New Year, new house

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year with your friends and family. I traveled to New Orleans and Mississippi to see my loved ones and it was amazing. Except that my sister and brother in law were sick the entire time! My mom and I went out to look at a house that she had been eyeing online. We never met a piece of real estate we didn't like! She is really wanting to do a clean white farmhouse look, but this property is more adobe style. We loved it at first sight but I honestly never thought my stepdad would move on something over the holidays, or at all so quickly. We thought we were just looking for fun.

The day I left, she took him to see the house and they made an offer on it the next day. They got the house and close on Valentine's Day! I can't believe it but I am so thrilled for them. It is so unique for Mississippi, and though it needs a lot of work, we are going to make it a stunner! I have not designed anything in the modern adobe or hacienda style, so I cannot wait!

The best part of this house is the interior courtyard with the covered walkways going all the way around the house. I am in love!

Isn't it amazing? I will keep you posted on the changes we make. My stepdad is not a fan of painting wood or pulling out rustic elements, but I would love to clean it up and pare it down even more. Happy hump day!

I can completely understand why they fell in love with it at first sight…I would have put an offer in too! The courtyard, the timbers,, the ambience….a brilliant style of architecture which is so very liveable.
