Hi!

Welcome to my blog where I document projects involving home renovation, staging and design.

State of the Interior (Rath Residence Remodel)

State of the Interior (Rath Residence Remodel)

In the midst of last week's election and the events which have followed, I thought it would be a good idea to take that time off from blogging to spend it with family and engage in some self reflection. No matter whose side you are on I think it's safe to say that our country is in a state of change-some may declare it's for the best, while others would argue that America is going through its worst moment. 

During this time, our home has also been going through some changes (none as serious as our country's of course). I am happy to report, and I would imagine most of America would agree (at least the popular vote ) that these changes are definitely for the better!

Therefore, I'm dedicating this week's post to the current state of the union, ahem, our home. So without further ado, welcome to the Rath residence...

We will start at the back of the house, in the sunroom (our absolute favorite spot to hang!)...

And moving on to the dining room, which, because of a wonky design choice by the previous homeowners, can be seen through a large opening in the sunroom (we assume that at one point, it was an exterior window and will eventually become french doors)...

To the left of the dining room is our "formal" living room. We like to call this room the cocktail parlor, but honestly that's what every room in our house could be called...

Off of the living room is the home office, which we have also dubbed "the library"- you'll understand why in a second...

And finally, for this week's part of the tour ( I will be sharing the rest of our home in another post), the den (which is actually the playroom, but since we're pretending to be fancy pants in Connecticut, we will stick with "the den" for now)...

Hope you guys like our house enough to give it your vote of approval ✓
