Sister's home



My life has taken a delightful turn the last couple of months.  My sister and her husband have purchased a home for their future retirement in Provo.  It is in an older neighborhood not far from where my mother use to live.  It means that my future Utah time will include more time with my sister.


It has been newly landscaped while keeping much of the old.  It has been beautifully renewed and updated on the inside.


It has a unique container gardening system.  I love container gardening.  I've been given permission to forge ahead next summer.


It has lovely views of the mountains, including Mt. Timpanogos.


The remodeled kitchen


and dining area.  I love all the finishing touches like molding, bead board, and window frames and sills..


The windows are large and the spaces light filled.


It's a welcoming space with dreamy subtle wall colors.


All bathrooms have been updated


and bedrooms individualized.



The wood floors are beautiful and have a welcoming "creaking" sound.


The lower level is also full of light.


Behind this french door is a giant space.  We are already talking about creating and sewing here together.


She will also have the perfect guest retreat with bathroom


and very private bedroom.


Every beautiful paneled door is framed out the same with gorgeous hardware.  Looks like I will have to share the visitors who come through Provo.  Congratulations Sis!  I'm so glad you found the house that felt like home.

Wow, they found a beautiful house, or did she do all that herself?

The best part about this home is that all the updating and careful decorating choices had already been done. They walked in the first time and it felt like home. So happy for them!
