I'm sure you've heard the saying before "Home is Where Your Story Begins". And while I believe there ... Read More about Home is Where Your Story Begins
Hello Friends! I was joking with a friend yesterday, and made the comment “One more week and we’ve made to March!”. Here in New England our gray winter days can sometimes feel like the last forever, and this year I have found myself craving all things spring earlier and earlier. I’m joining some friends today as we share a little bit of spring around our homes, and I thought I would share how I’m spreading some spring in the entryway.
Over the next month or so I’m in the process of updating all the sources and Main home tour for the blog. It’s been seriously neglected, and I’m embarrassed to say that the last “official” Home Tour I have on the blog is from 2015! Yikes!! So I’ve been working on categories, and this is the next step. One of the most frequent inquiries I get is about the paint colors in our home. I will be creating a separate page just for the paint colors in our home, and be sure to tell you once it’s up and where it is located, but in the meantime I wanted to give you an updated post of paint colors around our home, for anyone that has been curious.
While I don’t have any gift ideas or Valentine’s day crafts to share with you, I did want to take a moment and leave you this note. A thank you note of sorts if you will.
Hello Friends!! I don’t know about you, but after the house has been cleaned, and organized and everything put back in its rightful place, sometimes during this time of year, these long winter days can feel relentless. Well at least here in New England. Instead of wishing these months away, I tend to gravitate towards doing a project. It doesn’t have to be a big project, sometimes just a simple DIY to help the days pass and get out some of that creative energy from being cooped up inside does the trick. So I’ve gone through past post, and rounded top 5 DIY’s to help us get through these long winter days, just in case you happen to be craving something to do!
Hello friends!! Happy Friday! I can’t believe the weekend is already here. I’ve been doing some work behind the scenes here on the blog, and I wanted to share with you, so it hopefully makes things a little easier to find. One of my biggest goals when I switched over to this new blog design was to make things easier to find. Photos, posts, categories – all of it more user friendly. Part of this new design has allowed me to be more specific with how I am able to display older posts, so I have created some new categories here on the blog, in hopes that it will make things easier for you, my beloved readers!
Our dining room has taken on many looks over the past 8 years since we’ve lived in this house. I’ve shared the progression our dining room took, showing where we started, and how I got it to the space you see today. You can read all about it HERE. Then this past fall I did something I had been pining to do for over a year, and that was to paint it a new darker color for the first time since I originally painted it Wood Smoke when we moved in. It’s been about 5 months, and I’m still loving the new color I chose – Peppercorn by Sherwin Williams. I took some photos the other week, mostly because the only photos I really had with the new color on the walls, our dining room was decorated for a specific seasonal home tour. So to start the year off with a fresh look, here is our dining room for 2019.
This year I’ve really been embracing the “fresh start” mentality that comes with the new year. I’ve been cleaning out closets and drawers. And one of those places I’ve ignored for far too long is the buffet in our dining room. So today I’m sharing some simple things I did to organize the buffet and made it SO much more efficient.
Hello Friends, and happy Wednesday!! I’m so excited because today our home is being featured on the Everygirl! If you aren’t sure what the Everygirl is, it is a website created by two women for just that – the every girl. They share the most amazing content, covering just about every topic – relationships, life, fashion, home decor, they even branched out into motherhood with the Everymom, and today they are sharing my home tour along with an interview they did of me!
One of the most common issues I hear from people regarding their space, is that it’s lacking something, and they just can’t put their finger on it. They usually try to define the lack by using words like flat or blah. The room has no character, or it feels uninviting! While I don’t consider myself a decorating genius, I do have a few go-to’s when it comes to decorating. So today I’m sharing with you my go-to decorating advice. These are the top 5 things I look for in a room.
