I couldn’t possibly be more excited to share a new feature with you guys today—our updated home tour is now live on Domino! In case you’re just tuning in, we moved into our 1960’s mid-century A-Frame ranch about three years ago, and have been pouring our hearts (read: blood, sweat, and tears) into the space from day one. To quote another cliche, it has been an absolute labor of love bringing this retro house into the new millennium, but I’ve never experienced anything quite so rewarding as renovating our dream forever home.
As soon as summer rolls around I tend to start thinking about reaching out to a local photographer to come document our house. First, it’s a great excuse to spend a fun day with a fellow creative and entrepreneur, but I also find it so gratifying seeing our home through another person’s lens since I document our house every day with my own camera for my blog. It’s a chance to spot angles and details that I might not have put much thought into before, and it’s also a great opportunity to capture all of the changes we’ve made to the space over the course of 365 days.
Despite the annual tradition, I still ask myself each time if I’ve made enough changes to the house to warrant a photoshoot, but (again) each time I surprise myself as I mentally catalogue everything we’ve done. It turns out that we’re constantly tweaking things here and there, and every single collection of home tour photos that we’ve had taken since I started this yearly activity seven years ago is different than the last. See last year’s tour here, and you can look through our very first tour after moving into our retro ranch here.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy these photos of our home circa 2018 by the ultra talented Meredith Sledge, and be sure to check out my full interview over on Domino.com with oh-so-sweet commentary by Elly Leavitt.

Congrats on the well-deserved feature, Carrie! Your house is just SO gorgeous!
Quick question about the bed in your guest bedroom: I see that it’s a vintage bed frame, but are you not using a box spring? We love the lower profile of a slatted bed, but can’t figure out how to use our vintage headboard and footboard without a box spring, which we’d like to avoid… hoping you’ve solved the dilemma!
Thanks, Nikki! I really appreciate the love!! As for the bed, I actually built a slatted support myself over the vintage metal bed frame. I laid wood boards that I bought at the hardware store across the frame so they spanned the width, and then laid a big piece of birch plywood over the wood boards for the mattress to sit on. That allowed us to ditch the box spring to get more of a platform silhouette 🙂 Let me know if you’d like photos!!
You’re a genius, Carrie! I should have known you figured out a DIY solution. I’ll definitely be hitting you up for the DIY details soon!
Awww, thanks!! I’m happy to help any way I can!
What an absolutely gorgeous home you have. Sorry if I skipped over this resource as I call myself looking at each and every one of them but I am curious as to the white paint color you used throughout your home. I am looking for a great white color for both my walls and trim and it is so hard to pick one out that doesn’t end up looking not so white.
I’m so thrilled you enjoyed the tour, Kristina!! And no need to apologize! The paint color we used throughout our home is “High Reflective White” by Sherwin Williams. It’s the purest white they have on their shelves! We love it.
I am so happy it is Sherwin Williams paint as that is my go to paint. I am sure I can use it for both my walls and baseboards and just change the sheen. Thanks!
Oh, perfect!! I’m sure you can do that, too! You’re welcome 🙂
This decor is flawless. Congrats!
Where is the woven and white pot planters in your living room from? I found that picture on Pinterest and would love to recreate! Thank you so much!
I’m so sorry, but I’m not sure what you’re referring to! If you can send a specific link to the photo you’re talking about, I’ll be happy to clarify 🙂 Thanks!

Thanks!! The white planter pot with the faux snake plant came from Target (but it’s old, so I don’t think they sell it anymore…sorry!).
