“House” It Going? 

Posted on Updated on

Long time, no post, right?! As much as I hoped I’d be blogging more, it’s like I can’t seem to catch up with life! But I had to share this post with you because it’s a giveaway for all my Birmingham-area friends! 

Standby for details. 

First, you may or may not have known that my family and I welcomed our newborn on the same day we closed on our new house! Yes, it was an insanely crazy time to say the least. So you understand why getting settled has been a slow-going process. We aren’t anywhere near finished. Mind you, we moved from a two-bedroom townhome to a five bedroom house, so filling it up is going to take lots of time and dinero. And last I checked, money trees weren’t included with the property!

Here is a shot of the new abode! 

Since we moved in, I’ve been a lot more interested in…ok, obsessed with… home decor! 

We got new living room furniture, but still need an area rug and accessories. This is where we are so far. 

We still need to do something about that obnoxious tv cable! At least it’s functional and the furniture is cozy! Also, forgive the lighting discrepancy. Life happens and I didn’t have time to take all of the pics in the daytime! 

As for the kitchen, I know white is all the rage right now, but granite and dark cabinets came with the house and I still love the style. But because it is on the darker side, I’m trying to keep everything else lighter. It’s still pretty bare bones, though. We need to get appropriate-sized counter stools, which will be an ivory or oatmeal color. And wall art will be in lighter tones, too. 

Our dining room is what it is. We bought the dining set from a friend for $50!! It works well in the space, but eventually I want to get a round table with more luxe seating. 

I’ve included some “pinspiration” of what I’d like it to become eventually! I can dream, can’t I?! 

As for the rest of the house–the office, guest/media room, master and kids’ rooms are all way too incomplete to even bother showing you! But I’ll try to update you as things progress!! 

In the meantime, you can bet your next mortgage payment I’ll be pinning away for more ideas! You can follow me on Pinterest here. I’m also hoping to get some inspiration from The Birmingham Home Show

Enter the giveaway! 

I’m giving away four family passes–that’s four sets of 4 tickets!

The Birmingham Home Show lasts from February 16-19th at the BJCC. It is jam packed with seminars, outdoor and living ideas and tips, home improvement and design ideas as well as the hottest new products. You can get more details by clicking this link. 

 To enter for a family pass, all you have to do is comment below and tell me what room you love to decorate most! The first four comments win!! 

Good luck! And as always, thanks for reading!

    Your house is looking beautiful! My parents keep telling me it is a lifetime process to get “settled in.” My favorite room to decorate is the living room because that’s where my friends and I hang out. I always want my personality to shine through.

    The Dining room is my favorite to decorate. We never use it, so it always stays clean and pretty.
