Our adventure in house hunting began five months ago
while vacationing in Hawaii when we agreed
to a one time showing of our home which we
had taken off the market in part because
an interiors magazine wanted to use
it for a feature, and I welcomed
the opportunity with much joy.
To our surprise, we sold and and seized an opportunity
to downsize and begin a new chapter.
(Hopefully another publishing op will come.)
After months of shopping, we found a
humble one-and-a-half story cottage
which had been abandoned for years
and will require much love
in order to come
back to life.
Here is a peek:
Since we have already designed and built our dream house,
this project will be entirely different, and my goal is
to frugally create a peaceful retreat to feed our souls.
Tine Kjeldsen’s Scandi-chic style
(minimal yet personal)
appeals to me on many levels, and
here is a taste of her clean lines
and naturally cozy vibe.

We take possession of the new home in three weeks,
and it will take months to revive it.
There is something quite alluring
about bringing hope to a place
so very neglected and broken…
about bringing light and fresh air to
a shelter which suffocated
within a jungle of overgrown weeds.

I will share reflections of the journey with you
and welcome all your design help and encouragement
along the way…we’re gonna need it!
Peace to you right where you are.
