Books + Books

At the beginning of 2014, I went through a severe decluttering phase that helped in so many other areas of life. I revamped my wardrobe, nailed my personal style and color palette, and even began helping my girlfriends rid their closets of the unnecessary.

In 2015, I discovered that I’m really someone who likes to see my favorite things displayed in the home, so I don’t fit completely in the minimalist camp. I’d like to think I’m somewhere in the middle :)

One of the greatest joys for me is seeing books lovingly stacked in all areas of a home. I dream of having a dining room with a beautiful wall of bookshelves filled with colorful volumes of fiction, memoirs, and cookbooks.

I got rid of a lot of books in 2014. I don’t think I’ll go down that road again for awhile, lol. I think books add so much to a space.

Whether the genre is home + garden or inspirational, I’d love to hear your recommendations. Thanks so much!

Housewarming: Casa de Jules

Hello and welcome to my home!

My name is Jess and my family and I live in a quaint, two-bedroom apartment in the San Francisco Bay Area. My husband is a youth minister and I currently work part-time at a local church. We are blessed with two college-age daughters.

Cooking, reading, essential oils and photography are some of my interests.

I love the blogging community, and especially enjoy getting to know others who love sharing their homes and ideas.

Like many of you, my design style has unfolded over the years, and I’d say that the coast of California is a big influence for my taste today. The changing of the seasons has recently stirred me to begin decluttering and sprucing up areas in our apartment, which has been a lot of fun.

Our master bedroom is an exciting work in progress. Listed are some of the sources below:

1. Multi-Colored Lumbar Pillow – Home Goods (This pillow represents our home’s color palette perfectly, so it was a thrill to bring home!)

2. Table Lamps – Tuesday Morning (Found these on a whim for a great price.)

3. White Coverlet – Ikea (Clean and white.)

4. Bay Bridge Canvas Photo – Goodwill (Hubby came home with this!)

5. Silk Peonies on Night Stand – Target (An adorable imitation at just $6.99.)

I’m grateful you stopped by and encourage you to make yourself at home. I look forward to getting to know you and sharing more of our home!
