to air mattresses. I tied some yarn on a wooden rod and BOOM headboard. I used a wicker side table as a mattress and then added some white bedding, indigo, and MM Vintage handmade pillow. DONE AND DONE. It's pretty simple. and I like it that way
And there you have it! This project was amazing. It was super intimidating to put together a house from nothing in a week. But you know what, we did it! My goal was to make it pretty, but still livable. I wanted people to be able to see themselves in teh space while also making it pretty for a picture. I think the goal was accomplished and i'm ready for the next challenge!
