Yep, we're (belatedly) celebrating our one year blogiversary.
A lot has changed in the months since I entered the real, post-graduation world and purchased my first home. There's been ups, downs, laughter, sorrow, excitement, worry. We've run the whole emotional gamut.
While there's still much to do, I think that it's time to sit back and enjoy everything that our hard work has accomplished. So here's a few comparison shots. The first set (top, if you couldn't tell) was taken a couple months after our move-in, so you can see a bit of Mid-Mod starting to creep in. The next was shot a few weeks ago. Just look how much has changed!
I also want to thank everyone for their readership and friendship. We've met quite a few interesting, creative, and helpful people over this last year and it's been an amazing experience.
The family resemblance certainly is strong. I'm not sure who runs this booth, but I did buy the desk off a Mid-Mod collector. Perhaps this is her setup and the desk in question is the other half of the very same set!
For sure, it's an exciting mystery, but the price and scale of the piece means that these two will likely continue on their separate paths. Maybe one day the stars will align and they'll chance upon each other again.
However, one mystery is solved. The desk, unlike my credenza, sported a label. It's from the Castilian line by the Alma Desk Company.
