home tour

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by this page to see pictures of our home. Our home is constantly changing and evolving as our family and needs change, but this is a pretty accurate picture of how we’re living now. Hope you see something that inspires you and your living space!

I’m always amazed at how much things change in our home over time. We’ve recently made some big changes in our living room, and I’m excited to share some new images here…

After many wonderful years, it was time to say good-bye to my stenciled china cabinet. It’ll always have a special place in my heart, but we needed something with a bit more storage space. Fortunately, I found a sweet girl, who also happens to be a blog reader, who was so excited to welcome it into her home. She even sent me pictures of a couple of days later, and I loved seeing how much she loves it.

lidded baskets

We replaced it with this Ballard Designs sideboard, added a few baskets, and this armchair which we found for a steal from Wayfair.

pottery barn pillow

The pillow is from Pottery Barn, and the teal throw is a Target find. I love both, but, if you look closely, you can see how two kids can wreak havoc on anything with pom poms attached…

My kids gravitate towards all pillows and throws, so I should’ve known better.

We have a half wall separating our kitchen from our living room where we put a console table filled with baskets (naturally), books, and other odds and ends.

I’ll do a post soon on some of my favorite design/inspirational books, but here’s three in case you just can’t wait :)

This is how our living room looked a few years back (with links to tutorials)…

I posted on our living room corner redo here. There’s a tutorial for the ribbon star pallet here. And let’s not forget that french chair makeover….one of my favorite and most popular posts!

sharpie mats 2
The Sharpie-inspired photo mats are a great DIY project with lots of ways to customize for your space.

Because I always get asked, that coffee table came from World Market.  The slipcovered sofa is from Ikea.

The wicker chair makeover is one of my favorite parts of this space.

You can find the tutorial for the looped burlap wreath here. I constantly get asked about that rug….it’s from Homegoods, and I love it.

Artwork is courtesy of my favorite four-year-old, frames are courtesy of Ikea. Cheap and easy, folks…just how I like it!

My foyer makeover post highlights the changes done to this space…I really, really love how this turned out. The mirror above is from Target.

A few months ago, I added these abstract watercolor canvases to the space above the foyer table. LOVE the pop of color they add to the space.

We no longer have the below banquette in our kitchen…we took down both of those walls to open up our kitchen and living area…

This is our kitchen before…

…and this is our kitchen now:
