    Choosing our flooring

    You may remember (and think we’re crazy) that there was brand new laminate flooring in our house when we purchased it…..and we ripped it ALL OUT. But my take on it is, why settle with something that’s not going to make you happy? Especially when you care about your home as much as we do. It was the easiest choice to make, for me, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Now, choosing our new flooring…that was a whole different situation. But before we talk about that, let’s take a look at what the flooring was like when we moved in. Oh gosh, AND that horrible popcorn ceiling.…

    We’re IN! A final walk through of the house

    Well, we’re IN the house!! Such fantastic news! We moved in two weeks ago and have been slowly making it our own, which is hard to do when you literally need to purchase everything. Coming from a 600 sqft apartment to a 1500 sqft house is a giant leap so we are trying to spend wisely (aka not drain our bank accounts to fill the house) and it’s coming along! Since we haven’t been great at sharing on the blog lately I knew an updated tour was needed so here it is! Days before we moved in, finished baseboards, got a new front door and touched up all that needed…

    Beam-ing with excitement!

    Do you like what I did there?! We’re talking about beams on the blog today and dang, it’s going to look so good once the ceiling is done. This week has been a little slower in the demo department. Adam finished ripping out everything out of the bathroom. Adios pink/peach/whatever color you are tub and sink, and we’ve been trying to decide on tile for the floors. We love a simple hexagon (of course in white) but recently, aka last night, we thought, maybe we could be a tad bit more fun? We’ll see what happens there. I painted almost identical paint swatches on the wall to try and pick…

    Demo Day (ahem, weeks) – Week Two in the Bravwel Home

    Week Two!! SO much has happened since we got the keys to our house. We ripped out all of the flooring, even though most people think we are absolutely batty for doing so. It was really dark laminate with carpet in the bedrooms and none of it was our style so we decided this was the time to redo it all. We ripped out all of the flooring on day two and have been looking at a ton of flooring samples trying to pick a favorite. We talk about some of our plans for this coming week in the video so be sure to check it out. Plus I posted…

    A Farmhouse Renovation by The Design Hunters

    Last year Megan photographed this gorgeous renovation for our friend Veronica Valencia of The Design Hunters. Veronica completely renovated this gorgeous farmhouse into the coziest (yet still masculine) home, and it’s bringing so much inspiration to us during our own renovation. I mean, those door handles alone are giving us all of the heart eyes. You can see more and read a little FAQ with Veronica on Jillian Harris’ blog here. But for now, feel free to scroll through and take a look at some of our favorites from the transformation. V also has a line out with Select Blinds and since we’re wanting some roman shades for our kitchen…
