I am passionate about decorating. It’s my joy.

My husband Drew and I fell in love with an old adobe home in Santa Fe, New Mexico that needed a massive renovation. Everything was torn down except the original living room and thick adobe walls. It was really hard to destroy the details that delighted us from the beginning but they had to go so we could maximize the small living spaces with sensible flow.

After two long years and the requisite setbacks, we finished the renovation, decorated it with eclectic vintage items, and created a happy home that retained the footprint and essence of the original 1930s adobe. Here are some before and after photos taken from almost the same angles.

If you ever want to stay at our place, let me know. We rent it out often when we’re not there.
