Slightly different angle, but holy moly has this space come a long way! If you missed our progress on #theblondevic you can catch up on the blog - click the link in bio or head to beginninginthemiddle.net/blondevicprogress. Can’t wait to show you more & share our plans for the house soooooon! #beforeandafter #beforeandalmostafter?

Well friends, she’s getting there! We can’t wait to get trim repaired, some sweet landscaping done, and get everything painted this fall (yup, we’re going for it!!) You can’t see it from this photo, but the house is already painted in the back, and there’s lots of paint & soot marks on the front that make the whole exterior feel distressed. Swipe to see a close up.

This is the first time we’ve painted brick so we’re jussssttt a tad bit nervous, but we have a vision & know it’s going to look SO GOOD. If it were up to you, what color scheme would you do? #theblondevic

We started planning furniture & decor for #theblondevic over the weekend!! It’s crazy almost being finished, knowing that we were so tempted quit & sell as-is on multiple occasions throughout the reno. Waiting until the end & getting to see it all come together is the most rewarding part, and I’m so thankful that we kept chipping away even when it felt like we couldn’t.

The third floor master suite at the Vic is one of my favorite spots in the house. There’s lots to love up here, but the ceiling might take the cake. It’s over 10’! We framed out a tray ceiling & left a gap for indirect lighting instead of doing cans... because indirect lighting in the bedroom is always a good idea right? 😉 We also added a hint of imperfect rustic charm w/ a few beams from @azfauxbeams. They’re foam and only weigh a few lbs each which made them super easy to work with. We can’t wait to share more of this space soon — furnishing starts this month!! #theblondevic.

The parlor at the Vic. Same view, 1 year later ♥️ #theblondevic #swipeleft

When we started working on #theblondevic there wasn’t a whole lot left, but we felt inspired by the structure of the house and what we knew it could be. We could just feel it from the first time we saw it - the tall ceilings, hints of character under the painted floors, and this one piece of woodwork in the parlor that was in amazing shape despite the rest of the house being in shambles. We decided to leave the door trim & doors unpainted throughout the first floor to tie in with the existing parlor woodwork, and love how they pick up on the directional detail in the floors. Most of this house is brand new, but keeping original details like this woodwork, these slightly crooked pocket doors and the original oak floors make it still feel old. And we like that. A lot.

So happy we went dark in the Vic kitchen! It’s shaping up to be super close to what we had planned in our rendering, with a few fun twists. Because there’s always twists ☺️ @semihandmade @mixdesigncollective

Shower glass is in!! This room has come so far - swipe to see what this corner used to look like 😱 We’re sharing another peak of the first floor progress in Stories, too. Let us know what you think! #theblondevic

We had fun answering your questions in Stories! We saved them to our Q&A highlights in case you missed them. We got a bunch of messages about the status of #theblondevic & are happy you guys love it as much as we do ☺️ The latest is that we decided to keep it instead of sell (🎉), and we’re almost done with the interior renovations. The reason you haven’t seen much of it lately is because we’ve been focusing on our @mixdesigncollective client projects for the past few months - we want to make sure everyone gets taken care of before we resume work on our own projects 🙂 We’re planning on having it mostly finished by the end of the summer & can’t wait to show you more soon!

Guys, it’s official. We finalized our refinance & are keeping #theblondevic!! After over a year of financial, emotional, mental, and physical investment in this home, we decided we’re not ready to let it go just yet. We’re excited to put the finishing touches on it this summer & tell you all about our plans soon. Stay tuned!!

Oh hi, we’re alive! We’ve been MIA because we decided to take a little (long?) break from Insta to hit the reset button. On our hiatus, we went on a big family vacation to Italy (all 12 of us), worked on more @mixdesigncollective projects than we can count, and finalized the refinance of #theblondevic which means we’re officially keeping it!! We’re sharing lotssss of photos from our trip in Stories - it was the first time ever that our whole family traveled out of the country together, and it was really special. More on everything else soon - stay tuned!! 📷 @elizabeth.train.
