Anne, Aaron, and their daughter, Iris, share their Minneapolis Cape Cod-style home with their dog, Jasper, and cat, Boxcar. The family's two-bedroom, two-bathroom home is compact but nicely sized, and they've lived there for just over five years.
Anne reports, "We've updated the house quite a bit. We installed a new boiler and water heater, replaced some of the old plumbing, repainted the outside and remodeled the kitchen. The kitchen was obviously the biggest project. I love the results, but it was so much work (and money!). I really learned a lot though."
When asked about their decorating style, Anne notes, "I don't know that I'd really say we have a distinct decorating style. We like mid-century stuff quite a bit and tend to shy away from ornate/fussy furniture. I love thrifting and try to make sure every room is a good balance of new and old stuff. With a toddler in the house, there are toys everywhere now, so dealing with that is a challenge!" I really admire a family that's able to balance their sense of style with a comfortable, functional, and kid-friendly home. See how Anne and Aaron achieve this balance in the slideshow!
