Our Home: 90s Style + Peachy Keen

Hey y’all! In addition to sharing our progress as we renovate our vintage camper, we’ll also be sharing how we’ve turned (and continue to turn) our first/current home together from a basic 90s builder to a more unique cozy home that we love. (We’ll also be sharing our work on the flip house, but this post is on the former.) Since moving in 7 years ago, we’ve added some character and storage to make it more attractive and functional.

Oh, and please forgive the photo quality. Technology has a come a long way since then…

This must’ve been a  really  old photo, because the grass was non-existent when we moved in and there were differences in the shapes of the flower beds.

Fuzzy feelings or…?

Not that we didn’t fall in love with the house when we bought it years ago (a single-story open-concept layout with so many shade trees!), it was just peach inside. And when I say peach, I mean PEACH. In fact, the paint cans we found in the garage during our walk through called the color Warming Peach (just in case you love it for some reason and want to replicate the before look – hey, you do you). The good thing about it is during walkthrough the color made the home feel pretty bright, super cozy and warm, like a big homey hug. Exactly what we wanted our first home to be. The bad thing is it was peach. On every wall, every ceiling – and in closets too. Nothing was spared in the peach-tastrophy of 2012. Even the floors (spoiler alert: they’re regrettably still the floors we have…) are a taupe, that paired with the peach walls looked, well, peach.

So enough yakkin’ – here’s what it looked like when we bought her…

 

Before photos

A little rough, A LOTTA PEACH, 100% tiled, but still cute with loads of potential. Can’t wait to share with y’all how much she’s changed in the last 7 years (and how much there still is on my fixer upper list)!
