I’ve had people ask me over and over again to post pictures of the precious little house that I am blessed to live in. It’s taken awhile for me to get around to even taking pictures… partly because decorating and “settling” takes awhile, but mostly because the whole house is rarely all clean at the same time. But I got “Spring Cleaning Fever” last Saturday, and the whole house looked so sparkly and fresh and sweet that I just had to photograph it. So here you are, friends. Enjoy a little tour of our lovely little home.
This house is clear evidence to me that God is kind, and that He cares about every intimate detail of my life. I couldn’t ask for a better roommate, better landlords, a better home layout, better rent, or a better location. It’s ten times better than I’d dared to hope for when I started looking for a place to live in DC. And God literally dropped it in my lap at the perfect time, in the perfect way, and absolutely apart from anything that I did. His mercy and His gracious provision are cause for daily thanksgiving, and this house is the icing on top of a very rich cake.
A good bookshelf was my chief concern when we first moved in. We had no couch, I had no dresser or bed, but I could deal with that… as long as we had a good bookshelf. This one is perfect. (thank you, Craigslist!)
Lindsey’s dad made this shelf. Can’t get over how awesome it is.
Our “correspondence shelf.” (Laura, this is for you.)
My “currently reading” stack. Except I’m actually reading three other books in addition to these. Bookworm much? Yes.
Just a little picture of how much Lindsey and I are alike… both of those books in the picture on the right are Morning and Evening, by Charles Spurgeon… her copy on bottom, mine on top.
Dear Laura, you have left quite a mark on my life. Obviously.
And we both love odd collections of white china/serveware.
Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m an avid Sandra McCracken fan. This art piece on the left? That’s Lindsey’s. Again, it’s unreal how much our styles mesh.
Our landlords found this in their basement and decided we should have it. I’m SO grateful.
Our backyard is quite dreary right now (Spring is still pushing it’s way up through the ground), but come Summer, this place will be lush and lovely in all ways. My brother did the landscaping back here, by the way (raised beds, benches, flowers and bushes that you can’t see yet, etc.). He’s rather amazing.
Yes, that is an old door as a headboard. Her dad is amazing.
Inspired by Pinterest, executed by me.
Yes, that is a second ampersand pillow. My clients know me well.
Road map from Scotland, river stones from New Zealand, antique lens case, favorite perfumes, and favorite quote.
Okay, so my office is the same as my bedroom, but it takes up just one part of it, so I tend to consider them two different spaces.
Awesome calendar, and awesome organized space.
AWESOME workflow board, done with help from Korie Lynn.
I love my desk so very much. It took about six months to find a good desk for this space, but it was worth the wait. This is just SO perfect.
I love typography. Can you tell? And no… none of it stands for anything.
