Just Like Christmas!

After renting for the past two years where most of our artwork and furniture was in storage, I've felt like a kid on Christmas uncrating everything!  It's so exciting to see all of the pieces we've collected over the years again and although our new house is as vanilla as it gets - beige walls, beige floors, beige doors, beige cabinetry - it's already starting to feel like home with all of our furniture out and some of our artwork hung.

The Sitting Room - We still have to wrap up some styling in here and need some artwork to fill in the empty frames and a frame to finish off the George Washington, but it's getting there.
The Dining Room - We're thinking about doing a Nelson Bubble Lamp over the table, but that's still up in the air.
The Kitchen (with the Living Room in the foreground) - Where to begin? We need a breakfast light fixture...etc.
Over time, we will replace the original beige tile and carpet in our home with hardwoods and the outdated kitchen will be gutted and revitalized with modern cabinets/appliances, but in the meantime, we'll start adding character to our house with a bit of color on the walls and updating light fixtures and window treatments.  Our house was built in 1991, and while the original owner meticulously maintained the home, e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g is original! 

Stay tuned for updates and photos as we make progress...


  1. Looks pretty good..... thanks for sharing

  2. Well, this is true. Nor is the driveway. But I was thinking more about the interior components. That being said, if I am to be completely honest, the refrigerator and dishwasher are newer. But I think that's it!
