Some of you might remember about a month ago when I mentioned that Trey and I MIGHT be buying a new house. Emphasis on the might because we had a house fall through the night before closing, so I was feeling pretty unsure of everything until it was all official.
Well, it’s official. And I thought it might be fun to show you what our new house looked like the day we bought it. I say looked like (past tense) because I shot this video almost three weeks ago. SO much has already changed. If you follow me on IG (@emmaredvelvet), then you may have seen that I’ve been spending pretty much every night after work and the weekends painting. More on updates soon, but first, check out my empty home tour video:
This house was originally built in the late 1960s. It has gone through a LOT of remodeling and updates in the past few years as the owner before us (rumor has it) bought the house at auction and has been working to flip it. I just LOVE the wood ceilings he added. I also really, really love the layout of this house. As you can see from the video though, there are a few things that just aren’t my taste. Luckily, I really enjoy personalizing spaces, so that’s what we’ll be doing in this house (slowly) over many years to come. Can’t wait to see how we make this house feel like home, and can’t wait to share it all with you guys. 🙂 xo. Emma
