Designer Diaries: What We're Up To

Remember a few months ago when I listed some photos of my house and announced it was for sale? I kept our plans under wraps a bit but today I’m sharing the newest adventure in the Blum family: We’ve purchased another renovation-ready home in our lovely Des Moines, IA neighborhood!

As an interior designer, I get to help clients create their dream homes through new builds and renovations. It’s such an amazing process. I’m immersed in so many stunning styles and trends on a daily basis and now I get to transform a beautiful blank canvas into my own dream home for my family. We were able to make some significant changes in our current home as well but this project is going to be an even larger transformation and I want to let you in on the details.

Being an interior designer means I have so many options at my finger tips ready to be used but it can be overwhelming. Thankfully, being a mom means that some options aren’t as practical as others. Finding elements with style and functionality is always my go-to when designing for my family and others.

That’s what this new blog series is: A weekly update on my family’s home renovation called Designer Diaries. Each Friday you can expect a new blog full of my design plans for each room, inspiration and where things are in the process of being done. I’d love it if this became a space where people feel free to ask questions and share their advice. I want to hear from you!

Next week I’m sharing more interior photos of where we’re starting with the house and inspiration shots of the overall feel I’m going for in the design. If you love high-end style, the renovation process or following along as two business owners and their little boys transform a gorgeous but out-of-date large tudor home, subscribe to and share this blog!

Victor and Harrison show me their favorite pieces I’ve pulled for the house so far.
