Oh Hi, Cottage!

Ojai Living Room | The Polished Pebble | Cottage Style

It’s hard to believe it’s already been almost 4 years since I first blogged about Kelley’s Ojai cottage. At the time and her husband had just purchased the place, and they were just starting to fix it up. Here’s a look back at the “before” photo of the exterior… …and here’s how it looks today. […]

23 Bungalow Court – House Tour

Bungalow House

The alley behind our house backs up to a cute little area called Bungalow Court. Just through that arbor, there are six adorable bungalows…three on the left, facing three on the right. I’ve always wanted to see the inside of the last one on the right, so I was pumped when I saw an “Open House” sign by […]

Portis Family Kitchen

Kitchen Island | Refrigerator | Phillip Sides | Portis Home | Range Hood

He’s home! Kevin had more music business in Michigan last week, and man did I miss him. We don’t spend much time apart, so I felt sort of like I was holding my breath the whole time he was gone. He rolled in at 11 o’clock on Thursday night after driving 14 straight hours (alone) to get home […]

Hi and happy Monday! I had several folks ask if I would post some pictures of the house I blogged about last week when Ashley finished renovating it (and before she sold it), so I thought I’d post those today. But first, here’s a look back at the kitchen when she bought the house: …and […]

Hi and happy Friday! We’re heading upstairs at the house on Felder Avenue today! When you get to the top of those steps, you’ll find three bedrooms, 2 large bathrooms, and a cozy den.

Southern Style House Tour (Part 2)

Old Southern House | Restoration | Craftsman | White and Dark Wood | Cowhide | Neutral

Hi! Ready to keep walking through this old house? Before we wander down that hallway, I did want to mention that my friend Ashley is responsible for renovating this house, but it actually looked a lot different when she lived here. The current homeowner prefers a lighter feel, so she personalized it with a lot of white […]

I had the pleasure of spending a little time inside this brick beauty yesterday… It belongs to a fun new friend, and it was such a treat to meet her and her house! I couldn’t resist taking some photos while I was there. I had my camera in the car, but no tripod, so I […]
