We’re Moving!

We’re moving! As some of you have already guessed from my endless real estate stalking on Instagram, we’ve been in the market for a new home in Connecticut. I can finally say that we’ve found one!  Slowly telling our friends and family and now announcing it here is bitter sweet, I adore our home in Northern Westchester. Not only has it been a complete labor of love putting our own personal stamp on it these past fourteen years (we’ve done so much work) but it’s also the house where all three of our children took their first steps, so many truly wonderful memories…

Long story short, we’ve been quietly looking for a home in near by Connecticut that would make sense for our lifestyle (close to school and work). We looked and looked, and finally found a beautiful home minutes from everything we need.  I’m full of so many conflicting emotions, including the excitement of starting a new design project and sharing the process along the way.  But first, I want to properly say goodbye to our current home (we haven’t sold it yet so if you know someone looking-feel free to shoot me an email at thezhush@gmail.com, and I’ll put you in touch with our wonderful broker) There are still so many rooms that I haven’t gotten around to posting here…so for the next few weeks, be ready for a barrage of “goodbye house” posts!

PS: Last summer, when our house appeared in Family Circle Magazine!

  4. How exciting! And now your new home will hold the memories of your children getting dressed for their first Prom, Graduations, and more. And what fun you will have putting your personal (and beautiful) touch on the new home.

  6. We are on the same page right now! I'm feeling the exact same emotions…let me grab a tissue saying goodbye to the home I've loved. It has loved me right back, keeping me happy and giving me shelter and comfort. Still, looking forward to a new relationship with my new project. Rather, what will this new home teach me?
    Best of luck,
    Sharon

  9. What a beautiful home. Those peacocks and the hydrangea lined lane are stunning. I think it's always best to follow your heart and not trends! Take care.

  10. Congratulations on finding the new "perfect" home. Anytime you start to get bummed, just image how happy that just married couple, or newly grown family, will be when they see all the lovely work you did to that home! Good luck on your future endeavors and I can not wait to see how you make your new house a home.
