A House Tour with Parisian Flare

I absolutely love the home of Effie Genovese, a Vancouver designer who runs the firm, The Space Agency Design. It was featured recently in Style at Home. It blew me away to find out that the home is only 3 years old! It was built new to look old. The owner lived in France for nearly a decade and wanted her home to feel like it was plucked right out of Paris, filled with charming, old world details.

I think it's simply beautiful. Have a look!

Lovely. I could move right in!

House For Sale

Hi and how are you? I hope you had a nice weekend and a happy mother's day. Sorry I wasn't around much at all last week. I was busy transforming cupboards and closets that looked like this...

Into this...

Not to mention scrubbing walls and bathrooms that were so bad I could have done before and after shots too (but that would have been slightly embarrassing).

Anyway, it's all done and the realtors came yesterday afternoon to do the appraisal. If you want to see the listing you can do so here.

While the house was all perfect, I shot a few pictures myself. The lighting in the master bedroom was just right but the rest of the house was a little dark. You'll get the idea of what our house looks like though. We've lived here almost 2 years. When we purchased the condo it was in good shape so we didn't feel like we needed to do much to it. If we were going to stay a little longer we would probably do some more work to it, but it's in great condition and has been perfect for our little family.

I'm going to miss our first place. While we haven't lived here long, there are still many fond memories attached to this home. Our son has gone from 3 week old baby to busy 2 year old boy here. Thankfully we have lots of pictures and videos to help us remember and re-live our time here.

Now, to keep it looking this way. Wish me luck!
