House Tour

January 2, 2015

I’m excited to do a full house tour when I’m finished decorating. This is all so new for me, and it’s an exciting project for me to dive into. I love any opportunity to be creative. I plan to document and share the process of decorating and maintaing a home, both on my website and YouTube channel.

One of the reasons we chose this home was the Kitchen. My husband Byron needed the perfect backdrop with natural lighting to achieve the look he prefers for his cooking videos, website, and other food styling projects. We knew instantly that this was the kitchen!


The master bathroom was such a clean and bright space. I love how open and bright it feels and looks.


In the house, there are two fire places, and a fire pit outside. We knew we loved this home for the purpose of entertaining. We’ve been married for 8 years in June, and ALWAYS dreamt of the opportunity to entertain with friends and family. Byron worked in the hospitality industry for over 10 years, and it’s really a passion and gift of his to be hospitable.


I think one of the best things about this home is the backyard. It over looks a beautiful lake.  This makes the outdoor experience really magical, and we loved the idea again of entertaining with friends and family outdoors with beautiful and relaxing view.


Wherever I live, I want my home to feel zen and peaceful. I want my guests to feel comfortable— like they are on vacation, and I want to enjoy their company while we enjoy wonderful food and good times. Excited to share this journey with you.

hope you enjoyed this post,

xo, Rachel

    I absolutely LOVED the video! I may go and watch it again haha. My favourite videos to watch on youtube and the main reason I discovered the beauty world too was through room tours and house tours. Love decorating and design so I´m very excited to watch your progress and that you will document it :). Your home is beautiful, and that lakeview is one of the reasons I want to one day move to California.
