Virtual Home Tour

My Reading Corner

We’ve been getting some rain in Southern California – much needed during this drought season. Many of our house plants are outside and soaking in the water while I’m inside staying dry and reading a ton of books. And I mean a ton. I’m averaging to a book a day and I’m still going strong. I’ll go through reading bursts where all I want to do is read read read then all of a sudden, I stop. Then it’ll be months before I can get myself started on another book.

Anyways, since it’s been raining outside and I’ve been keeping warm inside, I figured this would be a good opportunity to show you all my nice slice of heaven: my reading corner.

Virtual Home Tour: The Dining Room (Before & After)

Here’s the Dining Room of The Virtual Home Tour! Let’s jump right into it.

THE DINING ROOM

As you can see in the Before picture, the walls are brown. It’s a good space and it was exciting brainstorming ways to fill in our little home.The dining area is pretty small but it works well for Russ and I since we don’t have kids yet. We’ve always figured our condo will be our starter home and hopefully as our family grows in the future, we’ll be able to find another home to fit our needs. For now, it’s perfect.

Virtual Home Tour: The Guest Bathroom (Before & After)

Here’s a look at our guest bathroom through our The Virtual Home Tour. Every time I have a visitor, the guest bathroom is one of the rooms I make them check out. It feels a bit weird forcing people to stand in the bathroom while I gush about the improvements…but I really do like this room! It’s so pretty!

THE GUEST BATHROOM

Sadly, I didn’t take a complete before picture of this bathroom before we fixed it up. Here’s the closest I can get to the “before” shot:

In this picture, the walls are already gray. When we first moved in, the walls were a peach color. (more…)

Virtual Home Tour: The Kitchen (Before & After)

I’ve been lagging on these posts, but it’s time to get it done. I’ll do a series of posts that show the before and after pictures of certain rooms in the Henry Home Condo. I’ve slacked off on virtual house tours on this blog since we’ve already had a house warming party and many of you have already seen it first hand. But for the sake of me wanting to look back on this in the future, and for the sake of being consistent, here’s the first part of the Virtual Home Tour.

THE KITCHEN

Here’s a picture I took of our kitchen on the day we got our keys.

The kitchen was simple and basic when we got the condo. Everything worked. Actually, we haven’t changed too much on it appliance-wise. There’s still a lot we plan to do with it but that won’t probably be until later next year. But! I don’t want to (more…)

Virtual Home Tour: Getting Our Home

Behold, before pictures of our home! We are still in process of making our home pretty (honestly, it might be a never ending process) but here’s how it all looked like on the first day.

Our first day of when we received our keys:
