New House Tour (Kinda)

August 26, 2013


So last week I hesitantly introduced you guys to our new house. This week I can more confidently share because all our inspections are done and our mortgage situation is pretty much figured out. It’s pretty official now. This is our new house! Now I can stop being wary and start being excited because this place is CUTE!

We don’t close on the house and get to move in until the middle of October–which is for the best, really, since the lease on our loft is up October 31. Since I’ve been super busy and stressed out due to work stuff and all this house biz lately (therefore letting my blog suffer), I thought I’d share the photos the listing agent took of the house. You get to see a little tour of how freaking adorable the place is before all our junk clutters it up! Haha. I want to try decorating this place as best as I can, but our loft is still pretty full of junky college hand-me-down stuff. Making the house our own will be a long process, but I hope to share it with you guys for sure!












I really can’t believe how lucky we got. My obsessive real estate stalking paid off! Go figure!

  • Ohh! Congrats! The place looks so amazing! I hope you share it once you’ve added your own touch!

    • Michelle

      Thank you, Natalie! <3 I definitely will share as we're able to decorate!

  • CONGRATULATIONS BABE! I’m so excited for you and will be looking forward to seeing how you decorate it! <3

    • Michelle

      Aww, thank you, Kailey!!! I want to make the area around my vanity super pink and girly and remind me of you! :) <3

  • WOW, it’s beautiful!!! Congrats!

    • Michelle

      Thank you, Angel! <3

      Thanks, Sammi! <3 I think the kitchen might be one of the cutest parts!

  • OMG, THE HOUSE FROM THE INSIDE IS JUST AJSVAGAS *-*. I’m sorry, I really have to spazz here!!!

    I love how every room is connected and how spacious it is ♥.

    • Michelle

      Haha, thanks, Sora! I kinda felt the same way! <3 I love the little family room that's open to the kitchen. I know that's going to be my favorite place to hang out for sure!

  • Congratulations
    It’s so beautiful!

    • Michelle

      Thanks, Claire! xo

    Unf. It’s so cute. My parents and grandma live in various STL suburbs and this is such a quintessential st louis house :) Y’all did an amazing job with finding this one!

    • Michelle

      Gurrrl, you need to let me know next time you’re in STL! I’d love to meet for coffee or drinks or something! :) The house totally looks like it belongs in Holly Hills, but it’s in U City! I’m super happy with the location–so far!

  • Oh my word that house is beyond adorable! Congratulations!

    • Michelle

      Thanks, Amanda! Almost everything else pales in comparison to your little mountain dream home, though! It’s going to be unbelievable once you’re finished!

  • Wow, it’s beautiful! Congratulations on your new home!

    • Michelle

      Thanks, Lizette! Very sweet of you <3

  • It is absolutely stunning!

    • Michelle

      Thank you, Laura! <3

  • How exciting!! It looks SO CUTE ^__^

    • Michelle

      Thanks, Lisa! I’m pretty excited! xo

  • alex

    wow it’s soooooo cute, hot damn you guys got a good one

    • Michelle

      Right?! Here’s hoping! Can’t wait to have you guys over asap <3 <3

  • Wow, it’s absolutely beautiful, congratulations! Can’t wait to see how you decorate it!

    • Michelle

      Thanks, Julie! I hope we can do it justice!

  • Wow! Looks like a great house with fantastic bones and I can’t wait to see how you decorate it. Good luck with all the buying a house/moving stuff.

    • Michelle

      Thank you, Kristian! <3 We need all the luck we can get for sure. Haha

  • CUTEST HOUSE EVER! I like our house, but I really wanted one more like yours. Of course, we had sort of a limited time to find one before our apartment lease was up :/

    • Michelle

      Thank you, Bethany! Aww, that’s what I was afraid of during our search. :( Our lease is up on October 31 and we’re planning to have a friend move in with us when he moves back to town in December, so we had a short timeframe, too. House searching is stressful. So many expectations and limitations to deal with. :/

  • I love love love love love it! I’m swooning over that kitchen. Can’t wait to see you add your own flair to it. If you have any projects you want to share, I know a great interiors blog who would love to host you… wink :)

    • Michelle

      You know I will! I’m sure I’ll be coming to you for advice! :)

  • Wow — so many wonderful details! Congrats!

    • Michelle

      Thanks, Jennifer! The house has a great mix of contemporary conveniences and quirky vintage details. It’s perfect! :)

  • It really does look absolutely amazing! Congratulations, lovely!!! xx

  • Oh my gosh!!! I am SUPER jealous! That house is so perfect! Are you going to paint the door a different color? I like the blue, but some people like a door that ‘pops’ haha Just curious :) Congratulations!!

    • Michelle

      Thanks, Stephanie! <3 I actually LOVE the door color as-is!

  • This house is amazing! So much space and light, and I love the wood floors.
    Can I move in too? I promise I’ll share my shoes with you and bake lots… lol
    I’m so happy for you and very jealous too, it’s like a dolls house
