The time has come for me to pack up my beloved office and say my final goodbyes to James Street. It’s a brand new season and to celebrate moving on from James Street, I’m sharing today what I love most about this beautiful home.
WELCOME TO SEASON 5 | EPISODE 10
What I love (and will miss) about James Street
INTENTIONAL DESIGN AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL
I talk about the elements and design details that I’ll miss most and the things that really added to the way we lived and functioned as a family on a day-to-day basis. Often it’s the small things that make the biggest impact, and I talk about the intention behind some of the design aspects and why they worked so well for us.
IN THIS PODCAST WE ARE TALKING ABOUT
You really can’t go past great lighting design, and I share some of the specific aspects that made the home feel so elevated. I also talk about how joinery has come a long way and what I appreciated about the joinery at James Street, particularly in the family room. A specific mention also goes to my inbuilt furniture, including my amazing U-shaped couch. I will miss that couch!
Another aspect of James Street that really set the tone for the entire design is the terrazzo tile. It was expensive, but boy was it worth it. I talk about why a good flooring choice is such an important investment and why I’ll miss those tiles so much.
Good design incorporates aesthetic details but it’s also about functionality. I share how the James Street laundry and butlers pantry made our everyday life with six kids so much easier and why I’ll be missing those elements of the home.
One of the biggest elements of the James Street concept was the garden. I talk about the inspiration behind the garden and why I’m sure the next owner will love it just as much as I do.
We don’t always know where the next step in the journey will lead us, but as far as I’m concerned, home is where my family is. We bid James Street farewell, but it will always hold a special place in our hearts.
