I kind of can’t believe I’m writing this post, it seems a little crazy to me (ok, it IS a little crazy). We decided to put our house on the market, and as of yesterday it’s up for grabs (and yes, we’re willing to part with almost all of the furniture/decor as well)! WHY ON EARTH you ask?! Well, we’re ready for change! We have a serious sense of wanderlust, we love the thrill of a new place, we haven’t made as many friends here in Palm Springs as we hoped to, we want to be closer to longtime friends…the list goes on. We LOVE this house, one of us may have even teared up a little when the first offer came in yesterday. BUT, at the end of the day our heads are on straight enough to know that a house is a house, things are things, and what really matters to us is that our family is intact, healthy and happy! We were planning on turning the house into a vacation rental, and if for some reason it doesn’t sell that’s just what we’ll do! But if not, at least we’ll always have these photos and the amazing memories we created here!

I love the way the dining room turned out SO MUCH! At night it glows with the most cozy, romantic, moody light from the chandelier and it’s just a dream. I will be very tempted to re-purchase that light for our next home! I actually will be very tempted to recreate this whole room, truth be told.
Our bedroom is one of my favorite spaces in the house- it’s a perfectly peaceful retreat and the worst thing about it is that sometimes it’s so lovely it makes it nearly impossible to get out of bed! I couldn’t love the built ins the builder chose more, and having this sort of dream closet/built in situation is going to be hard to beat.

We wanted each of the guest rooms to have their own style- as if each was its own little boutique hotel room! And we wanted one of them to be a little more masculine than the rest. So this room we kept simple, letting the striped throw blanket be the star. I wish the photo of the cow skull print had turned out better because it’s amazing in person and the photo doesn’t do it justice. But it plays off the striped throw perfectly and doesn’t compete too hard to be the star!
I think I’ve told you before, this is where all my recipe making happens, right here in my dream kitchen. Oh, it’s so good! That window that opens up to the outdoor dining space never fails to make me feel like I’ve won the lottery!

For this guest bedroom I wanted something feminine, peaceful and just a little decadent. I love the warmth of the room from the cream/gold wallpaper, shaggy rug, and warm wood. And that chandelier! It’s been in three houses with us already, I’l be very sad to leave it behind in this one! I seem to always find a spot that I LOVE it in!
The backyard. What can I say? It’s still crazy to us, when we’re floating in the pool looking around, that a place this magical even exists. We hope the next owners love it as much as we do!!!
