I'm an interior designaholic. There, I've said it. The first step is admitting it, right? I have a masters degree in Speech Language Pathology but looked into going BACK to school at the Art Institute for Interior Design. It was too much of a time and financial commitment, but I seriously considered it.
Anywho, I've never posted a home tour on the blog. I've been all wrapped up in wine, product reviews, recipes, and celebrity silliness.
Yep, you guessed it. Today is my first home tour. Since I'm a newbie at this, I figured I'd be my own, first guinea pig.
We designed and built our house in 2009 and called it our own on February 12, 2010. It was such an incredible process (not the moving silly, the designing and building) and I would love to have the opportunity to do it again someday. Our builder was amazing and we've since become friends with him, his wife, and their adorable baby girl. If anyone in Charleston is considering building a house, use the best...Carl Owens with Image Homes.
Many of these photos were taken when we first moved in, so they're free of the clutter and some of the finishing touches we've put on the house. You can get the general idea, though. The last few are photos I took. I'm sure you'll recognize those right away due to the junk and the less than professional quality (I'm blaming my craptastic camera).
Here's my home tour, friends....
|Banquette in kitchen|
|We added a rug and centerpiece.|
|Butler's Pantry - where all the Baby Mama Juice lives|
|Carved Master Bedroom Door|
|Standing River Rock in Master Shower|
|TV, Fireplace, and my Vanity|
|Baby Girl's Room|
|One of the older girl's rooms. There are 2 more bedrooms and a playroom that aren't shown.|
|FROG - For all of you non-southerners, this means Finished Room Over Garage and is our guest suite.|
|Mudroom that connects the garage to the kitchen.|
Thanks for bearing with me through the millions of photos. Hope you liked it!
*Good photos by Stello Photography. Sub par photos by me, of course.
p.s. Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice? Because I'm still in my pajamas today (4 pm). The good news is that I did brush my teeth. The bad news is that Mr. BMJ is going to come home to a rough looking Baby Mama. It's been a sick jammie day at our house. Baby girl is super sick and I rocked her to sleep again last night and she fell asleep in my arms after lunch while watching her "shows." It's breaking my heart, but I do love the snuggle time.
A bitter sweet situation.....
