Inviting living room with blush decor on Thou Swell @thouswellblog

Although I never officially named my mom’s house as a project on the blog, it has been a canvas for my decorating projects ever since starting my blog in 2013! It kind of blows my mind – over five years and 700 blog posts later, I can finally give you a complete tour of the home after years of redecorating, revising, and tweaking the rooms inside. Now, we’re completely moved out of Cochise and into Dove Hill! As a rental house, there was only so much we could change, but it provided me with the space to explore and experiment as I styled and decorated for my blog projects. I am so thrilled to share that the final home tour is featured on Glitter Guide, but I wanted to share some exclusive before pictures here to give you a sense of where it all started…

If you’ve been around for a while, you might remember the first time I redesigned the living room (and when I gave it a refresh), or when I gave my bedroom its first makeover. There are also so many posts that were styled in rooms where I just moved around the furniture to give myself a blank wall or area to style – like when I shared this TV vignette.

I’m so grateful for all the projects I was able to complete on Cochise Drive and also thankful for your support as I shared them here and on my social media channels!
