– where a love for design, tidying, creativity and creating community thrives –
all with a good measure of whimsy and joy
Hello, I’m Amber. Welcome to Bungalow35!
First, a little bit about the namesake… Built in 1935, my historic bungalow has weathered many seasons and has a good story or two to tell. She is welcoming, cozy, charming and filled with light. Situated in the Coronado Historic Neighborhood, Bungalow35 is near downtown Phoenix in the heart of the Valley of the Sun.
Bungalow35 is my home-base for life, laughter, family, friends and business. It serves as my inspiration for design, tidying, creativity and creating community. I hope The Tidy Bungalow (and Zoe!) spark joy, celebrate whimsy and make you feel #soulgood.
I spent my adult years organizing, cleaning and purging each place I called home. It was a never-ending cycle and I was faced with a never-ending to-do list. Fortunately, I stumbled across The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, a book about finding joy in what I already had, keeping what I treasured and creating the home of my dreams.
So, I set out to prove it was possible to create a tidy bungalow by following the “KonMari” method. Her philosophy works exceptionally well. Now my home is relaxing yet provides energy. It is calm and creative, full yet tidy, joyful and full of whimsy. It truly is The Tidy Bungalow. Do you want your home – your entire home – to spark joy? You don’t have to do it alone. Contact me. Let’s make it happen.
A bit more about this special place. Guests and travelers are welcome to stay in Zoe, the Airstream perched in the backyard by the pool. We’ve been lucky to host some wonderful guests these past 10 months and share the whimsy of the Airstream life and our sweet little neighborhood. Kids play, dogs walk their people, neighbors chat out front or stop by to pick up a book from our Little Free Library. Every day. And, I love it.
Whether you stop by for a quick minute or stay a while – online or IRL, for business or leisure – welcome to Bungalow35.
Amber & Kevin

Coronado is full of murals, so venture out!
Bungalow35 gets a lot of its magic from the surrounding neighborhood. We hope you enjoy exploring it as much as we do.
