Blog: The Brick House
Blogger: Morgan Satterfield (and ‘The Boy’)
What do you do for a living?
Designer, writer, photographer, stylist, snuggler, jack-of-all trades blogger.
What’s your blog all about?
The blog centers on the continued renovation of our current home. We bought a small mid-century brick house in a retirement town and are attempting to take it from half-way house to all-the-way awesome. With readers, I guess I hope to bring what I get from other blogs — namely ideas, a chuckle, and maybe a little bit of voyeurism.
Describe your home in 6 words or less.
What has been your fave post so far?
Probably my favorite post is always the one I just finished. I’m always happiest at the moment I post something — then I reread it later and cringe.
What is the ‘$100 rule’?
It’s a rule originally developed by a thrifty friend that I co-opted. It states: do not spend over $100 on any ONE item. You’d be surprised by how well you can stick to it, but of course there are exceptions. Sometimes I will sell a bunch of furniture to raise funds to buy something big like a sofa. Or I tend to trade and barter furniture with folks as well.
What has been your fave shopping find under $50?
Hard to choose — most everything great I find is under $50. Seriously… like, so many amazing things. I once picked up a mint condition vintage George Nelson bubble lamp for $6. That was pretty amazing.
If you could pick one celebrity (or writer or whomever) as the demographic for your blog, who would it be?
I just asked The Boy and he said Jeffery Lewis (???). I say Doctor Who. I guess neither makes much sense.
