House Tour // Our Current Home (part deux)

2Master

Yesterday I shared the first level of our two-level home but I'm back today, to share the upper level.

Originally, this part of the home was for servants only. Even when it was converted to two units in the 1940s, the 3rd level was kept for the "staff" for each apartment (we have the conversion plans showing rooms laid out for "Jenny" and "Evie") but by the time we purchased the property, the uppermost level had been converted into a space comprised of  2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a laundry space.

2Bed1

The smaller of the two bedrooms has always been our son Rett's room; it's such a sweet space tucked up into the eaves.

It made a great nursery for our first born (you can see pictures of it set up as a nursery here) and has remained the perfect size for him as he's grown. There's just enough space for a bed, a dresser, a reading nook and open "play space".

The larger of the two bedrooms is actually made up of two rooms: the master bedroom and the "turret room".

The master isn't huge by any means but it gets wonderful light in the afternoon and I've always loved the color we painted it ("Sea Salt" by Sherwin Williams). There's a separate dressing area where we have bureaus, etc. and then, off of that, is the sweetest room in the entire house: the turret room.

2Nursery

When we first moved in, we used the space as a study but when our daughter Greta arrived two years ago, we converted the space into her nursery.

And oh, what a glorious space it has been for our littlest little. I've blogged about it before but I love the space so much that I just had to share some more pictures. If there was one thing I wish that we could take with us, it would have to be this little round room.

It's been a perfect space for her for the past two years but she's nearing the end of her time in her oval-shaped Stokke crib and there's not enough room for a twin bed in this room. Plus, she's also learned that we're in the adjacent space so if we want everyone to get enough rest, we have to sleep in the guest room downstairs. Yet another reason why we felt it was time to make a move...

So there you have it; our house in pictures (thanks again to Justin Anfuso for the images!). Can't wait to share the new house ... and my plans for it (insert evil laugh here).

  1. You are so talented, though I didn't need to see pics to know it! I have a a Q for you.....what's the paint color in R's room? I'm obsessed with that perfect shade of blue.

    Hey sweet lady! It's "Sleepy Blue" by Benjamin Moore; it's a great true blue without being annoyingly bright. Are you trying to find something for the nursery?

  4. Thank you! I want to do something subtle in Reece's room and will either go with a strong rugby striped curtain on a super light gray wall or go with the blue wall and a different curtain.... #bigdecisions

  5. Of course! Both options sounds awesome; if you go the grey route, give Ben Moore's "Oystershell" and "Revere Pewter" a look. Both are great all around grays that are warm without being overly grey...
