We built our first house about a mile from historic downtown Athens, Georgia, and it still holds a special place in my heart. James and I made a lot of great memories there and even more with friends and family. It's a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath cottage style house, and we had a blast putting our own mark on it during our four years as the original owners! I guess you can describe my style as neutral with a little quirkiness mixed in -- and it's evolved a lot over the last several years. Through my twenties I experimented with color and pattern, but only recently have I decided I feel most comfortable with a "modern farmhouse / French / vintage decor" vibe. I like a collected, unique look -- I thrift regularly and enjoy mixing my vintage finds with newer pieces.
We're currently renting our cottage and building a family home in a similar style in nearby Watkinsville. More to come soon! In the meantime, you can read through the archives of our old house by room:
