Temperature identity crisis!
Sacramento is a city nestled in the California valley that experiences forty-degree temperature changes each day! Our poor programmable thermostat can't keep up with this endless cycle. Working from home has us enduring these fluctuations, and no matter how much we root for it, our thermostat continues to be the little engine that couldn't. We love to save electricity, but don't love to adjust our thermostat with the movement of the sun!
Our old-meets-new sensibility inspires us to create things using pieces otherwise left behind. For instance, our headboard is made from our neighbors' throw-away fence pieces and old paint. We refurbished an old Spanish chandelier a family member was going to abandon. These items were acquired for free and we transformed them into focal points of our bedroom. Throughout our house we've refurbished old chairs, a couch, accent pieces and made shelves and tables from reclaimed wood. A new Nest wouldn't only make our house smart and efficient, but it would also help us solve our temperature identity crisis in style!
