    Good Morning Beth! We recently (April) downsized into a newly built 1800 sq ft ranch. The big 4000 sq ft home that we lived in for 19 years was sold to our daughter. We are both! I’ll be 60 in October ( hubby 61) and having the smaller house is just what we need at this stage. I loved (and obsessed over) every design decision. Taking my time with decorating though… I want it to feel just right.

  2. Sue Smith says:

    Terrific! It looks like the house has “good bones,” which helps a lot in decorating. Glad you’re enjoying your digs. And it looks like Oscar and Ollie approve.

    • beth djalali says:

      dang! i thought i had everything linked. the cutting board was purchased at Macy’s the brand is Catskill. hope this helps! xo

      • Laurie Brown says:

        Thank you. I just bought one. It’s just what I needed. Love your blog. I’ve bought many of the things you feature.

    How easy was it to remove the two cupboard doors? Did you have to cover holes and paint?

    • beth djalali says:

      it was very easy to remove the doors. you just have to patch the holes then paint. the hinges to our cupboard doors were on the inside of the frame so the holes left behind are not as visible as those on the outside. xo

    I finally retired in June and a week later hubs & I & our 16 year old cockapoo got in the car & drove west. New York to California in 5 days! Both of our kids are in CA so the decision was easy. Sold nearly everything; downsized to condo in golf resort community. Have not looked back! Thanks for all your inspirational ideas!

    • beth djalali says:

      that is a no-brainer! i’m certain you are enjoying living in close proximity to your kiddos. it sounds like the golf resort community was the perfect choice for you. xo

  9. Mary says:

    Beth, I’m so happy I came across your blog! I always look forward to your posts.
    I have the same curtains in my kitchen and love them.
    Really appreciate your fashion tips and hope to see more of your decorating style.

    • beth djalali says:

      then you know firsthand how cheerful this buffalo plaid curtain is! don’t you just love Ballards Design?! xo

      • Mary says:

        I got mine from Country Curtains a few years ago. They have since then gone out of business. They’re starting to show their age (much like myself) but it’s good to know they’re available at Ballards!

    What fun it must be to putter around that great, spacious kitchen of yours. Of course being the stylish couple that you are, you have incorporated such wonderful details into this lovely space.
