I have been waiting (admittedly) impatiently, for the final product of the Houzz home tour (shot last week) and it is finally live! 


Months of a total inability to post before and after shots of our renovation progress on the blog, totally irrelevant since they took all the shots for me. Worth the week of crazy cleaning and last minute projects me and the Mr did around the house. I was exhausted!


In the week before the shoot we managed to: get curtains hung in the guest room and last bedroom, put new hardware on dressers, clean out the basement, install a light fixture or two, and totally re-do our study. My father in law built custom shelves, which we painted and installed. The paint was barely dry when they came in for the shoot, but again, worth all the insanity to finally get this last room done and furnished. Sadly, they only included a few detail shot from the room. I hope to get my act together this week and post more on the project. Complete with before and after shots!


Huge thank you to Houzz for featuring our space and to Tess Fine, the talented photographer behind the lens.



From the story:

"It always kind of felt like ours," says fashion and lifestyle blogger Noelani Zervas of her 1928 brick Tudor. After a patient three-year search for a home with her husband, Michael, Zervas almost gave up until they found this house in Milton, Massachusetts, a town just south of Boston. "The house was empty but had good bones," Zervas says. Rumored to be built by the New England family behind Eddy Refrigerators, a 19th-century icebox producer, the house has a complete steel frame and ceiling beams throughout. "The house just needed some TLC, paint and someone with a little vision to pull it all together," she says.

Houzz at a Glance
Size: 2,600 square feet; 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms
That's interesting: All of the doors, knobs and cabinets were custom made for a left-handed person.
