Today we are excited to welcome Sherri Bemis, of the bands Eisley and Perma, to the blog to share her lovely home with us!"I grew up just a stones throw away from what would become my future home! My parents house that we moved into when I was 15 is only a couple of blocks from mine and Max's 'Pink Palace'.We jokingly call it that, as the house was built in the 1930s and has a slight 'dollhouse' vibe. When we bought it, it desperately needed to be painted and luckily, I have a very easy-going husband, who was more than happy to let me play out my childhood dream of living in a pink house (my favorite color)! So we painted it a beautiful pale pink.""Max basically lets me have free reign on the decorating, which is almost like walking into my brain when you walk through the door. It's quirky, whimsical, childlike and a bit cluttered but also romantic! Haha. It's always evolving too. My rule is simple: Don't decorate with anything you don't absolutely love. I also wanted to create a world that was fun for kids to grow up in. So the furniture is to be jumped on, the 'things' are to be touched." "Max and I are avid readers, and he also has a fantastic comic book collection. So we built out the second living room in the house to be a library! I'm working on finishing up free-hand paintings on the sides of all the shelves." "One of my favorite finds is a simple wooden dresser that was super shabby. I painted it for my daughters nursery, while I was pregnant with her. It's cherry red with gold stripes and whimsical bumble bees now, and somehow I just knew it would fit her personality—it totally does! I love redoing old pieces and making them our own." "It's been a little over two years. And since the house was a sort of fixer-upper, we spent a lot of time redoing the boring things first: plumbing, electricity ect. But once we started getting settled in, it's just become our evolving project—always changing and tweaking things to make them feel or look better." "I live in my dream home. To some it may be just another old house, with creaks and drafts, oddly placed closets or cabinets. But to us it's perfect. It's our 'Pink Palace'."
