Our House Tour


Before I left for Zurich, we had been decorating and organizing like crazy. For me and J, our house is always an evolving work in progress, but now that we are at a point where it's feeling more "finished," I am so excited to share our house photos with you.

What's even more exciting is that I get to point you on over to Design Mom for the full reveal. I have been a huge fan of Gabrielle Blair's for several years now. I discovered Design Mom when we were living in Switzerland and the Blairs were living in France. Gabrielle's writing on her blog is so open and heartfelt. This honest post on depression echoed in my ears last summer when I was having a hard time. And their Olive Us videos are just too sweet for words. If you're not a reader already, I highly recommend it. Plus, it's now a book!

So, without further ado, and if you haven't seen it already, please head on over to Design Mom to see our sweet little nest and read all about our transition into the living-small reality that makes our little family of four so happy. Thank you for reading, and thank you, Gabrielle, for the feature! I am beyond excited. xo

  1. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us! It's beautiful! I love all your art work, which really makes me wish we had art work. On our living room walls are lots of family photos and in our bedroom two framed posters of Zermatt -- that's it. I am really curious about this mounting posters on aluminum idea... By the way, is that a Dohm sound machine in the kids' room? Anyway, gosh I can totally relate to the idea of wanting to live the American dream and buy a big house with a finished basement and a big yard -- or at least thinking that's what you want. I thought that's what I wanted too, but now I am not so sure. My husband, however, is stuck on that dream. Meanwhile, I am still dreaming of moving back to CH. I don't care if I live in a little apartment, that I don't understand what everyone is saying, that the customer service is terrible -- life is just so good there. He's the practical one, thinking about retirement. I am the idealist, thinking about our kids having the ultimate education of living abroad. Oh, to live in a place that just feels right, like it's where you belong. One thing we do agree on is that we don't belong in San Diego (even though I grew up here). Well, his dream is more attainable, so that's what we're aiming for now, to move some place with a lower cost of living so we can buy a house. I almost started crying when I read how much you pay in rent for your sweet little house. We pay double that for a crappy duplex apartment/house. Know anyone hiring a mechanical engineer in Spokane?? ;)
