The following photos were taken the week after we moved in our house (October 2007). My mom did most...actually all of the designing. I really didn't know my design style - so going with what she wanted to do was the easiest thing! Now that I'm older and willing to take design risks I am slowly updating my home. I am changing everything from the wall color to the furniture, even curtains and accessories. My goal is to achieve my personal style on a budget!
This is the front of our home. (Before landscaping)

My husband even added DIY outdoor lighting. Yes, the electrical engineering degree comes in handy!! After gift cards and a lot of manual labor we were able to complete this for roughly $200 out of pocket. Personally, I think the results are priceless!

Pre-Decluttering. I removed many of the items off the counters. (photo from Oct. 2007)
I know I need everything from window treatments to refinished furniture! (photo from Oct. 2007)
I have to say this is my least favorite room. There is so much work that needs to be done! (photo from Oct. 2007)
