WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! After 5 apartments in 5 years, Ryan and I finally found the perfect home for our little family. A mint green bungalow in Southern California, full of midcentury modern goodness and tropical vibes. We are so excited to make it our own and can’t wait to bring you along for the ride. I’ll be sharing bits and pieces of all the love we put into this place, from vintage finds to bathroom renos, on the blog and at @bungalito on Instagram.
We had been casually house hunting for about a year before even deciding which neighborhood would be right for us. I was always on Trulia and Redfin favoriting houses that were cute but nothing really jumped out at me. Until late one night at the end of April 2017, when I came across this adorable 3-bedroom bungalow that sounded pretty perfect on paper. I sent it to Ryan and scheduled a private tour. It turned out to be even better in person, but we had plans to go out of town that weekend so we just let it go and enjoyed our getaway. A week later we went to an open house at the same cute bungalow (then went back again the next day, ha!). We kept finding more reasons to love it so we put in an offer that night. Things moved pretty quickly from that point and everything just seemed to fall into place. It almost felt too good to be true, but here we are 7 months in, and so far, so good.
Over the next few weeks I want to share a home tour, room by room, where I’ll go over all the plans I have for each space. Some walls just need a fresh coat of paint, while others need to be knocked out, but we’ll get to all that eventually. Stay tuned! xo
