We call it the hogan at Rozzie. You may remember when I announced the most important project in my life to date: home ownership.

Since my purchase, I’ve done quite a few things to get settled; a whole bunch of antiquing, placement and replacement of my many knick knacks, oh, and moved in my guy, who was living 3,000 miles away.

I’m really happy with where we are at right now. Minus an outdoor couch delivery for our back porch tomorrow, most things are settled. There’s still more art to hang on the wall, and eventually a new couch and another chair in our living room, but finally, at last, it really feels like home.

I love that I’ve been patient and found the right things–almost nothing in the house was purchased new. Instead, I favored brilliant mid century modern antique finds that maybe needed a little tlc and family pieces passed down.

What do you think? Worth much of the waiting? See more snaps from my home here.


Gifted to me by a former student; adding to my cactus and succulent collection, and so happy to do so. I can’t live without plants, and I appreciate low maintenance ones.

My mum gifted me this amazing Pendleton San Miguel bedspread and matching pillow shams for my birthday this past weekend. Isn’t it a beauty? I love that, like all Pendleton blankets, it is reversible, and can change the look and feel of the bedroom with a flip.

I’m already looking toward my winter bedding, thanks to Boston’s swift drop in temperature this week.

Trying to declutter and reorganize my life. It starts in the living room, and it feels really…good. Decorating tips, anyone? Do I even have a style? I’d like one.
