Our Tudor Home in Progress

We’re currently in a state where our tudor home is ever evolving – even if it’s not as quickly as I’d like! I plan to  continue sharing our home progress in individual blog posts, but I’ll also be updating the home tour here, with an image of each room & a link to the most recent post. Bookmark this page & join me on the journey as we take a house I didn’t love so much & turn it into a home I’ll adore. It’ll happen, right?

  7. Hi Julie, I must say that I love your style. I am just starting the renovation process I had the real plaster crown moulding done. Love it but it was so dusty. Would only do plaster again if I was moving into a new home..Julie, I am so new to pin interest but wanted to know if you are based in CANADA OR THE USA?
    In addition do you have a website?
    Thanks for your inspiration and amazing talent

    All the best, Susan
