Apartment Therapy published this article in 2013, but the design still feels so fresh today—probably because they didn’t follow any of-the-moment trends. Instead, the room was designed around the art prints by Carin Goldberg—man, I love them—which really bring the space to life.

Remember the simple seashell birth announcement and its successor, the simple floral birth announcement? Well, ladies and gentlemen, we have a third installment in the simple series. A third sister was born, and so was a third announcement.
The family wanted this one in cheerful yellow. It’s a little more whimsical than the others, with a cute chicky hatching out of an egg, but it worked for everyone. Though if they have more children, I may be out of ideas.

Wahoo, gutters and downspouts were finally installed after a couple of months of waiting for our order to come in (apparently the order was misplaced).

God help us. We weren’t planning on touching the kitchen for another 5-10 years, but the odor of the house continues to offend our senses.
Don’t let the quaint, solid-wood cabinets fool you. They fooled us, too. We thought we would keep them. In the end, we realized the only way to pinpoint the source of the odor was to start removing cabinets. This is the photo my husband texted to me before he got started this morning:
Today’s demolition resulted in removed cabinets and flooring, with layers of rot, trash, and dirt, built up over years. This is the pile of trash he found underneath the first set of cabinets he removed:
He had a suspicion that some of the smell was coming from the floor also, so he started pulling up three layers of vinyl flooring:
Leaving us with this current situation:
