light lab : the final reveal!

Well, well, well.. today is the day.

We finally get to share the finished space we started at the beginning of the year, Light Lab! (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out the intro post here.)

The full tour was published on Design*Sponge last week (here), but we wanted to let you guys in on a few other elements, too, like this timelapse from the very start of the demolition to the final kitchen-install and tiling jobs. Check it out. Really. I mean it.

So, now that you know the full breadth of the task we took on, we give you… the finished space…

Our beloved friend/designer, Sarah Sherman Samuel, created these before/after images and shared them on her own blog. They took my breath away! Be sure to check out her own post here to see even more images of the space and to hear more on her designing process.

If you want to read more about our WHY and also our vision for Light Lab now that it’s complete, don’t forget to check out the interview on Design*Sponge!

Thanks so much for following along with our journey and for celebrating the finished result with us! xo
