Outfit: The Gatehouse In Spring



It was a little over a year ago when Thomas decided to enquire about the sweet gatehouse with the yellow door. I was ambivalent about the idea of the little house being our future home together; the outside was quite charming, the location was nice, but the size was concerning. Moving in would mean going from a large rambling house in Pennslyvania (with housemates!) to a literal tiny house. But now I've lived here for nearly nine months and have no complaints. We've really made this house our home and are always happy to return to it at the end of the day. In winter it was always warm and cozy. Now in spring with our garden starting to bloom it grows a little more cheerful and inviting each day. I look forward to many more years (fingers crossed!) under our tiny roof enjoying this quirky home--and matching the front door! It's pure luck that we ended up with a house with a yellow door, but after I put together this outfit I couldn't resist snapping a few pictures just outside the front door. Even the daffodils in our garden were kind enough to color-coordinate to my look!

The house is lovely and I am glad you are happy there. I think it's nice having a smaller place-less cleaning!

Your gatehouse is the cutest, coolest house I've ever seen. It definitely seems worth it to give up the space. Plus that door is awesome! Love the pop of yellow throughout your outfit and surroundings, so perfect for spring!

@bohémienne-to-be and @אביטל בן ברוך no house tour yet and no date set on one. I live a pretty public life on the Internet sharing my outfits and stuff so much, so I think it's important to have a few things that are private and right now we're keeping our home one of those. It's also my home with Thomas, not my home by myself, so it's quite different than doing a room tour like I did in the past when I lived on my own.

Ah! I see you've already answered the question of a home tour. To my dismay! Where's my cry face emoji? Oh. I seriously ADORE your home. So is it at the end of a bigger estate? Like the gatehouse in Masfield Park? That sort of thing? Sheesh. I thought my house was magical!

Ever since you first posted a photo of your gatehouse, I have been in love with it - I do have a thing about tiny little cottages. I think it's the most charming, delightful abode I have ever seen!!
