home and greenhouse tour on apartment therapy

Super excited to share that our home and greenhouse were recently featured on Apartment Therapy! It’s always super fun and rewarding to see home tours go live, as it’s a way to celebrate how far we’ve come in our space and it always helps my business grow.

Two years ago this week, we were finalizing our move from San Francisco to Nashville and had just put an offer on a historic home in our favorite area of town. we were immediately drawn to the house’s charm and character and immediately knew that it was “the one.” 🥰 We’ve put a lot of love and projects into the house since then and it’s super fun and rewarding to see our home and backyard greenhouse that E built shared on a site I’ve loved for so long!

A few questions from the interview…and a look at each of the rooms in our home below! All photos were taken by local photographer Amber Kelly.

My Style: Refined modern bohemian. Bright and airy, colorful, and cheerful. Travel-inspired. Always evolving.

Inspiration: Travel… California surf culture, Moroccan souks, nature, and my girls! We have one of Eric’s old surfboards hanging in our living room; a nod to our time in California before moving to Nashville. I’ve always been drawn to Moroccan and Turkish textiles but after a recent trip to Marrakesh, I became full-blown obsessed with textiles. I started my own shop curating and selling Moroccan textiles, so our house inevitably is filled with many interesting blankets and pillows! Travel has always been a huge source of inspiration and joy for both of us—and I think that’s reflected in our home. We’ve always been “plant people” but now have 150+ plants in our house and greenhouse. I feel like I’m decorating around the plants at this point! I say that my girls are an inspiration when it comes to home decor, because it’s important to me that our house is a reflection of the stage of life we’re in—playful and messy and chaotic and FUN.

Biggest Challenge: Our house is 100+ years old and there’s a ton of character, but also lots of quirks and challenges! When we moved in, all of the trim—and there was a lot—was brown. The first thing we did was paint all the walls, doors, baseboards, and window trim a brighter white. It really brightened the space, making it feel much more modern and fresh. We have basically no storage or closets, which can be challenging. There are a lot of doorways and three fireplaces, which makes designing each room a challenge in terms of fitting in furniture and having a nice overall flow. In terms of the lack of storage, we tend to purge and donate things often to not have extra stuff sitting around. And we’ve come up with some pretty great storage solutions: baskets, baskets, baskets!

Best Advice: Your home should be a place you want to spend time in, and a reflection of you and your family. While I love beautiful, picture-perfect spaces, our house is a real place where we live—including a wild dog and two kids! We have Lucy’s dress-up area in our living room and her play kitchen in our family room. Since we don’t have a dedicated play room, I try to integrate “kids stuff” in a functional, but still beautiful way into the main areas of our home. I think it’s also important that your house serves you and the phase of life you’re in, too. Our family room (the one with the green accent wall) used to be our dining room, since it’s right off of the kitchen. After about a year of living in our house, we decided that the space could be better used as a family room even though that’s not the conventional set-up. We use this room SO MUCH MORE NOW, and I’m so glad we made the change because it’s been better for our family, even if that’s not what an interior designer or realtor would recommend.
