a tour of our home

Feb 7, 2014

Hello! Today, I'm sharing a quick little tour of our home, which is brought to you via my trusty iPhone camera. I've been meaning to do this forever and can't believe I just got around to it now. So bad, but so me!! When it comes to our space, we're still wanting to add hardwood floors, swap out our gallery wall and buy a new area rug. Hopefully, I can feature updates of our home here & there on the blog throughout the year... if that's something you guys would like to see?! I also have a few DIY's that I'd love to share!!


We bought our home five years ago, and immediately fell head-over-heels for the over-height ceilings, mountain view and the fact that we're surrounded by the most breathtaking nature. We have the cutest village right down the street with adorable boutiques, restaurants and fantastic coffee shops. Our complex also has an outdoor pool, hot tub and a ton of private amenities like a fireside lounge, theatre room and tennis courts. The list goes on! In the summer, we love to hike with friends, barbeque and then dip in our pool - such a wonderful treat!

As for our home decor? I wanted to create a space that was warm, cozy but still modern. I love the beige walls, moldings and I'm a huge fan of our red accent wall. For the furniture, we focused on mostly white upholstery and dark wood. Since our kitchen is dark and our space is super open, I wanted everything to feel cohesive and have good flow. Martin & I are slowly starting to dream of a second home... but for now we're loving and enjoying this one so much. Hope you enjoyed the tour! xo

PS Have you done a tour of your home recently? Leave a link, I'd love to see!!

19 sweet notes:

  1. Your home is beautiful. I'm in the process of decorating mine and I can only hope I can be as put together as you. :)

  5. Aw, I always love seeing little sneak peeks of your space, it's so gorgeous! I've been thinking more and more lately about trying to makeover our space a bit - we've been living with the previous owners' decor for almost five years now and while they definitely had a certain aesthetic that the gives the place a cohesive feel... it's not our aesthetic, and that's something we'd like to change. Baby steps, right?! Hope you and Martin have a lovely weekend, V!

  7. A picture perfect home, dear Veronika!! My hubby and I FINALLY finished all the renovations we'd been planning - forever, it seemed like! - in our own condo just last year...our kitchen was the final big project!! As all of us who enjoy home decorating know, though, the work is never really done, is it?! I have various photos posted on my Instagram page (@stylepudding) if you want to check them out; but I may be "borrowing" your awesome idea of a home tour for my blog in the near future!!

  10. I always love seeing a peek into other peoples homes! I am in love with your kitchen - ours is tiny and when my dad built it 20 years ago from our old garage, I'm pretty sure he didn't design it to best use the tiny space haha! I'd love to see more posts like this in the future :)
    Have a lovely weekend!
