Why did you start the Homestyle blog?

I wanted to personally document all of the changes we're making to the house and what we're learning (especially as millennials in the challenging Los Angeles housing market). After a lot of our friends asked about the process, I decided to take what I do best and turn it into a source for inspiration and tips.
