hello thanks for stopping by

I’m Karisa. I live in Chelan, Washington with my husband Michael {Mr. G}, our son, Reuben, our daughter, Ava, and our black-tri Aussie, Moose.

We are do-it-yourself enthusiasts. I’m the dreamer, he’s the strategist, and teamed up we get it done. Petite Modern Life came to be in January 2014 when we purchased our first home. The many adventures of remodeling and decorating were documented here before we sold it in July of 2015. In October of 2015 we bought our second house not too far away and have made it a home as we grew our family with little Reuben Cash.

We sold the builder house in 2017, had baby number 2, and moved to Lake Chelan in 2018. We’re currently designing our modern farmhouse that we’ll build on our property sometime in 2019!

I’ve developed a passion for interior design, photography, and graphic design over the years. It fuels my creative brain and keeps me stretching my boundaries.

Born and raised in the Pacific North West, I’m inspired by the mountains, lakes, rivers, ocean, trees, rain (within reason…), and sun (always!): every sight & season has its own flavor & tune. It inspires  in me activity, coziness, and sprees of creativity. You can expect to find some of our PNW sights and loves throughout this space. I’m also rather obsessed with white paint, natural light, mid century modern furniturehomemade pizza, and a glass of red wine.
