My House Tour: Den and Powder Room


At the top of our stairs is this charming little space. With all original heart pine paneling and floors...it kinda begged to be a small den. 

I had my grandmother's sofa recovered in navy velvet and found the bamboo coffee table at an antique mall for $10. The mid century chairs were another steal from an antique mall too...and look totes modern in a fun new geo fabric. 

Toss my zebra hide over a jute rug and I am a happy girl. :) 



Here's a little peek at our powder room too. I used a metallic gold grasscloth on the walls, and some of my favorite Scott's finds.....gray and white oyster plates and landscape watercolors. 



Hope you guys have enjoyed this little tour! I will be sharing a big holiday tour in about a month, too! Can you believe that Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner?!?!

My House Tour: Guest Rooms


Upstairs, there are two rooms nestled under the eaves of this house. I love their angled ceilings and its been a favorite place when we have company. The first one is this fun space that I painted Newburg Green - a teal-y blue green navy that I am a little obsessed with. I've probably shown 5 clients this room for the color and they all love it too! 

The headboard is one I have had since I was a freshman in college. I finally had it recovered and used the white bedding I've had forever here.



I did blackout drapes on the window too, so this guest room is definitely cave-like and gives our guests some good sleep! 


The other guest room is a lighter and brighter space. I re-used the drapes from our last house, and had some of them made into other pieces too. 
The soft blue on these walls is Silver Crest - a pretty, soft, pale blue-grey. 



This room is full of things I already had, just used in a different way now. Except the headboards. Those are "new". My MIL was selling these two twin headboards at a yardsale and I snatched them up so fast! Thanks Pammy! 





Our little den is up next!

My House Tour: Henry's Room


It has been wonderful having Henry's room so close to ours. He's a great sleeper, but on those "off" nights, having him right next door has been great. 

Even though he's 2 and a half, he's still in a crib. I can't bear to take it down yet, and he's perfectly happy and contained which is worth a lot. :) 

His crib was floating in the middle of the room at our last house, but this space has a nice long wall where it fit well. 
My grandparents' old American Flag hangs over the bed behind Plexiglass. 


We rock Henry at night and say our prayers, which is the sweetest time. He's happy still doing this whole routine and so is his mama and dada! 


It looks quite green in this pic, but the wall color is my tried-and-true: Coastal Fog. I love the greige tones and it works so well with his stuff. 




Henry's got his own little bathroom where we do our night time routine too. He loves bath time and could stay in for an hour if I let him! 



Hope you guys enjoyed my little one's space! I'll be sharing our guest rooms next.

My House Tour: Master Bedroom


The wall of windows in this room is one of my favorite things in the house. And the light here is amazing. The windows all look out into our back yard, so you see a lot of green through the shutters. 

From this angle, you can really see the beautiful blue on the ceiling. I used Sabre Grey here (1/2 formula) and Linen White on the walls. 



The creams, and blues, and whites here just make me so happy. They're calming and light, and I love all the white bedding.

My big nightstands are painted Half Moon Crest. 




We worked on the master bathroom a bit over the summer too. 
I raised the mirror, and installed a mirror-mounted sconce. We painted the walls Linen White and raised the vanity that was already here. We went with a marble countertop and polished nickel fixtures. 




This seemed like a fun place for my little nudie collection too.


Happy Wednesday to you all! 
See you tomorrow!

My House Tour: Living Room and Dining Room


These two rooms have been fun for me. The scale of them is definitely different from our last house. But I have loved the cozy feeling of this original part to our home. 

We never put a TV in this room, which I am happy about. Its nice to have a quiet place just for conversation. 

The walls are 1/2 Linen White and 1/2 White Dove. I used an eggshell on the walls, and a semi-gloss on the trim. 


You'll recognize most of the pieces in this room from our last house too. My old trusty cow hide, I love it everywhere I've used it. 


I've always wanted to do a gallery wall of old paintings, and I have enjoyed this little collection of mine. The pillows underneath, on the sofa, are always different. I rotate them around a ton! 






The previous owner had these two rooms flip flopped, but it seemed to work better for our needs and furniture to use the larger of the two spaces as a living area. 

In the dining space, I added the ship lap to the bottom perimeter of this room, and painted the trim here too. Its Cos Cob Stonewall. Weird name, awesome color. 
Above that, I installed caramel grasscloth. 
I. Love. It.





The small foyer and entry way connects the living and dining rooms on the front with the kitchen and keeping area on the back. 

I installed this happy sunburst wallpaper here, and it makes me feel good every time I walk in my front door. :) 




Next up, tomorrow is our Master Bedroom!

My House Tour: Kitchen, Keeping Room, and Porch


Hi guys! 
I know I've been promising this for a while now. Thanks for your patience! 

I finally had time to take pics of a semi-clean house to share with you all since our move back in the spring. We've been painting, and doing small projects along the way, and its a fun time to share it with all of you! 

First up, our kitchen. Where we spend a lot of time. A lot. 
I painted our cabinets and all trim in this room Revere Pewter. For its coolness and for its neutrality. I'm a sucker for a white kitchen, but our little 1940's cottage seemed to call for something a little different. We keep the bone subway-tile backsplash installed by the previous owner, but swapped out the perimeter countertops for Delicatus granite. I'm kinda obsessed with it. 

With all the stone, I thought the balance of a wood island was fun. We painted the island Antique Pewter and used a pine countertop stained in Special Walnut. 

This space has been perfect for our little family and Henry knows right where everything is. He's a great helper and gets into watching what Mama and Dada are doing now, at 2 and a half. 


In our kitchen is a seating area (the sofa should look pretty familiar to you guys) centered on a fireplace. I used a block printed grasscloth on an accent wall just for fun. 

We sit here and watch Mickey, put our shoes on, and FaceTime the grandparents. 



At the end of the kitchen is the breakfast table. I love this angle as it shows the subtle contrast of trim and wall color. The wall color is Acadia White by the way. 


This is where we eat all of our meals. Usually, Henry's high chair is at the left end, aimed toward Paw Patrol. :) We sit here as a family to have breakfast and dinner together. 



I was so relieved that there was a great spot for my big ol' hutch piece. You guys remember it from our last kitchen? 



Off the kitchen, on the back of the house, is probably the main reason we moved. Besides the fun neighborhood with awesome neighbors and proximity to work and school. :) 
This porch has been where we enjoy grilling, having our friends over, and now that its Fall....its Game Day central. 



Y'all stay tuned, because I am sharing my house tour all week long! Yay!
