As I begin writing this, snow is softly falling outside the window! Winter is here and Christmas is just 6 weeks away. I have already begun decorating homes, making wreaths and centerpieces, photographing families and designing fun custom Christmas cards. In my world, Christmas starts early. Last year, I had the privilege of working with the Goodwin Family as they gutted and renovated their home. We spent 9 months planning, picking out cabinetry, granite and tile, paint colors, furniture, fabric for window treatments I made, doing custom paint in bedrooms and on the entry-hall floor, and putting every last touch on their new home. In order to ensure things would be done by the holidays, Sarah signed up to be on a Christmas home tour. It gave us some pressure and the accountability we needed to keep on task and press on to complete the final details.
It was a blessing and honor to work on every last bit of the house with her and then to get to “deck the halls” for the home tour. It snowed on the day of the tour, which added a picture-perfect back drop to our winter wonderland. I was thrilled with how everything turned out, and hope you will be too!
Following are before and after pictures that you have to see to believe!
I don’t have before pictures of the upstairs bedrooms, but take a look at these fun after shots.
Thank you to the Goodwin family for allowing me to design and create beauty in your home. I had a truly wonderful time!
