Hello there! Welcome to our home. 🙂 In 2012 we purchased this little 1930’s English Cottage Revival style house, and since then we have worked hard to make it our own. While there are still many things I’d like to accomplish, I’m so thankful for how far we’ve come in just 5 years. If you would like to see what our home looked like when we purchased it, click here.
I don’t know about you, but each year after taking down my Christmas decor I am left looking around, scratching my head. The house seems empty, cold and bare. Am I the only one that feels this way?! In order to bring some warmth and color back into our home, I tend to look outside for inspiration. This year I used lots of cozy throw blankets, fresh and faux winter foliage, wood textures, and pops of bright white to decorate with.
So let’s begin the tour! When you walk through our 80 year old front door, the entryway is the first room you’ll see.
To the right you’ll find a piano bench that I rescued and painted, along with a $15 mirror that I found at a local antique store.
This 3 tiered basket was a thrift store find, also $15! If you stick around long enough you’ll discover that most of my home is decorated with thrift store, garage sale, and side-of-the-road finds! 🙂
To the left of the entryway is our living room space.
Our living room is full of DIY projects, including the board and batten wall, the barn door, and the fireplace built-ins.
Our living room has a beautiful arched opening leading right into our dining area. The dining room is one of my favorite rooms to decorate. The buffet, farmhouse table and shelves are all perfect areas for switching things around when I’m ready for something new.
I used some twine and a gray poster board to display some comfort food recipes on my buffet 🙂
Glass, wood, whites and greenery is a favorite combination of mine.
Our dining rooms flows right into our galley style kitchen. When we purchased our home, the previous owners had just remodeled the kitchen. We simply painted, added new hardware, corbels, and a subway tile back splash.
We also added a DIY chalkboard and shelves.
I love looking out the window at our redbud tree. It makes washing dishes just a little bit easier.
Our guest bathroom is right off of the dining room. While it might be small, I love how this little space came together.
My Dad helped us build this sink console, made from five dollar fence posts I found in a clearance bucket at a lumber yard!
