Meet the mountains.

Around two months ago, my parents bought a house along the Delaware River on the Pennsylvania and New York state border. Much like my current home, it’s a fixer-upper, only much more so. It has loads of potential and is situated on breathtaking land. My parents got this house so our whole family could spend more time together, whether we’re hiking, kayaking or just relaxing by the fire. We’ve been there as many weekends as possible to work on the house. Expect lots of design and renovation projects from this place, but for now, here’s an introduction.

Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. These are great pictures. I see what you mean by a fixer-upper but I think that it is going to look amazing with a little work, beneath the clean up work needed it already looks so beautiful.

    • Thank you! I am so excited to work with my family and get some of the more design related projects underway. Right now, those pesky “necessities” like hot water and windows are on the top of the list. 🙂
