10 years


Almost 10 years ago, after we remodeled our old 1920's home, we were featured in Phoenix Home and Garden (June 2001 issue, all photos by Christiaan Blok).  I came across the magazine the other day while cleaning out some boxes and couldn't believe how much has changed in our home in those 10 short years.  I thought it would be fun to do a little comparing...

We still have plenty of grapefruit...




The biggest difference is probably in what 10 years ago was a 5 year old's bedroom and bathroom, to what has become home to a teenager.  I didn't style it or clean it for a photo, it just is what it is.  We are actually in the works of painting and redoing her room a bit, so stay tuned for a possible bedroom makeover in the near future...

 



Now I just need to dig up some old pictures of the house from before we remodeled it...

Both the before and after is amazing. I do love that it's all been warmed up just a bit. It looks more lived in and cozy now. You have such a beautiful home.

got a big chuckle out of the "teenage" room! Have a couple of them myself. You have great style.

I remember that issue! My girlfriend Ashley used to work for you & she was so excited about the feature! Your home looks amazing!

Hi Bev,

Thanks for sharing this, I really enjoyed seeing what has changed in that 10 year period.

I will jump on the bandwagon too and agree with everyone above that you have a really beautiful home.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Take care

I agree with everyone on the before AND after being equally as beautiful. I love your added touches of rustic/industrial and of course your kitchen redo is incredible.

The thing I love most is "the more things change the more things stay the same". Your house looks different but still distinctively you and that is truly what a beautiful home is...something that reflects the owner and the owner's personal style...and you have accomplished that with grace.
