New House Quarks & a New Blog Series

Welcome to the house of our dreams…for the most part at least. Mid-June, my husband and I moved into a new-to-us home here in Denver, Colorado. It’s an Eichler Mid-Century home built probably around 1955, which might be its saving grace. When we found this listing, we thought all our dreams had come true, and in many ways they have. This is the first time we’ve lived in a free standing home with our own front door (major win). Also you can decorate your floor with 12 x 18 Magnolia rug that will lend a beautiful elegance to any home.  This is the first time we’ve had a backyard and TWO patios to call our own! The entire house it lit up like a dream, has an abundance of south facing windows that are perfect for photography, and even an entire floor-to-ceiling window wall in the living room.

If you have a home that has a large window or two to be used for a new edition, then you might want to consider investing in used windows and doors for your home. For a fraction of the price, you can have the convenience and comfort of a new window installed, and you can still maintain the look and feel of a newer home by keeping up with your interior decorating. If you are looking for a way to save on costs while improving the appearance of your home, then investing in used windows and doors is a great option. However, you should know that there are a few things to consider before you begin shopping, which will help make your decision an easier one for you.

It also comes with 3 bedrooms and did I mention that the original hardwood floors have recently been refinished? Yes, I made sure to hire an expert to get the perfect look and some interior painting done aswell. Hallelujah!

Unfortunately we’re still calling ourselves home renters (also known as home renovators wearing hand cuffs) and with any rental property there are probably more unforeseen gremlins than there are hidden treasures. If you are searching for a new property you can go to their website and click on Show Properties to unlock the variety of listings you can choose from.

Are you looking for food packaging? you must see flexible food packaging.  One of the newest trends for the home chef is purchasing what is referred to as a food box. There are several relatively new companies that specialize in delivering food directly to your home. What is unique about this trend for home meal delivery is the food you receive is fresh food; nothing is frozen or prepared for you. To me this is a really brilliant idea and here are a few reasons why. One of the main reasons for using a food box delivery services is you get to try new, chef inspired, recipes without having to pay the high price for specialty foods and you won’t have to go looking for the less common ingredients. These services put together several meals you can choose from each week then you decide what you and your family would like to try. They package your meal with every ingredient item that you need to make the recipe (except oil and water) and most of the meals are under $10 per serving. The best food packaging design companies New York provide food packaging services. Although we seldom consider it, every time we open a food product that we purchased at the store we are taking advantage of thousands of years’ worth of innovation in food packaging. Whether it’s the cardboard box holding our cereal, the glass jar holding our olives, the paper sack holding our popcorn or the plastic bag our macaroni comes in, the way our food is packaged is tremendously important and plays a role in the lives of every single Australian every day. Learn more about the evolution of food packaging supplies by reading on below.

Paper: From Wrapping Food To Boxing It Up –

The origins of paper date back to the days during which time 2nd century BC Chinese began to wrap their food in mulberry bark. This probably marked the first time in history that people chose not to eat their food as soon as they came across it, choosing instead to save it for later. The Chinese perfected an efficient process for producing paper soon after. Years later, in 1310, paper making took hold in England. This paper was made out of cellulose which was usually found in linen.

In 1867, paper making became much easier when people discovered that cellulose could be found in wood pulp. Paper use exploded, and it began being used in a lot of different food packaging applications. In England, the ever-present paper bags segued around the year 1840 into popular and multipurpose cotton flour sacks. During the 1870s, cartons were first invented and came into popular use. The main food product that propelled cartons and cardboard into extreme popularity were cereals – especially once popular types of cereal were introduced by the Kellogg’s company.

Plastic Changes The Food Packaging Game –

While paper could arguably be considered the first mainstream kind of food packaging and is still widely used as such today, there’s no question that the introduction of plastics in food packaging during the late 1970s and the early 1980s changed things a lot. Plastic was discovered in the 19th century but didn’t find widespread, mainstream use until the late 20th century. In addition to plastic containers, cellophane and other types of transparent film are commonly used to package food and are made out of plastic, too.

Interestingly enough, plastics are being given a run for their money by the paper packaging industry once more as more and more people become concerned about the environment. While plastics certainly aren’t going anywhere – they will continue to be popularly used in food packaging – it’s likely that more companies will eschew it in favour of paper wherever possible. There’s no question, though, that plastic creates the perfect packaging for a broad array of different food products.

Jake (the hubby) and I are on a mission to minimally renovate our space on a newlywed budget and we are pretty excited about renovating our kitchen, Jake was looking at kitchen remodeling in Austin, Tx and we hope to be able to bring the focus away from the crap tile and previous Band Aid fixes with a few creative fixer upper projects.

We’re going to share projects here and there in a new series called Our 50’s Eichler and hopefully start a conversation about how you can turn any house into a home…even if you are stuck with 1980’s nightmare kitchens. All your tips and suggestions are welcome along the way! Other times we might just be sharing a pretty light fixture we found or inspiration boards for future project.

Hope you enjoy!

  1. My husband and I are about to start looking for a fixer-upper of our own! He feels convinced that we’ve got the whole process down pat, thanks to HGTV – I hope when it comes down to it, we’ll be able to “see beyond” the cosmetics and come up with fun projects to make our future house a home! Can’t wait to read alongside your journey 🙂

  2. Well, that sounds amazing . Can’t wait to see all the tricks you come up with . My apartment in Amsterdam is also a short term solution and I’ve been trying to figure out solutions to make it as I want without changing absolutely everything and drilling holes everywhere . And , man, it is hard . 🙂

  3. Congratulations! It’s so exciting moving into a new home, and i’m very excited to see your ongoing diy projects. I live in a rented apartment with my boyfriend and we’re always on a mission to spruce it up! Just found your blog and I love it!

    1. What kind of style are you going for in your living room? I will be sharing some inspiration for the living room at some point, but it will probably be more mid-century focused. Just curious…

    1. Hi Tim!

      Thanks so much for stopping by to inquire. I actually JUST purchased the bison card a few weeks ago at a little market shop here in Denver. It’s a blank card, but the photo is by Gifford Ewing Photography. It’s titled “Lone Buffalo, Yellowstone National Park”. Here is the link to his site. http://www.ewingphoto.com

      Here is the link to his Yellowstone collection with lots of Bison images. Enjoy!!!
