The Blog

The Photo Gallery

I know some of you have already noticed, but I’ve added a photo gallery to the blog. There are sets of photos for each room, showing them from start to finish (or their current state if not exactly finished).

You could also browse through photos of the apartment Brandon and I lived in before we bought our home…

Or get an idea of what my neighborhood is like…



Or just see my top 50 flickr photos (your favorites, according to ‘interestingness’)…

scarves, pins, belts

Violet's hunting the elusive button on my coat.

There are more of my photos on flickr of course, but I think the photo gallery is a neat addition to the blog. I hope you like it!

    Discovered your blog last week – you have a beautiful home. I own a bungalow built in 1925, and it’s good to see someone else can appreciate this type of home and have such a great eye for design and color. My favorite would have to be the dining room…

    I didnt tell you yet that i love the new flickr feature! Looks great Nicole!

    What color did you use for the walls in the old apartment? I had forgotten how much I love your old living room. We have the same lockers in white.

    Cute picture of Violet! Murray gets a big EW this morning!

    Of all the rooms in your house, and they are all lovely, my absolute favorite is your library.

    Your photo gallery was so much fun to look through, Nicole. I just whiled away half an hour when I should’ve been working. ;-) Thanks for sharing your lovely rooms! -Julia :-)

    It’s true. For $50,000 it could be yours.
