Welcome to Our Home
Something I'm really passionate about is the space I call home—I'm one of those people that loves moving, not because of the packing and purging, but because it gives me the opportunity to rethink my belongings and how I interact with them. I love not only making my home beautiful, but also cozy, comfortable, and functional. I think that making a space functional is where a lot of people struggle when building their space. It takes a lot of strategic thinking and internet searching to find objects and ways to utilize them that are both nice to look at and handy to have around.
Our building was built in the 1920's and has been kept in pretty good condition. Our biggest complaints are that there isn't a dishwasher and we have to hike down to the basement to do laundry, but we love living on the top floor. The hardwood floors and amount of light we get really make the place cheery—although the last few weeks, with temperatures in the high 80's we were super thankful one of our first big purchases was an air conditioner.
That said, here's a look inside our home. Most of our pieces were things that I had or Eric had, but we did add a few things like our couch, table, and dining bench. A fun challenge with this move was making our space one that felt comfortable for both of us and combined all of our things, without it feeling "too Eric" or "too Meghan." Thankfully, Eric trusts my opinion, and I think both of us really love our home.
