Industrial Moody Lake House Update

I know this blog has been anxiously awaited by a lot of you, so let’s get right to it! This home was incredibly fun to have as our season finale. Believe it or not, it was the last home we transformed so we knew we wanted to go all out and do something a little […]

Fresh Paint Colors for Spring

Spring is in the air, and it seems like most of us are taking this time in quarantine to clean up around the house and freshen up our spaces to make them feel new. I was recently inspired by a new color palette released by West Elm x Sherwin Williams, it has a beautiful mix […]

Better than New Rustic Comfort Reno

Here we are, Episode TEN—that means we are just one week away from the season 1 finale of Unsellable Houses! What fun it’s been re-watching the last year unfold on TV. With this episode, we hit a couple challenges due to snowy weather…as you would expect in mid-December—well, sort of! Snow this heavy is not […]

Present-day Modern Transformation

For this episode, we ventured into our first split-level we are doing for the show. The most challenging part about a split-level entry home is that most buyers will write off these homes before ever seeing them. They assume the layout isn’t what they are looking for and move on. Fair enough!  We knew going […]

Getting Creative with Kids while in Quarantine

It has been a matter of days since my family and I have started “socially distancing” ourselves and my 3 boys, and I too, are starting to get a little stir crazy. We’ve pulled out all the stops and are doing our best to be creative with how we are keeping ourselves busy. We’ve completed […]

Working with Family

Working with family is a worthwhile experience that will stretch your boundaries and challenge your character on the daily. Lyndsay and I know this from years of experience and tons of trial and error. Working with my sister has brought out the best and the worst in me at times, and we know EXACTLY how […]

Craftsman Style Rambler Reno

Episode 8! Wow this transformation was so much fun. I’m sure you will hear me say that about all these houses because that is just flat out the truth! For this home, the young family we were working with had outgrown the space and needed a home that they could grow into. They tried selling […]

Scandinavian Starter Home

Episode 6 has officially aired and I couldn’t be more excited to share the details with you! This home was one of my favorite renovations that we did this season. We called it “Scandinavian Minimalist” for its relaxed European charm mixed with its overall spacious and minimal feel. One of the most unique features about […]

My Favorite Greys by Lyndsay Lamb

We all know the struggle that is finding the right paint color. It can very quickly become a thief of time, and dare I say it; JOY! I spent months over the course of season one of Unsellable Houses working with a variety of different greys for each house, so I know from experience—all greys […]

Being a Kick-ass Working Mother

I’m not your “typical” blogger. As a matter of fact, this is the first blog I have ever written!  Yay yay yay, clap clap clap…yeah, we’ll see if they let me back on here for the next one. I get asked pretty frequently about how I juggle being “a good mom” (whatever that means) and […]
