This home was on the brink of being condemned and demolished. MSB Homes purchased the property as a restoration project and completely stripped it down to the studs. Springpoint Architects created the plan for the addition replacing the screened in patio on the back of the home and doubling the original floorplan. I was brought on as a consultant to ensure that its original mid-century charm would remain intact. We staged with some beautiful piece from Jeff’s Warehouse. We were able to preserve and restore the original limestone fireplace. Smart Home Automation was installed throughout the home, beautifully updating the home with modern ambiance. This home was listed for sale on August 28th, 2019. Check out the listing on @zillow. More information and photos from this project are on my website.
This quote found it’s way to me this week from my Feng Shui mentor, Tisha Morris. How true this is. It mirrors the quote - “Be the change you would like to see in the world.” and “If you would like to change the world, start with yourself.” It makes getting our house in order seem like the path of least resistance. Here’s to weekend home projects that nourish our soul and change the world. 🥂 🌎 ✨
Everyone loves a good before and after. I’ve been so excited to see these colors on this house. I worked with the homeowners to find the perfect combination of blue and aqua. A lot of the other houses in this neighborhood have fun and vibrant contrasting colors. This poor house was feeling left out! It still amazes me even though it’s my every day life, how much a fresh coat of paint can change the look of the house. Color is powerful! Painting was done by @colortheoryllc
I’m currently reading ‘Do Better Work’ by Max Yoder. This quote is used to start the chapter on vulnerability. Maybe this is a Midwest mentality, but I often find that people have a hard time asking for help. The DIY culture runs deep and I often see people who have dealt with a difficult home situation for a long time. Ask yourself, are you more committed to improving your life or proving you’re capable? When you’re living your best life, when do you ask for help? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

I got to spend the day with some of my favorite people yesterday for my birthday. We went to the @indianadesigncenter and drooled over lighting design, sinks, appliances, tile.... ooooh what a wonderful day! We wrapped up our trip with a stop at the @ninelivesindy Cat Cafe.
