A No Make-up Peek Inside Our House

Things are shaping up to be a busy year, and while I wouldn’t trade that for the world, it’s hard not to get overwhelmed sometimes. I’m at home with my 1 year old, Sylvia 3 days a week, and the other two days, I do Francois et Moi business. Sylvie will be off and grown in no time, so I’ve made the choice to do things this way.

On the days that I’m with Sylvia, I count on her naps to get a some work done (like I’m doing right now!). So I’m basically I’m flying between two demanding rolls, taking care of Sylvia and running my blogging business, and that really doesn’t leave much time during the week for keeping our house pristine. Ken and I share this role completely, so it mostly happens at the end of the day and on weekends.

Getting REAL with an everyday look inside our house--the non-styled version. A no make-up peek at the good, the bad, the messy, and the ugly.

Anywho! Kyla of House of Hipsters asked me to join in on her No-Makeup Home Tour again this year. (Go here for last year’s tour.) And more than ever I was up for it, because look, I post pretty pictures of my house and DIY projects, but those are often styled vignettes–MY HOUSE DOESN’T ALWAYS LOOK LIKE THAT. As I mentioned, we struggle with keeping things picked up as much if not more than the next family, so that’s what this post is all about, being open and honest with our perfectly imperfect house.

Getting REAL with an everyday look inside our house--the non-styled version. A no make-up peek at the good, the bad, the messy, and the ugly. I put Sylvia down for her morning nap last Friday, and walked around the house with the camera taking pics for this tour, so this is an actual freeze-frame of after a long week… Getting REAL with an everyday look inside our house--the non-styled version.

It’s half painted (Sigh). We had to order more paint, and now we just need to carve out some time to wrap things up back here.

I can’t say the dining room stays “clean”, but it certainly stays pretty picked up as it’s where we eat dinner. See those rogue crumbs? Life with a one-year-old!

Sylvie’s larger toys get corralled by the corner plant, which keep them out of the walkway, and the rest are stored in the TV cabinet. Oh the TV cabinet… since it’s right off the front entry, naturally, it collects stuff. Lots of stuff. Getting REAL with an everyday look inside our house--the non-styled version.

Thank you for stopping by to see my not-so-magazine-worthy house! Make sure to take the tour of the rest of fab bloggers on the IRL tour!

    Erin, your house couldn’t be ugly if it tried. Ha! Loved getting a glimpse into real life and the day-to-day! It’s absolutely gorgeous.

    Loved this insider peak into your gorge home! Also, I’m not kind of obsessed with your kitty cat 🙂

    Still looks pretty lovely to me! Man, that top of the fridge area is always tough for us too! Horizontal surfaces are just too tempting!

    Still looks better than mine on its best day 🙂 Can I ask where your glass front cabinet is in your dining room? It looks like a Hemnes and is the perfect size for what I’m looking for in my own dining room!
