steam punk industrial midcentury modern via seejaneblogFriends!!! For those of you who might be new to SeeJaneBlog – our family resided in Utah for fifteen years from 1996-2011, then we moved to Boston, Massachusetts for two years in 2011-2013. Then returned to Utah in July of 1013… Nineteen months ago. After nonstop projects during this time, and more projects currently underway I am ready to start a tour around our home! I plan on sharing our home in sections – starting with the entry and living room.

First of all, this home is fairly unique and came to be ours in a unique way too. Our last Utah home is only ten houses away down the road from where we now live.


valentines day in our home

February 15, 2015

minimalist valentines day home decor via seejaneblogAs each holiday approaches I find myself craving more and more simple traditions. Less decorations, less focus on what we should buy for people and an increased focus on the time we have with those we love. In the past few years I’ve had numerous conversations with friends about this – tell me what you think…

minimalist valentines home decor via seejaneblogIn my twenties, after getting married and starting a family, I had this inner urge to consume STUFF. Whether it was furnishings for my home, decorations for holidays, kids toys and gadgets… I collected and purchased stuff like Gus from Cinderella collected cheese. I couldn’t wrap my arms around the items I was bringing home. I was prone to overspend with anything I could easily convince myself I needed.


friends, i have a real valentines date tomorrow night. {!!!!!!!!!} i don’t think my husband has been in town for valentines day in over a decade. and technically, he won’t be here this year either, he goes out of town early that morning. but. we have a real date scheduled for valentines eve… at a swanky restaurant, with friends! and i plan on wearing heels. this is big time. do you have plans?

holiday home tour

December 7, 2012

we decked the halls! keeping with my thanksgiving/winter mood, i wanted everything cozy mixed with some festive-holiday cheer, if you are still in the midst of decorating your homes, here are are six tips…

tip #1: if you don’t have a chandelier, pot rack, or stairwell to hang decorations on – use a small rope or twine, attach to the corners of your window moldings with a tiny tiny nail, and hang items on the rope. you can also hang the rope/twine across a wall with the same philosophy. this works great for stringing stockings, wreaths, pomanders, or any christmas ornament that you can attach the ornament with ribbon or string – even a traditional hook!


home tour

December 4, 2012

i’ve learned in the past sixteen months since we started our boston-adventure that i look forward to moving. new spaces excite me, and i welcome the change. i am addicted to de-cluttering. the less we own, the more simple a room is, the better. just like the excitement that comes with the changing of seasons. i like new walls, new paint, new rooms, and even new neighbors! {not to offend my utah neighbors, we relish the idea of going back to our exact neighborhood if possible one day!!!} i just enjoy meeting new people.

i’ve been giving you little peeks of our home through the blog and instagram, but now that we’ve been in our second boston home for five months,
