Home | New House

We have a lot going on, but I have been asked about our "new" home and thought I would drop by for an update.  We are moved in and it feels really good to have the busyness behind us.  We still have several things do to in the house to make it feel more my style, but just getting our stuff in place has helped a lot.

Those of you who have been with me for the past 5 years that I have been blogging have seen my style take a huge turn from warm, southwestern, and earth tones to a more cool, airy, simple aesthetic. This house has a bright (read yellow and blue) palette, and while I enjoy those colors in other homes, it is not a palette that I want to live in, day in and day out.  It's just like the "cabin" trend.  I love visiting cabins and the warmth that comes with the decor is lovely.  I just don't want that in my own home.

Since we are painting the main level (it was so, so dirty and I scrubbed to no avail.  it needs a coat of paint to clean the place up!) I decided to go ahead and put some nails to the walls and see where I liked things.  So, if you see decor off center, that is why.  I am just trying things out, so let me know what you like and what you would change!!!

IF you follow me on Instagram, then you've seen some of these already. Okay, here we go!

I will do a "before & after" post as we make progress through the house.  It is amazing how different decor alone can really change the look and feel of a home.  If you have any questions, leave a comment and I will try to reply sometime this year. lol :)
