I'm excited to finally share the design and mood board for the second most used space in our home, the family room! Now that our "secret" is out about our little love on the way, you can see why we have been more motivated to get these final interior house projects finished and get our home really ready for our growing family.
Because we spend so much time in here, and will continue to do so with a new baby, our family room needed some extra attention. We needed new furniture that would allow for a better use of our space within the existing layout, and that would highlight the painted brick fireplace while allowing you to still watch TV. During their "Buy More, Save More" sale, we recently purchased cozy, family-friendly furniture from Pottery Barn. We chose the PB Comfort Grand Armchairs and Grand Sofa in a performance fabric (Heathered Tweed in Pebble) so that it would withstand anything life (and pets and babies) throw at it. I love that these pieces will stand the test of time, both in style and durability.
Hello friends, hello family, and hello 2020! It's hard to believe another year has passed and a new decade has begun, but when you add in a complete house renovation and moves, it's really not that surprising. Now that the holidays have come and gone, and the Christmas decorations have come down, it's officially time to start the new year fresh and rejuvenated and ready to work!
As I have mentioned before, I wanted to post more regular updates of our house progress as they took place, but all of our efforts and energy went directly into the house and keeping up with our everyday lives. Now that things are a bit more settled, I'm excited to finally share more details behind the design of our house, starting with the heart of our home--the kitchen!
It's been about a month and a half since we moved into our new home, and while we are still getting settled, we have been enjoying every minute that we get to spend here. Although our to do list is still quite long, we are taking things a bit slower this season and enjoying our life, our new home, and quality time with family and friends. It seems with each passing year life tends to get busier in the fall, and as soon as the highly anticipated holidays arrive, they are over before you know it.
When Ryan and I were first married, I had every intention of sending out Christmas cards to all of our loved ones with beautiful photos from our wedding. Because it was the busier time of year, and we had our honeymoon and so many pre-planned events, and then the holidays, time slipped away from me and I never got around to it. Fast forward six years, and I still haven't "gotten around" to it. We started to joke that having never sent Christmas cards before, we might as well wait until we have something really exciting to announce before we send any out. Now that we've moved into our new home (and have a new address), we want to share that excitement with our loved ones, so this seems like a good excuse to finally get around to it! Which is why I am so excited to partner with Basic Invite to show you all a peek of our very first Christmas card!
