Our town home is three stories tall, so we have a lot of wall space along our staircases.
When you enter the house you see our photo collage wall. This wall has pictures from our wedding, honeymoon, childhood, and parent's weddings.
You'll see that I love decorating with photos. I think it's genetic. If you think I'm bad, you should see my parents and grandma's houses!
On the next set of stairs near the living room, we have these beautiful pictures of Huntington Beach that were taken by a local artist.
On the final set of stairs, I have two more photo collages of our USC days.
I recently went to my parents house and cleaned out my old room there (it only took me 11 years to let them have "my" room back). In that room were SIX photo collages from college and high school. Holy photo overkill Batman. So, I narrowed down my favorite pictures and consolidated the college ones into just these two frames. I just love looking at them. Such fun memories!
On the final part of the stairs is this nook/landing. I put the "Keep Calm" poster there, even though I want to replace it since that trend is a little overplayed. Good pop of color for now.
Also, I wanted to share the "half-bathroom" that is located on the second floor.
I made this the "beach" themed bathroom and added our wedding shadowbox in there. The Mr. and I bought that fun hutch at Ikea on sale for $30. It looks great and added some much-needed storage space.
Finally, here is our garage!
I LOVE having a garage! You can see it's still a work in progress, but we've at least got pretty much everything off the ground/boxes and organized onto shelves. Now I just need to pretty them up a bit. Any tips?
These shelves are from Ikea and were very affordable and functional. Bikes and surfboards are also up on racks (not pictured).
Next, I'll share our Office/Guest Room. I was going to share that next but my pictures of it turned out to be total crap. So I need to retake them. So that will be the final stop on the tour.
