kitchen follow-ups

Thank you for all of the nice comments on our kitchen. I know I’ve shown it a million times, but I realized that my old post from my old blog didn’t transfer the photos when we moved to this new site, so I figured I… Continue Reading…kitchen follow-ups

our kitchen

As I mentioned last week, we remodeled our kitchen just a year or two after we moved into our house. It was a fine kitchen and believe me, we were thrilled to have such a luxurious place to cook and eat coming from our previous… Continue Reading…our kitchen

our entry

Well, hello. Welcome to our home.

This is what you see when you walk in the front door:

A jute rug from IKEA, an old cane back chair that desperately needs to be reupholstered and a large hanging window.

The curtains are from IKEA {of course – I think ALL of my curtains are from there} and hung from clips. We love having so many windows at the entry, but in the evenings it is nice to close the curtains for privacy {and it keeps 8pm solicitors from knocking on the door!}.

I like having a dresser right inside the front door. Our hats, gloves, scarves are stored in the drawers. It is an old piece with authentically chippy paint and I just don’t think I’ll ever be able to paint over it.  The mirror was a funky oak piece {probably from the 70’s} found at Goodwill and then painted Rushing River by Sherwin Williams {the same color as Audrey’s bed}.  It is kind of ugly, in a pretty way.

Looking through the window that separates the entry from the dining room.

The lamp is from Walmart and then I recovered the lampshade using this Waverly fabric.

I made a new print for the entry in honor of the season.

Can you tell I like monograms? I really do.

And these vintage word cards make me happy.

Looking from the entry into my office {and a little sneak peek at the changes in there – I know, I just finished the office and I’ve already rearranged it : welcome to my life}.

Ryan bought me this photo carousel {from Potterybarn} a few years ago and it works perfectly for holding stationery. Kind of random that we have a display of notecards in our entryway.

Some updates I’d like to do someday:

the kitchen {Autumn}

It was time to reorganize the kitchen shelves and pull out some Autumn accents. I feel like I’m a little behind fluffing my house for the season {I usually do this September 1st due to my absolute love of fall} but it is nice to… Continue Reading…the kitchen {Autumn}

my office

When you walk in the front of our home, to the right is this room.  It started as my office, then we switched it to be Ryan’s office, then a sitting room and now back to my office {can you tell we’re a little fickle… Continue Reading…my office

the boys’ room

Have you noticed that new category up there called ‘our house’? Don’t click on it, because there is nothing there. But I’m working on it. And by working on it, I mean cleaning one room of the house at a time, while the kids destroy… Continue Reading…the boys’ room

the dining room

The first room you see when you walk in our front door is the dining room. While we don’t use it often, it is such a luxury to have when we’re hosting a big party or holiday meal {in fact, my mom got engaged around… Continue Reading…the dining room

office primping

We are notorious for moving things around in our house. Even switching entire rooms around. Like this room in the front of our home. When we first moved in, it was my office. Then it became my husband’s when we built out an office for… Continue Reading…office primping
