Welcome to our home! I am so glad you have come in to learn more about Two Story Tudor. We are about home, order and celebrations. Because it is FUN, let’s start with gatherings…
Parties & Gatherings
A party, a coffee, a dinner, a meeting, a retreat, a lunch, a wedding, or a fireside book club, these are all gatherings. Celebrations bring people together, whether it is celebrating a close friendship with a one on one cup of coffee, the birth of a baby or a marriage of 50 years… these are moments we share with others that make up our lives.
Design & Decor
A blooming flower, a messy children’s room, a shelf of seashells from your last beach vacation, a beat-up door-jam that measures the heights of generations, the warm leather of a cozy couch, a fresh coat of paint that brings new life to an old table, and the thoughtfully set table are all design. Home decor is the backdrop of our lives but it does more than simply sit there. So home decor frames, gives perspective and brings stories to life in a way that makes a difference.
Organization & Life Order
A to-do list, a couple with roles shared and divided, a plan of attack, an intentional move, a well stocked and sorted pantry, a career choice, a team working towards a shared goal, a seasonal routine, an alphabetized collection, a growth pattern, a day to rest and recover, a grouping of like objects, an extra-effort to push through and a time to mourn are all life order. Order is how we do what we “do” with both the stuff and the time because it can either enhance our gatherings (and appreciation of beauty) or majorly distract from…therefore it is a great detail to honor.
About Jen from Two Story Tudor
I’m a wife, mom of 3, artist, daughter, “housewife”, volunteer, designer, friend, and I strive to live it all out as a faithful follower of Christ. My mission is to create and appreciate beauty and order. I reside and find joy with my family, of course, in a two story tudor.
I daily create our home based on who we are as a family and who we want to be together. When we bought our two story Tudor I had a big goal in mind. My husband has his own business and he works really hard. I just really want our home to be a refuge for him to “retreat home” to after a busy stressful and physically exhausting day. Our home is far from being perfect, it is warm, historic, cozy, real, functional and relaxing. How do you describe your home?
I am very drawn to functional beauty and having routines and practices that work. As a trained life coach, I have “life coached” myself for years. I aspire to have a home that allows efficient daily doing while being an authentic backdrop to our lives as well.
And last but not least, I enjoy celebrating big! I have grown to love to invite others over and share good times. Themes and being clever with them is fun for me. I do hope you will join in the design fun with me along the way!
