Our New Place

We’re finally starting to settle into our colorful new place in East Lansing, Michigan. As a photographer, I’m thrilled to be living in a home with such beautiful natural light in every room.

Our move was surprisingly smooth, thanks to help from my Dad, my sister, Adriane, and my brother-in-law, Christopher. I can’t imagine how we would have made another winter move without their help.

We’ll start with the kitchen—an important part of our lives. Jeff actually put the microwave up in the crawl space in the loft to see if we could get by without it. That touch of extra effort definitely makes me appreciate the food I’m eating.

Romulus loves being king of the castle and staring out on his kingdom. His kingdom clearly still needs a lot of photos to fill the blank walls (still a work in progress).

The loft makes for cozy reading in the sunlight on weekend mornings. It has already become our little escape.

Heading back downstairs to the bedroom.

And finally, the bathroom, complete with a retro radio.


  1. Absolutely breathtaking, Allie. It looks like the perfect space for you guys. Did it come painted those colors? They’re stunning!

  2. Thanks, all! 🙂

    Renee – we’re renting from an art professor, so it came with lots of color and fun details throughout.

    I can’t wait to finish putting photos on the wall!

  3. Looks so slick & stylish! If designing ever becomes a career venture, let me be your first client. Your touch would do wonders on my new apt! Big fan of your new space you guys!

  4. Wow your place is amazing. I love the colored walls and how you set it up. I’m also insanely jealous of the amount of space you have too 🙂

  5. It’s definitely nice to have a little breathing room in this place. I felt like every inch of our last place was being used.

  6. Congrats, it’s gorgeous! We’ve also been without a microwave since we moved a month ago. I actually went a year with out it (with a couple of exceptions) in Boulder, and you’re right – it makes you pay attention to what and how you’re eating. I haven’t missed it at ALL. Congrats on the move!
