This week the lovely Andrea Calo shot professional photos of my latest listing. This house is pretty special, and it takes someone of her caliber to really do it justice. With that caveat I did want to share a couple shots I took while she was working her magic. The house has so much personality, both in the architectural elements and in the interior design I could go around shooting vignettes in there all day long.Read More
Growing up in Utah I did my fair share of climbing. Despite my love of the outdoors however, probably some of my favorite climbing has been bouldering in gyms. For those of you who don't know, bouldering is a form of climbing where you ditch all the ropes and harnesses and stick to short routes with pads underneath them in case you fall. As soon as I caught wind of a bouldering gym in East Austin, I was super stoked.Read More
I love a good project as much as the next guy, but lately I haven't had much ambition to take on anything too big. Ever since we moved into our new house we've had plan of installing some lighting above our dining room table, but the thought of putting more money or time into this house was a hard pill to swallow. Despite my laziness, when 8 new Plumen bulbs showed up on my doorstep, I just had to do something with them. So I took the easy way out.
Enter the DIY Chandelier, just screw it edition.
This idea has been kicking around my head for some time now. I'm sure I'm not the first one to think of it, I probably saw it on Pinterest or somewhere once upon a time. The secret to this chandelier is it's all about the bulb. You could dramatically change the look just by switching out the style of decorative bulb.
So, here is what you need.Read More
After a few weeks of lingering projects, we've finally managed to wrap up most of the big things on our house. During the last week we made a big push and got some floating shelving with lighting installed in the kitchen, as well as some hanging Plumen lights for general lighting. I took a few minutes yesterday to take some photos of the (almost) finished project, and I thought it was a good time to share some before and after photos.Read More
