About Us

Hey!  I’m Amber!  My handsome hubby, Jake, and I just bought this crazy 70’s fixer up on a gorgeous mountain top in New Jersey.  We are keeping busy renovating the entire house mostly on our own and wanted to find a fun way to document the renovation that we could also share with our friends, family, and new friends!

I am an artist and spent the last chapter of my life painting watercolor portraits of pets, people, and homes.  Jake happens to be incredibly handy with power tools and knows how to rock a tool belt and beard!  We have two spunky little boys and an even spunkier dog named Jasper.  Being with them is our favorite pastime.

In design, I  love everything classic, usually with a small twist.  My dream for this house is to turn it into a modern farmhouse that looks like it might have been built in the 1920s.  First we have to get rid of all of the traces of 1973!  It’s hard work, but we wouldn’t change it for the world.  Thanks for reading!
