Welcome to My Home!

Officially a Grown-Up?

First-Time Homeowner

Buying a house is obviously a large financial purchase and with it comes so much responsibility. I contemplated buying for a couple of years because I couldn’t decide on a location and I didn’t feel ready to make such a real-life adult decision. Well, here I am now. I just turned 28 and I’m officially a homeowner and an adult — I guess. Can I still keep referring to myself as a “young adult?” Where did all those years go?! Anyway, this past April I purchased a 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom townhouse in northern Virginia. I’m a northern VA native and after living all over the U.S. (and the world) there still isn’t a place I’d rather call home than the D.M.V.

Interior Decorating


I was instantly obsessed with all 2500 square feet of my three-level home and anxious to fill up my personal space. I had the walls painted and hardwood floors installed while the place was empty. This ended up being a great decision since I was living in Connecticut all summer. Then I found furnishing/decorating inspiration on Pinterest (of course), it really helped me learn and gave me a vision. I browsed in-store, online and through catalogs; my favorite stores are definitely Target, West Elm, Overstock (online), IKEA and AtHome. I came to the conclusion that my interior decorative style preference can only be uniquely labeled as “Mid-Century-Rustic-Industrial-Farmhouse.” There are so many things I love about each of those styles that I decided to take ideas from them all.

Although I haven’t finished the house yet, I planned to have a housewarming/birthday party before I left for overseas. Unfortunately, the timing didn’t work out. Then I thought, why not show you what the house is looking like right here!

Virtual Housewarming Party

Welcome! Below I’ve put together some photo galleries of the rooms and a few pieces that I really love. I did the best I could to capture a clear view of each layout. I’m clearly not a professional photographer (working on it, though). You can also click HERE for a quick virtual walk-through!

Everything was 100% picked out, arranged, styled and assembled by me (and Alyssa).
