Welcome to our new home! I can’t believe we moved almost three months ago. We house hunted for six weeks. We moved. I started a new job. The holidays came fast and furious (and we hosted gatherings for both┬áChristmas Eve and New Year’s Eve). We went on vacation. And then my grandfather passed away. It’s been a whirlwind, but I’m finally feeling like my head is above water and I can start getting settled in. Which means I’m finally getting inspired to decorate and make the space feel like ours, as evidenced by this photo of the formal living room I posted to my Instagram Stories last weekend.

But before I get too far down the road on any projects, I want to start by showing you the house as it looked the day we moved in. It’s very neutral, basic and builder grade, which will be a great jumping off point as I begin to infuse my style and personality into every square inch. Though I keep reminding myself that it took me four years to “finish” the town house and this place is nearly double the square footage — so pacing myself will be the name of this game. We’ll be in this house for the long haul so I want to be very deliberate with my design choices and do projects that are meant to last. I got to flex my design muscle for the first time in our last house and I’m bringing a more mature eye and color palette to this home. I can’t wait to share my design journey with you!

Okay, you’ve waited long enough! Welcome to the new Casa Genovese!
