WELCOME TO OUR NEW HOME! So many of you requested a house tour, and when we asked whether you wanted one before we finished painting and moving furniture or after, a ton of you indicated you wanted both ‘BEFORE’ and ‘AFTER’ house tour videos.. so how could we resist? ^^

This house is located in Rochester, NY and was built in 1930. Richard purchased it in 2003, and lived in it until 2008 when we moved back to South Korea. While living in Korea he rented it, and when we decided to move back to the U.S. it was a logical place to start living again. We are now in the process of making it our own.

If you have any suggestions at all for any of the rooms by all means share them in the comments below, or on any of our social medias! We love hearing your thoughts about paint colors, design ideas or anything that you’d like to share. It’s gonna be a long road of preparing the house to live in, but it’s a process we are both really looking forward to.

Thanks so much for your support everyone! :)

    Steph, I’ve read that a kitchen is supposed to be yellow, so maybe a light yellow on the walls? Ours was built in 1958 and the yellow looks nice, which would look perfect with white counter tops and cabinets. Maybe in the summer it can be your project (Richard’s and yours) to paint them white?

      I’m actually thinking about using Hallyu Back yellow as a key accent for our dining room so I’m sure it will be spread throughout the house a bit!

    What a great house, you guyz! A lot of nice features and so much room! I like the MoonGlow paint you picked out and I have to agree with another commenter abt having yellow on the walls in the kitchen; but that’s my own preference :) Thanks so much for inviting us into your home!
