All the kitchen selections have officially been decided and it is going to be GOOD! I have been studying kitchens for years. Everything from what the cabinet faces look like, how thick the counters are, the colors of the cabinets, wood vs painted, how to make it classic but not dated, the hardware…everything! It was […]

Everything We’ve Picked Out For the GBOGH Kitchen

kitchen ideas

I am so close to getting all the “big” stuff ordered for the GBOGH house and one of the last things I need to figure out is the wallpaper selections. I know, I know…wallpaper when you’re selling the house?! Maybe it’s not the most practical thing to do but I am really trying to make […]

A (BIG) Look At The GBOGH House Renovation Progress

One of my goals of 2022 is to get WAY better at documenting the GBOGH house renovation. I story it occasionally, but I feel like I am majorly missing out on going into more detail on it on BSL! I mean, that is the whole point of this project! ? The last blog post I did […]

A Complete Tour of the GBOGH House

BSL had a big week last week…we bought a house!!! We’ve named this house “Go Big or Go Home”. Fitting, right?! This has been a dream of mine from the very beginning of starting this website. I always knew that the end goal of BSL was to become a design resource for people moving into dorm […]
