About Jamie

Hi, my name is Jamie Erfle and I am obsessed with houses. (So much so that I am now a licensed Real Estate Agent for the Philly suburbs! www.jamieerfle.com ) But its not just the homes themselves that I am obsessed with… it’s all of the fun and happy things happening inside… like cooking meals, time spent with family, getting dressed, cleaning, decorating, etc. Pretty much anything geared toward the home that is organic, all natural and “green” gets me especially excited!

When I’m not working you can usually find me in an exercise class or out running. I recently completed my first marathon (in between kids #3 and #4) and plan to run another! I love to challenge myself both professionally and personally and to keep learning and growing.

Friday’s Favorite Bathroom

I love the idea of putting a bathroom like this into a mudroom.  This bathroom can handle washing the dogs, kids and family gardener!  Notice the mix-match of finishes and how the touches of brown and gold in the room add the perfect amount of warmth. Eclectic Bathroom
