Our Everyday, Ordinary, No Makeup Home Tour

I’ve been wanting to share a home tour of what our home usually looks like. After reading Kyla’s post I knew it was time to share here on my blog. I love a clean home but in reality, the pillows are flat, books are strewn, groceries are on the counter and random chairs are everywhere.

Since I always post photos of our home right after I clean, here is what it looks like on the “normal” days.

 In our living room take note of the stuffing from that elephant that ZaZa destroyed. There are usually dishes left over from having friends over and extra chairs in random places. I haven’t changed the “Happy Thanksgiving” message board and the pillows are regularly squished flat.

 More stuffing from that stuffed elephant (RIP), lots of cords and furniture out of place. See that cactus? It was previously in another planter and died after neglect and no sunlight, that is my attempt at salvaging half of it.

Does anyone else’s dining table become the dropping place for mail, bags and everything else? Dishes are also taking over because I believe I broke our dishwasher.

 My studio is especially full during the holiday season. I try to clean it before the weekend comes but right now the floor is covered in leather scraps. I’ve yet to put away the boxes for the holiday decor.

 I doubt you have ever seen this room, it is Jordan’s music studio. It is also where we store all our random things that won’t fit in a closet and hang our clothes to dry (I know, very random). One day it will get the love and attention it deserves!

I’ll leave you with a photo of our vanity covered in stuff. Usually we keep it pretty clean but we haven’t readjusted from coming home from vacation.

The truth is, I love a clean home that is styled and untouched. But the I also love living in our home. I love having a place where friends can come and plop down on the couch without worrying if they’ll ruin something. I love our space even when it is disheveled because it reminds me of the people that come in and out of here. Don’t let the pretty photos fool you, there can be beauty in the ordinary as well.

Thanks Kyla for the extra inspiration to share my own no makeup home tour.
